You want science? Blowing eliminated the dust particles from blocking the copper game receptor chip things that made the game work. IT’S SCIENCE. Contra can’t Contra if there’s dust in the cartridge.

Don’t get me wrong — I didn’t read this article. WAY too many words and from what I can tell they used a lot of convincing supporting information which I don’t particularly like since it usually only works against my argument.
