a world with frogs and magic tricks

Wait, what? (That link, btw, is SOOOO not safe for work, but...still, even for SL, it's kind of eye-opening. And don't get me wrong, I have nothing against guys with padding...it's just that he looks so angry in the picture!)

While we're discussing bizarre things on the Marketplace, this one made me giggle maniacally for five minutes. Even better? They directly ripped off the name--and the logo--of Sephora.com! I wonder if there's anyone specifically to notify...Suppose you could drop a message off here.

Also, nice try, Blades, but that's Sonic. Blatant copyright infringement is blatant.

There's a fellow in the Minecraft community named Vechz. Vechz makes evil, evil downloadable worlds. He calls them his Super-Hostile Map series. And he's not kidding--they range from baffling to impossible to survive, and all are designed to be tricky and devious and trap-ridden and monster-ridden in every conceivable way.

Recently, Vechz was talked into playing one of his "Mini-Hostile" maps by his friends and fans. Did he survive the experience? Well, this was the result, so...I'd say no.

While we're discussing Minecraft, there's an enterprising fellow who decided Minecraft's Nether was too bland. So he generated his own. Phenomenal job.

Interestingly, I found that Adblock Plus for Firefox blocks Marketplace images as ads!

Well, considering they are ads...But apparently Firefox doesn't distinguish between "pop-up advertising" or "random advertising banner" and "catalog/product image"?

Save for, I'm thinking if you went to actual catalog company's websites, you could see those images...So what CSS protocol is causing the Firefox glitch, I wonder?
