Dad of the year
This dude re-coded The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker so all the pronouns and descriptions were gender-flipped. That way, his little girl could play as a heroine rescuing her little brother.
Let me repeat that: he RE-CODED THE GAME so his LITTLE GIRL could be the hero, instead of playing as a male character and seeing him rescue a girl.
Truly the dad I wish I had growing up.
Splendid. Delightful wife plays with her name entered as Girl.
When I play Zelda, my name is (Er) considerably more obscene.

Colin TBTMAC says kind, interesting and disturbing things about the last episode of Journey Into Mystery. I pull out a quote beneath the cut, but the whole thing definitely worth reading.
One day in 1925, J Robert Oppenheimer was travelling in a third-class railway carriage to Southampton. The man who within 20 years would become a central figure in the development of quantum physics and world famous as the so-called “father of the atomic bomb” was trying to read a book on thermodynamics. But he couldn’t concentrate because the couple opposite were having sex. “When the man left,” wrote Oppenheimer’s friend Francis Fergusson, “he [Oppenheimer] kissed the woman. She did not seem unduly surprised. But he was at once overcome with remorse, fell on his knees, his feet sprawling, and with many tears begged her pardon.”
The story that Ray Monk relates in his superb new biography of Oppenheimer doesn’t end there: at Southampton station Oppenheimer was standing on some stairs when he saw the woman below and tried to drop his suitcase on her head. He missed. From interview with Ray Monk on his new Oppenheimer biography.

Any ideas for a good one, folks? Most of the ones which leap to mind seem kinda ugly or at least kind of crass.
I have no idea why I did IRON MAN MARVEL NOW in capitals
