Greek Government Bans ALL Computer Games.

This is a very disturbing report:

"The government of Greece is making heroic efforts to humiliate the nation in front of the entire world, by banning all electronic games. That's right; something as innocent as playing computer chess on your laptop in a hotel lobby is now a crime with penalties of up to three months in stir and a fine of 10,000 euros."continued...

Ah the world over my friend, the world over....

My theory has always been and always will be until I'm proven wrong...

"Aliens do exist, we call them the government"

If they're controlling us, who's controlling them?

Just throw water on them?

Headlines, "Governments(aliens) dissolved by H2O!"


hehe, it worked in that movie "Signs"...

Say what you will about the American Government. It's self-serving, it's greedy, it's corrupt, it's foreign policy is a joke.... but at least they let us have our games. God bless America.

Since none of that seems to matter to you other than the ability to play games you'd be just as happy living anywhere else but Greece.

Such lofty concerns.

It was said in jest, sir. Don't make anything more of it than what it was, which was just a joke. Settle down.

Said in jest but innapropriate just the same. Couching your political views within a weak attempt at humor is quite the transparent technique. Try a different approach.

This isn't the right forum for taking cheap political potshots.

easy guys, what's done is done, let's move on...

salud!

Perhaps when the next weak joke/attempt at humor involves some other government we'll all try to be so accomodating and lenient.
