Re: 1759: "British Map"

Where's the top half of Scotland gone!? Also, what about Orkney, Shetland, The (rest of) the Western Isles, The Scilly Isles, and the Channel Islands ? It should be titled 'Map of a bit of Britain, but not quite all of it.' Next time he does the US, I expect Florida, Manhattan, Alaska, and bits of M...

Re: 1737: "Datacenter Scale"

For some reason, this one reminded me of Monty Pythons' 'Four Yorkshire Men' Sketch. :D

Re: 1644: "Stargazing"

40% exactly the sort of inane comment that Megan is providing in the strip.


Is that Megan? Looks like Dr Brian Cox to me... even talks like him :)

Re: 1454: "Done"

I met my S.O. online. That was 16 years ago. We're still happily together, and have gone through the usual ups and downs a relationship has, along with the trials and tribulations of raising a child together. So not all online relationships are doomed to fail. I totally echo the strips sentiments, i...

I can turn this into a proper Windows screensaver easily.

People have been saying this over and over for almost 60 years now. Every other LOTR quote in 'current' mainstream use is due to the films, and onc...

Re: 1259: "Bee Orchid"

Title Text: In sixty million years aliens will know humans only by a fuzzy clip of a woman in an Axe commercial. Had to Google this. For those of us in the UK, 'Axe' is 'Lynx' - Smelly Products for Men (with adverts targeted at small boys). That said, I wear Lynx Africa. Only because I like the sme...

Re: 1141:"Two Years"

Like others, once I realised what the comic was about, I started to cry. Really emotional moment; I have a big heart that way.

Congrats Randall & co. Here's to another two years.
