Sorry, but we've got too many reports of time travelers coming through and spoiling the result of the fight. I'm afraid we just can't take any wagers under those conditions.

On the plus side though we still have lots of other things for you to enjoy here tonight. Action figures, candy, drinks, hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, posters, sweaters, T-shirts, those giant foam hands that make you look like an idiot, we've got it all. Come on, make sure to get everything you need before the big fight starts!

And here I was going to put my money on "The Goo slaughters them both and becomes the new star of the comic." I mean, really, it's called El Goonish Shive for a reason.

Complete with robot body?
The book is almost always better than the movie. You could have no better case in point than FROM HELL, Alan Moore's best graphic novel to date, brilliantly illustrated by Eddie Campbell. It's hard to describe just how much better the book is. It's like, "If the movie was an episode of Battlestar Galactica with a guest appearance by the Smurfs and everyone spoke Dutch, the graphic novel is Citizen Kane with added sex scenes and music by your favourite ten bands and everyone in the world you ever hated dies at the end." That's how much better it is. - Warren Ellis.

These big matches always seem to end with a third party getting involved, usually with a folding chair...

Does Elliot remind anyone else of Wile E. Coyote?
MARTIN: What?
DANIEL: Okay. One, that's Star Trek; and two, it's ridiculous.
MARTIN: What's wrong with it?
CARTER: "The singularity is about to explode?"
MARTIN: Yes.
CARTER: Everything about that statement is wrong.
DANIEL: How exactly is having weapons at maximum going to help the situation?
MARTIN: The audience isn't going to know the difference. They love: "weapons at maximum."
MITCHELL: Never underestimate your audience. They're generally sensitive, intelligent people who respond positively to quality entertainment.
TEAL’C: I do not understand why everything in this script must inevitably explode.
MARTIN: Look, you guys may all know how things really work out there in the galaxy, but I know the film business. Explosions make great trailers. Simple fact. More explosions, better trailer. Better trailer, more viewers.


I have discovered that Death Note + Lucky Star = awsome.
Here's more proof.

==Spring, 2006==

Chronos: I supoose it was good to know things were delayed back when the comic came out, but now this is just a waste of a "click" and page-loading time...

==September, 2008==

Crystal:

Not that I don't find the strip amusing.

Incidentally, while I find nothing immoral about gambling, I avoid it, as it's too risky without knowledge of the future (and using knowledge of the future would be cheating).

(Not that it isn't tempting, given how desperately low on money I am...)
