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.

4-22-2020: Coloring Book Image #75 has been added to the Coloring Book Images Page!

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"! In it, there's an ambigram to see; you can switch between the words "Good" or "Evil" by rotating it 180 degrees! It stars Sabrina Pixie as "Good" & Pueblo the Destructive Alien as "Evil".

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!

8-31-2020: Still Image/Pocket Joke Page #23 has been uploaded, but it's currently under construction.

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.

9-19-2020: Coloring Book Image #81 has been uploaded to the Coloring Book Images Page!
