Mind you, I just signed up for Medicare, so I'm not playing these as a teenager. But being that age means that I was around when video games were invented. At college in the mid-70s I had access to a computer system networked across entire continents ("PLATO") that had graphics terminals and was more than 10 years ahead of its time (the first Macintosh was a decade away). We had email, messaging and serious gaming. I still access a virtual clone of that pre-Cray supercomputer mainframe that runs as an app on some guys PC in California.
Having played for so long I'm pretty good for an old dude. I played one tank battle game for years and was on a ranked Russian team. Our "captain" was bi-lingual and would cross-translate for me the curses from the other players.
Chocolate and sweets? Yeah, those too.
Yes indeed. Screwed with them a bit but never owned any of them. Came close to buying a Pet back in the day but instead got a TRS-80. Not sure why because the graphics and color capabilities of the Commodore machines were really what I wanted to have. I probably decided based on price, and/or the actual ease of use of the Radio Shit item for actual computing...
I love the occasional videos I have seen of cows orgasmically satisfying their itch using those un-attended mechanized cow-scratching brushes. Looks like they are going through a car wash...
@MarySue155@opiatesandchopin I think Symphonie Fantastique was written (or at least partially written) on opium. The last movement is an opium nightmare Berlioz had, but if someone knows more about classical music do let me know. And I never knew that about cows liking a good scratch and back rub. Awwwww.
