Girls attempt real-life version of video game
Residents alarmed; teens could be charged
Beacon Journal staff report

Five teenage girls from Portage County face potential criminal charges after attempting to play a real-life version of Super Mario Bros.

The Portage County Hazardous Materials Unit and Bomb Detection Unit were called in to downtown Ravenna on Friday morning after seventeen suspicious packages -- boxes wrapped in gold wrapping paper with question marks spray painted on them -- had alarmed residents.

Boxes were found at the Immaculate Conception Church on West Main Street, the Portage County Courthouse, Deluxe Pastries, the corner of Cherry Way and Main Street, Reed Memorial Library, Ravenna High School and a residence at Sanford and Main streets.

Five girls -- age 16 and 17 -- claimed responsibility for making and placing the packages. The girls said they found an Internet site that included step-by-step instructions for creating replicas of blocks featured in the game.

The Ravenna Police Department will be working with the Portage County Prosecutor's Office regarding possible criminal charges as a result of the game.
so just becouse some crazy fundie gets scared of a evident teenagers game, the poor girls need to get charges

i dont know wich is dumber.. the fact that someone may think that terrorists want to place bombs near their ''strategically important'' houses in boxes with question marks and covered in gold tinfoil, or that autorities want to to actually give charges to the girls

i guess we have to say thanks to fox news for this paranoia... instead of saying things like ''will the fly planes into our backyards'' they should say things like not even 5% of all americans are involved in a real bomb thread...
anyway http://www.qwantz.com/posterchild/ that seem to be the website that inspired the girls

Wow, I'm surprised Nintendo didn't get blamed for this. They usually want to blame video games for everything negative just like they do with EDM and rave culture.

I've replaced the "o" in "Fox News" with a "u" from now on because of all this shit that's been going on.

Well look at that...adults say kids should get out more and stop playing video games, so they take the game outdoors and now they get cops on em for making bombs. Will kids and games ever win?
