Oh sh... if my dad ever gets one of those none of us is safe. :D

There's been an otter sighting in the nature area between The Hague, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht. Otters went extinct here in the late 80s due to pollution and run-ins with cars, and this sighting means that the water quality in said reserve is great for the picky otters. Otter back, wolf back... great times for nature in The Netherlands!

Well, I saw someone post this in the mamedev forums. I can't imagine spending this much for a game, no matter how rare it was

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? :shock: You can use that much money to put down a deposit for a HOUSE, never mind a game. Heck, if I had that much, I could pay off my mortgage, and then this flat I live in would be MINE!!! :twisted: ALL MINE!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! *cough cough* ;)

Seriously, who spends that much on a game?!? Pardon me if this is arrogant, but... too much money and not enough brains, in my not-so-humble. *shrug*

Holy Cow. I remember several years ago that this game alone was worth at least 10K. Man that price has skyrocketed. I don't see any sane person spending that much money on a very rare game.
FREEZE SCUM!!

Not sure what happened last night, but distractify seems to be working fine now. *shrug* These sights are amazing... they remind me of paintings or (in the case of the Aurora Borealis in Iceland) of Skyrim. ;)

ARGH..... not sure what's going on with this forum, but when I tried to post the reply (above), I was given the usual "503" error - so I tried posting again, and succeeded, only to find (to my chagrin) that I've accidentally double-posted. :( Can this post be deleted, please?

Not sure if this qualifies, but I'd say this is pretty cool and interesting: Medieval combat championships in Spain. Here are some pictures. :D

Dude. It's Spain. So naturally it falls under cool and interesting! :)

Looks like a phoenix company is trying to act as a video game preservationist. It's first target? Mega Man.
You like manuals. You like manuals. You love them. You cannot resist manuals.
Your gameplay experience is meaningless without manuals.
