Diachronic vendetta

I know what they say about the best revenge, but at this point, I'd be tempted to settle for merely adequate revenge.


Apophenia on the couch

I want to wish the happiest of birthdays to my best friend/spouse/favorite human. You make everything better, including these comics. Let's keep getting super old together.




Help: expanded edition

Great news for all you "CrustaceanSingles daily comic of 2019-11-17" fans: today, I'm re-releasing an expanded edition with one never before seen line of dialogue and a high-tech but tasteful background color gradient! Anyway, mutual aid is cool and you can count me in.


Laugh, and the world laughs with you

The title, by the way, comes from the poem Solitude by Ella Wheeler, although I picked it up through cultural osmosis before I ever read the poem.



I don't have an oppressor-to-oppressed dictionary handy, but I'm pretty sure this means roughly, "We are very scared now and we really hope it's not too late to appease you into stopping before we lose the power to oppress you."
So, uh, don't stop.


On being wrong

Being wrong can be a temporary condition, but only when we have the courage to ask ourselves hard questions.


The future we want

It's going to be better because we're going to make it better. We can't afford not to.
(This is what I'm going to start saying. I hope I won't have cause to say it to any of you.)



The crocodile tears are coming, and we have to disregard them. People chose to join their municipal Junior Fascist LARP teams, they chose to treat civilians as enemy insurgents, and they expected to face zero consequences. Wage theft continues to vastly outnumber all other forms of robbery and theft in the USA, and corporations expect to face zero consequences. I could go on. Ignore the crocodile tears to come. Hold these people accountable and never let it happen again.

Deathbot factory

They're programmed to fear and hate, not protect and serve. And they're very, very profitable.


Stick and carrot

It's foolish and short-sighted, of course, but the authoritarians who use it can hardly be accused of coherency, decency, or any other virtue.
We can't afford to let them keep hitting, and we can't afford to forget how they act while they hold the stick OR the carrot.
