This is a very sad event for me. I was a gamer in my youth [still am to lesser extent] and that culture had an impact on my life. A good time spent with friends using our very vivid imaginations. Too many deride people who game, but it is a driving force getting people interested in reading, developing mental skills and learning about history, myth, the Classics, etc.

Damn. Bluesad

I was big into D & D in the 80's and early 90's when he had moved on from TSR, but I still knew who he was. I even read some of the novels he wrote (still have them, too).

I guess he failed that one last saving throw.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
