Created by Kenneth MacCabe on August 24, 1995, this stack is simply a short movie about Barney dying I guess. The intended user seems to be anyone who stumbles upon it or wants to be amused by a short series of images. There is quite simply no purpose this stack other than mindless creative entertainment. It works by using a small dragging screen in the bottom left corner and you move the visual frame around the screen to view the 'quit' or 'view short movie option at the bottom'. When you click on the 'view' button, there is an animated gun pointed at Barney and it shoots a bullet and kills him dead. That is is. I would say that I would recommend that others check out this stack only because it is simple to use and short lived, but you would not be missing out if you chose not to explore !!!BARNEY DIES!!

This stack is titled “!!!BARNEY DIES!!!” and it was written by Kenneth MacCabe on August 24th, 1995. I think this was some sort of inside joke and was intended to be seen by friends. I was on a zoom call while I was messing around with this and I sent it to my friends. We all got on the topic about how at some point in our childhood it was a common trend to hate Barney and wish death upon him. We started singing the songs we knew (Joy to the world Barney is dead, I hate you, you hate me, let's get together and kill Barney) and I feel like this video is an example of this trend. To run this stack, you have to click on “See the short movie” and it shows a gun shooting Barney and him being killed. I concur with hh4vw, this was not what I would expect to be on here but I am glad it shows the weird humor the internet had in the past.

This stack is titled “!!!BARNEY DIES!!!” and it was written by Kenneth MacCabe on August 24th, 1995. I believe the intended user is for Kenneth’s friends and the purpose of the stack is most likely to make his friends laugh or it was Kenneth’s first experience with HyperCard. For this stack all you have to do is click “See the short movie” and it shows a revolver shooting Barney and him falling down. Although it was definitely not something I expected to see when I began this side quest, it was still interesting in helping understand just how much freedom there is and was on the internet. Purely for the sake of the violence, I would not recommend that others check it out.
