      Good place to meet girls with low self-esteem, too.

      *cough*



    You wanna date Sean Shannon?



Thanks Palp. That is one of the funnest things I have read today

While I thought the (first three) Star Wars movies were entertaining enough, I was never one of those giant fans or anything. Anyway, someone sent me a link to one of their rumor message boards the other day and I swear this people are like our mirror only about ten times weirder. They get themselves worked into a frenzy over something as minor as someone leaking information about the characters footwear in the movie. I would laugh but when looked at by an outsider, a large group of people being riled up by X-pac rubbing someone the wrong way is probably equally laughable.
Anyway, I don't know if I would say they were worse, but from the isolated board I saw these people bitch even more than we do and alot of them take the whole "who's booking this crap" thing and direct it towards George Lucas rather than Vince McMahon. It's actually quite funny to read, check it out sometime.

Compared to internet sites that I've checked out while researching stories, wrestling message boards aren't too whacked out. There seems to be a fascination with self-absorbed "writers" (cough cough, Scott Keith, Chris Hyatte, cough couch) who think they're the second coming of Lester Bangs, but we're no more picky than the average fan of anything.

Every hobby has online megalomaniacal terrorists who think they can take over the hobby and rule the world. Even GI Joe collectors, who if not for the occasional gun nut would be some of the most normal people you could encounter online, have the odd troll or two. But they're generally more mellow than you'd expect for guys with miniature armies in their houses. (disclosure: I'm one. Got a tank sitting right behind the PC and more 12" action figures in this room than you'd believe)

That's as opposed to Barbie collectors, who are sharks online who'll rip you to shreds if they think you're a newbie. It's the PMS hobby.

Comic book fans tend to fall into two camps--people under twenty five who wouldn't know a good comic book artist if he drew himself biting them on the ass, and old farts like me who know that comics have sucked for a long time.

Star Wars, Star Trek, Hello Kitty, Soap Opera, and lately, LOTR fans are downright scary. Happy Meal premium and cereal box collectors are mercenaries whose whole world seems to revolve around eBay. Those are the freaky people.

But the scariest of all are the computer geeks. They don't even speak English.

Still, that's what makes the internet great. No matter how bizarre or pathetic your hobby is, you can find a dozen that are even worse.

I remember seeing some daytime talk show where one of the guys was a wrestling fan and he did the "suck it" crotch chop.

I'd say the most obvious worst hobby is the Internet hobby. Not only can you find lots of time with your regular hobbies but spend hours and hours on the Internet to research those too...photos, ebay, official and unofficial web sites, yahoo. even the most modest of fan clubs have web sites.

sorry to state the obvious :)

Not the little guys (no knock on them, they're pretty cool too, especially with Larry Hama returning to the comic book), this is a one-sixth scale Stuart Tank (the kind haunted by Jeb Stuart in the "Haunted Tank" comic book way back when). It's a tiny tank in real life, but scaled down for 12" GI Joes, it still takes up a table by itself.

But if you're into the little guys, the latest tip is that Toys R Us is going to get a re-issue of the General Flagg Aircraft Carrier, just in time for Christmas, at around 200 bucks. There are lots of cool reissues lined up for the REAL AMERICAN HERO line later this year.

Well Palpatine, I hope you're happy. I have Coca-Cola all over my damn keyboard, ejected out a part of the face not intended to be used as an exit for beverages after reading that post. I will be sending you the bill care of Wienerville ;)
