I found the comic very amusing but I can't imagine stream of consciousness style comments. I don't really put "notes" into my code. To me they are documentation (meant for other people to read -- not me). I may use "//TODO:" tags from time to time, but generally I never actually get around do doing todo notes... it it wasn't important to get the code working than... well if I get to it I get to it.
Funny thing is... for my personal projects, this may not be a bad idea. I mean when I work in Mathematica* my "programs" actually end up looking more and more like reports for school. I like this style, and yet I never use anything close to it when programming in C or Java.
*Mathematica's notebooks are more like editing a word document and adding in code.
