Video games the root of all evil
Arse, says Andrew Thomas
[Andrew is off on strange wanderings in deepest darkest America. He picked up a copy of USA Today and felt that familiar shot of agony when he realised what we could become. Lowest common denominator doesn't even come into it]
What a great article! Having occasionally subjected myself to the McNewspaper (USA Today), and usually having noticed the brain cells dying with every sentence I read, I laughed my ass off at your very sarcastic treatment of it. The "Stop press" section at the end about pets at the Iowa State Fair was perfect.
I'm so happy the people of Indianapolis have finally discovered the source of all violence, the Video Game. You know that if you add up all the bits in every single video game's ROM, it's always divisible
by 666? Yep, it's part of the architecture. And, did you know the transistors that power integrated circuits, from which computers and video games are made are powered by Satan? Yep, but the chip makers sure don't want you to know that. We ought to just ban computers completely. In Africa, the number of computers (and video games) per capita is MUCH MUCH smaller than in the US. They hardly have any violence in Africa, or else I'd have read about it in USA Today!
Keep up the great work, you guys kick ass.
I read your article on video game violence today, and I am shocked and angered. As a proud American, I desperately feel that it is my duty to help others see the truth about violence in America. You find humor in Redneck, Arizona? Serialkilla, Missouri? Come on man! Even the dumbest American knows that the rednecks are in Missouri and the serial killers are in Arizona! Please get your facts straight before you give everyone the wrong idea of what America stands for.
With kindest regards
