Hello, I'm Charles Akins How May I Help You?

I'm doing another Ask Me Anything here on the blog folks! 

What's that mean for you? It means that you can ask me a question about any topic under the sun and I'll answer it to the best of my ability. If you're really nice I might even be able to get the wife to join in as well. 

You can leave your question here in the comments below, over on google+, you can tweet me @Thatakinsboy, or you can e-mail me. You've got until Thursday, April 3, 2014 at 11:59 PM EST to get your questions in because I'll be answering them all on Friday April 4!

  2. Okay, but remember you said anything...

    1. How're liking Marvel's Agents of SHIELD? Why or why not? Is it gonna get a second season?

    2. You have made reference to being a tough guy enough times that I've started wondering why. Martial arts background? Gangland? Former golden gloves champ?

    3. A bunch of my friends are increasingly concerned about America's civil/military divide. I agree it's a problem. We fought two wars with something like 1% of the population on active duty, and we put the whole thing on credit, so no one has yet felt economic pain as a result. Military members think that a more informed, more personally committed populace will be a more responsible governing body. That, bottom line, if more people have skin in the game, then we're far less apt to find ourselves in inexplicable overseas boondoggles. What do you think? Can we close the civil/military divide, and will it lead to a more responsible foreign policy if we do?

  3. I have to reiterate Dan's question above from a different angle, about the whole tough guy thing. Your narrative reminds me of some of the tough guy detective fiction that I shamefully love to read. Have you read a lot of modern day detective fiction, and if so, what authors are your favorites? Also, are you currently working on a novel, short stories, etc.? If not, why the fuck not?

    Yours truly with pink rainbows and glittering fairy dust,
    Jim

  10. OK, I'll play.

    What RPG(s) are you currently running and/or playing?

    I like this blog of yours a lot but it's one of those gaming blogs that doesn't seem to have a lot of gaming material or references on it lately.

    Just curious.
