How ironic that I have that movie playing in the background right now. But without the awesome clown sweater...

I think I have caught some of the geek... I loved the reference to Schrödinger's cat. And I found a new place to explore next time I am in So Cal. Thanks!

Thanks, Wil. I just got off the phone with my dad. Paying it forward...

Thank you for that touching exerpt. It was a great speech by a great man. The sense of national pride that he brings back to the office of the President is something that has been lacking for the last eight years. This will be an inaugural speech to be remebered with the likes of Franklin Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy.

Thanks for helping all of us wishful thinkers keep our grip on reality as well.

My fingers and toes are crossed for you! Seth Green and Breckin Meyer definitely up the geek factor to +10, but you could add a whole new geek level. Much luck to you!

All this talk about Obama turning America into a Socialist nation! Doesn't anyone realize that FDR already did that with the New Deal and we have been living that way since then? Obama is truely a breath of fresh air in American government. Congratulations President Elect Obama!

I turned 18 one month before the 1996 General Election. There had been a registration drive at my high school that spring and I had filled out the paper work at that time. The best birthday card I got that year was my voter registration card. I have voted in every election since then. I was at my polling location at 7:00 this morning because I could not wait to vote, even though my presidential vote has very little meaning in the very right leaning state I live in. Some of the local elections are very close and I was very proud to be able to cast my ballot. I will be watching the returns closely tonight...

A horrible, horrible proposition for a horrible, horrible cause. I happen to live in a state where they added an ammendment to the state constitution to legally define marriage between a man and a woman. This is the same state that thought it was ok for a man to be married to as many women as he wanted at one point... I am sad for all those bigoted people who actually believe that their marriage means less just because two men or two women who love each other can be married. Besides, the last time I read the Declaration of Indepensece, I believe the words "all men are created equal" is somewhere in there. Marriage is a basic human right! I wish I lived in California right now just so I could vote NO!

Thanks for sharing this story with your readers. The pictures were so much fun and helped to bring this to life. I really enjoyed the episode and I really look forward to (hopefully) seeing more of you on screen! :-)

I have played many of those games. I still blame Will Wright and SimCity for my undying Sims addiction (as well as my penchant for "cheating" whenever possible). Many, many hours were spent with my sister as we hunted for that damned elusive Carmen Sandiego even after we lost the atlas. I was giddy at seeing so many memories of my early computing days. Excuse me now while I go play.

I am very excited that Kevin Smith found this particular film phenomenal. His opinions resonate with a very different demographic than a certain sci-fi franchise usually attracts. From his post, it seems that the wait until May will be worth it.

Sweet! Even the pinky toe helps to keep everything in balance. Don't underestimate your contribution. You have introduced so many people to Penny Arcade who never would have come across it any other way. Go Voltron!

I would be there if I were in LA. But I'm not, so my happy thoughts go with you, Wil.

A very touching speech dedicated to a man who meant so much to so many people. Live Long and Prosper, indeed.

I wish more step-parents were like you. At my high school graduation my step-mother decided she just didn't want to be there and sat in the car during the entire ceremony. Ryan is a very lucky young man to have so many people who care for him so much. Congratulations Ryan, now pass the tissues over to Wil, he's gonna need them.

I think this is one of the first stories I ever read on WWdN. That's why I always think of "Save Ferris" whenever you have a story about your totally awesome dog.

Save Ferris! She is adorable, Wil. I love how this picture is similiar to the one of you and Anne staring off into the distance. She really has a human quality about her. That's why we love the little critters so much, they remind us of ourselves. p.s. My dog wants a playdate. Silly puppy!

This seems popular, but anything Robert A. Heinlein (Stranger in a Strange Land changed my outlook on life, religion, and unconditional love; Time Enough for Love is such a deep and involving story) or Frank Herbert (Dune is the most hard-core sci-fi series ever). All my best friends McCaffrey, Zimmer-Bradley, Norton, Bradbury, and Asimov all have special places on my bookshelf. New sci-fi, I have to agree with DWStrauss, The Time Traveler's Wife is amazing, but I didn't feel like it was a sci-fi book as I was reading it. That would be a good one to introduce people to the genre who are afraid of it. Brian Herbert's prequals to the Dune series aren't terrible. TANSTAAFL!!!!
