Do you know how much time I want to spend talking about super heroes? None. Zero time.

But I found myself having someone talk to me about his favorite hero man the other day, and I did my usual thing of politely feigning interest until I'd had enough.

"Do you think he could beat me at arm wrestling?" I asked.

Pausing only briefly and genuinely puzzled by the question, he said, "I think most people could beat you at arm wrestling."

I found the frankness with which he said this upsetting, so I arm wrestled him and he beat me.
