Re: 1007: "Sustainable"

I think there's a similar graph for the word "crisis." I predict sentences of the future will be a linear combination of the two:
Sustainable. Crisis!!1 Sustain sustainable. Crisis!!!1 SUSTAINABILITY CRISIS!!!!1

Moderation!

Here's my new exercise plan: Stretch . I ride my bike to work often - except I forget/get too lazy to stretch. It's gotten to the point where I can barely touch my toes - I dance so being able to touch my toes is easy. Here's my new diet: eat healthy food, in moderation . I've noticed that I don't r...

I agree. I would say that it was worse back then, because nobody knew if someone would be stupid enough to actually blow up the world.

Re: Your Noob moment

I'm actually really glad that I didn't discover the forums until after I had been reading the comic for a while. So when I did discover it I didn't do anything particularily noob-ish. Nothing I wouldn't do now.

Re: What's wrong with highschool dances?

You don't need to pay that much. I paid less than 40 dollars for material, and some trivial amount for a zipper and a pattern, and made my dress.

Yay for stick people!

I've started drawing stick people a little more, in my journal and stuff.
