Funnybook madness

So, I've been thinking about going to WizardWorld this year.

REASONS TO GO:

- I haven't been to a con in years
- I like comic books
- Something to do on my birthday weekend
- Might give me some funny material to write about
- Slight possibility that I could meet Rob Liefeld and punch him in the face
- People there are so limp they will make me feel slightly better about myself
- I am theoretically meant to be writing a comic book and it couldn't hurt to suck up to some artists or industry fucks

REASONS NOT TO GO:

- There's a reason I haven't been to a con in years
- Wall-to-wall pathetic loser geeks
- It's in Rosemont
- I can't think of anything lamer than going to a con on my birthday
- It costs forty bucks, which I could spend on marijuana instead
- No one I know is even remotely desperate enough to go with me
- I hate everything

You can see the bind I'm in. So once again, I turn to you, group of people on the internet that for the most part I have never seen or even met, to help me decide.

No, of course not. What are you, an idiot?
2(16.7%)
I'm going, so it would make me feel marginally less stupid if you showed up.
0(0.0%)
Maybe. I can't decide, because I don't know what the hell you're talking about.
1(8.3%)
The very fact that you're asking this question is proof enough that you should kill yourself.
