fair enough.

i just disagree. i really think reading HP is better for a kids development than playing BG.

you said you had kids, right? if you somehow could decide where your kids interests lie, would you choose to have them read HP in their rooms for ~ 2 hours a night, or have them playing balder's gate? my preference would be obvious.
