  1. Random. Just Random.

    In some places in California, “Indecent Exposure” (i.e. having your wang visible) results in being registered as a sex offender for life, including the obligation to notify neighbors whenever you move to a new residence. Apparently going outside without pants on is the moral and legal equivalent of first-degree rape.
  2. Sad news

    People are already snapping up every copy of it on Amazon and ebay.

    So, Catalina just doesn’t get the whole concept of “casual, uncommitted dating”. I can relate somewhat—when I was a teen, I never had the courage to ask a girl out unless I already had a crush on her, so the whole “no emotional involvement” thing didn’t apply to me—and every “no” was heartbreak.
  4. Technology that works or doesn't

    So many people seem to think that is real.
  5. Technology that works or doesn't

    Pushing against a field is perfectly sensible. What we need (and what some theorists posit) is a previously-unnoticed field that has sufficient strength through most of our galaxy that pushing against it can give us a better thrust-per-power ratio than a pure photon rocket (300 Megawatts per Newton).
  6. Technology that works or doesn't

    By the way, the Sun’s magnetic field reverses every 11-12 years—it’s merely that the currently-impending one appears to be the strongest in several decades. We had worse 165 years ago during the 1859 Carrington Event where power lines and telegraph circuits blew out.
  7. Technology that works or doesn't

    Yup, anything that still uses a 32-bit field for UNIX time is gonna rollover and have Y2k style overflow errors.

    I think it is more that Susan and Sarah seem like an Odd Couple at first glance—Sarah doesn’t match Jay’s mental image of the kind of people Susan would get along best with.
  9. New NVMe Drive

    Oh yeah, I remember that the FAT-12 file system couldn’t comprehend volumes larger than 32MB (i.e. a 16-bit count of 512-byte sectors). My family’s first computer with a hard disk was a 286 with a whopping eighty megabytes, which had to be partitioned into three volumes. (This was in 1987.)
  10. Things That Are Just Annoying

    My cats are likewise hiding from the loud explosions.
  11. If it’s double secret, then why are you telling us?
  12. Discussion of Military, real or fictional

    That neck guard looks as though it would restrict peripheral vision for the wearer.
  13. There are rumors that he has been attempting ventriloquism recently, so lip movement may no longer be necessary for him to lie aloud.
  14. Things That Are Just Annoying

    You aren’t. You’re supposed to let them rip you off.

    I could do with less exaggeration of some features on her, but yes.

    The “fish” part is probably there just to indicate that she’s not saying “carp” as an anagram of “crap”. I think that her inability to remember Camden is because the date with him was just not that memorable.

    According to https://www.egscomics.com/comic/hope-059 , Pandora had marked AJ with the spell just for the heck of it.

    Tedd refers to the spell analysis resembling gibberish in panel two here https://www.egscomics.com/comic/hope-076

    Oh, I’m sorry, I thought I was referring to using solar electricity to power the industrial production of synthetic hydrocarbons from CO2 and water in factories.
  20. Random. Just Random.

    Likely also solar powered—solar-electric.

    Diane, being a half-elf, is potentially very powerful magically, but we don’t know how that appears in Luke’s vision. Andrea had also commented that Diane additionally has the talents to be a Vampire Slayer. We do know at present that the Verres/Kitsune clan are Royal-class mages, and that Rhoda also qualifies as Royal-tier.
  22. Random. Just Random.

    Yes, but the concept is that the synthetic hydrocarbons would be produced via capturing carbon from carbon dioxide—if hydrocarbon + oxygen = CO2 + energy, then CO2 + energy = hydrocarbon + oxygen. This makes for a closed cycle.
  23. Discussion of Military, real or fictional

    The irony being that the tank named the “mouse” is the biggest tank ever built.

    Alternatively, they may be classmates of Rhea.
