XKCD: It's more than a comic:

Viceroy
Perhaps. I'm aware of the whole "chan-speak=loser" connotation to that word, but I decided it applied.
The promises of children are worth less than the children themselves.
Now that we're bitchy about everything, may I ask what the heck is your avatar? I can't seem to figure it out.

"...And Zoidberg!.png"? Wha?

I'm not saying "postive and positive only", I'm saying you should at least pretend to act civil, instead of insulting other posters and acting all high and mighty for having a different opinion.

The old avatar was an image of Space Coyote's anime Futurama picture, cropped an area with Zoidberg, and then applied filters to it.

Jethro, I am very civil. I didn't call anybody asshats like Ana did for example. And the thread history seems to indicate criticism is apparently bad.

Some other posters have written more vitriolically than you, Mr. Lostman, but you do have sort of a high-and-mighty attitude. You just use less curse words.

Space Coyote fuck yeah!

I see a butthurt xkcd fan that is bitching not everybody likes xkcd. Pot meet kettle. (See what I did thar?)

I'm actually not really an xkcd fan. I merely find it funny at times. And actually, my butt does hurt a bit right now, thanks for noticing.

"Bitching" is another word for whining, which actually applies to the one using it.
I am perfectly aware of what the word means, and yes, I am bitching. Pseudo Intellectuals with nothing to do but type out high falutin "Critisms" for the purpose of getting attention bug me. Secondly, I type how I talk. Bitching and Whining are redundant I know, but it drives the point home. Dont meik mi go ful fuhnetik on yuh.

Pseudo?

Also, spending maybe ten minutes every other day or less isn't exactly time-consuming. I don't actually need attention from the internet (much less you) considering I lead a full life..

Edit: I want you to see no. four.

Edit: Any of you claim to have an IQ of 224?

I think that filename extensions will become part of mainstream humor in a few years.
It Just Bugs Me! - a place to discuss media, real life, and other topics.

Why do you keep asking that? Besides, there's even a trope about people getting the score system wrong.

[ed] No Forever in You Fail The IQ Test. Odd, is it not a snowclone?

I need to identify someone.

Lostman, I learned a long time ago that waving one's IQ around like a sledgehammer to validate one's arguments is a losing game. I'm not going to say what mine is, but it's high enough that you don't gain any traction with me by claiming to be hyperintelligent. Also, 224 is statistically impossible. There would exist no test capable of measuring an IQ that high reproducibly. Unless I'm Completely Missing the Point and you're snarking on someone else's claim, in which case I apologize.

Still, while I fully recognize your right to not like xkcd, is there some reason you feel you need to lambaste us with your opinions every time a new one comes out? You don't seem to be seeking validation, and as far as I can tell you have interests other than this one webcomic (I hope), so what is it that brings you back here other than the perverse desire to rain on our collective parade?

Does the thought of someone liking xkcd hurt you so much? If so, then if I were you I'd start examining my own motivations.

Ironically, the pursuit of the definition of happiness does not appear to be a happiness-maximizing behavior.

And the thread history seems to indicate criticism is apparently bad.

Actually, I've been critiquing the individual strips in this thread for a while now without receiving any extreme reactions. The first example is on page 4.

Exits, pursued by a bear.
Same thing with me, although I'm not sure when I started criticizing the individual strips.

@Lostman: Four? What does that have to do with anything? I didn't reference a grudge against the author at all. I'm assuming you don't know him.

And identify who?

Ok, I think today's officially crosses the line at least twice.

edit: Nah, to be honest, just twice.

Your funny quote here! (Maybe)
Indeed
That's hilarious. Although didn't the little prince die at the end of the book? Sure, he calls it "leaving his body behind" when he is to be bitten by the snake, but still.

@Padur: I think he might've meant number 5. It seems to answer many people's questions here.

The Little Prince... that brings back memories. Too bad they're about to be erased in an omphalos of thermonuclear fire!

Still under copyright, but it has sold over 80 million copies, making it the seventeenth-best-selling book in any language, ever. Roughly.

Just above The Da Vinci Code and The Catcher in the Rye :/
