I don't know how to interpret the "This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it." on the List of sexually active popes wiki page. 141.101.104.224 10:19, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

They're asking you to become a pope, and be sexually active. Then you can get arrested, and do a helicopter prison escape to start the 'List of helicopter prison escapes involving sexually active popes.' 162.158.26.140 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
It's because we can't know for sure if every single pope is secretly sexually active or if it's just limited to the ones caught red-handed. 141.101.98.5 11:35, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
Another interpretation: seduce the pope. --162.158.85.99 15:39, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
It can also be interpreted as to CONVICT pope of sexual activity. While the "became pope" and "seduce the pope" are funnier, convicting popes may be easier, as you are not limited to current and future ones, but can convict already dead popes after-the-fact by finding new evidence. Or forging some. -- Hkmaly (talk) 16:49, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

Those estimated percentages have a strangely high degree of precision, I'd think limiting them to whole number percentages would do. 141.101.98.58 11:48, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Replacing lightsabers in Star Wars movies may be a reference to this amusing video of the sword fight in The Princess Bride where swords are replaced with light sabers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYVQooRSlzg 173.245.52.69 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

The Jack and Diane remix with one line repeated may be a reference to svantana's brilliant re-do of a Human League number: http://svantana.bandcamp.com/track/you-were-workin-as-a-waitress-in-a-cocktail-bar 108.162.245.109 13:31, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

This is the greatest thing in the history of all remixes. 173.245.54.49 03:01, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
That was the stupidest thing that I have ever exposed my ears to, and I loved every second of it.108.162.216.102 20:14, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

I just took a look on the Wayback Machine, and unfortunately the first and only archive is after the deletion. If anyone knows of any other archive websites....-108.162.215.69 05:30, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Notice that the last successful helicopter prison escape was exactly two years ago.. 162.158.86.35 06:49, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

One thing that this comic brings to the table is that the managing effort to increase productivity usually has a significant (and many times negative) impact on productivity itself. In this graphic, the installation took him nearly 25% of his time. He'd be significantly more productive if he wasn't using any time tracking software at all. 141.101.98.115 14:58, 8 June 2016 (UTC) duartix

I agree that losing productivity on time tracking software is more likely than actually getting some productivity advantage from it. If the things you are doing needs to be done, finding out how long they took won't help. If they are useless, you don't need to find out how much time they take to prove that. -- Hkmaly (talk) 16:49, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
