Re: 1439: Rack Unit

I will now be severely disappointed if the next post-civilization-collapse story I read doesn't involve a group of survivors keeping bees in an abandoned datacenter. (Is credit required for that sort of reference?)

Re: "Sex Dice" discusion

Questions that occur to me after reading this comic: What class/level is the player where they're rolling 2d6 for damage? (Honest question. I don't play enough to know that kind of thing.) Is one's fondling attack based on one's strength, dexterity, or charisma? Could the body part die be used to le...

Re: “Snow Tracking” discussion

I started lolling at the moose and squirrel, and loved the Higgs panel and all, but the beauty of this comic for me is the different box prints between the transmogrifier and duplicator. Well done, Randall. Slightly disappointed there's been no full consensus on Ralph S Mouse, the hare dryer panel, ...

As much as I agree with atomfullerene's suggestion that we all band together and wipe out the non-sciences first, I do see some advantages to this interdisciplinary war.

Re: "Twitter" Discussion

Aw man. I'm going to have to explain Twitter and memes to my parents now. Thankfully they're old enough to remember, and to have told me about, the last decade or so of Burma-Shave signs.

Today's, I think, was the best comic in quite a while.

Re: 'Upcoming Hurricanes' discussion

Thank you, Randall, for getting Michigan right! It bothers me when people just draw it as a vague blob in the middle of some blue, or forget it and the Great Lakes completely, but you made an effort with all the coastline and that makes me very happy.
