Re: Girl Thread: The first rule of PMS - Only talk about chunks

It feels like the relationship is less special after just over a month, and I'm confused as to why or how we can make things fun again. (for the record, I've tried to make fun conversation, she just doesn't take the hint) I'm considering just flat honesty that it isn't as fun for me, but she alread...

Re: Girl Thread: The first rule of PMS - Only talk about chunks

Funny, when I realized that I needed to get some female opinions on a problem that this is the first place I think of. Anyways. HI GIRLS OF XKCD! I happen to be in a long-distance relationship, and (ironically) the main form of communication is AIM. We're both in college, states apart, but live in t...

Re: "Far Away" Discussion

I don't understand how or why, but xkcd seems eerie to me for the first time. I have a long distance girlfriend, and usually we talk each night over AIM. Tonight was the first night in weeks where there didn't seem to be much of a connection, so I logged off and checked xkcd before going to sleep. W...

Wow. I thought we were on track for a super funny comic story, but I never imagined it would lead into something so epic.

XKCD - The Movie

Tell me you wouldn't like to see the comic made into a continuous, full-length movie? It would retain its cartoon stick-figurism, but possibly be 3d animated. Of course, it would be written by Randall. I can only imagine Randall coming up with an epic plot, dripping with subplot and metahumor and su...

I think we need a definition for freudian slip, because I've only heard them mentioned in reference to messing up your sentence to include sexual terms. Like, "I think away" into "I think I'm gay" or something. What he said seems to be more like speaking before thinking. Or at le...

Either k or (k+1) must be even, and the other must be odd. Thus, the product is even. Thus, it is divisible by two.
