Huh? When the Joneses have more than you, you are a failure? Who cares about the Joneses? Who cares about how much stuff anybody has? The person who dies with the most toys wins? I don't get it. Are you being ironic? Sorry if I'm dense. Please explain.
geektieguy:The answer to you question lies in the phrase "keeping up with the Joneses". Try Wikipedia.
Keeping up with the Joneses.(Hm. I wonder if we'll ever get a chart diagramming something with 'reliance on WikiPedia.')
XKCD had a good one on The Problem with Wikipedia recently.
Ah, the prisoner's dilemma... Always good to see some game theory.
morbid:I know what "Keeping up with the Joneses" means. What I was trying to understand was why Jessica would post a diagram illustrating it, thereby seemingly advocating that "Keeping up with the Joneses" has any practical value in life or is something worth doing.So, Jessica? Why the diagram?
I don't claim to speak for her or anything, but in my opinion: Just because she did a comic on something doesn't insinuate (to me) that she advocates that thing or thinks it valid. I think it's odd to blast an artist for a joke. Maybe it was just that; a joke.-Jeffool
Jeffool:Got it. Thanks for putting me straight. Sorry if I was coming off as blasting.I guess I didn't get the joke, and thus the joke's on me.
