Comic Book Hero

In popular media, the people who own and frequent comic book shops are often depicted as fat, nerdy and uncoordinated. This is, of course, a generalization. It may well be a correct generalization, but it is a generalization, nonetheless. As rebuttal to this picture, I would like to call the reader’s attention to a story that recently came to us from “across the pond”. No, not Lake Meredith, the big pond, the Atlantic. Or, possibly, the Pacific. No, no, I’m pretty sure it’s the Atlantic.

The clues were all there:

* Brian Austin Green did a pilot for a new series recently (Though since they killed off his character a couple weeks back, I'd hoped he was simply leaving the cast)

That Plane Crash in the Hudson River

Republibot 3.0's picture

This isn't even remotely Science Fiction, but it is pretty amazing: This is footage of the plane ditching in the river in Manhattan just the other day.

The plane hits the water just about 2:00 in to the clip, but the amazing completely remarkable and heroic part is that a ferryboat gets on the scene in three minutes!
