  • Type: "DICK+BUTT", hit "Enter" and "BUTTFUCK" will appear on the screen of a first generation Texas Instruments Speak&Spell. A neighbor's father was one of the original programmers of that machine when I was a little kid, and you bet that that used to send us into a fit of giggles!!!!! Try it.

  • When I was a kid, I used to always laugh at my speak n spell machine when I pressed the letter ‘W’. All my parents heard when I was playing with this thing in my room was: “Wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou wubbayou”

  • I used to spend much time playing with "Dr Sbaitso" on my PC as part of a Sound Blaster card. circa 1992. It was touted a computer counselor, but acted like an "8 ball toy" having only a limited amount of responses. And taughted you to say bad words or talk about more personal things. Can be found now operational online.

  • I'm pretty sure the info about the "talking cars" also having little phonographs in them is incorrect. Apparently there was a model like that as shown in the video but the voice from the old Chryslers that had them were clearly using synthesizers. Some kind of Texas Instruments hardware I believe.

  • small inaccuracy. the particular car you show is an old Chrysler lebaron, In 1982 or 3 Chrysler partnered with TI to make a voice box using the same tech used in the speak and spell. its the same voice and is true speech synth. the Grand national is a different car made by Buick who did indeed use records.

  • It is Scientifically Proven that the Earth is an Irregular Plane (Irregular refers to the Lands, which have elevation and deviation. Plane refers to the Standing Bodies of Water, which are always level), which is created because of Intent, Intelligent Design. If you want to watch a quick video to sum all this up, it's explained phenomenally by a Scientist (Realist) known as Del: and also: Here's why: First of all, remember that Science DOES NOT belong to any institution. It DOES NOT belong to a particular group or person. It belongs to every single human being alive. The ones searching for truths according to the type of the claim become Scientists. People searching for truths also become Realists (Truth Seekers). Science means exploring the inner and outer surroundings of ourselves. There are three different types of Sciences: A) Natural Science B) Formal Science C) Social Science Social Science deals with people and their behaviours. Formal Science deals with Mathematics and it's assumptions (Mathematics is a language, which means that we can create anything and make it mathematically correct, but that means NOTHING in real life), Natural Science deals with Objective Reality (The immediate or physical reality). If someone claims that something exists in the Objective World, OTRMDPPs are needed for that claim to be Scientifically Proven. OTRMDPPs means Observable, Testable, Repeatable, Measurable, Demonstrable, Practical Proofs which MUST be verifiable by every single human being alive. Without OTRMDPPs, the claimed thing is considered pseudoscience, or a belief. I now shall ask the question "What is the shape of the earth we stand upon?" and then immediately proceed to look for OTRMDPPs. I found out that some lands are elevated (Mountains), some lands are deviated, some lands are level. We can then conclude that the lands are Irregular in shape, which means not all lands are elevated, not all lands are deviated. The next OTRMDPP is Water. Water is abundant. It is the second most important thing for human beings to survive (number one being air), which means that every single human being alive has access to it. The bodies of water are largely found in Oceans. I then found out that the bodies of water need a container to stay still (stand). If there isn't a container, I found out that they will flow until they find the lowest point to stand upon. Bodies of water stand, if there is a container, which means we can call them Standing Bodies of Water. I then found out that Standing Bodies of Water are always Level (Which means no elevation or deviation from the starting point to the end). If not messed with in any way (for example the air pushing the water), Standing Bodies of Water are also perfectly still. I then tried to pour some water in a completely sealed rectangle shaped container, this did the trick. The water then starting to fill up the container until the very top. If I pour any more water, it will flow away. I then measured it to see if it was perfectly level, and to my surprise, it was perfectly level without any deviation or elevation. Obviously water is the MOST perfect tool we got to make something level. Water takes the shape of a container. I then got an idea to use a sphere. I started to pour the water onto the sphere, but then the water flowed off from the sphere immediately to the lowest point, that tells me that Water DOES NOT conform to exterior of shapes. There is also ANOTHER OTRMDPP. The floor cannot rise to our eye level if it were a ball, no matter the size. Because spherical geometry makes it impossible for floor on a ball to rise to our eye level. Watch this video for more info: With the help of OTRMDPPs, I have concluded that the Earth is an Irregular Plane (Irregular refers to the Lands, which have elevation and deviation. Plane refers to the Standing Bodies of Water, which are always level). I will then ask another question "Did something create this world?". After searching for OTRMDPPs, I found that anything, be it dirt, or water, or rock, can't be created from thin air, stuff cannot pop out of thin air, not even randomly. With the help of OTRMDPPs, it is Scientifically Proven that this world has been created by Intelligent Design. There is absolutely no other option. This world, the entirety of it, is infinite. Because if there's a starting point and an end point, what created the starting point and end point? Then what created the one which created the starting point and end point? Where is it located? It's infinite regress. Only logical solution is infinite. Sure, our lives, the physical world may have a certian finite feature, but the whole thing, the primer mover, has got to be infinite, eternal. Watch this video for a better understanding: Now I had some curious questions, "What about the sky? What about the two light things that move in the sky? What about stars that move in the sky at night?" Before we go any further, I want you to remember about two more different things when it comes to the Objective World, the Intangible and the Tangible. Intangibles are those objects which are not in our immediate reality. For example, If I see a house far away, I cannot measure how far away it is or how big it is, I need to get near it first. Tangibles are those objects which are available in our immediate reality. For example, I am typing this article on my iPad, which means that I can touch it, I can observe it in full 3D. I can rotate it around completely to touch and see the whole shape, I can measure it, I can also interact with it. The sky is Intangible. The Moon is Intangible. The Sun is Intangible. The Stars are Intangible. OTRMDPPs are NOT available. Every single capable human being should be able to reach the sky and OTRMD with Practical Proofs the things in the sky in full 3D, if not, we do not know what those objects are in the sky, and trying to come up with ideas about what those might be are nothing but assumptions, ideas, beliefs. We live ON Earth, not IN the sky. Now, OTRMDPPs tell us that because this world contains Air Pressure, there is no other way, this world is CONTAINED. OTRMDPPs tell us that this world is CONTAINED in SOME way, we do not know the shape of the container. But without a solid container, Air Pressure is literally impossible, I'm afraid. TV Screens, hearsay, white coat guys talking nonsensical mathematical equations are NOTHING but beliefs and mental thoughts, TV Screens are NEVER going to be concluded as Scientific Proofs, the things shown in the TV Screens are NOT PHYSICAL. Last but not the least, one last question "Why are things falling downwards?" Well, the way things fall has NOTHING to do with the shape of the earth. "But Gravity!" What is "Gravity"? Can we OTRMD with Practical Proofs? NO. Is it a magical pulling force which allows some things to fly and pulls down some things to make them fall? Can two objects come closer without some sort of push? "Yes, in space" ARE YOU THIS STUPID? We live right NOW, on EARTH, not in some magical fantasy land! In order for two objects to come closer, I either have to push one object to the other from the front, or push the second object from it's back to the front. Motion is ONLY created if something presses on something else. Pull is just a term for push. Things that weigh more than air fall down, things that weigh less than air float. If you want to go deeper and ask why do things even have weight, we have to first explore the whole earth to get a good understanding. But if you're curious anyway, I suggest you watch this video: and this: "Why does it matter? I don't care about the shape!" Well, I will address you some important questions, "If the Earth is an Irregular Plane, why are these governments lying?" They're lying because they don't want people to explore the world and find out what's out there. "Don't you want to know about your existence, the purpose of life?", they gave us a 2D map, they're showing the map everywhere, and people are accepting the map WITHOUT exploring the world! How can we verify or falsify a map without physically exploring first? We are trusting governments as if those corrupted psychopaths are our mom and dads! Do you like being imposed by strangers? All the governments are CONNECTED. If we have the truths about our existence, about what created this, about the whole place, we do NOT need religions, philosophies, beliefs. The majority of people are in debts, some are poor, and some are incredibly and suspiciously rich... then HOW IS THIS A GOOD SYSTEM? The government is imposing it's subjective version of what's good and what's bad on the whole world and people are accepting it? You don't want equality, compassion, love, respect? If a person kidnapped ten people and he's forcing them to do things with or without their consent, he automatically becomes a criminal. What's the government doing? BOTH ARE DOING THE EXACT SAME THING, IMPOSING! THE MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION HAS STOCKHOLM SYNDROME! But, of course, if you have OTRMDPPs that contradict reality, please feel free to share it with me. Thank you for reading this article. If you still have any doubts, please feel free to email me at ‪‬. Please remember that personalities have nothing to do with Objective Reality. I'm not associated with anyone, I can only represent myself. We should not judge people by their personalities unless that's your game. I don't judge people by their personalities (His voice is a bit weird, his hands are tiny! His face is ugly! He is fat! He has tattoos!), I came for the content, and that's what I should think about.

  • I have vinyls with "double spiral", so that there are two tracks on the same side of a maxi single. You just put the needle to a slightly different spot and it plays the other track. Vinyls that play from the inside to outside are pretty neat too. Wouldn't that be the more natural way because of the centrifugal force in any case? Sometimes the needle also travels through big segments of the disc in a short time and you can see that there is something special carved on that part. Vinyls are fascinating.
