More Things to Worry About on Thursday

Worst-case scenario for a Korean woman addicted to cosmetic face surgery [yes, with photos] [Not Safe for Stomachs] Daily Telegraph (London)

The southeastern-Turkey city of Batman sued Warner Brothers, seeking a piece of the caped crusader franchise. Variety

If you're a military vet and file a disability claim today, you likely won't hear from the VA before May 2009, and if they turn you down then, and you appeal, don't expect action during Obama's first term (but a lawsuit filed Monday demands 90-day and 180-day deadlines, respectively). Washington Post

Update: The European Commission has scrapped some of its "ugly fruit and vegetable" rules, so too-bent cucumbers are now legal (but too-bent bananas are still restricted). New York Times

Batman Why sue WB? Our caped crusader's been around in the funny pages for decades! Maybe they just got electricity in Batman and don't know about comic books.

VA I think it has been clearly demonstrated just how much Uncle Sam cares about his vets. One of our group over here saw Walter Reed 1st hand BEFORE the fix-up.

Ugly Fruit This @#[email protected]#$ is what you get when you send idiots into positions of authority! Did you know that carrots have been declared "fruit" over here!

Plastic surgery - possibility of mental disorder, you say? Nah!

Batman - Didn't they learn anything from the failed lawsuit that the town of Spider-man, Ukraine lost against Marvel Entertainment?

Ugly fruit - I'd like to see the documentation which illustrates the maximum acceptable curve radius for bananas. I need to start bringing a protractor to the grocery store... you know, to protract the shopping experience.

"but she would still look at herself in the mirror and think she was beautiful" - Yikes! That's like the opposite of starvin-marvin anorexic girls looking in the mirror and thinking they're fat.
