    You obviously have never been to Dragon Con. :)

    Hot women all over the place there.

    You obviously don't go to the right conventions- I've never found them short of gorgeous and interesting babes. In fact I married one, who I met at a convention.

    As for the actual subject of the article-

    Just been sick the once, and that was upon returning home from Rura Pontins, the notorious Warp One con at a dying holiday camp in Morecambe in 1996, at which about two-thirds of the folks, including me, got food poisoning. No way to avoid that one, really...

    Yeah, too late now...I'm hitched.

    I went to conventions from the 70's through the 90's (When the conventions became one-day T-shirt and coffee mug sales)...there wasn't much to look at in those days.

    I gotta say - I think the idea of granny Vulcans rocks! Age brings serenity and wisdom, which Vulcans already possess in spades - a granny Vulcan would be serene and wise twice over! The kids can all go have their Playstations and what have you - the cool place to hang is with the smart people who have been there, done that, and have all the stories to tell. Roll on the granny Vulcan revolution!

    I used to get a lot of con lurgi back in the late 70's and early 80's, but over the past few years, I have been fit and healthy after every convention. Now that I have said that, the next one I go to, I'll get something nasty......:(

    :lol: Yeah, but I wouldn't have wanted to date one (when I was a single con-goer)...or a Starpig either...

    That's where I was going with it.

    I don't care if people are old or fat, but I know what I personally find attractive and that was part of another conversation here...so, in context...

    I don't think I'm alone in that sentiment either. Otherwise there would be threads here for glorifying granny-Vulcans and Starpigs. But, there's not...:lol:

    I think both the terms "granny-Vulcan" and "Starpig" are priceless...how can a word "bully"? Believe me, as a youngster Star Trek fan I know what true "bullying" is...and it didn't just involve words. :lol:

    People are such wimps now.

    I agree. I don't care what people look like when they wear their uniforms etc. Part of costuming is making them, sitting in on cold winter nights, or whatever, putting costumes together; researching fabrics, tracking down embellishments.

    My wife gets round the figure issue by cosplaying as Londo Mollari.

    But she doesn't weigh anywhere near 300lbs - but she has lovely curves and big tits...
