The red button


The EU Parliament has decided that all video game devices need a "red button" as a kill swtich for parents to shut off the machines. They seem to think that parents are too dim to know how to shut a machine off and keep their children from playing it. reports on this farcical pronouncement from the EU meddlers. If the Parliament wasn't so serious, it would be hysterically funny.

The EU is actually under the impression that only children play video games and that all parents are luddites. Parents know how to shut the game off well enough; they probably even know how to fake it so it looks like has been turned off so they can come back to play after the young ones have been trotted off to bed.
