Video Game Injuries Are Up

I know I shouldn’t laugh, but you have to admit these statistics are pretty damn funny. Video game injuries (repetitive strain injuries) are way up while traditional injuries from skateboarding, climbing trees, etc. are way down.

Those suffering serious repetitive strain injuries last year after spending hours glued to consoles on games like huge hit Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare are up a massive 60 per cent since 2002. Meanwhile there was a 50 per cent drop in youngsters aged 15 and under hurt pursuing the traditional childhood pastime of climbing trees.
