"Omnia is a multimedia encyclopedia published by De Agostini. It is distributed on 5 CD-ROMs. It includes an encyclopedia of 40,000 entries, a dictionary of 15,500 and a geographical atlas. There are also videos, GIF animations and 21,000 3D maps, anatomies and images. The narrative voice is by the voice actor Carlo Valli.

It has a section with the biographies of the main famous people of the world of every era and can be updated from the internet. It also includes research by subject areas and innovative design. Furthermore, it uses Boolean logical operators for searches."

how much i used it in elementary school... it's one of the things that most shaped my current tastes, like the whole 90/05 era probably... i miss that atmosphere of a utopian future.
"Very old encyclopedia" should be a hefty set of dusty leather bound books! I feel so old right now that CD-ROM encyclopedias could be considered ancient :lol: It's what, 25 years old? That'd be like thinking a '70s encyclopedia was grandad shit in the 90s.... oh right :D

Reminds me of when I called a certain episode of Scooby Doo 'ancient' as a kid and caused my decade-or-so-older sister to pout about her age :lol: all in relativity!

CD-ROM encyclopedias take me back to dicking around with Encarta on my neighbour's office PC. No interest in the actual dictionary part of course - it was all about the supplementary edutainment quiz disguised as a dungeon crawler!

Funny, these days I'm actually nerdy enough to get hype for Boolean Logical Operators - with a bit of wiggling, you might be able to abuse those and make the system perform arbitrary calculations, like some sort of arcane technomancer.

I'm not right wing and you should learn to read. My point of view isn't confusing and I have my facts straight.
Glad we cleared that up! :lol:

I love it, but in particular throughout that period, there was a different, futuristic design that projected you into the future (Utopic Future)... today's stuff projects me into the present instead... and doesn't give me any kind of inspiration.

No worries. Get retraining. :lol:

Yeah, nothing so wistful or provocative as nostalgia for a future that never came and angst toward corpo-capitalism!

The very term Web 2.0 Gloss makes me gag a little. Web 2.0 - on the whole - was a terrible, terrible mistake :lol:

Getting a Vote Communist! brochure through my letterbox this morning.

As a rule, political postings are destined for the recycle bin regardless of provenance, but it gave me a chuckle to see the hammer and sickle stood alongside the usual crop of British Endemic Party A, British Endemic Party B and The Local Local Party bumph.

Alas, I fear they promise too much - redistribution of power is an expected bullet, but ending various overseas conflicts with a view to global peace is a bit of an overreach for this pokey little island. We're not exactly World Police over here :lol:

Nice! Back at my home town, I could vote Monster Raving Loony Party. Alas the only fringe nutters here are a pacifist group who think we should demilitarise Britain then chill out smoking weed all day. At least the Lib Dems would leave us with a few Typhoon squadrons to deal with Russian bombers!

Today I learned how to upload images on https://imgur.com to post them here on the forum ... and it made me smile.

Is this how I am supposed to use this thread? :)

The Baltimore subreddit is the home to many SWAT raid photos and videos. There was a doozy in the county earlier today, and someone posted this gem in the comments.

My favorite is the cop that keeps looking at the lemon cake.

MILF HUNTER RE:AWAKEN ~ WHITE QUEEN RIDES AGAIN

Post by BIL »

Fucking Christ lads! By God and Harry and Saint George! (◎w◎;) As a leal beastman of the former colonies, I always held a feral MILFy reverence for auld news slapper Kay Burley. Image But tonight, hearing her shouts and moans of anguished primal release, I could practically feel her nude body undulating feverishly against mine! Clinging desperately to me, her face buried in my neck as my Beast Hand liberated her auld pussy like a vintage Famicom cart from its mint CIB prison! Cue THE THEME OF PROFESSOR DR. BIRUFORD, as your humble thrall proceeds to dutifully slake his WHITE QUEEN's ancestral desire for the BEAST ROD AND SCEPTRE OF WEST INDIA that is HERS BY DIVINE RIGHT ImageImage

Wretched beasts, the lot of us. Image Do you know how many mongled Famicom boxes I've seen, in my time? There's no need to v-crease the lid with your ham thumb, you godless lesser animals. Do better than yourselves! This loyal servant will teach you a Beast Technique! First, the setup, assuming dextral; invert as needed, per sinistral. Extend your right middle and index fingers in parallel, sliding them under the box, which is cradled in your left palm. Now, for the real technique: use your thumb to delicately clamp the box, before gently teasing its edge into the gap between front cover and top flap. Mildly flex the cover upward with your thumb, alternating by pulling down/back on the flap with equal care, gradually widening the gap. Do not force either! The box has a natural give, responsive to the mild pressures exerted by your hand. Soon, as the gap admits more of your thumb, you will feel the flap giving way, before it pops free, and the riches of compassionate handling avail themselves to you! Altogether, it is not unlike the patiently coaxing pressures one employs as a gentleman pleasing his ladyfrie-

...

Chaps, I just realised why there are so many mongled Famicom boxes. Image

And sexually frustrated women. :shock:

EDIT: AH FUCK LADS! I WAS THINKING OF HER FROM FIFTEEN YEARS AGO (◎w◎;)
NAWWW
(`w´メ)

It's too late lads. Ben Franklin a great white man, but I respectfully differ on some things, and GILFs be one. (˘w˘) Anyway, it kinda sucks for those having any illusions of British media impartiality! My once-MILFy lady was in flushed ecstatic delight at her team's success! :shock:

But a rod is a rod, you know? (■`w´■)

EDIT2: Waaait a minute. What is going on with your news MILFs, lads? :o

Jfc you really could hear her "o face" in that one. I mean, good for them all. I know little to nothing about the British government, but I listened to some of what that tory PM twat had to say before and it was awful. John Oliver did a big old piece on it last week.

It's a MAD MILFADEMIC, brother vol.2! :o The second auld bird's flustered joy actually got her BBC privileges revoked, phwoaar m8. :cool: The poor woman temporarily forgot her august station, overcome by her excitement for the Johnson! :shock:

Image

Can't blame the Big British Castle, really. Hers was the sparkling gaze of delighted selection, naming you her Second Best Bond, whereupon her heart cries out for you to roger more! If our lady telejournalist is so enflamed by BoJo having his poncing collar felt, she's liable to join Ms. Burley in full-throated climax, should the fat foppish twat get shot, or choke to death on scampi! All in view of the king's expensively taxpayer-funded cameras Image

Well, speaking of rogering, DON'T MONGLE THE FAMICOM BOX YOU HAM-HANDED SPACKERS (■`w´■) Christ, sorry, this really is an uncanny confluence of lovely creations in need of practiced handling for ideal results. Image
