This is cool:

In English, the name of each integer shares a letter with each of its neighbors. ONE shares an O with TWO, TWO shares a T with THREE … and so on to infinity.

Trivial, yes. But still cool.

Gov. proposes selling L.A. Coliseum, other properties to raise cash


We'll never, ever be able to replace these properties, and even 1 billion isn't enough right now to make a real difference. We won't see the benefits for years, and we'll be feeling the effects of the loss of these properties forever!!

I don't believe that any bureaucracy should ever sell real estate. That goes for Boy Scouts, Churches and governments. You can never get that land back, and at some point, you'll really wish you had it. Lease it, lend it, whatever - but do not sell it.

Ok.... I'm done with my tantrum. Thanks for listening.

Wow... this looks really good! Very striking visually. Better than Aladdin or Little Mermaid, and at least on par with Beauty and the Beast and Lion King. The voodoo magic makes for an interesting villain story, as little as we can see. Looks like a hit!
