[color=#000000ost_uid0]Courtesy of the TrekBBS, VillainSupply.com. Just the thing for all of us here who are bent on global domination and have a few trillion burning a hole in our pockets. This is very funny stuff!

[quoteost_uid0]THE AMULET OF ARANON THE UNREADY*

This amazing occult amulet grants its wearer tremendous psychic powers.** The visions and prophecies afforded the user have led to the rise and fall of nations.*** But beware the curse that accompanies these great powers!**** Let the unready beware!*****

Price: US$9.99 ea.; US$6.99 for lots of 500 or more
*Actually, [iost_uid0]an[/iost_uid0] Amulet of Aranon The Unready. He made thousands of them. We have pallets full.
**Well, not tremendous. Basically, the wearer can see things that have already happened, if the wearer was actually present at the time. We grant that this isn't a very useful power.
***We made this up. Although, an Amulet of Aranon The Unready may have had some impact on the resignation of the Commerce Secretary of Trinidad in 1979.
****Wearing the amulet may lead to a slight increase in psoriasis symptoms. Not much of a curse, but then it's not much of an amulet.
*****We have no idea what this means.[/quoteost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Great site, it has to be said. Now if only I had an untraceable credit card.

Actually, there was one thing which particularly caught my eye: -

[quoteost_uid0]VORACIOUS ALIEN LIFEFORM BIOSPHERE DESTRUCTION SYSTEM

Chronowerx Industries presents the ultimate in Xenobiological Biosphere Destruction Agents. The Tribble™ is an alien lifeform that does only two things; eats and reproduces. Place one Tribble in a corn field in Iowa, and computer simulations indicate that the entire biomass of the Earth's surface will be converted into Tribbles within 42 days, based on exponential growth. And they're so darn cute, the foolhardy human populace will not realize their peril until it's too late!
[/quoteost_uid0]

Hmmm... now doesn't that company sound strangely familiar. I wonder if this is based upon 29th Century technology as well.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]^ If you'd expand that policy to include some of the network people, as well, I would support you. (Especially for the graphics and sound fx people. )[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I've heard it all - and frankly armies of intelligent fruit, muffins, or penguins just aren't going to work. As far as I'm concerned, world domination has just gotta be via a large, shadowy muli-national corporation. One of my friends did propose using televangelism though - I may have to have him eliminated.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Not especially a website, just two webpages. But this ad is stunning. :O For those of you who may have seen it already, the linked article has some amusing background on the production of the ad.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Another mere webpage, and really only a "webrectangle" at that (try it in Netscape if it doesn't do anything in IE). But it's an amusing clip, even if it is in a language I don't understand (Japanese). It might ring a bell for you anyway. http://www.ntv.co.jp/channel/kasoh/kin10.html



And Nan, it has only just occured to me to point out that, supposedly, a duck's quack does not echo. :blush: [/colorost_uid0]
