(WebMD) Playing video games may mean spending less time reading or doing homework, according to new research on video games and children.

That news appears in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine...

That reminds me, I should be writing an essay right now...

They paid someone money to do "research" on such an obvious topic? This is further proves how far south we are headed...

Why, just the other day i cut a seedless watermelon that had a sticker that said, "WARNING: May contain an occasional seed." Utterly, utterly pathetic.

i hate to break it to you, but even though something is obvious you've got to do a study or an experiment, which you can repeat for it to be scientific or be submitted.

I dont see how these firms spend all this tax payers money to tell us what we already know.

Really drives me mad, especially when this money could be spent on better thing like Skate Parks lol
