  • Oh, no offense taken - and I shouldn't have given the impression I had to nag grandma into taking me. I think it was more a function of my parents having seen it and not feeling the need to see it again - silly people!

    I am duly impressed you saw it 100+ times! I don't think movies stick around in theaters long enough anymore for folks to do that.

    Yep. that 100+ times was over the course of more than a year. We kept going, they kept showing. It was a different world before home video.

    @Bibliomike, @WetRats, I was 11 when SW premiered in Switzerland - I remember using up my theater subscription (yes we had those). So I 'm 100% sure that I saw SW 10 times at the theater back in 1977 (or maybe it was '78, since Switzerland was behind....)

    Hey everyone DAR here, but otherwise known as Damon. I started listening right around the time The Dark Knight was released and have been a fan ever since.

    Two truths and one lie or one lie and two truths.

    I've never been to California
    I was once champion during Teen Week on Jeopardy
    I didn't start reading comics until the mid 2000's

    2.I never learned how to ride a bike,but I can ride a motorcycle.
    3.I have never seen any of the Godfather films.

    Hey! My name is Glenn and I live in the UK. I'm a professionally
    Two truths and a lie.

    1 I once toured with a famous American Rock band for a week before writing and drawing their official comic book.

    2 I published my first novel 3 years ago.

    3 I have a strange obsession with cheese.

    hope to get chatting to some of you fine folks.

    If #1 is true, which band? Hopefully REM or the Cure!

    I'm Geoff. Been collecting (primarily Marvel) comics for 26 years. Big X-book fan, especially New Mutants. Regular monthly pull list at my LCS (Orbital Comics in London) is 47 titles long so have a bit of a backlog for reading.

    Started buying DC about 4 months before re-launch. :/ Was going to jump-off at re-launch but being an addict, now have 15 DC titles on my pull-list. Lol.

    Slowly getting into digital comics but they'll never replace paper in my eyes.
  • PommykiwiPommykiwi Posts: 25
    Forgot my two truths and one lie.

    - ended a relationship over my other-half's lack of understanding and appreciation of comics

    - spent 23 years tracking a Marvel UK comic that my mum gave away to someone thereby meaning my set was incomplete

    - Thought Fear Itself was the greatest universe-altering event ever with its ramifications blasting through the 616-Universe irreversibly and eternally.

    Can you spot the lie? Lol.

    Hello! My name's Chris. I've been a fan of the show for a while, but I didn't really listen to every episode until I got an iPod with a lot of gigs (I know, my reasoning doesn't make much sense).

    1. I worked at Golden Eagle Comics in Reading, Pa.
    2. I was once involved in a small backyard wrestling organization when I was twelve.
    3. I met Steve Martin and got him to sign my cheese omelet.

    1. I once fell asleep on a train and woke in another country
    2. After a night out i fell asleep up a tree fell out and broke my am and collar bone

    tell me more, you bloodsucking sheep!

    1. That happened to me many times (I live near the border to Germany)
    2. hmmm...a vampire actually could end up sleeping in a tree.....
    3. When 15 I often dreamed of setting the school on fire.

    = All is true?

  • my names lead sharp on any and all forums, I believe fanboys need a slap and Rob Liefeld is evil.

    2 truths and a lie? ok...

    1. My parents met in a monkey cage.

    2. I used to live in a volcano.

    3. I once had a dog called Rover.
  • NickNick Posts: 284


    I am guessing the last one is a lie.
    Actually #2 was the lie. The ex's name was Larissa Cox (yes that was her name in high school, she was in Playboy in several College Editions). I work for the largest steel company in the world, and the owner was in Indiana when I first started. Back then he was #5 in the world, but since then has lost about 120 billion of his worth (but still worth a lot).

    I say #3, and only because a greek omelet would have been better to sign, the Feta would last longer.

    Strangely my last name is also Cox. When I was born mom wanted to name me Harry. Yes Harry Cox,thankfully dad stepped in and I got named Newt instead.
  • My name is Mike, and I'm a freelance graphic designer and illustrator:
    Black Umbrella Design - Comics and Creativity

    If you're on Facebook, give my Black Umbrella Design page a LIKE if you have one to spare. Take a look at my posts and you'll see a lot of geekdom there.

    Since I don't get to hang out in the comic shop anymore (and don't want to since the owner is nuts about politics), CGS is my dose of conversation about comics, and I appreciate that greatly.

    1) I once bit into an electrical cord and blew my mouth open
    2) I have impersonated a security guard and gone on night patrol
    3) I once fell from three stories and landed without injury

    That you are avoiding your LCS, because of a nutty owner, is kind of sad AND funny.

    hmmm.....whatever is true or false....you seem to think you're a superhero... :P

    Hmmm as a huge geek savants fan I will have to say the first one is a lie. It is well known you love skinny women that look like twigs.
