Top 11 Things Geeks Have to Be Thankful For

During this lull between when Con season ended and opening holiday gift begins, let us reflect on some things that we, as geeks, should be thankful for.

 

11.  I am thankful that Joss Whedon hasn’t killed any of my friends or family members… yet.

 

10.  I am thankful that Captain Kirk lives in the future, so he can’t get at our wives and daughters.

 

9.  I am thankful that George Lucas hasn’t digitally enhanced my live with new footage, or retconned me to shoot last.

 

8.  I am thankful that my city hasn’t gotten so decrepit that building a RoboCop seems like a good idea.

 

7.  I am thankful that I wasn’t raised by Alfred the butler, because that guy is no fun at all.

 

6.  I am thankful that we don’t live in the zombie apocalypse, because pizza delivery in my area is already slow enough.

 

5.  I am thankful that aliens all work on a Christian timetable, so we don’t have to worry about the Doctor disrupting Hannukah.

 

4. I am thankful for Dr Walter Bishop, who proves that you can still routinely save the world after decades of heavy drug abuse.

 

3. I am thankful for Gandalf, for leading hobbits and dwarves on quests that keep them out of my kitchen.

 

2. I am thankful for the Hulk, because sometimes puny humans just need to be smashed.

 

1. I am thankful for Namor the Submariner, for showing us that not everyone from Atlantis is a whiny loser.

    Recently I was really, really low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills! I’m so glad, I did this.. With all the financial stress these years, I really hope all of you will give it a chance. – sr1d
