https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_in_Hell
Format
The strip was published in a perfect square, unlike most Sunday strips which are published in rectangles. He had different types of format. He would make 4 rows of boxes, each row with 4 in it, when Akbar and Jeff were discussing love. He did 3 boxes by 3, very rarely did he use 4 boxes, and he made just box. One boxes were often quick and comedic, and 4 x 4 boxes often had a story line. This is based on the way Lynda Barry made comics when they were in college, and the way it was published originally in the "Reader." Atop each strip, he quickly writes out "Life in Hell" and Copyright Matt Groening and the year it was made. Sometimes though, he changed the way he wrote the title on top. Instead of being quickly written, sometimes it would be in balloons, or bubble letters, or fireworks, old English handwriting, etc., he also wrote "This is your" above the "Life in Hell." He also sometimes changed the way he wrote his name and date but not very often. In one strip "Why men growl" from 1982, he wrote his name as Matt Grrrrroening. In another strip, "Are you Easily Provoked?" He misspelled his name 3 times until getting it right and writing "godamnit" underneath. If he gets help from another cartoonist, he writes their names underneath his. Sometimes a message such as "My back feels better, thank you." He sometimes put where he was when he was making the strip, he'd write Chicago or Portland underneath his name.

The eponymous protagonist of the story is Greendog, the player character, a laid back, cool surfer and skater with a mop of bleached blonde hair. He has surfed most of the biggest waves around, including off the coast of Australia, California and in the Mediterranean, and is always in search of the biggest waves which will give him the biggest thrill and he cares for little else in life. He has numerous contraptions and toys, such as a gyrocopter, inline skates, a skateboard and an antique frisbee which could be very dangerous in the wrong hands. He doesn't say much except "dude" and "cool".

Rocky gives Paulie a robot servant/friend called Sico (an actual robot invented by International Robotics founder Robert Doornick[3]) that fetches him drinks and foodstuffs as a birthday present. Paulie's tough, unsentimental demeanour is highlighted by the brusque disdain with which he initially treats his mechanical helpmeet - dismissing him as "a walking trashcan."[4] However, by the end of the film, Paulie proudly introduces the robot as "my girl" to Apollo Creed and claims that she loves him. It is suggested that Paulie has helped the robot to transition from male to female - through some unknown kind of reprogramming. How Paulie gained the necessary skills remains unexplained, but it may have to do with his naval background.

The Downing Street website describes Larry's duties as "greeting guests to the house, inspecting security defences, and testing antique furniture for napping quality". It says he is "contemplating a solution to the mouse occupancy of the house" and has told Downing Street that such a solution is still in the "tactical planning stage".


Larry is the 10 Downing Street cat and is Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office.

Many dung beetles, known as rollers, roll dung into round balls, which are used as a food source or breeding chambers. Others, known as tunnelers, bury the dung wherever they find it. A third group, the dwellers, neither roll nor burrow: they simply live in manure.

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scatman_John

Larkin died at his home in Los Angeles on 3 December 1999 at the age of 57. He was survived by his wife Judy, his mother Harriet, and his brother Bill. He was cremated and his ashes were "scattered" at sea near Malibu, California.

The emperor of China [...] offered to marry his daughter to anybody that would present him with the head of his enemy. This was accomplished by the dragon-dog. Accounts vary, but eventually the dog and princess procreated copiously.

hmmmm

The term rumpology is a neologism. The American astrologer Jackie Stallone claims that rumpology is known to have been practiced in ancient times by the Babylonians, the Indians, and the Ancient Greeks and Romans,[2] although she provides no evidence for this claim. Stallone has been largely responsible for the supposed "revival" of rumpology in modern times.[citation needed]


edit:

The British rumpologist Sam Amos also uses shape to diagnose personality,[5] and claims that "A round bottom indicates the person is open, happy and optimistic in life. However, a flat bottom suggests the person is rather vain and is negative and sad."[6]


the whole article though really

The colour of Hyalessa maculaticollis varies between green and black depending on the location. Also, only the males make a calling sound, and this changes depending on the location. Japanese individuals have a call that sounds like 'min—minminminminmi...' (Japanese: ミーンミンミンミンミンミー…). Meanwhile, the sound of Korean individuals is like 'minminminminmi...' (Korean: 맴맴맴맴맴...) and a longer note duration (min—....) is found in the latter half of the sound.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/US_Festival
Labor Day Weekend, 1982
The festival ran for three days, in 110 °F (42.5 °C) weather. There were 100 arrests[citation needed] and a reported 35 drug overdoses.[citation needed] One "associated" murder of a hitchhiker occurred the day after the event.[citation needed] The festival lost a reported $12 million.[4] (Bands are listed in the order they appeared.)

Memorial Day Weekend, 1983
The reprise festival ran for three days, this time at the helm was Colorado-based promoter Barry Fey, who with Wozniak added a fourth Country Day a week later. Attendance was reported at 670,000 when you add each day's total together; the festival still lost $12 million.[5] There were two reported deaths.[6][7]
