Re: "Lincoln-Douglas" Discussion

That said, I occasionally agree with the flipside too in that xkcd's quality is lessening, so I'll call your bluff and say I'm interested in your opinion and the detailed reasoning supporting it. My problem with this comic is that it seems to be pretty much a "your mom" joke that crossed ...

Re: "Lincoln-Douglas" Discussion

I completely agree that good criticism is hard to do well. But "xkcd USED to be funny" does not equate good criticism. Let it be clear that I didn't claim I made a good criticism of the comic here. I'm not in the mood for writing stuff the fanboys aren't willing to read, to be honest, but...

Re: "Scribblenauts" Discussion

But for a DS game to steal $50-$70 out of my wallet, it has to be pretty damn awesome. [...] I would buy a lot more games if most games actually had a price that actually reflected the value of the game, instead of most games costing between $50-$70 dollars even when they're only worth $20, like re...

Re: "Blockbuster Mining" Discussion

So what continent is Canada and Mexico on, then? Have they like helilifted them to Europe or something? Stop being obtuse. Everybody knows that "American" is what we call a citizen of the US. Just be acute instead ;) [/badpun] But then, how do you refer to a group of people from the Ameri...

Re: "Collections" Discussion

Finally, a Terry Pratchett reference. Now I can die in peace ;-) [random] Not related at all to anything, but it's too early in the morning and my caffeine IV hasn't metabolized yet, but I read that as "now I can die in space ", to which I thought that was a very strange comment indeed. [...

Re: "Haiku Proof" discussion

Pretty sleep-deprived myself, I read "number of pirates" at first. That also makes sense. There are an infinite number of pirates too - almost as many as there are prime numbers. It's just a hallucination? Aw, I'd hoped that the sheer awesomeness of haiku mathematics conferred the power o...

Re: "Wings" Discussion

Error: expected ')' on line 6. Oops. That's what I get for not compiling my code before I post it! Nothing instills trust like code with comments pleading for the program to work. The comments are just vocalizing what every developer thinks in his/her head the first time code runs anyway. ;) You ca...

Re: "Wings" Discussion

I just want to know how to parse the alt-text... Where do I put the parentheses?? I prefer: // Please do { not ( try { ( any of this ) and ( ( die ) or ( get arrested ) ) } ) } Okay, so it's not perfect, but nobody else turned it into the obvious programming reference. :edit: Adding missing ) on li...

I'm confused... can you elaborate? What do you mean by "real people"?

Re: "Android Girlfriend" Discussion

Just imagine it. You're bored on a Friday night so you go to a bar with your friends, lookin to get in a fight or get laid. You see a fine lady with a short leather skirt and kinky dirty blonde hair making eyes at you, a real femme fatale. ... (read original post) ... Your deflated head plops onto ...

Re: "The Race: Part 5" Discussion

May I? May I? Let me prepare my powers, wait, let me remember the quote properly... oh, yes, here it is! Does that button say "POST REPLY" or "KISS THE AUTHOR'S ASS"? Thank you! You're forgetting the fundamental flaw in all this debate over whether the series sucked: if you REAL...
