How You Know Power Girl Is DC And Not Marvel

(Image provided by Deviantart user: CrystalGraziano)

Overheard these kids talking today while out getting dinner; their topic of discussion, the simple way to tell that Power Girl was created by DC Comics and not Marvel.

First it was pointed out that it has nothing to do with her overly large breast, nor the skimpy costume she wears, because that's a trait of both companies when it comes to their female characters (can't argue that).

No what it comes down to is as one kid said "quite simple", for if Marvel created Power Girl her breasts would not only be large, but her nipples would fire lasers, and apparently DC wouldn't disrespect a woman to that level.

You know this is kinda deep stuff from a couple of twelve year old kids.

But what do you guys think, would Marvel have given Power Girl laser firing nipples or could DC make this part of her next redesign?

That Elusive Action Figure

Everybody has one, that one action figure that no matter what you do, you just can't seem to find it within your grasp.

Oh it's not because you didn't try either. You've spent time getting up early to be there when the Toys 'R Us or Target store opens, hounded the overnight stockers at Wal-Mart to open the boxes they just pulled out from the back, and gone from one corner of your state (or country) to the other in search of that one figure, that one holy grail.

That ever elusive action figure for me is of course the Star Wars Expanded Universe Darth Revan figure from Hasbro. Sure I could go on eBay or Amazon and pay $40-$100+ on one, but let's be honest here, the figure was $8.99 when first released, can I actually justify spending that kind of cash?

Oh how sweet he looks, but seriously there's no way I'm spending that kind of cash. Possibly $20, but that's still pushing it too.

Now I ask you, what figure has eluded your collection, and at what cost would you go to have it within your grasp?


Duck Dynasty Burn

So out of shear laziness I stopped shaving and grew out my beard, well today that beard cost me to be burned (insulted) by a fellow coworker.

  • Coworker 1: "So are you growing out the beard to be more like the guys on Ducky Dynasty?"
  • Me: "Yep, can't you see I'm channeling my inner Jase?"
  • Coworker 2: *Looks me up and down, "pfft Jase?!? More like Willie!"


In fairness to Coworker 2, I did kind of insult her a while back when we were discussing cosplay and she had said she's not comfortable doing cosplay because she doesn't have the body for all the skinny characters, and I had immediately suggested she could go as Jabba the Hutt. Whoops.

Since getting home after this, I've shaved, and will be starting a diet as soon as I get back from a business trip next week.

Super Mario Brothers Parkour

Love this video, but it does bother me a little bit, okay a lot, that he runs the wrong way in the opening sequence; Super Mario games always went to the right, not left.
