    The 2020 Retro Game/Junk Box

    @chas10e I kept #14 and sent #15 to Harry. Chewing Bazooka Joe is a thing but smelling? Not sure about that one 🤔 I packed and unpacked three times. For the final pack up, my wife had to help me tape up the box because it was going to pop. I love your typed note, by the way -- an actual typewriter 👍 👍 ❤️

    I saw this in the news, and it's a devastating loss for science. Hopefully we can come to our senses and start rebuilding our scientific infrastructure again.

    Great pic of some great picks ! I only had to repack the box once and that was for the photo-shoot of what I put in. although I did have a practice box before @Atari Creep showed up. I did require for him to have the box sealed specifically for the "mental anguish" aspect of the exercise. we also had a great laugh on the phone about what you find on the floor AFTER you seal the box. How many time did you pack & repack the box ? What numbers are the @nosweargamer 's card packs ? I almost passed on the one I grabbed not being any kind of sports fan. but opened it up and had other great cards in there that I wasn't expecting. I did smell the cards & they didn't smell like the bubble-gum that was included. It's been quite awhile since I opened a pack of cards, is smelling the cards still "a thing"? I'm looking forward to @RickR receiving it to see what gets thrown at him.

    YES! Me too. This version is awesome because the games go quickly (like an Atari game) and the running game actually works. Plus we can pick the Seahawks. And the speech can be pretty funny.

    <SPOILER ALERT> -- Skip if you really do want to guess. Frankly, I tend to forget what I put in without reviewing the pictures I took...but I'm pretty sure you said you needed Genesis and SNES stuff (other members mentioned these systems too). A lot of that stuff got taken earlier (which is great!), but I think at least a few titles made it through. I try not to include sports games unless I think they are really good ones. But I did include NBA Jam as I thought you'd have fun comparing to your favorite SNES version. Madden for SNES is another one I put in, as I really do like that game a lot. And I'm pretty sure I included a Great Golf in hopes that NSG would review it. So please, don't throw sports equipment at me for the sports games -- there was method to my madness.

    Actually, the handheld you got was the one I used for my video. So you got a piece of bonafide YouTube history right there, LOL. Sorry, I forgot to include a certificate of authenticity.🤣

    Ah yes, Goldeneye! I know it's how it works out sometimes, but it amazes me we have the ability to build such a grand structure, but not repair it when two of it's support cables get snapped. I bet RickR & Willie could repair it!

    It's been featured in the X-Files as well but I do remember seeing it in GoldenEye!

    That's too bad. It's a shame that they couldn't repair it. A loss for sure.

    This analogy isn't too far off the mark. It can be the pits, but if you educate yourself by reading the guidelines and follow some simple instructions, you'll do OK.

    Ha! Thanks for the spoiler alert @RickR. I stopped reading and went back to guess. I figured you'd have put some Genesis and SNES in the box 🙂 NBA Jam was the one specific game that made me think it may have come from you for me 👍 Thanks for Madden. Maybe I can learn to play it on these older consoles because the versions for the modern consoles are too hard for this old 🧠

    Aaron, have you tried sending email to Lance? He’s been responsive whenever I send email to place an order. I bought mine a couple of months ago but it didn’t show as back ordered then.

    The Arecibo Observatory is being demolished

    I am saddened by this as this is in my hometown in Puerto Rico. I do understand the reasons, though. I'm glad I got to visit this place more than once, even flew over it and got to see each of the main support towers up close! This observatory made the very first map of the surface of Venus! One of astronomy’s most renowned telescopes—the 305-metre-wide radio telescope at Arecibo, Puerto Rico—is permanently closing. Engineers cannot find a safe way to repair it after two cables supporting the structure suddenly and catastrophically broke, one in August and one in early November. It is the end of one of the most iconic and scientifically productive telescopes in the history of astronomy—and scientists are mourning its loss. “I don’t know what to say,” says Robert Kerr, a former director of the observatory. “It’s just unbelievable.” “I am totally devastated,” says Abel Mendéz, an astrobiologist at the University of Puerto Rico in Arecibo who uses the observatory. The Arecibo telescope, which was built in 1963, was the world’s largest radio telescope for decades and has historical and modern importance in astronomy. It was the site from which astronomers sent an interstellar radio message in 1974, in case any extraterrestrials might hear it, and where the first known extrasolar planet was discovered, in 1992. It has also done pioneering work in detecting near-Earth asteroids, observing the puzzling celestial blasts known as fast radio bursts, and studying many other phenomena. All of those lines of investigation are now shut down for good, although limited science continues at some smaller facilities at the Arecibo site. Read more at: Scientific American
