    I hope this story is not going into oil → greed thing because it’s totally impractical to consider transporting oil from another planet.

    Really, Oscar?

    Oscar was offered ten million dollars to set up drilling operations on Earth 2 (see May 14 strip). However, I agree that it would be impractical to transport the oil to Earth 1.

    Well, see, you just build a pipeline from Earth 2 to Earth 1, straight through the Sun. Hey, it’s a comic strip, so they can do anything they want!

    They have time travel and warp drive. They should be able to build a fleet of interplanetary tankers.

    We’ve discussed the interplanetary pipeline weeks ago — it follows the path of the earth’s orbit.

    Next thing you know, oil rigs will be popping up all over the place there.

    Oh no, not this strip too! Sheesh! We get it already! Oil = Greed = War = Evil Quit spoiling comics with the neo-political morality sermons and get back to doing what comics are meant to do: Entertain us! If we wanted another depressing reality check, we’d just turn on the news!

    I agree. —-unless they can make some ridiculous (apolitical) satire out of it!

    Get that fire going under the pot of oil so we can have some good Alley and Oscar wings. Bring the hot sauce!

    I can think of a sneaky way to transport oil from Earth 2 to Earth 1: Use Doc Wonmug’s time machine and open a portal to a time just six months before. In six months, Earth 2 and Earth 1 just swap places. For the Benders and Doc it should be a piece o’ cake.

    Oil already during the dino era?

    That sums it up only as was discussed by myself and others over a month ago—-it is totally impractical. So the whole point of this strip is what, discovery? No not really.

    Even if you had a functioning worm hole it would not pay for it. Time to move on unless certain powers want to take over Earth 2 and use it as a base totally under their control. That might work. And it would be close too.

    Gee, I didn’t know the Benders were environmentalists: Earth 2 is a Utopia until they discover oil.
    Bet they haven’t got Global Warming there!
