I have troubles waking up when it's dark out. I need my natural light... Technobabble is awesome, though.

I'm incredibly glad I've only had to fly out of smaller airports since this new policy's been started. I'm one of those lucky ones who can refuse to fly, so I don't plan on getting on a plane for a while (unless I go to Europe, in which case I'll convince my parents to let me fly out of Canada or something). I don't know if you're familiar with AngryAussie at all, he's done a lot of rant videos on youtube about the subject, and he found an article about the reason the airport in Jerusalem has such great security when they have none of the invasive methods/policies that we do in the US.Basically the TSA fails at actual safety because they just care about looking like they're doing something, whereas real, successful security is very hard to see. You shouldn't have had to go through that. Nobody should.

On the bright side, at least you've grown to be an adult with the courage to willingly share these painfully awkward teenage moments with an equally large audience.

Here's my delayed thoughts on the matter: As someone who's been generally clueless as to what you've accomplished in terms of gaming advocacy, I will admit I was surprised and confused by the whole ordeal as it unfolded on twitter. Honestly, the only reason I followed you in the first place is because I read Jeph Jacques's Questionable Content, saw some of your back-and-forth tweets with him, and liked what I saw you posting on twitter. I didn't watch Star Trek much as a kid, so you were pretty much a complete stranger to me, and I didn't really do much research beyond reading some of your blog posts. I didn't know much of your history with the gamers' community until this incident unfolded and you linked to this blog post on twitter. Now, having a better idea of what you've done and what you stand for, I can completely understand why you reacted the way you did. Everyone has those HULK SMASH moments, you're no worse than any of the rest of us. And to be honest, on a personal level, I'm glad I saw it happen. I'm a not-quite-hardcore gamer myself and I've always thought that the way gaming has been looked at by the media has been, for lack of a more polite term, complete bullshit. Sadly, I didn't realize that there were people out there who were fighting to change that, but now that I know more about the issue, I am very glad to see that people like you exist. Also, the fact that you apologized for reacting that way while still standing up for your opinion on the matter just increases my respect for you.
