Comic about the Singularity

Today's Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.  (Which incidentally is a very funny webcomic I read regularly.)  Mouseover the red button for a bonus panel.

Clearly the author hasn't read the proper Eliezer essay(s) on post-Singularity life.

This should be a link on Open Thread, not a top-level post.

I found it a welcome change of pace from the rather heavy posts of the past few days.

I disagree. New posts on an Open Thread disappear really quickly, and there's a good chance I would have missed this one.

I did consider that. Is there a formal rule about what links deserve separate posts, or just a judgment call about notability?

If there is, I'd like to know too, for when(/if) I try my hand at a top-level post. Hopefully the rating and moderation system is good enough such that no formal rule is needed.

I wasn't unduly distracted and the comic is actually quite (half unintentionally) insightful.

SMBC rocks.

Here's another recommendation. Many LW readers probably already know about Dresden Codak, a sometimes funny, sometimes serious comic that touches on many Less Wrongian topics, including the Singularity (especially the Hob sequence).

I tried reading Dresden Codak sometime ago and failed. It's really well-painted, but the storylines are hard to follow. In comics there seems to be a fine line between being too cryptic (Dresden Codak) and too word-heavy (anything by Enki Bilal); for how to do it properly, see A Lesson Is Learned which is/was likely the most awesome webcomic ever.

Dresden is great, but it updates so infrequently I wouldn't say I "follow" it.

It's been quoted at TV Tropes (sixth quote) for a while; I finally gave in and added a dissenting quote just now, despite it being from an obsolete page.
