Is posting a week early TOO early? Are we not cutting it close enough? I WANT IDEAS, PEOPLE, NOT EXCUSES
Oh also nonMefites may be coming so try to be presentable for once, okay? Okay.

I'm not going to make it downtown tonight after all. See you all another time soon!

Some other meetup group took our usual space, so we're a little perpendicular this month.

Looks like we might head up to Cheesie's before LiveWire, FYI.

The Billy Goat just tweeted this link to their website out today; I wonder if they heard my wondering loudly last night about why the Original Billy Goat isn't really the original Billy Goat.

While we're doing followups, here's the complete "Super Drunk" story, straight from the wall over the pickle bar.

You're doing the Lord's work, Iridic.

One more follow-up: there's a lot of talk on the Internet out there on the issue and, being Marvel, the canon explanation has changed a lot over the years, but the answer to "how the Hulk gets so much more mass when Bruce hulks out?" is basically Pym particles drawing mass from the Kosmos dimension.

Some day, I'll be able to actually attend these again. (I think I've made 2 in several years. For very specific reasons the timing never works out for me.)

But, thanks for continuing to post them, and for welcoming strangers who occasionally wonder in.

I wonder if, someday, I'll learn to distinguish between homonyms when posting here.
