2. I got to play with three cute little kids today.
3. My wife and I went to our first "Strengthening Relationships" class, and I think it went well.
Let's just get this out on the table now: I like "The Deadliest Warrior" on Spike. I'm a geek, so it interests me when they club dummies and measure how hard they dummy was hit and how much damage that caused per square inch. I'm also a D&D nerd, so I like how they use an odds simulator to know who would win out of one thousand times (or whatever number it is). I'm also something of a history buff, so I like how they explain the culture of each warrior, and why they would have used the weapons they did. If you don't know, The Deadliest Warrior is a tv show that takes all of the available information about a type of warrior in history, and matches them up against some other warrior. So, Samurai vs. Gladiator, was one of the match ups. To say the least, it's very interesting.
But, aside from all the other types of nerd that I am, I am definitely a Psych nerd, so my favorite episodes are usually those where the culture of the warrior is still somewhat alive. The best episode of all (or at least the one that most readily comes to mind) is Comanche vs. Mongol. The reason why this is so great, is because the guy who is showing the Comanche weapons has grown up a Comanche, and thinks he is still fighting for the tribe... always. He feels a need to make jabs at the Mongol guys when the Comanche weapon wins, and scoffs when it loses. What makes it even better is the Mongol guy who is also making the same jabs and scoffs. It always gets heated, and they always sound like idiots. Testosterone fueled arguing, is there anything funnier? Probably, but not by a lot. Anyway, I just find it funny.
