    Very true...

    In the not-so-distant future you shall report you are sick, receive a calling number, and see the doctor two to three months after you report you are sick. If you die, you shall be in violation of the law, which shall require you first fill out a death request form...

    Yeah, it's just the nature of the world.

    The cool thing about this forum is I feel like, more than in real life, it's full of people trying to understand each other's points of view and their own as well.

    Still a good comic though. Such an important point to keep in mind.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    In what way is it the forum?

    In what way is that society?

    I mean is it a commentary on people being condemned by the same people whatever choices they make? Or is it a commentary on you cant please all of the people all of the time? Or that there's always someone on hand to provide unsolicited criticism? Or simply that you really ought to ignore people because they cant be pleased and will find something else to criticise you about if you try?

    Different people want different things. Sometimes the same people want the different thing the others wanted and back and forth and so on.

    As a species we have always possessed that nature. I mean it's a race of brilliant apes, (questioning the use of the word brilliant here of course), hurlting through space on a rock we are slowly trying to either kill or save...ironically from ourselves...or nature...or whatever; there will always be an X to cause X.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    I don't understand why he changed his yellow shirt in the first frame to a green one in the others.

    There is no logic in this place.
