It's not so clear to me that it's Megan that makes the title comment about "replacing you with older pictures". When I first read it, I thought it's more like something that Cueball would have said, since he's so eager to "mess with Photoshop"... 13:28, 2 October 2013 (UTC)szeryf

Megan is the one who seems happy here, so I think that the existing discussion text is correct on this point. I think this comic is also a more general comment on real vs simulated experiences. For example, do you think it is more fulfilling to have a girlfriend, or to photoshop a girlfriend into existing pictures of you? 06:44, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

Added an explanation of fall. Autumn is only weirdly called that in the US, the rest of the world won't know that. 18:20, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Uhh, ask a Chinese or a German like me, we are also part of the rest of the world outside the US. BTW: in German it's "Herbst", which is close to harvest. --Dgbrt (talk) 19:37, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Clearly I meant the English speaking world. It's only used that way in American. Don't be pedantic. At a guess, if it wasn't for the autmun foliage in the comic, a significant proportion of British people would not have made the association between fall and autumn. 21:49, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Mentioning both words should be enough — keep it simple because everybody will understand. --Dgbrt (talk) 20:44, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Let's be honest here, given the huge amount of American media the English speaking world consumes there are probably very few people who don't know that "Fall" is Americanese for autumn. -Pennpenn 01:03, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
