I'm sure you are already well aware of this, but you have an amazing wife. 8D Thanks to you and to Anne for bringing a smile to my day, and happy birthday!

This made me laugh a lot more than I really think it should have. And it made me look forward to my next bit of spam.

*nods and points* I created a Whovian in 3 episodes: Blink, Human Nature, and The Family of Blood. Empty Child and The Doctor Dances were awesome episodes, though they were Eccleston and not Tennant. Though I loved Eccleston as the Doctor. I can see not being a fan of Game of Thrones, though. I love the series, but it's a bit harsh and unforgiving (one of the awesome things about it). But seriously, not a fan of Doctor Who? o.O How is that even possible? Oh well, we still love you wife!

So, so funny! I can not wait to get the DVDs of this season to see what deleted scenes and outtakes they put in. If you have any influence over TPTB at Eureka, first, get them to pick those last 6 eps back up, and then get them to include everything from this episode!

It definitely shows a disturbing lack of boundaries and don't be a dick-ness, not to mention a good dose of extortion with the whole "do this or else" element in there. Sadly, actors aren't the only ones who have to deal with at. Ask any doctor who has ever tried to have a meal in peace when a patient spots him or her. From personal experience, I can tell you that English teachers are often asked to edit papers written outside of class, not for an assignment, because clearly we have nothing better to do during our office hours that to mark up student papers. And yeah, it does make you bitter and angry. So I'll just raise a glass to you and say that you did the right thing, and you should not feel bad about it at all. And I'll send wishes out into the universe that you won't have to deal with that any more!

Yay! I am so glad that I can read people's reports of ComicCon. A friend and I tried half-heartedly to go -- well, she tried a lot more whole-heartedly and could never seem to find the right number of sacrificial goats and numerology combination to make their site work for her. The last time we went, we had an awesome time, but the queue to get in for the Doctor Who panel and sometime hugely later the Torchwood panel was disheartening. The stuff you do get to see at ComicCon is incredibly awesome, but the stuff you miss because you're queuing for something else for hours ahead of time is disappointing. But in disagreement to your statement about clearing the room, A)I'm not sure that it would work quite the way people want it to, and B) there were days when I was in Ballroom 20 all day long because there were 4 to 6 panels I really did want to see, some back-to-back, and I would have been gutted to have been booted out in between and possibly missed something I really wanted to see.

I seem to remember reading some years ago of some residents of low-income, government housing in a gang-dominated area who wanted to install metal detectors on all the entrances to the building. The ACLU stepped in and said no, you can not even consent to sign away your Fourth Amendment rights against illegal search and seizure. So why are we allowing millions of people to sign away these rights simply by agreeing to fly? My answer is simple: no one has yet pushed the right buttons to make this hideous monster go away. Look, if a duly sworn police officer with probable cause to search a perpetrator for weapons can't put his hands inside of that perpetrator's pants, then you had better believe that the TSA can't either. That is sexual assault, pure and simple. And no one should ever be forced to consent to sexual assault. And no one should be forced to consent to an invasive, explicit, and potentially health-hazardous "photograph," either. Chicken Little has screamed "The sky is falling," and we've wadded up our Constitution to throw at the invisible monsters.

I was in the audience last night, and I can tell you, my two friends and I laughed until we cried. Your set was wonderful, and you really hit a balance between touching, meaningful, and hilarious. I don't think we can ask for too much more than that. And Paul and Storm, well, they're just genius, aren't they? And then to have the two special guests you had just put it all over the top. So I guess all-in-all, well done! And thank you for all the effort all of you put in to making sure we had such a wonderful time.

I'd like to continue the thanks, Wil and Wil's Mom! My brother and I both had a form of Celiac's when we were kids, back in the 70's. I'm sure you can imagine how fun it was finding food we could eat back then. I think I read somewhere that Celiac's is more common than peanut allergies, and potentially just as deadly, yet so many fewer people know about it. Keep up the great work, and let's keep all of the great gluten-free options going!

So many things I want to say. I also want an alot of fun, but that is another issue for another time. And it is interesting that you are doing a show on the first day of my new school term. Hmmm, show with Wil Wheaton...first day of classes. Decisions, decisions. Thanks for all the stuffs to check out, so here is one more. Have you seen this: http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/games/deaa/ ? It's obnoxious! I love it!

I teach some of those kids at a community college. In one summer school class, I had 2 single moms, each with 4 kids, each fleeing an abusive relationship. I also had a couple of late-teen/early-twenties kids whining about how hard they work and how they get so sick of giving their paycheck to all these single moms who keep having kids just to go on welfare. And oh, by the way, they are A students because they were A students in high school, so they deserved an A in my class. And they just *totally* don't get why my class is so haaaaaaaaard. *hefty sigh* I totally get the irritation at some people's sense of entitlement.

Oh dear. Here I've just lectured my students on the evils of cell phones when their classmates are trying to concentrate on writing essays, and I read this and burst into uncontrollable giggles. Sorry guys, i just became 12. Resume writing.

As I read this and all of the comments that have followed, I'm glad that there are ways for us all to share our memories of this event. It is sort of branded on our collective cultural memory, so thanks, Wil, for allowing us a little space to share our story of our memory. I remember the day as clearly as I remember the declaration of the Gulf war, the first one, and 9/11/01. I was a freshman in high school, and the quad had been abuzz with talk of the space shuttle, and the first civilian, a teacher, being allowed to fly with the astronauts and how amazing that was. There was a zip that went through us, someone said something about an explosion, but no one knew really what was going on. I walked into my English class, and Mr. Drath had the television on, and we were stunned as we watched the shuttle explode. The shuttle exploded when I was a freshman, and the Berlin Wall came down when I was a senior. Those are sort of the anchors of the years when I was really forming my idea of my place in the world.
