Disadvantage of playing Sudoku...A True Story

ATTN:I know these days I very much into blogging about price hike which burn my a** so much, also on EURO football that as if I'm a master in predicting, or maybe some glorious moment to enter some blog awards to shot into fame. Okay, people. Sorry about that. Can't help!!

Today's big issues are about fuel price and some EURO actions. Can't help. Must talk about those even it will make certain people bored. Alright I have something for you. Are you ready?

Okay, i'm sure everyone had heard about Sudoku, the game originated from Japan with boxes with numbers to be fill on it. Even you are not good at it, or always play at it or even never bother to solve it will find it a phenomenon these days. Estimated 50 million peoples worldwide play sudoke at least on a daily basis. Wow, Global Phenomenon. Yeap, I love Sudoku and I always played it thanks to the sudoku section on your daily newspaper.

Everyone seems to say that playing sudoku is good for your damn a** and slow brain, making it function better. But are you ready for the next stuff I'm gonna talk about. Yeah, apparently inspired by a true story, there is a disadvantage of playing Sudoku at "the wrong time". Catch this story:

SYDNEY (Reuters) - An Australian drugs trial lasting more than three months and costing taxpayers over A$1 million ($947,000) has been aborted after a number of jurors were found to have spent upto half the time playing Sudoku puzzles.
Sydney District Court Judge Peter Zahra cancelled the trial of two men on drugs conspiracy charges after the jury foreperson admitted that four to five jurors had been playing the addictive number sequence game, local media reported. The judge was alerted after some of the jurors were observed writing their notes vertically, rather than horizontally. The game involves completing a grid of numbers in the correct sequence.
One juror said the game helped them to pay more attention by keeping their mind busy. "Some of the evidence is rather drawn out and I find it difficult to maintain my attention the whole time," the juror was quoted saying by the Australian Associated Press. A new trial is expected
to begin in a few weeks once a new jury has been called.
