interesting and maybe has some precedence, it is old, though.
you'd be surprised how much a nutsack can stretch. you have to stretch it yourself, not a woman. they don't do it quite right.

A lot of the chain maille folks have "permies". They're rarely made out of steel, so sometimes they won't set off metal detectors (the ones that use magnetic induction to sense metal). Most of the people I've read that have them are in other countries, though, so I don't know what problems USAian security would do with them, but being pulled aside is probably the worst of it. They did that for me when I was wearing my wrist brace (carpal tunnel flare + required travel != fun).
I'm generalizing from one example here, but everyone generalizes from one example. At least, I do.

He's a mildly pernicious supervillain, like a less theatrical and apocalyptic Dr Doom.  It's not stated explicitly, but it's pretty clear:

- Has his own Secret Crime Cave.

- Has superpowers -- eg, super-strength (note that he lifts the sleigh full of toys over his head), super-stealth, super-flexibility, and so on.

- Genius-level inventor (see the two Grinch sequel stories, both canonical).

- Pathological outsider, obsessed with monitoring and messing with the community.

- Really an antihero as much as a true villain.

- Featured in Marvel Comics.

- Was butchered in an effects-heavy but misguided live-action film.

It's all there.

I was remembering the two sequels.  One was Halloween-esque I think and the other is The Grinch Grinches the Cat In The Hat I think.  And damn you for bringing up that horrendous movie.

He doesn't really have friends.  But it made me think:  They say the Grinch's heart grew three artificial valves that day.

Scheduled For Early Delivery On:
    Thursday, 01/13/2011, By End of Day
Originally Scheduled For Delivery On:
    Friday, 01/14/2011, By End of Day

Last Location:
    Departed - Secaucus, NJ, United States, Wednesday, 01/12/2011

What does this mean? I don't usually track UPS packages, just FedEx, so this "early delivery" business is new to me. I'm assuming this is a Ground package, so it should take two days from NJ. Is that their way of saying, "If you're super lucky, it may arrive on the 13th"?
It's symbolic of our struggle against reality.

Maybe I'm just a cynic, but I think it means they think they've hit on a fantastic way to improve their on-time delivery statistics for marketing purposes. Namely, tell the customer it will arrive on a certain day, even though they know it won't take that long, then ... SURPRISE! ... let them know it'll arrive "early."

i get that all the time. when they first estimate delivery they go with a longer estimate. it usually arrives earlier than the first estimate. they just update the delivery date for your convenience.

always under promise and over deliver.
