I quite like choosing random numbered attachments to look at, it really is interesting and can be quite funny. Now suppose the entire ended and all that remained was MR attachment archive what would the "aliens" think of the human race.

If you are doing this you may come across some random files that download to you computer, for example I found one which is a powerpoint presentation titled

Yours is a Very Bad Hotel
A graphic complaint prepared for:
Joseph Crosby
General Manager
Lisa Rinker
Front Desk Manager
DoubleTree Club Hotel
2828 Southwest Freeway
Houston, Texas

Below are a couple of the random selection (deliberately posted this way so you can easily read the thread comments rather than see just the picture)


View attachment 964
View attachment 9
View attachment 15565
View attachment 12574
View attachment 1028
View attachment 965


Obviously I have left out any screenshots and selectively picked from the random set. But it is really interesting charting of Human/MR/Apple history.

http://att.macrumors.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=9999 <- god please don't let that be a representation!

http://att.macrumors.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=666 <- fitting

http://att.macrumors.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=12345 <- WordMonger's avatar (IIRC)

ooooh, a forbidden one! http://att.macrumors.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=11111

(not sure how you're supposed to read the thread comments from just the attachment ID though)

I meant the comments in this thread, I like the idea of the pictures out of context.

I think i remember that post. Some people go to way too much trouble to complain...
So how do you browse these attachments? I don't think I've been in the archive before.

They would probably think that Steve Jobs is the greatest person ever and that some Mac vs. PC war erupted ending the world.
