A professor at the University of Wisconsin claims
that playing some video games may actually make
kids smarter. Surely that’s not all they can do?

The Top 6 Ways Video Games
Have Made You a Better Person

6> You can now go eight full hours without a bathroom break.

5> You’re much more tolerant of alien races and invading
sub-human hordes than the average guy.

4> It’s given you an appreciation for archaeology (as long as
the archaeologist wears a bikini and has huge breasts.)

3> Perfect future office worker: huge forearms, nonfunctional

2> If nothing else, it probably keeps you from injuring yourself
through excessive masturbation.

and the Number 1 Way Video Games Have Made You a Better Person…
1> Turns out sitting in a sunless room playing Quake your
whole life is good for your skin. Your fishbelly-white,
never-been-touched skin.
