Re: 0842: "Mark"

I have to say that until I had found out about Pen15, I thought that this comic was ingenious. Being part of a secret society yet knowing nothing about it but choosing to support it just because it is the only gaurenteed order that is underlying the ever shifting landscape of the political party sys...

Re: "Leaving" Discussion (#791)

I haven't posted in quit a while but this comic just struck me. When my Great-Grandfather died, I tried to give all the attention I could to my Great Grandmother so that when she died I didn't feel I shortchanged her in terms of love and affection. This comic reinforces the feeling that if one is in...

It may be because I've just finished watching Tenga Toppa Gurren Lagann but this comic reminds me very much of the titular mecha. It's run by a main character in a very small robot within a larger robot within a larger robot and powered with outrageous amounts of will and persistance. Although its t...

I really like this comic. It kind of speaks on a very deep level of the nature of the soul after the body is "disassembled" while comparing it to something very unimportant as legos. Also the push for people to become organ donors is also somewhat noble too. This is why I like xkcd. Intell...

Man, its been a while since I didn't get a joke from Randall's comics. I'm glad he's going to his older roots with math humor and without a sex reference. I wish for more high-brow jokes like this as it actually gives me a chance to learn something that I didn't know.

I agree wholeheartedly. Sometimes the most simplest things are the most elegant and this proves that statement.
