    Now I'm going to assume, that being on this website, you've at least heard of Jack Thompson.
    Not only am I looking forward to this, but I really think Penn and Teller can skewer him even more than he's been able to do himself.
    Thoughts?

    Well, last I saw it airs the week after my debate with him.

    Yet another skewering that I'm looking forward to.
    This one will be slightly more public, though, as millions of people watch the show, as opposed to the slightly smaller audience for your debate.

    Will your debate be recorded at all?

    I certainly hope so...the website is a video website, so I can't imagine they won't at least put up a highlight reel.

    That's good to hear.
    And with the debate being before this airs, it lowers his chances of backing out because of it.

    Too bad it airs after your debate. It would probably be great insight as to what he intends to use as an argument.

    The whole idea that gaming causes violence in preposterous. However, I'm not even going to pretend some people are fucked up enough to be affected. However, you can't lay blame on an entire industry because of a few mentally unstable people. It disgusts me that 1st world countries like Germany and Australia are banning mature games. It's as ridiculous as Wal-Marts policy of not selling music with a Parental Advisory sticker, yet selling R-rated movies.
