Re: 1521: “Sword in the Stone”

Is this a covert UK election comic?

Re: 1442: "Chemistry"

Nearly forgot the numbers!
1 - 6, 9
2 - 1, 2(+1), 4(+2), 5(+1), 7(+1)
3 - 3
0 - 8, 0

I get the feeling punctuation is more like rarer/man-made elements on the bottom of the ic table.

edit - Sorry, I couldn't resist the US-centric pun

Re: 1442: "Chemistry"

I was thinking the same thing about O, and then started imagining microscopic Christmas decorations... The bigger question is do the acute angles of A, M, V, W, Z, etc, act as bonding points? If so, what about right angles? Also with Q, the internalised bonding point would surely be useful for indus...

Re: 1399: "Chaos"

Oh god... why did I search for a clip of that laugh?
I should have known the internet would have created a remix.

This feels a little like Geoguesser...

Re: 1337: "Hack"

This would have been a better Valentine's Day comic than "1330 - Kola Borehole"...

Am I going to get flak from spelunkers for saying that? :|

And "database linkage accumulation slowdown"...? He *made* that up, right? Can't be. We know Randall well enough to know he'd never create a buzzphrase with such a miserable unpronounceable acronym. QED: it's something from the real world. "database linkage accumulation slowdown"...

Re: 1218: "Doors of Durin"

Did anyone else misread the title as Doors of Turin? I had images of scores of holy artifacts created when Jesus went door-to-door, and had his visage imprinted on to doors as they were slammed in his face. "Have you heard the good word of Me? *SLAM* Ow!" "Hey! I hope you're going to ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

What if she's building an air ship castle to save the structure from the "tide"? Have I missed someone else mention the obvious phrase, "Time and tide wait for no man"? Edit: Just did a forum search, yes, it appears I did! I saw some people made better versions of my recursion im...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I was surprised there wasn't an animated gif of the recursive castles, so with a little spare time at work I made this!
Damn, can't post images...
