NOW she notices. Mike, you coulda kept your big mouth shut. Happy now?
Nintendo makes tough little gadgets, though. I think it survived. A Wiimote can survive perfectly fine without a rubber sleeve, being tossed through a plate glass window and plunging almost five stories onto pavement. Indeed, it is the durability of the Wiimote’s surroundings that are put to the test whenever someone is fool enough not to wear… “protection”…

I’ve paid my dues -
Time after time -
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime -
And bad mistakes
I’ve made a few
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face -
But I’ve come through

We are the champions - my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting - till the end -
We are the champions -
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions - of the world -

I’ve taken my bows
And my curtain calls -
You brought me fame and fortuen and everything that goes with it
I thank you all -

But it’s been no bed of roses
No pleasure cruise -
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race -
And I ain’t gonna lose -

We are the champions - my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting - till the end -
We are the champions -
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions - of the world

To end the ‘Broken or Not’ debate…
That looks like a Nintendo DS, or mebe DSi. If either of these, it’s OK.
Both were made before the Nintendium mines ran out, and they started making things out of ****** plastic.
And I think that’s Amaya. DAMN there needs to be more of her. How else is the MikexAmaya team going to gain popularity?

…*tilts his head* Didn’t he say “bark”? I mean… he SAID “bark”, not actually barked? Because I remember that Paulo was afraid of barking… *gets hit in the head with a frying pen* Yaaw! OK, I stop senselessly complaining now… and failing at English, I guess.

Luna, paulo doesn’t have a handsome face, unless you’re into perverted abusive guys?

why are so many girls so stupid?

i swear paulo belongs in the twilight book series, he’s obviously a bad choice for any girl, but so many want him, he’s like cyanide.

lucy could’ve thrown her book, but no… she throws an expensive game, instead.

What I don’t understand is why they’re all annoyed at David and Paulo. Queen is awesome! They should all be singing along. I know I am!

“Jaws was never my scene and I don’t like Star Wars!”

…that’s not true, I like both of those.

I’ve managed to partially break all of my DS systems (and I have all four of the main ones - I don’t have a 3DS yet.) In order… my original DS has busted shoulder buttons and the two halves are only loosely attached, my DS Lite has a Control Pad that doesn’t always work right, my DSi’s R button doesn’t work (and the L button fails every so often as well), and my DSi XL has a busted touch screen. *sigh*

Funny thing is, my GBA SP and GBA are both perfectly operational. They’re both badly worn down, but other than that, they work like a charm. 8-D

Since I love that song due to how funny it can be if listened to in the right situations (for example, while racing on one of the longest tracks if not THE longest track in F-Zero GX, one of the fastest racing games in existence which also takes place in the future and thus has freaking hovercars), I would probably be enjoying their little reenactment, since such events are so random and so well-done or terribly-done that they end up being incredibly funny to me.
