As a toddler, my younger brother decided he wanted to play videogames like me so it became a daily "chore" to play Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for him while he "played" on an upside-down, unplugged controller. At age 4 he started playing for real and before his 5th birthday beat the Ocarina of Time. By age 7, he was better at videogames than I was. It's tough being a high schooler getting schooled by a 2nd grader.-Terisa

I was playing a game of Trivial Pursuit with my mom about a week ago and I was asked a question along these lines: "The skin of which animal has been often used as sandpaper?" The answer was a shark, and the only way I got it right was by remembering that Sharpedo from Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire had the rough skin ability.-Ryan L.

I've been playing Sleeping Dog non-stop, and being that the game takes place in Hong Kong, whenever you have to drive a car you have to drive on the left side of the street. So doing that for a couple of days, I guess my brain seem to now think that was the norm. I got into my car to run to the store I ended up drive on the wrong side of the road and nearly crashing my car. So for now on I'm only playing game based in the U.S.-Jovan

When I was younger, maybe 7 or 8, my dad would take me to my cousin's house to hang out a lot. Whenever I'd go over there we would play his latest game, sometimes he'd even let me take the game home for a while. The last game we played together was a Harry Potter game. After that (for whatever reason I can't remember), my dad stopped taking me for visits and me and cousin didn't hang out anymore. Eventually I started playing games by myself and even found some new gaming buddies but I always thought about what had become of him. Luck would have it many years later freshman year of high school he was a new student in my class. We instantly started hanging out again but it wasn't until a few weeks ago we played a game for the first time in 7 years. It was Half-Life and we got pretty far in it too. We had so much fun he came back a few days later to spend the night. We put on Half-Life again but the save file was corrupted and we had to start over. We decided it was worth it and played anyway. It was as if no time had passed at all and the visits never stopped. That day I learned that video games form a friendship that never dies.-Dominique

Got tired that interns keep forgetting their stethoscopes…-Arturo (see below)

And this week's "I'm Not Entirely Sure If I Believe This, But Stranger Things Have Happened (Also We Like Hearing About Ourselves)" Award goes to…

It is nearing my one year anniversary with the my girlfriend, who I originally got to go out with me by using the pickup lines in your article, 10 Pokemon Pickup Lines. Guess they are super effective.-Peter
