Intellivison slots

Posted by atari2600land, in 47 sightings 03 April 2018 · 89 views

While working on Chris's Casino for Virtual Boy, it occurred to me that I think INTV was the only console back then with a roulette game. But it didn't have a slot machine game. So I'm looking to expand the Las Vegas game line with Las Vegas Slot Machine. I don't think the "Las Vegas" name is trademarked. And since there seems to be no TM next to the "Las...

47 sightings: November 22, 2017

Posted by atari2600land, in 47 sightings 22 November 2017 · 144 views

The number 47 has eluded me for the longest time, but now it suddenly comes back in a big way.
I saw an ad for a local department store selling turkey for 47 cents a pound.
Or the basketball game a few nights ago when that guy scored 47 points in a game.
And I opened up the paper and read today's "Pearls Before Swine" comic about the scout leader who took...

47 sightings: September 20, 2017

I was watching TV when I noticed the pace of home runs in MLB has increased 47%. Also, I watched a tiny bit of the second episode of the 47th season of Sesame Street. I think Elmo killed the show a long time ago. And at a trip to the grocery store, I saw a bag of popcorn that proudly proclaimed it had 47 calories per cup. The number 47 has eluded me for a...

47 sightings: August 5, 2017

47 has been bombarding me lately. A few days ago was our 47th consecutive day without rain. A few days later, a 47 year old man who is going to serve 32 years in prison got an extra 30 years tacked on for another crime. Looks like he'll die in prison. When I thought it was all over, I opened the paper today and saw this:

So it's been a hot week. Last ni...

So I was watching TV. About a month ago or so, in an ad for a weight loss thing someone lost 47 pounds. But the big announcement came from another ad. There's going to be a movie out called "47 Meters Down." It's about a couple of girls who go underwater in a cage with sharks when all of a sudden, the rope breaks and they are plunged 47 meters down. I don...

Room #47

Posted by atari2600land, in 47 sightings 10 March 2017 · 339 views

So my dad lives in a retirement home. A day or so ago, he moved across the hall to another room. He was in room #48. He apparently wanted to move across the hall where it was quieter. When he first moved there I lamented about him not getting room #47. So yesterday, he moved. To room #47. Which was odd because I thought room #47 was next to room #48, but...

It has been a while since I updated my 47 sightings, but that does not mean I haven't seen the number 47. Most of the 47 sightings were on TV. Like for example, this car dealership in the Portland area having 47 people available to fix your car. There was a piece of jewelry on JTV (like QVC, but all they do is jewelry) that was $47.99. And then there's th...

Hey gang, saw 47 a couple of times.
One time I was flipping through the channels and saw a show about a baby who weighed 47 pounds.
I also just happened to look at the horoscope (something I never do), and it said for those born today, one of their lucky numbers is 47. It needs to drop one more degree so it can be 47 degrees outside here.
