This financial aid stuff is making the idea of dropping out and joining a traveling circus very appealing.
"What poison causes one to cough up blood" and "effects of progesterone on men" aren’t things you want in your search history.
I found these little tidbits in some Queensland Parliamentary transcripts during debate on video game age classification. [source]
Mr CHOAT: I occasionally have played computer games myself but definitely not those of the nature that this legislation is focused on. I am a product of the 1980s, so Space Invaders, Donkey Kong and Pacman are more my style.
Mr Costigan: You are not alone.
Mr Minnikin: Now you’re talking.
Mr CHOAT: That is right. My wife, Nicky, has introduced me to Spider Solitaire and we often battle over the family iPad to see who can have it the longest. Please indulge me while I take this opportunity to wish her a happy St Valentine’s Day. I certainly understand that she enjoyed those lovely roses she picked
up from my electorate office this morning.
Honourable members interjected.
Mr DILLAWAY: I recently had my own reality check. Not that I am or have been deemed or referred to as a gamer, such as the Attorney-General suggested, but I do remember getting my first computer back in 1984.
Mr Bleijie: Was it Donkey Kong?
Mr DILLAWAY: No, this was a computer.
Mr Minnikin: Commodore 64?
Mr DILLAWAY: No, it was an Amstrad CPC464 that had a cassette tape drive. I remember being greatly disappointed when my parents bought that for me because all my friends at the time had either an Atari 5200, a Commodore 64 or a Tandy colour computer with a 5¼-inch floppy disk drive. Why was I disappointed? In the context of time, they had better graphics and they were faster. Using my computer I could not only go and make a cup of coffee I could almost make a toasted sandwich before the game loaded. We have come a long way since then and our laws relating to computer games need to be in line with today’s technology and that has the ability to make the virtual world more like reality.
Mr DAVIES: Unlike many here, I am proud enough to say—or ashamed enough, probably—that I am a gamer. I have played them for many years. In fact, I am a computer geek at times. I even dabbled for a little while with a game called World of Warcraft, which is called crack for geeks.
I did those tag things out of curiosity and…oh my God, my tags are so geeky.
