Burned or Burnt?

Burned or burnt? I just can't tell. Sounds like burnt to me. Or maybe it doesn't matter, I dunno. =] OptimisticFool 07:44, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Burnt. {{Chipwich/sig}} 17:31, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Ghost head

On the picture at the end of the toon, Strong Sad's head has his hand and upper body parts shining through. I'm new around here and don't know how to open a category on the real page (this would be a goof, right?), so could somebody add it for me?sombervacationgoofheadkx0.png

It appears this has been changed already. I see what you are talking about in the image above, but in the actual toon his head is totally opaque. You can edit the main article the same way you do this page. To add a section, either open the section above where you want to add it and add it at the end, or edit the entire article. Use the equals sign to denote the section header (in this case, Fixed Goofs), and it automagically shows up in the page table of contents. In addition to the editing help link (near the submit button), you can just use the existing page as an example.

I just checked and I still see it. The easter egg works, though. Now I'm confused.--Cass from Germany 13:19, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Here's another example of this type of thing. Something some see and most don't. No idea why it happens. I don't even know the right questions to ask to find out what's different for you, Cass from Germany. OptimisticFool 17:48, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
I figured it out! With display settings at 32-bit ("highest" on MS Windows, under "color quality"), then his head is fully opaque. Change it to 16-bit, and the head becomes translucent. 21:06, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
I tried that and still no transparency. There must be something else to it. OptimisticFool 04:00, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
Looks like it's a similar glitch to the one I talked about at length over here... didn't really end up figuring out exactly what the problem was, except that it was a problem with something or other at low colour depths... also that it wasn't notable in the article, since it wasn't TBC's fault. --phlip TC 08:50, 17 June 2008 (UTC)


Did he see the airplane that said "Wear A Bikini", or is Strong Sad should I put this...Brianrietta? --Alex H., 12:19, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

...or maybe it's a skin condition, like he said in the toon. Anyways, we have a forum for talking about this sort of thing – we try to reserve these talk pages for talking about the article, not the toon. --phlip TC 12:35, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

The Easter Egg

If you click the XOXO on the post card now you can see the dampening barrel easter egg. -- 13:08, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

The scene with the barrel was there before, but with no audio. In addition to adding the link, they've added audio to it. 13:10, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Non disturbare

When I first saw this, my immediate reaction was, "Holy crap, that's Latin!", and my next most immediate reaction was, "Holy crap, that's not precisely correct Latin!" Upon visiting this article, I find a claim that it's Italian, which I do not doubt is possible. But, given Strong Sad's history, is it not possible that this was merely an amateur attempt at using Latin? A large part of the basis of this belief is that "Depressio" is in fact Latin, and not Italian, for precisely what it sounds like. 14:47, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Seconded. My thoughts exactly, though it seems to me it's probably Italian after all. — (Talk | contribs) 16:53, 16 June 2008 (UTC) (left unsigned)
I added the fact and, trust me, it's Italian. OptimisticFool 17:56, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
The character of the words isn't in doubt. I'm sure it is correct Italian. My only question is whether it was intended to be Italian or Latin, since both of those words also exist in Latin, with the same spelling. Say somebody makes a typographical error and types "base" instead of "bass". "Base" is a word, and can belong to the same word class as "bass", so it might make sense. But is it not reasonable to suppose that, since he was just talking about guitars or drums, he actually meant "bass"? An error that, by accident, is correct in some way may not be what the author intended. I'm not saying it's definitely Latin; I just think there's reasonable doubt -- as there is a precedent, however minute, of Strong Sad knowing some Latin that, to my knowledge, doesn't have any parallels for Italian. 04:40, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Wii Promblems

This toon got...murdered by my Wii. When I tried to watch it on the Internet Channel, a whole ton of stuff was missing. Bubs' arms, the buttons for the couch were flying in midair, and all the slides were blank. SuperfieldCreditUnion

Seems like another problem caused by TBC publishing the .swf in Flash 8. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 19:16, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Mirror the old?

Any interest in putting the pre-finished file on a mirror? I still have it on my hard drive if it's wanted. OptimisticFool 18:00, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

I bury myself alive on tuesdays?

Could Strong Sad burying himself alive be reference to Sickly Sam Burying himself alive in That A Ghost? 20X6 GEM 20:54, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

I doubt it. It's probably just because Strong Sad is a depressing character. -PeterImage:Petersig.png

Teh Cheatzrs

If The Cheat is heard laughing at one point, shouldn't he at least get a credit for a voice appearance in the toon? Dementedc 14:31, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Removed. I at least can't hear Teh C., and its probably just part of H*R, Bubs, or Strong Bad's laughs. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 14:36, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. My point was just that since we can apparently hear him, he should be credited. I can't confirm that we can hear him, though. Dementedc 14:37, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
