All those disappointed by the recent vote of the General Synod will appreciate today's Matt cartoon.

I'm trying to find an xkcd cartoon. Someone is locked out, and is trying a number of technologically-advanced and esoteric ways of getting in touch with their flatmate; but hasn't thought to ring the doorbell. Any ideas?

ETA: Now solved, by the estimable [livejournal.com profile] ladyofastolat.

ETA: And, for that matter, today's Alex

ETA: Or you can just buy a really cheap piece of "Tolkien" artwork ...

I have voted. I took [livejournal.com profile] adaese to the station this morning, then drove back to the polling station, then onto work.

This is by no means my earliest vote. One year - it was probably 1992 - I was queueing outside the polling station when it opened at 7am. We were shown that the ballot boxes were empty before they were sealed.

There were eight candidates in our constituency, which is a new one, and which is thought to be a three-way marginal. The last candidate on the list was "Vote zero none of the above".

I refer you to today's Matt cartoon:

And, for that matter, to today's Alex cartoon:

Please vote!

Did someone post (a link to) a cartoon about two nerds playing chess-cum-D&D a few days ago? Could someone re-post it, or send me a link?

Now found - thanks, [livejournal.com profile] malaheed.
