Donkey Kong 11,682


You Stupid Ape! Control Jump Man (Yes, that’s what Mario was called before being called “Mario”) to save the Princess from a giant ape! Donkey Kong has to be one of the best examples of things being lost in translation. Called “Stupid Ape” in Japan, the games creators needed to translate the name to an English friendly name when it was launched in America in the early 80s. “Ape” translated as “Kong”, where as “Stupid” was incorrectly translated as “Donkey”. “Donkey Kong” has stuck ever since.

    If you are however on the fence: seize your most loved earphones, thoughts down in direction of a Ideal Order and request in direction of plug them into a Zune then an iPod and view which a single seems better towards by yourself, and which interface produces oneself smile more. Then you are going to know which is immediately for by yourself.

  18. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  19. band t shirt says:

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  20. This is an article that makes you think “never thought of that!”

  21. I love this! I've also burned or shredded journals that perhaps served a purpose at the time but no longer held value in the words and weren't the legacy I wanted to leave behind for anyone to read. This is the ultimate simplification: get rid of what no longer applies or is of any value. Clean out the old nature so the newness of Christ can blossom as life emerges from the ashes just like it does after every forest fire.I love the ashes analogy. Beauty from ashes…

  22. Francine, sometimes when I write I don’t know if other moms will relate to my words. I am very open and it helps to put my thoughts on “paper”. It does help to know that other women can relate! Thanks for your comments.
