made with ms paint, i did not create the robots or stv logo they were borrowed from around the web to make up the theme. all dialogue/text was made by me.

Edit: spent a couple more hrs on my comic this morning, made first picture text easier to read with darker gray letters also added more content that i should of had their in the first place if i wasn't trying to rush my entry last night in a bid to get some sleep. hope the edit is okay with the TR staff if not let me know so i can revert it back.
this is the final cut hope you enjoy.

I made this entirely on paint. I'm no artist but I tried my best. It's a story about "Bob" who dream of a powerful pc then something miraculous happens.
If the image isn't displaying properly, zoom out if that doesn't work, I uploaded it to imgur under the title Final Gam3sTr's Comic Revision. I can't post links yet.
Left to right flow. Hope you enjoy it! Fingers crossed but good luck and have fun everyone! This is the final edition

I'm disqualified for being in the wrong country, but I have ten minutes to kill whilst my dinner is in the oven and this looks fun:

Ooooo you said not to just photoshop or do something political.

Rules said original but not new, so here is a comic I made a year back.

The Evolution of the REMOTE/MY Thoughts
In the beginning the mind is idle and care free with no worries in sight. Then all of sudden it start to think and think until that's all it can do. Then poof out of all that thinking came the miracle of television. A modern marvel that was not in every home. As the popularity grew they became more affordable. Soon televisions in homes multiplied. And laziness began. Some were lucky enough to experience the FIRST TV REMOTE 'KIDS'. The closest one had to turn channels when needed. As the kids got older they try not to be the closest. But in some house holds that didn't work. Lazy parents call their kids from the next room or even another floor to turn channel. These 'Remotes' turn into 'Universal Remotes'. They can take out the trash, wash the dishes, cut the grass and many other little odd things. Once you get your own 'Universal Remote' you will experience many mixed emotions but if you are like most REGRET is not one.

KIDS the best UNIVERSAL REMOTE

Back in high school I loved the content despair.com came up with, so I decided to model my entry in that fashion. Look and read carefully. Enjoy!

Heh...;) That really makes sense seeing as how AMD has already stated for the record that Zen is taped out and has met every single pre-announced goal they had for it--you know, like the 40% IPC improvement they mention constantly--40% that has nothing to do with manufacturing process but is simply the result of the architecture changes. One of those changes is AMD's brand of SMT--kind of weird, isn't it, that AMD's cpus have done as well as they have against Intel's *without* SMT in the architecture? There's also AMD's dramatic cache improvement taking the latency way down, making for a much faster cache. I somehow doubt if you've given the issue much thought, however. OK, take a long look at what SMT has done for Intel's performance and then add at least 40% in for IPC improvents across the board for AMD's FX 8xxx line of cpus. (Then add in another 10%-20% for process-related performance gain--you know, stuff like 14nms & higher clocks, etc., very possibly.)

You are probably going to have rewrite your bar chart...most definitely...;)

But...I did think your entry was pretty funny, even though it is bollocks, of course...!...;)
