Title text: Hey guys! What's eating you? Ha ha ha it's me! Oh, what fun we have.

I have to say, I went immediately to Dinosaur Comics hoping for a black hat guy cameo.

Re: 1282: "Monty Hall"

Once I understood the reference though, it did make me smile. I can think of plenty of people (me included) who would prefer a goat. A goat is self-sustaining, and doesn't require me to pay several thousand pounds a year in insurance, taxes etc.. The car may involve insurance and gas, but the goat ...

Re: 1268: "Alternate Universe"

This is how I feel about people who use "an" instead of "a" in front of words that begin with "h." Well, that one depends on accents more than anything else... There are words (eg "history") for which the H is pronounced in some accents and silent in others. ...

Re: 1187: "Aspect Ratio"

It's like trying to watch the TV in every single mid range hotel. Hyatt, Hilton, Mariott Marquis, whatever. They almost all have HD TVs, mostly SD content, a default aspect ratio of "wide", and the menu system locked down so that you can't fix it.

But I think I'm already too late for that.


How about, "I'm from Seattle (which is in the US) and we argue about football (soccer) most of the year."

Re: 1015: "Kerning"

I know what bad kerning looks like, but I can never figure what good kerning looks like. It's a good thing I don't do it for a living.

Re: 0990: “Plastic Bags”

This is why Costco is genius. They don't have plastic bags at all, instead they save space in their recycling bin by getting all of their customers to take random bits of excess cardboard.

Re: 0985: "Percentage Points"

If he entered the current Republican Presidential race right now, Senator Grayton would probably become the leader with Mitt Romney in second.

They are otherwise almost out of candidates that are "not Mitt Romney"...

Re: "1996" Discussion

I got the distinct impression that in the last panel the guy was essentially turning to the camera like he was questioning TI directly as they read the comic. Looking back, I see absolutely nothing to signal this, it's not like he has a face. I have to know, did other people see him turn to look at ...

Re: "SkiFree" Discussion

Oh man, I played GORILLAS.BAS so much back in the days of Dosshell. I never knew anyone one else who knew what it was. Isn't that basically a reflavored version of Artillery ?

Re: "SkiFree" Discussion

The first game I can remember playing on PC was Snakes that came in QBASIC, also with a game about a gorilla tossing a banana. Had Zork on a VIC-20, erm it probably would have been a C-64 by then. I still haven't fucking finished it. Oh man, I played GORILLAS.BAS so much back in the days of Dosshel...
