Marriages are GAME OVER when the man won't stop playing video games.
Enjoy Bill Maher's hilarious video.
It's possible to plunge so deeply into the rabbit hole of games and fantasies that you never escape. I never read many comic books, but lots of MAD magazine when I was tween age, and Heavy Metal in college because of the imaginative stories and surreal artwork. I also read a wide spectrum of literature starting about age 12. I had one foot in the real and one foot in the fantastic. Bill is taking aim at arrested development, and even if he's got a heavy hand about it, he's also got a point.
I feel a little caught in the middle here. The bit was funny but also a little mean, but that's Bill. I don't read comics but really enjoy the super hero movie genre and only occasionally play video games. I don't particularly think someone is childish because they like, read and collect comics. There are many interests/hobbies that people have that by his standards could also be considered childish. But I think your behavior is the criteria that should be used not where your interests lie. But just because you read classic literature and don a suit does not necessarily mean you are mature. I get down on my hands and knees to play with my grandkids, does that make me childish? Besides it wouldn't hurt any of us to maintain a little childishness. IMO
There was nothing hilarious about it. Minutes earlier Maher railed on Bloomberg about criticizing those who choose to smoke marijuana. Then he himself turns around and ridicules those who choose to follow the myths they enjoyed as children. His lack of consistency belies a lack of understanding.
I like superhero movies and I also represent criminal defendants in court with their very lives at stake ... possibly among the most adult of actions one may perform. So to me Mahers' view is idiocy. The fact that he uses a buy-bull quote to support his little diatribe is just laughable and ironic coming from Mr. Religulous.
