[quote:post_uid0]THE AMULET OF ARANON THE UNREADY*

This amazing occult amulet grants its wearer tremendous psychic powers.** The visions and prophecies afforded the user have led to the rise and fall of nations.*** But beware the curse that accompanies these great powers!**** Let the unready beware!*****

Price: US$9.99 ea.; US$6.99 for lots of 500 or more
*Actually, [i:post_uid0]an[/i:post_uid0] Amulet of Aranon The Unready. He made thousands of them. We have pallets full.
**Well, not tremendous. Basically, the wearer can see things that have already happened, if the wearer was actually present at the time. We grant that this isn't a very useful power.
***We made this up. Although, an Amulet of Aranon The Unready may have had some impact on the resignation of the Commerce Secretary of Trinidad in 1979.
****Wearing the amulet may lead to a slight increase in psoriasis symptoms. Not much of a curse, but then it's not much of an amulet.
*****We have no idea what this means.[/quote:post_uid0]

[color=#000000:post_uid0]Do they have websites which sell Baguettes of Thwapping? I should supply all my minions with one apiece...[/color:post_uid0]

[color=#000000:post_uid0]Great site, it has to be said. Now if only I had an untraceable credit card. :D

Actually, there was one thing which particularly caught my eye: -

[quote:post_uid0]VORACIOUS ALIEN LIFEFORM BIOSPHERE DESTRUCTION SYSTEM

Chronowerx Industries presents the ultimate in Xenobiological Biosphere Destruction Agents. The Tribble™ is an alien lifeform that does only two things; eats and reproduces. Place one Tribble in a corn field in Iowa, and computer simulations indicate that the entire biomass of the Earth's surface will be converted into Tribbles within 42 days, based on exponential growth. And they're so darn cute, the foolhardy human populace will not realize their peril until it's too late!

Hmmm... now doesn't that company sound strangely familiar. I wonder if this is based upon 29th Century technology as well.[/color:post_uid0]

[color=#000000:post_uid0]Ahh Futures end. I was just watching that last night on my computer. Love that ep.[/color:post_uid0]

[color=#000000:post_uid0]AAAAAaaaAAAAAHHHhhHHHH! My apple! :bursts into tears:
*sends a bunch of sentient grapefruits after Celeste*

No, I"m kidding. And my grapefruits are perfectly well-behaved! They wouldn't hurt a fly if it were pointing a compression phaser rifle at them! :)[/color:post_uid0]

When he takes over, I get to be head of of the federal film program-slash-propaganda director. Pretty cool, eh? ;)[/color:post_uid0]

You could probably work for Fox News then. ;)[/color:post_uid0]


Nan 05-25-2003 07:45 PM

[color=#000000:post_uid0]Nah. I will have all their properties siezed and shut them down for being garish and irritating. There may be labour camp sentences for the graphics people. *shudder*[/color:post_uid0]

mudshark 05-25-2003 09:52 PM

[color=#000000:post_uid0]^ If you'd expand that policy to include some of the network people, as well, I would support you. (Especially for the graphics and sound fx people. <veg>)[/color:post_uid0]

PointyHairedJedi 05-28-2003 02:57 PM

[color=#000000:post_uid0]I've heard it all - and frankly armies of intelligent fruit, muffins, or penguins just aren't going to work. As far as I'm concerned, world domination has just gotta be via a large, shadowy muli-national corporation. One of my friends did propose using televangelism though - I may have to have him eliminated.[/color:post_uid0]

[color=#000000:post_uid0]It's interesting that you apply the word "shadowy" here. Did I ever tell you about the new Microsoft slogan that goes "What Do You Want to Do Today"? :smile:[/color:post_uid0]

[color=#000000:post_uid0]Not especially a website, just two webpages. But this ad is stunning. :O For those of you who may have seen it already, the linked article has some amusing background on the production of the ad.[/color:post_uid0]

NAHTMMM 07-28-2003 01:39 AM

[color=#000000:post_uid0]Another mere webpage, and really only a "webrectangle" at that (try it in Netscape if it doesn't do anything in IE). But it's an amusing clip, even if it is in a language I don't understand (Japanese). It might ring a bell for you anyway. ;) http://www.ntv.co.jp/channel/kasoh/kin10.html



And Nan, it has only just occured to me to point out that, supposedly, a duck's quack does not echo. :blush: ;)[/color:post_uid0]
