Re: 1037(?): Umwelt

SUNY Albany student, but not currently on campus right now. Anyone able to tell if they've got anything special for over there? (We did kind of make national news for some embarrassingly destructive St. Patrick's Day partying incidents last year, and there's some neat nanotech research going on arou...

Them's fighting words.
Unfortunately, as a public radio listener, I have nothing to defend myself with but a framed picture of Garrison Keillor and some weeks old New Yorker magazines.

Re: 0979: "Wisdom of the Ancients"

Back in 2005, I posted a tech issue I had with an already ancient computer game on another message board. The thread got two replies, one of which was mine, and died little over a week later. Cut to February of this year. I get curious about this issue again and go searching for help with it. I find...

Re: 0923: "Strunk and White"

And a good refutation of Pullum's article refuting Stunk and White is here: http://mleddy.blogspot.com/2009/04/pullum-on-strunk-and-white.html And I'm sure if you were to look hard enough, you could find an article refuting that refutation of the refutation. And here's a New York Times article about...

Re: 0923: "Strunk and White"

I'm in the middle of re-reading this very book for fun. This comic has now made it considerably harder to finish such a task. Still, thank you for tossing one out to the English majors, Mr. Munroe.

Re: "Idiocracy" Discussion

The contrast is intended. Nerds and jocks are incompatible. Whenever the two share the same space, there will, and there should be conflict. Incorrect! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5KzqwDozy0&feature=related Once again, television wins an internet debate. But you know...don't let me stop you...

Re: "Papyrus" Discussion

Hm...I've only relatively recently gotten into typography (last couple years or so), but perhaps I can bridge the gap a bit. Although overuse of anything (for example: the font in question, the song Hey there Delilah and the phrase "Shoop Da Whoop") can make it less than appealing, I was n...

Re: "Brakes" Discussion

Oh, no I understood, I was just kind of joking around...(Perhaps meta-humor is more obscure then I thought it might be)...Anyway, I would have to submit "because it's fun" as an answer to your initial query. In fact, I would have to submit that as an answer to a lot of queries. The car may...

Re: "Brakes" Discussion

Hm. In that case, what if this discussion about a Car related webcomic by Randal Munroe isn't a real life discussion at all, but merely a bunch of people hitting keys on a keyboard, clicking some buttons and having it show up on the "display" in front of them? (I submit meta-conversations ...
