which means that less than 1.2% of my time is spent lifting. which means that the other 98.8+ % of the time I'm either in front fo a computer or else not doing much.


to me 98.8 constitutes general inactivity

Call me crazy but I think this is a good thing! When I was a kid and Nintendo released the NES, my bro and I played it all the time and we were not fat. In fact despite the fact that we were glued to the NES TV for hours on end, we still had time to go outside run around, play soccer, cops and robbers, explore, and do other stuff to stay skinny and fit. But as I grew older I noticed that my thumbs were getting stiffer and more diffcult to bend without cracking the joints. Now EVERYTIME (like 95% of the time) I bend my thumbs they crack at the joints and I'm convinced its because of all the NES playing I used to do. I've actually contermplated suing Nintendo for this several times, but I'm a student and just don't have the time. Maybe when i graduate in a year.

So when I read this story I understand why he did it. When you buy a game console you are expecting a quality experience and you are putting your faith in a well-known company like Nintendo to develop an interface that will not injure your body with prolonged exposure. And if it does, to provide CLEAR warning about the effects, time limits, and precautions to take to avoid those injuries. It seems like Nintendo still has not learned its lesson and I hope this guy wins. This just gav eme even more motivation to sue Nintendo - how else are they going to learn? With a polite letter? HA!

What the hell are you talking about.

Because YOU spent too much time on a damn SNES you think you deserve money! I seriously hope to god there is some sarcasm that i am missing here.

Why should Nintendo pay your sorry ass because you didn't know when enough was enough. Since when did you need Nintendo to tell you that over using anything has undesirable effects.

Of course if you click a bloody remote long enough you will get some sort of injury and could further lead to arthritis of some kind.

I'm sorry but Nintendo should be suing you for being such a jerk!

I apologize if i came off rude and arrogant. but the fact that you think you are entitled to money just because you don't have any common sense is astounding to me!

Ignorance is bliss huh

Even at the age of 7+ i could tell you that playing on the computer for ages was bad. It is just something you know, something you are aware of! Same with over using anything else.

Hell, you play rugby for long enough and you will suffer from shoulder and knee problems. Let's all sue Rugby league shall we?

Bah i'm going to shut up now, i'm getting the feeling you don't give a rats AS5 anyways.

Look, I understand where you are comming from, but the NES was new for its time and at this day in age, almost three decades after the release of the first console, companies like Nintendo should be aware of the dangers of prolonged use of game consoles and should make those dangers APPARENT in the instructions. I'm sure they do now, but when I was a kid, the nes was released for only a few years and was the first of its kind. Nintendo released it too soon without knowing the long-term effects of use, and 4-7 year olds don't give a hoot about the status of thier tumbs when they're jumping on those little mushroom guys. And you can't blame the parents either because there was never anything like the NES that was so mainstream and technologically new. The parents were not informed about the dangers of prolonged use and kids didn't even care about it. The repsonsibility of informing cliens about the dangers of the product in that case relied upon Nintendo and still does (for the Wii) because these were (are) new technologies that have not yet been tested under long-term exposure. It's like releasing a new car that everyone wants to drive but has a problem no one knows about but will only fnd out about several years down the road, but with the Nintendo the problem can't be recalled because they're with my thumbs!
