Default Nintendo Wii skiing...

I cain't do it y'all. My brother brought it while visiting, and I tried over a dozen times to ski down the hill with the foot pad thingy to no avail. I'd start off fine, but after a couple of turns, I'd start losing my balance. I couldn't even stand on the damn thing for more than about 15 seconds at the most.

I have great hand-eye coordination, and I'm great at all sorts of games, especially FPS games. But when it comes to eye-foot coordination...y'all should see it. I wish I had had a video of it. Everyone in the room was laughing until they were crying. The last time I tried, I ended up falling flat on my back. That's right, I didn't just stagger off the pad, I fell off the damn thing into the floor. I don't think I'll be playing "wavy-wavy, fall on your ass" Nintendo Wii anymore.

Gentlemen, the reason I posted this story is because I WASN'T DRUNK! Why would I bother posting something like that? Falling down because I've been drinking doesn't happen, I can't get drunk enough to do that anymore. It's the tolerance or something else, I just don't stagger anymore, even after a whole bottle of whiskey.

No, the reason I posted is that the pad and the on-screen video just do something to my brain. It's like bloody vertigo, only I don't get dizzy at all. I don't know how to explain it other than to say...

FAIL!

Ok, then maybe you should START drinking, then try it...

Some people do things better while drunk because they are able to let loose.

JUST DO IT.

It's about 50/50 when I play it. I'm on the tips of my toes leaning forward and sometimes stagger forward, but have never fallen down.
