Chaos Butterfly and "Zen Zap!" are awesome. Panel 4 just kinda wrecks the whole thing.

It's in hindi style, trademark upperline.


its called sanskrit , I believe.


Close, sanskrit is to modern hindi what latin is to italian.

But you're right, Bod should speak sanskrit...Tat, whatever he feels like Smile

I was thinking sanskrit and wrote arabic instead. Hadn't had my coffee, I guess.

But the writing is actually Devanagri

But, does it matter?

Wait, it doesn't?

Oh right, it doesn't fucking matter.

You realize that with your every word you manage to degrade any esteem anyone here has for you, right?

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?

If my every word degrades any esteem people have for me, then how can there be any esteem to degrade?

I'm simply pointing out the utter futility of arguing over whether it was sanskrit or not. It has no barring whatsoever on the meaning of the cartoon, its just you kids over analyzing things as usual.

Too many times have I come into a thread to find a two page argument about the stupidest, smallest little detail because someone felt the need to flex their mental muscles and tear someone else down. Its pathetic, and particularly nerdy, nerdy in the worst kind of way.

Are you being vindictive because I'm nailing you where it hurts? I mean, you're probably one of the worst for bitching about nothing.

How was it even an argument?
Vox Raucus commented on something in the comic, then Sam, Pixi-san and Mizike commened on that. That's kind of what we do here in this part of the forum, isn't it? You're the one who's turning it into an arguement.
Personally, I had no idea that writing style was called Devanagri. I'm glad to have learned something today.

That happens so rarely...


edit: Or am I wrong? I don't know you all very well. Is Mizike in the habit of tearing people down with his towering intellect?

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.

Plenty of people have no esteem for you already, I'm sure. But I imagine that many also skip whatever you tend to write.

You are a petty little philistine. I suppose it may be because you have nothing meaningful to contribute, but all that you post is insulting to the people who have the tenacity to actually discuss the comic in its intended forum. You act as if you are the ultimate authority on the subject of the comic, and of discussion itself.

Get used to arguments. Without them, the threads would be tiny fragments of pointless comments, without clarification or value. Not to mention that in this particular case, there is no argument - people were clarifying what the unusual text was. But upon your white horse, you rode in to challenge this evil, by posting a pointless - and boring - commentary on commentary. You think that there should be less posting? Consider your own!

But more amusing is your talk about our need to 'tear someone else down', while you post blunt and insulting responses to innocent discussion in an attempt to stop it. And to top yourself off, you call it 'pathetic' and 'nerdy'. You may have never advanced beyond middle school, but some of the remaining members of the forum view knowledge as a virtue.

The hypocrisy you display is amazing, and the ignorance contemptible. If you wish to bitch about nothing, I suggest you find another forum.

You weren't being attacked for stating an opinion, you were being attacked for being a dick.
And you were being attacked by Secret. I know I'm still a newbie, but I've been reading for long enough to know what he's like.
Now we're having an arguement!
