What about a Top 10 list?
« on: April 04, 2003, 09:27:08 am »
We could all submit the top 10 reasons to build your arcade controls and pick the top 10 to go on a shirt.

Just a thought.

People didn't think you were nerdy enough!

Building nuclear bombs has become mundane.

I can't remember the 80's the first time around.

It's a chick magnet!


Ok, my brain hurts..... next person up.
If you build a frankenpanel, chances are I don't care for you as a person.

A couple of these top ten ideas might make good slogans if they were re-worded. Certainly more clever than the other ideas.

Because Yardwork, Home IMprovement Projects, CarWashing duties and paying the monthly bills are things your wife REALLY WANTS TO DO, but has always been afraid to ask ;)

Because if you're going into debt you might as well enjoy it.

Because your garage isn't big enough to fit the whole arcade.

Because girls are impressed by a guy with a big... brain.

Because it's more socially acceptable than other jerking motions you make.

Because when was the last time you heard of the IRS seizing an arcade machine?

Because time travel hasn't been invented yet.

(Some are lamer than others...)

I can vouch for this one! hehe It's too damn heavy, she doesn't want it! If I was smart I would have dumped all my valuables in it it though! She didn't even go near it! ha. I'll have to remember that for next time! 8)

Reasons to build my own arcade cabinet:

# - That kid from Silver Spoons ain't gonna show ME up!
# - EverQuest wasn't wasting enough of my time.
# - Chicks dig a guy with a good cab.
# - Openning up a real arcade in my basement just won't work.
# - I need to beat my kids in *something*

Whatever number the previous ones were, this one's #1:

#1 -  Wife asked me to (right!).
