A Random Assortment of Things

Turns out my time at the Call Center last night wasn’t all that bad. What do you know.

In any case, it’s time for an update on running. Some nights I come back feeling great, and some nights I come back feeling like I’ve been hit by a truck and struck by a terrible flu at the same time. Tonight was definitely that latter of the two. It’s getting a lot warmer out here, and it’s making it harder to run. I have no idea what I’m going to do when I get into June.

Finally, a story:

It has been suggested by some that if one were to get a blood transfusion from Spider-Man, they would come to gain his superpowers; his blood is, after all, infused with the radiation that gave him the proportional strength and skills of a spider. In reality, a much more terrible fate would occur.

You see, it is a central tenant of the Spider-Man comics that his life must always suck. This is demonstrated early in the series (VERY early, way back in the 60’s) when Peter’s Aunt May becomes ill and needs a blood transfusion. He gladly donates his blood, being the loving and self-sacrificing nephew he is. Though gravely ill, doctors assure Peter that his donation will bring his Aunt back to full health.

Then Aunt May comes down with radiation poisoning.

How do you even deal with that? What do you tell the doctor when he asks why an already ill patient has mysteriously become irradiated? How do you explain to your loved ones that you are solely responsible for their continued pain and misery?

Does it, perhaps, go something like this?

How can you hold a grudge against a face like that?

And that’s not even to speak of the strains it puts on his secret identity.

Thanks to Chris’s Invincible Super-Blog for that awesome picture of Spider-Man. It’s even better in context. Plus, it’s a pretty awesome blog; much better than the shit I post here.

Editor’s Note: And these are the types of posts where I just put a bunch of random stuff in. It happens sometimes. Let’s just move on.
