Lesson 6: Those Ghosts Have Been Blinking for an Awfully Long Time
Let’s review the basics, shall we? (We shall.) After munching one of the four power pellets your enemies become blue, vulnerable and very tasty for a brief period of time. That's when the magic happens. No, seriously. In addition to obtaining a hearty 3,000 points for eating all four ghosts, you gain invaluable confidence and trash-talking opportunities, enabling you to say things like “That's what I'm talking about” or “Did you see that shit?”
However you must consider the danger. Glory can become tragedy in a matter of milliseconds. If you get greedy and lose a life then you can be dismissed as nothing more than a reckless fool. So how do you decide whether or not to go for it? How can you ever be certain that you're making the right decisions in life? How many nipples can you balance on a unicorn? If we knew the answers to these questions then... we wouldn't have to ask them. We can only do our best to seek that perfect balance between safety and an exciting or remarkable experience.
