I have seen this happen in a number of places... and it always confuses me as to why people would be so needlessly angry.Still I suppose its better than creepily pandering to her.
This is the same guy who will later complain he can't find a girlfriend.
Well said!Who the hell do those attractive girls think they are, going around engaging people in conversation without knowing anything of the mighty Galactus??? Hah!
Hahaha, well done, idiot.
some people are just destined to be virgins forever.
Social awkwardness is only enhanced by fanboy anger. Good stuff.
1. I assume you mean physically attractive which is a shallow way to define someone as 'attractive'2. To this dude a chick reading whatever the a comic book featuring Galactus' first appearance would probably be incredibly attractive to him regardless of her physical appearance.3. The chances of that happening are ridiculously slim and he is probably aware of this.I have to say I sort of respect that adherence to principle despite it almost certain he is aware his quest for perfect comic-geek woman is hopeless. This man is Comic Shop Sisyphus. Verily, he should be praised not mocked!
Come on, could you not scare all the albino unicorns out of the store!P.S. Zombies killed Galactus, so how tough is he really....
But zombies will kill everyone.. it's inevitable. Everybody knows that.The poor guy was probably just shy and went into fanboy anger mode to hide that fact. Fanboy anger overcomes all.
Autism is a real mother-fucker, it would seem.
I call bullshit... a "girl" in a comic store... whatever...
Yeah... he acted all angry because he didn't care that she was physically attractive. Yeah. I'm sure he was thinking all that through ;)
I bet I have that same shirt.
Galactus, devourer of your chance of getting a date. I thought Galactus was a cloud.
She showed interest. He had a chance to make her a fan! My boyfriend didn't know about Doctor Who when I met him, but he sure does now. xP
That guy is obviously already knee-deep in teh ladeez.
I'm torn, because he IS in fact acting like a dick. However, the fact that he is sticking to his principles to the point where he is acting like a dick despite a hot girl is admirable.Unless he's gay... Then he's just a gay dick.
Either he's into the fellas or he's that much of an idiot...either way, there was no reason for him to be an ass.
This man has had more inane conversations ruining his chances at dating so many times...
I don't know, was he a nerd?Sounds more like a hipster in a 'cool' tee shirt to me, and you know how they get when you miss their reference.Just saying is all.
I'm on the side of people saluting this guy. It seems that society has double standards when it comes to men having standards about women."What?! He doesn't want to have sex with ALL WOMEN and enter into shallow relationships?! He must be a jerk!!!"So what if he came off like an elitist nerd? Good for him for staying true to his interests and not letting a girl's looks control him. He could be rewarded by eventually finding a chick as bitter about fictional details as he is.
To me this isn't about whether he would want to have sex with her or not. It's that he acted very poorly. If someone asks a question about something you're interested in and your reaction is to try and make them feel like shit, that's just really bad behaviour. "Staying true to your interests" doesn't mean you need to be a jerk.
It cracks me up that for every comic about some ridiculous asshole, there's at least one person defending him.Some stranger complimented him and he was rude and offensive. Whether the girl was attractive is largely irrelevant (although it certainly doesn't help the guy look any more in touch with reality).
He's an arse because it's one thing to be picky about who you date - for example, there's a good reason I'm married to a fellow history buff - and another entirely to be rude to people for not knowing obscure things.
I'm a DC fangirl dating a Marvel fanboy. How dare I be so shallow and only date him for his looks! >:[Come on, guys, REALLY!? He was a jerk. End of story.
Here is why it's ok to laugh at this nitwit.1) Being rude and confrontational to people you don't know is a Bad Thing. The only reason to do it is to make yourself feel good by tearing another down. That's not a "principle," and ignorance of the concept of "Galactus" does not justify such treatment.2) It's funny when rude people are so dimly self-aware that they ruin their chances to get something ELSE that they probably want (attention from an attractive girl) because they can't even put aside their own selfishly dickish nature for five seconds.3) There is a ~95% probability that, at some point in the last 24 hours, this guy has bitched at a long-suffering "friend" that no one loves him and everyone sucks.In summary, this guy is rude (justifies laughing at him) and almost certainly stupid (the reason why it's funny to laugh at him). If you are non-ironically saluting this guy, it is time to ask yourself if you are needlessly rude and/or self-selecting out of the gene pool for this reason.
^ I was laughing before reading your post. Now I'm just contemplating the crippling loneliness of the life you just described...
I've had this discussion with several friends recently wondering whether or not a complete or partial lack of social skills bordering on this level of stupid might in fact be Autism (most likely Asperger's). Which if this is indeed the case kind of pisses me off since it would give them an excuse to be an asshole and take away everyone else's ability to make fun of them without looking like a complete asshole.
its called using the neg
I'm so depressed that someone actually had to explain why it was okay to make fun of someone so obviously mockable. These comments threads are almost as stupid as the customers themselves, sometimes.
To the people suggesting Asperger's: I highly doubt it. The folks I've known with Asperger's (and they vary) do tend to fixate on individual interests to an incredibly detailed degree, but they've never been assholes about it. If anything, they are astoundingly and needlessly polite, and very literal and formal about things. It's awkward in an entirely different way.But I'm no expert. I'm sure it's entirely possible to have Asperger's and still be a jerk. I'm just saying it's not an excuse to be one.
To the folks suggesting this guy was impressive for sticking to his guns, and that guys in fact don't want to have sex with every attractive woman ever- THEY DO. They may not want a relationship, but they do want to sleep with you. Fact of life.Thus, we can conclude that this guy is a dick/idiot. Tada!*jazz hands*
Why would it matter if the girl is attractive or not? So sick of this pandering to 'beauty', it's so very short sighted.Anyway, I laughed really hard at the drawing, and think you did an excellent job.
who is galactus?And why does he devour worlds?
