It does seem as though you may have left out the horizontal stripe in the ‘h’ in “sigh” though. I have to admit that I spent a second or two wondering: “SIGII”? Is his girlfriend’s name SIGII? Reply AckAckAck on November 7, 2012 at 4:02 am I think it’s his catchphrase. SIGII is now his catchphrase. I don’t care if it’s a mistake. We will make it his catchphrase and we will do it NOW! Reply Codric on November 7, 2012 at 10:57 am Sigii… That’s an awesome idea! O_O Reply Adam on November 7, 2012 at 8:57 am Ha! Weird! Yeah, I looked at my original and yep, I just missed crossing the H. That’s a new kind of mistake for me. Thanks for catching that! Reply Garrett Williams on November 7, 2012 at 9:51 am I read it early this morning and just figured it was just some guru reference I wasn’t familiar with. Glad I clicked the link on Twitter before realizing I already saw today’s comic so I could see what was meant. “Sigii” does seem like some kind of foreign guru word. Reply John on November 7, 2012 at 12:16 am This was my favorite one in a long time. They’re all great, but there was something really entertaining and offbeat about this one. Reply MortalAnonymous on November 7, 2012 at 12:59 am I did a bit of a triple-take on that myself. I was like “Wait, did that say..?” before I realized the ‘h’ WAS just missing a tick after all. ^-^ Reply Thorbjørn on November 7, 2012 at 2:04 am You know who else hid in caves in mountains? (we need an updated word for godwinning with Bin Laden) Reply Nebulous on November 7, 2012 at 4:58 am But I get the best neighborhood WiFi connection from up there. Reply Jeff on November 7, 2012 at 5:05 am I’ve often wondered at the possible wisdom a guy would get from sitting alone on a mountain top. I bet he’d be kind of “out of touch”, don’t you think? I wonder where this “meme” came from? I’ve seen it in comic strips for decades. Reply Rhea on November 7, 2012 at 11:05 am I assumed they sit up there to keep people from “bugging” them– and the phone doesn’t ring all the time. Reply malcar on November 7, 2012 at 6:07 pm Maybe it has to do with teachings of Confucius. Maybe they are separating themselves from the world so that they can reflect in order to gain wisdom, By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.

Reply LanceThruster on November 7, 2012 at 10:15 am Wrt “Might makes right”…A true guru would know of Catch-22, i.e. People have a right to do to you anything which you cannot prevent them from doing to you. The Noble Truth of Suffering is this: Birth is suffering, ageing is suffering, sickness is suffering, death is suffering; sorrows and lamentation, pain, grief and despair are suffering; association with the unpleasant is suffering, dissociation from the pleasant is suffering; not to get what one wants is suffering – in short, the five aggregates of attachment are suffering.
