    when i were a wee lass

    We didnt have a computer to write our stories with, we had type writers...
    and word processers..they were like large electric typewriters some with a screen

    one day they invented computers

    they came in hundreds of cardboard boxes with a armful of instuction books and all you could really do with them is play games

    they games were extremely exciting...

    I remember one where a plane travelled horizontally across the screen above a city flying lower and lower, the idea was you flatten the city before you crash into it

    the games were inside a cassette, like a small music cassette and placed inside a cassette player

    there were new fangled things like mouses and stuff or the internet

    when i were a wee lass

    there was no internet

    How can a man die better than facing fearful odds for the ashes of his fathers and the Temple of his Gods?

        I've heard of these machines. Make a mistake and you would have to start all over again or worse yet use a product called 'White-Out' which was like paint. You would 'paint' over the mistake, let it dry, and then type over it with the correct letter. The thing is though the White-Out 'paint' was bright and if there was a spot on a page it would stand out like an Arab in Reagan airport on 9/14/2001. In addition it had a very, very, sloppy look to it...actually makes me physically ill thinking about it. Such barbarics back then, I wouldn't be surprised if the people who used those machines ate their own young when hungry, bunch of sicko's.

                UTD what does an Arab look like?
                A samurai bares no sign of weakness, even when dying of hunger.

                  Depends on which part of the world you are coming from...

                  For the rest of the world, an Arab looks no different than any other person...

                  For an American, he has bombs strapped to his chest and maniacally shouts Allahuakbar!

                      that map is how Chandbeti would describe the world.

                          An Arab is a person with a turban on who has a bomb strapped around them and they drive around a camel and have sand in their sandles, duh cat-woman.


                          Before Lussi makes that his signature let me point out I am being sarcastic.

                          Oh and they might interact with Dragons, or so I've heard.
