Not sure either, other than it's something at the bottom why you post a reply...

I'm not sure either, but I think Mort's 5 beats Cincy's 2.

Speaking of dice, if this were craps, a "2" would pay 30:1, and a "5" would pay 3:2.

I'll take the 30:1, thank you.

My grandmother had Pong... one of my earliest memories is going to her house and firing up the never used pong only to find it needed new batteries... I opened the back and the battery casings had become compromised and leaked... in the effort to get my pong fix on I remplaced them and managed to get some battery gunk in my eye...

As far as household gaming consoles, the first I actually owned was the Wii... I had a Commodore 64 for years, wrote lots of code on it for various goofy sh**... at one point I had made a sprite graphic on the screen that you could move around with a joystick.... otherwise I played games... Zork... some cool helicopter game I wish I still had... another cool thing called "Project Space Station"...

Once I got into high school, we got a Macintosh IIse with 4MB of ram (a massive amount). We gave our commodore 64 to the neighbors, along with all our games.

Interestingly, when I graduated high school I went to work for a small town newspaper, and helped them set up their mac network... That got me a "consulting" gig in Crothersville where a guy published the Crothersville Times on a Commodore 64 that was attached to a massive Compugraphic photo typesetter (imagine a printer Larger than a fridge)... Anyway, I helped him set up his new macintosh for a small fee of his old commodore 64 (teenagers are cheap).

When I told my parents I had got a commodore 64, they (unbeknownst to me) contacted my old neighbors... A few weeks later a box showed up and there was my old floppy disk file with all my old games. Needless to say, I was out of commission for a week or two while I rediscovered how crappy all those games once were.

Yea, you give the egg to the thief, then kill the thief later and you will find it among his flotsam and jetsam, nicely repaired.
