This is World Peace

Metta World Peace (A.K.A. Ron Artest) has a mean elbow.  Ow ouch, and the follow through.  And to think they were going to change it to the Nobel Artest Prize and "Give Artest a Chance."  Gives World Peace a bad name.

Parallel Universe Titanic

The unsinkable Titan, struck an iceberg en route from America to England, and all but 13 of its around 3,000 passengers perished in an icy sea.  Sound familiar?  This was written 14 years before the actual sinking of the Titanic.  Could it be an interception from a parallel universe?

Possibly not for kids, it is humorous that at center Reagan and Cobra Commander are depicted sharing a martini.  I suppose the artist was for Mondale or Carter.

The source link also includes a write up on the Real Ghostbusters animated TV series that's a good read.  I lived on Ecto Cooler one summer.

The Coming War with China

When the US goes to war with China (over oil resources) and is defeated by China's larger and better equipped army, you can know that you supported China's military by purchasing goods manufactured there (if you own an iPhone or Android phone or an MP3 player or a laptop or an HDTV or etc. etc. since almost all of those items are produced there in factories using near-slave-labor).
