Hey subby make your goddamn barcode work. ITGreen's worked just fine. If you're going to talk code about dead bar code people, then make sure your code isn't dead.

I remember when barcodes first came out some of the christian groups were claiming it was the "mark of the beast". I nearly got a barcode tat on the back of my neck, just so I could scare the hell out of them. Or would that be scare the hell into them? Yeah, I know it's supposed to be on the hand or the forehead, but I've worn an A-line cut for so many years, a barcode tat on the back of my neck christian groups (some) considered the mark of the beast would be clearly visible. Warped sense of humor = easily amused.

Something weird I noticed as a cashier; all Heinz products have a bar code that starts with 57000 (seriously, go check your fridge). There is also an embossed 57 on the neck of the bottle, it says "57 varieties" on the label, and the company's mailing address starts with PO Box 57.

Complete with inappropriate SAD tag. Dunno where subby is from, but making it to 91 is a win to be celebrated in my book.

I hope he had the decency to have a bar code tat, so the coroner don't mix up the bodies.

He'll probably have the first headstone bar coded so special scanners can be used to get the bio info instead of carving the stone.

I remember the "bullseye" grocery codes. They were manually applied to items at certain "ahead of their time" groceries before the UPC was standardized.

I had that idea a long time ago. That and having an LCD monitor embedded and hardened in the headstone so that people could look at photos of the loved one below. Then, through the clever pushing of buttons, a gag could be played - be it a photo of some corpse and a recorded scream, or some note asking for water because it sure is hot. :-) Yeah, someone else is doing it these days, but not with the humor part.

Back in NJ in the eighties they had bar codes all over, but state law made the stores put individual price stickers on everything. How long did that last?

Is anyone else here old enough to remember when the bar codes first became widespread and some people thought they were the number of the beast or something from Revelation? There's some line in there predicting no one could buy or sell without the number in their hand or on their forehead.

I thought Ack was Cathy's thing. And that Cathy Guisewite ( I can't spell her last name) had died.

No one reads or read Cathy here?

I want to biatch about a very annoying trend in newspaper headlines. They all do it, in all English speaking countries.

N. Joseph Woodland, Inventor of the Bar Code, Dies at 91

Unless he is dying as we read it then it should be Died not Dies.
