I'm telling you, Vanyarin's the way to go. They have a blameless track record, unlike those fucking overreacting Noldor.

For some reason drama seems to always happen at my work place when I'm at a different location, or off that day :/ Every Monday I work at a different location, but we had a meeting at my location tonight.

First thing my one co-worker said to me when she saw me was, "I wanted to just get in my truck today, come pick you up and then we go find another job". Supposedly more craziness happened while I was gone today, and I'll be finding out what happened tomorrow morning. Guess I'm sort of the peace keeper there :/

I drank an Amp about an hour ago, whereafter twice I felt the need to check the symptoms of caffeine overdosing.


...How have I not be institutionalized before now.

So there's an Iron Man 3 trailer out there and it's blowing up my inbox & twitter feed. There's a ton of potential from what I've seen, it's just a matter of it delivering. It's certainly seems "darker" than the previous 2 movies, which is fine, because one can only stomach Iron Man flying around to AC/DC for so long. That and given the final fight scene in the Avengers (which is referred to, nice), Tony should be a little shoken up.

In other news, anyone else catch the season finale to Adventure Time yesterday? Bizarre stuff right there.

Thunderbird spell-check doesn't like Spiderman, but Batman and Superman are OK.

That's because it is Spider-man.

EDIT - I've never really thought about why that is hyphenated and other superheroes aren't. Hmmm.

Because Spider-Man's a down-to-Earth hero with real life punctuation?

Actually, because Stan Lee wanted him to stand out in the crowd. From google:

:Spider-Man’s name has a hyphen because Stan Lee, who created the comic character with Steve Ditko, apparently wanted to distinguish him from Superman.

In a Feb. 24, 2010, comment on Twitter, Lee wrote: “Spidey’s official name has a hyphen—‘Spider-Man.’ Know why? When I first dreamed him up I didn’t want anyone confusing him with Superman!”:



Makes (spider-)sense. Also Spidey being handled way better as a character and a concept helped.

Nonsense. Silver Age Superman is the most well-written and sensibly handled character in all of literature.
