When I think of the Wii, I think of bowling, golfing, or maybe boxing with friends. A shotgun doesn’t come to mind.
However, I suppose this goes back to Nintendo’s roots with Duck Hunt.
Put a cap in a duck.
I think some of these could make it as Wii games. Who wouldn’t want to plan Cii Section or Seal Hunt?

Here’s another good reason why I’m not cut out for military service. They use Xbox 360 Controllers to guide bomb sniffing robots:
It seems the U.S. army is using the Xbox 360 controller to pilot a new piece of equipment. The SUGV is essentially a robot used to check the interior of buildings for enemies and explosives.
If it used a Wii controller I may be able to lend a hand, but I have no Xbox 360 skills.
In somewhat related news, I watched the movie, “Iraq for Sale” last night, which profiles examples of corruption and incompetence on the part of some of Dick Cheney’s war profiteering contractors, including Halliburton, KBR, CACI, Titan, and Blackwater. Much of the tragic stories, including the hanging of Blackwater employees in Fallujah, have been reported. What I didn’t realize was how effective companies like this have been at getting senators like John Warner to block investigations into the incidents. It also showed that Senators Chris Dodd and Byron Dorgan are working hard to bring accountability to both the appropriations of contracts and behavior of contractors.
How do you know when you know your gaming console is a success? When chronic overuse injuries are named after it.
If it’s not tennis elbow, it may be ‘Wiiitis’ – CNN.com
“The variant in this patient can be labeled more specifically as ‘Wiiitis,'” Bonis, a family practice physician, wrote in a letter to the New England Journal of Medicine.
“The treatment consisted of ibuprofen for one week, as well as complete abstinence from playing Wii video games. The patient recovered fully.”
Wiiitis — pronounced “wee-eye-tis” — is the latest ailment to develop from the video game era, beginning with Space Invaders’ wrist in 1981, which was caused by the repeated button mashing required by the popular arcade game.
Who’s most likely to end up with Wiitis among readers of The Deets? My money’s on Jeff.
I’d just like to point out that my Mii’s life was threatened earlier today by one Mrs. Sarah Deitch. Check it out the deets here.
I realize that IU vs. ISU rivalries are serious, but does that justify threatening the life of a person’s video game character?

I think Serena was distracted by Conan’s physique.
It has come to my attention that Jeff is now adjusting to the bachelor lifestyle by purchasing accessories for his Wii. The latest round of spousal replacement accessories come in the form of Nunchuck controllers.
What Wii accessory should Jeff buy next as a to compensate for Sarah’s business traveling?
