How many animals did Moses take on the ark?

I was going to the bathroom today and discovered I have a vagina! I just never thought to look behind my balls.

:shock:

Okay then...

Anyways, Vectrex's are beasts, how disorganized do you have to be to NOT know you have one?

I had to put my stuff in storage 4 years ago because I moved for a job. Since then I've moved 3 times and this is my fourth. I have boxes that probably haven't been open in years.

I second this. It sounds far too good to be true.

I don't know, but this story actually sounds LESS likely to be true than the sealed Stadium Events story.

Because, it's perfectly plausible that someone could by a single game that isn't rare at the time, forget about it, and find it years later. It's a whole different story that someone just happened to decide to buy a bunch of couplets of Sega Systems, 3 boxed Atari's, and a Vectrex, and forget about it. I mean, buying them in the first place is unlikely, but forgetting about them makes it VERY unlikely.

This is why you need to use a spreadsheet to keep track of things.

I detect hopeful sarcasm... :roll: Then again if not, seriously, pics or it didn't happen~ :P

That tells you what you have, but not where it is. Knowing you have something, but being unable to find it can be worse than not knowing about it at all.

I knew I had a bunch of stuff, so finding sega systems and atari's wasn't a surprise given how many I've picked up over the years. The Vectrex on the other hand...

I'll try and get some pictures up after I get home from work.
