    Now Diane Rheme. Oh my god shut the fuck up you old bag of farts your voice makes me want to go on a blind rampage.

    She is one of the best interviewers/radio voices of all time. But yeah, at this point in her life, it's just grim.

    No she's really great, that's why I still listen. It's just that her voice sounds like an exaggerated impersonation of an old woman. It's so annoying.

    of course, she had spasmodic dysphonia, which is the disorder which made Scott Adams completely unable to speak for a while

    One time, I had a friend over to play a bit of Red Alert on my LAN. During the game he said he needed to go to the bathroom, so we paused it. After about 10 minutes of wondering where the hell he went, I get up and go to check on him.

    Turns out he was trying to screw my dog.
    Once I was taking a poop at a restaurant and a kid crept underneath the door into my stall. I let out a big fart and then he threw up all over the floor in front of me and I just stared at him.

    Has there ever been a comic book character that was weak and pretty unathletic but his one power is he can't get hurt?

    yes, it is an awesome story too. It was in the avengers initiative after civil war

    his power is that his body cannot be harmed or change state at all.

    guess how you get stronger? you break down muscle mass and it grows back.

    whoops, my body can't be harmed in any way.

    The most surprising thing to me is finding out there's a character in the Marvel Universe named Batwing
    Batwing? Really? You couldn't think up something a little more original?

    I loved the whole bit where they explained the differences between people who choose flight instead of invisibility and vice versa

    I liked this but I didn't like the reasons for why people chose the power.
    I wanna fly cause I'm scared of falling! Simple as that. :P
