Bizarre thought #574: In the building where I work, there’s a security guard who is sometimes seen wandering about the place. He looks kind of top-heavy, like he’s got a lot of upper-body muscle.
For some reason it reminds me of an old video game I once had back on my Commodore 64: Ultima II, which had fighters who looked like that. When I wrote the Ultima clone in high school, I used a similar design.

Yeah, I’m like that. One gets over it.
I played that game on my Atari 130XE… tears came to my eyes…:~)
Pretty sure they used almost the same sprite for the guards in U3 and U4, even!
Are you sure?
General Motors didn’t make Commodores in ’64. Maybe it was a Premier or a Special?
To me, “Commodore” will always be a computer, not a car.
Do you think upper body musculature is proportionate to intelligence level? ;-)
U3? U4? Does this mean that Bono is actually an old fan of RPGs?
