Merry Christmas everybody on ATS!
I got a huge monitor for a present, which I've just managed to plug in, although I must still fiddle with the focus. Everything is huge and somewhat
pale, but boy am I proud of myself for finding all the plugs.
Despite my best efforts the screen also seems to be facing downward, but it's the attachment that fits on the stand.
Of course I couldn't wait to see what my favorite website looked like, and my surprise was big when the opening page had a pic of a wide-screen pair
of lady's buttocks (stark naked I might add).
I think it's called the "X-Scanner".
It seems to advertise a device that allows one to see through people's clothing.
I figured that I'd seen all that in a different form in the back pages of old comic books that I read when I was a kid.
Back then they called it "X-Ray" glasses.
It was right next to the Sea Monkeys, who lived as monkey-like mermaids in idyllic family groups.
They still sell them now as shrimps, but all the magic is gone.
How sad to think those wonderful gadgets were all scams.
Did anybody else get excited about owning sea monkeys, or X-ray glasses and similar paraphernalia?
Does it exist today as the advert suggests, and we can see naked bottoms through a phone screen?
I guess that might prepare kids for a career as security guards at an international airport.
I'm sure the Sea Monkeys also inspired kids in the past to become entrepreneurs, marine biologists, artists, anthropologists or missionaries.
