The following, which I hadn't noticed up until now. Cool!

Update: 11/08/00: OK, I should have said this earlier. The "Xeno Cams" in today's comic are showing images from other comics. XenoCam Alpha is showing that wondrous superhero Sporkman, and XenoCam Beta is showing Mysto from The Psychic Dyslexia Institute. The Secret Masters watch them. Why don't you?

I did a vanity search once and found out that I was an aviator and humorist. It showed up in both AltaVista and Google, so it <I>must</I> be true! Amnesia is the only rational explanation...<P>------------------
"Truth hides on the other side of a two-way mirror
In countless documents sent straight to the shredder
That might finally give us the whole of the picture
But until the day we decide to dig a little deeper
We know that truth will hide
Under fallen rocks and stones
At the end of a disconnected phone
Down an unmarked street
And buried, deep beneath your feet."
- Asian Dub Foundation, "Truth Hides" from <I>Community Music</I>
