I don't class myself as a gamer as I don't play computer games any more :)

So they did a loada research to find out that men are lazy and women are moody? Wow! I didn't see that coming!

*scoffs* Fine line? More like both lines.

I have to say I think it is quite annoying that a study of this nature is being done. It's as if people are using science to say: We (the normies of the majority) don't approve of your lifestyle so we are going to try to use barely backed findings and statisitcs in order to try to convince you to no longer spend so much time on computers and games.

Pish.

People are entilted to live their own lives in their own ways. I live on the internet and computer games, I'm less moody than most females and I'm not overweight.

Way to go society, trying to marginalize and catogorize more people!

I think we need to ascertain (through another meaningless poll focussed on a miniscule cross-section of people) whether Washington state just generally has a larger population of fat, miserable people than anywhere else in the world.

Also was the poll done on computers?

So the fact the CDC did it, does that mean gaming is a disease?

Whenever it comes to polls and polling, I think of this classic scene from Yes Prime Minister.

Especially thought of that one when the poll for the NHS came out, done by an insurance company.
