What a load of bollocks, seriously, actually physically giving kids cancer? What the heck next? That a video game gave someone AIDs? I swear people will make up any kind of bull shit to see video games taken off the market these days I am absolutely shocked at how the world is still standing due to stupid accusations such as this and surprise, surprise it is the Mirror newspaper.

So people are saying that video games can give kids cancer? Well this is my response to all those people who think such a thing:

Well, in Greece there's a parallel for the kind of "reasoning" employed in this type of "findings":
  • The bouzouki is an instrument [a musical one]
  • The policeman is an instrument [of the law]
  • Therefore, the policeman is a bouzouki!

Ralph Nader: Video game makers are "electronic child molesters"
Political activist and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader has come down hard on video games. In fact, he has gone as far as to call the companies that make them "electronic child molesters."

In a recent interview with Politico, Nader blasted President Obama's gun control package that was unveiled last week. The two-time Green Party presidential candidate said that the president's plan needs to go further in regulating video game creators that add violence to their games.

"Television program violence? Unbelievable. Video game violence? Unprecedented," Nader told Politico. "I'm not saying he wants to censor this, I think he should sensitize people that they should protect their children family by family from these kinds of electronic child molesters."

Read the comments section to witness crotchety parents circle-jerking.

Well, as long as viewing porn is still okay for health. Though I suppose you're still staring into the pixels of cancer.

I'm waiting for his next book to come out - "Unsafe at any Frame Rate"

How does that even work? You can't just put a bullshit claim on something, and expect people to believe it.

Yes you can. It works all the time. Check out all those stupid hoaxes that fly around Facebook, or religions, or half of what governments say. It's really depressing.
