Borg children...

That news story about the strapped on headband so kids can play video games with their brains is kind of freaky! I'm imagining a world of little kiddies with headbands, staring at a TV screen, some of them having bloody noses because they're thinking TOO hard.

Sorta reminds me of that B-movie "Scanners" and how the hero has brain hemmorages whenever he uses his "scanning" abilities.

Of course, we could just go down another route and continue on with what Molly was proposing in the Buzz Report. The handbands are the first in a series of children upgrades, and eventually they will conquer all adults and rend our flesh... Ewww...
