    We all have to hold that door for somebody, ya'know. It's that revolving door we call life.

    Trying to hold a revolving door is a fool's errand!

    Life's like a saloon door from Western movies. You step in, everybody gives you a disapproving glare, then ignores you. And then you have to get out of the way before it smacks you in the ass on your way through.

    I've been called out for 'too soon' when asking my goalies in Rocket League to just hold the door. Seriously, I'd die for you man. Just hold the freakin door

    Life's like a saloon door from Western movies. You step in, everybody gives you a disapproving glare, then ignores you. And then you have to get out of the way before it smacks you in the ass on your way through.

    A saloon door smacking right across your ass. An apt comparison to how we can never stop life from blowing up in our faces. Just as Sparrow Lancel tried to stop the High Sept from...

    Immediately, a thick ruler descended upon my fingers, hard. I looked up to see a Nun, who appeared seemingly out of thin air, her steely gaze looking down upon mine.

    "No Spoilers." she said coldly.

    And like that, she vanished. Possibly to punish another over eager commenter from ruining people's enjoyment of shows with a stern assertion and a smack from her long, thick ruler.

    Yeah, you don't fuck with the No-Spoilers Nun.

    I'm curious as to how the title--the codename for the villain in Goldeneye--relates to this strip.

    Oh huh.
    I was thinking it was some sort of two-faced thing, which is where that allusion normally crops up.
    I learned something today. Guess I can go home.

    Janus had 2 faces. The word January comes from the name. He looks forward into the future while reflecting back on the past.

    Yeah, I knew that. Just not the door thing.

    Not a big fan of Game of Thrones, I take it. Spoilers #Hodor

    Nor I, and in reading his wiki I learned there is also a god of ports and harbours (and previously doors) named Portunus.

    The level of minutiae that the Romans felt was subject to direct supernal oversight is quite amusing.

    Well, that's fantastic.

    I'm trying to go spoiler free until the last book comes out.

    Civics is not a consumer product that you can ignore because you don’t like the options presented.

    You might be waiting for awhile. The next book to come out isn't the last one. Last I heard, he has one more planned after that.

    I heard that everyone dies in the last book.

    Literally everyone.

    Even the author.

    The last word of the book is "Argh".

    Before I knew about the GoT thing I just thought Gorb was using "Too soon" as a catch all response to something he didn't want to do, a way of Throwing It On The Ground, ad it were. Even realizing I was wrong, I really want to start using it that way myself.

    I figured "too soon" was him saying that the guy was too far away to be asking him to hold the door, and then he started thinking too much about it and thinking of it as a metaphor for for helping others in general, making him get weirdly emotional, and I figured that was the joke. Then people start making oblique references to some event in Game of Thrones and I get confused.

    I mean, it's one of those things that isn't a spoiler until you understand the full context of it, which typically means you've seen/read it. At which point you look back and go "hey that was a spoiler!"

    I've seen this a few times in reviews. A reviewer will carefully pick their words to avoid spoiling something. And then the Spoiler Police will show up in the comments and loudly proclaim it a spoiler. Thus actually spoiling it for people.
