    OG?
    Original Gangster?

    He's so rich he keeps his pins outside!

    Was going to say, did he haul a machine outside just to play? I feel special when I watch a movie on my laptop outside.

    This was an event at Stone Brewery called HopCon that happened yesterday. They had a Theatre of Magic pin and a couple of vids too.

    a few years ago he tweeted "This STTNG won't let me get past the rank of Ensign ... It's like it knows"

    Does this make Wil Wheaton cooler?
    Or does this make us more nerdy?

    #11 4 years ago

    Yes.

    Don't know but I still remember the first time I argued with him on Slashdot, feeling like I'd reached nerd wizard mode.

    *GASP* You mean to tell me that b-list celebs (that's right, Wil) like things that I like?! Pfffft

    While I kinda understand where you are coming from, it's fun to see somebody that has almost 3,000,000 twitter followers (including me) tweet out about his Pinball Arcade and pinball experiences. Helps elevate the status of the hobby and evangelize it. Not that different than the BNL which got a lot of play on this forum and I am guessing Wil has a much bigger social media presence then they do.

    I'm just joking around at the expense of celebrity worshippers, I actually like Wil. His tabletop series is fun, and the narration he did for both of Ernest Cline's audiobooks is top notch.

    Yeah, that's prolly why I am loyal to him too. He was on my all time fav TV show and is now into two of my fav hobbies.

    That, and he seems like he's not a jerk. He's a nerd, like us, into our nerdy stuff, and is cool about it.

    Hard to get more likeable than that.

    If his big crime is "he didn't find a cure for cancer AND solve all of the world's energy problems
    ... I am guilty of that too. I better get off the net and start cracking...

    He's not rich enough to not have credit dot.
