With your host, Morgan Freeman.

I think the entire state of Wisconsin may have less cheese content than this comic strip.

Dude. It takes a hair more than seven years to master poetry-writing. Although one can do other things at the same time...

Pfft, I mastered poetry in like days. I'm too great at it now. Some guy asked me to tone it down a couple weeks ago.

It takes 7 years to get a Masters, not 7 years to master something; I think Zach's mixed up. Or maybe I just don't like it when people frame things in absolutes.

Also I don't think struggling with identity is necessarily linked to a fear of death. Personally I know I'm afraid to die because I always get really freaked out when I use Web MD.

This was my first thought as well, re: Master vs. master.

And while this comic has pretty much everything I hate about SMBC, I actually found it okay, even a little charming.

who cares?

Congrats all on missing the point. Though I doubt he bothers to read such useless comments as these, Zach has my thanks for putting it so well: don't think you're done with your life just because you've started doing one thing.

Snark away, as I will not be coming back to this forum to read your replies.

YOLO. 8)

In all seriousness, even if it is a little BS-ey with the eight years thing, this is still pretty inspirational. Unfortunately I think I spent one of those lifetimes posting on the internet. FUUU

Yo, a Master's takes like 3 years

If you bros were paying University of Phoenix for 7 years of that shit, you need to go get a refund

You're all missing the point. This is Zach's way of telling us he's quiting the web-comic business and going off to stitch intricate lace doilies in the medieval Croatian town of Dubrovnik.
Have fun Zach!

Zach is making a good point, think of how much you can achieve in 7 years, even just doing it on weekends, let alone if it was your job. You don't have to become the best in the world to have mastered something, even 10 hours a week and you're looking at 3500 hours over 7 years. Imagine picking a hobby and doing nothing but eat sleep and practice for 9 months, I think you'd be a pretty good amateur by the end of it.

Coincidentally I've been working in the same area for a little over 5 years and was figuring I was due a change in a couple of years, so 7 years sounds right to me. I can't say I'm going to have 'mastered' what I work at, but I'm not bad at it, and it will be about time for a change.

That sounds like fun, but who's going to use a nine-panel doily?
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.
