Why does the list of Comic Book Hero Religions have Jay Leno on the list??

When it comes to time-wasters I tend to draw the line at lists of lists.

Philip K. Dick rocks!

"Because today we live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, by governments, by big corporations, by religious groups, political groups... So I ask, in my writing, What is real? Because unceasingly we are bombarded with pseudo-realities manufactured by very sophisticated people using very sophisticated electronic mechanisms. I do not distrust their motives; I distrust their power. They have a lot of it. And it is an astonishing power: that of creating whole universes, universes of the mind. I ought to know. I do the same thing."

I will be dipped in shiat and rolled in apple butter - an io9 list that is entertaining.

Productivity not ruined.... 30 seconds on that blog, nothing of interest.

It's an io9 link, so I will not click it and I refuse to be sucked into Gawker's blogspam.

If only all Southern Baptists were as hot as Rogue...

Also J. Jonah Jameson's listed religion: 'Hates Spiderman.'

Definitely got sucked into the list of unusual deaths on wikipedia. Which also sidetracked me in to limnic eruptions, Houdini's death (by an alum of mine, apparently!) and more. Gotta love the wikipedia rabbit hole.

Not a lot makes me squeemish, but this sure did:
From Wikipedia unusual deaths list:
1983: Four divers and a tender were killed on the Byford Dolphin semi-submersible, when a decompression chamber explosively decompressed from 9 atm to 1 atm in a fraction of a second. The diver nearest the chamber opening was torn apart before his remains were ejected through a 24 inch (60 cm) opening. The other divers' remains showed signs of boiled blood, unusually strong rigor mortis, large amounts of gas in the blood vessels, and scattered hemorrhages in the soft tissues.

It was Television without Pity for me. Never seen the site before.

I do love some Wiki rabbit hole.

Also, a nod of recognition to <B>subby</B>. TVTropes will indeed ruin your life.
