  1. OMG Death PANELS!!!! But sheeit, it’s Montana. Hey, if I couldn’t ever leave Montana I’d want to be Death Paneled, too.

    As for the Mickey Rat/Marvel buyout? You guys know that the Hanna Montana Meets Wolverine 12 issues special with 2500 different collectors versions and the gold plated laminated hardcover graphic novel is pretty much a go.

  2. “Nearly a third of all cocaine seized in the United States is laced with a dangerous veterinary medicine – a livestock de-worming drug that might enhance cocaine’s effects but has been blamed in at least three deaths and scores of serious illnesses.”

    Most coke users could probably use a good de-worming. This could be a good thing, like adding vitamin D to milk.

  3. Death panels from the state that brought us Theodore Kaczynski.

    Kid: Hey Dad, we got a package from Montana and it’s for Grandma!
    Dad: Let her open it.

  4. [re=399409]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]:
    You probably never will. Batman is owned by Marvel’s archrival DC/Warner.

    Scrooge McDuck Meets The Incredible Hulk still, sadly, a possibility.

  5. i think i see a bizness opportunity here. let’s see, how can we swing this… tainted cocaine can be sold to montana doctors for their death panel ops; while awaiting death, the imminent recipients of grim reaping can read marvel comix and watch disney stuff on the toobs; their families can use sony chrome computers to search for the best burial plots in afghanistan (pretty much the whole country, from what i understand); justice department lawyers can cease and desist in their foolish pursuit of justice and other unicorns, and can instead take care of all the legal paperwork this scheme would require. presto! i just knocked two percentage points off the unemployment rate. i sit by my phone, awaiting barry’s call.

  6. 70 years ago Nazi Germany invaded Poland. Two weeks later, the late, lamented Soviet Union attacked Poland from the east. Barcelona defeated Sporting Gijon last night in both team’s season opener. I’ve been using Chrome since it was released. Coincidences? Not entirely.

  7. the really cool crossover will be when the Beagle Boys team up with the Hellfire Club to finally give the x-men a real challenge (also we’re going to learn that Scrooge McDuck is the real financier behind S.H.I.E.L.D)

  8. [re=399435]magic titty[/re]: Depends how you define better. Much faster than my weighted-down, bloated with add-ons Firefox. Chrome is a bit of a minimalist experience, which I find refreshing. I have thrown my lot in with our new, almost everything is free, Google overlords.

  9. So has anyone ever worked their way through one of those Uncle Fester meth books? I hear it is about as easy as setting up an open source router (repeater + print server). Anyone know for sure?

  10. Wow. Sure is tough for the white man. When will the mainstream socialist media stop depriving us of the superior jobs and cultural dominance that we so obviously deserve? And why can’t these whiny minorities just make like Clarence Thomas and shut up?

  11. [re=399433]Gleep![/re]: A long time ago, I tried dressing up actual chipmunks and putting them in model airplanes as a way of creating a Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers live-action movie. Perhaps if I add in a Crimson Dynamo subplot (me in a red-painted cardboard outfit), I will get mucho Disney Bucks for the project.

  12. [re=399530]norbizness[/re]: please tell me that there is some film, somewhere, documenting this- nothing would make my day more than live action chipmunks- now if you could include the crimson dynamo footage as well the geekasm would be complete….

  13. A third of all cocaine in the US is laced with some veterinary drug that tragically is not one of the cool ones.

    Yet another Green Business Op. I’m seeing organic coca plantations, right here in the good ol’ USA. (And I happen to live next door to a rain forest, which is helpful, and we already have a lot of Messicans in the nabe picking all that salal). We could compete with Bolivia on this thing.

  14. A third of all cocaine in the US is laced with some veterinary drug that tragically is not one of the cool ones

    Hm, has anyone written a paper about how innovation happens in an illicit market?

    I’m curious. I’d do it, but the interviews would be kinda a bitch.

  15. Dangerous substances? In my coke?

    Probably still safer than half the legal over-the-counter stuff. My friendly neighborhood coke dealer has never claimed that what he was selling was “homeopathic.”
