The way the deadline works: if deadline is on a Sunday and your image is posted on that Sunday 23:59 your local time it's a good entry.
In fact - as long there is Sunday somewhere on the planet your entry is ok. I will make the poll sometimes Monday afternoon my time (GMT +2) yet i'll have a look at the last entries.

Might have to give this one a go...
Incase others are wondering (as I was), a Toreador is the same as a Matador.
The word toreador is used in English to designate the main performer of Spanish-style bullfighting, who taunts and kills the bull. This word, which roughly translates as "bull handler", is not used in Spain or Latin America, where that role is called matador ("killer") or torero.

According to Sherlock's dictionary:
toreador n : someone who fights bulls [syn: bullfighter]
According to WhiteWolf:
Heavily makeuped, black garbed pretentious teenager whom believes oneself to be a vampire.
Oh this one's gonna be cute.

I believe the official difference between the Toreador and Matador (which stem from the root words "taurus" and "matar" respectively) is that the Toreador are bull fighters, whereas the Matador is a specialized Toreador who actually -kills- the bulls (with a sword).
Hope that helps.
(Oh, are we allowed to use the WoW definition of Toreador or are we strictly staying to RL terminology??)
I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way...

GriNGoLoCo:Wikipedia is an online dictionary where anybody from around the world can edit an entry. Thus there is no guarantee that someting is correct but since there are literally millions of people who use it, people will correct a mistake quickly. So BlueMech meant you should go to Wikipedia and improve the entry buy correcting the mistake. That's all.
You look very serious in that portrait, how about a smile
Just kidding, but smiling improves peoples moods and it is oh so easy to smile!

I think you've got the deadline wrong. Also, can it be a robotic bull?
June 26th, 2006 #11
Noooooo, BeamUs, you got my idea!!! Ha, yes, I'm sure you can make it a robotic bull, that's what I had in mind. I also was thinking of making the fighter a robot, but I'm not sure yet. Simply don't make him Spanish, that's all that is required.

Well remember that the bull is not necessary- the focus should be on the bullfighter. I was thinking that if you want to succeed in doing that only one leg of the bull should be showing.
I'm not doing a robotic one but it's still going to be far from ordinary.
By the way, what's the deal with the deadline?
