100-year-old lady rocks the Nintendo DS

You go, granny!

Kit Connell is 100 years old -- at that age, it's fairly likely that your mind will start to fade. Kit isn't having any of that, so she stays sharp by playing on a Nintendo DS that her daughter bought for her. And boy, does she get in the mood! She gets nice and cozy, has a nice cup of tea, and hops right into a game.

Her catalog consists of the brain training / board game fare that you'd expect a sweet old lady to be into, with a little bit of Art Academy thrown in for good measure. Still, how often do you see a friggin' 100-year-old women making time each day for some Nintendo?

She ends her interview by saying all children should be using the DS in school. I know she intends for the more educational software to be used, but I heard "videogames in the classroom"! She's alright by me!
