    I've been sitting here in front of my PC for the past 6 hours, avoiding to go out and tend to the businesses of the day, doing exactly what this M&E strip depicts.

    I'm going out now!

    Good one, Nina! And you didn't even have to whine about IP to entertain.

    This was the absolute worst attempt at trolling I've ever had the displeasure of witnessing. You sir, need to turn in your troll card, then strangle yourself with your cordless mouse cable..

    I'm offended that you gave me such a high grade. Under no circumstances would I want you to find me or my statements appealing...

    You are the one that failed to grasp the depth of the comic strip. The Internet is all about IP: It's how packets get around. Duh!

    What is truly funny is that I made no comment on this strip at all.

    However, I will say that it reads like something a 1st grader would come up with, after watching a monkey grooming video on Sesame Street.

    As always, Nina goes for the lowest common denominator by just being herself!

    Re: Re: Re:

    When you say "the" truth, you really mean "your" truth right? Because if you mean anything else, you really should add some sources, studies, reproducible factual information of some sort..... but you don't have that do you? Because if you do, I would be very interested in reading it and debating it's merits with you...

    Re: Re: Re: Re:

    Nope, the truth. It is a kids mentality level cartoon, it isn't even barely amusing, and really isn't much about anything - so much so that most of the comments here are about ratings of ratings, and not the content itself.

    The truth is the truth, sucks but hey, it's true.

    grooming?

    Uh oh - using the words "grooming" and "internet" together likely gets us all on the FBI paedophile list ...

    Thanks Nina :/

    Re: Re: Re: Re: Re:

    It may seem like a child's cartoon, but there is an underlying meaning that you obviously don't see. Lots of child cartoons do it; Sponge Bob, Reboot, Futurama, Simpsons, others that I can't think of off the top of my head. Each on the surface seem like a child's plaything, but hold a deeper meaning that require a certain level of intelligence and maturity to understand.

    Those of us that can see it don't need to say anything, it's already been said. Those of us who can't, at this point probably never will and need to get off of the Internet and out of the way.

    You have my pity.

    Re: Re: Re:

    In case you didn't notice, you all comment as "Anonymous Coward" so it's rather hard to tell you apart. Despite your narcissism, you are not the only troll here.

    At least you have admitted here that you take pride in being a nuisance and even admit that what you do here is "trolling" - quite good of you to own up to your total lack of value

    Yes I do this

    I do this day in, and day out. I'm doing it right now. I constantly refresh my news feeds, my Facebook stalker feed, and occasionally my LinkedIn feed all looking for little tidbits of data. Something, anything to give me hope that things are getting better. That somewhere, someplace someone has figured out a plan to straighten things out again.

    The worse things get, the worse news I find, the more intense I search. There's got to be a way out of this mess the world is coming to. Now if I could just find it.
