Seinfeld New Yorker Pig Cartoon

In the Seinfeld episode "The Cartoon" Elaine submits a cartoon idea to the New Yorker (that she steals from Ziggy). It depicted a pig at a complaint department saying "I wish I was taller". I'd like a copy to print out for my cubicle but can't find it anywhere.

What website will give the last common ancestor of two species?

Is there a website out there where I can enter the names of two species and be given the approximate date when their last common ancestor lived? Bonus points if it tells me what sort of species this ancestor probably was, and for showing me the part of the tree of life relating to these species. Thanks!

Can't access one specific site

How do I refresh someone else's IP? I can't load a specific site I usually access every day when I am connected to my home ISP, although I can get to the site when I'm at work and on my smartphone. Absolutely NONE of my browsers can load the site, even those which I've never uised to visit the site before. When I contacted my ISP tonight, the tech said that he could access the same site from his computer, so it doesn't appear to be a DNS issue there. I have no problems loading any other sites on my browsers. What gives? [more inside]

CMS Made Simple... I hope

Due to a fiasco involving a failed service provider, I have to put together a small (5-10 pages) website in the next 72 hours. Since the domain name is still under the contractor's control and resides on her server, I must use CMS Made Simple (which is fine, given the need to update the site regularly). Otherwise it's a completely blank slate... and so am I. [more inside]

Savannah during Christmas

Husband and I are thinking of going to Savannah, Georgia during the Christmas holidays. The threads here on Savannah as to where to go and eat have been very helpful. My question is, if we plan to arrive in Savannah on Christmas Day and stay for about 5, 6 days, will the shops and restaurants be open during that period? Or will they likely be closed for the holidays. Oh, we'll probably drive to Charleston too, so it would be helpful to know if the city closes down during the holiday season as well. Thanks!

Exit Stage Left

Does anyone know if there is, or ever has been, a recognized significance in a character's exiting stage right or stage left? Like, do bad guys typically exit stage left, etc. I know almost nothing about theatre, and this seems like it would be an esoteric trope or something. TIA.

Who made this plate?

Anyone have any idea who made this plate? I recently found a beautiful plate at a charity shop, but half of the maker's mark has worn off. It is cream with 3 hand painted orange-red poppies and a green edge, and I think it may be from the 1930s. I don't think it's particularly valuable, but I'd like to see if I can find anything to match it. There are a few pictures on my Flickr page. I've tried Googling, but haven't found anything yet.

Anyone know of an online program that will let me rotate an image by degrees?

I have a photo that I want to rotate a couple of degrees, but all I have on my computer is Paint which will only do it 90 or 180 degrees. I don't want to download a program because this is my work computer, but I don't want to wait till I get home, as I don't have internet access at the moment. Is there something online similar to Photobucket that will let me upload a photo and then edit it, and that is able to custom rotate images? I've tried googling but can't find anything. Any help greatly appreciated!
