A little fun with comics

There is a Belgium -French series of comics I very much like; it’s called Blueberry and features the adventures of a lieutenant after the civil war in the US. Born as a rebel, our cowboy always comes in troubles, sometimes due to his friendships with Indian tribes or his drunk and worthless friend. I use to read it from time to time, it’s an excellent comic (not like american comics, Belgium got some very fine series in its own style.) Beautiful drawn by different illustrators, but my favourite is Giraud. Check out this site: http://www.blueberry-lesite.com/blueberry.htm

I added some very nice cover-artwork here, and some fun images from in the stories. I removed the original text, and made some funny comment over it. See last image for my little joke.

If you feel like doing the same, copy the image, add your text and post it here again.

A little help with English language

None of us has English as his native language, and for someone this is such a big problem to prevent them from posting, commenting and even reading these pages. So here is my little help about this.

[Hmm… of course in English language 😐 ]

1– Use the Firefox browser with spell-checking incorporated.

Firefox automatically checks the spelling of words that you enter in text boxes containing more than one line. As soon as you finish typing a word, it is checked against the words in the installed dictionary. If the word is not found in the dictionary, it will be underlined in red


To use the English spell-checker, you have to add the English dictionary to Firefox: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Using%20the%20spell%20checker#w_adding-dictionaries

This will help you a lot!

2– I also frequently use Google Translate when I forget a word translation or just to check what I wrote: http://translate.google.fr/?hl=fr&tab=wT#fr|en

If instead of text you paste a URL into the field, Google Translate will give you back a transated version of the site (Beware: magic link! http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=en&tl=ja&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lameclan.tk%2F)

Scary places


CoyoteBluff scary cougar

I must admit, there are some creepy, scary places in the game, where I feel uncomfortable.
One of them is a dark pass between the house and the mountain wall at the Coyote Bluff map. There’s an angry cougar there. And it growls.
I tried to feed it with body parts of killed bots, but it’s still annoyed.
Please, share your fears, maybe mine will go away!

Who's afraid of Big Bad Cougar at Coyote Bluff?

All those little faces: smileys’ reference table

[Original source:  The Wiggles – Cold Spaghetti Western (I don’t really know what demential show is this, but I found it useful here) eh eh]

Just for reference of all gunslingers writing and commenting here, this is how text characters emoticons are automatically translated into graphic smileys (or “smilies”) by our WordPress installation. As you can see some of them can be obtained with 3 different versions of text.

If you don’t like graphical smileys, you can always use Japanese style emoticons 😛 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emoticons#Japanese_style).

These smileys were redesigned from original WP ones. And a cowboy hat was applied to them, copying the style of Smokin’ Guns forum (hey, a cowboy hat! Nice idea guys! [See also Sergio Leone’s citation below]).

The use of emoticons can be traced back to the 19th century, and they were commonly used in casual and/or humorous writing. Digital forms of emoticons on the Internet were included in a proposal by Scott Fahlman of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in a message on 19 September 1982


I’ve always been intrigued by MrGreen … what does it mean? Searching the web you find different and contrasting explanations: “I’m super happy”, “I’m a noob here”, “I’m sarcastic”, “I feel envy”, … :mrgreen:

Sergio Leone –famous director of many “Spaghetti Westerns”– reportedly took to Eastwood’s distinctive style quickly, and commented that “I like Clint Eastwood because he has only two facial expressions: one with the hat, and one without it.” The same lack of expressiveness that we have when we must talk in a foreign language. Emoticons help us to better express our thoughts in a visual way, avoiding misunderstandings.
But don’t abuse!
