the foxnews one about violence in video games

they cited a study where "people showed an increased agressive response after each day when playing violent video games for 3 consecutive days"

ok..what rating was that game give, how realistic is that game, hell what game is it, and how old were the "people"?
were they 12 year olds playing CoD? i can totally see that
were they 18 yr olds playing Duke Nukem Forever? that is probably a by product of how shitty that game was
25+ yr olds playing WoW in MoP? dailies

yet people seem to lap this shit up....
makes me /facedesk repeatedly

Ah yeah... nevermind that the US is really an statistical outlier, not that the truth has ever stopped Fox news before

I bet Fox news "scientists" are completely baffled by Canada, I mean, they also watch violent movies and play video games...

Baffled and infuriated. I mean, just look at it up there, acting all Canadian and stuff. Like it knows something they don't.

I've wondered for the longest time how many mass killings (and what sort of killing) it would take to crack America's gun culture.
I hope this is it.

/me enjoys Australia's decent public heathcare and a gun murder rate even lower than that of canada.
Ellifain @ Khaz'Goroth does not approve of torture, save where there's experience/rep/loot involved.

Then have them look at the scandinavic countries and really become a mess (well functioning socialism with a relatively free market - I mean in denmark only 1 party wants to abolish the socialist welfare state model we have, and they are at below 10% in the polls - the others merely haggle over how big and what areas are the most important - lowest income tax bracket of about 37-39% depending on municipal tax rates)

What a coincidence. I tend to show an increased aggressive response after every time a person tries to cite Fox News as a legitimate source of anything.

And strangely I do the same thing when someone singles out Fox, as if any other form of cable news is any better. Hell about 99% of their reporting is identical (most of which is just repeating a feed anyhow). I stopped watching/listening to the mainstream media a long time ago, because it's all terrible.


Now to the reason I jumped in here:

I'm not opposed in theory, but I'm also a sissy (I can't even watch "Dr" shows on TV like ER and stuff) so I really doubt I'd be able to eat them if they still looked like worms.

So I'm assuming the eggs are what looks like rice?

Was bored so considered to fire up Skyrim again, never really felt "done" with it. As done as you can be with a game like that, anyway. Stumbled across this in the process:

http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/12/20/an-il ... 0&ns_fee=0

I love things like this, making your own fun. I never do them myself though, so figured I'd fire up the game and try and do something similar. Amusement part ends here. Frustration part: Game bugged up at the executioner at the start. Dragon just flew aimlessly around and the executioner just stood there, looming. The Buggy Scrolls strike again. :(
