Of the 40% of Americans who own a video game console, 42% are women and only 37% are men.<br/></p> <p><b><a href="http://www.refinery29.com/2015/11/96985/women-video-game-consoles?utm_source=tumblr.com&amp;utm_medium=post">READ MORE</a></b></p> </blockquote> <p>Oops, I accidentally reblogged this again.</p> </blockquote> <p>Good info but these visualizations are really Bad </p> </blockquote> <p><a href="https://www.theverge.com/2015/11/4/9670524/pew-survey-women-men-console-ownership-by-gender-2015">https://www.theverge.com/2015/11/4/9670524/pew-survey-women-men-console-ownership-by-gender-2015</a></p> <p>The Verge of all things shows the fault in the info.  The question asked is as follows:</p> <blockquote><p> “Please tell me if you happen to have each of the following items, or not. Do you have a game console like Xbox or PlayStation?” <br/></p></blockquote> <p>A console is a family device.  And we know that more women than men are single parents.  Which skews the data in women’s favor, as it’s highly likely that a child has a console. The single parent in question would therefore have purchased a game console but not plays it.</p> <p>Additionally, using the above question, it explains the drastic shift in women owning consoles compared to sub-18 boys.  You’re comparing boys who may not have a job to women who may be buying a console for their entire family.  You’re comparing an entire family entertainment system to a boy buying a console and putting it in his room with a TV.  </p> <p>Lastly, the racial breakdown is absolutely misleading.  It’s detailing the % of a racial group that owns a console, not the numbers sold.  You could have 100% of all Indians owning consoles in the USA and that would be still a statistical insignificance.  </p> <p>This infographic is inherently misleading.  Anyone who uses this to make any sort of statement on the state of gaming is an idiot who is trying to push an agenda.</p> </blockquote> <p>I just wish people would make up their minds. Are a high percentage of gamers women, or are women not welcome in gaming? Because I fail to see how it can be both. </p> </blockquote> <p>More proof that you can use “statistics” to say anything you like.</p>

80s, Children, and Church: daviddonihue: THE FULL STORY ON CHASED! EXCLUSIVE TO TUMBLR! Sports Illustrated Model Caitlin O'Connor terrorizes children while bunny hopping in “Chased” Two kids, an 11 year old boy girl, find an Atari 2600 video game console and cartridges in what looks like an Atari landfill behind their school.  Once they plug in the 80’s archaic gaming system, it becomes clear that they are able to use their joysticks to take control of the School Principal (Sports illustrated Model Caitlin O'Conner)  and School Cop (played by WWE wrestler Mr. Outrageous! Al Burke) who against their will, go rampaging across the elementary school campus and into small town USA. But as the the levels progress, the robbers enter (played by 5 other WWE wrestlers) and the children have use their controllers to steer the real life adults out of harms way and into safety. STORIES FROM BEHIND THE SCENES - EXCLUSIVE TO TUMBLR ! Shot in the uber hip neighborhood of Highland Park and on campus at a church in Eagle Rock. Donihue calls it an ode to both 80’s and early 90’s video games and cinema - obviously influenced by Sam Rami and parodying Pac-Man era games and Sonic the Hedgehog,  the videos 80s pastel colored grading is an ode to era as much as the plot is.  “It’s like mashing freak friday, dream a little a little dream and that awful Kirk Cameron / Dudley Moore  film into the body of a cracked out real life pac-man game” says the director. Actress O'Conner did her own stunts, as did WWE’s Mr. Outrageous (aka Al Burke) who has also appeared in videos from Eminem, LMFAO, and has been one of the most recognizable faces in over 100 music videos.  Al Burke is considered a legend amongst directors world wide. O'Conner actually rolled for the equivalent of four blocks to capture different angles to be used in fx sequence See all the recent videos at http://www.SuperRadFilms.com Director: David N. Donihue Artist: Mark Sixma and Andrew Rayel Song: Chased Record Label: Armada Records
