    Just tell them it'll let them get better frags or whatever the fuck it's called these days, I've seen people rub dog shit on their foreheads because they think it brings them extra luck in games. Okay, I exagerate, but not by much.

    Is this in response to a British council suggesting trolls should get banned from voting in actual elections?

    What?

    This looks like a response to vitriol in gaming. "Spicy language in chat"

    It's not like this isn't a perennial subject for PA.

    Now, now, let's not be hasty. This might have some political applications if we tweak the parameters a bit...

    I'm aware how illogical this is due to the many and varied acts of violence perpetrated in cartoon form on PA I'm absolutely fine with, but for some reason this one (the rods in the brain thing, nothing to do with the spicy language trigger) really squicks me out.

    Tungsten penetrators are expensive and overkill for troll skulls. They can increase profitability by switching to copper jacketed lead projectiles launched by chemical propellants...why are you looking at me funny?

    you've got it all wrong; we're not trying to kill trolls, we just want to let the evil spirits out of their heads

    @jam warrior Well, the brain IS where the majority of thinking people do the majority of their real deep thinking, so I guess having sharp tungsten rods driven in there is pretty squicky.

    Put the user name in quotes directly after the @ sign. I think the autocomplete still doesn't work quite right with spaces.
    Just be advised it pops up a notification for that user, so its good etiquette to strip the @ mentions out of a post if you're quoting a post that has them, so they don't get bombarded with notifications every time someone responds.

    I love the disconnect between the name of the headset and it's brutal efficacy. I also love the name of the comic; Jerry is particularly good at titling these =)

    Make them a loot crate reward (.000000001% drop chance) and you can make one hell of a profit too.

    @tofystedeth Thank. For the below, I ended up "cheating" by imbedding the link via HTML, so hopefully, it won't smack their in-box around.

    Hi, Michael from Gentle Reminder here. I'd be happy to answer your question.

    Our first prototype fit snuggly over the head of a penis, using vegan and animal-free leather to maintain a secure fit. It used the same reinforcement behavior as our MKII.

    Thanks to a crowd funding campaign, we were able to fully relaxed our dream of assisting gamers of all genders and gender identities with the MKII.
