It's like a portable Zatanna-translator



‫‬‭‮‪‫‬It looks like a strange sun symbol, but... Copy the character above, and when you paste it, everything you type after that is written backwards! Try it.

Wild, right?

Reminds me of Zatanna from DC Comics. (She has to speak backwards to get her spells to work.)

4 Generations

Most times I'm online, I'm browsing/looking at the usual crap... checking e-mail, some video somebody posted of someone else doing something stupid, reading some of the day's news, maybe some photoshopped images, reading some anonymous person's blog postings, looking at some URL I saw printed somewhere, reading upcoming comic book news, all in all... stuff that doesn't "do" anything. I think of it as the usual "buzz" about the internet.

But tonight I saw this video, "4 Generations", and it touched me. It made me realize feel, for a second, how difficult someone else's daily life can be. And for that, I'm thankful.

It's a video by a violinist named Robert Thompson (his website), who, while traveling through China, decided to give a water buffalo as a gift to a family. The buffalo "only" cost him about $250 (US dollars), but to that family... it meant so much more.

$250 won't change my life, but it and, and did, change 4 other people's lives. Oh, and their story is sad as well.

Please watch it. It's nice. And touching.

*Note to self: Try to do something like this at least once in your life. For real.

This is a "red band" version of a trailer to the upcoming "Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem" movie. It's age-restricted so you know it's going to be wild.

Prepare to be shocked.

Flavor of Love 3!!!!




Flavor of Love 3!

I can't believe they're doing a THIRD series!

And they have TONS of people trying out for it! Check out the Flavor of Love 3 Casting site. I swear, some of these women are simply insane.
