Lesson 2: The Proper Use of Plasma Grenades

Sooo, yeah, this is probably my favorite paragraph in any news story so far this year:

Gaming-lessons.com says its youngest “Halo 2” instructor is 8-year-old New Yorker Victor De Leon III — better known by his online gamer name, Lil Poison — who has given several lessons a month since late last year, fitting the classes in after he has done his homework. His father, also named Victor, says his son has used some of the money he earns from lessons (hourly rate: $25) to buy a hamster, named Cortana after a character in the game.
