Look at this screenshot and tell me what's so peculiar in it?



On Tuesday 28 April 12pm I will draw a Jabra Bluetooth headset to one of the people with the correct answer here.

1965 (friends) - Germany invaded Poland (again), which syncs with the quote...
(note: This is in Harry Turtledove's Colonization series)

The war connection between the "You invaded Poland" quote and the fact that you posted this on ANZAC day?

John Cleese is tall. So is Tony.

Tony admits to liking holdens, but then everyone has something to be shameful of.

Jack Tramiel, who founded Commodore, turned it into a Calculator and Computer company in 1965, with financier Irving Gould (bad man). Jack was polish and survived the concentration camps.

Which is far too obscure to relevant here, except for Tony's commentary on the Commodore SX-64 (a luggable from 1983).

But I quite like this game....

Ok.  That's pretty obscure.  But the SX-64 was a cool piece of hardware.  I got mine painted black...
