    Quoted from pacmanretro:

    He did mention getting the forklift attachment

    It's going to hurt when he mounts that plaque on it. But hell I wish mine was big enough for it's own plaque

    Quoted from edward472:

    It's going to hurt when he mounts that plaque on it

    Specially if he uses a 6" spike.

    might be the most begrudging and painful upvote I have ever given

    I came for the upvote.

    #3763 40 days ago

    Not that these awards mean anything (maybe to them) but do you think they voted for themselves more than once? Happy Friday!

    Girls night out? I saw the outside of that place at night. No way my wife and her friends would go there.

    And do the people of Lancaster county know what a museum is?

    #3766 40 days ago
    Quoted from edward472:

    It was probably a close race for the top hands on museum....between them and the massage parlor

    At least at the massage parlor someone else handles your joystick

    Quoted from captainadam_21:

    I agree. While you can't change genetics, something can be done about the beard and hair. We are living in a covid world. The appearance of bad hygiene is not good for business

    Bad Hygiene? Hell he’s a shopping cart and a full hefty bag away from looking homeless.

    #3769 40 days ago

    I drive by 2 days a week going in to work and not an attraction for me to drop by.

    Have you ever had to stop or swerve for a tumbleweed?

    #3771 40 days ago
    Quoted from 1974DeltaQueen:

    Have you ever had to stop or swerve for a tumbleweed?

    Sometimes. It usually lasts just a few minutes when an escalara crosses 222.

    What are the legal and/or tax implications of calling your business a 'museum?'

    #3773 40 days ago
    Quoted from NightOwl:

    What are the legal and/or tax implications of calling your business a 'museum?'

    Doesn't matter what you call it. Unless it's registered as a non profit. It's a business.

    LTG : )

    #3774 40 days ago

    Do they have tour guides to walk you through the exhibits?

    Or do you have to go around yourself, pushing the little buttons?

    #3775 40 days ago
    Quoted from pacmanretro:

    Or do you have to go around yourself, pushing the little buttons?

    I think most just take a pee and then find the exit door.

    #3776 40 days ago

    Lancaster country has over 500k in population. It has to have a better museum. They had to have rigged that vote

    #3777 40 days ago
    Quoted from pacmanretro:

    After seeing the propieter and the inside images I wouldn’t touch any button, door knob. Toilet handle without a UV scan for bacteria and viruses.

    Does that require the purchase of an all day pass?

    Quoted from LTG:

    LTG : )

    In NY, there are certain criteria that needs to be met before an organization can to use the word museum in their name. There's a whole list of restricted words like that (like college, university, conservatory, etc). I'm not sure what the rules are in PA.

    #3780 40 days ago
    Quoted from pacmanretro:

    Does that require the purchase of an all day pass?

    Yes, plus a nickel unless you’re willing to crawl under.

    #3781 40 days ago

    Must have been mail in ballets.

    #3782 40 days ago

    Its not even on Retirement Living's list, not even to take your grandkids to, but the Cloister is. Yippie!

    I call bullshit.
    No award for best sweatpants?

    #3784 39 days ago
    Quoted from Coindork:

    I call bullshit.
    No award for best sweatpants?

    Probably best exhibit there, hands down.

    #3785 39 days ago

    Best Attraction, Best place for a casual date, Best place for a girls night out, Best museum. Holy Cow.

    Must have missed the award for best clean toilets. Seems to be the only category they didn't get an award for.

    #3786 39 days ago

    Being a local, I can assure you that "best of" thing is rigged. Its put on by the local newspaper. You don't get your name on the ballot unless you advertise in the paper, but there are write-in spots. You can very easily stuff the box if you sit around all night filling them out when you have no customers. Thats probably every day/night at Gameseum.

    #3787 39 days ago

    That would be Best box stuffer.

    #3789 39 days ago

    Checked out the link. They actually have some neat REAL attractions.

    14
    #3790 39 days ago

    We have some wonderful museums here.

    Railroad Museum of PA/Strasburg Railroad (very good)
    Landis Valley Museum (Colonial)
    Historic Ephrata Cloister (Quakers)
    North Museum (science)
    National Watch and Clock museum
    James Buchanan's Wheatland estate (worst president ever was from Lancaster!)
    Julius Sturgis Pretzel museum
    Demuth Museum

    That is off the top of my head, and im sure I missed some.

    There are other great attractions like Central Market downtown and numerous historical sites in the city. And our prison in town looks like a castle!

    Gameseum doesn't hold a candle to any of these.

    Quoted from NoQuarters:

    There may be a reason they didn't win that award.

    That's where I was going ... no pun intended, well maybe that's a pun...

    #3793 39 days ago

    Extremely weird. “Full of players”. Yeah, right.

    Quoted from Electrocute:

    I never thought of using a different location's picture to advertise mine. From the video fad era, 40 years difference. Every place was packed back then.

    Not to mention after closing ? That player a burglar ?

    LTG : )

    #3795 39 days ago
    Quoted from Electrocute:

    [quoted image]

    Wait, I don't remember arcades having games that close together back then. They were always spaced out to maximize space so players could walk about freely without crowding each other.

    He is such a tool.

    #3796 39 days ago

    No - he breaks tools.

    I can remember an arcade in Atlanta. It was packed. Had at least two rows of Pac Man machines. 40(maybe more). Circa 1981-1982. Everyone knew the pattern.

    Quoted from dontfeed:

    1979 to 1981 during the video fad, yes they were.

    Quoted from dontfeed:

    They were always spaced out to maximize space so players could walk about freely without crowding each other.

    You'd need a lot of unused space to think like that. Back then you'd stuff more games in.

    LTG : )

    Quoted from Electrocute:

    Extremely weird. “Full of players”. Yeah, right.
    [quoted image]

    I think the top pic was probably taken with what they thought was almost no players too.

    Seriously, I don't get WTF he is trying to point out...that there are two pictures of a row of arcade games? That they should both be color photos? Or that the top photo is backwards; like the other's business practices, maybe?

    #3800 38 days ago

    No sweatpants in the old photo. Shorts, athletic socks, sneakers and groomed hair. And customers. Different era in the arcade for sure.
