I received a curious e-mail the other day from a reader named “Helen.”

Hi,
I found your site today, and I think I might know why it says “tipst” on the t-shirt in the pic you posted on Sept 4

My guess is this: they’re referring to the French teen clothes label Tipster. Just a thought. =)

The thought never actually occured to me. Of course, I know as much about fashion as I do about life on Mars, so it doesn’t bother me that much. The most surprising thing is that Helen actually emailed me about it instead of stabbing her eyes out from reading my site – I’m impressed. Anyway, thanks for the tipst Helen.

Just when I thought that would be the only email I’d get about my site for the rest of the year, Le Champ sent me the picture on the left from Tekkaman Blade

with the following email:

I was rewatching some Tekkaman Blade, and I saw something to further prove your theory about anime and reality. This anime takes place at least 200 years in the future and in a secret military research base in Alaska, they have to use a computer with two 5.25 inch floppy drives. Looking at some of the equipment at work, I can easily see this happening.

You know you’re doing something right when people are trying to prove your theories.

The pic on the right from Future GPX Cyber Formula 11 is curiouser and curiouser since we have actual product names rather than slight variations. Now we know who’s really pulling the strings…

While I start working on my next theory, occupy your thought processes with the shiny Pic of the Week.
