23:20-- yesitsme: Did you know that if Nintendo stopped selling things RIGHT NOW, they would still have enough money to run at their current status for something like the next 50 years?
23:22-- yesitsme: They still have sales of their various products old and new -- including games -- that clip along at a pretty phenomenal rate. EVEN considering the myth that most people prefer to game on their phones now. (Which is up for debate.)
23:24-- yesitsme: I hear they are still putting out some pretty hot games - and have more anticipated ones in the chute.
15:03-- ranger1: I've always been the type when I fly to talk to as few as people as possible, so I guess I don't notice if the flight attendants are having a bad day lol
15:06-- ranger1: I believe it. Nintendo can just re-release old games with updated graphics and it will sell.
17:12-- yesitsme: Yea. Re-release is what they do some of.
17:20-- yesitsme: ... and btw, I guess I was kind of referring to Nintendo handheld gamer devices. The home consoles... I don't know. I bet Playstation or Xbox has them beat on those. But there is some game coming out for Wii soon that even a reluctant sonny is considering getting the Wii U for.
17:20-- yesitsme: Did you know that you can no longer get those original-style Wii consoles?
17:22-- yesitsme: Wii U or nothing - w internet access now. There is a new Wii Mini that looks great for younger kids/those that don't need to bother w internet.
17:23-- yesitsme: I think it's a Super Smash Brothers re-release. That one is a classic!
17:24-- yesitsme: He never plays Nintendo console anymore. Just handheld. I get to use his old-style Wii for internet access on my TV.
17:27-- yesitsme: ... and sometimes for looking at pictures.
17:27-- yesitsme: (Photos) on an SD card
17:29-- yesitsme: Zune. Can't get those anymore either. I still have one I use all the time. They quit making them.
17:29-- yesitsme: Years ago. Hahah!
17:30-- yesitsme: (you can see we don't do Apple products. No 'i' anything)
19:42-- ranger1: You can probably get a used Wii for $30 these days anyways.
19:43-- yesitsme: Yea. Or less!
19:44-- yesitsme: Here is a comment I liked about the latests riots in Ferguson;
Randy 7 hours ago
19:48-- yesitsme: ... except I feel bad for the business owners. No fair for them.
19:49-- yesitsme: ... and not that there WAS Fed Money coming for Ferguson. Was there last time they rioted?
19:49-- yesitsme: Shouldn't be.
19:51-- yesitsme: It's a far out concept in the comment - can't happen. But I get the sentiment.
19:54-- yesitsme: It just doesn't make any sense to show you are angry w a court decision in that violent way.
19:54-- yesitsme: No sense.
19:55-- yesitsme: It ain't the way "to fight".
23:35-- yesitsme: Oh wow... sorry. Comment didn't 'stick' cuz I copied and pasted it, or whatever
23:39-- yesitsme: It was a guy saying that the riots were no way for a community to react - that the simple solution is not to give them any Fed Money for repairs or restoration - to just pull out all the police, fire, and civil service from the community and let the people live with that, and build their community how they want to (and reap what they've sown in other words.)
: Three of the remaining contestants on The Voice are from North Texas. Two of them were being interviewed by the news media tonight and one of the guys (Craig Wayne Boyd) said his grandmother lives in Forney.
1:25-- yesitsme: Cool! Boyd. Hmmm.
1:25-- yesitsme: Did you watch it when there was a guy named Nick or Nic or Nik that had to sing
1:25-- yesitsme: 'Blurred Lines'?
1:26-- yesitsme: He was in the top 25 finalists at that time.
1:28-- yesitsme: Maybe Mat will post it. "One of last three The Voice Contestants has Forney Gramma." Hah! Wouldn't put it past him.
1:28-- yesitsme: It Happened.
