Re: "Sagan-Man" Discussion

Absolutely love this comic. Some days, I feel like Sagan-man, except no one seems susceptible to my powers... OK, I had no idea his birthday was a week ago (November 9th). Last week, out of the blue, I decided to start watching Cosmos on Hulu, since I had never seen it before (it was, sadly, before ...

Re: "Asteroid" Discussion

Wow. I just... uh... wow. I must echo the sentiments of those on the first page who said that this comic simultaneously made their day, and ruined it. To anyone who does not get this joke: for shame! Whatever you are doing, put it down and read The Little Prince. I suppose my avatar is particularly ...

Re: "Two Mirrors"

I laughed out loud when I saw this comic; the concept of ducking and having them fly into each other is hilarious. I absolutely lost it when I saw the alt-text, though.

Brilliant.

Re: "Fiction Rule of Thumb" Discussion

I don't know why people seem to hate Robert Jordan so much. I read a couple of his books a few years ago and can't remember any particular difficulty with the new words. Sure, maybe they weren't absolutely necessary, but the overall storytelling was good enough to outweigh that. Of course, I only g...

Re: "Fiction Rule of Thumb" Discussion

That none of you jerks have brought up Cat's Cradle is deplorable. I registered just to say this, I don't even like this comic that much, and am really lazy. Registering is a nightmare. I'm pretty sure Cat's Cradle falls within the five word limit. It's been years since I read the book, but besides...

As an avid fan of Vonnegut, I must say he's not really one for making up words, except for Cat's Cradle. Grandfal...

Re: "Fiction Rule of Thumb" Discussion

Well I guess anything by China Mieville is right out, then, eh? Mmm... dreamshit. Then again, he doesn't do it nearly as often as one would expect a fantasy/sci-fi author to do. I guess it doesn't count if they're coining new words for things that don't already have a word, like "ent" or &...

Re: "Tones" Discussion

HELL YES. And I thought I was the only one. I cringe every time someone's phone erupts with a violent fanfare of the latest pop hit craze. I DO NOT WANT TO HEAR YOUR QUESTIONABLE TASTE IN MUSIC. A phone should RING. End of story! Using your favorite song as a ring tone cheapens its value and turns i...

Re: Whedon's Doctor Horrible

I'm glad Penny Arcade linked to this! I just heard about it yesterday, and I've fallen in love with it. The ending is exceptionally sad... but that last shot of Doctor Horrible, sitting in front of his computer, without his goggles... I still can't make up my mind what it means. Is that what the Do...

As a mathematician, I heartily approve of this comic.

Would that make my second degree in computer science just an excuse to have real sex?

Re: "Every Damn Morning" Discussion

I think people keep saying "get out of my head!" because they are frustrated that none of the people around them seem to understand them, and yet there are so many of us who all experience the same thing. I know I feel that way a lot. We're not special, we're just initially uniformly distr...

Re: "Every Damn Morning" Discussion

Long time unregistered lurker, first time poster. I just HAD to register after reading this comic. This used to happen to me! It was horrible. It felt like I never had any dreams; the only ones I could remember consisted entirely of me sitting through lectures I had already heard before, or doing hi...
