Here Are the Best Tweets From Folks Trying to Register for San Diego Comic Con
May the odds be ever in your favor.
Ah, San Diego Comic Con registration day. It’s like Christmas morning, only with 5-7 constantly refreshing laptops and a high level of nerd anxiety. Thousands of people logged on this morning in an attempt to secure a badge, and while some lucky few succeeded, there were still plenty of hopefuls who got shut out thanks to the ever-loading pinwheel of death.
While some folks are trying to buy tickets solo, many hopeful con-goers have started ticket buying teams in the hopes of increasing their odds. Here are some of our favorite tweets from today that capture the agony and the ecstasy of open registration:

To those who got badges, we celebrate with you. To those who did not, we grieve with you. To those who did not wake up on time and missed registration… we laugh at you 😂😭😆 #SDCC #OpenReg2019 #ComicCon pic.twitter.com/xNBEbuB1Ie

I'm just a girl, standing in the front of a computer, asking it to let me go to #SDCC50
