Are your parents pissed at how much time you spend playing StarCraft?  If so then tell them to check out this article by Cracked’s Christina H about StarCraft and Korea, a country so into StarCraft that they have made it a professional sport over there.

From the professional StarCraft league with players that can make like six-figures a year, and have championships that drawn in more spectators then the Super Bowl, to players who live in special camps and train for ten hours a day 6 days a week, and in some cases need a license to be considered pros, StarCraft is sounding like less of an professional sport in Korea and more like a religion.
