The Truth about Goats

Playing video games leads to lower GCSEs but more fun

The National Children’s Bureau for the ‘bleeding obvious’ has discovered that ‘d@$king around on the Xbox’ rather than doing your homework, might be a barrier to academic greatness.  By contrast research initiated by all teenagers, has revealed that all work and no play makes Jack a ‘swat who no one invites to parties’.

Wouldn't you rather be here?

These almost contrasting conclusions have split scientists; particularly those who spend all day starring at data on a computer screen in the hope of proving that starring at a computer screen is bad for you.  Meanwhile, figures suggest that children who play video games twice a day are less likely to achieve in exams, but 100% more likely to kick your arse at ‘Hearthstone’.

One teenager replied: ‘I know playing ‘Rocket League’ instead of revising is bad for me.  But so is smoking, drinking and trying to get girl’s pregnant – but I’m gonna have fun trying.  Now excuse me, I need to get totally badass by chainsawing up a hellspawn in this first person shooter’.

The same study has found no link between social media use and exam performance, but has noticed a correlation between the use of Twitter and essays that are only 140 characters long. One scientist admitted that: ‘Teenagers are likely to persist with things they enjoy even if they know it’s counterproductive.  For instance, constant masturbation may stunt your cerebral development; but who wants to find a cure for cancer when you could be having a sneaky wank?’

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
