The advantage to having a ten minute commute:

You can accidentally oversleep til 6:43 and still get to the office at 7:03 when your boss is pulling in.

In other news, check out this comparision of video games now and 20 years ago. Hilarious. The really funny part is I remember almost all of those old school games.

    Funny though that they still feel the need to cheat a bit. A lot of the “screenshots” from the new games are from prerendered cutscenes, which are not representative of the actual gameplay.

    But he is right, If someone handed me and xbox 360 in 1990 I would have peed my pants and forgot my name.

    Good call Slothboy, didn’t even notice that.

    And newly engagéd Fogey:

    The bulbous nose, the fiery red cap, the cheesy arm movements… IT MUST BE!

    Man, Luigi always got screwed in cameo opportunities.

    Punchout was great. The cool thing too was mario talked. A balloon would come out of his head (TKO for example) and he would say, “Mwah mwah mwah”.

    top notch.
