Funny Story: N64 Soda

When I was in middle school, my favorite thing to do was go home and play my Nintendo 64 video game console. Being a foolish kid, I often ate and drank soda around it. I don't remember how it happened exactly, but I had a two-liter fall and a lot of soda was soaked on my N64 and one of the controllers. It was literally my N64 so I made my brother play with the "bad" controller, but I remember that soda left the power button stuck in a syrup mess. It still worked and the button could move enough to function but it was never quite the same.

  2. It's learning not to put liquids by technology we all learn the hard way. Similar to a child touching the hot stove. They're thinking "wtf there's no flame, mom is a dumbass it won't be hot". Haha.

    I loved playing Golden eye with my brother on his Nintendo 64. It has the screens half me, half wherever the person I'm playing with is/doing. Mission is to find and kill each other. Tony Hawk games sucked, Sonic was my grasshopper days, and I even recall having a Barnie game. Now I'm currently not any sort of gamer. DDR, Sims, the music related games (Guitar hero, rock band, DJ hero, etc...).

    Never spilled anything in ours, ahaha. My phones have suffered more..

  4. Oh, Adam...this reminds me of something I did to my computer keyboard (before I got a laptop)...I was also drinking a coke while at my computer and knocked it over...sticky mess on my keyboard and, dumb me, I tried to wipe it all off with a wet cloth...ruined the entire keyboard and had to buy another...
    see...even OLDEN people do stupid things. lol

  5. Ouch, that doesn't sound like fun! I guess some things we have to learn the hard way. When I was little, I spilled drinks so often that my papa told me (in a sweet way) that he had thought if he'd ever write a book about raising me, it would be titled A Thousand Spills .

  6. We all have a similar story about something we cared about that we accidentally damaged.

  8. It's a lot better than getting mad and throwing the machine and breaking it. I guess my husband had a bad temper when it came to games when he was a kid and broke his lol
