“Remember how you had to blow on the old nintendo games to get them to work?”

“Remember how you had to blow on the old nintendo games to get them to work?”

That’s what everyone keeps saying.  I keep hearing references to blowing on the cartridges by comedians and friends… all we kids of the 80’s and early 90’s.  Do you know what I say?

No, No, I don’t. 

I remember the Intellivision.  Remember that people?  Remember Frogger?  Remember sliding the controller out of the side of the console (and that was an upgraded feature!).  Remember Frogger and Donkey Kong and all those arcade games that were suddenly available right on your television… with the Intelligent Television – the Intelivision. 

That’s what I grew up on.  No Nintendo.  No Sega.  No Play Station.  We had an Intellivision!

    Do you remember Socrates? We used to paint stuff with it, and it was supposed to be a way to “learn while having fun.”
