I saw a similar situation, but in reverse, on social media recently.
Man gets arrested. Mans picture shows up in the local mug shots along side everyone else who gets arrested, just like they always do. No detes other than regular arrest info, as is standard. Man goes on rant because his warrant was over a civil incident (bill) he was unaware of. People had sent summons to wrong address.
Man says that the paper made him out to be a normal criminal by not including details to show how minimal his crime was when posting his mug shot (which they never do, that is a rediculous ask).
What happened was a very normal experience with no context added at all. He assumed the context people would attach to it, and then blamed the paper. They were just operating as normal with no malice at all.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
beer is good, not sure I'd be into bending down to lick it off the pavement though.
could spear a few good bratwurst though, cooking them would kill the germans
(then again I briefly thought coffee, but soon remembered that German coffee is utter crap [only done worse by the frogs].)
Note: for the unwary: when in Germany buy a strudel then cross the border into Holland for a coffee.
Actually, that's kind of awesome!
That's exactly how everyone's website looked in the late 90's and early 2000's.
The only thing I'm missing is snow falling in the background and a theme music in (what I think was) an 8-bit midi file
Another great web page design: arngren.net[^] (the text is in Norwegian, but you don't need to understand it to enjoy the design).
For being exact: It isn't a web page design. They had exactly the same design in the mail order days, 30+ years ago, when they distributed printed catalogs to every mailbox in the country every two weeks. Also known from the mail order days: Note that practically all prices end in ...99 or ..998.
Maybe that extreme-ugly design is part of the marketing strategy. The web page comes up in every ranking of ugly-looking pages, and everyone (in Norway) wants to see it ... and then they see some product that they will buy. It works, after 30+ years with the same design.
