Actually, the point I'm trying to make is that I'm the certified guy.  It didn't really teach me anything practical.  I memorized a lot of facts for a test, which I have forgotten in less than 6 months, and have no practical application.

I'm certified to give first aid. I aced the class, but you do not want me to try to help you in an emergency. I remember jack squat, and that was last year.

I am "certified" to drive a forklift.  And you do not want me driving any forklifts ever.  I'd probably kill someone.

(And no, I do not drive forklifts at work or anywhere else.  But I am certified to do so.)

Called it.

Congratulations! That was a bold prediction. I would have never in a million years guessed Calvin & Hobbes as the winner. Look out Nostradamus!

I'm full of them.  You should hear my political prognostications.  I've correctly predicted that the last 5 U.S. Presidents would be rich guys.

I had a hunch that The Avengers would be one of the top five grossing movies the week it came out.

I could probably be of assistance on that latter point....

Here's mine, in case anyone cares:

1 The Far Side (The only comic I've actually bought more than one collection of)
2 Bloom County/Outland/Opus (I consider Bloom County, Outland and Opus to be three iterations of the same strip, so I won't be listing them seperately. But if you want to pick one, go with Bloom County)
3 Doonesbury
4 Calvin and Hobbes
5 Dilbert
6 Close to Home (the spiritual succesor to The Far Side)

7 Sally Forth (seriously under-appreciated)
8 For Better or For Worse
9 Pearls Before Swine
10 Non Sequiter
11 Baby Blues
12 Fox Trot
13 Pogo
14 Mother Goose and Grimm

15 Rose is Rose
16 Rhymes with Orange (BTW, door hinge)
17 Luann
18 Jump Start
19 Blondie
20 Big Nate
21 Penny Arcade
22 Curtis
23 Zippy the Pinhead
24 Garfield minus Garfield (sure, why not)
25 Gasoline Alley (never read a single one of these, but Rifftrax keeps referencing it. And appatrently it's one of the longest running strips ever.)

My favorite Far Side:


Luposlipaphobia: The fear of being pursued by timber wolves around a kitchen table while wearing socks on a newly waxed floor.
