"My Mom helping me through a hard level in Super Mario Land on the day Nintendo Gameboy was released,” uploaded by ZosaCloud (the boy in the blue shirt).
I witnessed a similar scene with my wife recently, as she helped a young nephew run through a desert stage of New Super Mario Bros. on his DS Lite that I swear he’s been stuck on for months. Why don’t kids ever know that you need to hold down the run button the entire time?

Well, you know what Captain America would never do? Go online anonymously and shit on a girl for having an opinion.”
