Gary Gygax founded a game called Dungeons and Dragons back in the 1970's.
Just for information to those who read here, "I am a geek."
I played that game as a kid.
I still play it now on occasion.
Of course then, it was Dr. Pepper and junk food.
Now it's beer and beef jerky. (It takes two weeks for the smells to disappear) :)
I remember in my teens I saw him on 60 minutes.
They were asking him why there wasn't a warning label on his game, due to the fact that some people got too into it and lost hold of reality.
I remember his response.
He looked at a chair and pointed out how it could be used to hit someone.
He asked why we didn't have warning labels on those.
It made me realize that anything can be misused.
Anything can be used as a scapegoat.
Some might think he was turning kids into dorks.
(couldn't do that, I already was one) ;p
Or idol worshippers.
(I wonder if anyone watches any idol shows in america?) ;)
But the truth is, I can see him as someone who had wisdom.
After all, God made Gary Gygax.
And God can take away, as well.
Rest in peace.
