Classic Games Monopoly

Thanks to Michael for this link which he sent me after I sent him the link to:

NINTENDO COLLECTOR EDITION MONOPOLY

(Image remove, no longer hosted at original host)

The most recognizable characters in the video game industry – Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Luigi, Ganon, Link, and Kirby – team-up with the world’s favorite board game to offer Nintendo fans of all ages a brand-new, risk-taking gaming experience.

They both look cool!

Those wacky Swedes

Ray sent me this image with the associated description:


I don’t want to seem like an alarmist. Maybe it’s just that some of
us perceive some things a little differently than other folks. But do
any of you notice anything slightly unusual about the dog in this picture.

The scan was done from the inside of the fold-out cover from the new
Ikea 2007 catalogue that many of you may have received in the mail
recently. In fact there’s a good chance the catalogue is sitting on
your coffee table at this very moment.

That’s a slightly disturbing trick of the light.

Peter Brock Dead

Just confirmed, he was killed during a race in WA when he left the track and hit a tree.

I think that terrorists are targetting Aussie icons. Rumours that he was hit by a ’74 Corvette are incorrect and in bad taste.

A legend of Australian motor sports and an all round nice guy, they didn’t call him Peter Perfect for nothing. His wiki entry has already been updated, amazing.


Peter Brock died at the age of 61, in a racing accident after colliding with a tree during TargaWest ’06 in Western Australia September 8, 2006, near the township of Gidgegannup. Brock was driving with Mick Hone in a Daytona Coupe.

R.I.P. Brocky

Traditionally these things happen in threes, first Steve Irwin, now Peter Brock..I’m hoping for Paris Hilton to be eaten by a bear, just to restore the balance of the universe.
