Comment on Zamyatin’s tangible threat that 2+2=4 [yikes] by Neil

This reminds me of a scene in an old "Elseworlds" Superman Annual. Superman: The Man of Steel Annual #3 to be exact. In the story, Superman is merely another Kryptonian who fled from Krypton before it exploded. The population settled on earth, and the subsequent superpowers which that population developed (and their superior technology) allowed the Kryptonians to rule over humanity. The Kryptonians are very xenophobic and view humans as an inferior species. Despite this, they are very scientific and store most all data in a computer grid. The real turning point of the story is when Batman (who is a dedicated underground fighter) finds some old construction blueprints in paper form. He comments that the paper records are real, and served as a testament to human kind, as contrasted with the technology loving Kryptonians who saw no use for such relics. The records allowed him to circumvent the Kryptonian computer systems and helped the resistance movement succeed in freeing the planet.

Glad to hear from you Vic, I was sort of afraid that because I'd gone for some time and had subsequently been saturated by Jane for awhile, that I missed out on the small Wordpress community I'd enjoyed awhile back. This is my favorite of the free templates: I think it looks smart, relaxing, easy-to-navigate, and [most importantly] not bloglike. It could pass as a website-proper if it had to. The widgets are great in terms of ease, but their flexibility is limited because of the--even though simple-seeming--two-column structure of the blog. I actually bought space at http://s-is-for-somewhere.com so I could sort of liberate myself from it -- it is a Wordpress-based blog, but when you install it yourself you get some freedoms. The only problem is that it takes a lot longer to setup.
