second picture : tatoo very close to her va*#!~

Am I the only one that notices that Erin seems to have a tattoo on her upper inner thigh? Or is it just some off character scribbling?

Chicks with tats close to their va*#!~s rock! That and chicks with tongue piercings. Now if I can only find a chick with a va*#!~ tat and a tongue piercing, I'll be cookin' on gas!

Nope i already asked that question a few posts ago.
Glad i aint the only one though.
Seems like a star mostly used in mario games together with the triforce tatoo on her arm i am thinking she is a nintendo fangirl

Naming your cat Geohot? That's just silly

...Oh, I see what you did there :D

Sooo... any chance of getting something funny or are we going to keep bitching about non-issues and burning strawmen ?
No ?
Okay, cool, whatever.

Flee like a bitch?
I thought getting sued by a multi-million company is a good reason to flee.

It's amusing enough, but I prefer it when subtle humor is actually subtle. Also, the cat should be a dog. Because, you know... that hair of his is way more canine than feline.

A chicken would be a better parallel than a cat, if you ask me. But I guess that wouldn't fit the story-line, would it? No one adopts a stray chicken. Not when you can just as easily fry that bad boy up with some greens and cornbread on the side. At least that's what my Momma used to do when a chicken strayed into our front yard. Finger lickin' good!

HankMan:
Well that was certainly a cat-tastrophe!
I wonder what they're gunna name the hamster?

oh YOU!!! Always coming up with witty one liners every time I see a comment! Keep on trucking, good sir!

I loved this one, very funny

But according to him and seemingly the entire internet, he was going to win. Why flee with sure victory?

Oh, right, he didn't think he would win. I gotcha.

So, is the girl Sony then? Shall I get my baseball bat and go after her head with it? Because Sony should really be nicer to its customers cats and all his friends. They're trying to get the addresses of every cat who ever used GeoHot's litterbox, you know.

Nobody fled anywhere, Sony just tried to make it look like he did because they're, if I may quote Maddox, "insecure about the size of their penis".

Settling is not the same thing as fleeing, either.

Wait, is the last panel a stab at him not wanting to get sued into oblivion by an electronics conglomerate? And do most people not settle out-of-court because they know they have no/slim chance of winning the case? you can't really ask him to become a martyr (for an cause that would be lost on the general gamer-population) unless you yourself are willing to do so.

I'm surprised there wasn't more hate about this comic given the posts i've seen in the forums about Georgey Boy.

Execpt he did not flee, he had a vaction planned.

Oh my god, that was fucking brilliant.

My thoughts exactly, Legion. My thoughts exactly.

Double-e? Ninja'ed :@

I actually laughed out loud ^-^

Absenting yourself from the country when you know you have a scheduled deposition and after you've tampered with evidence may not be "fleeing," but it is "assholery."

No one asked him to be a martyr. He was the one running off at the lips, selling wolf tickets, 'bout how he had a good case and was gonna whup Sony's ass. Then, after all that yapping, he folded like a cheap patio chair.

I love how the same people who were insisting that he couldn't lose are the same people now insisting that he should have settled. Pick a side and stick with it, damn it!

But his cause was to bring back the other OS feature for which he had paid for. Things probably changed in the case and his then advantage was no more (you do know that things change, right?), thus he had to settle out of court/make a deal (can't remember).

But i disagree, people WANTED him to become a martyr and go all the way with a case, but are now deriding him from not stubbornly going ahead with a now crap-case that would ruin him financially.

...they changed their minds because cases do not stay the same, new evidence comes into light (such as he had signed up for PSN and the whole jurisdiction debacle). To be ignorant of changes in complicated legal matters is retarded.

Not a full four weeks before he settled, he was saying in response to the question of whether or not he was going to win: "Oh without a doubt. I think I will beat them. I think the reason they brought this suit is just to harass me and 'this is what happens to you if you hack Sony products.' Beating them in court is just a start." ( http://www.techspot.com/news/42569-geohot-on-sony-ps3-hacking-lawsuit-beating-them-in-court-is-just-a-start.html ) Not only is he saying he's going all the way, but he's also saying that he's going further than that once he's done with them in court. A lot must have changed in those three weeks. EDIT: And I'm not seeing where it could have, given that most of the time was spent waiting on the Court to rule on the jurisdictional issue -- which it didn't even get an opportunity to rule on because he settled.

Sucal:

CrystalShadow:

Well, the cat is name Geohot...

And each panel is a stab at the PS3 hacker of that name, with parallels to the news articles about him.
Dig up news about the hacker named Geohot, and a lot of these will make a lot more sense.

Note to self, Sarcasm doesn't translate well into digital media.

Hence why most people end with a /sarcasm.

OT: Funny stuff there. I enjoyed it.

They changed their minds only after he settled and their whole "he's bound to win" bullshit became obvious bullshit. If you let me wait until after the final whistle to pick the winning team in a football game, I'll pick the right team 100% of the time.

Yes, things can actually change in three weeks. Good too see that you finally get that.

This is not professional sports, this is a legal issue, you do not pick a "side". If a favorable case suddenly turns sour then you are not supposed to stick with it to the end like some stubborn goat. To change ones opinion when new facts come into light is not bad, and in fact is the preferable course of action. Again, to reiterate, if he had to make a deal it probably means that his case is no longer as great as it was before.

See my edit above as to there not being any real opportunity for the litigation landscape to change. Discovery had pretty much ground to a halt and after briefs were filed in support of and opposition to Hotz' Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Personal Jurisdiction, the case was pretty much in limbo as the parties awaited the Court's ruling on that Motion. What significant events occurred during those three weeks that would have imparted to Hotz and his attorney information that they didn't have before those three weeks when Hotz was arrogantly running his mouth?

And the "pick a side" advice was directed towards Hotz' fanboys (who switched their position from "he can't lose" to "he was smart to settle" after Hotz settled), not towards Hotz and his attorney. Which makes my analogy to a football game entirely appropriate. If you wait until after the final outcome to change your position on the outcome, you ain't no kinda prognosticator. You're just a wishy-washy idiot.

Well that seemed overly mean-spirited.

I loved it xD
Cracked me up allot.

EPIC WIN!!!

Stupid piece of shit... : (

Also... the word, "Pube" made me uncomfortable coming from her... Dont' change anything!

Burn...this comic is becoming my new favorite thing.

I hate tattoos.
