      Must be cause I'm old but from the start I knew the guy making this video is the guy that bought the bid so the surprise just wasn't that great for me other than it's amazing that there's just some things you can only get from living long enough living long enough Moral of the story you kids are smart real smart but you all should really learn to respect your elders more than you do

    Awesome story dude. To be honest I don’t buy stuff in Japan, because of timing of package and the cost of the stuff is more than US Dollars. Also I don’t want to buy extra costs for traveling to America

Also i really think because Coddy reach out to internal McD's, someone from McD japan know the value of their stash, and put it on ebay for you. Coddy is the reason u hv the copy.

    Former Japan McDonalds worker here. The icons (or badges) you seem to get at the end of each training, are the same pictures from stickers which trainee were given and stick on the nameplate as an certifiate. McD (especially in Japan) was so proud of sophisticated training and the cartridhge shows the vives they were running on at that time.

    You are one of the rare people (like Jon Bois) that can make anything interesting. Many people get big on YouTube for making content about things that people love. But every so often there is a channel that is popular for the quality of the content, independent of the subject matter. Unless there are some how close to a million die hard super monkey ball fans out there.

    Hey Nick, I remember years ago that in the gamefaqs forum, people who played Super Mario RPG for the SNES rented from blockbuster claimed to had access to an area that retail versions didn't. After many years, I've wondered whether this theory may be true or whether it's people who somehow collectively misremembered their experience playing the game. Might be worth taking a look into. Thanks!
