This is very close to an actual conversation I had with someone. I am sad for the world.
TEXT OF COMIC:
That is SOOOO not how cold fusion is supposed to work.
Can we ever watch any science fiction movie without you nit-picking?
How is nit-picking a bad thing? What are you supposed to do if you have nits? Just sit there and let them keep making your head itch?
What are you talking about? What do you mean, “nits”?
Don’t tell me you don’t even know where the phrase “nit-picking” came from. A nit is the egg or larva of a louse.
What’s a louse?
Singular of lice!! You know what lice are, don’t you?
I didn’t know it had a singular.
Seriously, are people forgetting whole chunks of the English language as every year goes by?
We need to make room in our heads for all the internet memes.
