A comment at Joystiq put it succinctly: “The Wii has revealed the stupidity of the human species.” Very true. First it was the wrist straps and flying Wiimotes, and now this.
However, having had my Wii sensor bar made useless by a curious (and soon to be extinct) cat, I also use candles to power my Wiimote now. Works perfectly, and comes with the added bonus of making the room smell like Yankee Candle’s Lavender and Clean Linen.
