Re: 1337: "Hack"

Am I the only one disappointed by the fact that while Crash's slogan appeared on the monitors, the final panels suggest that Burn executed the hack? I was disappointed by this, until I realized the movie came out about 19 years ago. If Crash and Burn are still hangin out in pools together, they're ...

Re: 1145: "Sky Color"

Obviously the answer to the Feynman conundrum is gravity. It works downwards, so up and down is special. Whereas horizontal is an equipotential plane so anything can happen. This is awesome. I want this question to come up in conversation sometime so I can give this answer. It's like blaming things...

Re: 1127: "Congress"

I find that the hegemony and rigid ideological divide of the current parties become less important on this timescale. Regarding the ideological divide - I generally make the assumption that the division we have today has (more-or-less) always been present. I thought it was great how this graph fixe...

I suspect that his goal was to provide some context to the US's current political state, and to provide a view of US history that few have. I've never seen anything describe this information so concisely and clearly.

This is really beautiful. It looks like a spinal cord ripped out, or something. Like Congress is our political backbone. Or perhaps it looks like a vein and an artery.

Re: 0970: "The Important Field"

Great strip. I had to read it a couple of times before I got it. For some reason this reminds me of when President Reagan had Libya bombed in 1986. We accidentally hit the French embassy. One of the reasons given was that we didn't know that address was for the French Embassy. Over the next few day...

What is with TI's current trend of locking out programmer hobbyists? I'm sure their calculators produced a large group of geeks fluent in computerese who all got their start on TI.

Is there something wrong with cunnilingus?



Not at all; it just seems overrepresented in comics about sex, compared to other sexytimes activities.


I bet many women wish it was more represented in actual sexytimes activities...
