Hey jack, I know you are 18 (you told us). Just because it's legal, doesn't make it right.

snip tool's a bit like print screen, except you manually select the bit you want and then theres a bit where you can draw on it etc
i have also set mine to have a keyboard schortcut - ctrl-alt-s (you do this by r-clicking on the snipping tool in start menu and then clicking on properties)
atm means at the moment

Just copy the "Thumbnail for forums (1)" code on imageshack and paste it in a reply for a thumbnail to appear.
If you want the whole image to appear in a post scroll down on the imageshack page and copy the "Hotlink for forums (1)" code and paste in a reply.

That is just for imageshack.
Though if you have the direct link to an image just use the html code:

<IMG src="http://www.domain.com/image.jpg" />

Where http://www.domain.com/image.jpg is an actual image url.

Jack:) the reading test was a real eye opener. Who knew we're all fluent in garbleese!

I'm still trying to figure out how to post links and pics. Thought I would practice here. Let me know if this works.

ya it worked and to post pics. goto www.photobucket.com make an account then upload the picture then when you are done with that there will be a thing that looks like this:

then you copy the html code and paste in the box on here.

I always use the IMG code (by the way, you load it by just left clicking on the code). The IMG posts the picture direcly in lieu of a link. You only have to watch the size a bit, but in Photobucket you can resize the picture. If it's a full fledged picture, it gets kind of big. 640x480 is a good size. Just click on the picture once it is in your Album, then you get the resize option (and other options) above the picture.

Bug-zilla, very funny. I tried to post a picture here from photobucket. I can't seem to get the picture from there to here. (and I was doing so well with the links and all:)

all that you should have to do is click in the box with the code then come here and do ctrl + v to paste it in. i like to use the html code to do it.

Hi techgranny, jack is right. There is hardly anything you can do wrong. After you uploaded the picture, left click on the code (it should turn yellow) - either Html or IMG depending what you prefer. Then right click and paste it into your post as if it were a piece of text (it is actually like a string of text). Only after you "send post" will it become a picture. Maybe that was your problem - you never sent it. It is like Links that you paste into a post, they only turn blue after posting.

it's because the square root of -1 is an invalid number so you wouldn't be able to see it.

It's an imaginary number, not an "invalid" one. See, the cartoon is even funnier that way but only to people who have taken a lot of math class.
Jack, stay in school -- you're not done yet. :P

It took me a minute when I first saw that picture but I figured out it was the invisible number too.
Though I'm still missing the part of the joke of how the 8 can see the invisible number but the 2 and 3 can't. It seems like they both wouldn't be able to it.

u havent seen it before because it came out today! (i can never miss them because i have it as in my homepage tabs)
jack, if ur gonna make it ur homepage, you have to fiddle with it slightly, coz the newest picture on the website is www.(whatever the website is)/1219 (number)
however,
if u type: www.(website)/new it will always work
to cut a long story short, go onto ur internet options, click on the homepage bit and copy in this: http://www.explosm.net/comics/new/
if u just put this in address bar, load up page and then click homepage thing, it wont work!
so copy what i said in instead http://www.explosm.net/comics/new/

EDIT:(that took way to long to type!)
