Journal JoshDM's Journal: What do Nerds give for Halloween?

For the last few years, I've given comics books to kids for Halloween. Ain't it Cool News even published my guide for doing so. I wonder what other geeks give people for Halloween; CDs with free PC games on them? Cheapass Games packs? Heroclix?

From the article:

I have given out comics from my house for the last 4 years, and only once has a child complained. Most of the time I get happy kids who start requesting certain heroes like the X-Men or Batman or Spider-Man. Once I handed a kid a recent, slightly-bent, issue of JLA and his eyes lit up and he proclaimed, "Cool! Old-fashioned comic books!" I didn't know whether to smile or take it back and kick him off of my porch. I let him keep it. You'll get that sometimes. Don't let them make you feel too old.

Trying to be happy is like trying to build a machine for which the only specification is that it should run noiselessly.
