this is a question that might offend some people that I have. It can go a few differant ways actually. I'm asking this because of all the ball busting I get. First off you need to know that I'm an Italian male from Chicago and I'm over 30. I'm not married, and don't have girl friend, but that by choice right now. I get laid quite a bit, watch a lot of sports, and pretty damn artistic, and I grew up fighting a whole hell of lot, and most of my friends I've know since I was 5. I have a very large circle of friends, I was popular in School, and made a lot of trouble for being outspoken and cracking a lot of jokes, and Ive been reading comics since I was around 12. I only have 1 friend who also reads comics and he only read Wolverine and Batman while I read every thing from DC and Marvel. I get joked on a lot by my friends and family for reading comics and always have. I never got picked about it in high school, even tho I always had one on me during my classes and everyone around me knew I read them. No one said shit because they knew I'd tear them up if they got me pissed. I did very good with girls in school, and very well with HOT girls. Other then the responces from my posts on here, and messeges people leave me I don't have any other contact with other comic readers. Not socially. About a month ago I was in a comic store with my brother and there was a group of about 7 guys all talking with each other about Damian Wayne. I hate Damian because, comic or not, its just to fake. I don't care how much training a 10 year old gets, from Batman or not, he's not tough. He's fighting crooks, that in the real world most likely have been fights. One good punch and that 10 year old is finished. Also he won't have enough power to really hurt most people. Anyway, they were debating about him and I said out loud "Fuck Damian. He's ten. I'd give him one good boot to the face and he's done." They all laughed and most said I was right. They asked a few more questions on my opinion like "What's a good age minimum to be Robin, and how should Batman react to Damians attitude." "I said start traing at what ever age, but he can't hit the street til he can drive, and surely not if he doesn't have hair on his balls. Also if I was Batman, I'd treat him like my father did when I was bad, and give me a crack. That actually toughens a kid up. Plus how do you give a billionare a time out?"
We walked out and my brother had look of amazement on his face. I asked him what was up and he told me that I could be their king. He said how he just saw the cast of Big Band Theory and couldn't believe there were people that geeky. He went on how they reacted to my answers and opinions circled me and moved in like I was preaching what they wanted to hear. He also mentioned how I could have beat all 7 of them at once, and it was like they knew I was no push over. Like they'd run to me for protection if they could. I want to know if there are other people out there like me. Not so much someone who can throw down and box, but someone who is not a geek and how you're not a geek. I'd assume the people that I offend with this question are the ones that are geeks and grew up dorks. Do you know you're a dork, or are oblivious to it. I really am curious.
