Re: 1563: "Synonym Movies"

All this talk of movies has me wanting to watch one tonight. Don't know which, though. The Rearing of One's Winged Reptile ? All time fave, but seen it recently. Return to the Yet To Happen ? A classic, but I can practically quote it. Effective Life-Taking Tool ? Hmm. Expire Difficultly ? The Expose...

Re: What-If 0037: "Supersonic Stereo"

Question: do we have a general thread for discussing What Ifs, such as potential topics? I sent in one that I think (emphasis on think) might be neat to discuss, but just in case Randal doesn't like it, I'd like to share it and see it get turned into something rediculous (see shooting train with unr...

Re: 1165: "Amazon"

I can't find the Far Side cartoon of the cows in explorer outfits crossing the piranha-infested river, but it's just as well, because Gary Larson doesn't like having his cartoons on the internet . I thought it was Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head crossing a river, with a sign in the far bank reading "...

Re: 0873: "FPS Mod"

Just posting to say that this comic got turned into reality, somewhat. Referenced in a new release, in fact. If you are still in the middle of Borderlands 2 and don't want spoilers, well, it may be too late for that. If you read the comic, the mission reward is ruined. The mission is called Hyperion...

Re: Borderlands 2

Thought I would let people know, there is actually an "XKCD" reference in the game. The mission (I think it is only for zero) where you have to kill 100 bandits (level 30 mission) gives an award that is a sniper rifle of the "ex Kay Seedy" model. Pretty cool. Update, it also tal...

Re: 0992: "Mnemonics"

The one I learned for resistor color-codes was a bit less vulgar than the typical one: "Bad Beer Rots Our Young Guts, But Vodka Goes Well. Get Some Now" Replace Bad with Black and drop the tolerance component, and you've got the mnemonic I've been using for resistor codes ever since I lea...

Re: 0870: "Advertising"

The last panel seems to be a misunderstanding. Although spending more on a given item with a set "normal" price clearly means one saves less money, the slogan clearly applies to the total purchase. For example, if one saves 15% via discount, the person who spends 10$ saves 1$50, whereas t...

Re: 0835: "Tree"

It has only been about 20, maybe 21 hours since this comic went up, and it already has a following.

This is what happens when regular old people get their hands on CNC controlled laser cutter/engravers, and I would not have it any other way!
