The comic is continuing. The action is continuing. I have now used the word 'whinge' in the comic, and I feel complete. Saying whinge is like saying whine, only much, much cooler.

I'm finding Ultimate X-Men by Mark Millar to be getting better and better.

Just a little heads up, Hard Underbelly will be featured at Stripper's Corner on November 29th. Stripper's Corner is a way cool site dedicated to giving smaller on-line comics a chance to shine. I like to check it three times a week, MWF, as those are the days it updates. It's a great place to find quirky little comics that nobody's heard of. I'm not saying it's all good, but then, nothing is.

I think I'm pretty much done here.

ALL THE NEWS THAT'S FIT TO (EXPLETIVE DELETED)

Mood: Awake
Music: Woolly Muffler; by Harvey Danger

First off, the Green River Killer has pleaded guilty. It will be the most convictions, though not exactly though most killings, for a serial killer in American history. I can see all those true-crime authors whetting their typewriters in anticipation of a quick million. I don't really like true crime novels. It just seems way to morbid to be reading about terrible things that happened to real people.

My typing is a litle slow thgis morning because my fingers are stiff. My fingers are stiff because it's colder than a witch's tit in Seattle.

There continues to be action in Hard Underbelly. This'll last another couple of weeks before chapter two starts.

If Guy Fawkes had succeeded in his 1605 plot to blow up Westminster Palace, the devestation would have been much greater than just that. He packed the corridors and tunnels below with apporximately 2,500kg of gunpowder. It would have levelled the palace, caused severe structural damage to building 1/3 of a mile away, and shattered windows on buildings up to 2/3 of a mile away. And with the size of London then, he would have, basically, destroyed most of the city. The article I was reading failed to mention why this is cause for a holiday for the British, though. Maybe it started out as a national day of remembrance of a tragedy narrfowly averted, and over the next 400 years, people forgot why exactly it was a holiday. In 400 years, do you think Americans will take September 11th off with only a vague idea of why they're getting a free vacation?

But don't get me wrong, I personally am already very tired of all the signs saying 'Never Forget' every 9/11.

I am a patriot, I'm just not a nationalist.

Something Awful is a funny website, but sometimes I get kind of burned out on them. They're just so bitter and cynical about everything, I kind of doubt that they actually like anything. There's only so much concentrated, insulting negativity I can take at a time before I get tired of it.
