Out of the Blue

I noted a couple of anniversaries here yesterday, but failed to note that yesterday marked 15 years since the release of DOOM II on October 10, 1994. It'll probably never happen, but I'd love to see DOOM LIVE in the vein of QUAKE LIVE, with online leaderboards and such, as I still miss DOOM II multiplayer in a big way.

I was only 7 of 12 on the Onion quiz -- but I suspect any regular readers of The Onion will do better than I did -- I rarely go over there.  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.

The art from stamps is awe inspiring. I'm a very patient person, but there's no way in hell I could do something like that!

*edit*
I got 9/12 on the real newspaper or onion headline quiz.

Chinese artist Yao Shaowu
Those are amazing.
 
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.
