Sacrificing Blood for points…

By far the craziest thing I have seen today (Being that I’m writing this at 9:12 AM today still has a lot to live up to) award goes to this little gem of a DS game.

It has to be seen to be believed. It’s a game that tests your blood for diabetes. 
Well more accurately it is a device that tests your blood glucose levels which 
then plugs into a DS that is connected to a game. 
Marketed, I’m presuming, as an incentive for kids to test themselves often 
with the promise of reward. Can this work? I’m putting myself into the mind 
of my self at the target age. I would cheat – surely the more blood the more 
points right? So combine a pencil sharpener blade and a pint glass and you have 
soon to have your grand champion with a total of 200,0000 points. Sure I now
need medical attention and can no loner stand un-aided but check those points! 
Beaten only by Jimmy Carter who gets regular nose bleeds.
Can’t wait to see what they do with the pregnancy test version of this. Idiots.

  1. Hmmm I have to say that i think this is a good idea actually. I mean, if a child has diabetes and has to check their glucose levels every day then it's kind of nice to make it a bit more fun. Plus it will make them feel special because they can play a game that their friends can't, though i doubt that will compensate for not being allowed a goody bag full of sugary sweets at the end of a birthday party!I have consulted my 10 year old niece on this and she says it's a good idea and has even asked whether the number of points rewarded is influenced by the glucose levels (which would be a good idea because then kids would be rewarded for keeping them in check). She did however, say that whilst the idea was good, the game itself looked pretty lame!
