If you do nothing else but play games, of course your mind will rot. They say that too much of anything is bad for you in some way. Too much television will ruin your eye sight, too much salt is bad for your heart, whereas too much love will kill you outright. ghen books were invented, "they" probably even said that seeing too many words would make your head erupt. ——————————————————————————————————1/9—— e-mail: digitiser@teletext.co.uk Letters to: DIGITISER, PO BOX 297, LONDON, SW6 1XT.
