Doubt for dessert

The other day I spent the best $50 I've ever spent in my life on the COMPLETE National Geographic on CDROM. It has every single issue up until like now, thus it has every issue from the 50s, 60s, 70s, the 40s, the 1800s... it is incredible, I can't even describe how incredible. You click on a year, then you click on a Month of the year and you can read that issue cover to cover, everything including ads and images and articles and you can zoom in and it is just the best thing ever. It also will severely damage my social skills but whatever I don't care because I can live in National Geographic. SO for your enjoyment and mine here are some images I've been collecting from it. BON APPETITE.

    1. I got it from the Post Office! It was on sale too, it used to be like 80 bucks. It is worth every cent. I reckon you could find one pretty easily online if not in a post office!!!! It is actually the most amazing thing ever omg.xxxx

  4. So very jealous! I just got a couple of issues today, in fact some of those pictures are from them, July 1966.
    Living in National Geographic, that sounds like a good idea!

    1. It's okay the print ones are way better, obviously - 'real life vs the computer' real life always wins!!! But this is great for information all compacted, and it's a quicker way to trawl through them. My stack of real life ones is over half my body height. It's becoming a real prob! haha xx
