Re: 0809: Los Alamos

I think your argument that Randall or anyone else is obligated to "have a different perspective" just because they're talking to a large audience is idiotic. Exactly how many people who you have to be talking to before you need to be sensitive? 1000? 10,000? 100,000? Any number is going t...

Re: 0809: Los Alamos

For everyone complaining how the invention of nuclear bomb was TOTALLY NOT COOL YOU GUYS, I'd make an empirical argument that nuclear weapons have been an extremely effective deterrent to war and have in fact saved millions of lives (even disregarding ending the war with Japan quickly).

Re: 0809: Los Alamos

Indeed. For example, I don't say that this forum is cool. I say that "if it weren't for the presence of some oversensitive tools who are hell-bend on being PC and telling other people what they SHOULD think about whether a job is cool or not, it would be a cool forum." So designing new wa...

Re: "Phobia" discussion (#752)

I like this one. I've been wanting to go backpacking for years and kept putting it off. This year I decided "I'm doing it, no question asked." So I worked an absurd amount of hours to pay for it, and two week ago I bought my plane ticket. I leave for Thailand in a month.

Bigfoot is real, but reports of his size are grossly over exaggerated.

Re: "Semicontrolled Demolition" Discussion

There really was an alien craft that crashed in Roswell, but it was just an alien weather balloon.

Also this is my favorite strip and thread in a while.

Re: "SkiFree" Discussion

I remember when I first figured this trick out after playing the game for years. I'd sit there skiing the trail over and over again just to laugh at the monster trying to catch me. I got my revenge, monster!
