By the way, "Bangarang, motherfucker" looks like it could become a mini-meme on this thread. And by the quantum nature of what I'm writing, it probably already has.

Of course, this depends on your pronunciation of "mu". A cow suddenly appearing in one's office would be significantly less distracting.

...that says "bangarang"? I thought it said "bargaining".

after doing a few SW strips I was inspired to make a wallpaper..


here it is (wide screen)
Spoiler:

It keeps getting bigger and bigger... I'll probably stop updating it when I will have no more room for the 9-10 icons I keep on my desktop.


P.S.
for some reason a lot of the new stips on XKCDSW.com are not displaying images..

Amazing wallpaper.

I'd add some lines like "Bangarang motherfucker" and so on, if I wasn't afraid of completely ruining it because my only experience with adapting pictures is well.. none.

In response to the reversal of the order of the one-liners...

I was going to make one that just moved the "Bangarang" one to the left side and leave the others in order, but I guess that idea's already been sort of explored.

Hmm.. I think I'll skip adding bangarang to the wallpaper.. not one of my favorite one-liners (I know I'm a vast minority).. I'll add it to a SW strip instead :D

I can't decide if the wallpaper needs Hitler's face from the Vista comic. (Also, I love how Gandalf's looking at the chalkboard of equations.)

my windows 7 install is stuck on expanding windows files (0%)...
I left it overnight and nothing...

I suppose it is better then vista, but it's damn frustrating
