    Virgil has annoyed me at cons. Two years in a row he walked up and pretended to crush my head.

    Chicago Comicon held in at the Pick Congress, not sure if it was 1979 or 1980. It was the year that they combined it with a Dr. Who convention. (This was when Tom Baker was the good doctor.) That was also the year that the a/c went out at the hotel and it was 90+ every single day of the convention... outside. Making it damn near 95+ inside! And these idiot Dr. Who fans were completely decked out in Baker Dr. Who outfits. They had people passing out left and right, and they still refused to change out of costume!
    1979 or 1980? Holy shit old timer! most of these kids weren't even born yet. I was though because I am old. Not THAT old, but still.

I guess no one was feeling overly funny that day.
    Oh, so you actually WERE a terrorist.

    wait ...whut????


    Geez and I wasn't even Sithed up!



    Hey, at least I didn't specify if you were the craziest, weirdest, or scariest thing!

    Spoiler:
    Between you and me, I'm leaning towards craziest...seeing as how you and Mr. Das started talking wookie right there on the floor. But crazy is good!

    My first con was in 1978. I was 15. I haven't missed a Chicago con in all that time. Thankfully we have C2E2 now, so I can ignore Wizard's show.

    I cannot name names or talk about a lot of crazy shit I have seen or done. I will think of some weird con goer stories later, but my FAVORITE experience was buying Garth Ennis a beer and drinking with Raven (the wrestler, not Gregory).

    I saw a guy in a Superman costume piss on his own cape in the urinal at WWPhilly

    The best experience I ever had was sitting at the bar in Baltimore in 2009 (or was is 2010?) with Jim Valentino, Walt Simonson, Mark McKenna, Ryan Bodenheim, Kris Simon, Mike Dolce and Officer Mike White (if you've been to a con you've probably met the guy) just bullshitting about convention stories just like the ones discussed here.

    Wasn't there a guy on this board who did the same thing to Brian here?
