@bloghomework I know thousands of jokes! Unfortunately, I can only think of most of them when something reminds me of one. My brain needs a better set of pathways to memories. What I can think of right now, are 2 jokes that I think I've already put up. 1. Three little old ladies are sitting on a park bench, feeding the birds. Suddenly a...

@bloghomework My top 5 all time songs will probably be a generation or two behind most peoples, but here we go! I tried to only pick one song from each artist, because they could easily be all Beatles or Elvis songs.

5. Whiter Shade of Pale - Procul Harem

4. Old Time of Rock and Roll - Bob Seger

3. Love Me Tender - Elvis

2. A Day...

Really wanna do this but cutting it down to 5 is borderline impossible lol

@bloghomework Well, I wish I had a truly inspiring or horrifying Valentine's Day story, but I don't. I've been single every time since 6th grade. I suppose what I CAN share is how I used to celebrate the day at my former job. I worked as a cashier at the local college. It's a smaller school, about 2000 students, and only...

It was the "What if" series from Marvel. What if "insert random comic event" never occurred? I recall one as What if the Avengers never formed a group? At the end, Iron man gives his life fighting the foe that was the reason the Avengers got together in the first place. Only since they didn't form, he has to fight alone and dies. The...

They relaunched it as part of their New52 reboot. I loves the shit out of those 19 glorious issues.

@oneimill There was another interesting series called Planet of Vampires.  It was put out by Atlas comics in 75.  I only ever had issue 2, and I can only find mention of 3 issues.  I liked it though.

@bloghomework Wow, that's a good question. It's so hard to pick just one. I've collected comics, coins and stamps since I was a kid. I've always loved board games. I like playing D&D. I love computer games. I love electronic games. I was always among the top bright kids in my class. I didn't drink until I was 23...

@wizard0 And they really do nail you with the comics. We have a sidekick store here that carries back issues, and not just crap, but worthwhile stuff. Most of the DC titles I follow are 2.99 a month, or 20/year which is really not bad. They usually only send you the normal versions of the special episodes, which I find a little chintzy,(wouldn't you want to reward your subscribers with the more extravagant and rare editions? Not if you want to make money. Duh. No one ever said I wasn't naive.) But that is cool that you managed to hold on to a significant piece of your collection. I actually did more damage to myself. What I didn't sell to feed my self-destructive habits, I often threw away, gave away, or sold for a tiny fraction of its worth, simply because it reminded me of times I would rather have forgotten. Oh well. Such is the past. You learn to let it go, or you go swirling down the drain with it. Am I right?

@wizardo, you also mention being one of the brightest kids in class. I was a prodigy, straight up Doogie Howser style. They were prepared to let me skip several years of school, but I was too scared to be that much younger than my peers. I managed to deal with skipping one, by the fourth grade they tired of "letting me work at my own pace" and "setting my own curriculum" and sent me to college at the age of 10. I was in GATE and Odyssey of the Mind and all of those things that make you an intellectual giant and a social midget. When my parents had some financial troubles, their pride wouldn't let them accept me getting help via scholarship, etc, to continue at the private school. So off I went to public school, as socially inept as a child can possibly be. Four years later, I was deliberately flunking out of most everything, wearing only black clothes and bubbling over with rage. I may be rambling a bit again, but kudos to you for embracing your inner "geek" instead of fighting it and suffering for it. 

Three little old ladies were sitting on a park bench, feeding the birds. Suddenly a man in a trenchcoat jumped out of the bushes and flashed them! Well, the first little old lady had a stroke. Then the second little old lady had a stroke. But the third little old lady wouldn't touch it.
