Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Only you can prevent forest playing Advance Wars?

According to the well-educated, generally respected and often not this retarded gang at National Public Radio, the recent decline in attendance at our country’s national parks could be a result of – you guessed it – video games. No, really. That’s what they said.
The douchebag “expert” they chose to trust in this matter, Dr. Oliver Pergrams from the University of Illinois at Chicago, is the man behind the madness. Citing the results of a study attempting to determine the causality behind the decline in parkgoers (and leading to what he dubs his *gag* “Nature vs. Nintendo” hypothesis), Dr. Douche Oliver states:
“The average person spent 327 hours more per year on these media in 2003 than they did in 1987, which is a huge increase.”
NPR points out that Pergrams admits a failure to, you know, prove how games ruin parks, though they then unleash his views linking gaming to childhood obesity:
“We think it likely that these increases in sedentary lifestyle and recreation not only affect how much time people have to go to national parks, but how much they want to…”
Okay, I agree that kids probably don’t go outside enough. They spend a lot of time staring at the TV or Oblivion or Game Revolution (god bless ‘em), and that the proliferation of both interactive and non-interactive media makes it hard for them to want to do anything else.
But to then take the leap that video games somehow significantly correlate to the fact that families aren’t scooting out to Yosemite every chance they get is absurd. What about Myspace? What about chatrooms? What about Disneyland, Hollywood and the easy chick down the street they might score with? What about the fact that the kids actually have little say in the matter since they aren’t the ones with the cars and gas money to make the vacation happen in the first place? Or maybe people just don’t like the smell of bear crap, white trash and suntan lotion. Tough to say, but flinging video games into the mix as a sort of separate, evil entity is irresponsible and, most likely, totally wrong. Besides, gamers can take their games to the park with them, so chances are the culprit lies elsewhere.
In other news, eating candy might kill homeless babies. NPR story to follow.
