Flying Wiimote Breaks 60" TV

A member of the Something Awful Forums lost his 60" TV this weekend to a flying Wiimote.

"We brought the Wii home and played it pretty much nonstop for the past 24 hours. At 12:10am, during a slower couch-sitting game of Wii Sports: Bowling, my Nintendo Wii got angry with me. My buddy Troy reels back to roll his ball as he's done about 300 times tonight and suddenly feels the controller slip from his hand. (THANK GOD for the wrist strap right?) Nope. Wrist strap snaps. The Wiimote flies across the room impaling my 60" rear projection TV square in the upper left corner. Be warned: Sweaty hands + faulty Wiimote wrist strap = broken ass TV."

I can guarantee it won't be the LAST time this happens, too. :D

for some reason a simple quote from the movie Friday comes to mind. it is when ice cube and chris tucker at the same time say, "Daaaamn."

i guess you should move your tv away from any windows too...3 reasons...broken window, a lost flying controller, or both.

...until some redneck American (and I can say that without prejudice, because I'm from Kentucky :p ) tries to sue Nintendo.
Either from a broken T.V., or a broken NOSE...maybe even an eye put out...from the "flying Wiimote" phenomenon. Mark my words, it WILL HAPPEN. :o

...and not once did someone lose hold of the remote, so I can't attest to the strength of the straps... but we do make sure to have them on!
