I'm a cartoonist, Mark Waid will never draw as well as I can and he'll never publish his own graphic novels. He's a better writer, for now, but I'm young and hungry.

You have no artistic qualifications, you fucking layman, so you don't get to look Waid in the eye and contradict him.


So you're a wannabe with delusions of grandeur. Gotcha.

Friday, I look my Congressman in the eye and contradict him. I have done so previously with heads of state, and CEOs of Top 10 companies. Mark Waid would be a pleasant distraction. You, not so much.

No, I'm a cartoonist that has transitioned over from the animation industry after back injuries forced me to retire. Now I publish my own comic books. As soon as I get my I.T.I.N. they'll be for sale.

Big deal, you're all fucking laymen when it comes to art. Not one of you cunts is qualified to sharpen my pencil. You have no expertise in interpreting visual representation, whereas I can draw anything I fucking well please.

You're opinion is as baseless as it is irrelevant.

Well it's time for bed. I hope the last two hours wasted arguing with me makes your day shitty and long tomorrow.

See you in a couple of days! :smt006

I actually recorded a verse on Magna Carta Holy Grail but Jay dropped it from the album because he couldn't afford my royalty fees.

What's the myth where the hero tricks two monsters into fighting each other? Scylla and Charybdis? Because that's what this feels like.

:lol: that's from the odyssey, isn't it? Where Odysseus had to choose between going by the monster or the whirlpool?

Yes. But a wiki search says that's how the myth went. Odysseus just steered the ship between the two obstacles. I could have sworn hearing it differently. Maybe its the legend of "Scylla" and "Charybidis" I'm recalling?

Odysseus tricks the Cyclops into not eating him by letting him eat several of his own men first. :lol:

He's most known for being one of the smartest Greek heroes. He's not known for being a nice guy. Letting Eddie the cabin boy get eaten so he can live is just smart planning.

Actually I don't think there's a single Greek hero who wasn't a jackass in some way. Much like the Gods they were all deeply deeply flawed.

Prometheus seemed like a nice guy. Of course, it cost him dearly.

Prometheus was an anti-social reform allegory for retaining power to those already in power.

Thank you, and karma points to you.

I've had this argument repeatedly in the past with people who refuse to let go of the notion that the gods were, in fact, immensely flawed and exhibited more human foibles than the people that worshiped them.

Zeus just liked to have sex. I do not see that as a flaw. A slut sure.

Zeus could morph into animals, so his needs were complicated on many, many levels.
