Okay, the new art style has given us the best expression of HannerHorrorTM so far.  I am now firmly in favor of the art changes.

I thought Jeph doing exactly what we suggested was how we got Steve eating cereal.

Who suggested that?


Steve eating serial was a reaction to requests the Jeph take a break from the wedding and show us what some of the other characters were doing.

I think someone jokingly commented on Twitter we had not seen Steve in a while.
It kinds escalated from there.

The quality of the comics is dramatically slipping since Jeph and Cristi split up. I don't know if it's due to that or other emotional issues Jeph is having, but this comic has taken a nosedive recently. Take a vacation, man. Sleep. Do whatever it takes. This comic is flailing.

Sass Relativity
R=sc2
Respect equals sass times the square of the speed of light.
That would be the special case Respect equation.
The general Respectability equation would be
R2 = (sc2)2 + (pc)2
where pc is political correctness though some theoreticians insist that p is the inertia of the body being observed relative to the observer and c is the speed of light as a universal constant
- I personally do not have much faith in that since it has been proven that the speed of light is not a universal constant and is affected by what it travels through or by.

When physicists refer to the speed of light as a universal constant, they're referring to the speed of light in a vacuum. The speed of light in media is a whole other can of worms, but the speed of light in vacuum is constant.*

*To the best of our measuring capabilities. There are experiments trying to measure changes in the fine structure constant which would indicate changes in the speed of light in vacuum, but no significant changes have yet been observed.

Yeah but part of the problem in doing any of those measurement is that we are sitting in a gravity well that is inside another gravity well etc etc etc all while being bombarded by an erratic stream of random high energy particles.
Its like doing precise drafting while sitting in a canoe going down the Colorado river in springtime.

There are enough inconsistencies in observed distant interstellar phenomena that some are pretty sure something isnt right about the assumptions.
The challenge is determining what the actual [censored] is going on and determining what does have a direct effect on the observed phenomena.

Theories and established assumptions do not die out until their establishment proponents die off.
That is something that has not changed and will not change until the nature of HomoSapiensSapiens changes.

The physicists who do high-precision measurements are pretty good at accounting for those sorts of things. I'm not saying it's absolutely true that the speed of light (in vacuum) is constant, but to the best precision it's been measured (and some very high-precision measurements have been done), it hasn't been observed to change.

On the surface that uncertaintity value seems quite small but the moment you toss in celestial distances the numbers go all weird.
They also use an assumption [pretty solid by what we know for now] with an inference for a deduction.

I remember one example my prof in first year used to demonstrate how tiny changes can have significant effects.
1 km piece of continuous rail expanded as it warmed up.
If one end is fixed and the other allowed to move upwards within the 1 km space, how high would it move when the temperature changed from 25'C to 35'C ?

I think that's universal for guys and gals... we have a particularly unhygenic lady at work who leaves a scent after she gets up from sitting in a chair for 10 minutes. Blech.

Maybe toke a little something? I wonder what kind of comics would result from Jeph being high...

.... or maybe we've seen some examples already.

I don't think that's true from an observational point of view. I confess that today's strip didn't tickle my funny-bone very hard, though the "smelly body parts joke" has been a standard since the dawn of literature, but that's fine.

At the risk of feeding a possible troll... Edit: sorry for accusing you of being a troll

I don't agree with the "flailing" comment.

As for storylines... there has been an amazing amount of character development since he announced that they're splitting up:

* Marigold + Dale
* Marten + Delilah and his ensuing ennui
* Tension building with Faye + Angus
* Veronica + Jim
* The return of May in corporeal form
* Marten + Emily and his continuing ennui
* Sven being a butt and dropping his bomb
* We even got to see Yelling Bird's cloaca

Beyond that there are any number of older but still interesting storylines floating around out there that could be picked up at any time if Jeph gets interested in them again. Lots of unanswered questions and unexplored IMPLICATIONS to the stuff he laid down a while back.

Besides... Jeph just *took* a vacation to France... we're getting the resulting benefit of seeing him mess around with his styles in real time.  I like being privy to seeing his drawing evolve... not something every comic artist is willing to share with their audience.

The comic is interesting. The comic is evolving. The comic is not flailing.

Well you see May, when a Mommy and a Daddy love ea... wait, wrong explanation.

When someone is pushed to the point of completely snapping sometimes they become super chipper and cheerful, like a layer of super thick and tasty frosting over a cake made of layers of hatred and rage. This is usually preceded by a mental BSOD for the character (or real person) in question.

Well, she should not have any reason to be angry at Faye. It is not Faye's fault Sven is in love with her. The last time we saw Dora, I anticipated mayhem. I would guess Dora has caused severe physical damage to Sven off-stage, and is now satisfied and happy with her work.

I agree that the comment was out of line and also unsubstantiated, but FOAD is also not something we allow people to say here - it's a pretty vicious personal attack and we have a rule against those. Make your point (a valid one that lots of people agree with) but do so in a way that respects that Bucky, however rude and incorrect you may find them, is also a real person.
