    lol

    I'm surprised video games weren't mentioned as a factor for H1N1, if the UK government could come up with stupid crap like this.

    Recently, scientists have concluded that children who game develop H1N1. As a matter of fact, the first person who got H1N1 is Jack Thompson, a prominent gamer. "Videogames caused my child to get Squirrel Aids and H1N1" said one parent. Another parent said that "videogames were created by Osama Bin Laden to make Americans sick". More information at 6:00.

    They blame some things to draw attention away from others.

    Gaming causes the apocolypse by rickets and Swine Flu!​

    In a recent study, scientist have found that they are all idiots who just want to blame anything on video games. More news at 11.​
