Re: 1050: "Forgot Algebra"

Well, in fairness it's not just algebra. Perhaps they should switch to teaching python. At least that way the math has an obvious and immediate application. Was there a single book you read in school that you wouldn't have be more likely to appreciate ten years later, once you'd gathered enough expe...

Re: 0980: "Money"

Is there a (officially sanctioned) downloadable version of this comic? Or an alternate viewer? I want to read it but the viewer seems to be breaking every browser I throw at it (Safari, FF, and Chrome).

(Narnia must be perched on the event horizon of a super massive black hole, given the incredible disparity.) I don't think there are any concrete figures but assuming 1 minute on Earth is equal to about 1 da...

Re: 0873: "FPS Mod"

This comic reminds me of how back in college my friends and I would make up heart touching back stories for the guards in 007 right before sniping them. I think we did this because all college students are sociopaths. Now I write novels I find this an excellent way to kill off characters while makin...
