As I write this, the station I work for is airing a superhero-themed episode of This American Life, that kicks off with a few interesting comments from Chris Ware about his childhood.
The funny thing is the first segment actually managed to piss me off. The guy who put it together went around and asked people whether they'd rather be able to fly or turn invisible. One woman said she thought everyone, if they were honest, would choose invisibility and that people who choose flight have a disingenuous, mythic view of themselves.
And I'm such a geek that it actually made me mad, and I started going over retorts in my head like, "Well, if you could fly you could fly beyond everyone's sight so you get the best of both worlds," or "Well, in Hollow Man Kevin Bacon effectively couldn't sleep because his eyelids were invisible (bad movie, but the logic is still pretty sound)."
No, moving out of your parent's, having sex, and getting a job don't cure you from unacceptable levels of geek, and I'm proof of it.
UPDATE: The show just ended, and the host mentioned that Chris Ware allowed them to post a comic called "I Guess" on the show's website. You can see it here.
I should also mention that this might be a repeat, as someone who works here told me they've been airing a lot of repeats lately. At least, I haven't heard this episode before, and I've worked the Friday night shift (when we air it) for a year or so.
