Don't worry, Beartato. As long as I never wear socks, I am functionally immortal.
Hit random, post gems.
All I have are cropped panels for reaction images.
The last panel is from the POV of Harrison's coma
Why did I ask for my drink in a dribble glass??
This is definitely one of my favorites.
There's so many that are as good as this one, Nedroid is by far the best comic for consistency.
Anyone got the one where Harrison finds a guy who looks exactly like Beartato underground?
"But Reginald doesn't wear socks," someone said.
不出热水, which is roughly "No go hot water", " don't go hot water" or "no hot water". Basically nonsense.
The other joke he made with Chinese though, made sense either by coincidence or deliberately.
Which Ned comic do you relate to the most?
I mean besides the embarassing memories one, we all know that feel
I swear, I have terrifying moments of existential dread about shit like this all the time. Thinking about space is fucking horrifying.
This is one of my favorites.
This one. Pronounced kǒng, it means "fear" or "dread", and can fit in the strip, intentional or not.
>that one gif where it shows you earth relative to other planets, then the sun, then bigger stars, then galaxies, then bigger galaxies, then the vast expanse of space
I don't know how I didn't kill myself.
Not about work, but I do have recurring dreams about going to back to college and realizing that it's the last month and I haven't been to any of my classes all semester. Those fucking suck.
>that image that shows you the scale of earth compared to the solar system, then the local interstellar neighborhood, then the galaxy, local galactic group, supercluster, local superclusters, observable universe, then
jesus outside the observable universe saying "don't masturbate
What SHOULD be freaking you out is solar storms/flares.
A bad one of them could fry all the electronics on earth like the strongest EMP you can fathom.
And that doesn't mean no internet. It means food production is fucked. It means everything is fucked. It would be a return to the dark ages, and you'd probably die.
And it could easily happen.
Yeah, but at least some people could survive. What about a fucking gamma ray burst? We'd never even know it was coming. Just one minute everything on the entire planet would die of enormous fucking radiation poisoning.
Fuck me, I need to drink myself unconscious, I'm not going to sleep otherwise.
Jesus people here freak out about the stupidest things. The universe is unfathomably huge and you've got absolutely zero power over it or the power it contains - same goes for literally everything else in our solar system, so make your peace with it and live your life like everyone else. The only disappointment to be found in it is knowing you'll live your entire life without being able to experience any of what else is out there.
The apocalypse is probably worse than a sudden death. You'd never know. Like being aborted.
There's more disappointments than that. Ask your parents about what they envisioned for your future.
Really? I think the vastness of space is pretty fucking neat. I'm not really bothered by the fact that we're minuscule and insignificant in comparison. The only thing I don't like about it is that we'll never (within a reasonable amount of time and without ftl travel) get to explore any planets beyond our solar system. The closet star to us is over 4 light years away (37,840,000,000,000 km), going at 17 km/s , it would still take us over 70,000 years to get there.
The problem is the size. Enormous things make uncomfortable.
Insert obvious penis joke hereMostly because of envisioning the scale of it. It's hard to explain, but when I really contemplate the size of something huge - a mountain, an aircraft carrier, open pit mines, skyscrapers, etc. - I start thinking about everything involved. All the materials, all the resources, all the people, all the tectonic plate action, the time, everything. It sense me into a mental sensory-overload because I cannot process any of that on a meaningful level. And space? Space is fucking infinite. Every single big item on this planet that is uncomfortable to think about exists in an infinite number in the infinity of space. And that just makes me want to shut down.
The problem is that you're trying to assign a scale to something beyond any scope in the first place. Mountains, cities, chasms, etc. all have a definable and comparable scale, but if something is infinite what's the point of trying to pinpoint a single object inside it in the first place, be it a person, planet, star, or galaxy? Shutting down simply for acknowledging reality exists is a personal mental flaw if anything - you are not a mountain, a city, a solar system; why try to process the data behind them and assign it a personal value?
Probably because updates are sporadic. I interpret this to mean that the author genuinely refuses to print unfunny strips.
Also, the almost-childish drawing style is expressive, yet compliments the humor well.
Guys? I've had a thought. One that is going to cause a lot of anger, but I can't think of an explanation myself and I'm interested to know what other people think.
Why isn't Nedroid written off as lolrandumb? Let's face it, it is very random, and most of the humor comes from the absurdity of every strip. But that has never been a detriment. Why does it work so well with Nedroid, but it's usually a fatal crutch for most other things?
I never said it wasn't a flaw. It's like any other phobia. Why are people afraid of snakes? You can come up with an explanation that works, but usually only within a very flawed framework. Same thing with me.
It more or less comes from the execution of the idea.
And while it is made of random elements with recurring characters, it isn't as random as someone jutting in and saying something that is completely out of the field.
Because 'lolsorandom' involves introducing random and unrelated things into a situation, like screaming 'waffles' or some shit like that. A situation can be absurd without being a Nickelodeon tier sketch were people use 'pudding' as an expletive.
There are mediocre ones?
These are satisfying explanations.
I love that Nedroid is funny without relying on sex jokes and stuff like that. The innocence of the comic makes it really endearing.
I also love the background jokes.
This one's actually kinda mediocre
Everyone needs a little blob in their life.
That's not random you fucking clown.
Nedroid usually sets up something somewhat predictable and then defies your expectations at the end with something absurd. The humor comes from the juxtaposition of the normal with the unexpected, like that's literally the basis of comedy.
Bad comedy comes from when the punchline doesn't even relate to the joke at all. The situation doesn't unexpectedly lead somewhere different, it just ends with someone saying "MOOSE XD". It's like putting a panel from a completely different comic where the punchline was supposed to go.
I think it can sometimes help by allowing you to interpret the emotions yourself.
Such as in >>78230753 the ever so slight deformation of Reginald's eye in the last panel makes him look concerned, which fits really well with the joke. I have no idea of that blob was intentionally made that way, but it still works well.
You know, you actually CAN --and often do-- run out of WiFi.
Wireless routers issue "tickets" to devices every time they try to connect, but eventually they run out of these tickets and nothing can connect anymore. But simply restarting the router generates more.
This is why unplugging and plugging a router back in usually fixes whatever problem you're having.
Wait, seriously? That's why that works? Holy shit, I have never realized there was a real explanation for that. I just always assumed the router needed a reboot because some internal process got stuck in a loop.
I didn't mean to come off as 'no expressions' at all, just he lack of really seems to give it seems to add to it somehow. When the expressions do come into play, it works too. I really like it's mix rather than over the top expressions(which is also fine depending on it's execution).
>tfw alliterative name
Granted my last name's no "Farterburger," but having 3 W's in your first+last name sucks.
I don't know what it is, but Nedroid's cute yet very static/simple expressions make his stuff all the more funny.
Change "Becky" to
"Ms. Becky"and you pretty much got me to a T
Here's an appropriate one for the season.
I had a friend who suffered bronchitus when he was 17 while working at a local Mexican joint. They told him to take as much time off as he needed.
He showed up four years later and started working like nothing happened.
Does this count, knowing what it's parodying?
That one's my favorite
One of the many things I love about Nedroid is how Anthony does this thing where the first line is often self sufficient.
Sometimes it doesn't work, but most of the time it's incredible.
Harrison is a loose bet cannon.
Last one. I hope Nedroid one line becomes a thing.
Like once every 8-12 months I seem to go back and read a bunch of Nedroid, and I love it every time. I spent most of the day reading through Nedroid when I have a final in Friday, worth it though.
Oglaf. That's the one I know off. It's based on CAD from years ago. Just remove the final panel and cut all dialogue in the second panel. Panel length doesn't matter, just use those rules.
I think he's referring to taking away the punchline/context of the comic. Although I don't browse /v/ so I'm not entirely sure what, in particular, he's talking about. But what's being done to these nedroid comics seems having the first row contain a good enough punchline to be standalone.
It's just a general thing. Every time someone posts a webcomic, no matter how well it works as is, someone will think it's better with all the dialogue and half the panels removed. It doesn't matter if the dialogue is the punchline, or if the panels act as much needed establishing or beat panels.
I love the alt-text on this one.
What did you dooooo
Yeah, For some reason I have reoccurring dreams about remembering/finding something Ive forgotten/lost, for the first one, its usually like a class that i forgot i signed up for and forgot for weeks, for the other one, its just some object I look for and have lost for a while, like right now its my watch and I dreamed i found it on my bed, though i think its in a box somewhere
So has anybody been reading the comic that he does with KC Green. Back?
It's pretty good even if it updates at a glacial speed. I'm glad KC got him to do it. KC's art style is great for depressing existential monologues, awful for action.
Even though it's unexpected, it makes sense in context. You think that Rudy is going to be bad by shooting Reginold, but instead he's bad by breaking a favorite item of his. It has context and meaning. Kramer entering the comic and yelling "giddee up!" for example has no context and no meaning.
Well, since the 60s we had a technology that could get there in roughly 130 years. It's called nuclear pulse propulsion and is completely viable from an engineering stand point.
The fact of the matter is, it's just not really desirable to build a space probe propelled by throwing 300.000 hydrogen bombs behind it and riding the shockwave.
But I still have to pull open the door to get out, touch the locks to the stalls, etc. Plenty of places have manual flushing toilets but automatic sinks.
I'm thinking it might be so people don't just leave the water running or flood the sinks or some shit.
>I'm thinking it might be so people don't just leave the water running or flood the sinks or some shit.
It's mostly this. Hell, I've seen motion fucking paper dispensers in wash rooms who will only hand you one sheet per wave.
It just means the paper and water in the place where you run into one of these is too valuable for them to waste it on your whims.
>picked One Piece up recently
>only at Enies Lobby
WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME
I love this one
I think that as long as you enjoy yourself and you try your best not to hurt other creatures on the planet, you're doing a good job. The whole scale issue doesn't touch me at all. We're really insignificant and that's okay.
There's no bait and switch or making sense in context, it's just funny because it's unexpected in that context.
Precisely my point. "lolsoranbdom" is just an illiterate name for absurd humor. Faggots should stop being pretentious and pretending they understand why they don't like some things.
I know man, but I've been able to successfully avoid spoilers thus far other than
The identity of Dragon and Garpbut that didn't bother me too much, considering I guessed the latter.
It's a thing /v/ started doing because of Tim B^Uckley's awful comics.
Basically it'd be 4 panels of rambling with no joke that he thinks is a joke, or the punchline would be in the first or second panel and then he'd spend the remaining panels explaining the joke or trying to "extend" it and ruin the joke.
They spent a few years doing this and it's affected their ability to enjoy all comics without trying to trim panels.
It's the oddest thing but I sort of have the reverse of that. I'm back at high school but I'm completely aware I'm done with that so I just screwing about while everyone else seems to be doing work stuff to get ahead in life. Then again I get this feeling of being out of place while I'm flying in front of everyone or whatever so maybe it's double subtle and trying to let me know I never felt like I fit in even when I was at school.
OR maybe I can actually fly and my dreams are trying to remind me.
>multicrystal ghost core
>ten laserpixels of camera juice
We are all reginalds, pham.
Hot off the press people!
Reading this in the future? Too bad! You missed out!
All of those have some basis in subversion, a twist that makes it funny.
>buying gravestones with a coupon
>insisting you know you're going to die in a silly way
>pointing out how absurd it is that we manage to function at all
>casual unawareness of insane diet
>how can you drop something that's not real
In comparison to the eternal example of lolrandom (WAFFLES!!), those comics are actually funny.
Make your own for future generations to be baffled and insulted by
There was this one he retweeted earlier.
>Snakes and spiders attacking people since they can't see them
>Kangaroos beating the shit out of people and they can't tell what's going on
>Aussies themselves are invisible
Holy god what a shit show
That's an interesting idea. How would it look? Would we just see a flat ocean surface, or would we see a huge hole where it used to be, but the ocean is still acting like it's there?
I imagine it'd be like the glitch in minecraft that lets you see the entire underground from the right angle.
I don't know. Whenever this question pops up, I think about where I get the voices from but nothing ever pops up.
I can't even describe the voices I read them in.
The only thing that comes to mind is that they have high pitched voices in my mind.
I lost my shit on this one. After seeing this thread I've decided to marathon all of Beartato.
