    Americans like to make their own plans… which is tremendously inconvenient when we’ve already gone to the trouble of arranging out itinerary for your visit. Thanks a lot, America. Maybe you could have just told us in advance that you already had things planned!

    On a related note, you could check out these old political cartoons regarding America’s “plans” for Canada.

    I’m not super-fond of spandex, but I have to admit, it looks a lot less like straight up fighting crime in your jammies than this kid’s outfit.

    It’s kind of a Homestar thing he’s got going there.

    By the by, what are “Plans for the Cautilus-or whatever” that he’s got hanging all haphazardly out of his bag of evil schemes?

    Speaking of wearing underwear outside, I’ve always wondered: Is there a name for that little underwear thing that Superman and other heroes wear on the outside of their costumes? This probably indicates I don’t have enough to think about. 🙂

    Whatever the plans were, NGpm, they must have fallen through, because Google is stumped. The only thing popping up that isn’t trying to tell me I mean “nautilus” or “cautious” is a quote from Virgil’s Aeneid, and even that’s a false result, as the word in the quote is actually cautibus. Oh, and this blog, of course. So I guess we get to decide what Cautilus might mean.

    I think it should be what you call underwear worn outside spandex pants!
