I woke this morning from an awesome dream. It had Sgt. Rock, Little Sure Shot, a Random Important Scientist, an Albino Evil (Nazi? Probably) Guy, and a Yeti. In a snow-covered countryside. Kind of peaceful and picturesque - until the Yeti started throwing stuff at Rock. The best part was when the Yeti chased Rock into a playground, tried to circle around to cut Rock off, and Rock grabbed onto one of those sliding, firehouse-type poles, and swung and kicked the Yeti right in the face. Then shot it in the head six times.
If only I knew what it meant...
- Marvel: Ultimate Alliance thought - In the final level (Doom's Castle), there are all those books talking about Doom's life, and how great he is, and how Reed sabotaged Doom's experiment to destroy him. One mentions the attempt failed, but that Doom's countenance was scarred and must be hid behind a mask. Why doesn't Doom just fix his face with the Odin power? He's remaking an entire world, that should be easy as pie. Then you could start off fighting an unmasked Doom, but when you steal some of his power, his face reverts, and then he get truly angry.
- I was watching the Simpsons this week, and I've been trying to figure out why Sideshow Bob wanted to kill Aunt Selma. As far as "get revenge on Bart" plans go, it seems kind of weak. Did Bob just really feel the urge to kill someone?
- Then there was the second "Uncle Herb" episode. You know, Homer's half-brother, trying to recapture his fortune after Homer ruined his car company? Herb built the baby translator, and it translated baby sounds into plain English. So I started wondering, do babies make sounds in different languages, or is it all just one generic Babyish? Like is French baby talk different from Spanish, or Swahili? I remember hearing somewhere that the younger you are, the more readily you can pick up multiple languages, but I don't know if that has a connection to anything.
