Honeslty how hard do you swing a remote Wii controller to pierce a hole on
a TV's plastic casing? specially if playing bowling? baseball ok but bowling?

I personally think the 1st pic is exxagerated? or cheap wa11mart TV...

You couldn't throw a remote hard enough to pierce through plastic on the side of a TV. Maybe a small dent or a small crack, but no kind of hole what so ever. There's been exaggerated cases of mishaps from all three major companies, so don't believe everything you see.

The japanese instructions on how to use the Wii are pretty funny, they have things like don't pour half of a two liter of orange soda on your Wii (I don't think that's exactly what it said, but it's in Japanese and it has pictures).

Also i don't want to sound like a jerk or anything, but it's Houston not Huston.

I'm glad people aren't blaming Nintendo for all these problems. It's not really their fault, but I do hope they come out with a stronger wrist strap by the time I have the money to buy one.

I've decided to call that girl in the video the Crazy Wii Boxing Girl. I'm fairly certain she's the next Inter-web phenomenon. I want to see someone edit the video, and make her look like a real boxer. That'd be hilarious.

Hah! I had a Japanese AA battery once that carried the warning label "Do not recharge. Do not throw at the creature. Not a significant source of vitamin C." ahhhh... good times.

If anything that first video has taught me that smoking crack before playing your Wii is only a good idea if your being videotaped.

That last one was great!

"Sorry Timmy, you can't play the Wii in here. This is a room full of ninjas.



Not a significant source of Vitamin C?!? Darn, I guess now we have to start drinking orange juice again.

I know that Japanese people aren't as stupid as these instructions make it seem, why do need to be told not to eat batteries, or play the Wii in a room full of black ninjas?

Just to clarify for all you Wii owners out there: A room full of white ninjas is perfectly acceptable for playing the wii.

I interpret the last one to mean,

"Just because you kick butt on Wii does not mean you can take on a bunch of ninjas."

Oh man, those pictures are great. Just too funny.

I guess that why I'm against Wii. When I'm gaming I want to be on the couch in laying in a horizontal postion. I don't need to be making sudden movements. Could end up spilling my beer.:w:

Hahaha, those instruction manuel pics are priceless.

I honestly never knew that I couldn't play one in a room full of ninjas, guess that makes me Wiitarded.

I have a Wii, and it really doesnt take that much movement to successfully control the player. If you are breaking someone's nose or TV screen because you are swinging your arms around like a maniac, you are indeed a maniac.
