Seeing as I don't 'get' code (well, I kinda get the gist of it), I laughed more at the Alt and the filename of that, drop database :D
Anything I said pre-2014 that you want to quote me on, just run it past me to check I still agree with myself.

hell, we could start a rival comic over here:
the rival to XKCD... ITT.
in case you didn't get it, the idea is that you replace the letters xkcd with ITT.

Post-post-modernism has finally been invented? Sweet!

I'm going to go make a book titled "book" and instead of writing anything, hollow out the pages and put a mirror inside. Thomas Pynchon aint got nothin' on this.
