ages ago when my friend got a PS2 (when they were new) he gave his old PS1 to his younger brothers (5 and 6 at the time i think)

they had a lot of fun wit hthe PS1 until the younger one decided he "wanted to play ice cream" (his words not mine :wink: ) and promptly dumped a big scoop of ice cream in the disc drive, shut it and turned it on :lol:

and you talk to the queer?

I once sold My NES collection I got from my cousin, 3 NES's, 10 controllers (a few dogbones in there) ROB, over 100 games (including a CIB tengen tetris) for $65 or something like that so I could get kirby crystal shards and the strategy guide for N64. I got the games from my cousin when I was 3.

Every PS3 I've seen has been either frozen or off. (It can be hard to tell, and I never asked the store dudes.)

hmm, dumbest things ive seen... one guy i know smeares peanut butter on scratched nonworking disks, then wipes it all of in hope of repairing it. sure, if the disk is broke it isnt a problem, but dont forget about the laser reader lens. another kid i know soaks his game disks in soapy water to try and remove grime. and this other dumbass i know actually TAKES APART his consoles to repair them! :shock: wait, that does work... :roll:

my neighbors have 4 kids, all under twelve. They have an XBox, Gamecube, and two laptops. They have lots of games, but they never go back in their cases. They also have 3 iPod nanos, and their mom doesn't seem to understand that not all electronics are high quality. They have all sorts of stupid crap that never gets taken care of. it's painful to be over there.

I don't want to make an "I'm leaving" thread, but I've sort of lost interest in this board. So if you notice that I'm gone, that's why.

Washing discs in soapy water DOSE clean them, just leave them to dry before use.

Every DS i've ever seen at a store has been scratched so much the screen was very difficult to see. And with the stylus through the top screen I've seen the same thing :cry:

The title of the thread says "Scariest", not completely retarded. You know that Tengen Tetris is worth AT LEAST $25, right?

so does the peanut butter thing. You have to use the peanut butter oil though.

I think we all know it didn't....but I guess I laughed at how he was able to get his tongue to reach the laser. Aw kids...it's just not worth buying the brat a PS3 sometimes. :wink:
That was just the foreplay...

Scariest thing I've seen is a friend paint his NES with permanent marker. It looked so trashy, and he tried to remove it, and he had blotchy purple marks that looked like crap. Needless to say, he ruined that NES because he wanted it to look black.
