Re: 1340: "Unique Date"

Just to throw in my two cents about the whole "when does the week start" question: I say Sunday, but admittedly that's just because I'm used to it being Sunday. Also, every calender I've seen goes Sunday to Saturday. I don't know if I like the idea of a Monday to Sunday calender. But as fo...

Re: 1336: "Transformers"

This doesn't feel like an XKCD comic; The art style looks different (maybe it's just the lack of stick figures, but there have been comics with no stick figures before which still felt like XKCD).

It's still funny.

Re: Police misbehavior thread

I read that story here and it said that "The cinema has a policy of not allowing weapons in the auditorium". I find it funny that this is a policy. As an Australian, the idea that anyone (who doesn't intend to commit a crime) would think to take a weapon into a cinema seems ridiculous.

Words are not typically defined very precisely. "Immortal" can and has been used both ways. If it's important, ask for clarification. Don't worry, I get that. Like I said, even the one definition I gave in the first post could go either way. I'm mainly curious as to what people's thoughts...

What does "immortal" mean?

Does immortal mean you cannot die at all? Or, does it mean it's possible to live forever, but it's not guaranteed? (i.e. you can't die of old age, but you can be killed). I think the former is correct, but quite a few people seem to disagree. I've noticed fantasy novels/films tend to use the latter,...

This is similar to the drunk driving example I brought up, but I'm seeing how that...
