To his friend...

  1. I can at least name 10 presidents does that count?

  2. No. No it is not the same thing.

  3. I'll bet he doesn't.

  4. It's not too bad, as all 10 are ones you've heard of (in two cases mostly because of how/why they succeeded the person before). I managed 9 after a few minutes thinking about it. Blanked on Carter.

  5. I would mock him, but then I realize that I am in the same boat as he is.

  6. I'm Canadian and I managed.

  7. The same thing? Not quite. Equally useful? Yes.

  8. What I'm getting from this: BATMAN FOR PRESIDENT!

  9. Is it bad that the first thing I thought was "Does that include the guys who played them in the old film serials from the 1930's?"?

    1. I hope not, because that was my first thought. "If you're going to make a claim like that, you better be able to back it up."

    2. Bob Kane invented Batman in 1939. The serials were from the 1940s, not 1930s.

      Also: Louis Wilson. And no, I did not just look that up.

  10. Reminds me of a conversation I had in England, where I explained that, "Despite the news reports on politics, most Americans are apolitical. For example, most Americans can't name their Congress-people." I then proceed to name my state's two senators, and uh....

  11. I can name every President back to Hoover, then I get lost.

    As far as Batmans? Well, there was the TV guy, West. Michael Keaton and Christian Bale. Emmm... I think Val Kilmer played him once (or at least, he claimed to have done so in an episode of Life's Too Short). And I'm done.

    So I'm the opposite of this guy, basically. And neither of us has a useful skill.

    1. Don[t forget to mention George Clooney's Batman! Hey, don't be embarrassed about getting lost after Herbert Hoover. That's like 13 presidents ago, and far more advanced than 90% of the kids who graduated from high school and college last year. I can go back a little father than the 31st president. Just remember that Calvin Coolidge and Warren G Harding are sandwiched between Herbert Hoover and Woodrow Wilson. Who succeeded Teddy Roosevelt once vice president William H. Taft after serving a 4 year term. Who succeeded once vice president Teddy Roosevelt, who succeeded William McKinley after he was assassinated in Buffalo, NY. And that pretty much takes you all the way back to the turn of the last century.

  12. Okay, I'm going to seriously try this off the top of my head without looking it up or at the comments. Going backwards: Obama, Bush Jr, Clinton, Bush Sr, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, Johnson, Kennedy. Did I get it?

    1. Hey, I was right! Also Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck. Also Kevin Conroy, a bunch of other voice actors, and some guys who played Batman in old 40's movie serials, though knowing THEIR names would be somewhat alarming.

    2. Lewis Wilson (as mentioned above) and Robert Lowery. I'd also count Diedrich Bader for The Brave and The Bold. I'm admittedly blanking on the name of the gent who voiced him on the Superfriends, but you could arguably also count Will Friedle from Batman Beyond since he said Batman and not Bruce Wayne. God help you if you want the names of every actor in every parody and fan film.

    3. The moment people start listing the actors who played him in the porn parodies, I'm leaving.

    4. Superfriends Batman was voiced first by Olan Soul and later Adam West. I don't remember which one voiced Batman when he met Scooby Doo.
