    So I guess this is yet another excuse the ESRB/soccer moms/people with too much free time on their hands can use to bash videogames?

    the sleep scale is such utter garbage, under no circumstances would I ever fall asleep in the examples they have, so I score a 0 and apparently don't even rank on the scale
    based on what they have I am getting more then enough sleep...but being able to get 5 hours of sleep is my average <_<
    the last time I can recall getting 8 hours of sleep was something like 2-3 years ago...

    so honestly...the fact that insomnia is not taken into account makes this instant fail off the start...

    So who under the age of 50 and above the age of 12 spends less than seven hours on a computer each week? Hmmm?

    Looks like America is composed of excessive gamers, who seem to manage to get enough sleep.

    Well...if you haven't noticed steam has recently began logging time in the sdk as time playing hl2 occasionally, so time in the sdk counts toward both totals
