Or maybe they each mean what you both said they could mean but because the two statements so far are ambiguous enough to plausibly follow from the other, regardless, no actual communication has taken place and they will have a silly argument over who meant what later?

Wellll I'm a fan of the explanation that means that what we saw made some kind of sense, YMMV  8-)

Since when does time of day prevent an online application or job search?

(Hang on... is it CLAIR that's getting it wrong here? Martin means "it's late at night - go to sleep" Clair is taking it in the "working hours" sense... and is still a wee bit stoned...)

??

Marten is questioning whether there would have been any new job listings created since the last time Claire checked. Which, if it was at some point during the previous evening, would seem unlikely at 1 am. Claire points out it's afternoon in Australia, meaning that new job postings may have been created there since the last search.

Yep - another possible explanation...

So, speaking of endangered animals...

Koalas will be driven to extinction before 2050 in NSW, major inquiry finds

Unsurprisingly, habitat loss is their biggest threat.

When I saw Jeph's "Whatta beauty" comment below the comic, I thought it was referring to Claire in the first panel.  It took me a moment to realize it was a Crocodile Hunter reference.  :P

I can say that, living and working in the south of Australia, crocodiles are not a major concern for me.

In my previous job I was working on an island where there were two protected species, a wallaby and a snake. It was mostly a matter of being careful not to hit anything on the way home (I wasn't in early enough to catch the morning wildlife peak), though I did hear of an occasion when one of the snakes got into the building next to ours and had to be gently persuaded to go out again, which I believe took some time to do. I don't recall now whether the snakes were venomous.

In suburbia you don't really encounter most of the dangerous animals. You just have to watch out for whatever spiders live in your area, and sharks and jellyfish at the beach. If you live in the country you do have more things to watch out for.

Australia is a remarkably aggressive place in terms of its biosphere and even its geology to the point where TV Tropes. org has nominated it as the closest place on Earth one gets to a Death World. That said, the majority of problems in Australia seem to boil down to humans seeming to have no obvious common sense instinct when dealing with the habitats of large and dangerous territorial animals and a bizarre assumption that cute looking = safe. That's potentially lethal on any continent!

point taken but i dunno... Caracas, San Pedro Sula, Cape Town, Juarez, South Chicago; those places look like Death World to me. talk about dangerous territorial animals.


that would be fun to see Claire at Invisible Emu. it could also bring Millefeuille and the Secret Bakery gang closer to Martin's inner circle.

"...they're not allowed in libraries."

True - not that I'd try and stop 'em.    :wink:

Oh, they're allowed in. But they're too afraid to enter. It's Evolution, the ones that survive know better.

Have you ever met an angry, or even slightly miffed, Australian Librarian?
