Well, you can wander back and forth at increasing speeds until you leave.

Duuuuuude, I read that as POG museum and was like "WHAAAAAT?" but then I reread it and now I'm sad. I need a poison slammer!

I like that. A small one day to establish a small, idiomatic museum so future generations can know the Adams and Eves and geneologies of graphical computer games.

I have a metal one if you want it! Then again they weren't allowed in tournaments.

I mean no I don't still have my POGs ...

I played Pong at an electronics show in Chicago about a year before it came out. Man, I was blown away.

My lawn. Let me bounce you off of it.

You know how bad my luck is? I got a bunch of pogs as a kid (right when the trend was beginning) - I mean, I thought they were awesome - then, I go out of the country for about 4 months, I come back - the freaking trend is over, and I have nobody to play them with? Although, I was a pog ambassador to El Salvador - granted, they didn't seem as interested in wasting money on little cardboard milk caps - something about "needing to eat" and "what's disposable income?"

It's next to the Ping Museum.

The last video game people could play while smoking, drinking and carrying on a conversation completely unrelated to the game.

All downhill from there.

Let's not forget William Higinbotham, without whom we would not have Video Games as we know them. Had he actually patented "Tennis for Two", the Government would have probably owned all rights to the industry (or most of it), and no telling where we would be now.

Good man, great Scientist, Grandfather of the Video Game.

Jack and Curt beg to differ with you.
