My family owns a game of Clue, the famous board game from parker brothers. Now the good old boys of parker brothers seem to like to come out with a new 'edition' of this illustrious who done it. But MY families edition, came out around mid-late 90's the 'pistol' didn't look well..normal. I mean, lets go over the classic stereotypical most common pistol types.
Flintlock AKA Pirate Pistol, common to Treasure Island and movies based on theme park rides created by well known antisemites...(BREATH!) rip-offs.
Revolver or Cowboy Movie Pistol. The first effective repeating pistol, this gun, did some major ass woopin' on many an old western movie set. Also common among members of the Fictional City police.
Semi-automatic or Automatic pistol. Despite the movie love of calling those square chunks of metal 'automatic' there are few true automatic pistols on the market. It would be wasteful anyway, what's the freaking being able to shoot 900 rounds a minute if you run out in...well zip. Less then in fact.
Anyway there is another kind of pistol. Its called a 'pepperpot' pistol. Why? I don't know. All I know is its the goofiest name for a deadly weapon (is there any other kind?) I have ever heard of. It's also, most impotently, not in Earthlings Stereotypical Guide to Pistol Type Gunnery and Assorted Hardware. Its obscure, damn obscure. If I type Automatic pistol in the image search on Google (all hail the Google!) I get 122,000 hits, revolver pistol, 91,000 hits, flintlock 42,600. For the pepperpot pistol? And this is with the quotations off folks, 226. By Google standards that is nearly zip, nothing, nit, bupkis. And only about 5 of the pictures are OF pepperpot pistols.
We are talking serious obscurity levels. So why is it in the game? Was the Vice president of Clue Weapon Design at parkers brothers a collector or something? Its not just the card, the little metal piece is also a pepperpot. Now, this has got to be the worlds stupidest rant EVER, but it still puzzles me. If you have the answer, and you read this blog,(the chances are Astronomically low, I know) then please write and tell me.Put a comment on this peice, Please I beg you (actully, I beg for comments on any post) I would love to know why. please tell me, I can't get to sleep at night, it haunts me! please tell me, please! *sob!*

I mean you can find any cartoon you can name, any character, and somewhere on the information superhighway, there will be a picture of one having sex with another. It can chill you to the bone. The whole world seems to wants to have sex with a cartoon. And I don't just mean hentai, in fact hentai and anime aren't really my complaint. Hentai is designed to titillate, it is the authors intentions. But when some hack artist, decides to use his either mediocre, or sometimes brilliant art skills, and turn out a cel fuck-fest. I mean Babs and Buster of Tiny Toons going at it like well...rabbits, I am talking spongbob and patrick fucking like flounders, I am talking Mr.Jetson getting head from Mrs. Jetson. I am saying Disney porn and Simpsons Sex. If you want it, you'll find it. Trekkie Monster is right, the Internet IS for porn. Everything else, is just filler.

I love Calvin and Hobbes, the humour and wit always astounded me. But unlike a lot of thoughtful comics, it was also riotously funny. It made you think whilst you laugh, and believe me, that takes work. Some genius decided to put the song breakaway to the comic, and somehow, it works, it gives Calvin a nobility he may not always deserve, but should get anyway. Heres to Calvin and Hobbes.

Basicly there is murder and we never know who did that one. There is another murder, and we find out in a turgid infodump near the end who it was, plus a bunch of weirdness that basicly feels stupid. I like to keep in an open mind about things, but this was stupid.
I won't spoil it for you, but when and if you are foolish enough to pick up this book, you will know what I mean. If you do still want to read it, go to the library, and by Jove don't turn it in even a day late. Otherwise its a huge waste of money. Of course its also a waste of your time. but, its your life, If you want to feel your brain been pulled out of your nose by a crotchet hook, that's your business. But if I stop even one reader from picking of this prison gang bang of a book from reaching even one reader, stopping it from turning one reader off the written word forever, then I can rest happy.

Cons: Everything else
Now I was born in 1986. The main thrust of the feminist revolution was over. So I grew up considering thinking misogyny was a great evil. This is the world I grew up in. If I have offended any feminists with my words, then I am sorry, but it was my gut reaction, and I stand on it, (My gut that is, seriously I was nearly blowing chunks after reading the Manifesto) I do think people who hold positions close to what she had to say are wrong. But I still hope we can talk like grownups. Because, I still somehow, cherish in my heart the hope that I can talk to anyone about anything, and not get angry be objective and all that. This woman, dead in her grave, is someone you can't talk to. But I hope I can with others.
