Everything we know is wrong (to some degree)

Jesus is omniscient. When he created the world, he knew everything that would ever happen in it.

With that foreknowledge, he likes to wear the cross ironically.
So he goes around confusing the hell out of people just for kicks? Or does he tell them how he’s going to hang there some day?
That would make sense. If there was a god that created the universe the way it is then he would have to have one hell of a weird sense of humor.

Maybe it's a bit like a Vietnam vet wearing a necklace made from the bullet that didn't sucessfully kill him.
More as if Marie Antoinette was wearing a little model guillotine …
Perhaps more like if Anne Green had taken to wearing a noose as a decoration whenever she happened to pass the Read Estate. Alas she did not, though her father did start charging admission to meet her once the legal danger was passed.

I dunno how confused. It's a common enough item, just without religious connotations, yet. A tool of the oppressors he's signalling he's totally unafraid of.
It'd be more like if Trump had a tax form necklace, or Don, Jr. wore a barred prison window on a chain, or Eric wore a doorknob marked 'PULL.'

My inner man tells me that was its intended purpose all along.

Edit: Anyone that can read the official page (click on image) about the image and manage to keep a straight face knowing it's a damn penis deserves an award.

I've copied mega-gigabytes to and from USB drived many times and I've never understood why the transfer speeds and estimated time to finish fluctuates so much.

1) Transfers can go very fast while the writes are being cached--then slow way down when a cache flush is forced.

2) Flash drives (and SSDs) have a certain amount of space available for writing. Once that's used up pages marked for deletion have to be actually erased--and that's slow. Writing drops to the speed the controller can erase pages. SSDs usually are built with a bigger reserve for writing so this is less of an issue.

Maybe I'm a psychopath, but I don't get this.
I think its a dig on cats sleeping all the time, presumably due to exhaustion. The cat realizes why he's always sleeping in the last panel.

But I could be wrong. Some of these dog/cat comics are a bit subtle for me. Maybe I should get a pet.

I didn't have to look who wrote this to know who wrote this.
