Your argument can be summed up as, "You're wrong because you disagree with me."
Was 'objectively' the clue?

All of his comics have been hit or miss for me, but I think the most infuriating thing has been seeing people complain about the state of the comics nowadays. No offense to Zach, but most of his comics were never really "genius" or even intriguing. I've always stuck around because of those special few that are like a bar of gold in a stack of hay. For those saying that the comics aren't funny because they have to read more, stop reading them. You should literally stop in the middle of a sentence and give up rather than expect a humorous punchline.

I generally won't read any SMBC that goes beyond two panels. For what it's worth, he still does write some good single-panel jokes.

I read them all, but I rarely find the long preachy comics to be funny or interesting. I do usually prefer the one or two panel jokes. The formula where in the first panel something dramatic is happening and then the second panel prefaced with "earlier.." he gives an unexpected explanation for the first panel were often my favorites. I don't see those too much anymore. Overall though, I'm not disappointed. He has been doing a comic almost every damn day of the week for years and years. Most web comics don't maintain very well and they are published far less often.

Guys.
He. Puts. One. Out. Every. Day.

You try having a gem of a thought every single fucking day, and then illustrating it. He could do one comic a week and it would probably be amazing. He could be the oatmeal. But he's not. He's Zach, he's SMBC, and if he doesn't have anything funny to say I can at least count on him to make a good point or make me roll my eyes because none of my neighbors or coworkers seem capable of producing a single fucking interesting thought, so it's nice to have the guarantee of at least one a day to get me through the work week.

There are a number of manufacturing methods for gear and pinion wheels, e.g. milling, hobbing, shaving, grinding, casting, etc., however, it is always better to forge gear teeth and finish machine the surface profile after heat treatment, as this procedure significantly increases strength and reliability (design life) over fully machined or cast gear teeth.
