Heeeeeeey. Maybe I was right about unnatural hair color also being an inherited trait. Oberon rocks the blue, Lady Goat chills wit the hot pink. Why the hell not.
I think that may have come from an anime virus I picked up in my day job as a voice actor.
What I have established, based upon the previous few comics, is that something can in fact, provide both enlightenment and further confusion simultaneously.
This is not so very unlike an peanut butter, jelly, and banana samwhich.
Ah, yes, the PBJ and banana conundrum. So wrong and yet what could be more right?
That should be our new slogan…”We Shadows; like a PBJ and banana sandwich…so wrong and yet so right”
“…and, now, you really want one.”
You should eat healther. Jelly is bad for you. I recomend a a peanut, pickle, and mustard sandwich on whole wheat bread. White bread is bad for you also.
Wait…peanuts (not peanut butter), pickles and mustard? I am going to have to try it because my brain and taste bud memories can’t create any sort of taste matrix for that.
Why do I want one of each now? After rereading that, I’m going with a pbj banana sandwich and a pb pickle mustard sandwich… peanuts on a sandwich sounds horrible…
hmn, Jelly isn’t as bad for you as you might think, since it is largely sugared fruit, though jam or preserves tends to be better due to differences in the way it is made. As to all the people saying “but sugar is bad for you” so is not enjoying your world. Simple pleasures like peanut butter, strawberry jam, and banana, or a pickle that has been cored and filled with spicy mustard… or a hamburger on flatbread with chopped tomato, onion, and a serious portion of sour cream are on that list of simple pleasures.
Also, my brain can not even process the combination of peanut butter and pickle with mustard combination. The files for all three of those flavors are there, but the little hamsters in labcoats that operate my brain are trying to put them together, and just keep getting adorable little explosions made out of question marks, with the occasional ellipses in there.
Hmn, just not reading some comments that I missed due to a computer issue several pages back where you, Mister Strait, mentioned that we haven’t had the evolutionary adaptation to multitasking yet.
I think that may not be entirely the truth – ADHD is actually a state where your brain, regardless of all else, is constantly trying to multitask (… you know, I really love the one and a half crazed thing Mab has going on…) Increasing incidents of this suggests that the sheer quantity of sensory input, coupled with the fact that every time you learn something new, your brain physically rewires itself, suggest that the human brain, given the increasing amount of stimuli, has started to make the very step you mentioned. Further, such stimuli at a young age, when the brain is, for lack of wanting to go into the tedious neuroscience, simply more pliable, would actually cause ADHD to become more likely… and I do seem to remember something about younger generations becoming more and more tech savvy….
That’s interesting. And I hope that it is true that ADHD is simply a necessary step or by-product in the multi-tasking evolutionary process (instead of a horrible condition created by too many choices deteriorating the attention span of children). Of course evolution is survival of the fittest and those who can not multitask will have a difficult time surviving as the choices do not seem to be diminishing.
Well, consider that the attention span of children changed in the early 80s – teaching methods suddenly became less effective because attention spans among children became differently timed, and the timing was “stops paying attention at point x” where x was right about enough time to have between commercial breaks.
Wait, this is ancient Rome right? How the heck did he know what a balloon was?
One might reasonably suspect that balloons may exist in other dimensions, but not ours at the time. Limited time offer, only in participating dimensions. Technology and laws of physics may vary.
“So, would you like some strawberry jam with your garlic toast or are you reasonable people?”
