I fully support this comic.

P.S. Don't forget to check out the next season of The Sarah Connor Chronicles this fall on FOX!

P.P.S. I can kill you with my brain.

That hardly seemed "exhaustively researched". It must really be Summer Glau.

Summer Glau was already taken, so, I opted for SummerGlau.

I've done my part. Have you?

It's rather a pity that you used "it's" where it should have been "its" on several occasions. (There were a couple of other minor spelling/grammar errors as well.) It probably would have been a good idea to include a reference to the xkcd strip as well.

Thank you, scarlet, I also feel that this error reduced the effectiveness of the rant. But a link to the comic proved unnecessary, judging from the subsequent posts.

I did see that someone else had spotted it, but I feel it is appropriate to acknowledge the inspiration for the whole thing, and it might also gather some readers who hadn't seen the comic. Admittedly most of them wouldn't still be reading too closely by the time they got to the references, but any who were would probably be the kind to appreciate xkcd.

I think we should constitute a binding standard for Summer Glau ventings, controlling things like this controversial xkcd-attribution and of course bibliographic references. There is for example this ISO standard: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_690. Also important is this "p.s. [...]" string, so the individual rants are easier to locate with Google.
What about licensing?
Furthermore we need a database preserving these rants and context, in case they vanish somehow...
Perhaps someone should organize an international movement.

So it isn't a blog, and it's not an original rant.
At least I tried.

A rebuttal to why Garchomp should not be Uber.

That was fun. I should do this more often.
Insert witty phrase here.

For those of you in the U.S., Summer Glau will be on the Big Bang Theory next monday, 3/2.


I will be watching.
She will watch back.

Check my answer. Much ROFLcopter. I am Okapi on Y!A, as well. :lol:


EDIT: Do the Sarah Connor Chronicles even come on anymore? I haven't had cable in a while.

Hmm... I wonder if I can link this as an excuse for (deliberately) feeding the trolls (with a 500+ word Youtube reply).
