You can't crash your browser with Javascript? I'm slowly finding it necessary.

Amiga: (noun) The most technologically advanced computer that hardly anyone
cares about.
Use in sentence: "I wanted to buy an Amiga for its low price and great color

Macintosh and got only half the graphics capability of an Amiga."
