  1. Remember when Bath Salts were going to turn millions of people into face-eating zombies?

    1. Shawn


      And the fact that the dude in Florida who ate that other dudes face off all zombie style "cause he was on bath salts" had a toxicology report done afterward and it turned out there was not a single drop of the shit in his system?

      Some people are just completely bonkers, like Rudy.  People always try to find an excuse, it will never end.

      I remember the sensationalist headlines of one Florida event...

  2. I was excited about it, but once I bought it, it wasn't what I was hoping for. I had more fun with Sim City.
  3. Have you looked at this: https://www.randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-batari-basic-vbb.html#install_vbb
  4. Look over there. It's the Pacific ocean.

  5. If you don't know that bars of soap used to be much larger, you might be a whippersnapper teenybopper. Bar soap was so big that it would get thinner in the middle and split in half.

      Girl Scouts at one time actually sold the cookies themselves.  Now, their mothers sell them while the brats jump around and they aren't even wearing a uniform.  Here's my take, if you want me to give you money, get a wagon, get dressed up in your uniform, and pull the cookies around door to door, otherwise you are just faking it. Fake people living in a fake meaningless culture.  They don't understand initiative, gumption, bravery, pride, any of it.  I don't want their cookies.

      Why back in my day, soap came in a bar the size of a small Volkswagen, We'd get enough lather to fill Lake Erie, and girl scouts would paint your house if they thought you'd buy a box of Angry Samoans, we didn't have those Nintendos with their fancy Pacmens...And sometimes if we ran out of cereal, we'd just eat a box of hornets!

  6. From CNN in 1997: "'Third Rock' star French Stewart has a new job: pitching Motts Clamato juice. Stewart's series of commercials, which guarantee the beverage is 99.9 percent clam free, defend the product's dash of clam juice."

      At least it's not Mountain Dew!

  7. I knew it. You didn't buy enough popcorn. With the amount you're going to be eating, you need at least a 6 month supply for a family of 17.

  8. Are you sure you're ready? You don't look ready.

    1. GoldLeader


      I'm always ready!   I just look like I'm never ready.

  9. Manhandled donkey muffins!

    1. GoldLeader


      Would the opposite be womanhandled horse cupcakes?

  10. You changed your name to Scrubbly Dimwater?

  11. It's almost time for the big UFO limited hangout distraction. Get ready to ignore everything else that might be important.

      Alien Intrusion...?

  12. Nice looking glass you have there. What a project!

    1. Kiwi


      It's a shame I have to knock it over.  Whoops.

    2. Random Terrain

      The project was successfully used to foresee such an occurrence and it was prevented.

    3. Kiwi


      Yet, psychic convention has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

  13. He's wearing it wrong!




  14. Things you probably didn't know about the Titanic:




  15. Have you heard of the COC Campaign? COC stands for "Consume Obey Conform." Used in a sentence: Do you like COC?

      Deliverance was an ass-kickin COC album

      So I'm thinking Random Terrain doesn't like our C.O.C. references...Sorry RT,  but when you've used an acronym since the '80s, ya can't just out of the blue decide it means something else,...numsaying?

      That COC doesn't exist in the timeline I came from.

  16. Around 10 years ago I had a DUMB dream. People were forced to live and work in a huge DUMB. I thought it was one of my random dumb dreams, but maybe it wasn't so dumb.

  17. Thanks. I added those two commercials to the first post (they'll automatically play at those positions when clicked on).
  18. The 1983 page is "done." https://www.randomterrain.com/1983.html I plan to sprinkle in things like new toys, new food, new gum, and so on to these pages, but I figure it's best to just focus on adding images and commercials for now.
  19. The 1983 page seems to be done:



  20. I don't remember seeing this commercial before. It's from November 19, 1983: youtu.be/a4qSAnQdXYc?t=352 As pboland said below, here is Atari's response: youtu.be/a4qSAnQdXYc?t=653 And as pboland also said below, here is Commodore's response: youtu.be/a4qSAnQdXYc?t=863
  21. Check out this commercial from November 5, 1983: youtu.be/czyfI5Q-KgQ?t=151
  22. Enjoy a delicious turkey steak with pork fat:

      Turkey... with pork(!)-fat, my goodness, 

    2. thanatos


      Looks like a fancily named chicken patty.

  23. Tried a Kinder Bueno Crispy Creamy Chocolate Bar the other day and it was pretty good. As their web site says, it's "satisfying but not heavy."



    1. thanatos


      Kinder stuff is great.  I haven't tried that version, but their one with the white filling is awesome.  And they also have ones with crispy cookie outsides called Happy Hippos.

      We get them brought to us when the people from our office in Germany come to visit.

  24. You just sit there on your butt whether you read a book or watch TV, so how are books better? At least you can't get a paper cut from TV.

      Not sure if joking...

    3. GoldLeader


      Well,  I'm not joking.  I never see 7 foot tall monsters you can control for sale on TV!  Only that My Pillow Guy.

      Books usually contain propaganda, which is similar to advertising, but you can't change the channel or hit the mute button. Your only choices are to stop reading the book, burn the book, or pluck your eyes out.

  25. So would using missile0 be the solution? You could widen it and make it taller and change the color, then a virtual sprite would go behind it.
