All that is old ...
In a comment on the last post, Technobi posted a link to this article:

The gist of the article is how the Israel Defense Forces frown upon their soldiers gaming, as the pastime is indicative of having "a weak personality."

The amusing irony here is that RPGs were born out of wargames. TSR was once The Strategic Review. And I'm willing to bet my yamika that the IDF still uses war game simulations for training.

Shall be new again.
That said, the following video demonstrates why the IDF might be making the right choice. ;)

I could hazard a guess or two about why the IDF would discriminate in such a fashion, but I don't want to post a rant in response to your light-hearted video.

Thanks for sharing the link though Harley, I hadn't seen it previously.

Gotta love Patton Oswalt, that's all there is to it.
