maybe I cheated a little with this subject ;)

it's the emails you get when some spammer uses your domain as a from address... still, the volume of it qualifies as spam

had a few other ideas for the cartoon too, but this was the first one that came to mind

It's a successful delivery, just probably not where the guy would want it. :P

Seriously, am I really that much older than you people?
Saltine, back me up here.
Paper Boy was an arcade machine. It had handlebars to stear with.

And it was my mortal nemesis as a child.

Well I had it for the NES, and some people probably just never went to the arcade when it was there.

Yes, Paperboy is an arcade machine. I knew it was also on the NES, but I didn't know about the PC.

It was on everything. I've played it on a commodore 64 my school had back in the 3rd grade.

Hey, I used to play that game too, down in the student arcade room at uni. I seriously sucked at it. I was much better at the pinball games. My best game however was Marble Madness. I used to beat it all the time.

Yeah, I just dated myself. So what?

Nowadays though I sometimes seriously feel like I'm playing a live game of paperboy when I ride my bicycle through downtown Osaka. There'll be taxis coming out of blind alleys, little old obasans crossing the street, homeless guys pushing carts full of cardboard and aluminum cans, herds of schoolboys riding three to a bike, and all manner of potholes, street signs, telephone poles, and sudden guard-railings to watch out for. And it's usually on streets so narrow that one car can barely make it.

It's seriously stressful.

I had a love/hate relationship with that game. It was fun and I liked the background music, but it was terribly frustrating with the time limit.

Oh, me too. You should've seen some of the tantrums I'd throw whenever I just missed completing a level by half a second (I wasn't particularly emotionally stable at the time). Still, it was my favorite game at the time, and I couldn't stop until I showed it just who was the master in that relationship.

Hey, at least I'm a good conversationalist. I have a lot in common with myself.
