  1. I really like the part in the Simpson's video with Mr. Burns comments on shooting the Nazi's. I'm starting to wonder whether there are computer games that actually help kids learn instead destroy something and blow things up? Actually it just so happens that I came across a student's new computer idea which is a kids computer game that actually promotes response through emotion. Thanks.
