The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades

Today at work, a discussion about politics invariably starts among a group of five people.

Everyone notices my presence and one asks, "Who are you going to vote for, Peter?  Romney?  Obama?"

Nope.  Gary Johnson.

Three of the five suddenly high five me.

One of the holdouts asks, "Who's Gary Johnson?"

The three begin telling him about the Libertarian Party and start trying to convert him.

This is significant because, just a few months ago, no one at work had any clue there were more than two parties.

Now, three of them not only have heard of the Libertarians, but are congratulating me and welcoming me to the herd.

Come on, 5%....

Sine Timore Early Warning System: Mars Attacks Meets Honey Boo Boo

At the New York Comic Con, there was a fast blurb that IDW, hip deep in Mars Attacks! crossovers, was working on a Mars Attacks! Honey Boo Boo comic.

Many, including myself, hoped and prayed it was a joke.

The Long Beach Comic Con is going on right now.

IDW has repeated it is working on a Mars Attacks! Honey Boo Boo comic.

My God...they might actually be serious....
