My favorite panel is indeed the terminator one (panels 3) Thought the boss guy kinda scares me a bit. Great job though!

I would honestly buy a T-shirt with panel 3 on it...yes, that'd be very nice....

Whoa! First person all of a sudden! That was a shock. *whew* over now... can go back to whatever entirely unimportant thing I was doing before my paradigm was so startlingly jarred.

Who's the woman in panel one? I know she was once vaguely attracted to Rick before he ruined it by asking if she was or wan't, but was she ever introduced?

She looks like a Claire.

I find it perplexing that in all the discussion over placed/misplaced commas, the commenting population has completely avoided the inherent time confusion in panel 3 with the "TIME 'TIL I GO HOME" listed as "3:43:27:69". Is this meant to infer 3 days?? The 43 hours would seem to contradict. Therefore, the most logical interpretation is hh:mm:ss:subseconds? The seconds field would instead require a decimal point to separate whole seconds from hundredths. The proper format would *obviously* yield "3:43:27.69" with a decimal instead of the colon. (rolls eyes) Sheesh! Can't we get some punctuation review into the approval process??!? (Sighs) Seriously, though, I love BI.

I love this one so much that I posted a blown up print out of this comic in my class room. I teach English.

@Zeitgeist I was wondering why it was 69 seconds instead of 59 or less, your idea makes sense.
