Re: 1591: "Bell's Theorem"

Thread starts with quantum, moves to evolutionary psychology / neural structures before the end of the first page..

Re: 1520: Degree-Off

As an engineer I can state that my field is also Neutral. I'm doubting between True Neutral and Lawful Neutral though. Also in the defense of physics: I believe there would have been a few quite devastating world wars if it weren't for the nuclear bomb. MAD was completely insane but it worked. Engi...

Re: 1494: “Insurance”

Come to think of it, the system really is incredibly lax. How the heck does it work so well?? The same way whole other swathes of society usually works so well, from (random examples) motorway driving to behaviour at large crowd events. In the majority of cases the vast majority of people behave in...

Re: 1433: "Lightsaber"

I remember my first question when seeing the lightsaber was "Why does it have to be so short?" Now I understand that there's an optimal length for weilding such a dangerous weapon, but the question still remains, would it be plausible (in the canon of course), to just make a super long li...

Assuming you utilize useful, non-redundant structures: your truly unique rules result thusly; understand, accumulation produces further returns.

Re: 1433: "Lightsaber"

With an ithe-berg. (pronounced with a long-i, of course) I'm afraid that Ithe-berg will have to be pun-thawed I'm quite disappunted. While puns are, of course, the highest form of humor, using the word "pun" itself as part of a pun is lowbrow and deserving of punishment. I always begin to...

Re: 1056: Felidae

Oh noez, the comic is not based on the scientific data! The "coolness" of the cat name is something entirely subjective, but you can totally measure the name popularity, using the number of Google search results: cat - 2,900,OOO,OOO (obviously most popular) tiger - 544,OOO,OOO lion - 468,...

Re: 0938: "T-Cells"

Wow. Randall, implying that a lentiviral vector is equivalent to an HIV infection is ignorant and irresponsible. I can't help but feel that you know better. I'm sorry but I was pretty disappointed with this comic. I get that Mr. Munroe is probably not a specialist in genetics methodology but lentiv...

I'm pretty sure that NOWHERE in the comic does it imply that the person will become HIV+. You made that up in your head and then argu...

Re: "Anxiety" discussion (#779)

What. :| Yeah, that. It's 'funny' (and sad) that Randall thinks this is a good comic. Or does he? Thanks Canineteeth for explaining it, I couldn't be bothered figuring out how all the details meshed. I figured it was something that stupid and immature. I did not get this u til I saw the wiki page a...
