No problem jwhouk, my usual rule of thumb for me Posting a new WCT Thread is that if there isn't one up by 09:00 - 10:00 my time (or later) on Monday when I get in, I'll throw one up.

Yelling Bird's Initial Pubic Offering is much like Facebook's IPO. Shoots up quickly, falls back down, eventually comes back again.

It also leaves a bad taste in your mouth, leaves everyone unsatisfied, and costs more than it is worth...

When he's not stuffing Christmas ornaments in there that is.

Penelope will be the only one on duty at CoD when Pizza Girl arrives. Faye remains steadfastly unconvinced.

I was going to correct it the rest of the way, but I wasn't sure if it would be too offensive.    That's the last thing I want... no telling how many "professional sex industry workers"  read QC and would be offended by this.    Be my luck that they all come out and quote MY post as being offensive.     That's the way my luck runs lately.   :D

But the description they gave for the units of nerdiness does not describe a logarithmic system of units, Marten. You can, of course, define such a unit, i.e. the decibel of nerdiness,
dBn = 10 log_10 (N) ,
where N is the nerdiness in Nerd units. So, for example, Dale and Marigold, being kilo-nerds, would have a logarithmic nerdiness of 30 dBn.

Aiming for at least a 70 dBn post here...  :psyduck:

edit -- didn't read Jeph's blog post under the comic. I fail at nerding, apparently.

That was also perilously close to taunting Hanners about her lack of a romantic life. BAD Pugnacious Peach. NO Pugnacious Peach biscuit.

Oh yeah, the line about action was definitely aimed at Marten.

I'm more curious as to how nerdiness calculations would be more like quantum mechanics. Are there nerd wave functions where everyone has a certain chance of being at some level of nerdiness but then you come out with a Lord of the Rings or Avengers or Internet and everyone collapses into a big nationwide state which is made up of a certain amount of other states which can make the new wave functions for individuals or...

idk

Whether Faye's last remark is addressed at Marten or Hannelore, she is only half right. Both are nerds in their respective fields, but the first half of the characterisation fits neither of them.

I'm sorry, did anyone think, at any point in this strip, that any major character (except Sara, Amanda, Scott, Padma, Greg, Cosette, or the non-Veronica parents) was not a nerd?

 I'm thinking Marten's going to hook up with someone soon or he and Faye will both be single when Angus gets the job and moves to the big city.

Oy, fuck off, Faye. That looked dangerously close to using it as a pejorative.

A woman who makes dinosaur art projects and goes to work to poop in private has no business calling anyone else a nerd in a derogatory manner.

That was a rare moment where Faye actually annoyed me.

Rare?

Confusing bitchiness for wit is one of her consistent character traits.

Wow, I didn't even catch this possible meaning at first.  So do fucking nerds do things (pun intended) like memorize half of Urban Dictionary, or know exactly who every extra in every porno is?

And the same applies to Marten. That was the point I was trying to make above.

I did not think of that meaning at all. I understood it as Hannelore not, to use Faye's terminology, gettin' any action.

But your interpretation is interesting. It raises the question: what do mega-nerds do? Obsess over the terminology of "mega"? Play the Mega role playing game?

The famous thought-experiment Schr÷dinger's Nerd suggests that everybody is both a nerd and not a nerd at the same time in quantum superposition. The wave form collapses when you ask if it was the right move to leave Tom Bombadil and the barrow-wights out of the film based on Fellowship Of The Ring...
