    Random Image Thread

    How would one derail a random image thread, anyway? Here's one from Tasmania (in a diner/hotel near Miena), thrown up by Google Photos when I was looking for images I'd taken of flooded roads. Amazing how it can be so attentive while also so off-base.

    Well, the Clown Motel does bill itself as "America's Scariest Motel".

    YouTube ads are amazing

    In fairness, you do make a compelling case. I think you might also enjoy any of Novo Nordisk's commercials, or that Humira one with the band (a perennial favourite on a leading ad appreciation forum). And those two-minute commercials that are considerate enough to give you plenty of time to write the phone number down, such as Car Shield and Medicare plans. You might also like some British Public Information Films:

    I will never watch adverts*. If they are unskippable and the adblocker doesn't nuke them, then I'll not bother with the content. So be it. * Well except ones on TV with nice cats in them.

    The Official 'Trying to Find a Specific WAD' Thread

    Only by good fortune: from a backup of a dodgy hard disk ripped out of a long-dead laptop. 1024maps.zip

    Oh, we're going there, are we? Previously posted in this thread.
  10. I dredged this up: dcasali.zip Edit: and this: dmcasali.zip Presented "as is", just grabbed from a backup disk, duplicates, yadda yadda.
  11. The hundred million trillion pengo note would like to have a word with you (there was a billion trillion pengo note, but it was never issued). Even this was nothing compared to the hundred million adopengo note, given that the adopengo ended up equivalent to 2 sextillion pengo. Unfortunately I don't have either of those notes (only photos from the Currency Museum in Ottawa), but I do have some stamps (unpostmarked, so legal tender at the time): Top right is 500000 adopengo. The fact that the forint was introduced at an exchange rate of 1 forint = 4×10^29 pengo (= 200 million adopengo) did give me pause for thought when paying 100 forints to use the bathroom. The pengo itself was introduced at an exchange rate of 1 pengo = 12,500 korona.
  12. Well, there's Call of Dooty:
  13. Might be tempting if I didn't already have... ...ten trillion dollars. Make it dishwasher safe and it may be worth considering.

    Is that a reference to the McDonalds in Roswell? (Someone else's photo; I saw it, but didn't stop for a photo when I was there last month.)
  15. Hang on, you're saying this is like a structured settlement or an annuity? What if I need cash now?

    Can someone link me the Original Doom?

    Toucan (keel-billed/sulphur-breasted/rainbow-billed), Costa Rica, 9 years ago Hadn't seen any toucans at all until late on the last day in the country, and then this one came and posed by the roadside.
  18. This is the thread to post your demos on the classic megawad Icarus by Team TNT. This is a vanilla Doom2.exe-compatible wad, so it makes sense to record demos in that format. Feel free to use Doom2.exe, Chocolate-Doom or of course Prboom+ with -complevel 2. For a table of existing demos on Icarus, look here. -------------------------------------------------- (There follows the original thread-opener:) This demo is just to demonstrate that a standard exit trick can be used in many maps in Icarus. From the text-file: Icarus map24 NM Pacifist in 0:18.
  19. Well I suppose I am on record as saying it is Botvinnik-Portisch.
  20. Our other car is a... At Kathline Rock, Utah. I recently had a chance to get a shot of this vehicle in almost the identical spot at White Sands as the Volvo picture I posted earlier: Hard to say why I didn't "take the shot", other than the fact that my hand was bleeding from just having pumped some air into one of the tyres.

    Facts about Mars

    Yup. Also Sky (stars, galaxies and shit) and Moon. The Moon one is especially cool as it includes landing sites and vehicle paths.

    Monkey Thread

    And here is a howler monkey (in Bermudian Landing, Belize): https://tinyurl.com/4erbnsyc They are notoriously quiet animals, so you'll need to crank your speakers way up to hear much.
