Let's clarify here: This is a game of statistics.  One can argue
endlessly as to the bahviour of the majority of teenagers found on
any particular game.  The important point to realise is that this
does not comment on the behaviour of all teenagers, the behaviour of
any specific individual teenager, or even the behaviour of teenagers
on any other specific game.  Remember: Given a bell curve something
has to populate the fringes of the bell.
