Eating the paint chips off these made me the man I am today.

Kryptonastic? I had an ass tick once. I had to burn it off, then pluck the head out with tweezers.

Neat. I've always wanted to step on Superman's cape.

I wouldn't reccomend doing a GIS for "Superman's Kryptonite", as it yeilds disgustingly semen-focused pornography.

How about Fark makes a deal with X-E that whenever X-E puts up a new topic, its Web server automatically submits the link to Fark using a special page and it automatically gets posted without Admin intervention, with an "amusing" tag.

Same goes for Strongbad, but with a "Cool" tag instead.

Johnny_wadd- No wonder Superman liked Lois.

What's with all the ads? I haven't been to XE in a year or so, but they've managed to sell-out like crazy by then.
2003-05-21 05:29:53 AM  
Ehhhh. yeah.

I actually read this article (shoot me) and he says that the rocks are so small (only an inch or something) that even if Superman swallowed them, they wouldn't bug him.

But Lex always messed with him with his little Kryptonite ring. I'm no Superman fan, but any size of Kryptonite would "bug him" in the "Die, die, die!" sort of way.

Wow. I actually owned some of these as a kid.
2003-05-21 07:23:44 PM  
Me too. Musta been a Colonel thang.

Did any one else notice that Flash matrix Ad for powerade? Annoying as hell but pretty cool too.

My mom wouldn't buy me the real ones when they came out, so I did as Matt did in the article and painted some ordinary rocks w/ glow-in-the-dark paint...

One of my friends that deals in collectibles gave me one of these recently. The best thing about it is the hilarious "Kryptonastic" instruction book that comes with it. The actual rock is kind of lame. Also Matt's article wasn't all that funny.
