    Well, I never said that, but who cares about what I really said. Right? You're not going to let anything stand in your way of making a personal attack.

    But, since you brough it up...why is it so hard to comprehend that not everyone is just like you?

    I wouldn't count the gambling gaming machines as "video games" for the purpose of this discussion. Just as I wouldn't count training films as part of the movie industry. Video poker, backgammon, chess, solitare can all be played in the physical and the video part is just a display issue. In fact I prefer to play backgammon in the physical.

    What? Where did I even hint at that? Are you so over the top partisan that you have to bring political persuasion into everything?

    Or people can grow up and learn some people get rid of stress in different ways. I am sorry, but this is simply childish behavior on the part of the Maine GOP. I would much rather have a representive relax time be playing WoW or Madden compared to going out and doing drugs or drinking. Hell, I am about to go get a game of Command and Conquer because my mind needs a break from studying. And for anyone saying I am not ready for grown up activities, in law school, top 25% of my class, and I am a select few for potetial TAs for next semester. Whoops, guess I am not ready for anything yet.

    I apologize. It was this line that lead me to my conclusion.

    "Of all the people I know, work with, am friends with, am acquaintances with and the conversations we have, video games is never a topic."

    I missed that you stated earlier in the post that MOST of your friends don't play though if it is never a topic of conversation, how do you know? As usual, I'm not claiming everyone else plays video games but in modern U.S. society those who don't are just another fantasy right wing majority.

    The Libbos--the diversity promotin' folks--just can't believe that there are people out there that aren't into the same **** they are. When they find out we're here, they call us, "Amish", which is code for, "backwards", since the Amish basically live in the 19th Century.

    It's a perspective that resonates with many people (moreso the existing voters rather than upcoming potential voters), so it will be exploited. That's all there is to it.
