  1. Mind control?

    If the person who was controlled does not realize they have been controlled, then they may disregard the whole incident.  There are plenty of times when a person might do something they normally wouldn't do.

    But if the person who was controlled eventually does realize how they were enchanted, coerced, swindled, or tricked, then the previously controlled person can become extremely resentful.

    According to the Gregorian calendar, April 11th, 1241 was a Thursday

    Interesting trick, considering that Pope Gregory XIII did not introduce that calendar until 1582.

    Besides, if a ravaging Mongolian horde says that it is Tuesday, are you really going to argue?


  3. 10 April

    1866 – The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) is founded in New York City by Henry Bergh.  It's fun to stay at the A-S-P-C-A!

    1916 – The Professional Golfers' Association of America (PGA) is created in New York City.  Good to know that with the world wrapped up in the Great War, those who play Golf professionally still have time to see to the important issues.

    1971 – Ping-pong diplomacy: In an attempt to thaw relations with the United States, China hosts the U.S. table tennis team for a week-long visit.  Because there is no sport more central to the American psyche than Ping-Pong.

    1972 – Tombs containing bamboo slips, among them Sun Tzu's Art of War and Sun Bin's lost military treatise, are accidentally discovered by construction workers in Shandong.  Please, folks, return your books to the library before you're buried.  Can you even imagine what the fine on those late returns would be?

    2019 - Scientists from the Event Horizon Telescope project announce the first ever image of a Black Hole, located in the centre of the M87 galaxy.  Apologies to Albert Einstein.  Even though your Theory of General Relativity predicted their existence, you continued to assert throughout your life that nature would not actually create such a bizarre structure.  Well, now we have the evidence.  Still, how many of the rest of us could even begin to investigate cosmological principles that so fundamentally challenged our own world view?


  4. So the various characters in EGS represent different aspects of the author's personality or the personalities of other people the author has known?

    Seriously though, this is part of why I find writing so difficult.  I can not imagine my way into another person's mind.  And I am terrified by what I find in my own head.

     

     


  5. Background radiation assures that nearly every living thing on Earth has trace amounts of radioactive materials within it at any time.  Mostly the heavier isotopes of carbon.  Although potassium is sufficiently radioactive to fuel atomic banana conspiracy theorists.

    The question to me is what biological advantage would an organism gain from having a level of radioactive material within them that would be hazardous to other life forms around them?

    While there has technically only ever been one Alfred, he did die once, at which point Aunt Harriet temporarily replaced him. He also lost a hand once, and has been in many battles with home invaders.

    ... temporary? He died once, then got better? Why it doesn't surprise me?

    Alfred Pennyworth is British.  A healthy Brit can be turned into a Newt and get better.


  7. Knowing that your boss does crazy fantastic things on the job and actually experiencing those things really are two different, well, things.

    Still, Sarah may want to consider the option of staying in the mansion.

    Consider this, how many Robins has Batman used up over the years?  Compare that to how many Alfreds have been delivered to Stately Wayne Manor...


  8. Is (Insert EGS Character) LGBT? - Maybe to Yes.

    Why is (Insert EGS Character) LGBT?  - Sorry.  That's another comic.  Today's comic is for awkward poses and fanservice.

    Maybe Dan's hinting that in the future, all the characters are in one big polyweb?

    Or perhaps it is simply the philosophy of "Love The One You're With"?


  9. She WANTS to read the instructions?

    Where is the fun in that?

    "Whoops, I suddenly somehow became taller and shorter simultaneously."

    So are you a Short Giant or a Tall Dwarf?

    ...so someone could probably use the scales to shrink themselves to get better at math

    Of course shrinking will help your math skills.  Concepts like Fractions, Decimals, Quantum Mechanics, and Infinitesimals are easier to understand if you can observe them in their natural habitat.
