This is a criminal offense. Failure to comply with the notice of violation is a misdemeanor of the 3rd degree which carries a fine of $500.00 and/or 60 days imprisonment.
A blackly humorous piece called Didy Wah Didy in honor of, as Lawless describes it, "the last stop on a mythical railroad bound for hell." If you were driving west on I-70 this summer you were bound to see it: a sequenced neon sculpture shaped like a billboard containing these words: "ATOMIC PLAYGROUND AHEAD" and "KIDS! RIDE THE BIG ONE!!" in brilliant reds, pinks and blues. It's a parody of a sign, a piercing send-up of American culture and ideals, mimicking the many road-side attractions that litter American roads. "Tens of thousands of people can see it from the highway," says Lawless, which is exactly why the City of Columbus reacted. It seems that Lawless and/or Heritage Village didn't get the proper permit to display a sign so close to the highway. "But," as Lawless is quick to remind everyone, "it's not a sign. It's a sculpture in a sculpture garden." "We asked the city if a permit was needed for a neon sculpture installation," says Greenburg. "They said no." But apparently someone complained to the city and :"they were obliged to cite us."

I say this with all due respect, Ed.

Go to your sink, pull out every cleaning fluid you store under it. Make a cocktail. Drink that bitch

I would appreciate that

I really shouldn't be so mean. Like Wildcat, I owe you one.

You see, recently I was at a very low point. Considering doing myself in. Obviously I didn's and you and WC are, oddly, among the reasons. See, I figured that if I did, news of it would eventually filter back here. And the news would make you happy. I don't want to do a damned thing to make you and your kind happy.

So in a way, you saved my life.

At first I thought walking the plank was an invention of Treasure Island, like damned near every other pirate trope you can think of (Peg legs, treasure maps marked with an X, "The Black Spot", you name it). But I looked it up and the pedant is wrong. It wasn't a COMMON practice.. But pirates did do it occasionally. It was just a very rare thing. Like three or four known instances

I have watched that many times, actually. I enjoy it. Early (and I mean REALLY early, silent film early like this movie) horror is a weird hobby of mine.

Considerably from the older version I remember. I like the scene with the monster being created. That had to have been some scary shit in 1910.
