You are Insane. I am SO Glad.
This is beautiful.
You're such an ass.That's why I love you.
EPIC! I had a huge laugh at this.
Are you eyeballin' me? Get your ball , out of my eye AND GIVE TWENTY ! ... (fives and ones, will be fine)
You even included the full hand point, which takes like, seconds, if not minutes, to master! (It's part of the final test at drill sergeant school.)
If I find one of my users giving themselves the username INCORRECT I'm gonna know:
a) they are basic instructions fans and
b) what their password is.
bwahahaahha!! I almost sprayed a mouthful of hot chocolate on my screen! Awesome stuff!!

Another amazing laugh! I wouldn't be surprised if suddenly there's a rash of identity thefts. All from people with the username INCORRECT who mysteriously also all had the same password.
I'm impressed that he even got the little hand gesture down in the first panel. Although I was never told I was "incorrect" at basic, just "WRONG. YOU ARE WRONG."
HMMMM...I'm now left wondering if my basic training experience wasn't nearly as abusive as all this points to because I bribed my CC with homemade german chocolate cake from my mom, or because it was Navy basic rather than Marines or Army (Air Force basic? that even makes squids laugh).
I see a series coming on. Include the MHB in this. This feels like life at the office, too.
This is so funny. I soon shall cow all to my demand and make lessons more memorable in the process.
As a reader of "The God Delusion" I am deeply ashamed to admit that I am leaving a comment because I didn't want Scott to have 13 comments any longer :-(
Awesome... words... cannot find... should have sent... a drill sargeant.
As someone who...
...has had a...
..."23" tattoo 15...
...years longer than...
...the movie has...
...existed, I felt the...
...niggling urge to extrapolate.
no offense, constructive criticism: I feel this to be a bit contrived. Going over the top needs a solid base. Mostly your characters do, think or seem to feel something I can relate to, at least vaguely--this, however, is more verbal slapstick than screwball.
Besides, as a programmer, bad passwords put me off. The half-bearded bozo seems to have a hunch going in the right direction.
As a programmer, why don't you sit down and have a nice, hot cup of shut the fuck up? Who cares if you can relate to it in whatever form you want to take? Go read Dilbert and marvel at how much Scott Adams seems to be inside your head.
Hey, keep it nice now. No reason to get rude here. Who cares if this guy wants to explain his mindless drabble pouring from from his computer keyboard. Remember opinions are like assholes, everyone has one.So strike that line chatter grunt. Do you understand me? I CANT HEAR YOU BOY. I SAID DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME? that's better.
meh, what else would one expect from Deutschland? stunted sense of humor and anal-retentive sense of over-analyzation...but then what else would one expect from a bunch of Americans? knee-jerk retorts and foul language..."we will all go down together..."
That was my "nice".
Folks, Scott might not be in dire need of juvenile fanboys who tell him how great BI is. If it was daft, I wouldn't have bothered to comment, see?
> from DeutschlandYes, I suspected an umlaut related rage. Sorry for WWII. Shouldn't have really, but sometimes you just get up on the wrong side of bed, you know? Won't start it again, though, I promise. While I certainly wouldn't enjoy getting nuked, it's the prospect of being foulmouthed by this world's pubescent prime afterwards, that gives me the willies.
> anal, asshole, fuckBehold the wit, the cadence, and the beauteous minds from which this emanates. You guys put me to shame.
> we will all go down togetherNo, *we* will, you won't. How could a land that has such men?

so if the password was 3Y3b4Ll would that make this comic programmer-worthy?

Ryan speaks of a "stupid" company with an equally stupid website. *That's* the hunch of his going in the right direction, as websites badly protected are prone to abuse. Possibly neither Scott, his alter ego (that's the bald one in the comic, not the guy who draws him, see?), nor Ryan thought of that, and it doesn't matter much. It just occurred to me that Ryan was right in more than one way, which I found at least more interesting than to write of an "amazing" or "awesome" comic for the umpteenth time. Nothing wrong with that, just no my cup of tea.
Ok, maybe there's something wrong with it, but it won't earn you a court order or misdemeanor charges, so it's about ok. You guys and dolls are seriously criticism-impaired. Maybe you qualify for an supplemental security income program as specified by the social security act. Lemons, lemonade--get it?
btw: seven character passwords without special chars suck quite a bit.
I am thinking of changing all of my passwords to GIFTGAS. God, that's unnecessary, isn't it?
> God, that’s unnecessary, isn’t it?Eight letters, all caps? No, that's daft. I'm having problems communicating the concept. My bad.
> GIFTGASDammit, I forgot to excuse myself for WWI, too. Bouts of forgetfulness ever since I tripped over that mine in 1916. Blame the Brits.
Seven letters, actually, as before. My didactic ineptitude is worse than expected. Such wonderful human material at hand, and such a failure. However: giving up is un-american. As we will actually go down a bit earlier than you bunch, I just might be your next neighbour in a not so distant future. Neighbor, sorry--damn continental Nazi, me. So, I better adapt as soon I can. I wonder how we will get along. Anyway, I speak Spanish, too, so I might get along with your other neighbours better than you, at least. If that's any consolation. To me.
Panel 3... KILLED ME.His expression was too perfect.
He *is* in a world of sh&t. I'm so sorry I had to do that.
When I was in boot camp, my drill instructor once demanded to know if I was "skylarking." To this day, I haven't the slightest clue what that means.
