I've been an observer for years, but the one I caught the tail end of was Uncle_Meat. In my opinion, it was the best. Here's why:
That photoshopped pic was in the infancy for so many things - the fact that no one knew what photoshop was (unless you were in that line of business), the fact that the internet was only for nerds and that no reasonable person knew how pictures spread, the fact that there was no Myspace or Facebook or anything...think about it. Everyone in real life had to believe it was real. Why? Because it was a DAMNED good photoshop!!!
We are sorry but we have had a crash in our system therefor all pictures all lost, we are so sorry.
We apologize for this and hope that you will have understanding for this. We have improved pour system since the last crash and it is much more stable now.
It's true, but not in the presentation. Basically, some hoodrat of any age walks around, saying "Smoke? Smoke? Smoke?" over and over. If you lock eyes, he'll take one step towards you hesitantly waiting for you to walk forward, or do the "no-thanks" motion to your neck with your hand. He usually walks away at that point.
As a tourist, it's tricky, because you're really just wondering WTF a guy is doing walking around saying that over and over, and he thinks he's about to make a sale.
