There's 6 billion threads for people to bitch about things but there are precious few that focus on the positive, so I decided that despite my generally hateful nature I'd attempt to focus on the good things.

1. We live in a time when Rocket Raccoon and Groot are going to be in a major Hollywood movie, when I was younger and had my list of comic characters I thought would actually be in a movie some day these guys were probably at the bottom if at all but now we have them coming in a potential Summer block buster staring actors we've actually heard of.

2. A World's Finest movie is happening, despite all the complaining the mere fact that this will soon exist has gotten a high five from my inner child.

3. Being a geek is no longer a major social stigma, at worst its considered somewhat immature now days.

4. Bacon, its just always a reason to be happy.

Well, If we are talking about comic related things, I am excited for the Days of the Future Past film and the Superman/Batman film as well. Also the Godzilla remake.

He got a TV show. It shouldn't be surprising.

That thread is "things to happy about in comics" rather than just a generalization of things to be happy about like this thread.

Family, art, women, friends, comics, writing, music, love, peace of mind.

Geeks being more accepted is cool, but it's dawned an era of girls like this

But let's face it, we'd do them if we had the chance.

@arturocalakayvee: exactly my point

I think you meant *don't* like dwelling in caves. Then any day above ground would be good. Otherwise... Anyway, just saying ;)

  1. I'm alive
  2. I have a beautiful wife
  3. There was a great Venom solo ongoing (was)
  4. I have a job I enjoy, that doesn't feel like work
  5. I achieved a life long dream by having the job I have

All in all, not bad for a kid from Jersey everyone thought would never make it.

Yay, positivity!

I'm happy that I like in a place where I have freedom and rights and a place to call home and a puppy and a family that I think still loves me and good friends and a job I like and a Ps Triple with 2 platinum trophies and I got to see videogame music live the other night and they played One Winged Angel and I own an extensive collection of Lobo comics, Skylanders, DC HeroClix, Indy HeroClix and I have a working car and live in an era where it's more accepting of different people than it used to be

Is easier to get laid these days, in the past you had to court for a really long time then marry someone.
