Yes. We may safely say my prediction was wrong. It did not jump off as I said it would.
Wait, I think the other Joe is trying to move the goal posts for you.
Why, I don't know, since it wasn't for lack of effort on many sides.
Maybe you forgot to include the X-box dynamic in your theory. Why go out and engage in the risks involved with real violence when a "boxed in" simulation is available? It would be ironic if people blamed violent simulations for violence in the real world if they're actually smothering or preventing it to some extent. But that theory would probably need some work, either way.
....I was wrong about the riots happening in the wake of it, so my prediction is debunked.
Finally, a theory that's been falsified. That usually doesn't happen, which is why people often don't get anywhere with respect to progress in knowledge. Too busy with imagining that their unfalsifiable hypotheses are the equivalent of falsifiable/verifiable theories, I'd imagine.
