TR Contest: Your Erroneous Nerd Beliefs

?It’s Friday! It’s the weekend! It’s a TR contest not sponsored by someone! Meaning I’m actually giving away Topless Robot shirts again! Not that I mind anybody being kind and generous enough to offer you knuckleknobs free shit or anything, but sometimes, it is nice to be able to give away things with the actual site name on it. Anyways, in case you guys have forgotten, here’s what the official TR shirt looks like, as kindly modeled by one of Topless Roboteer Greg Easton’s model friends.

Anyways, I had such a good time reading your stories last weekend that I decided to do another one. This time, I want tales of the nerdy, but incorrect beliefs you once held, and how they got you into trouble/shamed you/made for an entertaining story. For example.

? Did you make a bet that Luke and Leia would end up together back in 1979?
? Did you ever publicly defend Rob Liefeld’s artwork?
? Did you even swear Ben Reilly was the real Spider-Man?
? Did you ever deny Optimus Prime was dead, even though you saw him buy it on screen in the Transformers movie?

That sort of thing — and like I said, if you made a big deal about your incorrect stance, or got into a fight over it, or something similar, the better. You guys have three entries each — I’m not really looking for everyone to enter three times a piece, though, I just want those people who were consistently wrong about shit to be able to tell more than one tale. The contest ends at 12:01 am EST on Monday, August 15th. Have a good weekend, and I’ll see you cats on Monday.
