Re: "Walkthrough discussion"

Guys, remember how xkcd used to be super obsessed with sex? I had almost forgotten, it had been so long. Luckily the theme's absence has now ended. This quirky character was so nerdy that he has confused sex with video games! How is that even possible?? The humor begins with the fact that this char...

Re: "Infrastructures" discussion

New rule to the xkcd drinking game: take a drink every time someone uses more than one acronym in a single sentence.

Also, something interesting I noticed: take a drink every time someone either partially or totally ignores an xkcd hater's argument.

Re: "Infrastructures" discussion

Ah, here we go, xkcd sucks finally got around to talking about this comic, and honestly: Nearly everything he says I agree with. Oh man. This comic - so terrible. So very terrible. So bad that a single weekend is not enough to document its problems. In fact, I'm having trouble contemplating the idea...

Re: "Walkthrough discussion"

Suggestion: Separate thread for people to discuss whether or not the comic was up to par. Maybe we can even add a poll shaped like a thermometer with cold cheese at the bottom and cheese fusion at the top. I'd appreciate it so I don't have to wade through the inane opinions to get to what I really ...

Re: "Walkthrough discussion"

This comic was stupid and not funny. All it was was a terrible pun, and one unnecessary middle panel. If you're going to have an awkward pause, make sure it actually fits. Achewood got it down to a science. You, Randall, are still figuring it out.

Re: "Infrastructures" discussion

Seems like the biggest pain in the ass with stuff like Windows is simply how intrusive it can be.

Re: "Infrastructures" discussion

Lololololololololoo I love all of the people whining about default MS office features. It takes like 30 seconds to turn them off on your own, or a single right and then left click to turn them off after a single auto-correct. I thought you people understood "nerdy" things. Dude, saying &q...

Re: "Infrastructures" discussion

And now I feel kind of like a troll, seeing as I got someone to register to do a bit of both criticism of my criticism, which I like, as well as Ad Verbatim. I read xkcd fairly regularly, in fact. It's mostly personal preference: I dislike inside jokes. Ones that can be understood from the outside o...

Re: "Infrastructures" discussion

I just think it was in poor taste for him to even reference autism in that way. I'm not particularly mad, but it's just another niggling issue I have.

Re: "Infrastructures" discussion

You know what? All this comic did was make me angry. It seems somewhat hypocritical to talk about smug superiority, what with last week's comic essentially being, "I feel smugly superior to all the people who didn't get the joke because it means that I know something about nerdery they don't,&q...
