Okay, so video games obviously do not provide aid in perceiving the real world if your perception of the real world is already skewed by a huge slap of stupid.
Take the case of NASCAR driver Carl Edwards. We understand that NASCAR entails going round and round... and round and round... quite rapidly in cars. Carl was doing so at the Camping World 400 at the Kansas Speedway track this weekend. He was going round and round fast, but not as fast a Jimmie Johnson. So, Carl tries this trick... we'll let him explain:
"I planned on hitting the wall, but I didn't plan on the wall slowing me down that much.
"In video games, you can just run into the wall and run it wide open. That's what I did, but it didn't quite work out the same as the video game."
Yeah, Carl, and in video games you can also get your head chopped off... and come back with MORE LIVES!http://www.courant.com/services/newspaper/printedition/sports/hc-autoup0929.artsep29,0,5796157.story
