Gamer surprises girlfriend with 'Super Mario Bros' proposal

"Geeks do it better!"

That's what Shane Birkinbine wrote in the caption for a video that captured his unique proposal to his girlfriend last week.

In the video, Birkinbine's girlfriend, Pam Edwards, plays the legendary "Super Mario Bros." video game with encouragement from Birkinbine.

Before long, Edwards' Mario character approaches a series of brick blocks.

"What does that say," Birkinbine asks his girlfriend.

"Where?" she answers.

"The blocks," he answers. "It spells out your name."

Delighted, Edwards asks Birkinbine how her name appears in the game.

Birkinbine, a self-proclaimed master gamer, says he built the level on Super Mario Bros Maker.

As Edwards' character continues to navigate through the level, the message is spelled out in full: "Pam, will you marry me?"

"Yes, of course," she says while laughing.

"Alright, go finish (the game) now," he says after the positive reply.

Edwards and Birkinbine met on a year and eight months ago, USA Today reported.

"Pam bought me the game for the Nintendo Wii several months ago," Birkinbine told USA Today. "Being busy with life and working, I had not had a chance to create my own level. So, it came to me to make the very first level a marriage proposal. It just seemed to fit as we both enjoy Mario games. So, over the course of a week, I would work on it after I got home in the evenings when she was fast asleep."

If any other Mario-loving gamer wants to borrow Birkinbine's proposal idea or if anyone simply wants to play through the proposal level, the level code is 7A61-0000-0245-8DE8, Geekologie reported.

Police officer gives child his own Pokemon collection after collection was stolen

A Cleveland police officer has become a hero to a 9-year-old Ohio boy whose Pokemon collection was stolen.

Bryce Angelone had been collecting the cards for about three years and he said they meant a lot to him since he began trading with friends.

He had been walking to a friend's home last week when another child took his binder of cards out of his hands and ran away, WJW reported.

Bryce's mother called police to report it, who ended up finding the binder.

But the sad news was that some of Bryce's treasured cards were missing.

James Grotenrath, one of the officers who responded, went above the call of duty.

He went to his home and found his own Pokemon collection to give to Bryce.

Some of the cards in Bryce's collection are rare.

"It's a banned card of Pokemon and there's only about 10 of these in the world and I have one of them," Bryce told WJW.

"It's a priceless item, but it's better to see someone else smile, and in my book, like my partner says, it's just happy to see a citizen smile instead of always frowning upon us and looking the other way," Grotenrath said.

Police told WJW that the child who took the cards is a few years older than Bryce. He got a "good talking to," but they didn't file charges against him, WJW reported.
