Over its existence, the show has changed very little from season to season.[62] Most modifications to the program have been done in minute detail, such as to the show's book shelf display seen near the courtroom entrance. Aesthetically, the show's theme song, graphics, and color scheme are the only aspects that have changed repeatedly over its past seventeen years.[63] The ninth season (2004–05) is one of few seasons in which the show underwent major remodeling when music for the show's opening, closing, and to/fro commercial portions were modified. A jazzed version of a melody from Beethoven's 5th Symphony was adopted as the show's then new opening theme song.[64] For its scenes, Sheindlin is shown in a different courtroom from her own (part of a proposed renovation to the courtroom that was rejected by Sheindlin for being too dark), approaching the camera, followed by folding her arms and smiling at the camera. This is followed by showing various scenes of her presiding over different cases. As part of these modifications, the show's introductory previews, graphics, and images all began showing up in falu red.
Prior to the ninth season, the show used an original tune for its theme song. From the show's debut through its eighth season, various versions of this original tune were used, the show making moderate modifications to the tune every few seasons. From seasons four through eight, the opening music video commenced with an approaching scene towards a computer animated courthouse display up until that scene entered into the courthouse. From there, several shots of Sheindlin gesticulating from her bench—as though presiding over various cases—were displayed in motion. These motioning images eventually developed into the courthouse logo that represents the program (the logo always displayed within the letter "D" in "Judy") by the end of this opening music video. The music video in seasons prior to this used relatively similar music with disparities in scenes, images, instrumental sound type and theme song length.
Further, early seasons of the show used graphics and images that were sea green and saffron. Blue and saffron then came to represent multiple seasons of the show before the show's current color scheme. By the show's sixth season (2001–02), music and graphics used in the introductory previews no longer resembled the rest of the program as they had previously, but instead used a high blue color scheme and a different song for each episode/intro preview. While the introductory preview's inconstant tunes have continued to the present season, the color scheme in the introductory previews began resembling the color scheme used in the rest of the program (falu red) once again by the ninth season.
Each opening music video consists of Voice-Over Artist Jerry Bishop stating: "You are about to enter the courtroom of Judge Judith Sheindlin. The people are real. The cases are real. The rulings are final. This is Judge Judy."[65] Originally between the statements "The rulings are final" and "This is Judge Judy" was the statement, "This is her courtroom."[66] This was removed in 2004. Beginning in September 2012, the show made a switch to high definition with its 17th season. The bumpers between commercials are also in HD, although most on-screen graphics such as plaintiff and defendant descriptions are framed to fit a 4:3 aspect ratio.[67]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sims_Carnival

An Online Community of Crowd-Sourced Web Games[edit]

SimsCarnival.com was an online community centered around playing, creating and sharing games.
It had a massive library of Flash games (rumor: 70K+ games). This online community was supported by a suite of game creation tools, audio & graphic asset packs, a YouTube-style website with leaderboard and other social features, plenty of first-party games, ongoing content releases, community support, and countless user-generated games across many genres (e.g. sports, puzzles, adventure games, racing games, Tower Defense games, Angry Birds games).
Three game creation tools—The Wizard, The Swapper and The Game Creator—were your assistants in game design. The Wizard led you through the process of creating a game step-by-step with intuitive options designed to help you create your own game (e.g. make your own Tower Defense game) with an impressive library of game genres to choose from. The Swapper let you customize existing games – or newly made games from The Wizard - with your own selection of images, so personalizing a game was pretty straightforward. With The Game Creator, and its library of images, animations and sounds, people could create a game from scratch or dove deep into customizing another player's creation.
The mission of SimsCarnival.com was to democratize the art of game creation. It was fully intended to be a game about making games. Because the games were "open source", players could take someone else's creation, give the original creators attributions and customize the games as they see fit (e.g. apply different graphics and story line).
SimsCarnival.com was debuted at the GDC (Game Developers Conference) in February 2008 with a keynote speech by the studio head of The Sims. The service was sunset in January 2011.
Highlights in the Press:
1UP: “…I actually think that The Sims Carnival -- a site where users can create and play their own minigames -- is one of EA's most intriguing ideas yet…” [1]
Joystiq: "…you can play some of the offerings from closed beta folks, who've come up with some really bizarre entries like this terrible take on Mario Kart and this brûlée caramelizing Sim. You can also design your own games for the general populace to partake of, enjoy and never, ever pay you for." [2]
Kotaku: "EA’s web-based game creation TheSimsCarnival.com has officially entered open beta, and not a moment too soon!" [3]
IGN: "There is bound to be a game that you love -- and if not, you can make it! Since its inception in February 2008, SimsCarnival.com has built an active online community where nearly 1 in 4 visitors during Closed Beta have created and published their own games." [4]
MTV: "But Electronic Arts thinks it has a solution with Sims Carnival. You needn’t know a programming language; just apply your creativity to their already-built toolsets. Currently in beta, I hopped on the Sims Carnival website to see what people have created." [5]
Gameplanet: "TheSimsCarnival.com in open beta. This games destination website has hundreds of games of all kinds and creators are adding more every day" [6]
PC Magazine: "The tools provided at the site empower players to become game creators at any programming skill level, from novice to Flash developers."

Something Awful is a comedy website and forums. People have to pay money to join the forums to talk with other people around the world. It currently costs $9.95 (US Dollars) to join. You must be very polite on these forums, because the people are sensitive. They say that paying money makes people behave more politely, because if you don't behave nice they take away your account and you lose your money.[1]

Also brought to the forefront of pop culture by this song is a generally accepted white standard of beauty — a skinny body lacking in voluptuous curves[citation needed]. In the prelude that opens the song there is a conversation between two (presumably) thin, white valley girls, where one girl remarks to her friend, "Oh, my God, Becky, look at her butt! It is so big [...] She's just so ... black!", to which Sir Mix-a-Lot, representing the African-American subculture's view, says: "You other brothers can't deny" and "Take the average black man and ask him...".[5] However, Sir Mix-a-Lot follows this in later verse with "Even white boys got to shout," indicating that it is not only African-American men who are attracted to curvy women (an aspect which was referenced in an extensive retrospective two decades later).[6]

the point of iodine tablets it to saturate your thyroid with non-radioactive iodine so that it doesn't absorb the radioactive iodine isotopes that get released in a nuclear disaster.

speaking of which:

quote:


An unopened box of potassium iodate tablets, distributed to every household in Ireland in the wake of 9/11 in case of a terror attack on reprocessing plants such as Sellafield and nuclear power stations such as Wylfa on the island of Great Britain. A scenario that upon later expert Irish examination in 2007, was found to not have justified their distribution.[83][84] The Irish Department of Health advises that the tablets may now be disposed of with municipal waste.[84]
