That's odd.... I'd always assumed Pac-Man had been around forever.


I'll hide now.

you know if it was true that video games influenced kids, then the generation that played pacman would be running around in dark rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive music by now.

Or perhaps they would have roundish faces, yellowish skin, and a reputation for eating quickly... hmm.

I share the same birthday with Pac-Man? COOL.

My birthday was yesterday, June 16. Woke up in Honolulu and went to bed in Las Vegas. Cool birthday.. best one in a long time.

Anyhow, here's to you Pac-Man, my birthday mate.

CHEERS.

Do people actually go to bed in Las Vegas? The first time I went, I was there 36 hours and didn't sleep at all until the car ride back to LA.

Did you see any Pac-Man slot machines(so it's not completely off-topic)?
