    Composite images for female faces from around the world.

    The composites are all surprisingly (or perhaps unsurprisingly?) hot.

    Some are a little "video gamey" in their proportions, or made up as though the most appealing face was being created through committee.

    many of the composite faces are quite attractive

    I wonder if the tech used (or just the averaging of X many faces) tends to lend to greater symmetry or something than the median face

    yes

    averaging features tends to produce greater symmetry and a more standardised distribution of things like TEETH and EYEBALLS

    P.S. I suck at snowboarding

    Everyone does, until they don't. I swear I could barely stand up on a snowboard, and then I went to the mountain one time and just started shredding and jumping off shit and not killing myself. I think it's a mental thing really, you have to believe you're capable of not killing yourself.

    Indeed

    I haven't gone out in Two years and two years ago I only went out twice. Ooof.

    I'm slowly getting my legs back under me but I'm so scrub tier

    If snowboarding were metal, I'd have just discovered Metallica yesterday

    If the mountain were a lane, I'd be feeding

    If snow were a meme, I'd be posting a Rebecca Black "Friday" gif two months from now

Some needed your SoundBlaster on a particular IRQ, others wanted it on another. Some would only allow the mouse to work under really specific settings.

    We've got ourselves a PC-clone era oldtimer, spool. We'll take that. All are welcome.

    As long as he remembers that sound goes in autoexec.bat, and ATAPI goes in config.sys, he's all right by me.

    Back in School, I replaced the bootdisks in the computer labs with autoexec.bat files that ended began with

    You haven't lived until you scripted a bootloader in your config.sys file to run the appropriate drivers and autoexec.bat commands so that when you needed a high EMS game you had HIMEM running that way, but when you needed XMS and the CD-ROM...

    Is it just freestyle wrestling that is being dropped, or is Greco-Roman going as well?

    Well, I sure don't. I just think it's kind of funny that the one of the few sports that really hearkens back to the grand Greek myth of good ol' well-meaning amateur athletes wanting to do athletic shit together is getting the ax so we can add rollerblading or whatever it is they'll be adding now.

    Is there even much of an amateur scene in wrestling?

    It never occurred to me that it might be something that people did for fun. Like, I know plenty of people who box or do some kind of martial arts or whatever, I've just never encountered amateur wrestling as a thing.

    I think that's definitely part of it. We all have somewhat symmetrical faces but when you put a bunch together everything evens up much more.

    Me too, but everyone thought I was weird and eventually two security officers made me get off the mountain with my paper shredder. I told them I had work to do but they were having none of it. Also, I still can't snowboard.

    i think the high end bundle NES was like $250. we got that one (suck it!) it came with ROB, a light gun, gyromite, mario, duck hunt, and 2 controllers

    they also had the one that just had mario and that was like $200. it made economic sense to just buy the big bundle!
