Oops (delayed post)

In today’s comic, I have the rain-stick thing happening in Jaynestown, when it actually happens in Our Mrs. Reynolds.  I lose three nerd points.

When writing the comic, I actually compiled a list of references to wood in Firefly by searching the scripts. They included Badger serving Jayne wood alcohol and Inara likening Mal’s sword technique to ‘chopping wood’ (both in Shindig). I should put it on Wikipedia so nobody has to duplicate my efforts.

Note: I actually wrote this post from the road early this morning to try to stave off the subsequent flood of email, but in my sleepiness I accidentally published it as a “page” instead of a “post” (a WordPress distinction that’s confused me before). So, all told, this was not a good day for my internet skills.  I think I’ve dropped from 1337 to 1334, maybe 1335 tops.

  1. @Dalin: It wasn’t the trollistic remark that was payback. It was the “A Softer World” comic being a parody of XKCD that was payback. It even says so on their site. :) It made me happy.

    @John: You’re a meanface.

    @Randall Munroe: When do we get a new blag to post comments in? This one is getting huge… And I seriously have to try the reversed Bel-Air sometime. It makes all other lame breakups seem puny in comparison.

  2. @Xanado- ! You’ve just made my week. Ya know, should Randall have updated the blag with his Comic-con 2008 escapades, I’d also be responsible for the first “XKCD cosplay” result in google. I know I’ve said it before, it just amazes me that such an irelevant mind as mine came up with the idea and decided to execute it when there are such brilliant (seen in this post’s comments section alone) XKCD devotees out there. Also, I will never, ever cease to be proud of that day

  3. Sifting through the amusing dross, I’m left wondering about the batch of comments regarding long distance relationships.

    Nobody can predict what circumstances produce long-distance relationships.

    What works in all relationships, long distance or otherwise, is communication. If you can’t communicate then you’re doomed no matter how often distance goes negative.

    If you can communicate, then great. That’s when you explore whether things are working or not and whether the current storm, irrelevant of distance, can be weathered.

    Cheers,
