    This is... That is to say.... What I mean to.... Ok. I don't get it.
  2. This Day In History

    11 December 861 – Assassination of the Abbasid caliph al-Mutawakkil by the Turkish guard, who raise al-Muntasir to the throne. Start of the "Anarchy at Samarra". Killed by your own guards. A quite common cause of death among monarchs and other politicians throughout history. 969 – Byzantine Emperor Nikephoros II Phokas is assassinated by his wife Theophano and her lover, the later Emperor John I Tzimiskes. Killed by your relatives and "loved ones". Practically a requirement for this to show up in every ruling dynasty at least once. 1282 – Battle of Orewin Bridge: Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, the last native Prince of Wales, is killed at Cilmeri, near Builth Wells, in mid-Wales. Killed in battle. It lacks the personal touch found in some other methods of regicide. But if your side wins despite your death, it practically guarantees you an equestrian statue. 1792 – French Revolution: King Louis XVI of France is put on trial for treason by the National Convention. Monsieur Capet, it does not mater how you plead, what kind of deal you may offer, what evidence you may present, or how you may argue your case. You will soon demonstrate yet another unpleasant way for a king to lose his crown. (In your case, by losing a place to wear it.) 1931 – HEY YOU GUYS!!! It's Rita Moreno's Birthday. 1931 – Statute of Westminster 1931: The British Parliament establishes legislative equality between the UK and the Dominions of the Commonwealth—Australia, Canada, Newfoundland, New Zealand, South Africa, and Ireland. Does this mean that the Dominions are now independent and sovereign states or is this a symbolic shift that maintains London's control over the Colonies in a slightly less direct manner? Yes. One point that bears stating is that the various Dominions must now agree on matters of royal succession. But how often would that question arise? 1936 – Abdication Crisis: Edward VIII's abdication as King of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions beyond the Seas, and Emperor of India, becomes effective. This required signing fifteen separate abdication notices the previous day. Introduced as "Prince Edward", the former King delivers an address to the people on BBC, then leaves the country. So it is at least possible for a King to no longer be King, and still remain alive. 1941 – World War II: Germany and Italy declare war on the United States, following the Americans' declaration of war on the Empire of Japan in the wake of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The United States, in turn, declares war on them. I would ask what Hitler and Mussolini were thinking when they did that, but I really don't want to think like them. 1964 – Che Guevara speaks at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City. Someone who has never been identified fires a mortar shell at the UN building while he is speaking. Apparently firing mortar shells is common enough in the Big Apple that no one notices who shoots them. 1968 – The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus, featuring the Rolling Stones, Jethro Tull, the Who, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull, and the Dirty Mac with Yoko Ono, is filmed in Wembley, London. A shame they couldn't book any big names for the gig. 1972 – Apollo 17 officially becomes the sixth and last Apollo mission to land on the Moon. The Secret missions to the moon continue with the next 1978 – The Lufthansa heist is committed by a group led by Lucchese family associate Jimmy Burke. It was the largest cash robbery ever committed on American soil, at that time. $5 Million in cash, $875,000 in jewelry. The driver of a van used in the heist leaves it parked in a "No Parking" zone where it is discovered by police. This leads to the identification, arrest, or deaths of most of the major players. The problem with being a criminal mastermind is that you must rely on other criminals who are not masterminds. Also, in 2003, the UN General Assembly declared 11 December to be International Mountain Day. So give mountains to all your friends and relatives.

    Should we be impressed, surprised, or disappointed that in an EGS story involving transformations, it took nearly two months to get to the first shrinking?
  4. Story Monday, December 10, 2018

    The remarkable thing is that less than a year ago, comic time, Grace was a controlled substance. Completely unavailable Over-The-Counter or Non-Prescription.
  5. Things you have no idea how to feel about

    Berserker Nurses are frequently unionized. So you should only need to wait until the coffee break. Interns, on the other hand, are often desperate, overworked, sleep deprived, and malnourished. Most of them are not professional berserkers, they just get that way.
  6. This Day In History

    09 December 480 – Odoacer, first King of Italy, occupies Dalmatia. The Western Roman Empire has gone to the dogs. 1531 – The Virgin of Guadalupe first appears to Juan Diego at Tepeyac, Mexico City. On a hill that was the site of a shrine to a much loved Aztec mother goddess who was venerated each year on the winter solstice... Does this seem a bit familiar? 1793 – New York City's first daily newspaper, the American Minerva, is established by Noah Webster. Feel pity for any editor who lets a spelling error make it to press. 1851 – The first YMCA in North America is established in Montreal. The founding members include a police officer, a construction worker, and an Indian 1935 – Student protests in Beiping (now Beijing)'s Tiananmen Square, dispersed by government. Seems harsh for a simple student protest. I'm sure nothing like this will happen again. 1946 – The "Subsequent Nuremberg trials" begin with the "Doctors' trial", prosecuting physicians and officers alleged to be involved in Nazi human experimentation and mass murder under the guise of euthanasia. But they had a prescription... 1950 – Cold War: Harry Gold is sentenced to 30 years in jail for helping Klaus Fuchs pass information about the Manhattan Project to the Soviet Union. His testimony is later instrumental in the prosecution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. Eventually he would be paroled 1965. If you want small offenders to turn against big offenders, you normally need to offer them something more than half off a thirty year sentence. 1953 – Red Scare: General Electric announces that all communist employees will be discharged from the company. Because a worker's opinion about politics or the state's role in economic planning and social welfare matters far more than their ability as an engineer or technician. 1960 – The first episode of Coronation Street, the world's longest-running television soap opera, is broadcast in the United Kingdom. Still not as entertaining as the real life soap opera in Britain punctuated by actual Coronations. 1962 – The Petrified Forest National Park is established in Arizona. Do we need to rake this forest as well? 1965 – Kecksburg UFO incident: A fireball is seen from Michigan to Pennsylvania; witnesses report something crashing in the woods near Pittsburgh. Official word from NASA is that it was a Soviet satellite that burned up while reentering the atmosphere at an odd angle, and the other NASA documents related to this were "lost". There is speculation that NASA never had those documents in the first place because the civilian NASA investigators at the time may have been military investigators in plain clothes presenting themselves as NASA. 1965 – A Charlie Brown Christmas, first in a series of Peanuts television specials, debuts on CBS. A simply animated special lamenting the commercialization of Christmas becomes simply the most commercially successful animated Christmas special ever. 1968 – Douglas Engelbart gave what became known as "The Mother of All Demos", publicly debuting the computer mouse, hypertext, and the bit-mapped graphical user interface using the oN-Line System (NLS). And he didn't even need to show a funny cat video. 1973 – British and Irish authorities sign the Sunningdale Agreement in an attempt to establish a power-sharing Northern Ireland Executive and a cross-border Council of Ireland. A vocal, and potentially violent, faction refuses to accept that the majority in Northern Ireland would rather remain associated with Britain instead of Ireland. But this should straighten itself out before too long. 1979 – The eradication of the smallpox virus is certified, making smallpox the first of only two diseases that have been driven to extinction (rinderpest in 2011 being the other). Of all the species humans have driven to extinction, only two have been diseases? We weren't even trying to eliminate the Passenger Pigeon. Thylacine was gone before we realized it was disappearing. And we can't do the same thing to Escherichia coli? 2008 – The Governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich, is arrested by federal officials for crimes including attempting to sell the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by President-elect Barack Obama. And we thought this kind of politics had ended in Illinois with the death of the Capone era. Also, 09 December is Anna's Day. The day to start the preparation process of the lutefisk to be consumed on Christmas Eve, as well as a Swedish name day, celebrating all people named Anna. (Sweden and Finland). Just in case there are any health concerns, The Wisconsin Employees' Right to Know Law specifically exempts lutefisk in defining "toxic substances". It may seem fishy, but you can't lye about this kind of tradition.
  7. This Day In History

    08 December 877 – Louis the Stammerer (son of Charles the Bald) is crowned king of the West Frankish Kingdom at Compiegne. Eventually Europe would decide to simply add Roman Numerals to identify monarchs with the same name rather than rely on the comments of a elementary history class. 1912 – Leaders of the German Empire hold an Imperial War Council to discuss the possibility that war might break out. Spoiler Alert: War might break out. 1914 – World War I: A squadron of Britain's Royal Navy defeats the Imperial German East Asia Squadron in the Battle of the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic. War broke out. 1922 – Northern Ireland ceases to be part of the Irish Free State. A vocal, and potentially violent faction, refuses to accept that the majority in Northern Ireland would rather remain associated with Britain instead of Ireland. But this should straighten itself out before too long. 1941 – World War II: While attacking Pearl Harbor on December 07, on the other side of the International Date Line Japanese forces simultaneously invade Shanghai International Settlement, Malaya, Thailand, Hong Kong, the Philippines, and the Dutch East Indies. and 1941 – World War II: Again east of the International Date Line, Japan declares war against the United States and the British Empire. This declaration would be reprinted in Japanese newspapers on the 8th of every month until the end of the war. and 1941 – World War II: U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt declares December 7 to be "a date which will live in infamy", after which the U.S. declares war on Japan. later Winston Churchill would question the wisdom of Japan when they decided to simultaneously declare war on both the British Empire and the United States. A good answer to that question has yet to be found. 2013 – Metallica performs a show in Antarctica, making them the first band to perform on all 7 continents. So which band will be the first to perform on all 8 planets of the Solar System? And I do mean PLANETS. Not asteroids. Not Moons (the Europa and Enceladus concerts will NOT count). Not Dwarf worlds (Pluto was always a Mickey Mouse planet anyway).
  8. The Association Game

    Now I am imagining palm trees with coconuts that resemble the head of Patrick Stewart
  9. Things you have no idea how to feel about

    I just need to ask. Are modern Nordic hospitals anything like what is pictured in this week's Scandinavia and the World? https://satwcomic.com/off-to-the-rave
  10. Story Friday December 07, 2018

    Most importantly, Sam must find out about this procedure and invitation through an actual accident.
  11. NP Friday December 07, 2018

    http://egscomics.com/egsnp/nanasecraft-23 In a story about Nanase Craft, we pause for suggestive poses and a rehash of Dan's comments by Mall Elliot. Apples? That is all it takes to get Elliot to do ridiculous things? I seem to recall another story where a certain woman wanted to eat an apple...
  12. Story Friday December 07, 2018

    http://egscomics.com/comic/tsos-12 And now we see Grace's internal dialogue. We have been aware of the Hippie Grace for almost as long as we have known her. But how do we classify the other side? This is an aspect of Grace I would like to see explored.
  13. NP Wednesday Dec 5, 2018

    This is supposed to be a game parody,. But Mall Elliot's appearance reminds me of some great movie scenes. The Historian in Holy Grail The Criminologist in Rocky Horror Criswell in Plan 9 In Classical Greek theatre, the chorus would narrate much of the story instead of having the thespians act out every scene. In silent pictures, title cards were vital to advancing or explaining the action. In our world of "Show and Tell", we have become too dependent upon the Show. I want more Tell.
  14. This Day In History

    06 December 1790 – The U.S. Congress moves from New York City to Philadelphia. We're goin' hoppin', we're goin' hoppin' today Where things are poppin' the Philadelphia way We're gonna drop in on all the music they play On the bandstand (bandstand) 1884 – The Washington Monument in Washington, D.C., is completed. When the city was being planned, there was supposed to be an equestrian statue of George Washington due south of the Executive Mansion and due east of the Capitol. How this became an Egyptian obelisk that took a century to complete is a tribute to the power of petty partisanship. 1897 – London becomes the world's first city to host licensed taxicabs. What? Why would anyone want transportation regulated? Isn't having a vehicle all you need to take passengers for hire? 1904 – Theodore Roosevelt articulated his "Corollary" to the Monroe Doctrine, stating that the U.S. would intervene in the Western Hemisphere should Latin American governments prove incapable or unstable. It's a good thing Teddy cleared this up. With only James Monroe's original Doctrine, some one might have thought we expected Latin America to take care of itself. 1912 – The Nefertiti Bust is discovered. Just a reminder, whenever you pose for a portrait, make sure the results are as accurate and attractive as possible. You never know which of your portraits will survive over three thousand years into the future. 1957 – Project Vanguard: A launchpad explosion of Vanguard TV3 thwarts the first United States attempt to launch a satellite into Earth orbit. A chemical rocket launch is a series of controlled explosions. Apparently, the "Controlled" part is more critical than first estimated.
  15. Things you have no idea how to feel about

    Justice does not exist. There is nothing humans have done, individually or collectively, that makes us worthy of our dogs. https://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/181202214919-george-hw-bush-labrador-sully-exlarge-169.jpg
