Re: It's Hard To Tell the Addicts From the Adolescents
I don't know if Tim is a gaming addict, but they do exist; at least by society's definition of addiction.
Society's definition is basically doing something more than a few hours a week. I haven't heard of any real scientific research (ie not someone trying to sell a cure) that indicates gaming can be an addiction in the same way as heroin or gambling. If you know of any, please let us know about it.
Well it depends on your definition I guess. I have read about research that indicates that our genomes are changing at a faster rate than they did in the distant past. Whether that's evolution or not I don't know.
There's no need for so-called "weak" people to die.
Quite right, but until everyone has an equal chance of passing on genes, there is still selection pressure.
Sadly waiting for old age to carry off people like him likely won't solve the problem any time soon.
It won't ever really solve the problem. His generation took over after the generation decrying comic books died out. After his generation dies off, the next will wring their hands over virtual reality. And so on.
I'm not sure how humans are likely to evolve. It seems that natural selection has been "denaturalized" by humans.
Nobody is sure how of course, but rest assured, we're evolving. Our DNA is changing faster than it did in the distant past, largely probably due to the sheer number of us. With so many births, the number of mutations goes up too.
I didn't review all of them, but that's 20 unanimous decisions against the Obama administration, which he claims is more than W. Bush or Clinton. That doesn't even count split decisions, so I think you have a case of confirmation bias.

Speaking of ancient traditions, until the late (late) twentieth century sailing women were forbidden on the grounds that Neptune still held a grudge against Minerva and would send his monsters to capsize any vessel crewed with women
