Blue Jays love peanuts. Sometimes if I'm late putting out peanuts a Blue Jay will sit on my deck and yell at me through the window.

The last photo shows one trying to carry two peanuts in its mouth at once. It wasn't able to carry both.

As a workaround I changed my browser keyword search to youtube.com/results?search_que - so now I'll always get actual search results rather than algorithmic bullshit

OH NO! CARMEN SANDIEGO HAS STOLEN YOUR girlfriend!

MD/GG both have SMS compatibility modes that are enabled by a pin on the cartridge connector. So you just need an appropriately sized and wired PCB that has connectors on three sides

Here's a free idea: make a retro homebrew Sega Master System game and do a physical release on a special cartridge that has an SMS connector on one end, Megadrive/Genesis connector on the opposite end, and a Game Gear connector on one of the sides
