i was talking to joe and he told me a funny memory of his 2-xl and his metrics tape..
i thought it would be nice to have a thread for posting such memories, and for posting our favorite things that 2-xl says.

i don't have a specific memory that stands out from my youth, but i do remember when i realized how special a sense of humour 2-xl has; i'll try to find the clip and make an excerpt.  but basically on one of the tapes, he asks a question, a really strange question about science or something. and then even if you get it right, he explains that the answer is so illogical/strange that he simply can't bring himself to give you credit for the right answer.  hahahahahaahaha that blew my mind on so many levels.. not least of which - it made me wonder, is 2-xl secretly keeping track of how many questions+answers he's giving me credit for answering correctly? :D

nice page on 8track tape format:

by far the best part of 2xl was his sense of humour.

My 2XL memory was taking it to The Hospital when I got sick. The kids liked it and it kept them from bullying me on occasion.  :D

Incidentally for whatever reason The 2XL Simulator isn't working in Firefox or Internet Explorer. Updating to the latest Flash version hasn't solved the problem at all.  :(

It works for me in Firefox. I didn't try IE.

 :D :D :D :D

ps good memory swarlock.  at least 2xl helped you distinguish the truly stupid hopeless bullies (those that didnt like 2xl) from the ones that could possibly be redeemed (those that liked him).

Sadly one of the 2-XLs was lost during a move and the later version by Tiger Toys went the same way. I still have some of the cassette tapes though somewhere in a box.

there's usually one or two 2-xls up for auction on ebay at any given time.
