Last year, 1999 in the beginning of July right after the 4th, i was playing
my N64 Quest 64 (its a OK beginner game not enough challenge for me). I
really wanted to beat it and I had nothing else to do because there was
this terrible storm outside, so what happens is a bolt of lighting hits my
power lines! You wont believe it but this bolt was so incredibly strong
it totally fried half of my left arm and 2 of my right hand's fingers, it
took me a minute or two (literally) to take in the trama of my arms. I was
mad about losing my game till i saw the burned remains of my arms.
Well goodbye N64, it was burned and i have no usable arms. My parents
rushed me to the hospital 3 weeks later when I was realized they
hand removed most of my right arm and my middle and ring finger on my
right hand plus the rest of my right hand needed to recover a bit. I was
torn mentally, my N64 was dead and I couldn't use my other two systems
(NES Super NES). When I read a old Nintendo Power (with my nose!) I read
about this kid who played with his toes, that I tried, I could play the
Super NES and NES but I had to walk my bro through our new N64 in
order for me to play.

I was playing with my Zelda ocarina of time one day with a lighting
storm outside. My mom told my not to play video games on rainy days
because it was really dangerous to play games on rainy days. I was like
yeah yeah yeah I didn't really care. I was playing Zelda until a lighting
bolt hit our house's annteni and their was a loud explode sound. I didn't
really care because I was too hooked on the game. I was playing until the
N64 controller started to rumble. It rumbled like the rumble pak but my
rumble pak was not in the controller! Weird I thought. I thought that I
miss the rumble so much that I can feel the rumble right now. So I got
some batts for my rumble pak but guess what? The batteries won't come
out of my hands! I tried throwing it but it didn't work. I tried washing it off
but It was a mistake! I was shocked like heck until the batteries ran out
of power. My hair was all stiff and smoke was coming out of my ears. So
from that day on I never played video games when it is raining ever again!
well, until one day...

Christmas one year I got an Nintendo 64 and 2 games. I played them for about
a month then I got grounded, for 1 month. My dad unhooked the system and
hid it in his closet. After a month I asked my dad for it back but he got
mad and grounded me for another month. After about 1 month and a half
he finally remembered he had it and gave it back to me. It was about
mid-April when I got it back. I brushed all of the dust off and hooked it
back up. I had saved up money to buy a game so I did. I had three games
and my birthday rolled around in June. My parents and grandparents gave me
a total of 5 games. I was real excited. Then..........not 3 nights later. We had
a real bad storm and I was playing the games and guess what happened......
the system was hit by lightning. Fried it like chicken. I tried to get a
refund but they said that the warranty was up so I couldn't.
AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! I sat around for the rest of the year trying to save
up enough money. I finally did and bought one...again. I got 2 games
for Christmas that year. I promised myself not to ever get grounded
again or play while it was raining.

I was playing my new Super NES game, Final Fantasy 3, during a
lightning storm and my house or something was hit by a bolt and as
the electricity did its thing I was shocked and my Super NES was cooked.
