Congratulations on your Century! 

I have just read Skizz again, and (this might be the Brummie in me talking) I'm thinking this is the equal, if not the best thing Alan Moore ever did.  Comics perfection!

Also reread "The Time Machine", my favourite of all Alan Moore's shorts for Tharg - I feel like I shouldnt't like it - the message is a bit.... grim at best?  But I think it is just beautiful and sad and totally wrong for a kids comic, which is what makes it exactly right for 2000AD

Fox - set robo-tearducts to maximum capacity!

Indeed. The referendum was a specific request of a Citizens' Assembly, which interestingly approved the proposal by almost exactly the same 2:1 split as the real referendum. And the beauty of a binding referendum on a written constitution is that you can see exactly the wording you're voting for, stripped of spin. About as real an example of democracy as you could ask for.

My favourite bit might be the John Titor reference.

Well, I enjoyed the hell out of that. No expectations going in, but that was a HUGE amount of fun. I’ll happily watch a couple more of those…

Maybe the Irish vote is a step in the right direction, but I don't think so. If government can do the right thing today then that's fine but, while it has the perceived power to make such decisions....

It was a referendum. It was our decision.  The referendum was a result of lobbying by the people, not a whim of the government.  But in any case, it's very much a step in the right direction.

Anyone able to call the girl with the bike?

Once you click through three pages of hentai, Google suggests school girl + satchel + red bike = The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Hawkmumbler can confirm.

Back on safer, old-man territory:

Oh Sharky, I love ya baby ‘offers a Tootsie Pop’ but sometimes you can’t see the forrest for trees.

Systemic mysogyny runs much deeper than the government.

... the kid with the baseball cap (is) surely an alt-verse Ash Ketchum and Pikachu...?

As Tomwe says, that's the kid from Flight Of The Navigator. You're not missing anything.

D'oh! Course it is.
