    The Game Gear is a system that I sadly have not been able to experience much. I own a semi broken one from my brother's smoking friend who forgot about it but however I am unsure if I want to fix it or just acquire a new better one.

A fun experience if you have the good titles for it and a lot of batteries.

    rockshard PhD "show her it's a man's world" Trip her the fuck out with your necktie, that'll put her in her place! "Start them on a strict regimen of sodas and other sugar carbonated beverages" -- NO WAY. THIS AD CANNOT BE REAL. Lastly, Smoking santa. Why would that be banned? Santa is 1) obese, 2) drinks coca cola. But smoking not ok?
