Insurance Breaks for Playing Computer Games...

I think Allstate Insurance is on the right track.

"Could playing computer games enhance mental agility enough to turn people over 50 into better drivers? Allstate Corp. wants to find out, and if the answer is yes, it might offer insurance discounts to people who play the games."

"Under a new pilot program called InSight, Allstate will offer specialized computer games to 100,000 customers in Pennsylvania aged 50 to 75...Then the group's accident rates will be compared to a control group of people who do not play the games."

I've got to ask my friend Ben in Pennsylvania if he's an Allstate customer...
