I expect that to be repackaged into something more glam and hawked by Gwenyth Paltrow's Goop in a matter of weeks.

I had an Atari 400 and it came with a BASIC cartridge that had to be inserted into the game slot. That offer included "instructional material" and probably some programs (presumably recorded on cassette tapes which was how those Atari computers saved/received programming, at least other than via a game cartridge), so maybe not entirely a ripoff except for the implication that you took that one must buy that package to get BASIC at all.

At that time I had some BASIC programming background so I was able to adapt programs others had made to work on the Atari screen like that ancient "Star Trek" game where you commanded the Enterprise to look for and destroy Klingon ships in a universe of 8x8 sectors in which each sector was an 8x8 grid. Ah, those were the days....

Yeah, I remember using my father's cassette recorder to store/load programs. In fact, I kept a notebook with the cassette counter numbers so I could fast forward to the right program.

The 800XL didn't have a separate BASIC cartridge, though. Instead, cartridges could override the built-in ROM.

Hey! I'm the guy in this photo. This was at a Know Your Meme party at the Museum of the Moving Image in NYC. They had a gallery of memes hanging on the wall. I noticed my wife was wearing a red dress so I suggested she pose in front of the girl in the photo. While I was taking her picture someone came up to me and asked if I wanted to be in it, so I hopped in. Then the girl in blue walked up and said, "Hey! Let me be the other girl!" The whole thing was spontaneous and random, and of course it happened on the one day in my life I'm not wearing a plaid shirt.

Pretty funny that our silly photo of us in front of a meme is now a meme itself (just tweeted by Zach Braff). I Air Dropped the photo to the girl in blue after we took it a few weeks ago. She put it on Facebook a few days ago. I guess the person who first put this on Reddit must have seen it there and decided to imply that we are older versions of the people in the meme, but we are not. As others have pointed out, I'm the dude from Improv Everywhere, and my wife is an actress, and we host a political podcast together. I don't know much about the girl in blue, but she was nice!

There was a dusting of snow here in Kamloops today. The stuff at my altitude melted off by about 10 am.

We just had a tornado warning. Freaking weird.
Now there is a watch until 9pm
Lived in the NY tri-state area most of my life and never experienced these things, and now in the last ~10 years they are just not uncommon anymore.

Just one example from many: the tapestry in the upper right from "Cars 2" is a Cars version of the tapestry from "Brave".
