John Allison Interview John Allison is the creator of the online comic strips Bobbins and Scary Go Round. He discusses his work (he sounds like he's not looking to get syndicated) and how he makes a living. This comment was says a lot about Allison. Sales are healthy enough to constitute a large part of my living. People like to support the comic and I really don't like the idea of donations, it's too much like begging. I try to make good products that people will want to buy, at a reasonable price. I refuse to sell anything that I wouldn't buy myself, just so people can blow their money on trinkets. My friends shake their heads at my ghastly, moralistic ways.

From here a horde of the least likely vehicles will be winding their way across 1/3rd of the world to Mongolia. The rules are simple, cars must be less than 1ltr and teams need to raise
How is the universe going to end? An entertaining article all about the freezing/burning/infinite/finite/depressing/exciting end of the universe, and the eschatologists who contemplate it. "Eschatology — it's a great word. I had never heard of it until I discovered I was doing it."

Comedy writer David Feldman is running for president. "I am a Patriot who believes you should never burn the American flag. Because I'm an environmentalist I recommend boiling the American flag. Although I have no military experience in the traditional sense, once while standing over a urinal in Spain I drowned a grasshopper with nothing but my stream."

Curious, George: Noise. What's with the proliferation of subwoofer bass? Seems five years ago I hardly heard it; nowadays I can't go a day without getting bone-jarring doses. A Google search on the issue turns up very little, nobody I know seems to care, and I know cops & city hall aren't concerned.
