Opening a comic store

Newsarama has a great article on The ups, downs, ins & outs of opening a comic shop. I’ve made no secret of the fact that one day I would love to own my own business, and in particular I would love to have a great comic store on the par of Jay and Silent Bob’s … Read more

A little fun that I’ve done before

Dolphins, not just for dinner anymore!

I just saw this on Wired.com’s “Furthermore” section; Safety in Numbers A pod of dolphins circled protectively around four people swimming 300 feet off a New Zealand beach to fend off an attack by a great white shark, according to a report Tuesday by the New Zealand Press Association.
