I am an old man. Previous to having an NES, I played the arcade version of Punch-Out in the wilds of Brooklyn, NY as a precocious 5 year-old. Head barely cresting over the joystick console, I consistently whipped Glass Joe and Piston Hurricane before often succumbing to Bald Bull and his Turkish Bull Charge. Little did I know, nearly 30 years later, dedicated researchers would finally crack the code to determine which exact moment to stymie his bull-charge with a body blow (or –an ‘ani bow’ as I called it as a 5 year-old).
Who says persistence isn’t worth it. Credit here goes to Midwesternhousewives, easily the most obscure YouTuber we’ve ever covered, with a grand total of two subscribers. But wisdom often comes from where you least expect it. My 5-year-old self owes you a debt of gratitude, sir.
