That wasn't very nice of me, was it? And Secret was the first person here to say hello to me. Sorry, Secret.

Why do you assume the branch in the second panel is the same one that's in the first? Just look at them--they're clearly not the same.

It goes from a closeup to a medium shot - how can you tell?


The pattern in the closeup isn't seen in the second panel--neither group of leaves matches it entirely.

That means that he's leaping down from a higher branch.

I thought it seemed amazingly superfluous, and so I'm being attacked for stating that opinion.

It also looked to me like the beginnings of an argument, it doesn't take much to start a real rager in here.


Whatever grumpy pills you're taking, I'd advise to stop.


Why don't you pick on Him over any obscure soviet canon?. I'm sure you two would be happy as clam together. We can even ask Tat for your own special subforum if you want


And didn't know about devanagri, I learned something today.

i really love the second panel - that "yaaaa" reminds me of


(which in turn reminds me of a lot of forum arguments)

I understand where you were coming from, Brain.Damage, but next time you might want to try a different tactic.

Everybody else, he was just trying to diffuse a situation that he thought was bordering on a nitpicking argument. Knowing that his intentions were good, it might be better to forgive his language and get back to the comic.

That said, yay for happy good discussion of work arts! The insect is nice and Buddha = molto bene!

(Also, for clarification - everyone here agrees that the pursuit of knowledge is honorable. I believe what Brain.Damage was trying to say is that standing in line and having a pissing contest over who knows more is pathetic and nerdy in the worst way. I can't say I disagree with him, but I also can't say that's what was happening here.)

Ah, that makes sense. As in, "de-fuse," like taking the fuse off of a bomb. A little more effective than "to spread or scatter." xD Thanks!

Then shrug it off anyway. It's not really healthy to focus on stuff that irks you for too long, and it's certainly not the path to a happier life. <3

So how 'bout that new strip? See ya over there.
