YES! The only trouble is that it's gotten hard to find a browser that will render it properly, especially because of the way newer ones blow up images. Chrome, for instance, has no way to force nearest-neighbor interpolation in CSS, which hampers efforts to "port" it to modern browser standards.
413b? ...There's a Homestuck joke in here somewhere.
Kyubey heard Madoka call him her enemy and the enemy of all humanity, and his immediate response was to keep trying to make her omnipotent. That's, like, the definition of your eyes being bigger than your stomach.
Abh? I've read that name... is that — ooh! "Lafiel"! Crest of the Stars, right? One of the more recent "classic" anime additions to my to-watch list. I need to get to work on that list...
Doctorow also wrote a novel called For the Win a few years back that's basically about gold farmers unionizing.

I specified "in GEB terms" (Gödel, Escher, Bach) for a reason. I don't think the system in that book uses disjunction introduction, and I haven't studied the more standard formal systems.
The joke probably would've been funnier if you'd said "eat" instead of "see."
