My work mandated IE6 has disqualified me from this by refusing to understand HTML. So while I won’t guess the name, I will authoritatively state whatever it might be, it’s uggo af.


#67

Didn’t I post the XPS-1 in an earlier “guess the airplane” thread?


#68

Yeah, ‘random’ is a generous misnomer for the bot really - it only takes the first page or so from wikipedia (so is limited to early on in the alphabet) and even then it only uses ones with pictures. Dupes galore!


#69

Haha that XPS-1 is hilarious! Looks like something out of a children’s book.

You think that’s bad, check this one out:

That’s…one way of doing it.

For a PG rated film, they flew a lot of crap under the radar.

Fun fact: Spaceballs was rated PG when it came out.
