  1. Comic for Monday, Apr 15, 2024

    It worries me... because (a) some people have an overly-inclusive definition of "transgender" and (b) someone who is a borderline case, or who hasn't recognized their situation, could be seriously traumatized by suddenly finding themselves changing physical sex with no idea why or how it happened or how to consciously control it... As well as severely socially inconvenienced.
  2. Comic for Friday, Apr 12 2024

    I, on the contrary, suspect that she doesn't recall marking Sam. But she recognizes the mark as something she did, and sees why the spell she granted is particularly appropriate, and is having a "wow, neat idea!" moment. What she's missing is why Sam in particular, and not all the other trans people in town.
  3. Comic Wednesday April 10, 2024

    My high school had just under 600 students, grades 7-12. It also had two counselors to help the students with the bureaucratic stuff, and a head janitor kids went to for advice.
  4. Sad news

    I notice that the out-of-power party is eager to declare that anything the in-power party wants to do is crap... ... and then when they regain power and could undo the "crap," they instead set about polishing it.
  5. Sad news

    And to listen to a lot of Democrats talk, anyone who isn't pushing substantially identical policies (sometimes with the pointy bit in a different group's chest) in the name of anti-fascism is lurching uncontrollably to the right.
  6. Sad news

    And I see leading Democrats treating all non-Democrats with a similar level of respect. (IMHO anyone willing to run for elective government office is a candidate for a mental-health facility. And those who, having done so once, want to do it again...)
  7. Sad news

    Well, I figure that there's a reason the voters who align with the Republicans don't align with the Democrats, and "we find their nominees to be unpalatably left-wing" would be a good reason. I haven't noticed a shortage of Democrats who accuse Republican nominees of being unpalatably right-wing... which would make a similar amount of sense for the same reason.
  8. Sad news

    That characteristic is found in a wide variety of fanatics. Including on the US political left. And certain varieties of several religions. And some folks who have recently revised their lifestyle to an allegedly-healthier theme. And...
  9. Cats, Dogs, Other pets.

    Why not both? I'm sure that, by cat standards, the desk is a comfortable place to sleep.
  10. NP Thursday February 29, 2024

    But wasn't that while Tedd was thought to have no magical capability?
  11. Cats, Dogs, Other pets.

    You're a cat. Don't you need a nap to recover from that exertion?
  12. NP for the week of Feb 11-17 2024

    On Thursday's strip, I want to compliment Ashley on her self-awareness and honesty. And for Friday, a loud "no" to the wink-activated magic. People blink too much, usually without even being aware of it. But sometimes consciously deliberately, to clear something out of their eye.
  13. Story Wednesday January 31, 2024

    Well, Putin appears to be using something.... psillocybin, maybe.
  14. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    That sounds like crucial information that didn't get passed on when it should have been passed on.
  15. Things That Are Just Annoying

    I do that fairly often - I'm rather a night-owl. Unfortunately, I'm in Earlybird City. Seriously, I think they start rolling up the streets for the night at 1 PM.
  16. Things That Are Just Annoying

    I've been dealing with a much smaller annoyance: trying to find a thermostat setting on a space heater that will cause it to produce heat at night when the temperature in here is 65 degrees, but won't cause the thing to produce heat during the day when it's nearly 80 degrees.
  17. Story Wednesday January 31, 2024

    According to one definition of the word, it also sounds like they're trying to create a tyrant. (That would be a definition that includes one of the connotations the word acquired while passing through Latin: a usurper. It also acquired the connotation of a cruel or abusive ruler. In Greek, it just meant an absolute ruler.)
  18. Cats, Dogs, Other pets.

    Oh, such hard choices that poor cat has to make.
  19. Sketchbook January 22, 2024

    Well, I believe there are health-code regulations about the restaurant workers' hair or fingers in the food - but not about their fur or tail.
  20. Comic for Wednesday, Jan 17, 2024

    Odd thing is, an actual broken record usually doesn't sound like a broken record. But a scratched record often does.
  21. Political Discussion Thread (READ FIRST POST)

    Well, IMHO for decades the US's major political parties - the top dozen or so, and including the one I consider to usually be the lesser evil of the lot, not just the two biggest names - have been competing to see who can nominate the least suitable person to be President.
  22. NP Comic for Tuesday, Jan 16, 2024

    She's very good at it.
  23. NP Comic for Thursday, Jan 11, 2024

    I'm one of those weird people who think there is no peanut butter, and no chocolate, so bad that they can't be made worse by combining them.
  24. Comic for Wednesday, Jan 3, 2024

    The price of anonymity.
  25. Who in the cast has met an immortal?

    Some years ago I read an estimate that if we eliminated all contagious, genetic, and lifestyle diseases, plus the debilitating effects of old age, human life expectancy at birth would be... um... I can't recall if it was 600 years, or 800. Due to accidents, murders, and suicides. Rather short of eternal life. Imagine, though, with this many-worlds theory, a world where nobody dies. In our world, out of every human that has ever lived, somewhere under 1 out of 10 are alive today - exactly how far under depends on exactly how one defines "human" and thereby which species other than H.sapiens are included. Does this "nobody" include chimpanzees, whales, cattle, ants? Could be a rather crowded world.
