Is Chill A Pinterest Clone Or A Good Social Video Discovery Site?

Chill.com has gone for a complete makeover and adopted the Pinterest look. It’s no longer the Turntable.fm for videos, but “Pinterest” for videos.

Download & Read Classic Comic Books Using Comic Books Archive & ComicRack

As a kid, I burned through a lot of hobbies and phases. There was the NES, pogs, trading cards, and I was huge on comic books.
