List O' Links for Friday April 5th, 2013


It's Friday, and there's a lot of fun to be had this first weekend of April. Let's not waste time and get to the links!

Twenty-one things you didn't know about the movie Gremlins.

This article is a bit too harsh than I think is necessary, but I agree that Pizza Hut has created some products that definitely represent thinking outside the (pizza) box. Here is a look at the crazy products the pizza chain has created over the years.

The Walking Dead TV series has generated its biggest ratings yet with its recently concluded third season. Here are ten other independently published comics that deserve series of their own (I vote for Chew!).

Getting back to restaurants, Generation Xers such as myself will remember a time long ago when McDonalds had large outdoor McDonaldland playsets featuring the classic characters such as Ronald McDonald and company. They literally had much more character than the indoor plastic playsets of today. Check out some photos of the old playsets and an industrial film about the making of these playsets here.

I'm not an atheist, so I don't have a horse in this race, but this Salon.com author notes five atheists who ruin it for everyone else.

Finally, many comic book critics have lamented the hyper-sexualized portrayal of women in comics, especially superheroines. One artist created his own designs to show what a fully dressed superheroine can look like.

Have a great weekend!

I am an atheist, and don't think that these folks do much to "ruin" atheism, any more than Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, agnostic, animist, or other idiots do to ruin their faiths...as opposed to too often worsening, at least, the lives of those around them. Some atheists, such as Ayn Rand and M. M. O'Hair, simply wanted to be popes of their own new churches...most atheists don't have much to do with either, nor with the Four Horsemen (and their sometimes curious beliefs, such as Hitchens on the evolutionary insignificance of humor in women...as if women didn't need a sense of humor nor the ability to joke when faced with the likes of Hitchens and the much worse perpetrators they are likely to encounter...).

Rather an old article, too...

The fully dressed adult only occasionally wears something that mimics a six-pack, but that was a pretty amusing take. (Nice to be reminded that Wonder Woman did dispose with the cape...)
