You can't have a pit fight without a rabid panda somehow involved.

But pandas are an endangered species! Or just in "asian stereotypical manga panda"?

I dunno; I've always been suspicious of those pandas. I bet they're just making us thing they're endangered so that they can build up a mass force and take us all by surprise.

Actually, replace "endangered" with "extinct" and you have the raptor situation. It's a conspiracy!

I'm a 17 year old male from Chicago, turning 18 in a month. I recently finished high school and will become a CS major at the University of Illinois, although not necessarily this fall. Somebody linked me to these comics today and I found them clever, so being an internet vagabond and having nothing better to do I decided to register here.

Hi, I’m knight427, but you can call me knightwithnumbers for short. I’m a 29 year old male who teaches and consults, but I hope to soon consult and teach. One of my students introduced me to xkcd for which I am very grateful, but my wife is not.

If I call you knightwithmynumbers, then the number of letters in each word (besides knight) comes to 427. That should make it fairly simple to remember.

That sounds reasonable so long as you remember that they are MY numbers. To avoid confusion, I suggest writing a short, 427-word story beginning with the word “knightâ€

Perhaps at some point I shall feel more comfortable entertaining the world with my major.
Leave it to be said that I am considered a sub-human life-form as a result of it. (Hysterical laughter is uncommon, but possible. Shocked silence and incomprehension are closer to the norm. Followed with interesting attempts to run me out of the college:))
Nope, nowhere near Kentucky. Massachusetts during the semester, out of the country the rest of the time, sorry duckie ;) Perhaps you DO know me though. I wouldn't put it as completely impossible. One never knows...

Dear dissonance,

I would like to take a moment to introduce you to the internet. You see, it is a series of tubes (not a truck) in which imaginary people lie about everything. This makes it perfectly safe to expose your deepest darkest secrets. I can’t imagine how your choice of major could be so humiliating that you would be unwilling to share.

Also, I am greatly in need of your generous assistance in transferring $10,000,000 from a foreign bank in Nigeria. Please pm me for details.

Sincerely,
knight427

SPAMBOT!!! He is a witch!!!! Burn him! Ban him! Delete all of his posts!!!


Seems to be a new generation of spambots coming out lately...maybe the rise in spam SV has spoken of might just be to distract the mods from recognising the new bots.

Everyone, knight427 (yay! remembered the numbers!) is no bot. Esp. since he is posting in here.
