Does Not Illustrate: Strange Minds Think Alike get usage counts

solarpone
I seriously don't get how the image shows the trope. Even with the caption, I don't understand it. Hell, when it's that close up, you can't even tell that it's a ladder. This trope can be image'd, I think, but I think this one is generally terrible.

No, the other one.
I think it's even misleading. It suggests that two different people came up with an idea that was lifted from a poem. As that's a common source for the inspiration, it doesn't follow some kind of Insane Troll Logic as the trope dictates.

Motion to pull, with or without a replacement.

serial tweaker, sorry
Support the pull.
please don't capitalize my handle. I just don't like it.

Pull it.

Personally, I think the page would work fine without an image.

Supporting pull there. That's plain laughable.

Pull, it's incomprehensible.

Magic seven votes! It's gone — haven't tagged the page since this discussion isn't done yet.

[up] Thanks for doing that. What I normally do is tag the page as such:

%% Image removed per Image Pickin' thread: [link]
%% Please see thread to discuss a new image.

Once the thread resolves, I either change the tag to the standard form or change the second line to "Please start a new thread if you'd like to suggest an image." if the thread clocks out.

I went through the webcomic examples and I think we have some viable options:

  • Panels 1 and 2 (maybe cropped) of this
  • Panels 2 and 3 from both this and this as a 2x2 collage, or even just panel 3 from each as a 2-paneler
  • Something from this...I'm thinking either panels 2-4 and 6 or 2-5 as a 2x2

[up]First one I can't really tell its different people coming up with the same thing because the first panel is just hands. I do like the second one(s) though.

Option 2 is decent. I really like option 3 (panels 2, 3, 4, 6), though.

I think the internet has a term for that, let me remember what it is... oh yeah!

[up] I was thinking that even as I was building it...oh well. I'll try to put together something from the second option this afternoon.

[hits the snooze]

Alright, here's my take on the second option...if this one doesn't fly them I'm out of ideas.

 20 Another Duck, Mon, 8th Oct '12 9:28:29 PM from Stockholm Relationship Status: Chocolate!
No, the other one.
[up]It's not great, but it does sort of illustrate the trope, I think. The bad part is that it was an actual accident, which means there's nothing strange with it happening in the first place. However, two other people think the same thing, and for what isn't exactly a common occurence.

Rather than hitting the snooze on this one, I'll give it one final bump for any further comments on the last suggestion.

I don't think 15 is tl;dr, although Duck's caveat is pertinent.

Soldering accident is fine too

Eh...not really seeing three ayes as enough consensus to run with the other webcomic suggestion, so let's just lock up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
