Re: "Cheap GPS" Discussion

In lieu of mapping software, I once wrote a Perl program which, given a USB GPS receiver and a destination, printed 'LEFT' 'RIGHT' OR 'STRAIGHT' based on my heading. Which, if written in python , would consist of approximately 3 lines. 4 if you want to keep things neat. Also, am I the only one who ...

This is comic 405. Apparently, the whole 'comic 404' controversy was avoided by skipping it. Interesting.

Re: "Garfield" discussion

I may be totally running this thread off topic, but on a similar note as the Garfields with no Garfield dialog, this is a website that randomly generates a cartoon of The Family Circus and pairs it with a random Nietzsche quote as its caption. It's quite amusing.

Re: Rockin' in the Bay Area!

I've never understood why California thinks it has the only "Bay Area" (or at least, in my experience, every time somebody says 'the Bay Area' on the internet, they mean CA and assume everyone else knows it).. I live near Tampa Bay, Florida. Or... the Bay Area, as we call it around here (...

Re: Super Smash Bros.

After about 5 hours of play, Im rather partial to Pitt. Ike just feels like a slower version of Roy, and I was never enough of a Ness fan to go for Lucas. Why did they have to set the release date for a week before finals? If im kicked out of school, then I'll at least beat adventure mode on hard.

Re: Fake Spoilers

Spoiler:
In Pulp Fiction, the briefcase contains the internet from 1994, before it was overtaken by evil.



Spoiler:
Both Link and Young Link are included in Super Smash Bros not because they are the same person 7 years apart, but because young link is in fact Link and Samus's illegitimate child.

Wow, this discussion veered about 180 from where I thought it would go.

The way I see it, either you rejected the game from the sta...

I don't know why, but I found this to be the funniest xkcd in a long while (not to say it hasnt been funny, just this comic was particularly amusing). I vow that the next time I am drunk and at a party talking to a girl with which I am bored, I will use this line.

Re: Blade Runner

Although I never saw blade runner and therefore dont get the humor of the comic, this conversation of uncommonly ended movies interests me. The kingdom was a recent movie that was very much open ended, and IMO, brilliantly done.
