  1. Comic for Monday, Jan 30, 2023

    There's also the thing that she's been keeping a lot of secrets about herself, and now she's found someone that she can tell them to. Pressure release ==> perhaps a bit more sharing than she would engage in if this were all perfectly normal to her.
  2. Cats, Dogs, Other pets.

    So, why was The Human waving his hand around like that?
  3. Comic for Friday, Jan 27, 2023

    Adrian is approximately (best estimate) 600 years old. He was born in Europe. He has living descendants. Statistically, something over half of the people in the world with European ancestry in the past 600 years should be descended from him. (If he were a thousand years old, it wouldn't be "something over half" - it would be "essentially all".) I doubt he was the first Elf. And I doubt that Elves happened only in Europe. IMHO, pretty much everyone in the world has at least one Immortal ancestor, and most have more than one.

    It's been recognized that keeping magic secret is not plausible, but DGB is not exactly pushing it into the limelight at a rapid pace either. And even when general awareness of magic does start to come out, people who have magic might still prefer to put off revealing their situation.
  5. Comic for Friday, Jan 27, 2023

    Biologically, with no magic involved, the fact that Adrian has sired at least two children (Diane, and some distant ancestor of Susan) is pretty much proof that the Immortals' chromosomes are pretty close to human, and the count is exactly the same. Of course, "with no magic involved" and "Immortals" don't go together very well. But then Susan is several-generations-away descended from an Immortal, and there's no indication of either of her parents being aware of magic. So either there's no magic involved in her specific case, or it's self-activating magic, or there's something her parents haven't told her.

    Just don't forget that a sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from technology.
  7. Idiom translation help?

    Mainly for Old Hack. On another forum a Danish expression was mentioned. "Do not sell diamonds for goldfish." Can you clarify what that's supposed to mean? Is there anything to it other than the relative values of the two items?
  8. Comic for Friday, Jan 20, 2023

    True in many contexts. I've suggested that the only way "supply chain" is a valid and accurate concept is if it's followed by "link fence". If you follow things around enough, our supply of computer chips is dependent on an adequate supply of wood. And potatoes. But with communications networks being what they are, our supply of both of those things is now dependent on our supply of computer chips.

    Or maybe a "packing for the trip to Damascus" event...
  10. Cats, Dogs, Other pets.

    I kind of doubt if her large drop trap is big enough. That cat might weigh 50 pounds. Her knowledge of where cats that aren't panthers are likely to hide, though, might actually be useful - if they don't already have someone with that knowledge on hand.
  11. Other Random Comics

    I don't think it will take all that long... seems that a certain rather prominent mouse owns one of those game systems.
  12. Comic for Wednesday, Jan 11, 2023

    Because someone had magically turned him female, obviously. "Who?" and "Why?" and "When?" and "How?" - might remain unanswered questions (from Noah's perspective) for a while. Along with how Elliot learned of the Diamond's existence.
  13. Comic for Wednesday, Jan 11, 2023

    Which could just be "I think I know who it is." And then Noah could run through all the people that he is aware she knows... which may or may not include Ellen...
  14. Cats, Dogs, Other pets.

    So is that one version the only interesting tea? Or does she like several of the mint teas?
  15. Sketchbook/Patreon For January 6-7 2023

    I note that the wand is pointed more or less in the general direction of Sarah. So it could be directional (with a generous allowance for poor aim).
  16. Discussion of Military, real or fictional

  17. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Much prefer having my body over yours, Prof, and I have my right arm in a sling with no idea why my shoulder has hurt so much for the last four days. (I can do left-handed mouse, but left-handed typing is awkward.) May all your {censored} get resolved favorably, and soon.
  18. Comic for Friday, Jan 6, 2023

    No evidence that Abraham was the source of the curse. His master was bitten by a werewolf and thus became one; apprentice Abraham made the Diamond in an attempt to save the master - but failed, in the sense that when the Diamond split the master into a full-time human and a full-time werewolf, the werewolf promptly attacked and killed the human. I don't recall anything suggesting that the werewolf who killed Blaike was, or wasn't, one of the werewolves in Abraham's origin story.

    ChronosCat, that second link says 2023 but its url says 2022.
  20. Things That Are Just Annoying

    Usually, when people close venetian blinds, the toward-the-room edge of each slat is down. And it's obvious that they are designed that way. There would be several advantages - including both blocking sunlight better and conserving heat better in winter - if that edge were UP. Some venetian blinds close up sufficiently to be better than when closed down - but not all, and most of even those won't close up completely.
  21. Comic for Monday, Jan 2, 2023

    Best estimate we had on Pandora's age before she reset was "at least 600." And she was approximately 200 when Adrian was born.
  22. Things That Are Just Annoying

    How comfortable are you with opening the case? I'd be inclined to take the network card out, clean the contacts, and reinstall it. (There are sure to be pics online of the inside of your model of laptop, with the network card identified.)
  23. Other Random Comics

    Nope.
  24. Political Discussion Thread (READ FIRST POST)

    Several, actually. Also a lot of lesser government officials. And media sources.
  25. NP Comic for Saturday, Dec 31, 2022

    Moving the planned adventure from where you expected it to occur, to where the PCs go, is a very common DM trick. In a long-running campaign, though, the DM may have to keep notes - once some geography is established, it shouldn't be rearranged. Which is why many long-running campaigns involve a lot of travel: the established geography is left behind, and the DM can resume moving things to match what the PCs do.
