That was a weird dinner party.

You think that's annoying to listen to? Now you know how his wife feels.
I probably spent about half my childhood blowing into Nintendo games. Once your machine reached a certain age, that was the only surefire way to get it to work.
Then I reached a certain age, discovered alcohol, and my childhood days ended.
Well, now someone over at Andy's Electronics Projects (Andy, maybe?) has combined the best of both worlds: a game called DrunkenNES that uses a breathalyzer stuck in an old NES cartridge to create a playable NES drinking game.
You blow in the cartridge just like old times and the game tosses your name up on an 8-bit leaderboard.
Not sure how you "beat" a game where the drunkest person wins. Death by alcohol poisoning?
Regardless, as cool as this is, the hardest NES drinking game will always be when you drunkenly tell your buddies you can TKO Mike Tyson in the second round of Punch-Out!! and then they force you to prove it.
I can do it, I swear. I've just drank way too many High Lifes.
