I think the only time I’ve been first in line for something with a long wait was a movie. Back when I could still tolerate movie theaters I liked to go see the big blockbusters on opening day. Half the enjoyment was watching the expression on people’s faces as they would walk up 20 minutes before showtime and freak out that there was a line. There was always a group of them that had no idea this was opening day for the biggest movie of the summer and now have to walk the entire length of the theater to find the end of the line.

Today’s Maximumble is under pressure.
