    I heard about this on the radio.
    They will go well with all the homeless freaks down there too.

    I went down there for some fundraiser walk my wife was volunteering for. And this homeless guy came up to me and my 2 1/2 year old trying to talk to us, I think he was more interested in my daughter, bet your backside i held her the whole time kept myself between her and him and was ready to pull my sidearm had he went a little crazy.
    I could only assume he was a sex offender.
    I told my wife were weren't going back there.

    We'll stay on the eastside from now on.

    It proved to be more strange than entertaining. I believe the more entertaining views are to be had in the hotel but I'm not about to spring the money for the tickets.

    I saw no homeless people there. Perhaps the crowds kept them at bay.

    We're all nerds of one sort or the other. Anime nerds are harmless as are most SF/Fantasy nerds. Sports nerds, on the other hand...

    Sports nerds are deadly!
    Anime and comicon nerds are just invested. They live that stuff.

    Sports nerds are generally just as harmless, they just might recite stats on spot and who has a better chance for first ballot hall of fame.

    Depends,
    If your at the stadium when their drinking???

    I thought it was funny that Cincinnati bengals fans were started to file lawsuits against the stadium for over serving fans and there were too many fights, assaults, etc.

    Been going to that convention for 5 years now and I'd say they are some of the most friendly (if not quirky) people/kids I've been around. Lots of community support in the ranks with little to no elitism.

    My daughter got interested in anime in highschool and I spent many years overseas and grew to love anime so after the first year we were both hooked.

    All of that aside, I would go for the entertainment but not to scough of laugh at the "nerds", instead I would go take your kids or grandkids out to see all of the costumes and enjoy the atmosphere.





    Do we really want to be "that" group of gun guys that have no toleramce for anyone other then other gun folks (that like the same guns we do...)?

    I've never seen riots break out after a Star Trek convention.

    Or some guy getting beating to become braindead.

    Most of these cases have been out of Cali so I would chalk it up to being Cali.

    I have a friend who is huge into the comicon, goes every year and buys ridiculously expensive toys and prints of comics or movies.
    It's just his thing. We used to give him crap all the time, but in good fun.

    I wouldn't judge anyone for anything their into. Giving friends a little crap is what friendship is about.

    I would never want to teach my children to act like that.
