[2015-6-9] - The meaning of self?

Postby hanchogrande » Tue Jun 09, 2015 3:53 pm

I'm afraid I simply don't understand this comic. Clearly self is being used to some other meaning, but I don't understand why. What could be the context of it, does anyone know?

I think "myself' refers to her own physical body, rather than "myself" meaning her virginity

The girl took a too literal interpretation of the word myself. When the priest told her to save herself until marriage he meant not to have sex until she was married. She interpreted it as preserving her "self" which in her case was remaining alive. The priest then whispers to her, no I meant don't have sex until your are married, to which she replies "ARE YOU INSANE?!"

Not one of the best ones. Too abstruse, and a bit forced.

Man that really bugged me. Talking about forced. Like parents naming their son "Albert Isaac _____". Recognizing female scientists is great, but Lovelace and Curie are like the only two that an average person might recognize. Zach even did a comic about over-representation of Marie Curie when discussing female scientists. It's also crazy pretentious and laying a lot on the kid.

In full disclosure, for my name if I'd been a girl, my parents chose "Emma" by flipping to the contributing authors in the then-latest edition of Manual of the Vascular Flora of the Carolinas and Virginia.

Thankyou for that. I've been wondering for a year as to what this secret "nerdiest" code was, unable to work it out. I even gave in one day, and emailed the creator of the comic, and he didn't tell me a thing. All this time, I was told to "talk to a moderator" and yet couldn't get the email or contact details of a moderator until I registered..... :roll:

Now I can join in on these discussions! Excellent!

Honestly, how was I meant to know that the creator of the comic even HAD a child, let alone what her name was? Isn't that a bit of a violation of his privacy? Was I meant to webstalk the poor man? ...Also, I don't see how Ada or Marie are nerdy names, but hey, that's a matter of opinion.
