    I can’t believe that after years of faithful reading this is the tenor of my first comment here, but ‘aggressive’ is spelled wrong in the first panel.

    And you used the word ‘wrong’ when it should have been ‘incorrectly’.

    Actually, ‘wrongly’ may have worked as well.

    This strip (and the previous) is the perfect example of thinking too much into inane stuff. Luckily this one had a happy ending. Most cases end in suicide.

    The problem lies in the fact that what may seem inane is actually greatly important to the one thinking about it.

    I LOVE this one so much. Girl doesn’t smiling enough.

    I always wonder which is the greater tragedy: thinking about too hard about “inane” things, or telling other people that their concerns are inane.

    If inane means lacking significance does that imply “ane” means significant? When this is sorted out we may begin calling things inane, but until that point I move that everything is significant to somebody.

    Significance is simply a matter of perspective, and individual. Ignorance is very common even in the brightest individuals.

    I think a lot of people equate the entire field of philosophy with “thinking too hard about inane stuff”. But they’re wrong. And maybe a bit shallow.

    -ane as a suffix denotes “belonging to”
    So inane in- unnecessary, negative
    Prof- ^profligate= overthrown, ruin

    For example, in old breton a rabbit was called a coney (rhyme with honey) and was a metaphor for the vagina.
    The Easter bunny is a symbol of the rape of Queen Boudica and her daughters.
    The Germanic armies brought thier word kunt, as in gropecunt street, an old, since modified, old London street name.
    Those who lose have their language deemed profane, as no amount of torture will stop the celts from fighting the Christians, who seek to destroy all competing cultures to this day.
