Frickin' Laser Beams

Captain Awesome's powers have kicked in! Well, he had a few already, super-speed, hyper-eating, the mighty nip, but now we have some POWER. Laser Vision! Rock. Oh, and I made him a Dogster page 'n' stuff. Posted by Picasa

Tribute for The Captain

Originally uploaded by macslost.
As you know, Captain Awesome is awesome. If you have not met Captain Awesome yet, then you should, because he is. That's not the point, though. Today I received a promotion from Petco where I can get 1 of 6 free items from the store. They have something for everyone. Tennis ball, catnip, aquarium, crickets, treats and some bird-stick-snack thing. So, Captain being a dog and all, your initial instinct is to say "Tennis Ball". Your intincts would be wrong. After a brief moment of (what was the feeling? embarassment? glee? pride? confusion? I can't place it.) I laughingly thought that the most appropriate gift would be the crickets. I have been meaning to post this for quite some time, but nothing makes The Captain happier than stalking, chasing, playing with and ultimately eating crickets on the back patio. He'll entertain himself for at least an hour or two with that, tail wagging the whole time. Granted, I think it's better for him to eat free-range crickets than the chemically enhanced and caged crickets that are being mass-produced as lizard and frog food, but it served as a reminder to actually post this. (is it wrong that I taught him to eat them and praise him for it? I hope they aren't bad for him.)

What's your super-power?

What's your super-power?

It's a conversation everyone's had. "If you could have a super-power, what would it be?" Most people choose flight. Some choose mind-reading or x-ray vision. Maybe super-strength. But really. How useful would these powers be? Flight? Great, now you can get places faster. Sucks for you that you now have to carry all your crap in your arms everywhere you go. That'll get real old. Especially since you aren't any stronger now, so it's not like you can carry a 150-pound person with you so you gotta go everywhere by yourself. Wee. Not great for rain or nighttime, either. X-Ray Vision? Yes, now you too can know what secret things lie behind...what? What did you need to see into? Mind-reading? You're kidding, right? You know how you get sick of other people crap/baggage? Imagine if you had to listen to all the things they WON'T say outloud. Super-strength is great if you're a mover. Beyond that, it's not like you were going to become a crime-fighter or anything. See, my favorite power is that of relatively unknown X-Man 'Madrox The Multiple Man'. His power? He can make unlimited multiples of himself and then reabsorb them again and learn everything they did while "out". Don't feel like going to work today? Send a clone. Wanna learn how to cook, but don't wanna learn? Send a clone. Paint the house? Clone. Got 2 birthday parties and a concert on the same night? Clone, clone. See, once you reabsorb them, your memory of the event is as if you went anyway and it's YOU, so it did anything you would have done. So you can do ANYTHING. The applications are limitless. So, being my favorite super-hero in general, his tech design is actually tattooed on my calf, which most pople don't know and never will unless they read this. And he kind looks like me, was actually created a few months after I was born and there's the fact that people seem to see clones of me around all the time, so it's possible that I am one anyway. The point to all this is that I just geeked out when I read THIS. Woo-Hoo! Madrox will be in X3 with Magneto! (oddly enough, in alternate tellings of the X-Men universe, Madrox tends to be a bad guy, which I don't quite get). So now I'm psyched and can't wait to see 200 of him running around.
