    I think Superman always plays stud poker……


    When he was first caught reading cards with his X-ray vision, the tabloids dubbed him “The Man of Stealing.”


    but I…. um….. blush to admit….. I’ve got nothing else up my sleeve cos I don’t know who that guy in the wheelchair is….

    That’s Professor Xavier of the X-Men.

    @SusanSunshine

    Pretend this print is small like yours (I don’t know how to do that), and though I’m not going to blush, I, ah, you know, like, man, I, I didn’t know either. OK, there, I said it. If I could do that small print thing, I could have used it in my alleged pot growing confession the other day.

    Whenever you want to know how someone did something clever such as SusanSunshine did, right-click the page, and select “view source”. (The precise wording varies among browsers, but “source” is what you want.) If you don’t see the comment right away in the resulting new window, click ctrl-F (i.e. open “Find”) and type in a key word, e.g. in the above example “blush”.

    actually, it reminds me of a joke involving superman, wonder woman and the invisible man. the punchline is “I don’t know but my butt is killing me!”

    Ronald Davis, I haven’t tried it since the merger, but before that, doing what you suggest was useless. They replaced code for such things with the html and if you typed html directly, it was stripped.

    Dogsniff, replace the curly brackets below with angle brackets and presto, whatever the TEXT was is small.
    {small}TEXT{/small}

    How about if they line the backs of the cards with a film of lead?


    Thank you Dogsniff and Ronald Davis for your advice(s). Always love to learn new tricks.

    @Ronald Davis: You wouldn’t happen to be the Ronald Davis that worked at AEP would you?

    Chinese made playing cards would foil Superman with their lead content, not so sure about Xavier.

    Thanks to my staple diet of Marvel comics as a kid (see my comment at Calvin & Hobbes) I did recognize Xavier. However, I was surprised to learn that neither Patrick Stewart or Ian McKellen had a clue what they were doing at the end of the Xmen movie since neither play chess!
