Comment Re:Family Guy (Score 2, Funny) 427

It's just like reading newspaper comics to other people. None of the effect and none of the humor.

"Y'see in this next panel Garfield is asleep, it's funny because Garfield is lazy and it's typical of his behavior. Now in the next panel he opens one eye and he says 'Mondays'. Which as you recall from last week when I read this comic to you, Garfield expressed his disdain for that particular day of the week. Interesting side note, the name 'Monday' actually comes from 'Moon Day'. Perhaps Garfield used to have some involvement in the space program. SO anyway..."

Comment But.. It's tv! It's TV! (Score 1) 321

People are just thinking about this now? I've been without tv for months. It's beautiful. Now it'll take a bit to get adjusted I grant you. The complete Simpsons is a big file. But once you get that on your system it's smooth sailing from there. Plus there are other forms of entertainment that're better than tv. Like books. I know you've seen them around. But seriously they're like big DVD box sets. You just sit there and read them, and it's entertaining. You're like 'I wonder what Elric of Melnibone's gonna get up to today? Life's not easy for Elric of Melnibone that's for sure'. Then when people talk about tv, you say 'Hey have you heard of Elric of Melnibone?' and the people you talk to will think you're cool because they'll think you're talking about some new TV show that you can only get on fancy extended cable. But you'll never tell ;)

Pssh. 7 meters? Come on outer space, for all your terrifying voidsomeness you sure aren't flinging much in the way of horror our way. What's this I heard apparently Apophis now isn't even a threat. And the Tunguska incident? Hate to break it to your outer space, but nobody was living int he area you hit. Yeah and you'll probably point out the dinosaurs. Sure sure. Let's see you land a decent hit a little more often then every few million years.
What's wrong outer space? Having trouble hitting a mote of dust floating in a sunbeam?

Comment It's called a roof you morons! (Score 1) 478

So you're telling me this multi-billion dollar piece of machinery just has parts of it exposed to the open air that birds can get into, or at least drop stuff into, and that's all it takes to make it shut down? Did they run out of plywood while cobbling this thing together? Or did the bucket of rocks holding the tarp in place over the component get knocked over by some pesky raccoon?

That's nothing! NOTHING! Have you even seen what's in pig, chicken, cow, and sheep manure? And they actually use that stuff to grow food. I mean it's the feces of animals, and they're dumping it on our food to make it grow. But somehow the food is okay and safe to eat. Maybe there's something about plants that allows them to thrive on things that are poisonous to us, but allows them to produce fruits and vegetables that are also edible to us.

Comment Just like Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft. (Score 1) 151

Yeah I heard something like this while back. Supposedly all the big console companies were thinking of buying up their own studios and divvying up the market. Nintendo was going to buy Capcom, Sony was gonna get Square, and Microsoft was going to get EA. Strange how that never came to fruition.
