If you've been following me that long, you should know this by now.


(I had another, but then I looked at the title text and saw that it was basically literally the same joke.)

My first time doing xkcdsw:

Spoiler:
propan-2-ol.png
Not even the good kind of alcohol


Spoiler:
Time-wasting.png
This one is entirely autobiographical. My recycle bin was actually open for the whole time I was making it.


Sources: 119 and 354 respectively.

Also I found this file very useful for the text. (I'm a perfectionist - I want it to match the original comic.)

In case the files go missing, here they are on imageshack: propan-2-ol and time-wasting

This is a remake of an XKCDSW a did a while ago, but which got lost from both the forums and my computers.

Ya'll are very encouraging. Also, I realized that the bad photoshop job isn't too noticeable when you aren't looking at it pixel by pixel.
Also, here's another one. This kind of idea has been tried many times before (mainly with powers of -1 and powers of i), so this is just a slight variation...
