Only nerds do. Why on earth would a dumb person play those games?

To get smarter. It's not like they can get any dumber playing those games, right?

Not directly. They might have a mental condition that gets worse when they try to exercise their mind. Those conditions exist, don't they?

I've never heard of such. You aren't making up that condition, right?

Actually, no. Some people shouldn't exercise their bodies because of physical conditions. Wouldn't it only make sense if the same was true about minds?

Intuitively, yes. However, isn't the body much easier to overexert than the mind?

Maybe. I once read Tom Sawyer, by Mark Twain, in which, in one part, a kid had memorized something like 6000 Bible passages for three Bibles and then suffered a mental breakdown. I'm not sure how hard that was for him, though.

What? There's nothing wrong with using novels, is there??

There isn't in most cases, but using evidence from a fictional source to back up your claim is only something politicians would do.
It's not like you can't get less credible than citing a fictional book, right?

Maybe. Fiction books are obviously fictious and completely made up. It is pretty obvious that fiction is not a good source, right?

With "fake news" a thing nowadays, I'd say nothing's "obvious" anymore. Besides, fiction makes for good thought experiments. What worked for Einstein can work for us, can't it?
