This is what happened.

When Friends and Big Bang cast members decide to unite for higher paychecks, the executives cave. A few years ago, some of the minor stars on CSI tried to do the same and were canned immediately.

I think they were trying to set a precedent for 2nd/3rd tiet actors/participants in a show that such actions will result in a 100% paycut. I can't totally blame them either.

Do a web search for Gameboy in Iraq. You'll turn up a fully-functioning gameboy that survived mortars(bombs?) hitting a base. The thing is mostly black and has some of the plastic melting, but it still plays tetris and is on display in a museum.

I live in New York City and I can vouch for this. It's in the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center. It's not technically a "museum," but it's in a display case on the 2nd floor with some special/vintage Nintendo products. It is half-melted as ausekills says. They have it auto-playing the original Tetris.

+ - Bubblegum Crisis Kickstarter lets backers be producers on Blu-Ray set->

Submitted by Reverend Raven
Reverend Raven (135361) writes "The classic cyberpunk anime series Bubblegum Crisis (think Blade Runner + The Terminator + Streets of Fire) has a Kickstarter for a Blu-Ray edition and the backers are getting to help decide how the budget's allocated. It's being called CrowdProduction and it looks to be more than lip service, there's genuine discussion about production costs, logistics, technical details, etc. It looks to be a fantastic set for an awesome series (Disclaimer: I am a backer)."

Homer: Even pork chops?
Herb: Absolutely. We have a tennis court, a swimming pool, a screening room--
Homer: You mean, if I want pork chops, even in the middle of the night, your guy will fry 'em up?
Herb: Sure. That's what he's paid for. Now, if you need towels, laundry--
Homer: Wait!
Herb: Maids--
Homer: Wait, wait, wait, wait! Let me see if I've got this straight. It's Christmas day, 4:00 a.m., there's a rumble in my stomach--
Marge: Homer, please!
Herb: Your old man sure loves pork chops!
Bart: He sure does, Uncle Herb.
