More geek stuff you should all skip

Also included in that package was Seth's Bannock, Beans and Black Tea, an illustrated version of his father's memoirs about growing up on Prince Edward Island during the Great Depression. It's really very good though terribly sad, and serves as a reminder that, while poverty and deprivation are relative, the generations after WWII have enjoyed really unimaginable levels of privilege and material comfort.

That was gonna get me off on a big rant about capitalism, social progressivism, and protecting the environment, but you know what? I'd either be preaching to the choir or boring them to tears. I increasingly think that all my political/social vaporing is wasted words of interest to know one, and as I feel more and more politically alienated, those thoughts only become more solidified. I'll instead point out that Seth's real name is GREGORY GALLANT! Why on earth would you change your name if you were Gregory Gallant?

Which brings me to some lists. Feel free to treat this as a poll if you like and pick your favorites, or suggest ones of your own. (This is based on re-reading DC's Who's Who in aid of rewriting and updating my DC Who's Who/Marvel Universe recaps for an as-yet-undisclosed writing project.)
