      1. Hm.
        Star Trek Uniform with Lightsabre on belt?
        Harry Potter Gryffindor Robes with Twilight teeth?

        I’m not even a comic guy, but I’m sure the possibilities are endless.
        To be a total poser, just attach the lightsaber to your belt while STILL IN its original container. Just have the whole box hanging off your belt like you haven’t a clue.

  1. Don’t take away the best part about being a man: knowing you’re always right. Even if you lose an argument you can always tell yourself that you really were right, but just let her win because of her period.

    That and societal acceptance of ostentatious facial hair.

    1. I once read in a book that people that sometime around the 1800s it was socially unacceptable for men to have facial hair. So much so, that a person with facial hair might be assaulted. Even people in dire situations whose primary concern was basic survival counted shaving regularly as a necessity. It also said that this taboo disappeared quite suddenly and for reasons that are not well understood.

      Personally, I think Grace Bedell sent letters to everybody and that did it.

  2. The only way it survives at all is through a pure love of the game and a stubborn solidarity, the irrational enthusiasm of thousands of hockey-playing daughters protected by the sheer will of thousands of hockey-loving mothers.

    I’m at a loss to see why this is in any way an inadequate reason.
