satisfy your sweet tooth with unusual treats from this site.
Order all the Pocky you want, or be adventurous and try
some Kasugai Green Tea candy.
Any old-school skateboarder can tell you the benefits of reading a magazine like Thrasher.
You can get skate tips, athlete profiles and deck buying advice. If you skate at all, then
there's probably something useful for you to read in Thrasher.
Dr. Seuss Went to War
Dr. Seuss wasn't just concerned with green eggs and ham.
In fact, before he began writing children's stories he was drawing
political cartoons as the chief editorial cartoonist for the New York newspaper PM.
The site has over 200 drawings from Dr. Seuss covering topics such as
war bonds, Hitler and other elements of World War II. It's very disturbing in a way to spot
Seuss-like characters in the throes of war and ethnic stereotypes.

They Drew Fire
While some soldiers fought during World War II, others painted the scenes of death and
destruction. These "combat artists" included more than 100 U.S. servicemen and civilians
who painted and drew over 12,000 pieces of art. As a companion site to the PBS documentary They Drew
Fire, you can browse through the art gallery or learn more about the artists who
waged war with their paintbrushes.
