Contributing to society for a little while, "World of Warcraft" players last week staged an annual event to raise funds for the Cleveland Clinic's breast cancer research. Specifically, the money will benefit the Clinic's work on the Tuohy vaccine.
The Running of Gnomes saw more than 1,000 characters running through all sorts of dangerous terrain - like Stranglethorn Vale - toward Booty Bay. According to one writer, and for those interested in the more illustrative details of the race, the gnomes formed a giant heart when they arrived at Booty Bay.
It was beautiful.
Science fiction has fascinated us with the idea of alternate worlds and parallel universes.
What if it were all true? Would we have counterparts in the other places? What would be the same and what would be different?

The Mansfield Reformatory- one of the oldest and most notorious prisons in the state of Ohio- is opening its doors this weekend for uber scary "Haunted House" style tours.
On Friday, Nov. 1 and Saturday, Nov. 2 Ohioans looking for a good scare can venture in to the depths of the prison, led by a guide, and experience a reformatory scare fest, complete with actors, animatronics, and props.
While many of the night's thrills may be planned, guests should also keep their eyes peeled for real ghost sighting, as the prison is said to be one of the truly haunted places here in Northeast Ohio.
It's no surprise, really, since the prison had a reputation for abuse, torture, and even murder during its heyday.
To whet your whistle for this weekend, here are some awesomely eerie photos of the Mansfield Reformatory.

The Architect, Ronald Sarstedt, told Naymik that the plan is "so simple," yet he expects most people to be afraid of it. His plan envisions a road through what is now the Ohio City gardens to connect Franklin Boulevard and W. 24th Street, the potholed little conduit which typically becomes an overflow parking lot on Saturdays.
Sarstedt's plan is certainly bold, but Naymik acknowledges that any re-imagining of W. 25th would be much more costly (logistically, fiscally, emotionally) as it's a major vehicle artery into downtown and West Side neighborhoods.
Given that we live at a time when some schmuck puts up a YouTube video and becomes a star, you gotta admire the way Langhorne Slim went about things. Unlike all those overnight sensations, he’s earned his fame. The guy’s gotten mad props for last year’s The Way We Move, a folk-rock album that Rolling Stone magazine said was “damn near perfect,” and started playing to bigger and bigger audiences. He and his band the Law perform at the Beachland Ballroom on Monday.
Slim, who says he’s been making music since he “popped out” grew up in the tiny town of Langhorne, Penn. (hence his moniker) and never quite felt in sync with the city where there wasn’t really any music scene to speak of.
“The scene was for me to feel slightly out of place,” he says. “It’s not fun at the time but it pushes you to find that outlet. I knew I was a feeling person. In not having a lot to do or relate to, I discovered a deep love for music and guitar and spent a lot of time listening and playing.”
