I distinctly remember the Lustige Taschenbuch book having prices in currency for several countries on their covers. Among them were all german speaking countries + italy.


#122

That was only because you could buy these German books in Italy. :slight_smile: Like the “Bild Zeitung” (newspaper) they were available especially in the regions with German tourists. :slight_smile:

It happened also the other way around. As a kid I noticed that some of the stories I was reading had a “D-####” number at the beginning while most of them had “I-####”. They were usually stories with Donald Duck and Fethry Duck, the author and artist were not specified, and the drawing style was very different from what I was used to.

It didn’t happen that often, but still…

March 23rd, 1999. Issue #2260

That was what I assumed, yes. And it seems to me now, there might be more to it than just pandering to a certain group of tourists.

I remember that day like it was yesterday. It was a cold day in december…wait, what?


#126

Damn, that’s to be expected…


#127

So, do you regret the ending now?! Do you regret everything abruptly fading to black??
I didn’t like the ending. :grin: En garde!!

I have no idea why the forum suggests particular old messages to me but it’s doing a surprisingly decent job.

@ZakPhoenixMcKracken has a slightly warped sense of age because of this:

I … ehm… Phoenix Wright became attorney at age 23.
Way too old, huh…

Italian political puzzle is going to a conclusion. There’s a candidate for the Prime minister (and you know: when there’s only one candidate, there’s only one choice): Giuseppe Conte
By the way, it seems that some of his curriculum entries were a bit exaggerated.
Let’s take a look into it…

  • he knows the secret of Monkey Island
  • he finished Zak McKracken without any walkthroughs
  • he defeated the Sword Master by answering “I’m the rubber, you are glue”. Twice.
  • he can hold his breath for 15 minutes.

if GDPR were invented back then…


#132

So now… Zak, you could be the next candidate for the Prime minister too!


#133

Rest of the world vs me :sob:

I read this article the other day, about Italy’s failure to qualify. It was interesting to see the different meanings that have been attributed to that event.

Are Italian politicians / the news still talking about those things now, or is there just normal coverage of the matches?


#135

Definitely this one. Thank goodness!


#136

Excerpt from that article:
“Many tragedies have befallen Italy in the last 60 years. […] The French started adding cream to carbonara.”

This is even worse than topping pizza with pineapple!!!

Well, regarding the world cup: you know, the matches were usually broadcasted by RAI TV (the national channel), but this time all the rights are of Mediaset (Berlusconi’s TVs).
So… there are always a mediatic storm, we watch some interesting match, but nothing more.
There’s no much felling in rooting for someone else team.


#137

:joy:

Just replying to you too to stop Discourse from telling me I already replied 3 times to Zak on this topic and I should involve other people too.

Oh boy, now it tells me “It looks like your link to www.nytimes.com was already posted in the topic by @tasse-tee in a reply on Jun 17, '18 – are you sure you want to post it again?”

beeeeep you, pedantic Discourse with your beeping recipe for the perfect beeping discussion


#138

I really would like to know if the developers of Discourse are using their own software - and if they do, why they are not annoyed of these annoying things …


#139

Yeah, Discourse as a system is not unreasonable, probably the best non-paged there is, but all those messages are pretty aggravating. And I don’t think I’d miss those badges either. >_>


#140

Says the guy who worked so hard to get this badge :laughing:
