Re: 0896: "Marie Curie"

Jocelyn Bell (the discoverer of Pulsars) is another great candidate for the list, I've had the privelage of going to a lecture she presented and there is no doubt in my mind that she deserved a Nobel Prize for her work.

Re: "Lego" Discussion

In every possible respect, I wholeheartedly support this comic.

Title Text: And now someone drunk and hot stumbles in, one thing follows another, and the next roommate to return home sleeps in the hall lounge orbital.

That's only because the living room couch occupant decayed from it's excited state. Turns out it wasn't metastable.

But where have I heard it before? I thought it was from Concerned, (ConCERNed? Sorry. I'm a bad man) but apparently that joke was "strider", not "supercollider". From Futurama (That's Lobstertainment): Robot: So I says, "Super collider? I just met her!" And then they b...

Re: comic #404

Quoth the server?

It would be neat if the comic number were skipped, akin to the idea of skipping the numbering of the 13th floor. Of course, the observant among us reading 405 would know which comic we were really reading.
