I had no ride home from work one night. Instead of walking or calling someone, I went back inside and played The Legend of Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass on my DS. For 15 hours. Until it was time to start my shift for the next day.-Ty
I went on a date with a girl I met on a dating site. She seemed geeky and cool, so I was honest when she asked what my pet peeve was. I said "Pi." She misunderstood. She thought I was talking about the dessert. I explained that we treat Pi like it's a rational number when it's an irrational number and thus shouldn't be used for practical calculations, and that it's bull crap anyway, because you can draw a circle with an evenly measured circumference, so using non-terminating, non-repeating Pi as part of a calculation is faulty. She didn't say anything for the rest of the date. -Jack
I punched my dad in the face for trying to make me stop playing FFVII in the middle of fighting Sephiroth.-Tom
My friend and I called the Nintendo help line to find out how to unlock the car race mini-game mode in Mario Party 5. They didn't know. We were furious.-Josh
I tugged it to the Danger Girl videogame more times then I can count.-David
BEST: Tails (Sonic Series)

Mr. Mayor I think we should talk about some of the complaints the citizens have had lately.
Like what? Actually, wait one second I'm gonna summon a monster attack.
See that's exactly what I'm talking about. You need to stop pressing the "Monster" and "Earthquake" buttons. Actually, we should probably have them uninstalled altogether.
Listen: I was elected to this office
You created the town and have been running it for over 100 years with no elections.
Not really. There've also been some questions about your immortality, but we'll get to that later. First off, I think we should consider moving the nuclear power plant away from all the residential zones. Especially because you can't seem to stay away from the "Meltdown" button.
Ugh, but if we move it away, it could cost over $90 in extra power lines! How am I supposed to explain that to the community?
If we're talking about the budget, we should probably think of giving the fire department more than $0 funding a year. The fire at the airport has been raging for almost six years.
Oh sure, then the police department will start asking for more money too!
I doubt it, sir. Against the constant begging of the citizens, you still haven't built a single police station or hired any officers. If you'll look at the chart, the areas in red are where crime is the worst
