Re: On current events... (Hot button topic - Kavanaugh Confirmations)

Couple of things before I leave the forum. 1) I don't particularly think it was appropriate to start this topic in the first place. The topic is a highly politicized case involving a very ugly topic which needs to be taken seriously instead of sensationally. This is a person's life being dramaticall...

Re: Bad Jokes II

A young pig tried to become a witch by donning an appropriate hat. Unfortunately, it didn't work. All it did was make her a Ham Sham-Witch.

Re: Schtupid Email Scams

Yea, this was in the 90's, so it would probably be more like 25ish years ago.

I'd also suggest Laputa: Castle in the Sky. It was the first Miyazaki offering I encountered. I purchased a copy (it was certainly a bootleg, I know better now, but early-teens me didn't) at a convention I was working at. Heh.

I almost wonder if my drive has gone dead sometimes because it doesn't make that noise, because I grew up with it. Then aga...

In Bob Asprin's Phule's Company (the beginning of the series), Phule is an ultra-wealthy individual, probably one of the top dozen or so most wealthy individuals in a multi-system galactic civilization. He has a device he calls a 'port-a-brain' which can be used to remotely do research and contact c...

WOW! I just found out that GoComics is hosting the whole (?) run of Peanuts comics from the start! (I have to admit, it's amusing to see the date below the first comic, seeing as it's much, much older than the internet, let alone the GoComics site...) My favorite tribute... https://i.pinimg.com/736...

Speaking of the actual Gulf of Mexico and tropical storms, there's some TD over the Yucatan Peninsula right now. Not really expected to form up into anything serious, but should dump rain all over the coast.
