Playing Games In Session Answered

Think students playing games on their laptops during class is bad? What about parliament members playing games during government policy sessions? The parliament of Bhutan, a small country in the Himalayas, has decided to ban laptops so that lawmakers will stop playing computer games while the Bhutanese parliament is in session.

It is not however true that we were always playing games, said the MP, who is from the governing Druk Phuensum Tshogpa (DPT). We need the laptops because that saves us the trouble of having to carry huge amounts of paper and documents.

He makes a good point: playing game after game of tic-tac-toe does require a huge amount of paper. What games do you think they were playing?

"We need the laptops because that saves us the trouble of having to carry huge amounts of paper and documents..." "...and sometimes old people are boring."
