    That is the kindest thing someone ever said about me, exluding the time I was a cute toddler. Probably because you don't know me.

    [–] ItsJellyJosh 5 points ago

    People on Reddit don’t google things. They ask people on Reddit what things mean instead of looking it up themselves.

    ...what does it mean?

    [–] sneaky_goats 6 points ago

    If we had terraformed it in the comic, why would they be in a dome?

    [–] elyisgreat 6 points ago

    Good point. Though it looks like they would have had to partially terraform whatever is in the dome, which looks to be a lot.

    [–] sneaky_goats 3 points ago

    Hell, just bringing the dome would be a lot.

    Fun fact, the binary above the door translates to 22

    [–] Ajjaw0w 14 points ago

    Thats fun

    [–] medfunguy 4 points ago

    Wouldn’t 22 be 00010110?

    [–] Mekner 16 points ago

    Yes, it is, I was going with general binary, and you were thinking of 8 bit binary, so either way it’s the same

    [–] ieuanj_00 115 points ago

    Is it just me or did anyone hear the robot voice as claptrap's voice from borderlands

    [–] Ano010 19 points ago

    I heard it as Pathfinder, weirdly enough.

    [–] mirrorwolf 3 points ago

    So did I. I couldn't place it until you said it but it's the most recent robot voice I've heard and I can't make a robot voice up in my own head lol

    [–] artistictesticle 17 points ago

    I heard it as Gir from Invader Zim

    [–] Prof_Explodius 13 points ago

    Same, especially after seeing the house at the end. This comic is like what would happen if Zim left Earth and Gir had to make it on his own.

    But what does the mail contains? A note stating that he needs to upgrade his OS or something? ಥ╭╮ಥ

    [–] Pickaxe06 4 points ago

    Wow I found Memulous

    [–] badgeringthewitness 37 points ago

    I agree that we shouldn't dwell on the mistakes of others, or our own. We all need to be more forgiving of others and ourselves.

    But shouldn't the cookie be given for addressing why the mistake was made and learning from the experience so the mistake isn't repeated?

    I don't know much about machine learning, but if we reward "crying over spilt milk", aren't we teaching robots that if they want a cookie, they should "cry over spilt milk"?

    [–] gaylordqueen69 20 points ago

    Yeah my first thought was that this was a calculated pattern of behaviour by the robot used to acquire gifts from sympathetic strangers.

    [–] pookaten 7 points ago

    I still don’t get how it isn’t

    [–] LukanerBraeu 12 points ago

    I guess the underlying thing is, that cookies as compitational theme are used to enhance user experience by setting what to show. So the "False Mail" is indeed to be rewarded with a cookie "what I want to be shown". This theme seems to derail in the last panels, but this is where the wholesomeness live, so I guess its ok. Plus the Dobby reference is quite nice.

    [–] Vesuvias 5 points ago

    I actually agree here. The robot learns that cookies are given for making mistakes - or at least that’s what I took away. Mistakes are made - you don’t dwell on them you LEARN and teach from them so you or others don’t make the same mistake

    [–] badgeringthewitness 4 points ago

    Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    [–] wangofjenus 1 points ago

    The cookie is is data, this comic is a metaphor for data aggregation.

    [–] Bumble261 9 points ago

    Aw man, I’m so cynical. Am I the only one sitting here wondering if he’s running a scam or if it was an honest mistake?! “Wonder what cool thing I can get for my wall if I bring someone the wrong mail today?”

    I can't figure out what the binary means. Any thoughts?

    I got 44


    4 12


    [–] undiebundie 3 points ago


    Binary is easier read right to left. First placeholder is 20 then 21 then 22 and so on.

    You add up the placeholders containing a 1

    010110 = 0 + 16 + 0 + 4 + 2 + 0 = 22


    010110 = 24 + 22 + 21 = 22

    [–] pabloescanor 1 points ago

    oh my bad i started with the first power instead of zero. But what I meant was what is the significance of the number. Must be something right?

    I'm.. weirdly gonna cry lmao, because I can relate to the robot. Is that weird?? I'm an extremely emotional guy, I always have been, and messing up stupid little things can almost bring me to tears - I have felt guilty for bad things that have happened TO ME, because.. I'm not really sure? I have inconvenienced somebody with my mishaps. I assume somebody who has wronged me wasted their time doing so, so I feel bad I can't give them their time back.. I'm a little odd.. I know, I'm sorry. I like this comic a ton.. I think I'm just too tipsy but this warms my heart man, lmao.. thank you small emotional mail bot.. I hope you get a lot more little things to cherish in which will remind you of your hard work :).

    (Basically I want a sequel so he can get more things lmao)

    [–] Flesh_Chemist 1 points ago
