Twitch streaming psychiatrist Dr. Kanojia, also known as ‘HealthyGamer’, used a brilliant analogy to compare Lord of the Rings to real life, and it actually makes perfect sense. 

Dr. Kanojia has seen a rise in popularity on Twitch as he has used his knowledge as a psychiatrist to help others. His channel focuses on gamer-specific mental health and he can often be seen chatting with streamers about challenges they’re going through.

One such instance included Twitch veteran Byron ‘Reckful’ Bernstein. Their chat resulted in the American breaking down in tears, and just a month later stating he has never felt better.

However, HealthyGamer’s chats aren’t all one to one. He occasionally has discussions with his chat and came up with an amazing analogy when explaining Dharma – a key concept of his beliefs which can be difficult to explain.

“The ultimate Dharma is Frodo and the ring. You need to go to Mordor and drop the ring – it’s painful, it sucks, it’s gonna be terrible… [but] you’re willing to do it because that’s your main quest, your Dharma.”

He then continued, adding in his role “Where’s Samwise? I’m your Samwise, I’m here to help you… you’re there whining about how you want strawberries and I’m here keeping your spirits up… but you all have to carry the ring, I can’t carry it to Mordor for you.”

The analogy seemed to resonate with his viewers and made it fairly easy to understand Dr. Kanojia’s take on life. Everyone needs a main goal to aim for and although it may not be easy, having something to aim for is worth it.

Additionally, while aiming for that goal you may struggle, but he will be there to provide support, much like Sam to Frodo.

Dr. Kanojia’s streams continue to help many viewers around the world, bringing a unique and incredibly positive channel to Twitch. There’s no doubt fans are hoping for much more content to come.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”


After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
