Read More 2.0 / TL;DR

I don’t know what this is called, but I wish Tumblr had a thing where you could fold whole sections of a post under a read more. Like, make them collapsed and then unfold/open the section on click. So you could have these really big text posts, but hide all of the extraneous stuff unless the person wanted to look at it.

The overall idea being that large posts are more digestible in the Dashboard, but can be expanded at the will of the reader.

Also wish Markdown footnotes were more prominent footnotes were implementable in the Rich Text Editor.

Superior Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #31
Fantastic close to the series! Clearly Peter has some work cut out for him and an altered landscape. Dare I say it, I’m looking forward to Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 2)
I rated this 4.5 out of 5

Amazing Spider-man #700 and Superior Spider-man #1 were the 2 issues that got me back in to comics. I also needed something to read while my then-girlfriend was grading papers.
Not only did this series let us delve more in to who Otto is and what makes him tick, people like myself got the Spider-man shake-ups they had long wanted. Some really good (Peter now has a PhD and finally has his own tech company, Peter Parker Industries, Mary Jane Watson has finally decided she deserves a life of her own), some really bad (quitting/being fired from the Avengers, the entire city hating him over privacy concerns, being back on Jonah Jameson’s bad side, souring things with Ben Reilly and Felicia Hardy, this list goes on).
Now that Peter is back (after a really emotional struggle to not get lost inside of Otto’s subconscious), he’s got a lot of clean up to do and there are some wounds that just aren’t going to heal. Also, the heartbreaking nature of Otto’s love interest.
For the first time in fifteen-ish years, I’m looking forward to reading Amazing Spider-man again.

There’s no such thing as a fake geek girl.

Just read that ruckawriter post about that shirt at WonderCon (I’ll post it when I’m near a computer) and now _I’m_ all worked up about it, too.

There are also a few posts about shitty experiences at awesomecons and that’s really not ok. Especially given how small the DC comic community is.

How do these people still exist? How can they be called fans when they’re trying to exclude people? How has no one punched them in the mouth?

There’s no such thing as a “fake geek girl”. If you’re in to it, you’re in to it. That should be the end of the checklist for geek credentials.

Presumably because moonlight is literally hundreds of thousands of times weaker than direct sunlight. You’re generally being hit by more reflected sunlight if you stand in the shade during the day than if you stand under a full moon at night. (It’s possible to get burnt by sunlight reflected off surfaces like water or sand or snow, even if you’re not in direct sunlight.)
….which raises the question of why ambient daylight doesn’t kill vampires either. I guess there must be a minimum intensity of sunlight required.

Oooh in the book Sunshine by Robin McKinley, really old and powerful vampires can’t go out in moonlight, either. I always found that detail interesting.

Ooh that’s neat. I don’t suppose anyone’s ever come across vampire canon where sunblock works for them? Because I’ve always thought that would be fun. (Or hilarious.)

That actually sounds fantastic. Considering how YA vampire high school novels are so popular, that should totally be a thing. And like every couple hours they need to covertly reapply an entire bottle of sunblock.

This was in Blade. Vampires could put on a few coats of sunscreen and walk around in the sunlight.

Mumble mumble… kids… mumble mumble… never seen Blade… mumble grumble

Now get off my lawn.
