Re: 0931: "Lanes"

Fuck cancer indeed. I hope things go well for you... I can only ever know secondhand how hard it is to face that wait. Just yesterday, my family found out on the same day that not only did my uncle have a metastatic tumor in his left lung (I think that's how it's supposed to be said? It's a secondar...

Re: "Helping" Discussion

I think it's crazy to say that the comic is poorly executed. It's achieved coherent ambiguity, which is one of the hallmarks of great art. (I say that without necessarily meaning to imply that this /is/ "great art," although it may be the closest that xkcd has tried to come.) The great ar...

Re: "Helping" Discussion

Problem is, it's not the comic that provides that unity. It's the shared experience.

Re: "Helping" Discussion

It's a matter of phrasing. Life is not bad. It's never bad. You can be going through a bad period IN your life, sure. It can even be a VERY bad time that goes on for a long while. But life itself is good. If it wasn't, there'd be no reason to live it, and suicide would be a perfectly rational act. A...

Re: "Helping" Discussion

The comic is crystal clear to anyone who has been through this, though entirely different for all of them. But... it's not. It really isn't. I've been there. I've tried to kill myself; I've locked myself away from family, friends, and life as a whole for months and months at a time. I've dealt dire...

Re: "Wasteland" discussion

I found this one to be both hilarious and horrendously depressing at the same time.

Although without the alt-text, it's just hilarious.

Re: POST HERE FIRST - INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Well, my name is Liokae, I registered a long time ago, pretty sure I never stopped by here, though. Didn't really post elsewhere either, though. Anywho, I moderate a different forum, I play a lot of video games and pencil/paper RPGs, mostly World of Darkness... and I like to write. Doing NaNoWriMo a...

It's worth noting that there's a big-ass spider outside my window.

I need to get me some blinds.

Isn't "Maggie" a common nickname for Megan? For Margaret too, obviously, but I've seen both.

Fairly easy question...

I'm pretty sure this is relatively simple, but I can't for the life of me remember how to do it. Given ten distinct elements, how many unique combinations are there if a unique combination is defined as one in which there is no repeated element, with order of the elements not mattering? (IE, "a...

Weird. At every McDonald's I've ever been to, the single is 79 cents. Still not as good a deal, but less expensive in the absolute.
