We need to incorporate that into a fiver. "That's no idle joke..."

This is very late and it's on a weird site, but it's the best commentary on Michael Richards' self-destruction I've read so far. Like I did, this guy found it more baffling than offensive, and his comments make a little sense out of it.

Well, I'm glad someone sees the big picture. Destroying humanity is kid stuff; destroying the actual planet Earth is hard. Ankin Rotor would be proud.

My first smile was that he immediately nominated the Western Hemisphere (probably specifically because of the good ol' USA) to be transformed into antimatter.

On waiting for probability to spontaneously destroy the Earth:
"Note: the odds against this actually ever occuring are considerably greater than a googolplex (1010100) to one. Failing this, some kind of arcane (read: scientifically laughable) probability-manipulation device may be employed."
Hey, my name used to be Infinite Improbability, I had to enjoy this one. Don't they know all you need is a Bambleweeny 57 Sub-Meson Brain, an atomic vector plotter, and a nice hot cup of tea?

Think MST in written form. I just found it. Good stuff.

This is how Sonic learned to run so fast. Probably why he's blue, too.

DBZ fans will wince at this one. We all know FUNimation got pretty ridiculous in censoring the anime, but seeing it all in one place will still leave you reeling. (For more, this page on my favourite DBZ site covers the really big differences in detail -- including the infamous HFI L, which you must read about if you haven't already, DBZ fan or not.)

Well, I have an only DBZ site. I have no idea whether the others I used to visit are still around, I just know this one's good. My favourite back in the day, of course, was the one where you could read all the manga for free. I was one of that site's last customers before it got the inevitable cease-and-desist.

DBZ was a part of my youth, and I have affection for it, despite all the goofiness. Till the day I die I'll be able to tell you all the Z Fighters' signature moves. It's like many people my age and Power Rangers, or (educated guess here, let me know if I'm wrong) you and Transformers. I'll never get into those series now -- I wasn't on the ground floor. Only a kid can get past the silly stuff.

I was a big fan of both Power Rangers (and ALL of those Saban knockoffs) and Transformers. Ah, good times. The days when the mental circuits responsible for artistic taste aren't fully formed yet.

For that matter, I'm old enough to have been a He-Man fan! Looking back, I wonder why. "Microscopic childish brain" comes to mind.

Brian Clevinger has endorsed PC Gamer's Galactic Civilizations II blogger for president. And really, could Rudy or Hillary run a space empire with quite the same charming ineptness... let alone get away with naming anything You Are All So Boned?

Here's a little snapshot of this guy's GCII experience:

"I attacked. The planet turned into a ship. The ship destroyed my ship. The ship turned back into a planet."

I almost bought that last week, but went with Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds instead. Needless to say RSI is bothering me once more.

Hilarious flash movie of the Frasier cast portraying the Voyager cast. Probably a SNL skit or the like.

Things like that make me wish I had broadband NOW and not in 20 FRIGGING DAYS. Well I'll get back to you in an hour or so when that has actually loaded.

Ha! That was great, especially the whole Niles/Daphne joke.

And look, it DID take an hour to download.

And I'll actually add a link: The Book of Biff (I've linked to the first comic for convenience. Anyone who looks and the ads on Bob and George has probably already seen this.)

It's a little-known fact that elephant-proof does not imply cow-proof.

From the same author: hey there, blimpy boy, flying through the sky so fancy-free...

I miss the days when Straight Dope's boards weren't subscription-only.
