2000 isn't really important. We're still 48 comics away from a relevant comic number.

Don't you mean 30 comics away?

While risking showing my age, I think the cartoon refers to Duke Nukem 3D. At the start of the first level of the first episode Duke says "It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum. I'm all out of gum." - not 18 words. You mean showing how young you are? Right? If he was truly old, he woul...

Interesting idea. Does a 20mW laser targeting any security/facial recognition cameras count as a crime? It would at least block you out, and probably damage the sensor.
