    Good Morning to all of you out there.

    Sounds like quite the plan.

    Then again things rarely work out so simply.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 19 “The Savage Land of Promise”(47) 7/24/2013 Wednesday
    -
    The Displacer is a large rectangular hollow box. Row after row of tightly wound Mobius coils pack every available wall space and ceiling. Large enough to hold all the colonists with extra space for Mr. Am, Crema and Doleful. Drexler sees them file into the thing. He is certain he wants to stay and work for TexCom, only a part of him also wants to go with the others. It is a small voice he isn’t listening to when the larger one is so loud and proud. He doesn’t want to be disappointed again, the pain in his hand keeps his head clear.
    Everyone stands because there are so many. A grid keeps them from standing on any of the coils that are in the floor as well.
    Crema tries to get Drexler to come but he shoos her away. She shrugs and move along back to get in and close the door to the Displacer. That is when they arrived.
    “I order you stop in the name of TexCom Corporation!” Commander Til shouted, gun in hand. The Bood Alex men & women back aways as the armed and armored troopers stood ready to subdue them all.

    Doc seems kind of gullible. He’s not going to check this guy’s story out? After the Earth 2 fiasco you’d think he’d be more careful.

    Doc, please don’t do it, he’s up to nogood. Don’t trust a guy with more hair and a shorter beard than you have, he’s Mr. Nogood.

    Oh please. The science equivalent of a Nigerian 419 scam. It fairly stinks of it.

    Can we please move this conversation forward? Two panels a day and very little dialog in each panel makes for a story that moves as fast as a snail crawling through molasses.

    Presumably Doc Wonmug will be stopping off in Moo first to pick up our favorite caveman, then we will see what can possibly go wrong with the mission.

    Great episode today!
    It’s time for the calvary (Alley Oop) to arrive!
    .
    And where will the colonists go?
    What will they do?
    What will they see?
    Hmm, my post reminds me of a Dr Seuss story, but mayby it’s just me.

    There are nicer places than the Savage Planet.
    They will work to better themselves.
    They will see wonders of Nature.

    “climate patterns”? a volcanic eruption is not a climate pattern. the aftermath of an eruption can have a short term impact on the climate, as was seen in 1816, but it is a singular event, not a pattern.
    .
    something is fishy here, or maybe it’s just another dumb storyline from carole.

    A great summer morning to the Benders and the readers of Alley Oop. So the device will gather and analyze Data on all of the area’s atmospheric conditions. That’s a lot of claim
    for a handheld data device. All the areas— what specific areas? If there was a satellite or even a weather balloon
    floating in the air, I could understand the claim. As it is, I would assume that Doc will have to visit multiple areas in Switzerland to gather data needed. How does it analyze?
    Is there a miniature lab to analyze air and soil samples?
    the Mars rover had one. Doc needs to ask. What he is being asked to do can be handled by a robot, or even a monkey.

    I AGREE WITH TACOBEAR, THIS GUY LOOKS TO BE BAD NEWS. IF DOC IS SMART HE WILL STAY CLEAR OF THIS GUY. BUT YOU KNOW HE WON’T, SO WE WILL JUST HAVE TO GO ALONG ON THIS RIDE WITH THE “BENDER’S”.
