Joe Shuster co created Superman with Jerry Siegel, and you may have also heard about the pair's other creation, Funnyman, which was, until recently, believed to be the most undignified thing the artist ever drew. But then the world discovered this . A whole lot of illegal S and bondage comics. These comics were so nasty they were banned by the Supreme Court. Their publisher, a mobster turned porn peddler, was sentenced to prison because of them. The only reason Shuster wasn't arrested too is that no one knew who drew these books until recently, when they were accidentally discovered in a used bookstore by a comics historian. It's not every day that you go home with a historic discovery AND something to wank to. The timeline makes sense, too: The stories were produced a few years after Shuster quit DC over a dispute involving Superman rights, and by all accounts he was having a pretty hard time paying the bills during this period at one point he even worked as a deliveryman. At least this gig offered him a chance to put his talents to use. Like, for example, by drawing a dude using a woman's butt cheeks as bongos. The old "butt bongos" technique. The comics, which were sold "under the counter," depicted a wide variety of torture acts, such as horse whipping, paddle spanking and hanging folk upside down. But that's not the most disturbing part here: that would be the fact that a lot of these drawings seem to depict intimate scenes from the marriage of a certain Mr. and Mrs. Clark Kent. Superman likes it when the landlady watches. Wait, this guy invented Superman and Rule 34? A true visionary. OK, so maybe the resemblance wasn't fully intentional. After all, there were only so many ways Shuster could draw muscular men and attractive girls. . but that doesn't explain what Lex Luthor is doing here: A bald, evil looking guy in the midst of enacting a diabolical plan? That's a pretty specific look there. Even Jimmy Olsen wasn't safe from being dragged into this sorry situation, despite the fact that no one could possibly want to look at Jimmy Olsen porn. This looks pretty innocent until you realize that nothing indicates he's wearing pants. So what could Shuster possibly gain by soiling his characters like this? Well, DC famously paid only $130 for the rights to Superman, so it's understandable that after falling on hard times, he'd want to get back at them with a little "fuck you." As we'll find out later, he wasn't the only one. 5. Gene Roddenberry's Sexploitation Film Star Trek. Gene Roddenberry created the original series, oversaw the first movie and sat back to cash in the royalty checks from the 200 other spin offs. But between the cancellation of the first series and the film, things weren't working out so well. After trying his luck with a string of sci fi TV pilots that never took off, he decided that his reputation was best left untarnished and that he should either wait for another Star Trek opportunity to come along or fade into obscurity with dignity. Retirement would give him a chance to engage in his true love: shopping for ever larger horn rimmed glasses. Just kidding. He actually went and made a film about a gym teacher having sex with high school girls. In 1971, Roddenberry co wrote and produced Pretty Maids All in a Row, his only non Star Trek film credit, which makes up for the lack of intercourse in his other work by featuring lots of it. The film starred Rock Hudson as Tiger, a high school gym teacher who acts as sort of a guidance counselor to his young students, helping them deal with their issues by introducing them to his penis. "Jenny, you need to apply yourself more in algebra. By licking my balls." Rock Hudson had not planned to grow that magnificent porn 'stache you see there: It simply came to be as soon as he stepped onto the set. He takes a virgin boy under his wing (basically, the same character from every movie made in the 80s), encouraging him to try his chances with a substitute teacher played by Angie Dickinson. Luckily for the boy, Dickinson happens to be a degenerate child molester too. But then some of the girls who attend the school, all of whom happen to look like Google search results for "nice boobs," start turning up dead. Meanwhile, more fucking. "I'm sorry to hear about your problems at home, Ruth. I hope my inappropriate groping helps." By the way, the movie also features a couple of Star Trek regulars: sadly, no Kirk or Spock (or Kirk and Spock), but Scotty himself shows up as Kojak's partner in investigating the tragically young and attractive naked bodies that keep turning up. This was supposed to lead into the spin off series: Scotty Kojak: Private Dicks. MGM did all it could to promote Roddenberry's first and only foray into the sexploitation genre, even getting a nine page pictorial into Playboy magazine, but the movie still flopped pretty hard. Part of it may have been because one of the promotional posters carelessly revealed the identity of the killer, a mind bending plot twist that we're considerate enough not to divulge here. Dan DeCarlo drew Archie for almost 50 years, forever linking his easily recognizable art style with the gang from Riverdale. He was also the creator of Josie and the Pussycats and Sabrina the Teenage Witch. The man was a true gold mine of inoffensive, insipid comic book characters. It's almost enough to make The Big Bang Theory look worthwhile. Hundreds of sexy drawings of barely clothed, large breasted girls. Before working for Archie, DeCarlo did pinups for a line of girlie digests called Humorama. Very few of them featured actual nudity, but holy shit most of those girls look exactly like Betty and Veronica with wigs (instead of clothes). 555088 184 Retro Jordan 1 Black Toe High OG 2013 ,Air Jordan 12 Low Black Patent Black Varsity Red Air Jordan 11 Low IE Black Varsity Red Nike Kobe 9 Low EM XDR Prelude 378037 010 Air Jordan 11 Bred Black Varsity Red 440892 307 Women Size Air Jordan 5 Retro Tropical Teal 2013 Air Jordan 5 White Varsity Red Obsidian 646701 700 Kobe 9 EM 543390 439 Air Jordan 6 Game Royal 2014 Women Size Air Jordan 5Lab3 Silver On the 11th April 2006 fourteen stories of scaffolding surrounding this hotel in Milton Keynes collapsed leaving three workers seriously injured, one of whom later died from his injuries. The next thing I remember is the platform on which I was working got pulled away and I stepped towards the building and fell down from probably over ten meters. But then I saw my left leg was at ninety degrees to my body and realised it should have been broken. The next thing I know the ambulance came and they put me on the tray so I was transferred to the Milton Keynes General Hospital. My injuries were; I broke both my legs and I broke my arm in three places so I needed surgery. As a result of these injuries, Ivan has had to retrain as a draftsman. experience difficulties in that I can't run properly and bending my knees is a bit painful and difficult, using my right arm sometimes can be a bit painful. And I need to live with the scar, it's just not going anywhere. When I was recovering from the accident I tried to stay positive and not think that much about what should be done and who to blame, I was trying to concentrate how to get back to normal and recover as quickly as possible and get out of that situation. 555088 184 Retro Jordan 1 Black Toe High OG 2013,From Our News PartnersCarolina Panthers Newton repeatedly refers to Lion's DT as 'Donkey Kong Suh'Army officer barred from entering daughter's school in uniformPanthers owner weeps while addressing domestic violence issueNew witnesses to Michael Brown shooting say teen had hands upPhotos: Remembering the Sept. 11, 2001, attacksKIRO 7 Eyewitness News headlinesPedestrian injured in Bellevue hit and run, police arrest driverPedestrian struck by Sodo bound sounder train in critical conditionKing County prosecutors say HIV positive man 'continues to endanger public health'Arrests made as minimum wage battle moves to BellevueTroopers: Driver reading magazine leads to road rage incident on I 5 MoreKIRO 7 WeatherWeatherKIRO 7 Interactive Doppler Radar5 Day ForecastAdvertisers and SponsorsFree ClassifiedsCars at AutotraderLocal Services at KudzuCoupons at Valpak.
Cheap And Premium Quality 555088 184 Retro Jordan 1 Black Toe High OG 2013,Air Jordan 10 Bulls Over Broadway Most Americans who have MLK Day off will return to their jobs tomorrow. Not Congress. It's taking the whole week off the mid January break to be followed by the mid February break, another recess in March, and so on through the months until August, which is completely free. And that's not all. Many Americans might not realize it, but their members of Congress, when they're in Washington, generally work only three days a week. House and Senate leaders brief reporters on what's ahead on Tuesdays, give wrap up press conferences on Thursdays, and then, like the Nike swoosh logo, they're outta here. "We have to learn how to put in a decent week's worth of work on the floor again," Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R) of Kentucky urged from the chamber this month. He was speaking about how the increasingly divisive Senate needs to change its ways, and he's not alone in his views. Many lawmakers and observers believe that if members of Congress didn't skip town so often, bipartisan tensions would ease and more work would get done. Last year was the least productive, as measured by legislation enacted, since World War II. They showed up at the same soccer games to cheer on their kids, barbecued on weekends, and had many more opportunities to socialize with each other across party lines. Not long ago, congressional committees produced the lion's share of legislation, and members of both parties had to work with each other on it. But today, a lot of the legislation originates in the leaders' offices, diminishing the role of committees. All this matters because it's harder to demonize your opponents when you know them, and knowing them allows for more effective legislating itself a time consuming process. For most members, the House gym is one of the last places where Republicans and Democrats still mix casually. Some members of Congress are trying to bring back the old collegiality. Rep. Luke Messer (R) of Indiana is president of the GOP freshman class in the House. Unusually, he moved his family to Washington. (The Hill reports that he sometimes has his office television playing cartoons for his children.) He has hosted family get togethers with Democrats who have also moved their families to the area. Olympia Snowe, the former Republican senator from Maine, also urges more time in Washington in her 2013 book "Fighting for Common Ground." If Congress returned to the five day work week, took fewer breaks, and synchronized the House and Senate schedules (they overlapped by only one week in the crucial rush to the finish line month of December), then representatives and senators would have more time and tamer temperaments "to address the critical issues," she argues. But the rhythm of Congress also has a history and logic that pushes against such reforms. Scheduling has changed drastically over the decades. From 1789 until the 1930s, Congress met during the first five or six months of the year, and that was it. By the 1960s, that schedule had expanded well into the fall, and in 1963, the Senate met the entire year with no break longer than a three day weekend, says Betty Koed, the Senate's associate historian. It was so bad that the late majority leader Mike Mansfield (D) of Montana, commented that he no longer recognized his wife during daylight hours. In 1970, Congress bowed to the member pressure to ease the long sessions and scorching summers and adopted, by law, the August recess. Cultural pressures in the 1990s largely shaped today's commuter schedule: Spouses, mostly wives, began to have careers of their own and didn't want to move to the nation's capital, or to uproot their children. The perpetual campaign required members to be in their districts more, even as the reputation of Washington sank, making absence a political plus. Neither the House nor Senate generally schedules any meaningful votes on Mondays or Fridays, so that members especially those from far away states can travel back to their homes each week. Meanwhile, the Internet allows lawmakers to be in touch from wherever. "Senate jobs are 24/7 and go with you wherever you go," says Ms. Koed. "It's misleading," she adds, to give the impression that because members of Congress are not physically on Capitol Hill, they're not working. Members don't consider a week back home as a break. On the official House calendar, it's called a "constituent work week." Usually, the time home is packed with town halls and other events. Representative Messer, for instance, had 17 events scheduled in 48 hours over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Of course, there's work and there's work. Former Rep. Lee Hamilton (D) of Indiana, who served in the House from 1965 to 1999, complains that when lawmakers are in Washington, their schedules are crowded out by fundraisers, meet and greets, and receptions. "Legislating is tough, demanding work. It requires many hours of conversation about differences, commonalities, and possible solutions," Mr. Hamilton wrote last month. "Yet when Congress meets only episodically throughout the year, when it often works just three days a week and plans an even more relaxed schedule in 2014, you can only come to one conclusion: They're not really willing to work hard at legislating." That's pretty much what Senator McConnell thinks. He made it clear that if Republicans retake the Senate in November, he'll change the schedule to extend the workweek. "The only way 100 senatorswill truly be able to have their say, the only way we'll be able to work through our tensions and disputes, is if we're here more," he said. 555088 184 Retro Jordan 1 Black Toe High OG 2013 Chances are you've got a dad or are married to a dad. Check out a selection of helpful gifts that would make any father proud. This year there are hundreds of affordable, durable and helpful gifts that can make your dad more productive, fit, or just downright cool. Read on for a handful of potential presents ranging from the high tech to the low waisted that any dad would love to get. Rocket Grill This sleek stainless steel rocket shaped grill is as beautiful as it is functional. It can cook up to 8 of Dad's special homemade burgers at once and its 240 sq. inch cooking surface is spacious enough to whip up enough of any BBQ fare for a family of four. The best part? It comes fully assembled and uses a small one pound propane tank. Yep, that means dad can just pull the rocket grill from its box, borrow one of his blow torch tanks and be ready to grill in 5 minutes. The grill's compact footprint and wheeled base make it perfect for small patio cookouts. A powerful single burner with convenient self ignition creates a ring of fire powerful enough to sear everything from chicken to steaks, while a sensitive burner control knob can bring the heat low enough to grill veggies or toast burger buns. Although it lacks the bells and whistles of its full size cousins (no side burners or accessory hooks, for one), this grill is a workhorse. Plus, Dad will look cool behind this bad boy, even if he's sweating a big t bone. Like Garmin's intricate travel gadgets, there is very little the Forerunner 305 can't tell you about your body as you work out. It comes with two pieces; a sensor you strap around your chest, and a watch like device that gives you the readout. Aside from providing a continuous reading of your heart rate displayed on the watch's easy to read screen, it boasts a limited GPS feature that not only tracks running or biking routes for you, but also allows you to save and catalog them and compete against yourself during future workouts. An added bonus to the Forerunner 305 is its pedometer feature and calorie counter. The model's large screen shows you the time, your pace, calories burned, speed and heart rate all at once so Pops won't have to risk tripping over his own feet while scrolling through screens. The relaxed cut fit nicely around the waist but didn't sag in the seat and weren't too wide in the legs, which was a bonus. Most designer jeans in the same price range are cut small and made for smaller frames. As a result, you typically have to buy a much larger size that usually means you're legs are swimming in them, or the seat sags. Not these. I found the jeans to be casual enough to bum around on the weekend, yet stylish enough to throw on a blazer and head to a nice dinner both of which I did in the jeans one Saturday. Although the jeans are lightweight, they are very well constructed and durable. I can see these being the type of jeans you own for a few years yet continue to look better with age. Still, for such a light sneaker, the construction seems remarkably sturdy, reminiscent of an insect's exoskeleton, with a rigid and light frame supporting a translucent, honeycombed mesh. As for comfort, these shoes felt snug and supportive, yet perfectly breathable and light. They were alarmingly light at first; I felt as if I was going to fall off the treadmill. Saucony boasts of "superior cushioning and stability by centering the heel on impact" with the Grid Sinister. Whether or not that's actually the case, I can't say, but I felt enormously confident and extremely light on my feet as I ran. For the type of runner that I am all out 5k a day on a treadmill these shoes more than lived up to the challenge. Breaking in new running shoes for me is generally an exercise in blister treatment the day after, but shockingly, there were no blisters or hot spots after the first run. As a result, I find nothing sinister about these running shoes whatsoever. Mp3 Player for Pops For those who use Windows Media Player as the digital music player of choice on their PC, the OTTO OT 3 one piece mp3 player/headphone set is a good, lightweight and simple solution. The unit charges through your computer via a USB cable and once you set it up, adding or deleting songs is easy. As for performance, these headphones pack a surprisingly high quality punch. Granted, you've only got a few equalizer settings to scroll through, but the controls are easy to use once you memorize where the little buttons are. The unit is lightweight and stays comfortably on your head with its wrap around design, even during physical activity, so it's great for the gym. I found the music to be plenty loud (although I listened at the highest volume setting, so if you like it really loud, this might not be for you) with fairly crisp high tones and good separation between bass and treble. However, the bass response of these over ear style headphones was not spectacular, yet serviceable so it should suit Dad just fine, so long as he isn't a 50 Cent fanatic.
