The 3D is bad for developing eyes is pretty much accepted (look for warnings on all 3D products). It'll also throw off depth perception for a bit in most people. In order to view the faked 3D effect you have to unlearn how to focus at specific distances. So it's not a good idea for people who are still learning.

Even the Nintendo 3DS has a disclaimer that it is bad for young, developing eyes...

Let's not be so quick to judge. I think he's watching subtitled 1970's French cinema verite.

At least the kid is eating the "generic" chips. Probably saving up for the new flat screen.

This proves TV is bad for the eyes. As for me with one eye, I won't need to spend the extra money.

I'm holding out for the Holo-deck technology myself! grin

That and a replicator and no one will probably ever hear from me again.

Or to paraphrase Slim Pickens in Dr. Strangelove: "A fella could have a pretty good weekend with all that stuff..."

ROFLMFAO! laugh

That actually sounds like me as a child!

I actually did go through a very brief "husky boy" phase pre-puberty... Before I shot up to the slim, fit, 6 foot Adonis that I am now... wink

But, I was also an active, army playing, fort building, bike riding, girl terrorizing, bottle rocket battling Boy Scout (yes, there was a merit badge for all that,) instead of the typical, passive, fat, t.v watching, video game playing, socially stunted, low attention span, spoiled dullard American brat of today.
