Re: 1285: "Third Way"

How are both factions not attacking the "new line after every sentence" guy? That would be horrible to read! Also, I checked the Blag and What If pages, and they use single spaces. For me, this issue only bothers me when I'm the 4th person to work on a document and the previous writers hav...

Re: 0900: "Religions"

First Amalgamated Church FTW! (from Futurama)

That religion could certainly benefit from the discovery of the error bars. Their wedding ceremony, for instance, would be more precise. It currently begins, "We are gathered here before one or more gods, or fewer..."

Re: 0878: "Model Rail"

Really? The second rule? Why couldn't it have been the third rule? If the first rule of model train layouts is you do not talk about model train layouts, then the second rule of model train layouts is you DO NOT talk about model train layouts. Eh, maybe that would have been too much after the (sort ...

Re: 0871: "Charity"

What's a "zero internet argument"? I think he means that internet arguments are a bad place to discuss this issue (or maybe any issue) because they give people too much opportunity to be judgmental and overly-confrontational. (See comic #438.) However, I think this forum has done a good j...

Re: 0843: "Misconceptions"

Honestly, I would settle for getting the "Common Misconceptions" day as a required, first day for any new Hollywood film maker. Yes! Add politicians to the list, though. I don't want to hear any more potential senators asking why monkeys aren't still evolving into people. Also add teacher...

For all those requesting money, you should use the theory in comic #816 to prove that 30% of zero is a positive number.

I assumed Mozart was the third guy in that comic. Although I guess he should be the one to activate the Magic Flute, but Bach had to get mentioned somehow for the "I'll be Bach" reference.

(not that anyone is likely to visit this discussion again but...)
My fluids professor, the awesome Gareth McKinley, used this comic in lecture yesterday. He also made a reference to the warp factor from star trek as an example of a dimensionless group.

Re: " One Two" Discussion

The part that I really don't get is the vampire. What does a vampire have to do with Primitive Cultures? -m- He probably just used the Count from Sesame Street as a recognizable character. But I do think it would have been cooler to use a primitive culture's version of a vampire, in puppet form. (L...
