Re: 1674: "Adult"

my beloved bedtime story book, The Tall Book of Make Believe [/quote] I remember that book! Loved it. I'm glad there are others who are keeping those underappreciated authors' memory alive. And I agree that being surprised at actually being an adult is, to some degree, a timeless phenomenon. Perhap...

Re: 1674: "Adult"

I am not getting the joke either. Especially the part where the person who is excited about the groceries, the sofa and the mortgage is not the same person who's excited about writing a will... Oh. I think I just got it! In the last panel, his will is being read aloud. After he died. Wow, I can be s...

Re: 1638: "Backslashes"

But hey! At least Randall M. didn't call "/" a backslash, as some are wont to do. My favorite is when people call "/" a "forward slash". I'd guess that there's a geeky term for such uses of useless modifiers to cancel a prefix, but I don't know what it might be. (I've ...

The orchid deserves to go extinct, since it obviously killed the bees by causing them to waste their mating season screwing flowers.

Am I the only one bothered by the fact that the comic refers to the actor Bill Murray having sex with the character Rita? Shouldn't it be Phil Connors?
