    When I was a teen, I mostly did the former. Ever since, I mostly do the latter.

    I wouldn't recommend either.

    If you're curious about my icon; it's an update of the early Lego Castle theme's "Black Falcons" faction.

    I already did both those things, and enjoyed spending time with people

    Mainly to stop the first two things :P

    But spending time with people is how I got materials to do both of those things!

    One of my only "friends" sent me a text when the stay at home orders started being given out
    You were born for this

    I got a slightly more diplomatic version:
    Of all my friends I think you are the most naturally well equipped for a lockdown. Psychologically speaking

    Pfft, I mastered these skills decades ago.

    Does the great Tycho have any advice for the introverts on how they can best use this time to further stoke the flame of their vague resentment and disdain toward the human race? ;)

    Honestly, I would take that as a compliment. lol

    I admit to a degree of mystification regarding the current Internet fad for playing up how... damaged?... you are. It's as if talking about how you obsess over mistakes and embarrassments is a bizarre humblebrag, like talking about how you're bad at math. I'm not exactly a social butterfly but I guess I'm really normal, or something, relatively-speaking, because I *really* don't understand why this is something that people want to dredge up and shout out to the world (unless they're cartoonists and get paid for it...). I'm not sure whether it's a genuine coping mechanism or just a way to virtue-signal to an in-group? It's all very confusing to me.

    I did - I'm choosing to believe he was referring to my psychological resilience to adversity :P

    Making fun of yourself is funny. That's been true for awhile. And when you describe what sounds like a weird behavior you do and people listening realize they do it too... it's not only funny, but it makes you feel a little bit better about yourself.

    I definitely think that people can take it too far with the "look how quirky I am" stuff. But often that manifests by people trying to define themselves as something super unique. I think I prefer when people share the "oddities" and flaws they have in common because it emphasizes that we're all a lot more similar than we are different. And what we lose in "specialness" we can gain in community and understanding.

    I feel like there should be a 4th panel for some reason.

    Definitely. There's no punchline. It's just two things a lot of people already do.

    Panel 2 is normal poop. Panel 3 is cramping diarrhea.
