unlike many 16 year olds in 2009, i was reading Godel Escher Bach and not Homestuck, but it doesnt matter! because the two works are actually IDENTICAL in purpose, scope, and quality, both having exactly the same universal acclaim that derives from the effort-justification of having to finish chapter upon chapter of poorly-executed cultural references, interspersed with silly pictures and endless-but-ultimately-pointless dialogues between four characters
