That episode was pretty eye-opening.

Why did I laugh at that? It must be way too early.

Really though, I think we all know that the most important thing is to have different passwords for each site. I myself use an algorithm based on the website address to make my passwords so every one is different and I never have to remember any of them.

Re: 0934: "Mac/PC"

It's only recently that major video games started to be released for macs, and they still aren't all released on the platform. If you don't have a PC you have to run a Windows emulator and as a game that slows down performance. Screw Macs.

Re: 0933: "Tattoo"

What I found to be a good indicator of shallowness was the amount of makeup and hairstyle. I mean, if one spends hours a day on make up and hair(i knew several women who did this), how much time is left for reading, contemplation, and meaningful conversation, not to mention playtime. I can say that...

Re: Frosted Bacon

The funniest rape comic I've read was that penny arcade comic with the rape wolves. You are probably not going to see eye to eye with the critics in this thread, then.

As to tattoos, in most cases one quote I've seen holds true "the more tattoos/piercings someone has, the less interesting that person is." If you're interesting, you probably don't feel the need to advertise that on your skin. It may Be marked on your skin, but showing it off all the time...

I find Family Guy and Jackass quite funny. I don't find "bitches be crazy" repeated in a myriad of tedious forms funny. The punchline for a lot of the comics is literally 'women are weird lol'. It wasn't dark, it was the same regurgitated "dark" jokes that people have been telli...

Re: Frosted Bacon

Yes, I think his comics are for more of a niche audience. Personally, I am a big fan of Family Guy and Jackass and all of that kind of sophomoric humor so his stuff appeals to me. I think his first post gets it right when he describes himself as dark comedy. It is certainly dark. Not for most people.

Re: 0932: "CIA"

If we're talking about a denial-of-server attack, and I assume we are, it's not even that they tore down the poster, more like they got a whole bunch of people to stand in front of it so no one can see it. So basically we're talking about the digital equivalent of a sit-in. Two minutes ahead of me....
