  1. NP Comic for Tuesday, November 29, 2022

    Same things happen in webcomics. In Twokinds an anonymous and unimportant female tiger among a crowd of tigers did something mildly interesting and got dubbed "Tigress #37" in the forum. She's now the daughter of the feline delegation's leader. And how do we know that wasn't the plan to begin with? Well, there's her now-canon name... Therie Sah-Van.
  2. Comic for Wednesday, November 23, 2022

    Yeah, looking at Canada and Britain lately, I'm skeptical. And with the two-party system, I've often wondered if the two parties were competing to see which could pick the worst candidate. Could be worse, though - we could have a one-party system. (With two parties, one of them will pick the SECOND worst, and that candidate will sometimes win.)
  3. What Are You Ingesting?

    Rather disappointing. 1) only one variety of tea tested (I'm a bit of a tea snob: my regular tea is pu'erh, currently a brick from the 2008 harvest, but for special occasions I have a brick from the 1968 harvest) 2) their time test used only 1, 3, and 5 minutes, and then decided that 3 minutes is optimal - without testing any even or non-integer number of minutes 3) no second-cup time tests (I expect a minimum of 3 good cups from a teaspoon of pu'erh leaves; I assure you that for the second cup, a minute of steeping is much longer than necessary) ---- Here's why not to boil your water in the mug, in the microwave - which they briefly touched on but didn't explain: the inside surface of the glass, china, or glazed ceramic mug is too smooth. The water can super-heat - above boiling - because there are no microscopic irregularities for the vapor bubbles to start forming on. Then you drop in some sweetener or a teabag, or otherwise bring that water into contact with something not as smooth as glass, and it starts boiling everywhere all at once - which bears a passable resemblance to an explosion, and throws above-boiling-hot water in all directions.

    Round dice are actually pretty easy to roll. What's hard is getting them to stop, and then deciding which number is on top.
  5. NP Comic for Tuesday, November 22, 2022

    In fact I strongly recommend NOT looking it up. Just imagine something as horrible as you can, and add 15%.
  6. Political Discussion Thread (READ FIRST POST)

    A SCUD that misses the intended point of impact by a little bit, often still does the job. An anti-missile missile, nope, it has to be more accurate - or be rather plural. Both the accuracy and the plurality increase the cost.
  7. Things That Are Just Annoying

    Nothing is going to increase to infinity in a finite amount of time. However, it may increase to close enough to infinity that the difference doesn't matter to anyone (or, in this case, there can't be anyone for it to matter to). I occasionally use the term "functionally infinite" - meaning yeah, there's a finite limit to that, but you're never going to hit that finite limit because you'll hit this other finite limit much, much sooner.
  8. Discussion of Military, real or fictional

    Yeah, that truck is perfectly fine. It's just delivering a planet. Where do you want them to unload it?
  9. Comic for Friday, November 18, 2022

    I certainly wouldn't. You each had work-related secrets you weren't supposed to discuss, and you each knew that the other had such secrets. Presumably you respected each other's situation enough to not share and not pry. While I have no data on the subject, I would be unsurprised if it turned out that such couples are a bit more stable than average. (On the other hand, there is no shortage of NON-work-related stuff that can eff up a marriage.)
  10. Discussion of Military, real or fictional

    I suppose it would make firing while in motion a bit trickier... but I don' t know if they do that.
  11. Cats, Dogs, Other pets.

    Rampaging tribes of vicious dust bunnies?
  12. The Weather.

    And why da eff did they use an equator-centered Mercator projection for a map of the north Atlantic?
  13. Comic for Wednesday, November 2, 2022

    And/or learning of Diane and/or Susan.
  14. Cats, Dogs, Other pets.

    Almost looks like her tail has two tips.
