I was gonna put this in the general section, but I figured it belonged here instead.

http://www.mario.tv/

Kinda cool thing going on, where different game companies get thier mascots to wear mario attire and what not, then put them on t-shirts.

Feel free to discuss everyone's favorite plummer.

What a coincidence! I was born on the same day that Mario came into existence?

well, 2 days before. Technically, it's the 16th, so this is albiet early, I think.

Funny story, today I wore my "how to score a princess" mario shirt, without knowing I'd soon visit that site later on!

It's fate, I tell ya.

actully...  Mario popped up in 1981, when Donkey Kong came to the arcade...  this is just the anniversary of Super Mario Bros., not Mario himself.  So, he's 24...  not 20.

Well, back then he was Jumpman. So technically, he wasn't Mario yet :P

Rather it's his 20th or 24th brithday, it's still his birthday. Happy birthday mario (on the 16th)
 
All in all, someday, this week 20 or 24 years ago, a revelotion to gaming hapened that made us all happy and Nintendo lots and lots of money.

I'm going to agree with Janus on this one. He's the same character. All he did was have his name changed, that's all. That also means mario and donkey kong are the same age.

LMAO!!  Good point, PG ^_^

But even still, twenty years is pretty amazing, considering Mario is perhaps the most influential and well-known video game character ever.
