Work and money? Technology? Religion and Philosophy?

Is there a bank or credit union with branches/ATMs in Cleveland, OH that meets the following criteria?
  • Has all the expected features of online banking: see your balance, pay your bills, transfer, etc. Super great online banking, with features/interface similar to Quicken Online or would be a big big plus.
  • Allows its customers to use either Quicken Online or -- or another free online service -- to track their spending?
  • Since I freelance and am paid by paper check, it would be nice if they didn't sit on checks forever for no reason.

Films featuring shots with a gun pointed directly at the screen?

This question is for cinephiles: A filmmaker friend of mine is putting together a montage of film clips featuring shots or scenes where a gun is pointed directly at the screen. One example that immediately came to mind was the scene in GOODFELLAS where Lorraine Bracco is pointing a gun at Ray Liotta's face, and there are shots where she is pointing at gun at the screen. Does anyone know of other films featuring such shots? Thanks.

stick figures wanted

I'm trying to make a web-based app that involves, among other things, letting the user draw a simple sketch.

Is this doable? [more inside]

Looking for wordy bands

I'm a person who likes words more than anything else, even when I'm listening to music. I'm looking for indie bands to check out who are known for writing clever, literate, narrative-driven lyrics. I'm thinking of bands like The Mountain Goats, The Weakerthans, The Magnetic Fields, and the Hold Steady. Hell, I'll even throw The Decemberists in there for good measure. Have you MeFites got any suggestions?

Can't remember this cereal from the 1980s.

Does anyone remember this cereal from the 1980s? The commercial was for a hot cereal so gross-looking that the kids had to wear paper bags on their heads, but they said it was really great-tasting and chocolatey. Is this just my own imagination at work, or did it actually exist?
