  1. Early in graduate school I spent way too much and too many quarters at “Captain Video,” a videogame emporium that was of course right on my way home. (We lived in graduate student housing and I walked from the grounds to our apartment, right by this House of Sin.) I had a grad student buddy in the German department who was similarly addicted. Stargate was a favorite. The rest have slipped beneath the waters of Lethe. 🙂
