Binge Thinking Alarms Health Minister

Government Health Minister Tony Ryall has expressed concern at the level of teenage thinking, particularly on Fridays and weekends when youths gathered together for thinking binges.

“I’m in no way critical of responsible social thinking,” says Ryall.

“If people share a few thoughts over dinner, then maybe a small think before bed, that’s fine with me. But since we lowered the thinking age to 18, younger and younger kids can get hold of thoughts from older kids, which leads to excessive and unsupervised thinking.”

And it’s not just youth binge thinking that worries the Minister: “Of course there are adults who can’t handle their thoughts – they think excessively on their own and that can lead so a slow slide into dependence.”
