    Can you actually hack bombs in Watch Dogs?

    Funny strip. Unfortunately I've yet to play Watchdogs. Also, shouldn't the word 'my' be bolded instead of 'bomb'?

    nah, the guy's like "of all the hackable devices on my person, why would he choose the bomb?"

    Oh. I thought it was more more like when people don't think something could happen to them. How how people think they'll never be a victim of something because it usually happens to someone else.

    'There's so many bombs out there, why would he hack my bomb?

    Pretty sure this is just pointing out silly things in video games, not so much social commentary

    Ha! I had this experience last night.

    I didn't know if it was a grenade or the dude's phone or what. He freaked the fuck out and then chucked it at his pals, killing two of them. It was awesome!

    I wasn't really talking about social commentary, just the meaning of the joke.

    Lol, this is pretty much EXACTLY what I imagined happened to justify being able to blow up someones explosives. Then I realized you were making their phone explode, then shifty eyed my cell phone and threw it across the room. Thanks god for Otter Boxes.

    Guess the quote then send me a PM.

    So it is their phone? What the hell is Apple packing in those things these days, C4? It explodes with so much force!

    I'd think you'd just be overclocking the phone so hard the batteries overheat to an unsafe level and detonate. Lithium's dangerous shit, after all.

    I think the most important part is that there is an incorrect punctuation mark ending that last sentence. The horror.

    It's not their phone. In the game it says "explosives detected" and when you detonate them some of the guys straight up say "My grenade is gonna blow!"

    "Grenade" is Chicago slang for "phone."

    Oh I don't know Watch Dogs but think this is funny for the social commentary nonetheless. Don't we all, in a way, have bombs in our pockets?

    If you like Hearthstone please check out this comedy web series based on the game!

    That's what I told the judge! Why else would I need kids to diffuse it with their small hands.
    In other news, I need to move.
