Spontaneously worshiping whatever celestial body was most visible at the moment... ah, those were the days...

Our priorities are kinda sad.

What on earth is sad about this?!

Somewhere out there, someone has discovered a cure for cancer... and is selling it as milkshake.

This reminded me of "Future Shocks" these were short stories in the "2000ad" mag/comic, (it's a british publication)

At least, Capitalists are independent and serve self-specified ethics instead of one single set of codes that everyone (including all others whether or not they agree) must follow that set of codes without any open thought to alternatives that could inspire people to grow and to face the good and bad consequences of their own actions and inactions instead of shifting the blame to some "system" or "religion" or "cult" as they're simply doing what they were told to do by other elitists who thought they knew better than everyone else. *inhales* I really need to learn how to split sentences better than I do.


Right, because there are no religious capitalists whose religious morals/ethics play a part in their conduct.

Please, people. He spelled jihadists with diacrtitics. Clearly he has a deeper understanding of the issue than we do.

Shouldn't panel five be say designers not definers?

(also I feel when the question is "What is the first name of Zach's wife?", then, "Jesus! Why the hell should I know. What am I, Zack's motherfucking stalker?" is a valid answer.)

My original response was indeed something along the lines of "How the bloody fuck should I know?".
Still, it's a pretty good counter-spam measure because spambots can't use Google. I dread the day they will.

That's not really a question.
