Ecstasy is dangerous!

    Turns out you shouldn't just take flashing stars. It was pretty cool at first. Everything I touched died instantly. Nothing could hurt me! None of Bowser's evil henchmen were able to damage me at all.

    Unfortunately, in my rush to use the energy I got from the ecstasy to get me as close to rescuing the princess as possible, I fell in a hole. The drug had distorted my perception of reality! I didn't even see it until it was too late.

And yeah...these holes are just bottomless pits. I'm still falling. 10 years later. I'm sure I had an extra man. I picked one up from a hidden block not far from my home, but I guess I either have to wait until I hit the bottom of this bottomless pit (if that ever happens) or accept that having an extra man means that you are merely cloned automatically when you die or fall into a pit. Kinda sucks when you think about it, but eh...that's life.
The End?
