    I wish I could tell you that it gets easier as you get older and gain experience. *sigh* At least, the lead time I have on you hasn’t made it easier. So much for that accumulation of wisdom crap.

    I found that the best relationships just kind of happen; I’ve never been out on a ‘date’ to get to know someone as a potential partner, but I’ve got a wife and a girlfriend who both love me. (They like each other pretty well, too, which certainly helps.) Once I stopped worrying about ‘finding someone’ for the purpose of forging a deep companionship, I became more open to possibilities. I’m not suggesting you ‘give up’–or that what happened to me wasn’t mostly luck–but it couldn’t hurt to see if a friendship you already have can develop a few more connections, and to let those connections happen if they’re going to.You’re free to reject that advice if you’re the kind of person who finds it too awkward for friends to become lovers, but in my experience it’s easier to build upon a solid foundation than to try and construct one all by yourself.

    Magikarp can’t really speak and it’s a fish Pokemon, so all it can do on land is flop around. “Herp derp” is basically supposed to represent the speach of a mentaly retarded person.So the girl summoned Magikarp to ask for advice, but Magikarp was just flopping around.  And she then think that to impress the guy she needs to flop around like a fish on land. The “herp derp” is there to make it clear what a stupid idea that is.

    You just need a David Attenborough voiceover: “Mating Ritiuals of the Midwestern Geek.”

    It’s the guy who’s really weird on the last panel. He leaves an impression he’s got a collection of butcher’s knives at home (and maybe the butcher’s ears in the freezer).

    Just tell him/her. It’s 2011… They’ll probably appreciate that this sassy lass is interested. And if not – well: at least you will know! Go for it Jen(and now we want to know how it’s working out too…)

    I always figured, “If you’re not even friends, what’s the point?”But that’s just me.

    Level 20 I presume. However the trick is getting to level 20. Although I have seen a level 99 magikarp flail wipe build. That was pretty hilarious to watch.

  9. Svlad Cjelli says

    You can fairly trivially capture level 70 Magikarp now-a-days. And Rare Candy is handed out like …Candy.

    Isn’t the whole ‘herp derp’ thing kinda, well, ableist? It’s people making fun of the way they think people with intellectual disabilities sound isn’t it?

    Jen, with your scientific scholastic achievements, your insightful social commentary, and occasional speech invitations, it’s hard for me to believe that the roles aren’t often reversed.  Look for the guys who are flopping.
