Ah, so that's what was missing! I thought there was something a little off about SMBC lately.

Erm, what if you're not a psychopath, you're just capable of ignoring consequences and morals?

Guidance counsellors are trained in the art of lying.

There's only one group of people who are "capable of anything," and it ain't moral relativists.


Right, but, see, there's a part when you have to make a joke. That an actual moral relativist wouldn't murder people (or whatever) because she feels that murder is only wrong by subjective standards is the point of the comic; the child is too young to understand the nuance of the way in which moral relativism was presumably defined in the philosophical books he'd been reading.

See this doesn't work, because a psychopath under your bed isn't scary.

Of course -- who could forget those exemplary moral relativists, the Nazis?

There's only one group of people who are "capable of anything," and it ain't moral relativists.

They taught me that if a guy apologises and catches a plane, then he loves you unconditionally and should forgive him.

I'm bipolar because I think that's a license to be an unpredictable dick at times, and wallow in self pity when I'm not. Also, when I do or say something nonsensical or illogical, it's because I'm quirky.

Contemporary romantic comedies have taught me many things.

Hey, how about you be the guy who appropriates mental illnesses to make himself sound quirky?


I love quirky people.

I got all those three covered, so it's cool.

I'm willing to bet I'm not the only one either.

How can you be the token Australian if there's heaps of us?
Psycho is very, very taken. I'm a pyromaniac, but not a practitioner, so maybe...?
