No, not this kind: http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/7070/farnsworth11hj.jpg. And not this kind: http://i46.tinypic.com/2z6wh6v.jpg either.

I've had nothing but bad news in my personal life for weeks on end now. Parental separations, foreclosure, strained relationships, work troubles, financial troubles, and now death and teen pregnancy all in one week. And that's just in my own immediate little sphere, not to mention all the shit goin' down in the rest of the wide world.

There must be some genuinely good news out there. Lay it on me. I could use some right now.

Mac's working on his next comic and I just discussed the details of my double arc with him.

Also, I've got an appointment for next week to see about getting job placement from school.

No Blue he said he wants Good News.

Well, some good news is that I am assisting in a comic with Bob and I will be on the radio with him hopefully this weekend.

Let's see...good news, good news.
I doubt the context of This Song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrEHDV1e460) is actually that good news.

I suppose I could try that somewhere, a child (in the UK at least, don't know timings elsewhere) will be succeeding with end-of-school examinations in brilliant ways?
Alternately, there's that whole thing about scientists finally, successfully, creating a living organism and the implications.

In leiu of spiritual revelation, here is a video of a baby hearing for the very first time

There is a video game called Pepsiman for the PSX where Pepsiman saves people trapped in a burning building with the refreshing taste of Pepsi. What better news is there?

In my city there is a place called BATMAN AUTO SALES. There is also a resturant called BATMAN'S GOOD FOOD.

Neither is Batman themed beyond the name.

Some things in life are bad, they can really make you mad.
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble, give a whistle.

Can this entire conversation unhappen?

On topic: I don't have any particularly good news in my life to talk about, but I find that when I'm down goofing around on the internet can do a decent job of cheering me up. I'd offer some links to amusing things, but I'm not really sure what Rick is into, and thus not sure what to link that might amuse him. Hope things get better for you Rick!

Still, all I can think of now is Navi warning about STIs shouting "watch out!"

Ah NonCon, it could be worse, we could be talking about CoM/CoL! Well, actually it's all your fault anyways for talking about Link-Dark Link fanfics!

Dude, you know what always cheered me up? Before having a wonderful daughter thats adorable, Killing Nazi's in games, or Zombies..or Civilians in GTA. Yeah...those are fun times.

I'm not speaking in third person today! Unless I post in the SoL RP thread, though it's only technically speaking from the third person.

Also, you probably don't live near me, so you and all your loved objects are safe from being dangerously flammable.

Hey Rick!

I have officially created a bomb that blows up and sends out pipes. It blows upwards and launches pipes about 8 feet in the air and then they drop back down.

I call it a 'pipe bomb' and my friends hate me for it. :D


I've also been playing with fireworks a lot lately since the neighborhood kids keep playing flare tag and I'm sick of my apartment windows getting hit, So- Have you seen the episode of mythbusters where they build a big arrow-launching machine? I can't remember any details of the episode but I've got a transformer on my balcony at this moment that looks like a Barbeque but if you flip it open the interior rises into a big mish-mash of plastic tubes and chain-link fence on either end.

I can light the whole thing with a barbeque lighter and fire off two-dozen rounds of fireworks on a 70 degree plane left/right and 120 degree plane up/down.

I am very proud of this thing. I've used it once, on the Memorial Day weekend. It was fantastic.


Oh and Rick- Today is the day I officially get told I'm going to survive everything! I'm going in for another set of X-Rays, and then the doctor (at 1:30 EST) is going to sit down and tell me that I'm healthy.

Motherfucker better tell me I'm healthy, I have a rocket-cannon.

Also yesterday I saw guy who had three kittens in his pocket. It was quite amusing. Especially the part when he come to chat with us. (I was at job doing absolutely nothing at all - It was summer job and last day of that shit)

Good news: Well - personally, I'm heading out to Los Angeles to watch ceremony for a film I edited that won a Student Academy Award.

That, and I ran into Dennis Rodman last night at the casino. He then hopped on stage at the bar and started singing "Play that Funky Music White Boy." Which, is good in several ways, foremost being, "Dennis Rodman is still alive!"
