Why not? It is a healthy conversation topic which, as numerous bloggers have posted, is clean. On the issue of idolizing, why should those few who lack a life take away a good, solid, conversation topic?December 2, 2008 12:54 am at 12:54 am in reply to: Inspiring Quotes #1083659

I think sports is a great outlet – unless you’re going to an actual game bec. every one has much pritzus, etc. No sports games are excluded. but to listen on radio and/or to follow one’s favorite team is a good solution to passing time or as an outlet.
Obviously, it should not be such an intense passion as to interfere with learning, etc.November 25, 2008 1:11 am at 1:11 am in reply to: How do Violent PC Games Affect Our Kids? #626192
Additionally, my Rebbi told me a story about R’ Boruch Ber Liebowitz who cried that he couldn’t understand fully a Tosfos because he once saw two Polish youths fighting, causing some tumah to enter his neshama. How much more so these violent, crude games!!November 25, 2008 1:07 am at 1:07 am in reply to: How do Violent PC Games Affect Our Kids? #626191
I have a lot of past experience in video gaming, and i say that it is extremely addictive, preoccupying the kid’s mind for a while. Especially violent games. Games such as Halo, Doom, and the like cause kids to imitate the “cool moves” displayed by their on-screen character, no matter how “cartoony” or violent it is. Again, i have personally experienced this, and B”H I was able to pull out before it consumed my life totally. It blocked much learning, among many other negative effects.November 20, 2008 1:10 am at 1:10 am in reply to: Farrakhan Says Obama ‘New Beginning’ #625674

I’ve spoken to someone in the music industry about this, and yes, they lose money every time someone copies their music – those copiers would normally buy those cd’s or tapes – and it would seem to fall under the category of geneivah. in mishpacha magazine they had an interview with mbd and he said he loses tons of money from this.November 19, 2008 12:46 am at 12:46 am in reply to: A Humorous Item #1171693
