    Default 65 Dead in Tragic Tetris Accident

    NEW YORK, NY – The buildings on 3rd Street between MacDougal and Sixth Avenue disappeared today when construction completed on a corner lot that had remained empty for 50 years. While neighborhood residents feared the occurrence was an act of terrorism, officials have concluded the event was a rare act of Tetris.


    “The Tetris Effects is as tragic as it is uncommon,” said Edward Skyler, New York City’s Deputy Mayor for Operations. “The city hasn’t seen an incident with this high of a human toll since we lost an entire block of Lower East Side tenements in the Great Tetris of 1934.”


    According to Skyler, the completion of the corner condominium building on the previously vacant lot filled all gaps between MacDougal and Sixth Ave. causing the enclosed apartments to briefly blink then disappear into the ether.


    “The bad news is we lost everyone in those apartment buildings,” said Jim McKinnley, the neighborhood's city counsel representative. “The good news is all their possessions—clothing, scrapbooks, photographs—disappeared with them, so they should be significantly easier to forget.”


    Officials ask that residents of neighboring blocks temporarily evacuate their homes. “It’s a precautionary measure really. Once one line of residential apartments clear, you never know what will plop into its place,” said McKinnley.


    Along with the horrendous death count, New York City also lost the world famous Ben’s Pizzeria. Fortunately for pie lovers, the chain stands strong in four other locations: London, Japan, Spain and Italy. Delivery will remain available to residents south of 14th, north of Spring, west of Lafayette and east of 8th.

    lost sense of humor much ?

    anyway there is something called tetris effect in real life. but it something very different.

    The Tetris effect is the ability of an activity to which people devote sufficient time and attention to begin overshadowing their thoughts, mental images, and dreams. It is named after the video game Tetris. In the game a player rotates and moves different falling tetrominoes, or shapes made up of four square blocks. If the player can arrange the shapes so there are complete horizontal lines of blocks without any gaps, those lines are eliminated. The object of the game is to eliminate as many lines as possible before the shapes fill the screen.


    People who play Tetris for a long time might then find themselves thinking about ways different shapes in the real world can fit together, such as the boxes on a supermarket shelf or the buildings on a street.[1] In this sense, the Tetris effect is a form of habit.


    They might also see images of falling Tetris shapes at the edges of their visual fields or when they close their eyes.[1] In this sense, the Tetris effect is a form of hallucination.


    They might also dream about falling Tetris shapes when drifting off to sleep.[2] In this sense, the Tetris effect is a form of hypnagogic imagery.
