  1. Of course Linus is monogamous; his wife was the female karate champ of Finland, six times.
    There are some people you don’t want to piss off.

  2. Holy fuck! That picture of ESR’s head is scary! It looks like a, well like a shrunken preserved by head-hunters or something!

  3. Yes, I know.

    Eric has so helped me finally overcome my natural unsexiness and replace it with fake imagery of undeserved confidence and sexiness, just like him. And the floozies love it, just as one of the comments said:

    Cathy: “Actually, some of those women probably are stupid. If they were more intelligent or more sophisticated, they would see past the pheromonal facade created by misplaced self-confidence more often.”

    As of personal experience, let me also add: And once they found out what a great dork you really are, they will still try to act like you were cool just so they don’t have to admit to themselves and others how stupid they are themselves. They’ll do almost _anything_ to make that point. Even leave sexist remarks in the most sexist documents written by you.

    But then I fear Eric found that out before me. ;)

  4. Yes, exactly. He has helped me overcome my natural unsexiness and replace it by unwarranted and fake imagery of self-confidence and sexiness — just like him. Now I get all the cheap floozies, it is fantastic.

    And the best part of it: Once they realise what an idiot they were in letting you pick them up, they will do almost anything to make the point to themselves and others that you truly are cool. That way they won’t have to admit how stupid they were. Amazing. They will even play the game of “say it first so noone can say it about you”.

    But then, I guess Eric knew that already:

    Cathy: “Actually, some of those women probably are stupid. If they were more intelligent or more sophisticated, they would see past the pheromonal facade created by misplaced self-confidence more often.”

  5. This would have to be sometime between 1983 (introduction of The Brick) and 1990 (MIT PDP-10’s go down). I think DTMF phones were already fairly common by then, but only yuppies had cellphones. No way RMS would have been using one!

  6. Must have my comic! How dare you get us addicted and then swipe it away from us! I will hunt you down and make you make the comic…

    Ok well i’m really too lazy to do that, but i could send annoying emails and comments.

    Please i NEED MY FIX!

  7. Well it’s now officially past “(late) [on] Tuesday”. The second one in a row. Have you contracted the Men In Hats fugue? Most artists would have switched to the “guest comics” backup plan by now.
