Hey everyone! I loved this comic, and want to advertise something unrelated. But that would be something a tool would do, and I'm not a tool.

Still, it's a pretty good counter-spam measure because spambots can't use Google. I dread the day they will.
Everybody point at these people and laugh at them for not reading the FAQ.
There's a FAQ? And it mentions Zach's wife's name? Where?

Although I'm starting to think the level of lateral thinking required to connect the dots may be a bit much to ask of Zach's general audience : (

Panel three says they are the definers of "smart", "fit" and "ethical".

Why wouldn't they just create a daily or weekly cap to the amount of points you can earn

Because then:
Monday - Thursday: Everybody tries to beat each other to help that old lady cross the street.
Friday - Sunday: Max ethics points reached - let's push the lady when the bus is coming.

I think that creates negative points. You couldn't intentionally push her unless you could make a case that she was definitely in your way.

This reminds me of Death Race 2000. Except you got more points for killing the young and healthy, because they were harder to catch. Why don't we have blood sports anymore? Not with animals, that would be cruel. But people? I'm all for people!

Given the upcoming space comedy series being released by SMBC Theater, do you think they will take this kind of Sci-Fi concepts like in this comic and apply it to the series (like with Red Dwarf)? I think that would be awesome if they gave it more thought beyond the simple "comedy that just so happens to take place in space based on Star Wars" routine already done by College Humor.
