I am just kind of disgusted that I had to see a webcomic as bad as XKCD today, and even more offended that now it might seem like I actually navigated to that stupid fucking strip on purpose.

I read xkcd every time it updates.  With this joke, it just reminded me why I don't read this comic.  :roll:  Why couldn't the xkcd site link us to the dinosaur comic instead?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure XKCD, QC, and DC are three of the most awesome comics evar. <3

The sad thing is I didn't even notice the change! I opened all three up at the same time and read them before I checked the URL.

Hilariousness!

I've been shamelessly procrastinating the creation of an account on the QC-forums (and the xkcd-onces for that matter) for so long. I guess what I mean to say is that I'm at a loss of words for how brilliant this is, that three ingenious webcomics, of which two I actually frequent (and I don't frequent that many comics) do this... Dagnabbit, did I already say I was at a loss of words for this?

And here I was actually suspecting some malicious script for a couple of seconds, clicking my xkcd.com-link after having checked out questionablecontent.net and having found something I just passed off as a funny gesture by Jeph. (However, a spark in my mind did actually say something along the lines of "hey wtf, QC isn't the raptor-fearing one, xkcd is!")

I guess it just stands to prove agirlandherfed's Otter when she mentioned something about six degrees of webcomic separation (back when I started reading her strip after having seen her guest strip here).

And now I will stop this barrage of unnecessarily long rambling sentences and enjoy the notion of a world making just a little more sense after this. :)

It never happened to me, why'd it not happen to me?

i go to http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1 and then press latest or update the number to the latest one of i know what it is hehe.. maybe thats why.

because everyone who reads it is pathetic and disgusting and worthy of the hate of you and the people who browse your browsing history and/or tap your connections to servers and judge your competence based on those connevtions?  W H I T ?
opinions people.

For me, there are many good xkcd's and many bad xkcd's, so i must read all to know.
QC is different in that there are more grey areas and that all will be read to completion.. Although i love it when xkcd continues and old chain like 'e ol raptor survival

I logged on to get my thrice-weekly dose of the XKCD, and I found myself here on April 1.

... and then I found myself three days later having read every single comic on this site. Not the same as XKCD, but altogether a rather addictive and charming comic. Many kudos to the author. And to the maker of XKCD, who led me to this site.
