2000 New Millennium Y2K Changed Fredthebear

Shazam! Eureka! Ughh?? The original collection has been split in two to make more room.

Thank you Benjamin Lau, inlimbo, cat fancy.

* Cannes 2002: Game Collection: Cannes 2002

Post from: john barleycorn to <HeMateMe> The Irish are considered the sharpest in Europe...NOT. To illustrate: A Russian, an American and an Irishman are discussing their space projects. The Russian says "We are going to fly to Mars." The American says "We are going to fly to Venus." The Irishman says "Guys, that is nothing. We will fly to the sun." "To the sun?" the other two asked. "Your spaceship will burn." Says the Irishman "Yes, we thought so too. But we will fly at night."

Good luck to all! Many of us won't be around to see that day (or night, as the case might be). How about we clean up all the pollution left floating about in space first?
