One tidbit: Note that in the Miss America comic's top-right panel, The Statue of Liberty is on Bedloe's Island. The name of the island wasn't changed to Liberty Island until 1956. Also, it's crazy that it took only about an hour to travel to The Statue of Liberty and back, at least in the comic books. I've been there a few times, and it takes a minimum of 3 hours, between waiting and travel times.

This list should be called, "Random films that take place in these states". Why these movies? It seems like half are totally on the nose (Rocky for PA), while half have me scratching my head (Three Faces West for ND). There was no rhyme or reason behind the choices.

Step 1: Coat one brownie in ghost pepper powder. Step 2: Toss the brownie within sight of the bear, but far enough away that it doesn't reach a paw inside. Step 3: Film it, with your phone held HORIZONTALLY (very important). Step 4: Internet LOLs.

My main issue is the look of the Klingons. Despite being a really different look from other series', there's also the issue of whether or not they should even have ridges. In Star Trek: The Original Series, they had no ridges, because they didn't have affordable technology to do so on TV in the 1960s, and because the makeup wasn't even adopted for Klingons until the 1979 Star Trek: The Motion Picture. This was explained in the early 2000s series, Star Trek: Enterprise. In that series, the ridges disappeared prior to The Original Series due to the "Super Soldier Serum"-like eugenics concoction used to create Khan Noonian Singh and company, being used on Klingons and spreading like a virus to make the Klingons look more human, and ridding of them of their ridges for several generations. So, despite a claim by the producers of this show to make this new series canon within the confines of the television universe, and not the post-2009 movie universe, they already completely ignored one of the major facets of one of the major non-human races in the universe.

And some cleaning lady has to wash off what looks like permanent ink from all those surfaces. This guy isn't witty. He's just another a*hole.

The story of the attempted battery refund brings up an interesting thought. I had something similar happen to me once in retail, so it makes me wonder...how many times in history has this stupid response happened? Did it happen in Ancient Babylon? In the earliest days of the barter system? Is this particular stupidity built into human evolution?

I remember seeing this news clip being replayed on a couple different shows, like That's Incredible and other comedy clip shows. I was amazed as a little kid at his gifts. He should really get into a rap battle with Eminem.

I was city hall mailroom clerk in a small midwestern city. About 90% of my job was signing for packages from animal control. They were almost always rabies specimens, which included dead bats, or the heads of dogs or cats. The specimins always in a cardboard box, but there were stickers on the outside saying, "Rabies - danger blah blah", and what animal. There was a small dorm fridge that I got to place these in until someone would stop by with a cooler for pickup. (Sidenote: I managed to get fired from this job on 9/12/2001 for showing up late twice. I joined the air force the same day.)

I was a sophomore in 1992, taking a midterm test in my American History class. For extra credit, we were told to name the presidents, from Washington to Polk. Next to the pencil sharpener: a poster with all 42 (at the time) presidents. I sharpened my pencil like 4 times during that test. Terrible luck with breaking my lead. Sadly, the poster was taken down shortly after (I was probably too obvious), and I was forced to memorize the presidents from Washington to GRANT for the final. I still remember the mnemonic device I used for those presidents.

Okay, what everyone needs to do, since they regret not doing this when they were 12, is to create a fairly open script and do one of these for when you're 20 years older. Do like an hour of dialog (so it can be trimmed down to something fairly cogent of, say, 3-5 minutes), and do about a dozen of these over the course of a year. The one thing I regretted after watching this video is, for how amazing it is, there will probably not be a sequel.

I've had a number of painful papercuts dealing with cardboard boxes as a warehouse employee. I can't see how cardboard furniture for children is a good idea.

Their final victory entails them finally acquiring a nuke...and then its rocket accidentally exploding on the launchpad, irradiating its citizens, half of Asia, Guam, Alaska, Hawaii, and the west coast of the USA in the process.

Great. Thanks a lot. Now I'm thinking, "Dang, it just has to be me, doesn't it? And I don't even know it? Why do I even have any friends?", etc...

I say send him up, sell advertising on the rockets like they do with NASCAR, do anything to generate interest in the space program, and the means to pay for it. We need to get moving!

Let it happen. While Watchmen (according to many) is the best comic book series or mini-series ever printed, a movie-version of a prequel will not ruin the actual product. The television mini-series "Scarlet", a sequel to Gone With The Wind, did not ruin the original. The film version of A League of Extraordinary Gentlemen did not ruin my reading of the comics (or their much older character sources). A prequel to Watchmen will not ruin the original comics.
