The Clock Billionaire

2014-02-24

People make money from all kinds of stupid things. Some people assume everything is a conspiracy. I prefer to think the two are related, and people are conspiring to cause all the stupid things in my life–in order to make money. It makes stubbing my toe more rational. ↓ TranscriptBILLY: Ugh, power out overnight. All the clocks are wrong! JIMMY: ... Read More »

Pink Phone

2014-02-03

I think people should be able to buy a phone in any color they want. Gold? Sure. Pink? Why not? Sometimes the pink marketing, though, is goofy. ↓ TranscriptAMANDA: Ugh, why do they assume that just because I'm a woman I'd want a pink phone? JIMMY: Maybe it's for men? AMANDA: Yeah, right. They make everything for you in black, ... Read More »

Best Video Game Ever

2013-10-11

I enjoy reading gamers complain about the limitations of games. “Ugh, why can’t I go inside every building?” As if the developers are simply lazy and could easily accommodate such a request. ↓ TranscriptRICK: Someone should make a video game where you can go anywhere and do anything you want! Like, if you want to pilot a plane--have at it! ... Read More »

Young Adult Fiction

A book series about a redneck child beauty pageant contestant who is also a vampire? No, I wouldn’t read that. But a film series? Yes, I would watch that. Or even a TV show. Hire the producers of The Walking Dead, stat! ↓ TranscriptAMANDA: I'm writing my own young adult fiction series. JIMMY: Isn't that hard? AMANDA: Don't be silly! ... Read More »

Skype’d

comic-2013-05-03.jpg

Anyone who has ever tried to teach a parent new technology can relate. That is, if you could even get them as far as depicted in this strip. ↓ TranscriptBILLY: What are you doing on the phone and Skype at the same time? JIMMY: My mom wanted to try Skype, but she didn't understand it. JIMMY: So I called her ... Read More »

What Women Want

comic-2013-05-01.jpg

A lot of people get up in arms about what Google can discover from your search history. I think they mostly discover the majority of us are fairly boring. ↓ TranscriptRICK: Jimmy, check it! We rigged the library computers to log users' search and site history, tag it with their campus ID, and email us the logs! JIMMY: What's the ... Read More »

Missed My Final

comic-2013-04-29.jpg

This was a nightmare of mine throughout college. I don’t think it actually ever happened, but I suppose maybe there was some class I completely forgot about to this day. ↓ TranscriptRICK: Whew! I thought I had overslept my finals, but when I went to class no one was there. It must only be Sunday. BILLY: It's June. Read More »

10K Race

comic-2013-04-12.jpg

This sort of logic can make anything seem easy. If you really want to enjoy someone, try this with their chosen field. Sure, it’ll make you a huge jerk, but that was likely true already, right? ↓ TranscriptJIMMY: I'm thinking of running this 10K race. AMANDA: You? You've never run before in your life. JIMMY: How hard can it be? ... Read More »

Pocket Gadget Size

I understand the desire for a bigger screen on a cell phone, but there has to be a limit, right? I mean, I don’t particularly care to start carrying a separate bag just for my phone. And at some point you just start looking silly holding that thing against your head. I suppose it makes sense for people who rarely ... Read More »

Mac Versus PC

comic-2013-03-01.jpg

I’ve actually had someone get angry at me before because I said I didn’t have a huge preference between the two formats. I’ve used both and find both to have some strengths and weaknesses, but beyond that it’s mostly a tool in my mind. I get someone preferring Toyota over Honda, but I can’t see why it would make them ... Read More »
