Mario Kart is a favorite Wii game at our house, Max has become an expert at maneuvering through all of the different tracks.
We recently set up the Wii so it will connect to the internet, and one benefit of this is that the kids are able to play Mario Kart online and race against people all over the world. It's been fun to see all of the places where the other players are from.
Last week, Aaron discovered a way to cheat and win every time he races. I asked him if he really felt OK doing this, and he said that from now on he would only do this at night when all of the other racers are from Japan.*
Tonight, Max was about to enter a race online, and asked Aaron how to cheat so he could win.
Brielle said "Max, you shouldn't cheat, that isn't very nice. Think about it, what would Jesus do?"
Max replies................... "Is Jesus Japanese?"
*Not sure why this would make cheating OK.
Edited to add: I just asked Aaron why cheating would be OK if the other players are from Japan, and he said that if he cheated and those he beat created an angry mob to come and beat him up, it should take a lot longer for the angry mob to get here from Japan than it would if it was an angry mob from around here.
