Bioresonant clothing seeks to exploit an astonishing new theory in bio-physics: that the information exchange in human consciousness can be directly influenced and enhanced by vibrations of Light, that we call colors. Isn't color stimulation safer for us than the water we drink?
What's in a name? Spawn creator Todd McFarlane creates a comic book character named after marginal NHL hockey player Tony Twist (okay, a goon). Twist sues and is awarded $24.5 million. McFarlane appeals and a new trial is ordered. The U.S. Supreme Court doesn't want to touch it. Should copyright protection be extended to prevent people from using your name?

Children Speak from the Heart A group of eight graders wrote "get well" letters to their heart attack-stricken English teacher. I don't know what was more likely to kill him -- their sentiments or their spelling and grammar. No Child Left Behind Indeed.

Behaviourism lives on... more inside
Think you could do a better job as president than any of these bozos? Well, here's your chance!

Abandoned Bikes of New York - No Leo, no heavy-handed Scorcese, and it doesn't take 3 and half hours to look at, either.
It looks like Kill Bill Vol. 2 is going to be delayed until at least April. Meanwhile you can send members of the Deadly Viper Assassins after those who have wronged you. Boy did this come in handy today. Take that you evil boss wench!
