The London Times had, from its inception in 1785, only classified ads on its front page. In 1966 they decided to join the real world, and put news on the front page.
Also in 1966, Jonathon Miller made the best adaptionof Alice In Wonderland for the BBC. Despite being in black and white (due to costs) it is truly psychedelic. On May 3rd 1966, the last day the Times had ads on its front page, Jonathon Miller placed an ad for a very long corridor that a rabbit might be able to fall down.
So, does anyone remember that ad?
And will this thread achieve zero responses and views?
Don’t feel rained on. One I started a while back on Troglodytes has had 101 people pass by on the other side. Now don’t you go pissing on a perfectly useless thread, you hear? Just to keep the 0 replies thing from applying.
Yes. You win. I won’t spoil that one for you. There’s a certain je ne sais quoi to that one the practically dares somebody to respond.
Maybe you could pick another more obscure topic and get a less beckoning title and make your first few sentences so bland that not even a mouseover would draw others in. That would put you on the road to stardom in this small but devoutly-to-be-wished category.
You are too modest. It’s such a fascinating review that I am preparing a suitable reply as we speak.
This will have the side benefit of propelling my unspecified 0 responses and 25 views thread even further down the slippery slope that leads to inglorious success in this most challenging of endeavours.
Thanks. I have no objection at all, although it’s over 5 months old now, so might qualify as a zombie thread.
I was actually quite surprised that it go no response, especially considering how many discussions we’ve had about file sharing and copyright infringement here. This was an important court decision in one of the most significant and well-publicized intellectual property and copyright cases of the last decade, and i couldn’t get a single reply!
The oldest 0 Replies thread in the 30 pages of look-back for my username is Move a letter, make a new word – game from 04-13-2007, 08:32 AM in MPSIMS which had 34 views and obviously wasn’t the cup of tea for the time.
If anybody would like to take ownership of the OP and repost it in the Game Room, which wasn’t available at the time, you have my blessings. But I have learned my lesson about reviving zombies in MPSIMS.
