We're big fans of recycling here at Seattle Weekly. Old issues of our newspaper, for example, are constructed via papier-mâché into small huts in which we house our interns.
But here are some folks who have found one of the most creative ways to recycle that we've seen in some time. It involves the games from the classic Super Nintendo console, some simple plumbing accessories, and a full bladder.
The idea comes to us from the fine people at Price Charting, who took a break from whatever it is they normally do (charting prices?) to construct this fully functional urinal built almost entirely out of SNES cartridges.
Why would you ever want to piss all over video-game classics like Madden Football '94 or Super Metroid? Well, besides the fact that they probably don't work anymore, urinating on video games is the best way to say "I'm not just a video-game nerd, I'm a drunk video-game nerd."
Anyhow, we'll let the Price Charting folks give you the step-by-step. But as far as ingredients, you'll need: 40 Super Nintendo games, 1 2 & 1/8-inch hole saw drill bit, 1 1 & 1/2-inch hole saw drill bit, 1 can of Clear Polyurethane Spray, 1 can of Clear Polyurethane Liquid, 1 tube Clear Waterproof Sealant, 1 3/4-inch Inlet Spud, 1 2-inch Drain Spud, 1 sheet of Hardibacker, 3 tubes of clear plumbing glue, 1 Urinal Flush Valve, 1 P Trap, some sandpaper, and 1 SNES Screwdriver Security Bit.
If you don't have enough SNES games, we reccomend purchasing more at Pink Gorilla in the International District, or at the Nintendo of America Headquarters in Redmond.
Here's a video of the results (warning, there's pee).
