The Adventures of Dr. McNinja, a doctor who is also a ninja... or possibly a ninja who is also a doctor. Alltogether it's my kind of comic, plus it resolves the ages-old pirate/ninja rivalry in a neatly ass-kicking way.

Yet another plug for The Straight Dope in general, but I'm not linking for the sake of the question (why do we use the word Geronimo as we do), it's for the following quote:

"The other day a guy asks me why I love the Internet. Two reasons, I told him. First, you can come up with the definitive answer to seemingly inscrutable questions like this one in three days max. Second, the BS answers from the goofballs in the newsgroups are a riot."

So true, so true...

According to this page, this Walt Disney Home Video vanity plate is scary. I'm just not seeing it. Opinions?

Yeah, yeah, I know that Starfleet Academy novels are teriary canon (if that), but it still tickles me that Zephram Cochrane is Minnesotan in at least one Trek universe.

Looks kinda like Mickey is powering up or mutating or growing . . . for what reason?? I think it would be scary in a confusing way. Kinda like clowns might be scary to a child.

I actually have Disney videotapes with that thing on it, and it never struck me as scary. The music is a little annoying, but not scary. If anything I'm impressed with the idea that it's horribly tacky. After all, excessive use of neon was a seventies thing, right?

A flash movie based on a song by Tom Lehrer called Poisoning Pigeons in the Park. I was happy to find this, being a longtime fan of The Elements Song.

"Poisoning Pigeons in the Park" has, for more than 35 years, been one of the few things which is capable of making me smile at any time upon hearing it, no matter what else happens to be going on at the moment.

The World is coming to a messy and unpleasant end? Put this on, and it'll brighten up your whole day.

No, it's one of several I've seen. I don't think any of them have quite managed to capture the spirit of the song.

If I had any doubts about Ocarina of Time being the greatest game ever, they've now been shattered. After almost ten years of playing the game, there are still things I've never seen. I'd never seen this before. That's right, one of the good guys dies ON SCREEN in a Zelda game (besides the Great Deku Tree, of course)! This gaming classic still has secrets to reveal, even without hacking in!

If I ever refive OOT, I'll be sure to include this scene.

For those of you who want to know what Sinterklaas is (Though it might be even funnier if you're actually Dutch):

I can't seem to play it myself, but I'm pretty sure it's the right video.

Yes. Smiting was originally my chat weapon, but I use it in the forums too. Crushing is the one that keeps changing hands aboard the NX-01; the name is a tribute to the late, lamented webcomic Pentasmal. I'd link you to an example, but alas, the comic archives remain behind Keenspot's subscription wall.

Well, whatever the "rule" is, I prefer Smiting for all purposes.
