    Hi. I'm curious about this. I know a guy who claims to be a Christian, yet believes in the Flat Earth ideology. Flat-earthers believe that the world's a flat disk or plane. They think NASA lied about the world being round and their other scientific claims. FE'ers refuse to believe the world is round, despite there being photos taken of Earth from space and that it's been proven time and time again for CENTURIES that the world is round. They think photos taken of Earth from space are fake, and that NASA has some hidden agenda they are trying to suppress from the general public. Adherents of the Electric Universe theory believe that electricity plays an important part in the formation of the universe. Electric currents that flow along plasma filaments shape and power galaxies. The currents stream into stars, powering them like fluorescent bulbs. They induce the births of planets. Craters on those planets come from electrical arcs, like lightning bolts, that sear the surfaces. Which ideology has a bigger cult following: "Flat Earth" or "Electric Science"? My "friend" actually believes the earth is flat, because the Bible uses phrases like "corners (Rev. 1, Ezekiel 7:2, Isaiah 11:12)", "ends (Isaiah 41:5, Job 37:3 and 38:13)" and "edges of the earth (Job 38:13)." Isaiah 40:22 says "circle of the Earth". I told him about this, and he argues that a flat disc can be round. I think he's a Fundamentalist- he's taking Scriptures literally. Please help- thank you.

    Hi. I recently saw this: http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/07/09/mexican... I didn't know such a racially-offensive comic book/strip character existed, in this day and age. I am not really surprised- people down in Latin America don't see anything wrong with depicting African Americans this way. I have seen some doc on TV showing how Latin Americans depict African Americans in their entertainment- some of their depictions are VERY racist. In some circles in some Asian countries Blacks are depicted in a similar manner. I am African American and I am a little offended by the character and the character's mother. I am glad the American store who was carrying merch based on this character recalled all of it. Doesn't really bother me THAT much though. I am a Christian and a cartoonist. I would probably be more offended if some American depicted African Americans in such a racist manner. Honestly, I thought that was some monkey character from some comic when I first saw it in the article. I kid you not. I am glad African American activists saw the character and the character's mother and spoke up about it. What about you? What's the most racist thing you've learned about recently? Please help- thank you.

Quotation marks are reserved for sections of works, like the titles of chapters, magazine articles, poems, and short stories. Use italics for titles such as: books & novels. magazines, journals & newspapers. book-length poems, collections, and anthologies.

I would like to index the titles of things like TV show shows and movies and video games in questions on here. You aren't supposed to put them in quotes. The rules for quotation marks around titles vary depending on which style guide you follow. In general, you should italicize the titles of long works, like books, movies, or record albums.

    One night, a few weeks ago, I was outside in the plaza parking lot when I had finished my grocery shopping for the evening, after the supermarket I usually shop in had closed. I was in the lot just about to leave and go home, and I turned my head when I heard and saw the supermarket employes burst of the vestibule that leads to the entry of the supermarket and stand around chatting in front of the supermarket. I overheard them talk about the new Aquaman movie that just came out, then they disappeared back into the store, and I got my pushcart full of groceries and left the lot to go home. That was weird, because I wasn't expecting THOSE people to come out of the store and talk about some pop culture thing. Sometimes they stand around the front of the store chatting when the store is closed, but that was a first for me- I have never seen and/or heard them do that before. That's probably no different than the time I was at a Walmart or Target store in a nearby town one night a few years ago, grocery shopping, and overhearing store employees talk about some recent Star Wars film that came out at the time. What about you? What was the weirdest thing you've experienced recently? Please help- thank you.

Even though Lee retired from Marvel in the '90s and remained a public figurehead for Marvel since then and became Chairman Emeritus for Marvel, which meant he took on an advisoral/consultory role for the people at Marvel, Lee still continued to work in the comics industry on projects outside of Marvel. There's a handful of non-Marvel comics-related projects Lee worked on: http://sciencefiction.com/2018/11/23/10-... https://www.cbr.com/stan-lee-15-non-marv... There's a few non-Marvel comics-related projects I can think of off-hand I know Lee created: The Stripperella series, which starred Pamela Anderson: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stripperel... The Just Imagine... series Lee did for DC Comics: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just_Imagine... in which Lee reinvented a number of DC's superheroes in a series of one-shots. The Guardians Project, which was a team of superheroes Lee created to represent each team in the NHL: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Guardian_Project_(comics) I'm a little surprised the first two links I posted don't mention this project.

    Hi. People who create voices for fictional characters can do this a number of ways. I know many professional voice actors are capable of voicing multiple characters and making their voices all sound different, but sometimes voices are created articiducaly. For example, when Mel Blanc voiced Daffy Duck and Sylvester, He did the Sylvester one and this voice was sped up for the Daffy one. Normal people's voices were sped up for both Disney's chipmunks and for Alvin and the Chipmunks. There's probably other ways people can create character voices, by tweaking and other means, but I'm not an expert on this. Do they have voice modifiers that can make you sound like anyone you want to? Any type of character voice you want? If I wanted to create a girl's voice, do they have a voice modifier that would make me sound like one? I would like to create some voices for some animated projects. Please help- thank you.
