Heh, glad to hear about weird stuff happening to someone else for once. I haven’t been called antichrist but I got called “dyke” just walking down the street the other day. Apparently sleevless shirts are “a dead giveaway”, go fig!
while I appreciate the idea that not having to come face to face with someone when buying an embarrassing book title, consider this: If you buy it from a shop, with cash, you will come face to face with a person that you don’t know, and will probably never meet again, who may not even register what you look like. If you buy an embarrassing title on the internet, your ISP, the online store you went to and your bank all know the title and you personal details. They legally have to store this information for years, and you are entirely dependent on their security. If there is some problem with their data systems (be it technical or human), that embarrassing information could be publish all over the place. So while going into a shop and buying it brings ten minutes of embarrassment, buying it online creates a record of your action that is preserved and outside of your control. Now which way would you go to keep something secret?
Nice cartoon, btw, I already know I’ll sit on the sofa reading it all through.
p.s. I was once told that I was “worshiping evil”
Oryx & Crake <3
I love that book.
I read comics online but I never read books online, and I don’t get crushed by piles of books. I get books from the library, usually several at a time, as I have since I was a child. The concept of “owning” books and re-reading them is actually pretty weird to me.
Was that Oryx and Crake?
Such a great book!
