Lovelies, I have a piece of information which is going to blow your mind. Today, September 23rd, was the day that Nintendo was founded. In 1889! Yes, you heard me right! Let's let Wikipedia explain: Nintendo...

is a multinational corporation located in Kyoto, Japan. Founded on September 23, 1889 by Fusajiro Yamauchi, it produced handmade hanafuda cards. [...] Nintendo developed into a video game company, becoming one of the most influential in the industry, and Japan's third most valuable listed company, with a market value of over $85 billion. [...] The name Nintendo can be roughly translated from Japanese to English as "leave luck to heaven". As of October 18, 2010, Nintendo has sold over 565 million hardware units and 3.4 billion software units.
