JTC Dec 18 2020 at 12:25 am Real geniuses (genii?) teach themselves primarily, and others around them just incidentally. They will be incredible for each other as the successes of one inspires the other, and vice versa. And speaking of inspirations, love that little secondary subtitle… #crosstherubicon indeed. JTC Dec 18 2020 at 12:29 am January 10th right? John M. Dec 18 2020 at 12:28 am Thinking on yesterday’s strip, is Jan using one of Javier’s anti-grav units to keep that dress up? It doesn’t look like anything else is! …unless she keeps her arms folded all the time… Kafiroon Dec 18 2020 at 12:41 am There are a few ways an engineer can make the top of that dress stay up. Even if she is not in it. Sam that is. John M. Dec 19 2020 at 12:48 am >:-( Thinking Sam, wrote Jan… too many good-lookin’ wimmin in this strip – keep my head spinnin’! Seems like there’s a few in the audience, too. NotYetInACamp Dec 18 2020 at 1:22 am Ego can get in the way of comprehension. I have had to hmble myself bothe in learning, and in teaching, as well as in dicovery. Evil also has humbled me too often. Just today I explained something that I easily see in my mind several times, altering is slightly or a lot every time. When the concept was finally understood I let down my guard somewhat only to be the recipient of and ego’s “Well, of course I know that.” That after seeming completely uncomprehending what I thought I had explained several times. But, of course, I learn something new every day. Sometimes it amazes me what I did not previously understand. At times in my life I could have benefited greatly from a mentor that actually knew as much as I did overall. But then, what do I know? I know nothing. Nothing! And I have proven it. Javier is lucky to have such an intelligent intern to work with. He will benefit greatly. Mike-SMO Dec 18 2020 at 1:41 am you have been noticed. I got popups noting that there are problems with the security certificate for this site. Have you been hanging with Mr Wood or Ms Powell? I hear that they haved been getting hits on the Devil’s children. Maybe it is just this old browser……. Why would anyone want to keep the dress-top up? Pamela Dec 18 2020 at 3:44 pm Scroogle did that to Vox Popoli the other day. http://voxday.blogspot.com/2020/12/alas-poor-sjw.html Henry Dec 18 2020 at 2:32 am “You bet, Pop!”?? Please tell us you didn’t sell out to Archie Comics! TheDuckHunter Dec 18 2020 at 1:06 pm My kids still call me “Pops” so it’s not out of date…. steveb919 Dec 18 2020 at 3:06 am Has the worm turned? Lucius Severus Pertinax Dec 18 2020 at 3:50 am Devil and the deep blue sea behind me Vanish in the air, you’ll never find me I will turn your face to alabaster When you find your servant is your master Browncoat Dec 18 2020 at 4:24 am Age has it’s privileges and it’s curses… I remembered the lyrics but couldn’t remember the song. Now why did I come into the kitchen…??? cb Dec 18 2020 at 7:34 pm Entering or exiting through a doorway serves as an ‘event boundary’ in the mind, which separates episodes of activity and files them away. Recalling the decision or activity that was made in a different room is difficult because it has been compartmentalized. —— Or so it says here: https://www.livescience.com/44940-strange-facts-about-memory.html NotYetInACamp Dec 18 2020 at 9:32 pm I’ve got to move to a yurt. Too Tall Dec 19 2020 at 1:36 am Wrapped Around Your Finger by Sting Halley Dec 18 2020 at 8:23 am https://trendingpolitics.com/white-house-deputy-chief-of-staff-sends-out-cryptic-message-photo-historical-moment-in-the-oval/?utm_source=economics My speculation meter is back to zero. I just want to hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth from the vanquished Dark Side… TheDuckHunter Dec 18 2020 at 11:48 am My wife asked me why I didn’t ever know the words th the songs… I said who was listening to the words? Back then I let the the music carry me away… Too Tall Dec 19 2020 at 1:36 am For the Last Time by Boston Pamela Dec 18 2020 at 3:48 pm Javier, I would recommend a clean, sober and chaste work place for Elon. Plus add a zapper to one of the Dawgs for reinforcement JTC Dec 18 2020 at 5:35 pm (Javier’s saying “phew, thought she was gonna say no beer & no girls for me!“) Pamela Dec 18 2020 at 6:05 pm Javier~ No Beer and No Girls for you either. Thank you for the reminder JTC. Jan and Damon should already have had the TALK with Javier. JTC Dec 18 2020 at 7:07 pm I’ll go along with that for a year or five… No guarantees about Elon in his private time though…no outside imposed restrictions or regulations on the freedoms of an American icon. Pamela Dec 18 2020 at 3:55 pm Just passing this along https://sarah-chamberlain-42954.medium.com/open-letter-from-an-american-coward-c60530a7a8e9 John D. Egbert Dec 19 2020 at 11:15 am Thank you, Pamela, for that most important document. Here’s hoping everyone who reads it here copies it off and disseminates it far and wide – as I intend to do. Perhaps we should give Sarah Chamberlain a new honorary name: Patricia Henry . . . Halley Dec 18 2020 at 6:09 pm It is looking more and more like the Nov. 3 attack was an actual act of war, by enemies both foreign AND domestic. This makes Donald Trump a wartime president, with all that entails. JTC Dec 18 2020 at 11:07 pm But can he be a Peacetime President of the Constitutional Republic of America? Experienced and hardened in the ways of the Communists and their swamp creatures he would be the perfect CEO to guide us in the founding and Civil Separation process of the Confederated States of the CRA from the vestiges and ruins of the former US Republic that has lost its way and succumbed to the siren call of the Morlocks who want only to own and control and ultimately to kill and devour the eloi and all of us. And with the knowledge and contacts and resolve to defend it, once founded, from all of those enemies foreign, domestic…and even internal; he has great experience at that. The excellent piece written by and linked below by Pamela is not a siren call but a call to duty, to take and hold and defend what is ours from the forces that would steal them and kill us and our culture… If not us then who? And if not now then when? JTC Dec 18 2020 at 11:09 pm Sorry, the piece linked by Pam was written by Sarah Chamberlain. DogByte6RER Dec 27 2020 at 1:43 pm Musk has always been overrated … but he would be a good intern for Javier. Lots of past and present taxpayer funded cronyism made Musk the billionaire he is now.
