    They were amazingly popular but maybe not here in the UK

    It's a rather addictive little handheld game ..

    I have the Donkey Kong version of that, also still works. I think that was more popular than the Mario Bros one in the UK though?

    A new drug developed by Australian scientists at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience, and its partners at Melbourne University has dramatically improved clinical and cognitive symptoms of motor neurone disease, also called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. It is the result of a painstaking 15 year clinical trial using the experimental drug CuATSM.

    Motor Neurone Disease is a progressive, fatal neurodegenerative disease. Its key hallmark is the death of the brain cells that control muscle movements. This results in muscle weakness and eventually paralysis.
    Patients usually die of respiratory failure within three years of diagnosis, and there are no treatments or disease-modifying therapies available. Until now. This could be a game changer. Watch this space.

    I reckon you have that spot on tex. Hawking defied all the odds after being given just two years to live after his diagnosis. He survived for an incredible further 55 years.
