    I argue the credibility of a hello-choptar losing wings while the blade comes out undamaged.

    More than that, though, why are there three seperate comment spaces?

      You dumb fuck, can’t you see the slope of the stilt thingy, the slanted angle away from the blades.
      What the fuck argue you gonna argue?
      No, yes?

      How would you decide who’s right?
      You gonna call Mythbusters?
      Draw an opposing comic where the wing doesn’t get clipped?

      I’m use to people nitpicking, I’ve invited with the tuts I do, but really?

        Actually, I agree with that one. Me, I had problems with the lifting mechanism, but that could have been solved by some sort of base plate or some unseen support structure. As is, I keep imagining the middle part of the house falling on their heads.

        For the blade being bent you can still fly it for a bit, I think. It causes vibrations and makes the handling more and more difficult and probably will crash eventually. I’m thinking getting shot with the arm gun will make that sort of situation moot.

      That is not a helicopter. that is an autogyro. and it is very possible as while the rotor is moving it can simply not be in a position to hit the strut. it’s a matter of timing.

        I don’t see the point in feeling entitled to anything from HSK. I wish him well with what he chooses to do, but beyond that it’s not like I can offer anything other than moral support. That and three bucks’ll buy you a cup of coffee.

        • Neo Kojiro
          August 18th, 2009 at 00:06 | #41

          It’s a matter of finishing what he starts. If he’s gonna make a new site and a new series, least he could do is endure the adversity of abject poverty to actually try and make a decent run of this shit. If he doesn’t have the stamina to pull two-dozen pages out of his ass before going AWOL again, he might as well throw in the comic gig altogether.

          I enjoy his works, but there’s a limit to integrity before it all just turns to dust.

            Pretty much. I mean I think it would be good for him to carry through with stuff, but otherwise it isn’t really my concern.

            August 21st, 2009 at 01:40 | #44

            I think it’s a proven fact that most people don’t really change over time, so a person’s statements are bound to repeat themselves. Also, this is directed at Nick, as there is a limit to direct replies, apparently.

            Well, i do all i can in the matter, which is pretty much just this. Feel free to pass my statements on to him, for however much it’ll actually sink in this time.

        • RGE
          August 23rd, 2009 at 22:44 | #45

          Well, I for one don’t feel entitled. My observation was just the usual comparison of two facts (artist’s statement and time passed) and the resulting absurd conclusion (that the artist killed himself drawing comics). I suppose that it’s entirely possible that Hyung has indeed changed in that he’s gotten older, and therefore lost a lot of steam. I know I have. I still get all these cool ideas, but I never really do anything with them. Could be because I’ve learned that they never get better when I pull them out of my head. Because, as it turns out, the cool ideas were flawed and don’t work as well as I thought they would. But I can always hope that I’m wrong.

          • Neo Kojiro
            August 25th, 2009 at 05:12 | #46

            That just means you’re rusting over. You shouldn’t mistake advancing age as an excuse to fail. Write the idea down somewhere and make a one-shot out of it.

          • Drooling Fan Girl
            August 28th, 2009 at 09:55 | #47

            It’s kind of like with the old “you need to draw a thousand drawing before you’re any good” Throw out ideas, just be willing to be ruthless with them and not too sad when you realize that the time hasn’t quite come for chickens in underpants.

            September 6th, 2009 at 13:49 | #48

            My ideas usually pertain to RPGs, and the number one thing that got me bored with RPGs were one-shots. Also the lack of freedom. In PnP RPGs! Because the group must stay together, and therefore they must all follow the same plotline and precious few scenarios are ever based on what the group, or members of the group, might want to do. Or at least that’s been my experience. It was simply easier to have fun when my expectations were a lot lower. My mind races ahead, and reality just can’t catch it. How could it? It’s like a rock golem trying to catch dragon in flight! Powerful, huh? ;-)

          • Neo Kojiro
            September 14th, 2009 at 13:05 | #49

            And here i thought tabletop RPGs were all about freedom. Having no specific system short of whatever’s brought up in the player manuals, that you could change up or re-design as you wished, and allowing for alternate useage of skills, like being able to breakdance with tumbling, or having stripteases being a sub-skill under Perform.

            As far as one-shots go, make a bunch of characters, have them go on a single journey, and call it a day. If the scenerio is too hard for level one-types, bump them up some levels and swap their skills around to reflect their personalities. To say nothing, if you really want the same characters, of having unwilling ones dragged along, or skipping time for harder challenges, or flashbacks for weaker ones. If yu can’t fulfill your dream in a PnP RPG, you aren’t trying hard enough.

          • RGE
            September 20th, 2009 at 04:25 | #50

            Of course I’m not trying hard enough! That’s the point. A dream doesn’t need to be fulfilled, it’s perfectly happy just being a dream. And fulfilling this dream would probably require me to find new people to play with, and that’s a hurdle I’m not willing to drag myself over. And no more one-shots. It was fun to try out a lot of different games, settings and characters, but without the promise of an extended existence for my character, something is missing, just as something is missing if I’m not the one to create my character.

            But I understand why there’s a lack of freedom in PnP RPGs. Someone has to come up with all the stuff that the PCs deal with, and that takes time and effort, which limits content. Especially when I’m the one who has to spend the time and effort. Last few times I wanted to try relying on the players to motivate their own characters in order to have a campaign that was driven by the PCs rather than by a series of quest givers. But that didn’t work at all, probably because the campaign setting wasn’t detailed enough to supply the characters with obvious goals.

            I think that’s why fighting usually wakes the players up. (Not in Shadowrun though, when everyone has to wait for the street samurai to go through his multiple actions – that makes players doze off.) In a fight there are usually clear objectives, and detailed rules that govern how a PC might reach those objectives. I’ve been trying to come up with a system where there are such clear rules for the whole setting, while also simplifying the combat rules so that a single scenario becomes a lot like a single battle, except only part of the scenario might have actual fighting. But this has proven to be difficult, so I think I’ll just give up and instead attempt to design a computer game. Good luck to me! ;-)

          • Neo Kojiro
            September 21st, 2009 at 15:18 | #51

            If a dream isn’t a goal, it’s a delusion. Anything you can’t eventually reach is a waste of effort. There has to be an end to everything, and if you don’t reach your goal before the end arrives, you’ll go with regrets for not reaching it. Even with a long-term character, there’s always an upper-limit of improvement to hit upon, to say nothing of age. Continuing forever is, essentially, an impossible dream, so it’s best if you can focus on getting things done and moving on.

            Again, the only lack of freedom is your imagination and implementation. Relying on the set rules may be good, but tweeking it is the true spirit of the PnP RPGs. And, yeah, not everyone is creative; this is why those who can make good shit up are thought of rather fondly. (EVEN IF THEY NEVER FINISH WHAT THEY START HINT HINT NUDGE NUDGE SAYNOMORE)

            So, Kingdom Hearts? That’s the best example of a game i can think of that has fighting and exploration without making one or the other feel limited. Also, i’ll hope for your success, even if i doubt it’ll come.

    Found an old haloscan throwback. Give thanks unto the Lord and the bounty of arguments he supplies us bored creatures.


    This place is looking more like a Fark flame war everyday…


    Leave Nate alone, it’s not like anybody ever renounced any belief in
    anything through a name calling session… you can’t convince geeky
    fans to change their mind on a frickin’ TV show, and you wanna
    challenge Christians on core life value beliefs??!!

    Nigga please!!

    It only plays in to “hating only hate” and the “persecution” complexes of both liberal and religious alike.

    I actually like Christians.

    Like Armenians and Jews, they are the most “Korean” of various people I’ve met.

    Polite, conventional, hard working, and pig headed.

    Most Koreans you’ll meet state side are, or at least were, Christians.
    They tend to be either exemplary decent human beings or complete
    hypocritical assholes, personality traits existing independently of
    belief in Jesus as Divine Saviour.

    I have never counted myself as one, but I have studied the Bible, as
    all educated people should, if only to be conversant in the monumental
    impact it has had in Western history.

    Being interested in the many religious traditions of the world, I also
    think Christianity offers nothing more to a civilized Asian other then
    an overlay of foreign myths and superstitions of ancient
    Hebrews/Greeks. You can easily be a traditional value, conservative,
    fag-hating, women-put-downing, anti-abortion Confucian, as many are.

    But I also think we should ban corn syrup, sugar laden “soft drinks,”
    fast food, advertising targeting children, and most if not all video
    games, and institute a rigorous mandatory fitness exam along with
    academics testing at every grade level, etc… oh yeah, de-privatize
    the airwaves and eliminate private media ownership (something along the
    lines of CBC or Euro public TV.).

    Eliminate high school as well, total
    waste of time, take only the geeky 10 percent to college, rest in
    vocational schools, apprentices in training, etc… Ban private
    vehicles, destroy the suburbs and re-forest the fuck out of it,
    re-center the population back in to city in small close knit community
    hubs connected by various public transport… obviously reduce the oil
    imports by encouraging and subsidizing alt fuels, fusion, not fission,
    crude oil only for manufacturing and agricultural sector and then
    slowly phase them out into organic (i.e. sustainable, non soil
    destroying, non carcinigeous) faming…

    Oh yeah, stop the meat
    subsidies, let the “market” decide the price of beef (which, I’ve read,
    would be about 46 dollars a pound factoring in all the expense in land,
    water, and feed we taxpayers pay the industry to gorge ourselves in to
    heart attacks, colon cancer etc… you know most of the wheat grown
    goes in to animals as feed? We give food people can eat to grass eating
    cows. Ya’ll fat fucks know all that meat’s bad for you, anyway!) Ban
    dangerous cults like Scientology, emphasize the nicer sides of existing
    religions… the Gospels, not Dueterotomy, etc…

    Promote community activities… knitting circles, bowling leagues,
    anything that gets people out together, away from staring at the TV
    alone all day (nothing but PBS shit on it by the time I’m through!),
    re-estalblish the extended family, kinship and meme, not the false
    promise of nuclear family that brought us nothing but isolation,
    divorce, and aniome ( i.e. “teen angst” and other made up bullshit for
    the utter failure of the “educational system.” Human Beings left to rot
    without guidance and direction in the most pivotal part of their lives,
    years of wasted potential, reduced to hapless cynicism and artificial

    Will it be a Heaven on Earth? A new Eden?

    No, people’ll find a way to fuck it up, it’ll end like anything else,
    it’ll just last longer then the present one (50~100 years before
    complete environmental degradation and/or nuclear/bio/chem wars :P )
    and people’d be more fulfilled. Not happy. Contrary to popular myth,
    happiness is not a goal to be pursued, attained or bought, but a
    byproduct of a decent life, a livelihood that honors your community,
    family and yourself.

    So I have some wacky ideas, as us all.
    I prefer my vision over Nate’s, but his is a foregone conclusion and mine’s a fantasy.

    And so it goes.


    What happens when we die?!

    Where do we go?!

    Back, back to the same place we were before being born, of course.
