Some would argue that a day of Comic-con doesn't really begin until the panels are over and the guests and attendees flood downtown San Diego. You never know where the night is going to take you or what you're gonna learn, these are the things I remembered when I woke up this morning.

1. Joss Whedon loves to dance, and no Comic-con is complete until you or someone you love has been caught up in the maelstrom of his sweet, sweet moves. As fluid as his dialogue and as inexplicable as his being hired to direct The Avengers, Whedon's soulful and sweaty gyrations are hypnotic, and he wants to share them with you, so always be prepared. He was as gracious with his rhythm as he is with his fans, posing for pictures and pairing lonely dancers with available partners like Felicia Day and Nathan Fillion. Just don't leave him hanging - the man is all too familiar with things being canceled just as they're getting good, so if you enter the fray you best be prepared to stick it out for the long haul. They shoot nerds, don't they?

2. Avatar was merely a fancy tech demo for Jackass 3-D. And I have the nausea to prove it.

3. Former reality TV star Adrian Curry is officially the greatest Slave Leia ever. I may not have the ultimate authority to make that claim, but I hold this truth to be self-evident. If you want to be a stickler about it, maybe the guy from The Guinness Book of World Records (who was here to give Stallone a plaque confirming Rocky to be the most successful sports franchise ever) is still here. I think I saw him dancing with Joss Whedon last night, having what was officially the greatest night of his life.
