I don't like to bash web sites but...  scrolling up or down on this is pure motion sickness -- ugh!

Yes like all those flash website we both remember, another example of "hay we can do this" without thinking "but should we do this" ... Then again they jump off mountains so perhaps its aimed at a different target demographic?

I hope you're joking, Szalam

Yeah.  The crowd with too many brain concussions.

I'm not joking. I think it's really fun. I suspect I'm more in their target demographic though.

OK.   Cheesy graphics & all else aside, there's one positive thing (if you can call it that):  The scrolling mess does not work on mobile devices .

I agree with you. I think the site works. It's a creative way to navigate, and it targets a demographic that is looking for exciting motion-based activity.

On the contrary.  I think The Fourth Phase is really great.  That's the difference between pros and amateurs.

OH MY GOSH! It's got a page counter and email gif at the bottom of the page! It's like Geocities is back!

I thought, perhaps, it was just a really old site, but they have stuff on there from 2015!

We eat in this restaurant sometimes, and I mentioned the 1980s design one day when we got carryout. The owner is quite proud of it and does not want to change it!

You've got to love the "Under Construction" graphics on their Coupons page.

I hope their duck is more appealing than their web site .

Yeah, I tried to convince him that it needs updating. Now I just use it as an example in classes!

Woah there.  You should give us a warning before showing images like that.  How could a person fail to see how wrong that is?

Let's hope young kids don't empty the grocery bags and that this isn't stored in the same place as soda.

In keeping with your windshield cleaner, I think these dishwasher tablets look way too much like candy.

I love companies that have frills on their website... they have sites with the widget they asked for... the fact that users can't get this site to work isn't a major issue
