If I had a dollar for every person who has hallucinated ancient hieroglyphics off a stucco ceiling I'd be a thousandaire.

One of the weirdest Dr. Strange collectibles EVER

The first thing I thought when I saw this on eBay was that this was probably a bootleg. How many Marvel Comics characters have products with Batman, Hawkman and Green Arrow on the side that are legit? The auction description listed it as "DR STRANGE * MARVEL UNIVERSE * SKILL GAME BOX ARGENTINA", so perhaps this was one of those foreign companies that licensed a bunch of American characters for their products and tried to make as much money as they could off of a few pieces of production art they were sent to work with. Bootleg or not, the entire "skill game" package is bizarre.

The box, which is a bit smaller than a pack of playing cards, contains the following: un-assembled miniature Rubik's Cube blocks, a small screwdriver, and some stickers in multiple colors to attach to the blocks when the cube is assembled. These stickers have Dr. Strange on them, so it's a "Make Your Own Dr. Strange Rubik's Cube Kit"!

Keeley Hallis RIP

One of the toughest things to see is putting a pet to sleep when they're in too much pain to carry on. Keeley was a great dog. She always seemed to be smiling. When you threw her a ball she would never go to fetch it. At first I thought she might be dumb, and she might have been (I can't really judge those things with dogs) but then I thought "Maybe she just doesn't play fetch". She surprised everyone when she jumped over a 6 foot fence by backing up to the garage and taking a flying leap. That was pretty clever. Keeley liked going for walks with my Mom and keeping my Grandmother company as they watched "Cash Cab" and "Judge Judy". She never whined or needlessly barked. She was a very good girl. In the last few months she got too sick to walk properly and had a rough time of things just moving around. A week ago it got too bad she couldn't get up, so yesterday we took her to be put to sleep.

Animals have a distinct sense about when they are going to die. She put her paws on my hand in the car all the way to the vets and was only scared for a second at the end. The relief came quickly after the fear and that was that.

I'll miss her.

The number Pi is all the proof you need that there is a divine presence in the universe.

So if in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make, is that also true of the beginning? Of the beginning? Of the beginning?

Best Canadian film of the year

I know what I want to be for Halloween! Rutger Hauer is amazing. A wonderful piece of Canadian cinema that is everything you would hope it would be.

Do you say "My favorite fruit is blueberries." or "My favorite fruit are blueberries."?

Is it a mark of insanity if you sometimes think that your mood and the mood of people around you can change the weather in subtle ways?
