Re: 0937: TornadoGuard

That's not really a problem with averaging star ratings as it is a problem with reviewers in general. Any other rating system and it'd still be skewed. 3 likes and 1 dislike, for example. No matter what rating system you have, there will always be people who review improperly (I can't count how many...

Re: 899: "Number Line"

Haha yes. I don't get much of the other stuff, but I love the "0.99 (actually 0.0000000372 less than 1)*" bit. People will spend so much time arguing about that. In fact, I'd be willing to bet that it's what the guy from this comic is arguing about. :mrgreen: *Quote not to scale with the b...

Re: 0888: Heaven

Well, I understand the thought, but I'm stuck playing Tetris, it's still hell. I do not like Tetris at all. Give me any other puzzle game ever, just not Tetris.

Re: 0887: "Future Timeline"

2069 is going to be a rather messy year... I like the completely un-elaborated-on "2066: Cyprus achieves its goal"... Also the rollercoaster that is the US debt. Obviously they're taken out of context, but still. And how social security runs out like, every other year. And don't forget how...

Re: 0846: "Dental Nerve"

This comic is a little late, since I stopped hearing about that song a long time ago. Which reminds me... that one about the cryptography conference? How long after the Missy Elliot song came out did he post the comic? Be nice, it's not Randall's fault that it takes the Guitar Hero devs so long to ...

Re: 0827: "Business Idea"

Haha, I like this one. Sadly I think too many people think the world actually works like that. And their games were better before they turned into a big-name sequel factory. Please don't state things like that as though your opinion were fact. He (or she) didn't. Please don't start whining about how...

Re: "Bad Ex" Discussion

How funny: the state of California is known to the rest of the USA to be a total douchebag. So I guess it's a case of that "takes one to know one" going on here.

(Yes, California is a douchebag for as long as they try to limit free speech in any form)

Re: "The Carriage" discussion (#788)

What's that 'Y' doing in the bottom left corner of the second picture? You press Y on the 360 controller or Triangle on the PS3 controller (both buttons are in the same spot) to get into cars and steal them in GTA. So it's probably meant to be a button prompt. Anyway I was thinking more of Red Dead...

Re: "MicroSD" Discussion

About a year or two ago I got a 2 GB MicroSD and crapped myself. Yeah, I just about did that too. So small, and yet that much space. And they have bigger capacities than that, I just didn't need that much room (I don't even come close to using all of the 2 GB I have available). And yet, I can still...

And this is why I love that my birthday is June 26th. Half a year away, no shafting for me. :twisted:

Also, regardless of not meeting the conditions of turning 27 today, I still feel the need to vomit now.

Oh good. I'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought of Armageddon for the first three panels. I was really confused when the alt text mentioned Deep Impact instead.
