What were they smoking when they wrote this

[quote from gamasutra]
A controversial new academic study has suggested that playing violent video games can lead young men to believe it is acceptable to smoke marijuana and drink alcohol, according to research conducted by Dr. Sonya Brady at the University of California, San Francisco and Professor Karen Matthews at the University of Pittsburgh.

But it IS acceptable to smoke a joint or have a drink… at least in this country…
and also in that one (as long as you do it in the privacy of your own home, and don’t tell any cops)

Or have I been playing too many violent video-games and has this warped my fragile little mind ?

Abstract of the study can be found on this weird host: archpedi.ama-assn.org

Minor theme changes…

On the header bar (next to the date, all the way in the top-left corner) there should now be ‘older’ and ‘newer’ links, to facilitate paging through the older posts.

Update 2006/04/12: There are now also links for the previous and next posting in the single-post view (comment-view)

Update 2006/04/13: Replaced header image with customized version
