Just as a side note, I was in my early twenties when the show first aired. My age is as my name tag implies.

Loved "The Princess Bride" refrence. Another .02 in to the pot,as for me and my personal take take on Wesley. The character represented many of the things I would like to have been as a teen and quite frankly wasnt. I do think it would have been cool too see Wesley grow as some of the other comments suggested. Wesley did add to the whole idea of family being on board the Enterprise,I mean the show would have lost something if wesley was just mentioned in passing rather than being seen.

I agree with many of the others in that you are too hard on yourself. This may be a birthing process for you, but that doesnt mean you can't do it without an epidural!. You wouldn't have as many follwers if you weren't engaging and very humorous and erst while thought provoking. As for my .02 I believe these as key ingrediants to any good story whether fictional or factual. keep on doing what you do! Oh and by the way. Congratualation's ..mom and pop ..it's a writer!!

I often put the blame for traffic accidents on the idea that people have no patience. If we just took a little more time to get where we need to go,had the patience to let someone go in front of us or decided to take the long way just cause we missed the turn we were intending to take. This is easier said than done and I can under stand that,the pressure to be somewhere and get there fast isn't always due to our choices but most of the time it is. Paint me guilty as well for feeling the need too speed in excess because I have left for work late,trying to get to a doctors appointment and even on my way to traffic court!. It has only been in recent years that I came to realise that my being late is going to get someone killed or me, I can deal with my dying but I would feel soo incredibly horrible for the rest of my day's knowing that I injured or killed some body because of my stupidity. Now I undersatnd that if i am late for something that i just have to face the consequences for that,my speeding up or driving recklessly isnt going to do me or any one else any good and an officer of the law isn't concerned with how late I am when he is writing me a citation. "Patience, it's more than a virtue..it's saves lives!"

Now that would be something absolutely fantatsic too see,having Ash,Shaq,Wil and the other high profile geeks show up in someone's living room to play out an a.d.&d arc would be just coolness to the extreme!

I twitter'd Wil in where does sports fit into geek? It is onnly a question in that I never played sports in school,every once in a while my older brother and I would play with the kids on our street back in my elementary day's.

In my case it wasn't so much about what others thought about my being geek as it was that you would be verbally and physically repressed in some instances for even using dialogue from Asimov to give some credit for your viewpoints on topiics of the day!

I am the opposite of everything you just wrote. Never had a great desire to devote myself to programming languages or becomming profecient with computers but I read books both of sci-fi and fantasy they were my constant companion's from middle school all the way through high school and even into my few years at a community college. Thanks for comic books and to writers such as Asimov and Heinlin,I gained an appreciation for computer's and even a fascination for them, they were far beyond my grasp to obtain in my late teens and twenties and were only for those who had an affluent lifestyle. But I gamed not only fantasy role playing but milatary r.p.g's as well as technological games from f.a.s.a.,Gurps r.p.g's as well as the Steve Jackson games. I only just began my foray into computing a little over 7 yrs ago and I only have a rudimantary understanding of all the things this device can do, and my first introduction into all things electronic were from game consoles which in my case began with Atari cartridge games in the late 70's and early 80's,none of which I ever owned but always played at somebody else house. So in the technology department I am far behind even when compared to my peer group. I also disagree with you in that geek is simply a devotion, it is a real lifestyle that was once an undercurrent of mainstream trends,although not as much as it once was. I would never have admitted to any one in my middle or high school that I played role playing games or that in my stack of school books was Roger Zelazany's book "Lord Of Light" or "Thieves World" series of book's It hasn't been until the internet age and game console's that brought the r.p.g.'s that I played only as a pen and paper to the masses and made them acceptable amoung the mainstream much in the way that film and television have done for comic books. Maybe it isnt soo much that geekness encompasses a majority of people but that there are different levels of geek. So many of my co-workers both in the past and in the present that would do a double take if I mentioned annything about A.D.&D or M.T.G, let alone that I play W.o.W. It is a different lifestyle but it has grown in popularity,in my opinion due to the fact that there were soo many in my peer group that were geeks then and who are now programmers and marketing, production managers for the various media in which geek thrives. (please excuse the poor writing skill's I would much rather read then write.)
