Students, professors and hobby folk launched the H.A.L.E (High Altitude Lego Extravaganza), 7 Lego:Mindstorms robots designed for different experiments attached to a weather balloon, exploded at 30km above the Earths surface.
Now I like lego, still have some probably, but sending a Lego Robot, hopefully with a little Lego astronaut inside, possibly with some Lego Astronaut ice cream too, is a genius idea. Not so much for scientific merit but just the idea. And the surprisingly cool pictures sent back too ( a SLR camera was attached, taking pictures at intervals)

Which reminded me of Bach's Air being played on Stylophones.
And two more for good measure.
Zelda being played on the Stylophone.
And a 3.5" floppy drive programmed to play the Imperial March from Star Wars.

The ACME catalog lists an extensive A-Z of ACME related products. Showing a screen cap and related info on where it was seen, when and a nice little tag for each product, the above being:
ACME Earthquake Pills are guaranteed to create huge tremors anywhere,(except when used on road runners)
Great fun and suprisingly informative.

I fucking loved Pogs. I really did. I mean ok they're just small circular pieces of cardboard, with pretty patterns and colours (occasionally something shiny is printed on it) but there is something about the damn things.
I remember the first few series were of Pogman and his adventures or something. But with most collectable items from the 90s, there were knock offs and spin offs.
From what i remember (from what i have in front of me) there were Batman/Power Rangers/Sonic/Premier League and the normal Chinese knockoffs.
From the normal Pogs, and their parental Kinis (used to slam down on the stack), there was also Tazos, the stackable yet connectable little game. I remember the Looney Tunes ones mainly. These were slightly better than Pogs, because no one knew of the Pogman and his crazy antics, whereas we all know and love Bugs, Daffy et al.
I also had a milkcap maker, with which i made Pogs out of Beano comics or playing cards or anything i could, it was a neat idea but came too late into Pogmania.
Check Milkcapmania for a rather extensive list of Pogs and i think Tazos too.
I'm off for a game, anyone want to play for keeps?

1.) Find a gun, it's not best to get too close to Mr Bitey.
2.) Loose clothes cost lives, Mr Bitey becomes Mr Grabby too.
3.) Have an injured person or a fat person in your group since when you are trying to escape it's best to scuttle someone for the survival of the group.
Now for those who might not know what Scuttling is read below:
Scuttling is the act of deliberately sinking a ship by allowing water to flow into the hull. This can be achieved in several ways - valves or hatches can be opened to the sea, or holes may be ripped into the hull with brute force or with explosives. Scuttling may be performed to dispose of an old or captured vessel, as an act of self-destruction to prevent the ship from being captured by an enemy force, as a blockship to restrict navigation through a channel or within a harbor, or to provide an artificial reef for divers and marine life.
So if your fleeing police/zombies/chavs it's probably best for the group that someone gets scuttled, they know their going to slow everyone down, so go on take one for the team. This sort of act can be used anywhere, hunting for example.
You and your son, lets call him Timmy, are fishing by the stream when suddenly a bear comes from behind you intent on killing you both for taking his fish. Now what options are open to you:
1.) You put your son behind you and try to fend of this behemoth
2.) You put your son on your head and both make loud noises, making yourselves as big and loud as possible, hoping the bear gets scared.
3.) You give Timmy a dead leg, throw him to the ground and jump into the stream. After all once you get home and regale the wife in the story, she will be so pleased to see you that you are gonna have a child again within 9 months.
You could even call him Timmy.
