Re: 1052: “Every Major’s Terrible”

It's amusing for this comic to come up because I'm going to college this fall and I still have no clue what major to pick.

I have no idea what to do with my life, so getting a Ph.D in Undecided sounds pretty cool about now.

Re: 0990: "Plastic Bags"

I live in Santa Monica where legislation has recently passed making it that you either have to bring your own bag or pay ten cents per paper bag they have to bag it in. (As you can probably guess, Santa Monica is chock full of extreme environmentalist-liberals.) This strip now has a different meanin...

Re: 0934: "Mac/PC"

It's okay. I've always shipped Mac/PC since the beginning of my computer-linked existence (not the commercial). Seriousness in, I have a Mac with Boot Camp. I've resigned myself to the fact I need both to fulfill my non-productive existence. Safari is my main on Mac and Chrome on Windows, Chrome is ...

Terribad physics pun

Physics teacher: "(last sentence of problem) Knowing the rotational momentum of the system and the angular velocity before the tiger lands on the disk, find the moment of inertia of the tiger; that is, the I of the tiger."

Re: "Stephen Hawking" discussion (#799)

Reading A Briefer History of Time might help this argument - Hawking discusses this issue in detail.

I personally think both sides are being stupid, even the side I would normally take the side of (oh god tautology).
