Out of the Blue

Happy 12/12/12! If you find taking interest in such repeating dates tedious, you'll be happy to know you probably won't have to suffer the next one, since it's due on January 1, 2101. We still have 11/12/13 next year, and 13/12/11 in yy/mm/dd territories, but unless my calculations are incorrect (and I can't see how they could be after I've devoted 10 seconds to thinking about this), those will be the last such date games we'll all get to play.

R.I.P.: Indian sitar virtuoso Ravi Shankar dies at 92.

For the first time, I'm wondering how superman shaves his face...

Some depictions, like the ABC series "Lois and Clark," had him using his heat ray vision to burn them off (like a laser). Either bouncing it off a regular mirror, or a special high-tech/alien mirror that could withstand his beam.

Another option I guess is the "Hancock" route. In that film, the hero's fingernails were so strong and sharp that he used them to shave.

There have been other suggestions when this concept comes up from time to time, usually involving Superman's 3 physical vulnerabilities: Kryptonite, Red Sunlight, and Magic.

wow, and I thought Kryptonians didn't grow facial hair.
