You know, at first I was annoyed by your comments, then I realized that you are probably just a pathetic little boy who lives in Mommy and Daddy's basement.

I would love to know what pleasure cowards like you get from insulting everyone on the board, but this is probably the only interaction you have with other people, other than your calls to 900 numbers, so I should feel pity, rather than annoyance towards you.

Robochrist, put in those terms I agree with your comments completely. Just curious, what comics have you been reading? From your postings, I would take it that you are a fan of the Alan Moore/Grant Morrison type of comic.

The pleasure comes from your inevitable responses. I liked the 900-number bit.

"just as ours does everyday."

That was posted hastily because I'm at work.

Ah means, "as ours dictate our own actions everyday"

Not about Spider-Man, no, you've got me there. Have at it, Robo.

I also own a set of original Mies Van der Rohe chairs, but they need to be restored.

Eric,

"The pleasure comes from your inevitable responses."

And, of course, your own in turn. You've been more predictable than anyone on this board since god knows how many years you've been here.

What do you DO for a living, Eric? Embalm corpses?

Lastly, I own a set of paper mache furniture from Dresden or area, circa 1740 or so. They're interesting but not really to my taste. I am thinking of perhaps lending or donating them to a museum for display. There's an interesting collection of paper mache architectural elements at the Caramoor Art Center near Katonah, NY. I cannot too much impress upon admirers of the material the importance of a visit to this historic collection.

I provide assistive technology solutions to disabled and special needs K-12 students in the northeastern Illinois area, as well as supervise the special education district's staff of technicians and technology curriculum consultants.

You asked.

I went for a long walk over lunch and was thinking about who was the first super hero. While many would point to Superman, I think the concept of a powerful figure protecting others goes much further back than that.

My submission for the first super hero would probably be Gilgamesh. Sure, he generally acted like a jerk before meeting his buddy Enkidu but after the battle with the monster (a Bull of Heaven, I believe), he settled down and acted responsibly.

In Western Europe, I would probably say the first example would be Perseus for his rescue of Andromeda and the slaying of Medusa.

Contrary to what some have posted, the concept of the super hero has a very long and proud history.

If you're chronological, I rather think his dad Zeus, the keeper of liberty and order who fought the titans.

"I provide assistive technology solutions to disabled and special needs K-12 students"

I gather, then, you consider this board a mere extension of the disabled; and that suggests you must have a peculiar bearing around those disabled.

You're a sick bastard, man.

Yet, I must admit many IT people, in my experience, have been hollow and irascible; terrible communicators with "I've no reason to live and you've no RIGHT to live" slapped across their foreheads.

It's too bad you haven't commanded a more respectful bearing on this board, given whom you work for. I've done some freelance editing for a child psychologist who works for the county counseling troubled kids K-12.

It's equally troubling that you've had nothing more interesting to submit here in all this time, because you rarely seem intelligent at ALL - contrary to what's obviously really the case.

I guess you're just a fuckin' weirdo stuck in front of a monitor all day. 'Course that alone will make ANYONE weird.

No Rob, most people here are pretty normal. You are seriously immature, as your past postings have all-too-sickeningly revealed, but that's common in skiffy fandom.
