I spent too long in City of Heroes this morning… It’s fun, playing a supers game with old Gaming pal Rik, and Newer Gaming pals Sammy and Whims. It’d be neat if GrayPumpkin and Katt got in on the action, too. Not to mention Danny, Wu-folk, or most of all, mi amor.
I was surprised ah how any copyright violations / super parodies were running around in there… A lot of variants on the Tick, especially. (Barry, The Tick’, and my favorite, a red one called “The Tack”.) Also remarkable was a super by the name of Briar Rose. I thought for a half-second that it was Pam, but that’s not likely… I don’t see her throwing herself into a beta version of any game, or having a computer that’s up to the task. Who knows, though? Stranger things have happened.
No bombs dropped at the office yesterday… not sure why. I’ve got to call the Big Kahuna and find out where things stand this evening, just to see what’s what.
Office Religion Update, VS is a Roman Catholic. No meat this last Friday, etc. She stopped going while she was away at school, but may be starting up again, because she’s officially “home and on a proper schedule… not partying every Sat. nite.” I think Big K is sort of a general secular, if any kind of theist at all.
A man’s severed head has been found on a park bench in Honduras, bringing the number of such incidents to 10 in the past nine months, police sources said.
Officials had blamed previous incidents on the country’s notorious youth gangs, as they attempt to defy President Ricardo Maduro’s crackdown on them.
A message accompanying the latest severed head read “Maduro old man, we are so hungry we are eating people.”
A police spokesman told Reuters no-one had claimed responsibility.
President Maduro announced moves to tackle youth gangs, known as “maras” last August.
Hundreds of suspects have been rounded up since, on charges of violence, robbery and drug-related offences.
Stricter sentences have also been imposed.
Police spokesman Edgardo Zeron, quoted by Reuters, said the head was found in a plastic bag in a busy park in El Progreso, some 150 km (94 miles) north of the capital, Tegucigalpa.
He said Thursday’s incident, and the others, were being investigated by a special police unit.
The “maras”, which have their origins in the street gangs of Los Angeles, are active in several Central American countries.
The “Mara Salvatrucha” and its rival gang “Mara 18” are among the most feared.
In Honduras, some 30,000 youths – mostly recruited from street children – are believed to be members of these and other groups.
