Happy Birithday, Jon!

Jon's birthday was on the 13th- however, due to all the projects that he had that week- we had a party for him last night. It was a blast! Some of our friends brought over their projector and we had our Wii going on the wall. They also brought over some more remotes so we could have 4 people playing at a time. There was good food and good company! Thanks for all who came- it was amazing! Because I was being a slacker- I didn't take very many pictures (oops) but I did get this video of some of the guys who were playing. It was pretty hilarious to see 4 guys trying their hardest to move their arms/hands as fast as they could. Enjoy! Hehe, I bet you fellas will be feeling that today :-)

Just to clarify to everyone, we were playing a series of short games that use the wii's motion detection.

The one we were playing was parodying Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark and we were running from the rolling boulder. The faster you move your arms in running motion the faster your character ran.

What we didn't realize, and why I thought it was over and stopped halfway through (aside from being a wimp apparently - tired arms!) was because unlike other games, this one did not have a time limit, it was merely until three of the players went too slowly and got run over.

Basically, being guys, we were all too prideful to concede defeat and would rather collapse in arm agony as soon as the level is over than avoid the pain and take the loss
