  1. This Day In History

    So, you're saying, it took four tries, but they finally got it right? Not any more. Scientific method: Hypothesis: Jews cause earthquakes. Test: Eliminate Jews. Result: Two years pass, no more earthquakes, hypothesis confirmed. Everything there wants to kill you, though. This is valuable information. I will have to scare up a Toronto newspaper if I ever need to bail out of here. Yes, this is why being a "helicopter parent" is a bad thing.

    It would have been funnier if he drank it.

    I've heard this rumor. I have yet to see major examples. Do you know of any? I have seen people clean up their act on a temporary basis. I have seen them keep it up for months. A few months. The truly transformative changes I've seen tend toward the negative. They tend to involve either traumatic events pushing someone into a dark place or restraint being removed and someone dropping a facade they've been wearing for years. <shrug>, I hope you're right. Well, of course it is. That's why it's so sad when no one chooses that option. Again, counterexamples are welcome. That is definitely true. I'd add that often drama is added by those with no horse in the race.

    Arguing with her 12 year old self in the mirror was a turning point. I prefer the new Diane character, she's interesting; the previous one was shallow. It still feels like an abrupt turn that real humans don't make without a lot of drama.

    Culturally, those of us who remember the pen and paper version as being more mainstream are dinosaurs; it is quite the anomaly today. I am at a board game convention this weekend; there are hundreds of attendees. There are thousands, perhaps millions, in our metro area that couldn't care less as they play their video games.

    All of EGS is about the least sexual comic around. Any hypothetical sex is implied, ambiguous, and off screen, like a pre-1960s romatic comedy. (Actually, more so; they had Fade to Black.) Any nuditity is covered up by arms, birds, or whatever else is handy. There's no EGS Slipshine; if Dan has drawn anything like that' he's kept it private. I'm not seeing the game parodies as a whole lot different in that regard. Why would you think that specifically would be an issue?

    Dan has been consistent with cleaning up most of the folks who have exhibited a negative side, as if they changed that drastically in maturing. Original Diane vs current Diane is the most blatant example, but there are plenty of others. It is, in fact, the feature I least like about the comic, because to me it seems unrealistic; real people are stubborn about changing their ways. My experience says that we are cast in a mold derived from both of our parents and our early upbringing, and we will drag that baggage around with us for life. Case in point, my parents were both pack rats, and I'm a pack rat. I've had harsh circumstances that are helping me overcome that, but each step is painful. My current hurdle is books, most specifically text books. I should probably get rid of a hundred. I don't want to. Perhaps it's me; maybe I'm overly negative in my outlook. Obviously, I don't think so, but that's looping back to my point, isn't it? So, sorry, Pollyanna, but if you're right, I'm not seeing it, and I'm not likely to change my view. (I'm not accusing anyone of having a Pollyanna point of view, except maybe Dan, so if you have trouble parsing that, it's "hypothetical Pollyanna".) To be fair, EGS takes place in a different universe; maybe the flexible responses of the people are a result of being from somewhere else and not being exactly human. So, my point with all of this is, I don't think the "Considering the temptation they face, it's definitely weird that instead of them getting more and more corrupted by it, we tend to see the opposite effect" is a result of Dan maturing; I feel it's the opposite; I think it is a point of naivety on his part that he could potentially mature out of.

    My theory is the Munch figure had seen the Dali watches melting.
  10. Things You Find Amusing

    Not your usual spin on, "I had my Explorer fixed."
  11. Things that make you sad.

    Yeah, well, when many heroes of my youth are in their eighties, this will happen, all too regularly. I'm in, "The last cast member of a show or movie I liked, or the last band member of a band I liked, has past away" territory. Oh, dear, I read the Wiki article, and his passing sounds like a mercy; the end of his life was not fun for him.
  12. The Weather.

    Oh, we get our fair share here; northern part of southern US, but it rains a #%@&-ton (or metric #%@&-ton, if you prefer), and we get frequent January weather hovering around freezing. To be fair, it does not generally get much worse than that; hitting the teens is unusual, even at night. But, on the down side, we get more ice than snow. It is not unusual for freezing rain to take down a power line or two.

    Of course, Elliot has already done his own personal version, so it's not exactly new to the party ...

    Also, replace "wolf" with "rabid schnauzer".
