Rubbing Alcohol, and Q-Tips. There you go, I just gave you the secret to making your 20-year-old NES work like it's only 10-years-old. Pour a little alcohol into the cap of the bottle, dip the Q-Tip in and then proceed to rub the alcohol soaked end on the inside of the game cartridge where the game is read, then use the other dry end of the Q-Tip to soak up any
excess alcohol left inside. This technique has gotten every single game that I have tried it on to work.

After I got the system up and running I cleaned up the NES and hooked it up in my living room where it will remain. My next quest will be to find the hidden NES games at my parents house where I know some games I used to own are, including what may be my favorite NES game of all time - Mike Tyson's Punch Out!

Cars.

It's raining out right now, so my car is getting washed. I've never paid for a car wash in my entire life, and I don't plan on it.

I've owned four cars. I totaled my first one, a two door, light blue Ford Escort. I wasn't a very good driver, and I caused an accident. The next one was a dark green Dodge Shadow, also two doors. I bought it from a blind man. I know, it sounds ridiculous. He actually glued wooden sticks to the switches for the locks and windows so he could find them easier. I don't know why he was driving either. That car was totaled as well, but it was because I was hit by a drunk driver. Dude ran a red, and went through my car and my best friend Matt's car who was driving right next to me. We were coming home from watching wrestling on a Monday night at a friend's house.
