Re: 0900: "Religions"

And then, the conclusion is that there is 0.999999999... (or 0.99(bar)) god, and then there will be heated debates on both the general religious truth of the statement and whether that's the same as there being one god.

Re: 0899: "Number Line"

I thought the reference to numbers higher than 8 and a bit being "unreal math" was a reference to scientific notation, specifically that 9 + 1 = 1.0 x 10^1 (written out long form, of course). Of course that explanation doesn't cover why 9 is also a part of "unreal math". There's...

Edit: Also, loved the alt-text.

Re: Swine Flu

So, if I have Asperger's syndrome, can I lick myself and be immunized from swine flu?

Or do I have to be fully autistic?

By the way, the Hanners shout-out made this comic epic.

Re: "Friends" Discussion

Have you ever been attracted to someone and not wanted to have sex with them? Hmm... I remember several crushes I had when I was in both middle school and high school. I was definitely very attracted to the people in question. I also had absolutely no desire to have sex with them. In fact, the thou...
