Back in 1982 I had the game "Raiders of the Lost Ark" for the Atari 2600. I played that game for weeks, but never reached the maximum score, or found any of the three easter eggs listed on Wikipedia. Two years later I told a "friend" about having the game, and he told me that he too had spent hours wielding the little pixel-block whip. He went on to tell me that if I had Indy jump off of a certain mesa, that I could parachute into the chamber seen in the opening of the movie, where Jones takes the statue, thus releasing a heavy ball meant to crush tomb raiders. He lavished the detail of how he'd grabbed the statue and made his way out of the room, jumping over pits with spikes in them, until eventually he made his way out of the mesa and back to safety. I spent tens of hours trying to replicate his deed without success! I confronted my friend some weeks later, and without directly making eye contact with me, kind of looking at my eyebrows while his eyes twitched rapidly, he said, "I don't know, man, I got it on my second try..." He lied.
