The "double dog dare" line is from one of my favorite X-mas movies, A Christmas Story. It was a "double dog dare" that prompted Ralphies friend (Flick?) to stick his tongue on a frozen pole. Just an attempt at humor, apparently unsuccessful.

This statement, reason #2, is really wild. I have to ask myself if you are purposefully mis-stating facts or are you simply misinformed.

This was taken from while doing a search on the Marvel/Sony settlement. As the owner of an Italian restaurant, my initial reaction is to believe someone with the last name Calamari :) I will take your advice and try to read "Comic Wars."

To purport mismanagment, slight of hand or under the table deals is complete fantasy. You might be correct in your fantastic conspiracy theory. But there is nothing to substantiate the theory. All my DD has shown CURRENT Marvel managment top be honest and trustworthy.

When my DD shows me otherwise I like to bring it to this boards attention. While doing a search on Toy Biz Worlwide I came upon a listing for Toy Biz International with the principal being Jeff Hsieh. It also seems odd to me that Jeff Hsieh's e-mail address in this listing ends with Not Toy Biz Worldwide, or Toy Biz International, but part of the Marvel subsidary Toy Biz. I thought finding info on a company that provides Marvel with such a large percentage of it licensing revenue would be easy, it's not. As the manufacturer of Spider-Man merchandise shouldn't they at least have their own web-site? (last attempt at humor:))

I have not always agreed with you, but you have earned my respect.
