0055 - Sadness

Image


Well... This one is kind of inspired by so many (true) stories...
And that makes me sad. I hate knowing and seeing so many people feeling like s***
(quick note: even if sometimes I may consider/think that it's some kind of victim mentality, it's not my place to judge that)
If you're among those people, either depressed or extremely sad, know you're not alone and you never will. There are always people you can talk to, either web people or IRL ones. There are people who will help you and cheer you and love you, and probably more than you'd imagine!

However, even if there will be people to take care of you, to pick you up and to cheer you up one way or another, if you have to see a psychologist (or whatever similar person) or just a plain lot of s*** to deal with, I fear that you'll have to go see a doctor and deal with your stuff by yourself at some point.
Even if others will help you do that, you'll have to start the movement first.

And to everyone else, please try to help someone when you see he/she needs it.
And please just be kind to each other. I mean, why the hell being plain mean to someone else? I find it much more rewarding to be nice to someone than to be mean...
It's easy to say I know but I consider that it's still good to remind it from time to time?

0056 - Social Media

Image

Due to (awesome and fun) life stuff, I skipped last week's comic. Sorry about that!
I guess this week's self explanatory.
Of course there aren't only bad sides to social media, but it is a bit more fun to show that than the good sides :)
However, there can be bad uses of social media...

0057 - P2W

Image

So, this week's is something approaching an actual joke, which did not happen in a while.
Also, gamers will understand it better... Sorry non-gamers! On the other hand it can be frustrating so you may not want to know that feel.

By the way, I am not going to talk about the free-to-play/pay-to-win/buy-to-play/in-app purchases. Neither here nor in the comic - at least not now. We'll see.

0059 - Oil

Image


I wrote something about how I may change the formula of SIAH. Well this is a small try to something related to the news and this is what I aim to do for the webcomic now.
Note that I just aim, it does not mean I will succeed.
Anyway, I hope you like it! :)

0061 - Clichés

Image

How can someone miss that event? No one. Apart from not going out at all and staying away from the web, you can't.
Even if you do that, you may still have a friend to call or text you and talk about it.
Correction, Orlando's shooting death count is over 50.

It seems that I forgot to update last week.
Have two today then!

0062 - BAC

Image

A few more details/rant thing:

The Baccalauréat exam is still going on, and only some of the students signed that petition (so only a part is stupid [again, it is my opinion]).
In my opinion (emphasis on this), those students are crybabies that can't (or hardly) think by themselves. The problem was that they didn't know that Manhattan was not a city but a part of New York. Even if the second text could help understand what Manhattan was.

The same people would probably make fun of US people who don't know Europe's geography.

Last year, it was in literature, about "Le Tigre bleu de l'Euphrate" (the blue tiger of the Euphrates). Some students did not know that the "Tigre" was a river and that the "Tigre bleu" wasn't a literal thing. So they went full crybaby two years in a row.

If that was only that, it'd almost be amusing. But they have no idea of what's waiting for them next year. Plus, that exam is easy, except if you're not where you should be (like, doing sciences while you're a literature person and vice-versa), or that you have a panic/stress attack. AND they have only one exam a day over two weeks while a few years ago it was still two exams a day over a single week. So, yeah I am kind of baffled.

---

First lawsuit is because Charlie Hebdo, after January 2015's attacks may have promised to give some funds to the family of the killed people and didn't do it. However, I do not remember that part precisely, so this must be considered with caution.
Second lawsuit is following Paris' attacks in November.

Even though I do understand the process, there is still one thing that will always bug me: at what point is it resentment and the search of someone to blame for the death of a beloved one and at what point it is a dig for money and a complete disrespect of the dead (not that they'd care but this still sounds a bit... Opportunistic in my opinion, to say the least)?

I am not in anyone's head so I will never have an answer. Plus, even those people may not be perfectly honest with themselves. Let's keep it a mystery, or a personal opinion.


0063 - Brexing

Image

How not to talk about it?
There's already enough text about it in the comic I think. Thanks if you read the whole thing ^^
And yeah, the second pannel, it's a representation of a skyscraper (not really).

0064 - Again

Image

Oh, and another new, apparently, Russian researchers managed to run a simulation/computation in 15 minutes on a new-gen $500 GPU (with custom coding to optimize) while this computation takes 2 or 3 days on a supercomputer. Amazing wonders of optimization (or maybe a hoax, who knows)
I feel like I keep repeating myself and do not find a way to be funny/entertaining. This is bothering me :/
