The Fall Of Man Was Caused By An Apple
Because apples are evil.
Coincidence? I don't think so.
As a computer technician, I can't stand Apple's proprietary approach to their products. Be that as it may, I still own one of their iPhones.
I know, I'm a hypocrite. Sue me.
This brings us to the real point of this post.
Marvel Comics' app for my phone and I've been re-reading some old X-Men comics from my youth. Now, I haven't read comics in a long time so it was kind of a eye opening experience for me. I remember comics being nothing but muscular guys and big boobed women in goofy outfits punching each other. However, I crack up when I read them now because the characters have these long diatribes on every page. It's like the writers are trying to turn the books into works of Shakespeare or something. It's even better when you realize that they are giving the grandiose speeches while wearing goofy outfits and punching each other.
Oh well, nothing from your childhood is like you remember it. Well, except for that girl I had a crush on in seventh grade. Screw you guys, she's still perfect!
1) Mrs. Penguin says that I was a nerd then, and I'm still a nerd now. With the computer references and all the comic book talk, I have to agree with her.
2) The girl from seventh grade may have been hot but not as hot as Psylocke. She's the real reason I started re-reading those old comics. Don't judge me!
"Don't judge me". Hmmm, I think I just found my new signature phrase.
Don't judge me,
