@RobinHood I think I was born the day Colecovision came out

@InternetEh Coleco stands for Connecticut Leather Company. When I first learned this, I think I blacked out for like 10 mins

@witchfynder_finder @RobinHood conversely, a lot of the companies you think have all this history really don't. Wells Fargo just bought the name. There's no connection to the old west delivery service
