Say it ain't so, Vin

Do you remember the quote from the X-Files episode, Jose Chung is from Outer Space?
I didn't spend all those years playing Dungeons and Dragons and not learn a little something about courage.
Turns out, it's true. Vin Diesel is deeply devoted to Dungeon and Dragons and nobody's tougher than Vin Diesel. He could rip your throat right out.

From an interview with Conan O'Brien:
Vin: I created a character... No one knows this, but in Triple-X, one of the tattoos, right above my belly-button, or below my belly button, I don't know why I'm saying this *hoots from audience*, was the name Melkor. And that came from a character that I had, uh..
Conan: That you created in Dungeons and Dragons?
Vin: that I created. That was a Drow witch-hunter. Double-specialized witch-hunter. but this is all
Conan: There are so many nerds watching right now who are just thrilled. Cause you're making them cool, suddenly. All these guys are watching going "Go, Vin Diesel, Go! Go!" All hail, Melkor, you know?
So, we all think, D &D must be pretty cool. Then I realize how I found out that Diesel plays D&D. From the trust IMDB message boards, this time for Dungeons and Dragons, the Movie.

(in response to taunting)
Bahahaha, thats soo funny, but no seriously you moron, don't come here and make fun of something that is far beyond your pathetic scope of intelligence so you can make your pitiful existence all the more interesting. Besides you do realize that Vin Diseal a highly paid famous celebrity played dnd? I'm sure you chop off your tiny left nut to live a day like Vin lives (considering you come online to make fun of gammers in your spare time, thats sad) so step off and go pester small children, they may yet be less brilliant then you.
Yeeeeaaah...I think Vin Diesel might just be the exception to the rule.

(Just to be clear, I don't play D&D. I'm clearly far too cool for that. I'm thinking a blogging, Star Trek watching physicist is still well-steeped in coolness. Either that, or I'm just the Vin Diesel of the physics community)

Confession: I'm a comic book geek. That makes me a loser.

I used to work in a head shop. That makes me cool.

The head shop was owned by a guy who also owned a comic shop. That makes him a loser. The comic shop was next door.

Many of my friends play roleplay games like D&D, Star Wars, Cyberpunk, and Vampire. That makes them losers.

They're also psychotics who love getting into fights, drink all night, and have their own groupies of fairly attractive women. That makes them cool.

And yeah. I've role played before. That makes me a loser.

But I'm also a Cubs fan. ...which makes me a loser.

And I uh, love Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. ...*sigh* loser.

... in my spare time, I play video games on my PS2. ...I should have quit when I was ahead.
