Thanks, Kieben, for giving me my laugh of the day...

You know I might be whiny, but if you think I could be bad, I could be a lot worse. Let's watch as people argue whether or not you should tell people your brother has cancer.

On a completely unrelated note, I think I understand an underlying reason why webcomics are so popular, besides, of course, the explosion of broadband internet. Given that there's an entire generation that has downloaded much of its entertainment in the form of subtitled episodes of anime, then the idea of putting images with text doesn't seem to be as foreign, so that people who normally would have NO interest in comics at all would be attracted to the form. This also explains why "manga"-style webcomics are so popular are actually anime-stills put into comic frames than actually being more like, well, manga. It's not just the popularity of anime, but the popularity of subbed anime distributed over the Internet. Oh well, useless rant closing.
