Re: 0836: "Sickness"

you mean the constant attention whoring coming from you? that may be it. and they have tried too disprove, you just rebut it by making <s>scathing</s> remarks about sexual acts, which the last time I've heard a comeback like that was from a third grader. but my Ad Hominem attack has nothing to do wi...

Re: 0836: "Sickness"

I would like to point out that it was the muslims who did most of the work. What little the church did save, they proceded to lose in the middle ages. The Islamic people had a habit of archiving everything they could for the most part. Most of the greek's innovations would have been lost without them.

Re: 0836: "Sickness"

No, this comic is nothing but a preachy harangue by randall's Gary Stu standin, and nobody is calling him out on his failure because they're busy agreeing with him and deciding which cheek to kiss. Maybe its because the people who care enough to join the forum are either the people who agree with h...

Re: 0836: "Sickness"

And if Randall is ruining anything for you, then stop reading his damn comic! It's really really not hard to do... Actually, it is: recently someone in my Computer Science course mail-list posted (paraphrased) "HEY LOLZ XKCD MADE A COMIC ABOUT WIKILEAKS AND IT'S TOTALLY THE FUNNIEST THING LIKE...
