Remember the "spot the difference games" you played as a kid? You know, where you were challenged to spot the differences in a subtly altered version of the original image. Here's a website-based version of the game: compare a website's homepage earlier today with now to see if you can spot the subtle differences. (Be prepared to do some scrolling after clicking the first ink.)

As the subject website's homepage will change over time, the links above will eventually be replaced with screen-grabs.

Update: Master-baiter Chuck Spear apparently lured me into a cunning trap. It's a variation on the tried and true technique of using your face as bait when hunting wolverines.

Update II: With the updating of Google's cache the "earlier today" link above has changed. This post will be rewritten later today.

Update III: The new version of this post is here.

Today was a work day for me. I spent all of five minutes organising this post, which simply points to the before and after state of RB. Exactly how I was "trapped" is unclear -- I'm not the one who posted the crap and then removed it. If it's really a trap of some sort, Chucky should put the posts back up.

I'm confused - so you're Wolverine now? You mean kinda like how Bolt said George Bush was Batman?

Why would he need to? You've already promised us "screen grabs", presumably also acquired in the five minutes you spent on this non-event.

You're not fooling us behind your nerdy Clarke Kent-esque guise, Beck.

Well, you gotta give super-heroes credit, they do draw hot chicks. Sorta makes one want to get an overdose of gamma rays, or something, just to see if it'll work out. Then again, I've been X-rayed that many times and nothing magical has happened. Just my luck.

While we're on the subject, what's the deal with Batman and that voice?

Watch Terminator 4. That's just Christian Bale's action hero voice.

How is "Chuck A. Spear" a racist name? Unless there's a race of Spears somewhere that object to being hurled.

"Spearchucker" is an incredibly racist term for a "person of colour". Not so popular in this country, but very big amongst racist rabble in the UK and North America. Whether "Chuck" knew that when he choose his name or not, I have no idea. I'd suggest doing a google search for the term, but i wouldn't recommend it from a work computer.

Anon@2:26. Unless "Rue la Danny" is a massively racist term that I've never heard of, I'd say that's a little bit of difference, wouldn't you.
