Three Stupid Ways to Spend all of your money, STAT

#1: Nintendo Love Tester

Never heard of this before, but apparently, in 1969 (Summer of Love, yup yup) the same man who went on to invent the Gameboy debuted this handy little number.  No, I’m not joking.  Nintendo’s history of goofy peripherals goes all the way back to the 60s.

Current Price to Test Your Love: $1999.00 (plus $15 shipping), ebay

Affordable alternative: Nintendo Vitality Sensor (price & availability: TBA)

Coming Soon!

#2 Unopened Box of Nintendo Cereal System

Oh yeah, you remember this one–Nintendo Cereal System was one of the “best” cereals of all time, complete with a box that split down the middle ala Nerds candy.  I can still remember the “yummy” flavors and the way I “delighted” in every bite of my “favorite” fanboy breakfast.

I bet it tastes just as good as it did way back then!

Buy the Nintendo Cereal System, and you too will agree, it’s tough to decide which of the two flavors is the better!

Current Price to dine with Mario and Link: $300, ebay (free shipping, what a bargin!)

Affordable Alternative: Empty, banged-up box from the less-famous Pac-Man Cereal (Current price: $55 ebay)

Hey, it’s a lot cheaper once the cereal has been eaten!

#3 Unopened copy of Stadium Events for NES

You know you want it, and you know you can’t STAND that your NES collection remains incomplete.  Go ahead and pick up a copy of this Holy Grail collector’s piece.  Hell, you already bought all those unappreciative jerks in your family a nice holiday gift–time to treat yourself right!

Current Price to play the BEST game of all time (based on cost): $22,201, ebay (free shipping!)

Affordable Alternative: Buying the entire catalog of NES games other than Stadium Events, plus a cute little shed for handy storage

Hey, with a shed this nice, you’ll be able to fit in a few Genesis games too!
