Nintendo sends a birthday gift to Bush

President Bush turns 60 tomorrow and Nintendo of America is honoring the occasion by sending him a DS Lite game player and a copy of the game “Brain Age.” Nintendo reports that it delivered the gift to the White House but has no idea if Bush will actually see it.

The game will calculate your “brain age” by giving you a series of equations and other problems to solve. I would like to see what Bush’s brain age adds up to.

Nintendo cites a U.S. Census Bureau report, which says that about 7,900 Americans will turn 60 each day in 2006.
