Re: "Cover-Up" Discussion

Everyone but the guy who posted the topic seems to have missed the obvious question. What are they doing in this guy's house, and why is he not surprised/indignant to come home to them? On a more conforming note: My room is on the second floor of an A-Frame house, so I have a peaked ceiling. From so...

Re: "TED Talk" Discussion

Reading halfway down the first page (instead of doing my required reading for my French class tomorrow, note), I have realized that enough people have already said what I logged in to post: I would TOTALLY watch a Ted Talk with either Mr. Munroe or the particular stickman portraying him in today's c...

Re: "I am Not a Ninja" Discussion

Scariest sentence opener in the English language: "We need to talk..." (or some derivative thereof.) Sometimes I hear it from across the house when my father needs to ask me if I've paid him back for concert tickets, but the tactless use of, "I need to talk to you..." sends my he...

Re: "Flash games" Discussion

I could make a list. Shift at http://www.koreus.com/jeu/shift.html was pretty awesome, and then I discovered Shift 2 which was nigh upon unbeatable. Really cool concept, though. Took a good many ideas from Portal. Oh, and Destruct-O-Match on Neopets was like crack. And then they updated it to Destru...

Re: The Staple Madness

Staple Guns win if they are pneumatic. The ones that you have to force are a little less awesome, and since he doesn't have an air compressor or a hose running to his, I suspect that he'll either wear out very soon or have a very sore hand tomorrow. :? I had something else I was going to say, but it...

Re: "House of Pancakes" Discussion

Question: To those of you who have read both, is Only Revolutions (another book by the same author) worth it? I've gotten only about halfway through OR. I have a difficult time with poetry, and I started out trying to read all of the information in the margins. I've deemed it not doable on the firs...

Re: "House of Pancakes" Discussion

I think that my jaw might have unhinged snake-style when I saw this. I check the site whenever I think about it, but since school started back, I've been a couple of days late on most of the comics. I also haven't spent much time in the forums because my life has been kind of consumed by school once...

Been there, done that, now own a GPS.

Thank you Google Maps, but that is NOT the easiest way to get to the Orpheum or Birmingham.

This comic remind me of this comic: http://www.awkwardzombie.com/comic1-110507.php It's getting to the point of ridiculous. Everything I see on the internet reminds me of something else I've seen on the internet, and most things I see in real life remind me of an xkcd. As for bras, though... Nevermi...

Re: Three princesses

I might be crazy, but this seems a variant of the Labyrinth puzzle. (David Bowie in tights, that's all one needs in life). Also, see: http://www.xkcd.com/246/ I believe that a different variant of it was stated before by someone whose name I've forgotten. However, I think that, as a variant of this ...

You know, if I were in many of your bewildered shoes, I think that I would have skipped posting on this forum and waited for Friday's to come out rather than admitting to having not understood...

Re: "Things fall apart" Discussion

Has nobody considered the possibility that he actually loves her? That's irrelevant. Love doesn't conquer all for everybody. There are cases where people feel that the emotions are not worth the situation, even if the obstacles could be considered minor by those who highly value the emotion. He may...

Re: "Paths" discussion

My main problem is that I could pretty easily walk on a straight-line path, but then I would feel like a jerk for walking on the grass instead of all the nice concrete paths the school went to all the effort to make, even though they're not efficient. See... the thing there is, you're probably payi...

Re: In Popular Culture Discussion

So, vandalism on the internet is an interesting idea, but I'm kind of skeptical of its existence. I understand that censorship can be unbelievably useful - I'm a deviantArt user, and the stuff that makes it through there under the guise of "art" is just absurd - and wikipedia doesn't need ...
