### Re: What-If 0124: "Lunar Swimming"

I don't understand this What If? At what point does the Earth get destroyed? Do the hydrogen and oxygen atoms suddenly get more mass when they bond to form water? 'Cuz if not then bringing them separated and then bonding them there wouldn't make a bit of difference. I'm a mathematician, not a chemis...

Why not just buy a gun that can only harm your true love? That would simplify things.

### Re: "Large Hadron Collider" Discussion

This comic was mildly funny when I misread it as hard-on. As it stands, it's really not all that amusing.

### Re: "Loud Party" discussion

The easiest way of determining the origin of thought bubbles is to look at the direction it emanates from. In this case we have a series of small bubbles starting at the feet of our two main characters, successively growing larger as they approach the shared though, ie. the vision of them sitting i...

### Re: "Loud Party" discussion

yeah, that makes more sense if they are at the party, dreaming about being in the tree. props to you. and now that I look at it, the thought bubbles get bigger as they go down (opposite of normal comic conventions), and the outline of the thought bubble curls towards the tree, not the other way as ...

### Re: "Network" Discussion

Well, assuming you could actually keep the computers running despite all the viruses that might actually be kinda cool to watch. I know there are at least a few viruses out there that will clean the parts of your PC they need, killing other viruses on the way. It might be really interesting to make...

### Re: "Classic" Discussion

This has to be one of the few xkcd comics which has a premise that I disagree with. There has been good music made every year. Sure, I can name quite a few years in the 80s without a corresponding good song, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. It just means I haven't found it yet. If you skip m...

### Re: "Future" Discussion

Okay, I finally found one that works kinda like what people were bringing up earlier in the thread. http://www.explosm.net/db/files/Comics/guest4/Max.jpg Nice. Maybe I should give C&H another shot. That comic reminds me of this PBF: http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/5783/pbf015adfreakingvortex...

### Re: "Priorities" Discussion

This reminds me of some teachers that would give you a 100% on a multiple choice test if you managed to get a 0%. The thinking was that you had to know enough to get that 0% as guessing would still give you 20% and you therefore deserve the 100%. My thinking is that if you say you will get an A/B/C/...

Man, I hate watching the clock thinking about how much time I'm wasting trying to fall asleep. I did that Wednesday. I had a couple beers, was really tired, and the rain was falling, but watched the clock for 1.5 hours instead. I don't keep anything in my room other than my clock, though. I don't ne...

I think I'm the only person in the world who doesn't like Ender's Game. I read it in middle school a long time ago and thought it was awesome. When I found it in a bookstore like two years ago (I didn't realize it was so famous at the time), I bought and reread it. I didn't dig it too much (sorry, i...

My biggest gripe was the lights on my way to work. They're fine during the day, but once night hits, there is little traffic and it doesn't make sense waiting 1-2 minutes for a light to change while there is zero cross traffic. They finally got all the lights to work alright at night, but they'll fl...

On my math placement exam before entering college (which didn't matter as I had a 5 on the Calc BC exam), I forgot how to find the area of a triangle. I was trying to use calculus or trig or something for like 15 minutes before remembering area=1/2*base*height.
