Re: 1402: "Harpoons"

"To motivate it to fire its harpoons hard enough, Rosetta's Philae lander has been programmed to believe it is trying to kill the comet." Horrible, horrible idea! What if it decides to throw a scuba tank at it instead, then try to shoot it with a shotgun?!? You're gonna need a bigger prob...

Re: 0953: "1 to 10"

I'd answer, "One. No better than even odds, given the number of possible bases available."

"Two root two." It's Australian for "group sex".

Re: Trebuchet

I'm envisioning a capacitor-fed kilowatt laser warhead hurled by a trebuchet.

Focus the beam on a point 10 cm from the emitter, and run the beam on a watch battery until the projectile is in range.

Then flash-fry the target with the capacitor.

*ahem* MUAA HA HA HAHAHA!!!

That is all.

I'll be in Boston about four months before this event. I'll do my best to get out there again for the meetup, but in the mean time I'll take lots of pictures of the park. :)

I've only used Cafe Press.

For simple, primary colors printed on white, they do well.

Stray from this formula, and your results become... unpredictable.

Also expensive.

I swear, Munroe, if I find out that I went back in time, changed my name, and made a webcomic, I'm going to turn your whole life into a paradox.

Well, unlike my 900-pixel monstrosities, your photo is already a tidy and compact size, unlikely to break anyone's view of the discussion. ;)

Why are Neo's pants coming off? edit: Oh, wait, that's a trenchcoat, isn't it? I like how it looked like I knew something about pop-culture because I said, "Neo," LOLLERS. Neo's trenchcoat looks like pants because my Paint "skillz" are somewhere between "kindergartener"...
