There's a Mario Marathon in progress right now that's been going for two days and has so far raised over $60,000 for the charity Child's Play, which donates video games to hospitals for sick kids to play.

Essentially, a group of dudes is sitting around in someone's living room and playing a huge selection of levels from every Mario game in history.

How do we make this our full-time professions? We'll skim just enough to pay the electric and pizza bills and donate the rest.

Check it out here and let us know what you think in the comments or on Twitter.
