Awesome comic. About 10 years ago me and a friend were doing a summer internship in Northern Wisconsin that required driving around and camping wherever we could. We went through Spooner a lot and camped nearby one night, but afterward my friend refused to camp there again because she'd heard there had been a horrible murder in the town years before and she was extremely creeped out. I tried to tell her it was irrational when it had been so long ago but she claimed she had a weird feeling about the place and wouldn't go back. I never heard the full story before I read this, and it is pretty creepy. Thanks!

I believe Mitt Romney once said Modern Family was his favorite TV show. These assholes love being entertained by queers but are happy to fuck us over in real life.

Um Dan I think you mean geocentrism. Heliocentrism is the one that's true.

"[Religion] appeared at around the time agriculture revolutionized human social relations."
Except hunter-gatherers have religion too. Religion became more about control at that point, but it obviously existed before that. Human beings have always been superstitious.

I notice that NOM lauds DOMA as having been passed by our duly elected representatives...but when a state legislature passes marriage equality, it's the legislature imposing its views on the state, not the will of the people.

@10, so as a gold star lesbian, I'm a technical virgin? Please.

Maybe the definition of virginity is arbitrary, but it has to at least be logically consistent.

@15 I visited HRC a few months ago and it seemed pretty fancy to me. Not any fancier than other large nonprofits in DC, but much nicer than my tiny nonprofit's office.
Oct 13, 2011 julia in dc commented on The End of the Footnote?.
Obviously they should always be hyperlinked. I'm reading Sex at Dawn on the kindle right now (free from the library) and it has both footnotes and endnotes, all hyperlinked. The footnotes are slower to get to, since you have to cursor to the spot and then click, compared to a paper book where you just glance down. But the endnotes are faster than in a paper book, because you don't have to dig through the back. Overall it's a pretty good solution. But it would be better if they could make the footnotes show up on the bottom of the screen so you don't have to click through.
Sep 20, 2011 julia in dc commented on Another Argument for the Oxford Comma.
Arguably, adding an Oxford comma there could look like the demigod part is an appositive describing Mandela, so it's still ambiguous. I prefer Oxford commas, though. As I understand it, the only reason to drop them is to save space, which is why most newspapers don't use them.
