New additions

Just added my wife's blog to the sidebar, as well as my RSS feed for people who know how to use those things, and to encourage me to post more.

Also: new car next week, bank willing.

Quick Poll

Which science fiction/fantasy hero/villain is George W Bush?

Is he...

Captain Kirk? - Going boldly where no man has gone before. Using the Prime Directive as more a guideline than an iron-clad law to bring peace to war-torn worlds on behalf of the Federation.

Doctor Who? - Seemingly a bumbling amateur who somehow manages to resolve complex conflicts through a combination of misdirection and superior technology

Aragorn? - Son of a king who has spent years in the wilderness before claiming his rightful inheritance and uniting the free world against tyranny.

John Sheridan? - Nukes solve everything.

Sauron? - His eye is everywhere, and all he wants is ultimate power

Darth Vader? - The rebellion must be crushed at all costs

The Hulk? - You won't like him when he's angry

Elric? - Drug addled anti-hero who gains strength from a weapon of ultimate evil

The Cigarette Smoking Man? - The truth is out there, but not if he can help it

However, at Magic Casements last weekend I encountered the more solipsistic variety of geek who tending to slow down the panel sessions to a crawl while they aired their unkempt mindsets to the mutual discomfort of all. This article is a good summation of the perils of world wide geekdom.
