Re: "Overstimulated" Discussion

I feel obliged to show up, and then it's so loud and I can't understand what everyone's saying because the music and peoples voices and doors opening and closing and the air conditioning are all running together. I can relate. For some reason I'm always interpreting what people around me are saying...

Re: "Overstimulated" Discussion

I am definitely buying a print of this. Can we get it in a bigger size? Because I'm pretty sure a lot of the fanbase feels exactly like this all the goddamn time.

Re: "Android Girlfriend" Discussion

I submit my approval of Randall's use of the word (onomatopoea?) 'nom'. That is all. Seriously. Stop reading.

My god. It's the 600th topic. Let's bask in the glory of arbitrary numbers that look nice in our counting system.

This comic struck a chord with me even though I'm perma-single. I can totally see myself doing this. I've done it with gadgets.

Re: "Matrix Revisited" Discussion

I rented the original from a little podunk video store near my house when I was 11. I didn't know anything about it, but the shopkeeper seemed to like it.

Re: "Cat Proximity" Discussion

Shouldn't the "far" and "near" portions of the graph be reversed (along with the lines on the graph)? The current layout implies that you can only get so far away from a cat, but that you can infinitely increase your proximity to cat. Cat density is not that high. Log scales (al...

Right, so, a squared plus b squared plus c squared... = distance squared. This is true for any number of dimensions. Take it to four dimensions. This means that an object can have the same co-ordinates in the first 3 dimensions (a , b, and c), and not overlap with another point with those first thre...
