    "Some researchers have theorized that the amount of space Jenkins' brain allocates for Nintendo-based memories has resulted in damage to or the complete loss of his non-Nintendo-based memories."

    It's funny 'cause it's true. The essense of Nintendo fanboy-ism in print! I, too, have trouble remembering phone numbers and Sega games I know it's the Onion and all but it really hits the nail spot on. I know I'm not the only one seeing myself in the article

    Great find!

    Thanks for the link, I really enjoyed reading it.

    In addition, his entire dorsolateral prefrontal cortex is devoted to remembering the time he did a helicopter dunk from half-court with Shawn Kemp at the buzzer to beat the Charlotte Hornets 82-81 in NBA Jam: Tournament Edition.
    Once I had finished this line, I had burst out laughing, and I chuckled for the rest of the article.

    Me too. I covered my face so no one else would see. After a while a co-worker of mine asked if I was crying. What made it so funny was that I could visualize the entire scenario.

    The findings also revealed that about 60 percent of Jenkins' repressed memories may involve Nintendo. In a Rorschach inkblot test administered to him, Jenkins compared a series of amorphous shapes to a bird eating its young, his mother brandishing a broadsword, and the entire cast of characters from Castlevania II: Simon's Quest.
    I had a laugh at that last line

    Wait... there was a Castlevania II? I thought they went straight to #III after the first.

    "In fact, the only school-related memory he is able to review as vividly as the underwater-bomb-defusing level of Nintendo Entertainment System's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is his first day of college, which was spent playing multiplayer GoldenEye 007 with his roommates.".
    Oh my god... one of my favorite memories from college.
