I specifically remember playing Super Mario Bros. 3 on the floor of the living room... we had such nice carpet in there then , and I'd skip meals and going to the bathroom just to play that game.
I remember coming home to play Nintendo, turning on the television, and then going to defecate while I waited for it to come on.
I remember my mother's mother in particular. She had the coolest sand in her driveway, and you could build anything out of it. For the longest time, she also didn't have indoor plumbing, which meant outhouse galore :p
I have a word for you to look up..... coprology.... ;)
I accidentally came across this thread while I was trying to see how often I'd used the word "shorn" (because the spell-check on firefox doesn't think it's a word).
Anyway, this stuff is interesting apart from the last few posts where someone tried to troll the thread, and my own post where I was obviously lying. Many of the posters aren't current any more, so would any of our present members like to contribute?
