I am not going to even try and pretend that I am not completely brain dead today.
I just got back from Dragon*Con in Atlanta and it was AWESOME! It was seriously the most fun I have had at a convention. Ever.
I am now a mushy pile of exhaustion and happy and so today’s AI is going to be a simple and fun exercise in, what if.
I promise next week I will stimulate all your brains with a deep and challenging discussion on how we can make the world a better place. But for now, let’s take a leisurely walk down fantasy lane while I recuperate, rehydrate and dry-clean my Angry Bird hat.
PS: Rebecca might be the most bad-ass elf ever to pick up a sword.

I saw people cosplaying as pretty much every single superhero character this weekend. And I am wondering, if you could pick any one particular superpower to have for REALS what would you choose? Would you pick the power to read minds or super strength? Would you pick an ability to travel through time or the power of flight? Or something else entirely? Then, would you use your powers for good or is all superpower ultimately corruptible?
