I did, however, buy a wii yesterday. I wanted to have something for my mother to do while she was at my apt, and for me to do instead of not watching the good shows that don't come on the TV channels that I get. I got that little 'fit' pad as well, which has all manner of working out things on it, but if that does anything for me I'll be surprised. It will be useful whenever I get the snowboarding game later on, though. Mariocart or whatever it is looks like it'll be fun. I think you can connect these things over the internet to other people so if anyone on here wants to do that, let me know (and also let me know how).
PS: Check out these awesome science fair projects. Truly the US is breeding the curers of disease. Although to be fair, I don't remember ever winning any science fairs in middle school either. I came in second a couple of times and won the social studies fair once maybe.
