Josh Barnett is a total geek

I love Josh Barnett, but sometimes he makes my nerd alert go off so hard I have to resist the temptation to stuff him in a locker and steal his lunch money. Case point: At the end of a myspace bulletin, he tacks on at the end ‘Currently reading: Chapter War (Warhammer 40,000) by Ben Counter’.

If you spent your youth smoking pot and getting some hot teenage breast action on, you may not be familiar with Warhammer. Here’s what Wikipedia says:

Warhammer 40,000 (informally known as Warhammer 40K, WH40K, W40K or just 40K) is a science fantasy game produced by Games Workshop. The game depicts combat between the armies of the fictional universe of the 41st millennium using 28 mm scale (approximately 1:65) miniature figurines which represent futuristic soldiers, creatures and vehicles of war.

That doesn’t really give you a feel for the whole ‘WH40K’ thing, so let me try to summarize: It’s about the lamest thing in the history of the universe. The only thing lamer than the Warhammer game are Warhammer books. They’re basically harlequin novels for four eyed freaks, with robo-swords and starships instead of tits and ass. Here’s the description of the book Josh is reading, courtesy of Amazon.com:

Having stabilised their gene-seed, and brought a halt to their mutation, the Soul Drinkers start rebuilding their Chapter with new recruits. But the recruits have their own ideas. Rather than protect the Imperium, they wish to wage war against it. With the Imperial forces and the Inquisition closing in on the renegade Chapter, can Sarpedon rally his troops to face the true enemy?

Honestly, Josh … WTF??? I always figured you for a Forgotten Realms or Dark Sun kinda guy. Hell, I imagined we’d meet up and shoot the shit about Dragonlance and discuss the pros and cons of third edition AD&D versus second edition. But alas you have to destroy my fantasy and reveal yourself to be a … science fiction freak of all things! I’ve failed my savings throw against disappointment.
