I know you stated "No particular order", but I find it interesting that in your train of thought, Stan Lee and Dave Sim came in higher than Adolf Hitler.

HemlockMan said...

I just wrote 'em down as they occurred to me. Stan Lee's on there because I hate seeing someone taking credit for another's work. Sim is on there because he holds some pretty poisonous ideas--which is not that bad a thing, generally, save that he's in a unique position to spread them and infect others.

Hitler's good and dead. Sim is still alive, and I find his misogynistic rantings on a par with those of any neo-Nazi.

Saw HWA and Chestnut blight on the list, but where's the gypsy moth? That one's gonna be a whole lot of fun as it flies farther south.

HemlockMan said...

Yeah, I've seen the effects of gypsy moth. Just one more monstrous invasive to fear.

We had the Gypsy Moth plague come through the north East 20 years ago. It was horrible. We still see some of the littler buggers, but nowhere like we had.

It did a lot of damage to Shenandoah National Park. I visited there during the worst of that.
