I was one of the lucky first kids in my area to have a Nintendo. We had a hoping house that summer as all the neighbour kids were suddenly my friends and would come by just to see what I was doing. I was in my 9 year old glory.

One disturbing trend, was for the cartridges to stop working. As we all ‘knew’ blowing on it was a sure fire fix for the issue, or was it.

Well my adult self came across this article on the efficacy of blowing on Nintendo cartridges. What’s the verdict you say? Read the article to find out. It’s actually really complete and brings back some memories.
