    That's right folk's, just when you thought that you were safe along comes a completely new, exciting tabloid. I'm sure that your Enquirering minds wonder what happened to your old trusty rag. Well let's just say that it's been made bankrupt. So on with the new....


    First issue of the new VR (Virtual Reality) Tattler due this week-end.

    OK OK OK I will give you one little taste before the week-end.

    But before I do...here's the legal stuff.

    The following are parody's ..... half truths (I am sure some are full truths) and other tales from the virtual reality side.

    Well I feel rotten cause you did so much hard work and it looked super..but just knew that if some search engine or other came hunting there might be big problems. :oops: so I will go sit in the corner with you ;)

    But figured, better from me who really cares, than one of those " legal suits" that wanted to give ya three big ones in the shoulder and take yer arm off :D :eek: So it was the right decision.

    Disclaimer...I do not work for NASA. :)



    Scientists at NASA have developed a gun built specifically to launch dead chickens at the windshields of airliners, military jets and the space shuttle, all traveling at maximum velocity. The idea is to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with airborne fowl to test the strength of the windshields. British engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it on the windshields of their new high-speed trains. Arrangements were made. But when the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken hurtled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens, crashed through the control console, snapped the engineer's backrest in two and embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin. Horrified Britons sent NASA the disastrous results of the experiment, along with the designs of the windshield, and begged the US scientists for suggestions.

    NASA's response was just one sentence, "Thaw the chicken."

    :) I am glad to see a new tabloid has emerged from the ashes of the old. Be advised however that the Wildman is still using the services of one Mr. E. Fudd. Mr. Fudd has ensured me that only half truths and questionable stories about the Wildman will slip past him, an the whole truth will never see the light of day. One certain rabbit appears to cause problems, an Mr. Fudd ensures me that a generous supply of carrots should resolve that particular situation.

    Thanks
    Wildman
    :D :cool: :) ;) :p :D :eek: :rolleyes:

    I really love the posts inbetween stories. They take on a life of their own.

    @ Bigbuck...I knew it was a beer, I'm just mad because you are like Wildman with his ice cream.....you won't share!! :D

    @ everyone. I find doing this relaxing, however if there is a story about you that you don't like just PM me and I can fix it.......just adding the legal stuff, I've got this Fudd guy riding my butt.

    @ Wildman. I think Fudd and that rabbit are in cahoots!!

    It's a good thing you 'remembered' letting the readers know, where those reports are written from.

    :eek: If Fudd is in alliance with that rabbit, I'll have no choice but to turn lose a certain crazy duck. If that happens there is no telling what will happen.

    Yes it is true the Wildman does not share his ice cream, he does not get it that often (the spouse can be a mean task master in certain areas). Don't be mad a Bigbuck either, the Wildman don't share his beer (bier) neither (not when one a day is all that is allowed).

    Thanks
    Wildman

    Yes, snowbound's been testing the formulas we've been developing at our labs. I must say that the first time he took the pepper jalapeno beans, he was pretty much heated up! :eek::eek::eek::D

    Actually, the Virtual Reality bean just entered beta, and it did melt a GeForce FX 5800 Ultra and a Pentium 4 Extreme Edition. Apart from this, no other problems, but we do recommend that you have good cooling for your room as well as your PC, plus at least 512MB of RAM :D

    Please do not stock up on animal rams as I've had some of my testers trying to get their rams on me! :'(

    I am looking for more "volunteer" testers, so please contact me if you want to be a tester :D
