Title text- I firmly believe that nothing can go wrong on a project, if you're wearing one of those wrist things

Edit: its up
Edit2: title text typo fix

I think it may be a 'test' comic. <_<

Edit: now showing up as 'Static'. Oh dear, he got the naming a bit off didn't he? :p

HI JOEE


Also.. This comic is fucking rad. The 'Static' one.. not the blank one.

hehe, geeksquad.

I have never heard of these wrist things! But still funny.

Also, this was about 5 minutes late. I was terrified that the tubes might be blocked.

Yay! It's here.

And nothing can possibly happen if you wear one of those anti-static thingys. I have a few in my closet just in case I have to look pro.

I believe the joke was he changed the RAM while he was wearing a condom. If I'm wrong though I feel awfully silly :oops:

Not entirely -- it seems he had a condom on, at least.

No, but there is a proper way to wear one... Which requires the prerequisite that changing your ram.... er.... gets you up......

Well, he had the strap on properly during sex, so presumably had the condom on properly while changing ram.

But unless he had the wrist-thing on his genitals, I'd assume the latter. But short of installing a ground wire in the condom, I don't think I'd call any application "properly used" for changing RAM.

FCN wins the thread.

I saw the first panel and thought it was a joke about the Wiimote's "condom" that you can use in place of the wrist strap. Or in addition to it. Whatever. I guess he could have essentially made almost the same joke either way.
