    Uri Geller was determined to have his vengeance on Johnny Carson….

    I’m loving the octopus-styled white hair. And curious about the Chesley Bonestell space ship cunningly disguised amid other debris.

    How come his less berayed right eye is glowing and his more berayed left eye isn’t?

    I thought Polymaths were just good at normal stuff. I didn’t know they were also good at EYE RAYS!

    I am SO writing to the Mythbusters show, and asking them to test if you can shoot rays out of your eyes without frying them…

    This guy is obviously related to Ged:

    (note that at no point in the entire series does he ever fire lightning from his fingers. And that’s ignoring the whole skin-colour thing, covered here before.)

  9. Nix Says:

    Oh crap. Let’s try that again. Ged is here.

    Wow, I thought polymath was adding up parrots.

    Badoom-ta-tish – thankyouverramuch – I’m here till Tuesday. Try the veal.

    As awful as the cover is, I love that the author was apparently familiar with the term “polymath”. Seeing someone use that word makes up for the cover art…

    I’d say Zardoz has had some face work done, maybe a chemical peel and is wearing a toupee now. Good for Zardoz!

    Nothing says polymath like shooting at giant spacehead’s eyes so that the back his head explodes.

    Woke up in the morning with a bad headache — thought I’d take some aspirin — whamm, there went to medicine cabinet — wtf, waited a bit, wandered outside, whamm went the dog, dead, crusty, charred — and the house… Should probably go back to sleep.

    So that’s how Jor-el (Marlon Brando) captured Zodd!

    “Mr. Trump, how would you picture yourself as U.S. President, at work in the Oval Office?”
    “Like THIS!!”
