Games "For nearly thirty years we've been having this discussion, asking the question: do violent movies, music or video games make people violent? Well according to Brad Bushman and Craig Anderson of Iowa State University, yes. Based on the results of their research they concluded in 2001 that video games and violent media can make people aggressive and violent. Based upon their data and their conclusions, however, it's safe to say that photos of snakes, crispy bacon, or a particularly rigorous game of chess can also make people aggressive and violent." And politicians?

Killing people with airplanes is what I like doing, but I'm not very fond of heights and I would NEVER take off in a fighter jet even when a real pilot is flying it.

BTW this game got a lot of protest for being too violent in the 80's:

After the "killing people with airplanes" I thought you would link to River Raid ;)

But why wouldn't you take off in a fighter jet? (with real pilot flying it) It must be awesome...

BTW that, there's Les Chevaliers du Ciel (aka Sky Fighters) film - has a much more spectacular cinematography than, say, Top Gun (in Top Gun the camera was mostly on the ground/hills; in Les Chevaliers it's typically on the airplanes), more actual flying, and (to quote Quentin Tarantino http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111218/quotes & http://entertainment.time.com/2011/05/16/top-10-reasons-top-gun-is-... ) it is NOT "a man's struggle with his own homosexuality" ;p
