    I consider myself fairly acute but this is the first PBF comic I've never understood. Someone want to explain it to me? Pretty please?

    That's Earth, and the Moon.
    The Moon is concerned that she'll catch humanity from Earth if they orbit, Earth assures her that it won't happen.
    In the last frame, you see two humans on the surface of the Moon.

    What I'm trying to say is humanity is like herpes.

    That one's funny, but I always find it mildly off putting, since my eyesight is much worse than they think the kid's is, and I still get by with regular old glasses.

    I wasn't too impressed by the new comic.

    Are the comics on the website in any order whatsoever?

    I went in to check now and despite reading all of them several times, most recently earlier this year, I now find what appears to be new ones just randomly inbetween stuff that I recognize.

    That one has always bothered me a little bit because it seems to imply that it goes like this:

    1) Is the patient's eyesight bad?
    2) If yes, shoot lasers at the eyes until eyesight improves.

    You first need to run a crapload of tests to know how exactly to correct the sight in each eye in order to get a map of how much tissue the laser should ablate where.

    Maybe "Haha! That comic was amusing and also perfect." would do it.

    Its a comic on the internet that's meant to be humorous. It's not trying to imitate actual eye surgery.

    Don't be pedantic.

    Some say that the Blood Angels are tainted: that they harbour a dark secret. I know this to be true. I have seen the infamous Death Company: wild-eyed and foam-mouthed berserkers who tear their enemies limb from limb, crush skulls with a single blow, snap spines and rip out inner organs. I have seen the Sanguinary Priests: the passing of blood filled chalices from lip to lip, heard their wracking lamentations of Sanguinus's death. I have watched their rituals: mighty warriors daubing their armour in the blood of their foes, heard them crying for vengeance against the enemies of the Emperor.

    If they were studying him because his eyesight was amazing then it wouldn't be horrible, and that means it's not how a PBF comic ends.

    The grim humor from the comic comes from you believing that this awful thing could happen from a misunderstanding. The laser eye surgery itself isn't slapstick. Besides, note that I said "bothered me a little bit". I still understand what he was getting at and I think the comic is alright.
