Hulk MMO Cartoon


Religious debates are always fun!





Tragically, my favorite cartoon is too old to be on the interwebs.

It's from Datamation. (Remember Datamation?) A man is sitting at a desk. There are bits of electronics everywhere. Rubble is strewn into every corner of the room. His face and hair are singed.

He is thinking "It's never done that before."




Estimation

XKCD hits the button every time.

I didn't see this one which is one of my favorite xkcd :

Donald Knuth

(His books were kinda intimidating; rappelling down through his skylight seemed like the best option.)


I like this one: http://xkcd.com/149/

(Proper User Policy apparently means Simon Says.)



I can't believe 6 pages of answers and no one mentions the banana jr 6000. How quickly we forget.

http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/3108/bananaadgz4.gif

The other one I love and couldn't find the image for has the punchline "Failure Mr. Jones, is hardly original. Now sit down."

Also from the Bloom County strip.

Signs your coders don't have enough work to do


There's a Russian version of Bash.org at Bash.org.ru. What they do now is they take favorite quotes and turn them into cartoons or comic strips. Here's one of my favorite ones: Tester http://s.bash.org.ru/img/67c5y2emi7vwmrnd263759.jpg

  1. We've got a clever tester now -What do you mean?

  2. He's found bunch of stuff... A funny symbol there, a weird key combination here. He's real good

  3. But sometimes... I really want to smash his face

Link to site: http://bash.org.ru/comics/20080111


My all time favorite is probably xkcd's "Sudo make me a sandwich" comic, but there are SO MANY good webcomics out there that I thought I'd throw some others out for fun:

A co-worker pointed me to Sticks and Stones, which just got started pretty recently. It's sort of an xkcd ripoff, but there's some good stuff in there. alt text http://www.arcanology.net/sticksandstones/comics/comic-10.gif

Hackles is frequently about programming. This one's probably my favorite: Hackles, by Drake Emko & Jen Brodzik http://hackles.org/strips/cartoon334.png It's not quite a programming comic, but I also really dug this strip from Full Frontal Nerdery:

This has made my year.

Some engineer out there has solved P=NP and it's locked up in an electric eggbeater calibration routine.  For every 0x5f375a86 we learn about, there are thousands we never see.

Terms and Conditions cartoon from brainstuck.com

https://brainstuck.com/2008/08/08/t-c/

I'm guessing that this would probably never happen, as agreeing to the terms and conditions is more important than actually reading them (from the software publisher perspective).

Ten reasons you know you're living in 2009

  1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.
  2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.
  3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.
  4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.
  5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.
  6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home.
  7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.
  8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.
  9. You get up in the morning and go online before getting your coffee.
  10. You're reading this and nodding and laughing. :)

My all time favorite is probably xkcd's "Sudo make me a sandwich" comic, but there are SO MANY good webcomics out there that I thought I'd throw some others out for fun:

A co-worker pointed me to Sticks and Stones, which just got started pretty recently. It's sort of an xkcd ripoff, but there's some good stuff in there. alt text http://www.arcanology.net/sticksandstones/comics/comic-10.gif

Hackles is frequently about programming. This one's probably my favorite: Hackles, by Drake Emko & Jen Brodzik http://hackles.org/strips/cartoon334.png It's not quite a programming comic, but I also really dug this strip from Full Frontal Nerdery:

Full Frontal Nerdity by Aaron Williams http://nodwick.humor.gamespy.com/ffn/strips/2008-03-12.jpg


This has made my year.

Some engineer out there has solved P=NP and it's locked up in an electric eggbeater calibration routine.  For every 0x5f375a86 we learn about, there are thousands we never see.

I didn't see this one which is one of my favorite xkcd :

Donald Knuth

(His books were kinda intimidating; rappelling down through his skylight seemed like the best option.)

Dilbert is the top favorite, but I've also really enjoyed the xkcd comics the last couple years. I've got a couple of those posted up in my cube... I try really hard to live by this one.

I've got a war to fight!.



Ten reasons you know you're living in 2009

  1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.
  2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.
  3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.
  4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.
  5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.
  6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home.
  7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.
  8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.
  9. You get up in the morning and go online before getting your coffee.
  10. You're reading this and nodding and laughing. :)

I can't believe 6 pages of answers and no one mentions the banana jr 6000. How quickly we forget.

The other one I love and couldn't find the image for has the punchline "Failure Mr. Jones, is hardly original. Now sit down."

Also from the Bloom County strip.

Terms and Conditions cartoon from brainstuck.com

https://brainstuck.com/2008/08/08/t-c/

I'm guessing that this would probably never happen, as agreeing to the terms and conditions is more important than actually reading them (from the software publisher perspective).

Tragically, my favorite cartoon is too old to be on the interwebs.

It's from Datamation. (Remember Datamation?) A man is sitting at a desk. There are bits of electronics everywhere. Rubble is strewn into every corner of the room. His face and hair are singed.

He is thinking "It's never done that before."
