So, I'm cleaning up the furnace/storage room today in the basement. Just outside this room is a play area that doesn't see much use any more. There is an old CRT TV there with a PS2, Xbox, and Atari 2600 hooked up to this TV.

My kid will decide to play the Atari 2600 once in a while and today was one of those days.

He decided to play the original Mario Bros. I watched him die a lot with a look of disgust on his face. He then turns to me and says:

"Did it make you sad that Mario wasn't super when you were a kid?" He was totally stone-faced serious.
