1-28-2020: Still Image/Pocket Joke Page #21 is finally full with 25 cartoons, so I'll be taking a well deserved break from that section for a few months. I reused an image I made for 1 of my typed commentaries because honestly, I could hardly think of a new pocket joke during this update!

1-30-2020: Added 2 new mini-animations to the Mini-Animations Page: "Danielle Lipstick & the Teddy Bear: The Shodd Version!" & "Michelle Lipstick & the Rubber Ducky: The Shodd Version!" They're both perfect time loops! The Mini-Animations Page now has 100 animations! I think I'll take break from this section for a while to create some new puzzles for this year - 2020!

2-7-2020: Uploaded a new greeting card for Valentine's Day onto the Greeting Cards Page: "Romantic Vs. Unromantic"! Remember that you can find it in the Extra Section!

2-10-2020: Added a new puzzle game to the Puzzles & Games Page: "Watergirl's Pipe Maze"!

2-11-2020: Discovered another math trick for the Math Section: "Tricky Transposition!" I also added another bonus fact about the angles of imaginary & complex numbers! If you square a complex number, then something interesting happens to the angle...

2-13-2020: Added a new puzzle game to the Puzzles & Games Page: "Miss IBM's Alternative Addition!"

2-17-2020: I added more information about the inverse of the -illion function in the Math Section; it explains more about the remainer in the quotient when you divide by 3, if there is a remainer. Coloring Book Image #72 has also been added to the Coloring Book Images Page!

2-28-2020: Uploaded a new greeting card into the Various Category of the Greeting Cards Page: "Dr. Foolish Proves That Even A Genius Doesn't Know Everything!"; this specific greeting card is for student graduations.

4-29-2020: I added a note to the bonus fact about the -illion function in the Math Section, because I just recently tried plugging in a negative number into the variable x and then the function lost its accuracy! Remember to use appropriate numbers in functions, mathematicians, or the functions will NOT be accurate; besides, there's no such thing as having -3 apples! (Negative 3 apples, unless the word negative is describing the apples somehow!)

5-4-2020: Added another bonus fact about logarithms in the Math Section! It has something to do with the powers of 10...

5-31-2020: Coloring Book Images #76 & #77 have been uploaded to the Coloring Book Images Page!

7-9-2020: I decided to create my 13th Anniversary cartoon early this year to fill up the Still Image/Pocket Joke Section with 550 cartoons! Now that Still Image/Pocket Joke Page #22 is full with 25 cartoons, I'll be taking another well-deserved break from that section to focus on making some more puzzle games, greeting cards & hopefully a 102nd mini-animation!

7-12-2020: Coloring Book Image #79 has been uploaded to the Coloring Book Images Page! I also decided to use exclamation points on the subset links in the Extra Section, so you'll know which ones have a new or updated feature! Finally, I added another bonus fact in the Math Section about the numeric derivative of the function y = x2. (A special image of T.V. Man included!)

7-14-2020: Discovered another math trick for the Math Section: "Super Summation 8"!

7-15-2020: Added a special Flash file to the Special Flash File Subset of the Extra Section: "Good or Evil Oval"!

8-2-2020: I added 2 more columns to the 1st truth table about moral confusion on the Web Page entitled: "Moral Confusion & the Morality Paradox" to show that contradictions are always false. See the actual Web Page & click on that angel-devil image to see the truth table for more information. And in the Links Subset of the Extra Section, I posted a note saying that I won't be adding any more posts to my Quora account due to the moderators & owners of that Website starting to target me. You can see an essay on my Wordpress account for more information...

8-3-2020: Uploaded a special cartoon for the Special Joke Subset of the Extra Section: "Difference Vs. Similarity starring the Squashington Sextuplets!" I also had to type a note on 1 of my puzzle games that was made in the year 2008, which is called "Derek & the Dangerous Dice". I recently learned an interesting fact about dice, real dice: If you add the numbers of dots on parallel sides, the sum is always 7.

8-5-2020: I uploaded my 102nd mini-animation to the Mini-Animations Page: "Friendly Fire Immunity Spaces"! I think I'll take a long, well-deserved break from animating, so there won't be any more new mini-animations for the rest of the year. Animating is much more difficult than just drawing! Trust me... Also, thanks for 221,000 Hits!

8-6-2020: Discovered another math trick for the Math Section: "Impossible Equations"!

8-10-2020: The link to the Helia Website has been deleted since that Website no longer exists. I don't know what happened to the owner, but he stopped updating his Website a few years ago. Now his site has been deleted from the Internet.

8-13-2020: How embarrassing! In 1 of my older puzzle games from the year 2010, there was a miscalculation in the answer! And all this time, I didn't know! The name of this puzzle game is: "Mass Multiplication or Wacky Weight-Changing Women". In my Microsoft Excel spreadsheet file in respect to this puzzle's solution, the program didn't multiply by the correct number when it was supposed to multiply by 4 or 4 cubed, which is 64; so I had to fix the solution of this puzzle to make it correct. And about those non-integers in decimal form, forget it; I decided to just stick with fractions/mixed numbers after fixing the solution since they're rational! However, even in decimal form, it's still the same correct answer, so don't worry about it.

I also posted a bonus fact about dividing fractions in the Math Section! It has something to do with reciprocals...

8-19-2020: Discovered another trick for the Math Section: "The Square Roots of the Powers of 2"!

8-21-2020: Uploaded a new greeting card for Halloween onto the Greeting Cards Page: "Derek the Couch Potato"!

8-22-2020: Uploaded a new greeting card for a kid's 12th birthday: "The Squashington Sextuplets & the Number 12" onto the Greeting Cards Page! Remember that you can find the Greeting Cards Page in the Extra Section!

9-3-2020: Still Image/Pocket Joke Page #23 is ready for viewing! I also decided that maybe I'll just be much more careful about what I post at that Q&A Website Quora.com so I updated that message in the Links Subset of the Extra Section. If I get blocked from there again for whatever reason, then I'll just stick with Wordpress from that point onward!

9-5-2020: I updated the Web page about the irrational number Phi(Φ) in the Math Section! There's a little bit more information about what happens when you multiply each number in the algebraic fraction! Please see that Web page for more details.

9-18-2020: I uploaded 2 more images about division & fractions in the Math Section! 1 of them stars Derek Cyannus Jr.! You can find them in the latest bonus fact I posted so far.

10-26-2020: Uploaded a new game to the Puzzles & Games Page: "Penny Pincher's Pedal Petting!" It has no specific challenge, but you can control Penny with the action buttons as she caresses her pet Bankster the Rainbow Caterpillar with her prehensile foot! Also uploaded Coloring Book Image #84!
