I snickered for most of the email.. The only things that really cracked me up were the two eggs at the end.

For whatever reason, I get REALLY mad when people call 3.5" diskettes "hard disks".

Bub's thing reminded me of a guy we worked with. We had some clamps like these and we had him convinced that they were "cordless jumper cables".

Of course, thins guy was the same guy we told to go into the equipment closet and get the "board stretcher" because a piece of lumber we used was about 2 inches too short for what we were trying to do with it.

So, in short, I liked it.
It wasn't the best but it was FAR from the worst.

The comment Strong Bad made about the middle schoolers being idiots made me cackle a little bit. The two easter eggs at the end were pretty good, but the majority of this email totally sucked.

2/5

"Technology is something cool that you don't know how it works."

Roffle.

"And you have to buy a new one when it breaks."

Snicker.

"I have some technology in my pants right now!"

WABEROFFLE.

Phew, just a diskette. XD

They did in mine. It was just an introductory course to computers--though we were on old AppleIIEs--not because I'm THAT old (I'm only 21), but because our school was too poor to afford newer computers.

I definetely thought it was better than some recent ones, I snickered all through the Email. Here are my favorite parts:

:sb: "Basically, middle school kids are idiots"(Don't kill me, I am in 8th grade and am not insulted)- And when he folds the floppy disk in half.

:bubs: Wireless extension cords

I give it 77/100

We had it at my middle school. I was there back in 1992-94... And to take the cake, that was in Eastern Kentucky!!!

Ha!

I just watched it again. Just saw the half-dead goat thing. That was kinda funny. Is he half alive or half dead?

Ummm...I don't speak...nerd latin


Err... nothing nerdy about what I said. Did you not learn in school that the rightmost position of a number is called "ones", the next is called "tens", the next "hundreds" and so on? If not, I'm worried about the quality of your education.

In binary, instead of ones, tens, hundreds, etc. You have ones, twos, fours, eights, sixteens, etc.

That was so GREAT! I laughed out loud, which is a good sign.

Bravo!

You know, I didn't even realize that that thing at the end was a screensaver until I watched it again. I thought he... you know... saved the email... then opened some sort of labyrinth game...

Well, i know what to put under "thumbs up" in the next school newspaper

oh man, this is my new favorite. I feel like running through the halls tomorrow yelling "WOOT!" but i dont know how that would accomplish anything, considering im in the highschool and hes in the middle school

oh man, hes so cool.... i wonder if he was the one who made the awesome skull candle holder out of metal last year. That was so cool.

10/10 deffinately \

i feel like visiting him tomorrow

to bad middle school and high school get out at the same time :-|

YAY!

We're not ALL idiots...:P

And not all robots look like square people...*points to avatar* Oh, never mind, she's not a robot in that one. But the "destroying Japan" comment cracked me up. In fact, I was laughing throughout most of the email. And the thing about technology being magic stuff that you don't know how it works and if you break it you need to buy a new one was hilarious.

I thought it was great. Totally great. Technology means magic. The cheatbot. Wireless. It was all great.

Isn't anyone happy to see Pom-Pom return as a main character and not just a sight gag?

This email is pretty good. I'm still weirded out from Homestar in the Easter Egg, him missing his legs and floating up. Looks like we won't have to worry about Pom Pom anymore. Just a question. Is he still friends with Homestar or he's way too busy with movies and girlfriends to hangout with the rest of the H*R gang?

Nothing too spectacular here. Pom Pom's appearance added points.

This email was pretty cool, not the best though.

:sb: "Either way, middle school kids are all idiots" (this is kinda funny because I'm in seventh grade and have a website called IDIOTS WORLDWIDE!, that my friends help me with.)

Hmm...you know what's even stranger? I know a friend that lives near Oswego who's name is Jay....even though he's not a teacher. Though it would be cool to have a friend that had an e-mail answered. And it'd be cooler to have one of mine answered, right Porps?

Deffinitly one of the best lately. "It's basically anything that's really cool that you don't know how it works" Quite good, quite good. A-minus

Nerdular Nerdance, perhaps? ;) Just kidding! :p

The Cheatbot was soooo cute! And Strong Bad sure knows his middle schoolers, if not his technology. Homestar's freaky float-away both scares and amuses me no end.

Strong Bad making fun of "technology" teachers that know less about computers than most of their students...priceless.

Really? All I recall about middle-school was gym class, and the fact that everytime I walked through the halls, at least one guy would, for whatever reason, yell out "8th grade!" like he was at some sort of sporting event or pep rally. That, and somebody called me gay for hating school. I later broke his legbenders.
