Okay, You’ve Got Super Powers. Now What?

Admit it. If you were a guy who went through puberty there was that one night, when no one was around, when you thought “Gee, I wish I could turn invisible. I’d freaking live in the girl’s locker room.” Or maybe you thought “If I had super strength I’d show that bully Tommy Thompson a thing or three.” I don’t know what pubescent girls dream of, I’ve never been one. Maybe that would be a cool super power. Change into anyone at any time, ala Mystique, but with the ability…

The Road to Hell and All That

Today I am gong to share with you an idea that was lifted directly from the Staggeringly Bad Ideas Handbook. This is even worse than Montana’s “Kill it and Grill it” law which allows people to eat, possibly diseased, road kill. This is dumber than North Carolina’s attempt to outlaw gay marriage. They ended up stripping the rights of any unwed couple, gay, straight or mixed. One of the laughably predictable unintended consequences of that are that kids of divorced parents now have no rights since their parents aren’t married.…

Super Duper

Okay, time to get your geek on. As some of you may remember I’ve got a buddy who’s working on the Batman -vs- Superman flick. She loves me like a puppy and STILL won’t dish any hot gossip. However, the couple of things she did share all proved true. Right now she’s admitted that Batman will be wearing armor and not just tights. Which makes sense if he’s going to fight Superman. The fight, which has to happen to justify the title, should be near the beginning of the movie.…

U NO B STOOPID

Stupid is as stupid does, goes the modern aphorism. Or, as Ron White famously put it, you can’t fix stupid. But, God help me, I am going to try. Let’s get some of the obvious ones out of the way. There are no Nigerian princes, or princesses, hanging on to a couple of mil that they just need to deposit in your bank account. Quit encouraging them. Also, bonus, if you do fall for that scam you can go to jail for money laundering, among other crimes. So, yes, it…

This Sounds Like Fun

Before we begin today, I need to take a moment to stare goggle eyed at Florida. At St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach a kid, and I mean teenager, passed himself off as a doctor. Not just any doctor either. He pretended to be an OB/GYN. That’s right, a young man, who turns out to be off his meds, was presenting himself to patients as a doctor. Fortunately he was too incompetent or scared to actually to treat a human so no harm was done. But how does…

The Day Dr. King Saved Star Trek!

Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Fox News will celebrate by pronouncing racism dead and telling everyone to move along as there’s nothing to see there. Most everyone else will recite his “I Have A Dream” speech while completely missing the point. A few of you will remember his Drum Major speech and be reminded how grounded he was. But, all that aside, Dr. King had a profound effect on our culture that you may not be aware of. If it wasn’t for him Star Trek would probably be…
