    I don't know how to embed Vimeo links, so you'll hafta watch it at the link.

    I think it's a national, no, international tragedy that kids like this will not grow up with Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and other arcade machines. If I owned a mall, I think I'd put an arcade in there just for fun, hooliganism be damned. :mad:

    the video arcade is a dying thing, thanks to the x-box kids these days are playing pacman, galaga, TMNT arcade, Simpsons arcade ect in their own homes.

    Yeah, I saw that. Its a very nice example of how people can be kind and humane to one another.

    Kid put a great deal of effort into making a cardboard arcade, he only had one customer, and that guy said that was a shame and flashmobbed it so hundreds of people showed up. Very cool.
