      The one I find funny is when it's all COKE.   "What Kind of Coke you want?"

      I'll take a Pepsi.  OK  "You?"   Make mine a Dr Pepper or R.C.  OK... and so on haha...

      Here it's Pop too,  though younger peeps may say something else...  I don't think  anyone says "beverages" unless they're in an Arby's commercial or something.

  7. Went caffeine-free yesterday. I almost fell asleep at a urinal. I think I might have a problem.

      I just have one cup of coffee in the morning...No problem.   Best of luck...If you do start on 'one cup a day'...It's no big deal to sometimes skip a day.  It's no fun, and there may be no reason to get out of bed,  but you won't pass out, or shake, or see babies crawling on the ceiling or anything...Best of luck to you sir!

  8. I starting reading my Conan comics again, and found myself getting a bit miffed when the price on the cover changed from 15 cents to 20 cents.

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      Haha Malrak,...I So remember when comics were a quarter, the same as a candy bar...Sometimes I'd get a comic after supper instead of a candy bar, which we often did if we went out to dinner (not all the time mind you).   And I remember being almost perplexed the day I noticed both went up to 35 cents!

  9. Tarkin wasn't the genius everyone thought he was. According to canon, he thought it was better and cheaper to have a swarm of small, fast, lightly equipped fighters than have larger, slower, heavily equipped fighters. So he chose the TIE design over the X-Wing. Probably turned out more expensive because of the need for carriers. DOH! Should have allowed Vader to force choke him.

      Also, the Rebels stole the X-Wings from the plant that made them (with the blessing of the guards who were secretly on their side),...And the X-Wings had Hyperspace capabilities, TIE Fighters did not, and the Empire didn't want their pilots defecting, hence they preferred them not to have Hyperspace capabilities, which could be used to escape...

  10. Early emulators on early computers got a bad rap 'cause they belched, burped and stuttered their way through games. If they ran at all.

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      Keatah,  Tell ya what....If they ever get emulators fixed to where you download an emulator and then add ROMs and THEY WORK...Lemme know, OK?

    1. GoldLeader

      I'll probably see it someday.  For some strange reason, the more I see of Jim Carrey's clips,  Well against all odds, they make it look entertaining...

  15. Labeling Error to Blame for Hospital’s Release of Coronavirus Patient. As people have been saying for years, "labeling is bad."

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      And Now they've labeled it COVID-19  (The new name for the Novel CoronaVirus Discovered in 2019 since they didn't want to get it confused with the common cold which is also a CoronaVirus I guess...)  ..  Thing is,...I'm not a fan of the name.  COVID-19:  Sounds like a company that put out less than memorable Atari 2600 games...

  16. Happy fake money-making holiday.

  17. Ordered a bunch of sealed 2600 games from a seller in Venezuela and within two days they made it to the US, never ever thought they’d get here that fast LOL

      I once chose the slowest shipping to save money from Venezuela...Haha...My mistake,...It took 6 months or more (Might have been 8 more I think on it) to get my M-Network Tron Flight Stick, but the packaging was hilarious...Thing was Covered in Stamps! Like almost fully covered!! haha...

  18. Watched an episode of Tales from the Crypt last night for the first time in 30 years.  It was entertaining!  I kind of lost my interest in horror movies over the years, but this was fun.

    1. GoldLeader

      Oh,...I Love those!  I have a ton of them on VHS tapes from Columbia Hose (haha...er House I mean) I think...I was watching them ages ago, but most are still sealed with the shrinkwrap and everything...Good Stuff!

      Not much to be afraid of my friends.  2% death rate? Just...Don't be a puss.  This virus will be dead by Summer like the common cold, mostly gone by May/June,..A vaccine ready in 16-18 months.   It's not so scary as they make it out to be.

  21. How do you apply to be a pilot for the United States Space Force?

      But Parsecs are distance not time, oh nevermind, (Actually I loved the way the Star Wars Universe legitimized this by referring to it again as a new unit of,...Ah,  scratch that) ...I mean it is under the jurisdiction of the Air Force, wait that is far too serious of an answer...What I was actually gonna say is there's a game like in The Last Starfighter...Find it in your trailer park and they'll come to you!!

       

       

       

       

      (Success!...I was so torn earlier...Feeling tripolar today)...   Hey, maybe the game is Star Raiders!...Dunno

  22. You can just say "Odyssey." Don't need the "Magnavox."

  23. I love the 8bitdo SNES wireless controller, and highly dislike the Retro Bit Genesis wireless. The 8bitdo controller has no problem keeping sync. The Retro Bit Genesis is a pain in the butt to sync every time I turn the Sega on!

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      Preach!

       

      It's like I always say 8BITDO is Awesome!   Hyperkin is Awesome!  Retro-Bit is Crap!

  24. Did you ever hear the tragedy of Lord Karnage?

     

    I thought not. It's not a story AVGN would tell you. It's a CGR legend. Lord Karnage was a Lord of the retro games, so powerful and so wise he could use Youtube to influence the audience to love retro games... He had such a knowledge of the retro games that he could even get his video games from one guy in Qatar. The dark side of the internet is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his audience, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic, he could save others from death, but not himself.
