I saw Harinder on my way into work this morning, so we chatted for a bit. He said that he had seen a batman bumper sticker on a chevy, and it made him think about batman versus superman. The end-point of his reverie: Batman is a "normal" human who uses technology, while Superman just has super powers. I pointed out that Batman's ninja skills are certainly exceptional, and can be considered barely human, and also that Superman's fortress of solitude was made using alien technology and not super powers (at least as the latest movie would have it). Harinder just shook his head, and said that even so, the general trend holds.
The moral of the story: Old geeks never get less geeky.
