if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

Greece is the home of civilized thought.
It would make sense that they would be the first to ban , barbaric games and be intolerant of the lack of morality inherant in them.

it was thanks to mis-wording in the law document that meant that anyone who owned a game was to have it confiscated by the authorities, the law was supposed to have been made to stop cruelty sports and the like.

According to CNN and MNBC, the main target of the law was supposedly to stop illegal video gambling. Seems like it's going a bit too far, but I'll add it to my reasons not to move to Greece, right behind mandatory military service there.

I really enjoyed Greece, but wouldn't want to live their because the whole country is full of Greeks.**  Still, for someone who doesn't have to worry about military service and who doesn't play video games, Greece probably wouldn't be that bad.

**-not meant to be insulting in any way, instead it was only meant to be funny
