As one commenter observed, one Sidewinder enema coming up.
And, yes… I know about Weight-On-Wheels switches and blast radii and all that good stuff. This is inside Sam’s mind. She at this point, she doesn’t care about that. She just wants a big boom that would make the Mythbusters weep with envy.
Although, thank you to all who pointed out how this would work in the Real World. I have enormous respect for all those who’ve put on the uniform of this country and defended it… in all branches, not just the Air Force (although my dad was in the Air Force and that’s where he met my mother. Any bias toward the USAF is little understandable… )
For the last several weeks, I’ve been nursing a busted knee. I tore it up by wearing bad shoes for too long. It was healing up nicely and I was back up to, oh… about 85%.
This morning, I twisted it into directions I wouldn’t be able to find with a Tardis and ouija board. I went down like a boxer paid off by the Mob taking a dive in the fifth round. It hurt like the dickens and it still hurts.
I’m hoping this isn’t going to have a negative effect on the progression of the story. That’s my plan, anyway. However, if things drop off, that’s why.
UPDATE: Well, it’s been about 48 since I wrenched my knee. It appears I didn’t do as much damage as I had feared. The pain level is back to where it was before I stepped on the screw and visited new dimensions of pain (do I get points for a Sluggy Freelance reference? No? Awww…), so I only lost a couple of days, not a couple of weeks.
I have just discovered that when you click on the back button, you see the previous art, but the blog post and comments are of the current page.
I have no idea what is causing this. It’s something inside WordPress, which is written in High Egyptian Hieroglyphics (I think some of the code is found on the Rosetta Stone…)
I’m working on a really cool solution to this, which I hope to announce by the end of the year. Until then, mumblemumblemumble…
No, not that kind of news… Really good news!
I’ve got pages up for all week! And I’m planning to have strips up for all of next week, too!
See! Told ya it was good news! Come on back, the story’s going to start picking back up!
It’s random! It’s Nancy! It’s live!
For the last several months, I have been honored to be working with the great Guy Gilchrist, who writes and draws the classic strip Nancy®. The first product of this work debuts today on GoComics: Random Acts of Nancy!
In this feature, we’ll be taking classic Ernie Bushmiller panels from Nancy that were offbeat and wacky to begin with, and then pull them out-of-context so they become even more bizarre and surreal. It’s a Dada experience that would make Jean Arp’s head explode, and it starts today at the Random Acts of Nancy page on GoComics.com.
UPDATE: The links now take you directly to the Random Acts page on GoComics!
