My dad worked in the city hall, and back when I was a kid, I got to see a machine very much like this in action. It was SO COOL!!

A few weeks later he brought home an ASCII portrait of John F. Kennedy printed on that perforated green and white computer paper. We'd never seen anything like it.

I worked on an 80 column card punch. I'm pretty sure it was EXACTLY that model, down to the light blue color.

I was living in one of the university dormitories. One of the quarterly rituals was for everyone who had taken these computer classes to take one night during finals week to dump out all of their computer cards (removing any that were personally identifying). It made a fine mess.

As long as your uber isn't a van you'll be fine. Everybody knows bad guys drive vans. White vans will rape and/or kill you. Black vans are the government's and nobody will know about you ever again.

Those guys have kept it going even through regime change. They're good.

Regime change, huh? The government of the ROC (Taiwan) would like to talk with you about that...

I thought it looked delicious, but then had a fear that it might be the bottom of some ancient outhouse or something.

Yeah, but what kind of endorsement is that? He literally couldn't see them. It's kind of like a man endorsing tampons.

Um, I kinda hope that was a serious attack upon that girl because I think that guy suffered a significant neck injury when he got thrown at the ground.
