[PD] Doctor's office

So Amelia said i should take some of the drawings i had an place them in a setting, a doctor's office for example. I said that if i did, she'd have to give me a caption. Hm, i'm still waiting. Anyone else?

No vikings anywhere

It seems i'm not the only one that wants this set. It's good to know that lego is having some success.



I also heard it mentioned on NPR's Talk of the Nation that these are hard to find, so it's not just here.

fix broken icons and other system troubles

From the /System/Library remove the following files - "Extensions.kextcache", "Extensions.mkext", and the folder "com.apple.kernalcaches"

Then run sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions (in the Terminal) to reset the cache info.

Of Comics and Men

So I've been thinking lately about how the appeal of comics is usually couched in terms of empowerment fantasy; weak, sickly nerds' dreams of retribution and invulnerability. But i wonder if it's not that the superhero is the embodiment of a single person making a difference and so they attract the people that want to change the world . Is wanting to change the world predominately the realm of men? Or, is it that only men dream of doing it by themselves? Do only progressive liberals read comics? Sure, there are some girls that read comics, but it's usually not superheroes.
