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!

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.
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.
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.
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?
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 use it as a phone and are more interested it as a tablet, but then why not just get a tablet and use Skype on those rare occasions you need to make a phone call?
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 angry.
Occasionally there was a guy in college who would try to fool everyone. He usually just ended up wasting everyone’s time. Nobody was particularly happy about it, except for that guy. He probably ended up in Congress.
I love video games. I love playing them, and I love talking about them. I do not love a lot of the whining about video games. This recent holiday season gave us fantastic titles like Halo 4 and Assassin’s Creed 3, and yet there was plenty of bellyaching about there being nothing “new” to these games. Of course, when a developer does try something new, they’re usually lambasted for it.
One does begin to wonder this when you realize that very few people actually dress how they like, but instead how they think someone else expects them to (see work). Yes, the bank may force you to wear a tie, but who does the bank believe is deciding their banking choices based on ties? They must fear this. They must believe deep in their souls that a significant population won’t do business with them if their employees don’t wear ties.
Worse, there is a population who must fear what will happen if they do business with a bank where people don’t wear ties. Or who might judge them for doing business with such a bank?
