First off, big ups to Dtoid for having a great blog system to help us newbies get a little recognized, that's pretty ballin'.

Secondly, ARTICLE TIME:

Pretty interesting read where 2 Harvard dudes in lab coats studied about 1000 middle school kids and saw the results. Interesting tidbit,

They discovered that children who played violent video games – those rated Mature or above – were just relieving stress.

A danger sign for boys is “not playing video games at all, because it looks like for this generation, video games are a measure of social competence,” says Kutner and Olsen.

Take that Frack Frompson. (Got him pretty good with that one.)
