OK, let's say you make a car that has some sort of device that limits the amount of air that goes into the engine. Let's call this, for lack of a better term, an 'air restrictor'. Then the evil gasoline manufacturers sue the air restrictor maker for limiting the amount of gas that is consumed. The aristocrats.

Wait, how is this different than spending a week in the city? I mean, other than the fact that you get to tell people you went to BURNING MAN, of course. I survived in the desert- by paying a lot of money!

There are still a lot of good campsites in the US. Most of them don't have porta-potties.

That idea has already been done a few times, but it's never caught on. The GBA could be connected to the Gamecube with a cable. The best game to use the link was probably Pac-Man vs. One player was Pac-Man, who used the GBA screen and could see the entire maze. The other players were the ghosts. They had their individual split screens on the TV. The ghosts had a very limited view so that pac-man wasn't completely screwed with 3 human controlled ghosts.

Of course, the difference is that with the Wii U the screen is included, while with the GBA-GCN setup you had to buy extra equipment. It wasn't used that often. Penny Arcade had a comic on the people who complained about having to buy all the extra hardware.

I believe the Wii could also connect wirelessly to the DS, but that was never used for anything major to my knowledge.

The dreamcast also had the VMU on their controllers, but it's just not the same when the screen is only 48x32 pixels.

Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
