are Wii safe?

As we all know, gaming can be a dangerous proposition. And in this age of digital enlightenment, we are at once enjoying more freedoms than ever before, and yet still shackled to our material, tangible, and very breakable world. Wii owners such as myself have a lot to be thankful for: wireless controllers, motion sensitive games, and a more active, immersive experience than ever before. There are dangers though, and recently these have started surfacing on the web. I've seen more than one site in the past few days, dedicated to the ill fated Wii owners. but the online repository known as Wii Have a Problem is probably the best. Check out the site for tragic tales of wii induced woe. And pray that it doesn't happen to you.

Interestingly enough, in response to these continued reports of gaming accidents over the past weeks, Nintendo has sent out a safety update reminder email to all registered Wii owners. For safety's sake I present it to you now. Click on the image for a larger version.

Please everyone, play safe.
