Bounding from obsession to obsession.
Girls who buy own dice = HOTJust sayin'...
I don't even read those particular comics and I probably would have joined in.But then I'm used to discussions at work about Supersuit designs (it's my job to build them, since I'm the physics major), our plans for what to do if zombies attack (head straight for Costco and take it over because it has everything we need) and who would win, ninja's or pirates? (do the pirates have guns or just swords?).........and I'm not sure how normal that is in work environments that aren't dominated by under 30's.
I'm with hippokrene - Hulk's intelligence (or lack there of) is very pertinent...On my more cynical days, I'd also want to know who is writing it and for what book.But generally my money's on Spidey. Faster, smarter, more focussed.
Spidey doesn't stand a chance against any non-Savage version of the Hulk. The Hulk would be too smart to fall for an obvious trap, wouldn't get tired, and Spider-man's quips would only make him madder.Against Savage Hulk, though, Spidey has a chance.
Hi Ragnell,The answer is, obviously, Spider-Man, and not only for manual dexterity. As my third-grade teacher would have said, "He's got Smarts."My dice are actually Quite Lovely, a pretty red-and-purple sheened set. Unfortunately, the game I was going to play fell through. Now, I'm a dice owner without a game. V. Sad Indeed!Thanks for this! This was a fantastic thing to see first thing in the morning!Ciao,Amy
I'm a little annoyed at the implication that a hot girl in a comic shop is special.. cuz it's like.. so a girl in a comic shop would normally not be pretty? :\I dunno I just hate it when geek girls only count if they're "hot" :|Which I totally am btw XD>.>;;<.<;;Oh! And Spider-Man! B/c unless the Hulk surprised him and tore him in half before he could move XD Spider-Man would drag the fight out until he figured out a way to stop the Hulk. :DIt's the same reason why I think Batman would win any fight that he wasn't immediately killed in XD Esp if he had time to prepare, then he'd definitely win! *nods*But even if he was surprised, if he can get his footing and drag the fight out, he'd eventually win :)>.>;;Sorry for rambling :(*hides*
My dice are actually Quite Lovely, a pretty red-and-purple sheened set. Unfortunately, the game I was going to play fell through. Now, I'm a dice owner without a game. V. Sad Indeed!Tell me about it. I was a hardcore World of Darkness gamer, and what does White Wolf go and do?To add insult to injury, I'm now attending a college where RPGs (and non-manga comics) are decidedly unpopular. I've inquired after a gamne, only to be told the only resident GM favors Hackmaster.gdramj - the sound of someone swallowing her dice.
Before Civil War I'd have said Spider-man metatextually. Using the Marvel hero vs hero standard, where one hero is in the right and the other is in the wrong on a misunderstanding, Spider-man is far more likely to be in the right and the one the editor lets win.But that whole thing with Captain America has me confused now, so I'm not sure.Arwynn -- Try finding an online game. That's what I did.
I have to say that both my wife and I found the song a riot.(A bit of context. I was playing the song to hear it, and my wife -- a D&D geek but not an avowed comics geek (although she reads more online comics than I do) -- came in to listen to it, and laughed all the way through. Their "Prefix" song, which YouTube led me to, is funny, too. At least is was for this copy editor; who knows if it'd hit the right buttons for someone not so word-oriented.
For an ex-copy-editor, I sure am sloppy with the close-parentheses. Must be the tequila. Here it is: )
Hi Arynne,To add insult to injury, I'm now attending a college where RPGs (and non-manga comics) are decidedly unpopular. I've inquired after a gamne, only to be told the only resident GM favors Hackmaster.Same here, although they're Quite Popular among the graduate student population (have to procrastinate on that dissertation *somehow*).Our game basically has shut down because 1) some people have gotten jobs (!!!) and are Moving Away, and 2) those not moving are having babies, and can't game anymore because of time constraints.Let me say here that *I was the only woman playing*, and the having babies thing has *nothing* to do with me.Just a bit Ironic, I think.gdramj - the sound of someone swallowing her dice.Mine are sitting on my Wonder Woman action figure shelf, gathering dust. A sad testament to my attempt to go to That Next Level Of Girl-Geekdom. And Mr. Reads was so proud, too, the day we bought me My Own Dice.Ciao,Amy
We've got a couple of women playing our D&D game -- one's my wife (we're on the child-free plan) and the other is a friend whose husband also plays. Other than my wife and I, every one of us has kids. It feels kinda weird to be in the minority on that, but I guess I should get used to it as I get older.
"What would the Flash do?" As back-up from the other singers? Hilarious.
only to be told the only resident GM favors Hackmaster.Can you get them to move to Phoenix, I could use another potential player...
Hi Rob,We've got a couple of women playing our D&D game -- one's my wife (we're on the child-free plan) and the other is a friend whose husband also plays. Other than my wife and I, every one of us has kids. It feels kinda weird to be in the minority on that, but I guess I should get used to it as I get older.Mr. Reads and I are on the "children maybe later we are Quite Happy with our Dog" plan at the moment, but we are in the minority on that here.Mr. Reads and I were both set to play. This game was to alternate with their (the boys') D&D game, and thus added a few people (me, namely). The DM is the one who is moving, so I can sort of understand losing the game.For lack of DM, they may just move to some tabletop gaming, and have invited me along, but I wanted a RPG, so I think I might pass.Ah well.Ciao,Amy
"I'm a little annoyed at the implication that a hot girl in a comic shop is special.."I thought it was more of a gentle satire on socially maladjusted fanboys whose logic circuits fry in the presence of women who contradict their preconceived notions (a la Norman in "I Mudd")."To add insult to injury, I'm now attending a college where RPGs (and non-manga comics) are decidedly unpopular."Millions of years ago (when men were men and giants walked the earth), I attended a Socially Conservative Protestant University. As a freshman, I went to a meeting of something called "The Gaming Society" hoping to find RPGers. I was disappointed to see a couple of guys sitting at a table with Monopoly, Game of Life, etc. The president of the society then got up and carefully shut the door before asking us conspiratorially if we all had our own dice (nudge, nudge, wink, wink). When we acknowledged that we did, he put away the board games props and brought out AD&D from his backpack.
*blows dust of her blue, marbled ten-siders* *reminisces 'til her eyes mist* Those were the days, my friend..
Wow. Tripod being mentioned on an American board? That's awesome.Guys like them make one proud to be an Australian.
