  1. Why don't the Harlem Globetrotters win every NBA championship? They seem so dominant in the sport.

      I've often wondered why the Globetrotters aren't in the NBA.

      What is the exchange rate on likes vs. prayers?

      You talking about Boonga Boonga?

      Billy Mitchell would like a word.

  4. I need to stop putting important things away in a safe place, because then I will never, ever, find them again.

      On the other hand you could be long me and suddenly find two TurboGrafx games you forgot you had!

      Also I forgot where I put those pills that are supposed to help me not forget where I put things...(jk)

      I score 5.49 every time I play. But but the stupid timer keeps running after I'm done driving.

    3. Flojomojo


      My Dragster score is bigger than yours!!! :-P I could do it in 30 seconds while you fetch me a beer

  6. To be fair, if Winnie Cooper was my girlfriend, I might be driven into that sort of insanity too. That girl is as cold as ice!

      Apparently I'm going to have to Google Fred Savage... I have no idea what is going on.

      Lol. What does Corey Feldman's alleged activities have to do with the creators of that game?

  8. Fred Savage is dead to me. My VHS copy of The Wizard is going into the fireplace tonight.

      Getting paid off happens all the time. Why would you pay a potential 5 years plus in lawyers fees versus a settlement that may only be what it would cost you for that lawyer for 1 year?


    3. Nathan Strum

      To be fair, that's where The Wizard belonged in the first place.

      Of course, we don't know what exactly happened but I guess he held her hand and asked for an affair. He was 17. Sounds like puppy love or something. Not that it wasn't distressing for the woman.

  9. NHL 94 last man standing Jaromir Jagr placed on waivers. This might be the end.

    1. atari2600land


      How many people from NHL 95 are there left? Any?

      @GoldLeader, yes, that's exactly what people would be doing if they weren't trying for a record.

      Not that it matters, but do the math... just do the math...

      at those temps...

    1. CPUWIZ


      Yep, just like flu shots are causing a wide spread outbreak of the flu. Because, FaceBook, or should I say FakeBook?

    2. Albert


      As I posted in the thread, this article is bullshit. You can read Tesla's response in the thread.

  11. This touch bar is great. Everything that used to take one button press now takes two or three!

      Macbook Pro.

  13. When we were kids, we were so poor we had to eat our Tide out of a box.

      we always had to wait for the dry cleaners next door to throw away their 5 gallon bleach containers. Would pour out what we could and used a turkey baster to suck up the rest. Now those were the days!

    3. zylon


      We had to do our wash out-tide because we had no room to do it in-tide.

    4. ColecoGamer


      Tid-el wave!!!

  14. A debit machine slip is not a receipt.

    1. StanJr


      Well, technically it is a receipt of your transaction with the debit machine, is it not?


    2. xucaen


      If I don't like my money can I return it for a refund? :D

    3. moycon


      It's the very definition of a receipt..."a written acknowledgment of having received, or taken into one's possession, a specified amount of money, goods, etc."

  15. Thursday I don't care about you.

      A "Back to the Future" remake? Blasphemer!

    4. SlidellMan


      I think we owe Robert Zemeckis and Frank Booth an apology.

  17. I looked up the definition of irony in the dictionary and found the Google corporate motto.

      LOL ok I know that song just not the quote.

    3. HoshiChiri


      The 'Hold' function at work requires a phone number on the tags, and the computer won't let 1234 go- so Jenny holds a lot of crap where I work.

    4. Swami


      @Atarian7 - I assume you don't know what the song is about then?

  20. Flying these days is so degrading. Had to take off my belt at security and pants were falling down.

      Some people just don't like Game Gear games. I don't know why. They're in color.

      I've found that even once you board the plane, it's fairly common to be treated like trash by the flight attendants.

      using your run of the mill router..

      you didn't specify what hitron no details so enjoy the generic answers

    4. BillyHW


      Pingplotter doesn't separate the upload packet loss from the download packet loss. The modem is CGNM-3552-ROG

  22. So maybe if I take all the brands of allergy meds at once, one of them is sure to work!

    2. jd_1138


      That's what I take, generic Zrytec. It's like 15 bucks for a year supply at Costco. Kirkland brand. The other ones don't work for me

    3. jaybird3rd


      Claritin works well enough for me, but it isn't the strongest option out there, and it seems that you have to take it for two or three days before it begins to have an effect.

    4. carlsson


      My former family doctor was afraid of seeing blood, but specialized in allergies. Unfortunately (?) I'm not aware that I'm allergic to anything, so I never got to test his skills.
