Not true Taylor! Good spies can die of natural causes. They're not immortal.

They might've been good once, but after they're dead, they're not much good at spying anymore.

Precisely.  Who says you'd make a bad spy?  Reading comprehension is a facet of good espionage, right?

I want a Commodore 64, just so I know what some of the first geeks felt like.

The first geeks were getting old when that came out.  I was a geek with a Flexowriter used with an English Electric Leo Marconi KDF9.

I have one too, somewhere in my attic... unless one of my brother's stole it! Ah, I remember playing on that, even though I was tinie tiny when we used it. We did manage to get it to work a couple of years ago though which was fantastic. And I have Rampage for the Wii now, which has the old versions on it!

Now my geeky/slightly strange desires...

Whenever I get one book of a series I always want to buy the rest, just to have the whole series on my bookcase. If there's one missing I have to get it!

And I would love to be in one of those great iconic films, Star Wars for example, or anything that people years later still love. Not even acting in it, but just to be a part of it. I want to be part of something great!! (But then I guess most people do...)

I want a Star Trek transporter.  I want to be able to step onto a glowing circle on the floor and three seconds later be at work, or at the store, or at my friend's house, or back home when I'm done.  All without stepping outside, because I don't like the outdoors.

Unrealistic geeky desires, I agree with TwistedRemedy.

In fact, I have a theory that most programmers secretly want to be wizards. What better field for a would-be wizard than one where you can create your own realities with obscure magic words? :)

Maybe that's just me though.

Well yeah that might be in captivity, like in Finding Nemo, the captured ones just lose it after a while. I was talking more open water. Unless fish are actually geniuses, and I could be the scribe of fishes and their fishy philosophy and share it with the rest of the world. True fact, fishes figured out global warming and cancer ages ago.

If we're going superpowers than right now I'd have to go with teleportation but only via shadow. As in the ability to drop through a shadow in one place and materialise out of a shadow in another place. It would go so well with my Nightmare costume that I would be forced to become a super hero...or villain. Depends on the day I guess.

Alternately, my geeky desire would be to write an awesome paper on how sexual attraction develops in a non-visual/visually-limited setting (chat rooms, forums etc...), get my Master's degree and eventually work as a private practise Sex Therapist. Though as this is kind of my life-goal I guess it isn't much of a secret? Maybe I'd fight crime on the side.

I'd just go for normal teleportation and then pretend it's limited to shadow. That way you reserve the option of surprising the hell out of your nemesis with a snappy one liner and a severe ass kicking.

I have an idea for a superhero who starts out one day waking up, only to find that he is slowly turning into paint. Over time, he realizes he has paint powers and can do such cool things as make giant murals through acts of will, hide himself in works of art, and in one case a terrible pun where he shoots out a jet of black paint, on which pursuers proceed to slip on. Another similarly underpowered and misfit hero yells out "Slick! Oil paint!". His true power is the Power of Ideas, one of the methods to defeat an evil force that threatens to destroy the City.


he will NOT be able to paint the future. fuck you Heroes.

I've seen them before, but they don't actually originate from Australia. They were a stock dog bred in the USA. I think they got their name from Australian immigrant farmers who used them, or something odd like that.
