Are pocket bikes really that popular? :-? Don't see many of them around here. :-?
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

i'm going to myrtle beach next week. its not as bad as it looks though, i'm not actually going to be in the myrtle beach people know, i'm going to a sahavas in this privately owned part of it. its like the last woods in myrtle beach. its a completely different world...anyways in myrtle beach itself its hard to beat the big mafia-front beach stores and endless japanese steakhouses and (mini) golf courses :-D

How could they have none of the first Nintendo, Super Nintendo, or the Game Boy? Those things led the way for video games as an accepted part of our culture, much more so than arcade games.

Agreed. Arcades were big, but console gaming definitely deserved a mention. Maybe they were left out because they were certainly not a fad... :-? :-?
