Toss Across is a game first introduced in 1969 by the now defunct Ideal Toy Company. The game was designed by Marvin Glass and Associates and created by Hank Kramer, Larry Reiner and Walter Moe, and is now distributed by Mattel. It is a game in which participants play tic-tac-toe by lobbing small beanbags at targets in an attempt to change the targets to their desired letter. As in traditional tic-tac-toe, the first player to get three of their letters in a row wins the game. There are other similar games to the original Toss Across known under different names, such as Tic Tac Throw.
Well, the end of the year means we take a minute to tip our hat to the powers of natural selection. Put on your boots and let's embark on a ride through the world's most stupid acts ever done. The kind that risk your life for no reason. The kind that would've definitely had other solutions, not endangering anyone's life at all, had they been done by non-laureates of the Darwin Awards.
Hi Ernie, These scooters are parked in front of Aleluya store located at 16 carrer del Doctor Dou, Barcelona, Spain. It seems there are 8 parking spots for scooters on the street but the sidewalk is still prefered by some. Rick
Hey Ernie, I know where you can get those drink specials!. I found another pic of the same girl outside a different bar that I could identify as being in Barcelona, Spain. Then searching for Matsuri in Barcelona led me to your drink specials here. Cheers! Brad
Ernie, that would be the Valentina Restaurant in Barcelon, right next door to the Matsuri Japanese restaurant on the Plaça del Regomir. Of course, that pic was taken about 2010, as evidenced by the sign reading Desportes del Mundial 2010 (World Cup 2010) on the big screen (pantalla grande). Love doing these picture hunts. David
Is it me or is Barcelona, Spain some kind of a raging shithole? Graffiti all over the place, bars on the windows everywhere, kicked and dented rolll down security doors. What the fuck. But David raises an excellent facet to these photo challenges; the benefit of being able to read non-English signs to get clues. Of course a pretty fair number of people are fluent in Spanish, but Russian not so much. Because if you are fluent in Russian, I'm pretty sure you can show me exactly where this guy is fishing. Here's a close up of the sign atop the building.
In the early 1950's the People's Republic of China decided there was a need to develop a carbine for issue to the People's Army. The Chinese looked to their new friends to the North, the Soviet Union, for assistance in the matter. The Soviet Union of course offered the Model 1944 Carbine as a logical solution . The Soviets were in production of the SKS at the time, but they did not want to share this new development with the Chinese. The Type 53 was produced in the USSR until 1955 and are similar to the M38 carbines. As the doctrine of the "Human Wave" was shared by both nations, a bayonet would be an essential item on any carbine to be issued. The permanently attached spike bayonet that folds along the rifle's right side into a groove in the stock. You can pick up a war surplus Type 53 for pretty short money -- one for $99 or two for $89 each. But again, these were used in a war and stocks have normal dings, imperfections, and may have arsenally repaired cosmetic hairline cracks.
More than a two handfuls of you were able to identify where some asshole parked their scooter...
Damn Bro! This one was a bitch! But, thanks to my super powers (90% Insomniac and 10% Alcoholic) I tracked it down. I won't go into the winding path of reverse image searches and page translations and Google Street View strolling up miles of weird streets, but I found this which led me to this. Tim
Okay, presuming you're not bi-lingual, here's today's tougher than usual photo challenge. You have to find the exact Shell gas station where this Lamborghini fueled up.
