I want a teleportation machine so I can go to Comic Con in San Diego.
Why don't I go?

I don't go because it is expensive to get there, impossible to get tickets, and beyond insane crowded with people. But it is geek heaven. Starts today and goes until Sunday. So I'm living vicariously through the live blogs and tweets of others who ARE there. There are lots of cons throughout the year but this is the BIG ONE.
I have been a geek since grade school in the 70s. I LOVED loved loved loved Captain Kirk.

....and Marvel, like Captain America:
(sneaky, part two, heh heh heh).
And others like The Walking Dead which started as graphic novels:
I've just learned these through movies and TV. And I'm just recently a fan of Doctor Who, specifically the Tenth Doctor:
I'm afraid to really jump into comic books because it is a huuuuuuge world. HUUUUUUUUUGE.
