Herr Docktor Heinrich Wisenheimer: The Very First Website:  "hosted on a NeXT computer at Steve Jobs' startup company"

Um, no.

/stopped reading there.


Would have been more accurate to say that the backup copy was stored on a NeXT computer. But then again, when has a news article ever been "accurate".

Everything in that picture of the front entrance to Bally's was torn down a few weeks ago. Apparently they're replacing it all with yet another pile of crappy retail shops.

buckler: cmunic8r99: CowardlyLion: margarito bandito: Tab is a great mixer with rye whisky. Bourbon gets the Coke Zero treatment.

What did bourbon ever do to deserve such abuse?

Dear Lord, this.

You're absolutely right. Mountain Dew is far superior.


Blech, gimme the Crab Juice...

maram500: My elementary school (Catholic...) sent out letters at the start of every year explicitly asking parents "If your little crotchspawn misbehaves, do we have your permission to use corporal punishment?" I know it kept going through the 2000-01 school year.

Years later, my mother told me she always declined because, as she put it, "If you fark up that badly, I'm beating your ass myself." Thanks mom!


My parents were schoolteachers, and even though corporal punishment was banned in the early 60's there was a standing rumor that any teacher who served during WWII or Korea was still allowed to give kids a fresh one whenever they felt like it.

All I know is that my dad had the best-behaved and hardest-working fifth-grade classroom I have ever seen anywhere.

bingethinker: Real telegrams died a long time ago. I was at a wedding in 1984 and somebody who couldn't be there sent a telegram congratulating the happy couple. No paper was delivered. Somebody from the telegram office phoned up and read it to them.

/sad trombone


Same thing happened to me when I got married in 1994. I was thinking, "Wait, this is a telegram?"

BenJammin: Remember telex?


Remember Telex?  Still use Telex.  It's still the preferred method of official communication in many industries, including international trading and travel.  And good luck getting out of a jam in the developing world without a Telex and/or a fax machine.  Far more useful than even a satellite phone.

I use to luv collecting those long strings of holed paper and ... not sure what I did with them, but they were cool.

You know Mountain Dew was invented to be a mixer for whiskey, right?
