Back in Black

1. Back in Black
Here's an interesting story about how a Marvel Comic reader, Randy Schueller, through a contest with a relatively small prize, wrote the basic story which led to the popular black suit which was a main dramtic component of the Spider-man comics for many years and features heavily in the new, blockbuster movie. Schueller doesn't seem very bitter about the situation, but I can't help but feel these are reletively poor business ethics, from a company making millions on stories mainly about the ethics of heroism.

Use your mouse to create a masterpiece and then send it on for someone else to enjoy. In return, you will recieve a drawing as well. When you see how good the picture you recieve is, you'll be ashamed of the half-assed attempt you made.

After his run-in with the lawyers of Bill Cosby because of his Channel 101 series, the House of Cosbys, Jusin Roiland is apparently back at it with his new show on VH1's Acceptable TV. By the way, does anyone watch this show? Admittedly, I don't watch a lot of VH1, but I don't think I've seen a single ad for it anywhere on television.

Hand, Hand, Finger, Thumb

4. Hand, Hand, Finger, Thumb
A tattoo that is incredibly awesome and yet somewhat repulsive at the same time.

Add three numbers for a sum in a multiple of ten before too many numbers reach the bottom of your screen, and turn your volume down because the sound effects are high pitched and overly loud.

I was gonna ask if that was an amputee, but "stump" is much more satisfying.

It's the punctuation which elevates it.
