Nerd Alert


The Onion reminds us of the dangers of a geeky President.

Actually, what's really sad is how many references I got in that article. And really, why shouldn't our foreign policy be based around Secret Wars?

(sputter) Roy Thomas!?!? His so-called 'writing' is merely an adaptation of the original Robert E. Howard short story! Nerds these days...

I know- in my day, we turned out a better class of nerd. (: There are just too many distractions these days-- kids are social networking, when they should be hunkered down with their back issues, their Star Trek VHS cassettes, and their Atari 2600 editions of of Dragon's Lair.

Honestly, I'm not sure today's nerds could pick Brent Spiner out of a line-up.

Heh, I forgot how much fun it is to switch into self-righteous fanboy mode! I should really go back and re-read the Conan stories -- I recently picked up Savage Tales of Solomon Kane, which I highly recommend.
