    For the headphone holder, I found that I had a giant C-Clamp laying around that works perfectly clamped to the side of my desk. I'm not a fan of the banana holders which are easy to get broken, or knocked over.

    I used to do the unplugged controller trick with my kids, eventually they asking why the light is not on their controllers. Also, I would think the static buildup in a trash bag would be bad for electronics.

    I don't need no banana rack! My Benq XL2420TX monitor has a headset hook on the back!

    I used that unplugged controller trick on a friend's kid while playing The Last of Us recently. I told the kid she was playing as Ellie. At the end of the session, she looked at me and said, "Swear to me that everything you told me about controlling Ellie is true." I looked at her and said, "I swear."

    My mom did it to me when I was young. It... It worked.

    ...You let a little kid watch and play TLOUS? *tsk tsk tsk*

    When I'm playing online in Halo (or any online game), during the matchmaking screens I do push-ups, crunches, pull-ups, or bicep curls. You can do quite a bit of reps if you are waiting; and minimum I'm waiting 1-2 min for each match to load. If you play every day or every other day, you will get a lot stronger and more defined if you do this while you wait. Plus you will feel a lot more energized and focused while you'll play.

    Are you like, trying to become a Spartan while playing as a Spartan?

    Haha yes I am!

    That tubing on the cables technique is a novel idea. Now I get almost a whole hour before my cables are destroyed.

    the garbage bag is also good to keep people from steeling your expensive electronics

    Uh... So in the ideal world I have infinite time but yet my siblings man the controller in precious few hours I have to play.... Oxymoronic writing, isn't it?

    Does the 3DS not come with a charging base anymore? Because it's the most convenient thing ever. I just drop my 3DS on the base when I get home and it charges.
  • GOD - July 17, 2013 5:23 p.m.

    Well mine didn't.... not that I mind plugging it in though, and since I let it charge in the carrying case I have for it, it never gets dusty.

    Can you make an item so glossy that even you can't get rid of all the smudges?
  • GOD - July 17, 2013 7:05 p.m.

    What really bugs me is how smudged the screen gets. Mine is super shiny red so the body doesn't really show smudges :) Still kinda wish I'd held off for an XL though, because one it's matte finish, and two I have massive tall person hands.
