Thread My fourth set of joy-cons are drifting
I realize this isn't a fresh topic, but I am so frustrated that I have to once again send them into Nintendo for repairs. They did waive the repair fee given this is the fourth time that this has happened, but honestly I wish they would just send me a new or even a refurbished pair so I don't have to deal with this again. Gameboys can literally survive a bomb blast and keep going. Gah. Anyway, that's it. Just venting.

Thread Looking for simple glitches to easily pull off like the minus world in Super Mario Bros
Long story short, I showed my 7-year-old the minus world glitch in Super Mario Bros the other day and he thought it was the greatest thing ever. Now he's obsessed with glitch videos, but many of them seem to be patched out. So the title says it all. Looking for simple glitches to pull off, primarily on Nintendo games (any era will do, but Switch would be preferable including the NES and SNES games provided on the online service). Thanks!

Thread Gamer Parents: Did you start your kids off on the classics?
I believe the first game my son ever played was Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U. Now that he's 7, he plays games from the NES through the Switch. He likes everything. His favorite game is Breath Of The Wild, but he loves Yoshi's Island, Super Mario Bros. 2, Donkey Kong Country, Pilotwings 64, Cuphead, you name it. I never forced him to play anything. If he never got into video games I'd be perfectly fine. But it warms my heart that he loves Mario as much as I do.

Thread What's the worst fast food item you've ever had?
So I tried the Spicy McNuggets at McDonald's the other day and they were quite tasty. I'd probably still prefer Wendy's spicy nuggets (especially since they seemingly improved the formula after bringing them back last year), but still good for a drunk Uber Eats order. I asked for the mighty sauce but they accidentally gave me their buffalo sauce which whatever. I'm sure buffalo sauce would work in this situation right? Hoooooooooooooly shit I've never had something so vile. It tasted like Frank's Red Hot sauce mixed with toothpaste and an orange-flavored Swisher Sweets. Avoid at all costs. What about you?

As someone familiar with printing, another country can't just print "millions of ballots" and send them to the states without a huge paper trail/people noticing. Even sending basic, unprinted material from here to Canada is a huge pain in the ass. There are multiple documents and forms that need to be filled out as well as postage. Election ballots are printed on a specific stock that wouldn't be available to other countries unless we sent it there. In short, it would basically be impossible to pull this off on even a small scale, let alone a presidential election without there being a shit ton of evidence.

This is my go-to short when introducing people to the show. One time, I sent it to someone and not only did he not think it was funny, he literally didn't understand the concept of the show. It was bizarre.

Thread How would you go about reporting a coworker who isn't doing anything in quarantine?

Part of the problem is Joel didn't give her a proper introduction whatsoever nor explained what happened to Jonah and the rest of the cast. We didn't even find out MST3K was canceled until some random crew member posted about it on Facebook. It was all handled so poorly.

I've had incredible sushi where I followed the etiquette. I've eaten at plenty of perfectly serviceable places in the Chicago suburbs where I do whatever. I've also lived in the middle of nowhere with zero access to sushi unless I wanted to drive an hour or get it from a grocery store.
