Re: "Dilution" Discussion

I'm more concerned with the fact that she said "we'll get pregnant".

Re: "Dyslexics" Discussion

I think this was done in the six minutes it took to upload the comic. I mean, I don't even get the joke. What are they supposed to be untying that makes this joke funny? Their shoes? Their bras? Oh yeah, and way to offend another minority group, Randall. How is this offensive? I'm dyslexic and I fi...

Re: "Infrastructures" discussion

Okay, so social networking sites that care nothing about your privacy continuing to care nothing about your privacy is bad, yes. But making a big deal out of a .doc file, when your precious OpenOffice can open the damn thing, and any halfway decent e-mail client will let you automatically preview t...

Re: "Seismic Waves" Discussion

I'd subscribe to the notification service at https://sslearthquake.usgs.gov/ens/ but apparently xkcd DDOS'ed it into tomorrow.

And as for the afternoon quake in California today: I really should learn to not take a nap when these things hit. I'm beginning to feel left out.

Re: "Computer Problems" Discussion

Whether or not this has a deeper meaning, I think it's hilarious. (I didn't think of it having deeper meaning at all.) (It's getting to be late...) I loved it. I want this in print. Seconded. The comic can be understood by every english-reading person who has seen a computer. Plus, it appeals to th...

Re: "Brain Worms" Discussion

That gag only works for folks who have cars. You can't have a lot of spatial confusion while on a bike. Either you're riding one the seat or crashing. No way to confuse being a passenger.

Re: "Time Machine" Discussion

snip The story required a linear, immutable timeline. No parallel timelines or things get messy fast. "Now I noticed, he did kill him. But why bat of all weapons?" Because the gun jammed. This was his second attempt. ;-) T-Rex: Jan 30, 1835: dude pulls a gun on then-president Jackson and ...

Re: "I Am" Discussion

I superficially understood the comic. It got a smirk out of me.

Then I read this comment:

Briareos wrote:And here I thought it was against his programming to impersonate a deity.


Then I was able to laugh.

Re: "Spirit" Discussion

"Hah. I wasn't expecting you," he said. Death stopped leaning against the wall. HOW FORTUNATE YOU WERE. "But there's still such a lot to be done . . ." YES. THERE ALWAYS IS. Brutha followed the gaunt figure through the wall where, instead of the privy that occupied the far side ...

Re: "MicroSD" Discussion

Terry Pratchett said that information generates its own gravity, and compared libraries to black holes in the sense that a reader who wanders in might be unable to ever leave (in which case tvtropes could hold an accretion disk the size of the milky way). MicroSD? More like MicroSingularityDevice, ...
