Don't forget Bismark. He played lots of violent games, including invading France and Austria.

Germany is considering a total ban of violent video games following Tim Kretschmer's shooting spree at his school in Winnenden, on the basis that they incite people to do violent things. Genius. Germany, a country whose history was largely free of violence until video games, of course.

Ha
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I feel bad for Germany. I once wrote a report on the whole "games don't kill people, people kill people" thing.

I hate when people decide that they say what I can and can't spend my money on.

"Hey look! An Xbox 360 for $160! Just what I've been looking for." "You have enough consoles, you're not having any more."

"Cool, I've been looking for this book for months!" "Wait four or five months and it will be cheaper. You're not buying it now."

If it's your own money, then just buy it. They can't tell you what to do!

How do you reckon 90% of people end up getting married?

An Xbox is not worth giving up bachelor life for :P
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

They progressively lower their standards until they find a mate?

My only complaint/gripe is that some people have completely useless advice. I ask for advice and I end up with That sucks for you, ask someone else, and later. I am annoyed.

YOU asked THEM for advice, you're in no position to complain.
