Batgirl.......go to the batroom and wash your batmouth

DC Pulls Comic With Batgirl Curses

For decades, the comics industry has fought against the perception that comics are for kids. DC Comics accidentally went too far in the other direction with the latest issue of its "All Star Batman & Robin the Boy Wonder," and now the offending issue is fetching big money on eBay.

In issue #10, Batgirl lets loose with a couple of words you can't say on TV, and the drug dealers she's confronting respond in kind with some serious profanity of their own. The offending words were supposed to have been blacked out, but the issue was inadvertently printed with two shades of black and the uncensored dialogue was readable in the final product.

DC Comics asked retailers to destroy the issue on receipt, but copies still made it into the hands of collectors. From there, many of those ended up on eBay where prices for the suddenly-rare comic hit triple digits.

Whose fault.... the person that wrote it or the person that didn't block it out?

The person that wrote it, unless they have an x rated edition.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
