    Some of those posts are really hilarious. It's like a primitive version of Slashdot.

    The Safehouse was an Apple II-centric BBS, so they were probably taken from these logos.

    interesting..

    Things like this and the Sears Catalog pictures i linked to make me wish for a time machine..

    Imagine screwing with people's heads back then.

    Commadore will rule the world in 2007!
    We will be eating astronaut food!
    The Cubs will win the world series!

    Purple Rain was the worst movie ever made. I've seen better acting in porn. Last Starfighter was awsome back in the day.
