Had a bit of drama at work today. My desk has a whopping sign over it saying 'Duty Warden', so normally people wander over and ask me to identify fossils they've found on the beach. Inbetween the usual "It's just a rock" someone brought in a bullet. What. It was a fairly large one too. He brought it in because he didn't know if it was live or not and didn't want anybody on the beach accidently hitting it with a rock, and asked us to dispose of it.

I'm sitting there thinking "How the hell do you dispose of live ammunition?"

Usually the only live ammunition you find on UK beaches are unexploded German shells, which are easy enough to deal with; you throw rocks at them call the Bomb Squad and run the fuck away. In the end I called the police and they said they'd pick it up right after they solved a badger problem (no, seriously). Because there's no way in hell I'm sitting in an office full of heavy fossils convieniently placed to fall on that thing.

I wouldn't be surprised if someone brought in a WW2 grenade they found on the beach. That would be an...interesting day. Wonder how fast I could clear the stairs?

Even though I'm now jobless, I was still able to get myself food that will at least last me 2 and a half week.

That's the only good news I got this week...

You put it in a gun and fire it at a tree of course.

First off, warchamp7 is even cooler in real life...for the all of 10 minutes we talked lol

Also, barbed wire is fucking sharp...got several good cuts in my back from setting it up and tearing it down tonight at a wrestling show while stepping on broken bottles. From there woulda been stranded in Toronto but the ring guy drove me home to Oshawa. So sore, sweaty and tired

Graghasgjhszagldjaygflujyasghdufyhqrufygeqroiyg!!!!!!! RAGE! RAGE!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, so this guy I know at the store I work at says he has a working NES. I've been looking for one and he promised me it worked. Well, he goes home and gets it, and I pay him. The thing is, the second he gets the money he leaves. Before I could test it. Now I was all right with that because I had loaned him some money when he needed it and he had been grateful. I had thought we were kinda-sorta friends. But when he left I started to think it might not work.

So I got home and sure enough, he knowingly sold me a bad system. I can find his number and call him up, but something tells me he's either not going to come to the store often, or if he does it'll be without my money.

So I'm out 80 bucks and I AM PISSED!

I want to destroy him! I want to peel back his skin, set hot coals on his muscles, and sew his skin back on. I want him to suffer...

Really, it wouldn't be so bad if this were the first time I've been sold a defective NES. But it's not. This is the FORTH TIME! I have bought the NES four times over and NONE of them have worked! I'm starting to think a working NES doesn't exist.

tl;dr I got screwed out of money and imad.

*obligatory brag post for owning a working NES*

But in all seriousness, that sucks man. I know how you feel, I've been through the same thing since my Uncle threw away his old SNES, and a year later I started looking for one. I've been through three "totally fine" ones, none of them even powered on.

What does work? It's not turning on? The games cannot be read? Because if the problem is the NES not reading the games, it may be because of a problem that can be solved in 10 mins with minimum effort and money.

Well, on my old and broken (I guess) NES the power button blinks and I'm not getting a feed from it.

On the Famicon Twin (The one I was just talking about) It looks like the pin connectors in the system are slightly off center and sunken on the right side. The best I can get is a pink scree, a green screen, or random monochrome pixilation. At no point did I see anything remotely resembling a game.

In both cases, the problem seems to be the pin connector.

my cousins had one in their basement. I saw them like, twice a year, and I would always want to play it. IIRC, they had mariokart, SMW, zelda, a final fantasy game, and yoshi's island, but it couldn't save.

I wonder if they still have it?

I found another way around it, myself. Rather, my brother did, but point being, I have a working NES of sorts. It's some 3rd party made system that'll play both NES and SNES games while using an SNES controller, works for me.

Pulled out my glitchy cart of Emerald.

Let's see how long I can go playing it until it dies. Protip to self: DON'T PUT A POKEMON GAME IN THE DS SLOT. KEEP ACE ATTORNEY THERE. OTHERWISE THE SAVE FILE WILL FAIL.

Also, work was really boring today. Sigh.

And my internet says it's not connected, but it is...I just can't get on to MSN. What.

I'm right there with you, except I'm also missing an SNES ( Sad ). But I also am trying to get every SEGA system as well. I need to find a new game gear, get a Sega Saturn, and If I'm really ambitious, I'll try to go for the Sega CD and 32 X for the Genesis. Then, if I want to push it, I'll try to get an original master system.

I played some Sega at a friends house,but it didn't have the same feeling as Nintendo for me.The 3 buttons on the ride side were an odd design choice(guess it was a Genesis,don't remember)

Now I want to play Secret of Mana again,damn nostalgia!
