Re: 0884: "Rogers St."

Dagnamit! Why didn't I consider my prospective porn career when naming my goldfish things like "Bubbles the Impaler"?

Re: 0862: "Let Go"

I recently took an extreme approach and banned myself completely from Facebook for a month. It got easier after the first week or two. It actually made me mildly more productive (though I've found myself browsing other sites I wouldn't normally bother with.) It's now been two days since the end of t...

Re: "Packages" Duscussion

Ok, forget life-imitates-xkcd.

After reading this comic, I'm building a device to allow me to cross the fiction-reality barrier and climb into the world of xkcd. Because it's simply made of Awesome.

Re: "Together" discussion

What intrigues me is that, despite all the wonderful activities in the first four panels, he doesn’t leave until they’re sitting on the porch together in their old age. Is this the first time he’s been truly happy?

Re: "The End is Not for a While"

This kind of reminds me of the situation here in London, where it's been made illegal to protest within a mile of the Houses of Parliament, so people have been having tea parties on the lawn outside, waving blank signs. Basically a protest against being banned from protesting. I don't think they've ...

I have to agree. But would that be Ironic Paracusia?

Re: xkcd Goes to the Airport Discussion

A jack-knife-style set it just about as bad as a knife. It's just that that's not their normal purpose, stabbing people. So I guess their are fine because of that. The hijackers on the Sept 11th flights purportedly used box-cutters, presumably for that same reason. Trying to carry a scimitar on boa...

One of my favorite (adult) party games involves thinking up advertising slogans and then adding "between my legs" at the end. It's amazing how often it works!

Re: "Forks and Spoons" Discussion

and if we invent killer spork hybrids, they'll just kill one planet, not everyone. But what if we invent killer space-travelling spork hybrids, then we'd still be screwed. I mean, how much oxygen does a piece of shaped metal need to survive? All it'd need is a method of propulsion... So, would that...

Re: "The Man Who Fell Sideways" Discussion

I love this, but wouldn't they both stop falling when they hit a bit of sloped ground or something?? I know it can be irratic, but it would have to get a particular rhythem going to cause them to bounce the way they are. Not that it really matters; still a great comic! Also, I wonder what effect all...

Re: "Startled" Discussion

I can understand why people are dissapointed with this, but personally, I like it. I like that it's different, and that it messes with our expectations. And, BHG or not, it seems that the stress of meeting his match seems to be taking its toll on BHM. (Also, I regisered to post this, since the comic...
