    Oh yeah, 20/20. I'm 59.

    Superman was such a dope. Instead of hanging around a newspaper office. He could have been such an excellent orthopedic surgeon, with his x-ray vision.

    Talking about under achievers, Dorothy! Shes got magic ruby slippers, friends that have killed for her and would do so again, full rein over the Emerald Palace, and she gives it all up for a pig farm in Kansas? Bet she spent many years in therapy once she reached her teens!
