I bought the Lego version of Boba Fett's Slave One and tried to put it together as soon as I got home. When I got to the last page of instructions, I realized I was missing an important piece that was unique to the set. I was sure I hadn't lost it, so I knew Lego had shorted me the piece. I couldn't even find a suitable replacement in my three gallon bucket of Legos. I was furious. I complained to my mom, the store where I bought it, and even wrote a letter to Lego. This was 3 years ago. I was 18 years old.

When I was younger, about 6, I purposefully peed on my underwear (as in, took them off and peed on them) so I'd have to change. I had a pair Super Mario 3 underwear and I was really happy when I got to wear them.

After I captured all 150 Pokemon, my friend told me that the only way to get Mew (#151) was to visit a secret location you lose access to once you beat the game. I deleted my completed game in order to start over, at which point my friend told me he made it all up. I never spoke to him again.

I just moved most of my Dungeons and Dragons books over to my girlfriend's house. I consider this a bigger step than keeping a toothbrush in her bathroom.

I bought my brother Pokemon Yellow for his birthday one year. I borrowed it the next day and never returned it.

When I was in ninth grade I skipped out on going out for Halloween because I didn't want to miss the launch of the Natural Selection mod for Half Life.

Someone once broke into my house and stole my PS3 and my TV. It made me start going out more, and I even somehow got a girlfriend. We dated for a year before I got a new PS3. I didn't even know she dumped me until an hour later, because she wasn't there when I went to switch out the batteries on my guitar hero controller.

When I was 5 years old, I passed up a chance to see snow for the first time for the opportunity to play Mario Bros for the first time. I didn't end up seeing snow until I was 20.
