Blowing on your Nintendo cartridges made them work.
Every kid from the 80’s and 90’s knew that if your game wasn’t working, you just needed to pull it out, blow on it, and shove it back in. Then it’d work, right? The thinking was, that we were blowing out all the dirt and dust so that everything could connect properly. Sorry to say, fellow gamers, this didn’t work.
In most cases, when a game didn’t load or kept glitching, it’s because the pins weren’t connected properly. When you pulled the cartridge out, to reinsert it, you were just giving the pins a chance to properly line up.
Truthfully, your wet and cheeto-scented breath was actually harmful to the game, blowing more crap into the cartridge and causing corrosion.
