A place for myself to post the comics storyline in prose form, plus a current comic discussion and most likely some random threads.

Stephen Hawking wrote:I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.

Marcus Aurelius wrote:Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.

Had to add that one, since I just got done posting a "Katie" picture to my DeviantArt page. I love that weird little fuzzball.

And I find that my head's nodding yes
Though my legs are not following
I'm inspired by events
To remember the exits in back of me
-- TMBG, I'm Impressed

I don't know if the line breaks are completely right, but those are the words.
