Reply Ol' Gui on January 30, 2013 at 10:10 am Random, you sound like the kind of person that always keeps a towel handy. Can’t be too careful. Reply Milo on January 30, 2013 at 10:21 am Everyone should always know where their towel is.

Reply Brass Monkey on January 30, 2013 at 9:09 am Connect Four! I miss that game. Maybe i’ll make ‘computer calculating’ sound effects next time i’m playing.. Reply J-L on January 30, 2013 at 10:29 am Ha! Good one! You’re dating yourself somewhat, Adam: the “BEEP-BOOP-BEEP-BEEP-BOOP-BOOP” computer noises of the second panel may only make sense to people who’ve lived through the 1980’s. In fact, hearing that “thinking computer” noise makes me nostalgic for the 80’s. I’ve googled for it but I haven’t been able to find a good sample. Anybody know where I can find an audible version of it? (It might be good to let youngsters listen to it, if only so they can understand the reference.) Reply Rhea on January 30, 2013 at 10:39 am That’s one of those sounds that kids today don’t hear, like tiktiktiktikdingwhap and that godawful connecting noise of the old modems. Reply Adam on January 30, 2013 at 12:35 pm Hey, I still think all computers should beep and talk like the ones in Wargames. Reply LanceThruster on January 30, 2013 at 11:50 am What I want to know is why does a lot of the rest of the world call it “maths?” Reply Davidk9292 on January 30, 2013 at 3:15 pm Because it’s called MATHematicS. Reply BD on January 30, 2013 at 12:03 pm Adam, you’re onto something. The next craze in matchmaking websites: Algebromance, where male math geeks can fall in love … with each other’s numbers. @ninlen — Yes, your comment was the seed of this idea, so talk to Adam about your cut if he goes forward. @LanceThruster — I think it’s because there is more than one math. You know, arithmetic, algebra, geometry, calculus, &c. But I just always presumed, since my British and Australian associates always use the term; and ever since I asked why they seem to hate gerunds (“We were all stood in the road …”) and they couldn’t understand the reason I asked, I’ve stopped asking such questions.
