Blast From The Past: The Story of The Oregon Trail


A list of things MHG loved about The Oregon Trail:
  • Choosing to be a "Banker" to get extra money at the start of the game.
  • Deciding to leave Kansas in March only to be surprised when it snowed.
  • Naming party members after your school friends and/or classroom crush.
  • Setting a "grueling" pace and "bare bones" rations to conserve resources.
  • Spending most of your money on ammunition and most of your days hunting.
  • Passing a tombstone that contained swear words.
  • Killing 1800 pounds worth of buffalo only to carry 100 pounds back to the wagon.
  • Learning that one of your party members had died of Dysentery.
  • Deciding to "ford" or "caulk the wagon and float it across" at every single river crossing. Why pay the Indian guide a few dollars when chancing it is so much fun?
  • Realizing it's October and you're not even to Independence Rock.
  • Reaching the Columbia River and floating the wagon on a raft, steering it down the river while avoiding rocks.
Please add to the list in the comments section. We'll post some good ones on the main page.

City Pages Minneapolis has a great story on the development history of this amazing game here. Thanks to Jessica Lussenhop for bringing back some good memories. For some good nostalgia, take The Oregon Trail quiz here.

Memories of the Old Transbay Terminal

The website of the new Transbay Transit Center is calling for submission of memories of the old Transbay Terminal. MHG, over the last four years, has accumulated many and agreed to submit a memory for old times sake. Here is what we said:

Good morning,

Every day, when I entered the old Transbay building through its South entrance, I had to step over a puddle of urine (yes, urine!). Some days there was a "wet floor" sign that a worker had lazily placed next to the puddle (not mopped up). Most days, it was just there. Every day, I thought to myself - "Taxpaying citizens of the developed world deserve better". Here's a formal request - take pride in the new building and make sure that employees, tenants, visitors, and the general public do the same. Please let this memory die with the disgrace that was the old Transbay building.


Thank you,


MHG


Submit your own memory to memories@transbaycenter.org. Learn about the new terminal here: http://transbaycenter.org.

Blast From The Past: An Email To Gomes

Lesson in dealing with Gomes: BE FIRM

Dear Gomes,

I have tried many times to hint nicely. I am tired of being nice so here it is...If you don't do exactly what I say, I will not want to be your roommate any more. When this happens, I will start to routinely drop upper-deckers in your bathroom. I will shave Tim's head and hide all of the hair in small bundles around your room, in your pillow, in your shower loofah, in your printer mechanism, inside your down comforter (for extra insulation), in your monster cable lines, in the CD drive of your Mac mini, and in your gym bag. I will install a doggie door to your room so LOL can come and go as she pleases. I will scratch your face off of all of the pictures in our apartment. I will delete all of your Cops on DVR. I will delete all of your Family Guy's on DVR. I will no longer patronize your shipping center. I will siphon and subsequently steal gas from your car when you bring it home. I will eat all of your fake meat product. I will consume all of your Vapor, NOS, Protein, and other supplements in one giant shake and kill you in a testosterone-anabolic-fueled rage. After I kill you, I will cut you up into small pieces. Then I will convert the kegerator into a freezer and store those small pieces in the new freezer-kegerator. I will then serve LOL a piece of you every time she comes over to play. With that in mind, I suggest you listen up.
