Hehe. I love how enthusiastic the doctor is in the second to last panel.

Girls With Slingshots: 2014-01-10: #1174

I want this to happen to me some day, just so I can use that same joke.

Something Positive: 2013-01-13: The Wedding Album pt 6/Old Familiar Faces XII pt 1

Look at how adorably grumpy she is!

PHD Comics: The Higgs Boson Re-Explained

This is an excellent, if long, comic, explaining some really interesting science.

Something Positive: 2013-09-13: First Day Back

I’ve nothing to add. The blurb text at the bottom right says it all.

Gunnerkrigg Court: Chapter 44: Bonus: Okay

Haha. Annie, you had me worried there for a second!

Superlark: Dear Miss Mayor

Wow. I think I would have to quit video games if any of my video games were ever this nice to me. I wouldn’t be able stand the guilt.

Least I Could Do: Back Hoe FTW: 2013-11-05

I got to admit, this is one of the best one-liners LICD has done in a while. If you want to see the start of the storyline click here.

Shortpacked: 2013-05-29: Hindrance

Actually I’m pretty sure it was the porn that spawned the idea.

Shortpacked: 2013-06-03: Hey

This is the most amazing idea ever.

Something Positive: 2013-07-09: Questing

Okay now I want to hire an employee just so I can do this.

Something Positive: 2013-07-10: A Treasure Found

Yeah I’m with PeeJee. I’m not sure I’d go that far.

Questionable Content: #2423: Fairy Tale

Do these kind of exchanges happen in real life? I kind of hope they do.

Flaky Pastry: #38: Tactical Espionage Action

Anyone who has been a stealth rogue in a D&D party has felt this pain.

Questionable Content: #2430: No Scaring The Customers

Hannelore, how I love thee.

Something Positive: 2013-06-04: Do Not Want

I’ve all but decided to make my second cat, who won’t stop meowing, internet famous. This is sure to backfire on me too.

Dumbing of Age: 2012-10-23: Better

Dina is a comforting friend.

Johnny Wander: #425: 2012-10-23: No Belly Pets

My cat allows belly petting in the evening. But not during the day.

Something Positive: 2012-10-26:  Presenting

I sometimes worry this is how my progeny will evolve.

Schlock Mercenary: Book 13: Random Access Memorabilia: 2012-11-01

I have a much similar face for “I want peanut butter” and “I really need to visit the toilet” or so I’m told.

El Goonish Shive: By The Numbers: 2012-07-31

That is an awesome super power. I wouldn’t mind having that ability. Now am I talking about Elliot (the guy) or Susan(the girl)?

Critical Miss: 2012-07-31: Our Little Pony

This is amusing and awesome on many different levels. For one I love the clear-cut reversal of how most female gamers are treated by the video game industry/(male) video game fans. It is a problem that needs attention thrown on it. On top of that making the human equivalent of Fluttershy sexually harass someone is hilarious from an absurd-ist standpoint but requires knowledge of My little Pony:Friendship is Magic

Something Positive: 2012-07-24: Into the Dark

That poor kitty. Also hilarious punchline!

Something Positive: 2012-07-30: What Kind…?

So obviously a continuation of the last link. There were a few comics in between. You might consider reading them. Also my suggestion would be to remove the warning.

Questionable Content: #2149: Everybody Love Angus

This is why I always warn people.

El Goonish Shive: End of Summer: 2012-03-28

EGS is an oldie but great comic with a lot of history. I don’t expect you to find the first few panels funny but the punchline at the end amused me greatly.

Counting Stars By Katie O’Neill

I actually found this comic on Tumblr and managed to find the artist’s portfolio site. Her site doesn’t have much more information than her Tumblr but it at least had the name of the comic. Not humorous but very touching. Enjoy!

Something Positive: 2012-04-05: Hippity-Hop

Exactly! That’s why I only trust the cardboard boxes. They’ll keep me safe.

Something Positive: 2012-02-03: Dumb Ideas

I don’t think I’ve ever managed to get an entire cat’s head in my mouth… they usually run away before I do that, unless I’ve eaten tuna. Why are you looking at me like that?

Something Positive: 2012-02-15: Seasonal Spirit

Does this service exist? It needs to. I have so many friends who would love to get this!

xkcd #1022: So It Has Come To This

I am so doing this from now on.

Questionable Content: #2135: They Also Serve Drinks

I am so loving Hannelore now. She is my favorite. More so than Faye.

SOPA and PIPA – Combating Piracy Stupidly

by on Jan.18, 2012, under Articles, Blog, Comics, Computers, Culture, Gaming, Internet, News, Opinions, Politics, Video Games

For those of you who have been paying attention, there is a list of useful links below. For those of you who haven’t, stay awhile and listen.

Actions being taken by the United State government will begin to fundamentally change the internet. Please read or watch the following to understand what is happening and if you want to take action about it.

[spoiler show="For those of you who would like my words on the subject. Click here."]The United States created the Internet. Despite fancy names like “World Wide Web” and “Global Communication System” and “Series of Tubes”, the internet is not managed by the world. It is managed by corporations on the united states and is subject, for the most part, to US Law. Even more so these days since a majority of the people connect to the internet via their local telecommunication company (phone, cable, satellite, etc).

 

That being said the internet has been pretty untamed for the last few years. Anybody could put or post up anything. Your information was only as secure as how well your protected it. It was effectively the digital wild west. Now, however, the internet is in so many homes, has become the focus of so much economic use (online shopping, movie and song streaming, video games, marketing) that this can’t last. Just like the trains that brought big business to the west, killing off the last place where your only real protection was the gun at your side, progress is going to try to tame the internet for the good of all, to the detriment of the few.

 

This is more or less inevitable. The new internet that will come into place will be highly regulated and likely more forcefully controlled by the big economic interests that want to use it to provide services to the world for money. When they do, innovation will become exceptionally difficult. Websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and the like, will still exist, but their successors likely won’t appear.  Blogs, chat rooms, social networks, bulletin boards/forums system, may or may not survive in this new internet. Words like “National Defense”,  “Anti-Piracy”, “Copyright”, and others will be used to tightly regulate any site that tries to provide the public with ability to communicate and share.

 

Effectively the basis for the internet as we know it, sharing and communicating, will come to an end at the hands of capitalism and censorship.

 

The first steps for this have already begun. The United States government has two acts currently being discussed. The PROTECT IP act (PIPA) and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Both have been getting a lot of news. As of right now, both look to be dying heavily under media massive campaigns set forth by various websites and organizations, despite the money being thrown at it by media and telecom corporations. The best example is today, February 18th, 2012, where websites all over the internet are “Blacking out” or putting up protest notices. You can read up more about what these acts do in the links below, but to summarize the acts allow and empower the US government to try to block or remove internet services (primarily websites) that infringe on copyright, without significant due process.

 

Now I am not a proponent of piracy. I make a living off of software development and I hope to some day make a living as an author. These are both areas that have notably high piracy rates, which concerns me. I would like to be compensated for my effort and work but I also feel that censoring the internet is not the answer. So for now, I protest.[/spoiler]

And many, many more, including you, hopefully.

Something Positive: 2011-11-07: Scratching Post

And when life pukes up a hairball on you, you know you’ve done something wrong.

The Adventures of Superhero Girl: 2011-11-15: #87

Perhaps not the most glamorous way to save the city but I’d still appreciate her if she saved me from the toy poodle menace.

Johnny Wander: #299: party cone

Zoe didn’t get a cone when she was spayed. I wonder why…

Girl Genius: 2011-11-18: Vol 12, Page 6

Suddenly I don’t want to be respected by the people of Mechanicsburg. (If you need context, you only have to go back one page.)
