COUCH potatoes who finish all levels of computer games could be geniuses like Professor Stephen Hawking, according to scientists.
Judging by the people I meet online.... Yeaaaah, no.
I'm pretty sure I'm not.

Hawkins the guy who takes other unknown scientists theories and claims them as his own? No thanks Daily Star. Regardless some of the people I hear online through my headset (in particular FPS'es) I'm not sure they have one iota of a brain cell between their ears.
You mad bra?
Scientists are people who make mistakes too. I'll give em a pass this time /hug
I might be able to beat Stephen Hawking at video games, but I think he's got me beat in just about every other mental activity on the planet. Also if this was true I feel like I should be a lot better at math. Curse you Calculus!!
What! Oh I gotta tell everyone!.. Sit Down MR SCIENTIST!
I are a genus!
Judging from all the intelligent discussions on N4G I agree >_>
This summary of the actual study is just stupid as hell. The study wasn't talking about the original classic SMB game. It was talking about possible levels, such as certain user created levels in Super Mario Maker. Some of those levels took people dozens of hours to complete and those people probably are smart as he'll.
