    Default A lucky person sells a nes and 5 games for 13,105 us dollars on Ebay!!

Well, you know what they say, one (wo)man's trash is another man's treasure - someone out there was willing to pay US$ 13,105 for them.
    She must've gone for a few hours scratching her head wondering what brought the bids up that high. Filthy-rich retro gamers? Nope. Apparently, one of the five games is one of the rarest games ever.

    This game is Stadium Events (Wikipedia link), an old exercise game released by Bandai in North America back in 1987. It comes with the Family Fun Fitness mat which you use for its Olympic-event mini-games. Only 2,000 copies of this game are believed to have been produced, and when Nintendo bought the rights to the Family Fun Fitness mat technology in 1988 (and later re-released it as the Power Pad), most of the copies were recalled and likely destroyed.

    Only an estimated 200 copies managed to get off the shelves and into consumer hands. Followers of the rare game trade believe that there are only 10 copies of Stadium Events left in existence, only one of which is still factory sealed.

    With her selling price of US$ 9.99 for the set, the North Carolina mom clearly had no idea what a treasure she happened to have. Her copy, still with its box and looking pretty intact, was enough to land her a hell lot more than she bargained for.

    Actually, the Britannian government is the opposite of communism/socialism, which is based on absolute equality, and a total dissolution of any sort of class system. Britannia is based on a monarchy with a powerful aristocratic upper class based on lineage, very similar to medieval feudalism, and social darwinism.
    In truth, the world Zero/Lelouch envisions is far more similar to communism/socialism.
