MAME WR No. 1 – ’88 Games

So I should really put my money where my mouth is and crack on with the MAME World Record attempts I mentioned in my earlier post

First up is ’88 Games by KonamiIt’s Konami’s third game in their button smashing series following Track and Field and Hyper Sports before it.  A quick check of Twin Galaxies show that they have a record for each of the individual events.  Now this might prove to be a problem as you can only move onto the next event once you’ve qualified for the preceding event.   The events are as follows with the Twin Galaxies record against each;

  • 100m Dash : 09.470 secs
  • Long Jump : 10.31 meters
  • 400m Relay (Qualifying Heat): 33.060 secs

  • Archery : 5,150
  • Javelin : 108.48 meters
  • High Jump : 2.32 meters
  • 400m Relay – The Final Race : 33.060 secs

If you liked that download Wale’s free mixtape, The Mixtape About Nothing, from last year. You won’t be sorry for long…

American fined for smoking bong containing cat

According to a recent Guardian article a US man has been fined for smoking a bong containing a cat.  Yeah you read that correctly.  It’s not April 1st either.  Apparently he did it to calm the cat down and according to the man “Lots of people do this, I’m just the first to get caught'”.  The cat was taken in two months ago from friends who had abused it.  Oh the irony.

The cat has yet to comment.  At the time of going to press it was out at KFC in preparation for a Star Wars and Lord of the Rings back to back marathon…
