In my effort to share a small portion of my childhood with you, so far the reactions have been heartwarming.
  • "[accusing me of future child abuse] Yep, and this just keep repeating itself with each new generation."
  • "I used to wonder how someone could turn out like you did and i guess i have my answer"
  • "A religious upbringing is a fantastic way to royally screw up a human being."

I'm not even going to mention what redditors are saying about me. I am now imagining that instead of writing about my childhood, I'm an old war veteran writing about my lost leg:

  • "I bet your kids won't have legs either."
  • "I used to wonder why you walked so funny and I guess now I have my answer."
  • "Shooting off a guy's leg is fantastic way to screw up a human being."

Apparently, war-veterans, one of most ignored groups on the planet, rank just above faith-veterans in terms of respect. Damned if you keep it in and damned if you let it out. I suddenly realize why so many people have an aversion to sharing.

I guess what initially turned me on to "god" were the horrible thoughts of death I had when I was young... and then when I got older this morphed into a kind of primal terror of unconsciousness... especially when I imagined non-being... I mean, once you've attained consciousness, how do you handle the idea of unconsciousness? I can't. And I won't. ;)

I just told another guy whose comic I read regularly who is asking for guest strips since he broke his wacom to make friends with you and ask you for one. Because I remember you asking how one goes about doing and getting guest strips. Of course, there's no telling if he actually does any of this. http://pajamaforest.com is his website.

I had a similar fear of a thunderstorm. Except I had been playing fallout 3 before i went to bed... and thought the thunder was a nuclear apocalypse

I STILL LOVE YOU SWB. And I was always afraid of thunderstorms as a kid, mostly because around here they tend to produce several tornadoes. Nowadays I like thunderstorms.

When I was little, I loved the rain as I do now, but I was sure that during a thunderstorm in the middle of the night lightning would hit the house and I would be the first to burn to death so I refused to go to sleep in my room. But during the day I loved them.

I must've been an odd child. Always have and always loved thunderstorms.

Such a benevolent God he must be.. Kill people who don't follow my ridiculous rules which over generations got twisted around so much that no one actually knows what I originally said..

I laughed out loud at 'That was not lightning. 'That was a death-bolt from God if I ever heard one.' Awesome line, sorry you had to live through it to make this :P
