Unless you're like me, then bike every damn day.

Here’s that whole comic I talked about last week. Of course now, the next one is up over at Medium.com: “How Are Websites Made?” Every click helps, guys. Thanks!

I know some of you have said “I drive a car to work everyday.” I considered that, it just makes for a very short chart.

And a really good chance of people complaining about it.

There will also be a 100% chance of not wearing pants.

See you at Katsucon / Necrocomiccon

The next two weeks I’ll be at conventions with Super Art Fight, bringing comics, shirts, books, and even ties to table with. All this stuff will be on my online store (hilariawesome.com) soon, but in the meantime here’s a sketch of what me behind a table is going to look like:

conventiontableplan

This Valentine’s Day weekend I’ll be at Katsucon at the National Harbor outside of DC with Super Art Fight. We’re doing two shows on Saturday (2:30 and an uncensored mess of a show at midnight) that you should be sure to check out.

Next weekend I’ll be in New Jersey at Voltaire’s Wicked NecroComicCon. Again with Super Art Fight and also with a table full of stuffs.

If you read the comic at all, be sure to come say hi. I love meeting Systemics and putting a face to a (user)name. You should not at all feel compelled to buy anything, and I normally like to give anyone who mentions that they read the comic something free. The secret phrase is “Marty Farts”.

The System 673: Not How That Works

The other day I was on morning radio. On the way into the studio, I was listening to the show so I knew if any segments had some running jokes that we could reference on the air. What I heard was a poll about honking at women on the street. Do ladies appreciate it? What’s wrong with letting them know they’re looking good? Come on, it’s an ego boost, right?

To quote Kristen, I got quite the “feminist rage boner” over this one. Nope. That’s not how that works. You shouldn’t honk at women on the street. It doesn’t make women feel better about themselves. Even if some girls claim that it does (they called in to that effect), you shouldn’t do it. Why? Because you’re doing that because you’re in a car and you know you can get away with it. Would you say that to someone if they had the ability to kick you in the balls? Because that should be a baseline for words and actions. If someone had the opportunity to kick you square in the nuts right after you opened your mouth, would you still say those things? If the answer is “no”, don’t say those things. Don’t do those things. It makes people feel at the least creeped out but at the most unsafe.

And the thing I always come back to, what in the world do these people think is going to happen next? Will the woman just turn around and throw her number at them, knowing that now, after years of searching and dressing up for the sake of others, she can finally rest easy knowing that a man in a car thinks she’s attractive and has conveyed this through the level of communication worthy of her intelligence, the horn honk?

I think the “Nad Shot Test” is my new litmus test for all things. Teach it to your children.

I’ll post in a separate post with some updates, but in short there’s a Super Art Fight show on Saturday that y’all should attend. But I’ll let that be elsewhere.

Subtle I know.

Watch out for that guy. We haven’t seen the bike sniper in a while, but I thought it was time for a comeback.

In our own way, we all need to be bike snipers. You have to be a little on the offense on your bike, assertive enough to not get run over. This guy is pushing those limits, but there’s an element of that in every cyclist on the road. Some wear it on their sleeve more than others.

Vote!

It’s also the final day to vote for “Best/Worst File Name” on Thursday’s comic. Vote, won’t you?

The System 600: WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED SINCE THE LAST TIME WE DID THIS

Like numbers 500400300200 and 100, another recap of what we’ve learned in the last 100 comics. I enjoy putting these together, but they do take quite a while. All the panels are from comics from the last 100 comics. Can you name where all of them are from?

Also, we have something else to celebrate! We also recently passed the four-year anniversary of the comic as well. 400 comics! That’s pretty good, right? That officially makes The System my longest-held job / relationship.

<I’ll insert more words about what it’s like to do 600 comics here soon.>

Anyway, if you want to help me celebrate, there’s a few things you can do:

  • Share your favorite comics from the archive with friends.
  • Comment on posts.
  • Buy prints of any comics you like from HilariAwesome.com, our online store.
  • Buy shirts from HilariAwesome.com, our online store.
  • GET READY to give me more money, because I’m going to be launching a Kickstarter for The System Book 1 in a few weeks. As soon as the book is mostly built and I have a quote for the number of books, it’ll all come together. Stay tuned!

The System 591: The Worst

Aren’t they just THE WORST?

Yes, that is underlined, bolded, and italicized.  I simply can’t emphasize any more than that.

The System 572: Bump

When you’re on a bike, you can weave through traffic (carefully), but you also have to be extra careful of every little crack and bump in the road. Sometimes transitioning to other modes of transportation can be… difficult.

The System 545: How to Shorten Your Commute

This occurs to me every morning when I hear the traffic report.

All shirts are $15 this week!

BY THE WAY! If you’re looking for gifts for loved and not-so-loved ones this holiday season, check out the HilariAwesome.com store, won’t you? The shirts are all MARKED DOWN FOR THE WEEK to $15. Yes, until Sunday, you can get all your shirts cheaper than before! And the Coffee and Venn Diagrams shirts are back in stock, as is the 28 Parsecs poster (by popular demand!).*

*Should that period go there? I was always bad with punctuation and parentheses which, interestingly enough, is the name of my School of Rock cover band.
