Re: 1994: "Repairs"

Comic is up early, yet the comic appears to be cut off - it's like I'm only seeing the upper-left of it. Is this the case for everyone else? Or is that part of the joke, and it just whooshed over my head? I'm seeing that too, and the same thing happened with SafetySat, so I think it's just an easy ...

If words don't hurt you -- if the opinions of others mean nothing to you -- if their words mean nothing but "I don't like you" and you wouldn't want them to like you anyway--

Then words have probably hurt you a great deal already.

We should have realised that the trébuchet destruction woll-did only take place in the middle section.

Re: 1190: "Things that are on my side for 600, Alex!"

Newpix are an absolute measure of time, counted simply as the time when a newpic appears. They do not vary in length as they do not have length. Timeframes, I believe, are defined by the GONG, so it would be correct to say that the rate of Timeframes has increased relative to newpix. To say that a n...

The whole religion thing is a massive case of misplaced attention.

All of its importance comes from the anticipation, the predictions, and above a...
