Readers Question Gamer Gal's Credentials

Asylum For All Mankind has some discerning readers. In particular, new writer Kathryn Lyn claimed she "has owned every system since Atari 2600." This was immediately questioned. For example, reader Geoff sounded off.

I am generally skeptical of this sort of statement, whether we are talking about a male or female gamer. Did she own an Atari Jaguar?

The editors' response was, of course, to taunt Geoff for asking about the Atari Jaguar.

Sorry, Geoff, but no one should admit to owning a video game system with jungle-cat eyes on its box.

I, for one, don't think she looks old enough to have even heard of half the things she mentions on her myspace page, let along to have seen them, done them, enjoyed them, etc. Oops! It seems that I was wrong. According to said page, she's 102. Well, in that case, I withdraw all objections.
