Comics 925 and 926: Boredom Given Form

925. Black hat guy! How exciting! And he's making a joke about correlation and causation by suggesting that cancer causes cell phones! Because . . . well, I guess that's just a thing that he does now? Maybe? In honesty, this one isn't exceptionally loathsome so much as boring, except for the alt text, which reads: "He holds the laptop like that on purpose, to make you cringe."

Look, Randy. If you ever find yourself about to go back and point out that you made a joke, just stop. It is never a good idea. At worst it ruins a subtle joke, or, as in this case, it makes you look really desperate. "GUYS MAYBE YOU DIDN'T NOTICE BUT THERE WAS THIS HILARIOUS BIT IN PANEL 2 WHERE BLACK HAT GUY HOLDS HIS LAPTOP IN A WAY WHICH IS BAD FOR LAPTOPS, AND I DID THAT ON PURPOSE BECAUSE HE IS BLACK HAT GUY AND HE LIKES IT WHEN YOU SUFFER."

926. My first thought when I heard "time vulture" was that episode of Doctor Who where those giant winged time things show up when Rose is stupid and creates a paradox and then cries a lot. Other people are pointing out that the Weeping Angels in Doctor Who kill you by sending you back in time and letting you age to death. But that's really neither here nor there.

The first thing I notice here is that Randy apparently did some revisions on this one and then forgot. The Time Vultures, as he describes them, are scavengers, and are not "using aging to kill prey." They are just waiting for their prey to die, from aging. There's kind of an important difference there!

The second thing I notice is that, while there is nothing funny about this comic, there is also nothing of any other emotional quality to speak of. It's not poignant. Nobody is going to reconsider their place in the universe vis-a-vis how puny and insignificant their lives are because of this. It's just "here is a thing I just thought of." He doesn't do anything with the concept. He just kind of presents it.

As I often do in comics where I have difficulty fathoming why anyone would like this, I visited the forodes for this one. Below are my findings.

At first glance this comic does not appear to reveal much but I feel like Randall has shown, in a very interesting way, the inevitability of death. I also feel that this comic reflects current events that have been surrounding his life and to that, I wish the best of luck to him.


The way he phrases this makes it sound like this is the first time anyone has pointed out that he'll die eventually.

On a slightly different tangent I just finished watching HP7 part 2 and the similarity in theme slightly spooked me out.


I just watched Harry Potter 7 part 2 as well and there is no similarity in theme. This is the same guy as before, by the way.

Please tell me there was someone else who's only thought while reading this comic was this


Even the forumites think this is reminiscent of the Weeping Angels!

Clearly evolution is wrong, because we don't have one of these.


I guess this guy thinks this idea is really awesome?

No, not the Weeping Angels, the Reapers from 'Father's Day'. They are more like time vultures.


Apparently I'm not alone in thinking of the things from that one episode! Apparently they are called Reapers.

Grrrr I spent the greater part of this school year staying up as long as I could until I nearly collapsed asleep, because every time I'd lay down the same "holy crap you're going to die and you're wasting what time you have sleeping" thought would pop into my head. I finally managed to push it out a month or two ago, and then Randall goes and pulls this crap :( What a jerk!


GET HELP.

...and I'm done. Most of the comments in the thread seem to be off-topic, which usually is a sign that the comic isn't doing much for them. A fair number of them seem to be impressed with the concept of "a bird that waits for you to die, THROUGH TIME," though, which is kind of sad.

  10. Oh by the way, when people write comments on the internet, they sometimes make spelling mistakes. I'm pretty sure everybody here knows the difference between "its" and "it's". Pointing out the mistake each time someone makes it instantaneously shows that you're the worst kind of asshole.

  15. "Hardly less important to Harmonians is the distinction between worthy and unworthy people. Certain people, by virtue of their abilities, moral characters, responsibility, and seriousness, are on a higher plane of being than the mass of mankind. In books, these people can be identified by page time, presence in important adventure sequences, importance to the plot, lack of being portrayed in a frivolous, humorous manner, and lack of significant flaws. In real life, these people can be identifed by their sensitivity, earnestness, intelligence, imaginativeness, artistic sensibilities, idealism, and -- most important of all -- ability to perceive and appreciate romance between Harry and Hermione. I am not trying to be sarcastic here: this one thing, above all, is treated as an absolutely distinguishing indicator of moral worth."

Meta-humor should be reserved for the more unsophisticated and dull-witted types who unnecessarily embellish their sentences with superfluous adjectives and otherwise wordy word choices until they end up with single sentences as long as paragraphs and is clearly beneath the likes of us, ALTF.

  65. Well, I learned something new. I thought that "Harmonian" was just another word for someone who ships Harry/Hermione, but it turns out it refers to a particular faction of Harry/Hermione shippers. I do like the Harry/Hermione pairing, but I'm pretty sure the Harmonians would reject me, since I also ship Harry/Draco.

    I always liked both pairings, but originally I liked H/Hr way more. But after reading book 5, I realized it was never going to happen, and I was pretty irritated, and then I basically jumped ship to H/D. So now I like H/D more, though I still like H/Hr.

    I know H/D makes absolutely no sense, but...well, it's hot. Also, I think their personalities create an interesting dynamic when put together which can result in some entertaining stories. Also...HOT.

    But yeah, I utterly detest the Ron/Hermione pairing. It's not that I dislike all bickering couples- I LOVE Spike/Buffy, and they're totally a "slap slap kiss" couple. But when Spike and Buffy fought, it was witty and funny and cute.

    Ron and Hermione just nag and nag and bitch at each other in a really grating, annoying way. And it seems like their fighting is a result of the fact that their most core beliefs, values and personality traits are diametrically opposed to each other. So I just don't see how they're compatible at all.

    I used to like Ron in earlier books, but he became more jerky and whiny as time went on, and also he's not nearly as smart as Hermione. And I like Hermione, so yeah, I do think she's too good for Ron.

    Anyways, most of the HP movies have been rated PG-13, so why would 10 year olds see them? They're not even allowed to see them.

    It's porn for girls. I mean, OK, look at how horrible live action porn is for girls. Practically all the guys are ugly and hairy and UGH. Plus all the actors always look like they'd prefer to be stabbing themselves right in the face rather than acting in a porn video. I mean, how can you get off on two people having sex who are CLEARLY hating every second of it? Plus, frankly, most live action porn involves degrading and humiliating women.

    Also there's no storyline in live action porn, and girls like storylines. Even if you look at a standalone porn drawing on 4chan, there's a storyline there *in your mind* because you KNOW these characters so you have an idea about their personality and their relationship, so that will be way more enjoyable than looking at live action porn with random actors.

    So, basically. This is our porn! You shouldn't bother us about it unless you want girls to bother you when you're looking at your porn.

    This obsession with shaving and scenting every man to look like a 12 year old girl is not only eerie but barely existed before the '80s.

    But your opinion on how good looking men are in various genres of porn is noted.

    ReplyDelete
  83. You do realize you could say the same thing about women, right? There was a time when nobody expected women to shave off all their body hair so that they "looked like 12 year old girls." But in this day and age, most people find body hair disgusting and unattractive. So, you know, get used to it.

    If I'm going to do all the work of shaving, then I damn well expect the same courtesy from my partner, because I don't want to look at gross body hair any more than he does.

  89. @Chaos same applies to women, pedo. It's just that there's been historical precedent for making women more girl-like and virginal and pure and generally quasi-underage - but not one pervading the whole of Western culture until a few American cosmetics companies found another way of telling women that nature is disgusting and they should be ashamed of their own bodies.

    This, of course, is all from a country which still brings routine genital mutilation to infant boys.

  94. Hey pedos! (or is it pedoes? anyway). I can't help but notice that there is no reference to Adolf Hitler in this thread. What a shame. So here i go:

    Adolf Hitler.

    You're all nazi pedophiles.

  96. @7:17 ever heard of dandies? What about the romantic movement? These did not laud a particularly primal male aesthetic.

    Chaos: body hair on women isn't gross. I love it as long as isn't too ridiculously thick and dark and is kept clean enough to not be harbouring sweat and bacteria. Stop projecting your socially acquired body image issues on others.

  97. "both men and women are, in this day and age, expected to shave off their body hair"

    What? No. I don't know what country you live in, but in America, the majority of men do not shave their body hair, nor do women want them to.

  98. @8:58: You're right about dandies, but the aim was neither to create a child-like sexual object nor did the habit pervade Western culture to the extent that it created a new image of the ideal man. The majority of people simply didn't have the resources to pamper themselves, and many of the rest mocked the style.

    I love queening it up from time to time - as does any British public school closet faggot. But the rest of the time I consider acceptable scent to be achieved through washing rather than perfume and any man to be expected to have an amount of body hair, sweat and stubble.

    But I think you're agreeing with me. The point is for people to be happy with nature's lot while not ignoring that there are freakish extremes which don't need to be lauded.

    tl;dr The white knight woman-child that is Randall Munroe is the worst possible role model.

    The twins were examined from head to toe. Measurements of every inch were taken. Dr. Mengele demanded specific and careful exams. If any detail was missed the staff, usually a prisoner doctor, would be punished. The twins were allowed to keep their hair for the first several days of the examination. After all the living data was taken the twins would be killed by a single injection of chloroform in the heart. Care was taken to insure the twins died at the same time. The twins were then dissected with the organs being sent to research centers.

    Prisoner doctors tell of the fate of two Hungarian twins who arrived at Auschwitz late in 1943. Dr. Mengele was at the camp selection. The train arrived in the very early morning. Three sets of twins were found. They were taken to the experimental block. Dr. Mengele ordered the two Hungarian twins be placed in the examination room. The two Hungarian twins young men age 18 were described as "extremely athletic and handsome." They had much body hair and were allowed to keep it for the first few weeks. The twins were showered and returned nude to the examination room. The examination started at the head . All parts of their heads were examined. The head examination took almost days. They were then completely X-rayed . The next part of the examination consisted of tubes being forced through their noses and into their lungs. They were then ventilated with a gas which caused them to cough so severely they had to be restrained. The sputum from the lungs was collected for examination.

    The twins were then photographed for several days . The purpose of the photographs were to show hair patterns. They were each forced to stand, bend, and kneel in many positions to accomplish the photographs. For example, they were required to stand with their arms lifted for many hours so the under arm hair could be photographed.

    After the photographs were finished they were awoken very early in the morning. They were taken into a room with tables and a hot water vat. The water in the vat was very hot. They were made to sit in the water until they were ready to pass out from the heat. They were then strapped to a table where their hair was plucked out trying to save the hair root. They were put back into the hot vat several times. After enough hair was collected, they were totally shaven of every hair on their body. The twins were then again extensively photographed without hair.

    The twins then received several two liter enemas which caused them much pain and discomfort. The boys on different days were strapped over a bench table and their rectums were hyper descended after which they received an extensive lower gastric intestinal examination. This extensive procedure was performed without any anesthesia. The young men were crying so loud that Doctor Mengele ordered they be gagged. The next day they received a painful and humiliating urological examination. In this examination tissue samples were taken from the kidneys, prostate, and testicles. Several semen samples were forcefully taken over two days.

    After this three weeks of tortuous medical examinations they were taken two the dissection laboratory. Using two doctors, each twin was simultaneously given an injection in the heart, taking their lives. They were dissected and their organs were sent to the Institute of Biological Racial and Evolutionary Research Berlin.

  104. I won't be satisfied until I get some Randall/ALTF.

    ReplyDelete
  105. ALTF couldn't sleep. Her mind was spinning, as it always does, with new ideas for her up and coming dildo business, Cunt Buddies.

    She looked at the digital clock. 2:34. She pulled herself to her feet to get a snack.

    In the light of the refrigerator, she caught a glimpse of a naked man standing in the corner. She jumped in fright, dropping her peanut butter and Flinstone chewable vitamin sandwich on the floor. By the miniscule size of his bare genitalia, she realized who it was.

    "Randall!" she exclaimed. She immediately rushed to him and dropped to her knees to serve his cock, arousing it to its full 2-inch erection. Her own special place literally dripping with excitement, she continued working his, alternating between sucking and squirting it with breast milk. He was in heaven.

    Randall tried to speak, but all he could manage to get out was "That reminds me of... you know... um... that movie... uh... where...." He never had a way with words, or girls either, for that matter. He suspected the only reason ALTF was into him was because she was secretly a man. But it was her right to keep her sex a secret. He had worked hard to protect that right.

    When he finally came, he squealed with excitement and his body throbbed uncontrollably for several minutes. ALTF just laid on the floor in a submissive position.

    When Randall finally recovered, he left without a word, as quickly and unexpectedly as he had arrived. ALFT was left alone, frustrated and aroused. He had not reciprocated. Randall Munroe never reciprocated.

  106. Randall pulled up a chair. It was the only thing he'd ever pulled. Apart from Megan's hair, but that was no longer possible since the cancer.

    He sat down. And when I say down, I mean relative to the earth. Randall was a NASA roboticist, so he had a unique scientific perspective of up and down.

    He turned on his computer. Not with a axe, but with MSPAINT.

    He drew furiously, and spluttered. He knew smoking was bad for him - he'd read all the abstracts on PubMed (oh! to get a place at college with a full subscription) - but his 101 Ways to Help Birds was clear that a lady always liked her man to come home with a worm in his mouth. That had to have been what it meant.

    Randall was very careful with words, you see. Almost too literal. He suffered from the most common psychological condition found online: idiocy.

    ALT-F fidgeted with the pointed ears of her latex mask as she looked down on the young roboticist, whose head was buried between her legs.

    "Yin's always been a good lapdog, innit?" she said, chuckling to herself.

    Randall continued tonguing his way through the cheesy white secretions in the folds of her labia, his fingers gently caressing her protruding uterus. He would take his time, as he always tried to, so he could savour every moment of this beautiful experience.

    But, as always, his impatient mistress clamped her thighs together and began grinding herself against his helpless face.

    "Maybe you should get to the nub of the matter?" she said. As if in affirmation, her primordial, prehensile clitoris began writhing furiously over his nose, his lips, his eyes. ALT-F always claimed she had no control over it, but Randall had his doubts. He opened his mouth to let the wriggling tendril in.

    "Cunt vincit omnia, eh?" giggled ALT-F. Randall began sucking, and before long she was arching her back in shuddering delight. She released the gasping nerd from the vice of her thighs, and looked down to inspect his handiwork.

    They both saw it together - the small piece of fungal growth, peeking cheekily from her folds.

    "Ya missed a bit, ya cunt!" said ALT-F. Randall sighed, and turned away in shame and failure. As easy as it would be to finish the job, he wasn't allowed to.

    He didn't get do-overs.
