Stolen or not, he's an Air Force captain, which is not the same thing as a Naval captain. It's equal to being a Lieutenant, navy wise.

And the navy pretty much always get better-looking uniforms.

And better food. One of my uncles told me to avoid the other services, because only the navy brings their entire kitchen with them. :)

But best Captain? Captain Jack Sparrow. Or Captain Ben Sisko, if sticking to Trek captains.


Pathfinder Adventure Subscriber

Hornblower was captain for a bit, wasn't he. 'Cause he'd be my choice.

Captain Honor Harrington?


I like Captain Crunch...


Captain Tightpants.

Noooo, books must be treated like delicate flowers of knowledge and story! (I had a friend in high school who told me I read paperbacks like there was a vampire inside, because I didn't want to break the spine.)

This used to drive me crazy when I worked in a library. A patron was checking out a brand new book and and told me how happy they were to get to break the spine. I fetched another newish book from the repair shelf and showed them the binding split in half and the pages falling out. New hardcovers (and any paperback) are poorly made and the glue doesn't hold for long if you do that. It's book abuse! don't make call the library police!

My books rarely get opened more than 90 degrees unless it a rare spiral bound book. It makes it a pain never being able to open them on a flat surface, but almost my entire collection of books is close to pristine. About the only thing I can't control is the covers losing their ultra-shiny luster over time and use, and on small paperbacks the edges of the pages will get a little dirty from my hands holding it for hours no matter how well washed they are. Even I'm not obsessive enough to wear gloves when I read though.

As always, there's an XKCD for that.

Gary: good god how is it almost five
Christopher: Time goblins
Gary: i thought we sprayed for those last week
Liz: They've adapted to it
Christopher: It killed 99% of them, but the remaining 1% have presented with severe monsterism.
Christopher: We really need to stop getting our tech from the mustachioed guy in the van.
Liz: Or Krieger
Gary: i guess if they're time goblins maybe we actually sprayed for them next week
Christopher: Wait, this might be the timeline where we didn't spray for them. Where's that map...
Liz: I Blame Cosmo.
Christopher: Makes sense, given that they venerate him as their god.
Gary: is THAT what's wrong with them?
Gary: explains a LOT
Liz: It's a large factor, yes


Is it cause or effect, though?
