I am... astonished... at how much is wrong with her sentiment.
1960's: Steampunk1880's: Dinosaurs
My next computer will be steam-powered!
I'm going to stop reading this comic before it drives me to suicide... probably.
I have to hope she was being flippant otherwise I'll go mad at just how wrong that comment is...
My favourite part is the "back to using" bit, like at some point it actually happened.
I suppose this means that punk-rock was a retro-movement, trying to recreate the spirit of the original steam-punks but using uhm, rocks and maybe some electricity?
peace, love, and steam.
Ya'll don't remember steam-powered robots? And jet packs? And the sky being filled with balloon airships?!
Everyone knows that jet-packs are powered by diesel, not a coal-burning steam-engine. Seriously, jet-packs are so 1970s!
Wow, who needs coffee when you can wake up to stupid like this in the morning?
Oh my, I remember the 60's:Flower Power, tie-dye, bellbottoms, free love, Sir Jimmy Hendrix bringing down the opera house and steam powered clanks roaming the countryside fighting our wars for us. This was all in Europe of coarse, as America hadn't been discovered yet.My, my how time flies when you don't know what the fuck you're talking about.
I'm amazed you didn't dive over the counter and smack her.
How do you resist bursting in laughter after hearing something like this??
Don't know how it would effect the energy crisis, but switching to steampunk technology would definitely make things much more awesome.
It would also make things a lot more sooty. Those steam engines were fueled with coal and wood, remember.
Now I really want to read a Steampunk comic set in the 1960s...
Needs more unobtanium.
Humanity has reached its nadir.
brb, commiting suicide due to the stupid
Maybe she means Transistor-punk.
I have to believe this is a true statement and not her being silly or flippant, because it's the winner of the dumbest thing said this year (so far). It's...beautiful.
How do you not go crazy?
That girl is a genius.

Not transistor punk, that is what we are using now, vacuum tube punk.
