A Story that will make Bingo players happy:

From the NYPOST.COM:

Think elderly bingo players are simpletons? Think again, because they really have faster and more accurate minds than young people, a study says.
"Bingo players, whether young or old, were faster and more accurate than non-bingo players on many tests of cognitive function," said researcher Julie Winstone of the University of Southampton in England.

"Moreover, in certain tasks, older bingo players significantly outperformed younger players."

She added that bingo may be better for the brain than chess or bridge because it is played faster and over a limited period of time.
