he must brush his teeth with gunpowder I'm embarrassed to admit how much I've learned from comic books. A few specific examples spring to mind, which I won't share here, but perhaps in person if you ask nicely. Sometimes someone will try and teach me something, and I won't get it. But the next morning I wake up with an image in my head and I call the person back and say "oh, so it's like the Batman, with his utility belt, and costume" and they say "right." And it's not that I don't read other things, or that I'm incapable of understanding anything that isn't illustrated and melodramatic, or that I'm superficial. At least, I hope that's not why, but who could say?
