(Yeah, yeah, not actually cellular. And certainly not pocket-sized. But getting there.)
I recall seeing one of those rigs in Sabrina, a Bogart film from 1954, and being amazed that such a thing existed at that time.

Somebody has decided to start publishing sourcebooks for Madness Dossier. Without trying too hard for plausibility or consistency.

While not a huge piece of weirdness, my 3 year old Daughter loves Nutella and oyster sandwiches.

Just make sure you enjoy this special time with her. Before you know it she'll have turned 18, developed gills, and have gone off to college beneath Devil's Reef. ;)

I don't think any part of their sentence involves things man was meant to taste. I don't like Nutella, oysters, or 3 year olds.

Looking for a way break into role playing in the world of contemporary art? The art of Alex Grey and Jason Hackenwerth begs for use as inspiration for a Lovecraftian or modern-day magic or psionics game.

[EDIT] Nota bene While viewing the following links would be routine office work for me, some have suggested that they may be NSFW for others.
