    Good Morning, Folks . . .

    That sounds rather reasonable, I guess.

    If Alley gets involved (he most likely will), hope he can handle this.

    Is there any reason the full stop can’t be used in this strip’s dialogue?

    Let me see. One tiny soil sample. One bug. One leaf. And what great scientific discovery are we hoping to get from this?

    Sounds like a recipe for the classic time travel mishap. The insect is the one that would have bitten his great great great grandmother, his great great great grandfather wouldn’t have offered to go buy some iodine for her, etc.

    URANIUM, can you say URANIUM???? Mr. Nogood wants to see if there’s any URANIUM in the soil, he’s just using the insects and vegetation as a cover-up.

    The problem is staying awake.

    Reminds me of a Ray Bradbury story. Careful Doc! Bringing back an insect is going to alter the future when you get back!

    This is boring. I’ll check back in every three or four days and see if it gets any better.

    Should have a fourth vial, to collect a water sample. But, I think this is all some sort of scam. Not sure what yet. The first devise is supposed to collect climate data? It looked way too small for that. And why Switzerland? Other parts of Europe were just as affected, Spain for instance. Why not have Doc collect samples from different parts of Europe? Scam I say, scam!

    Good Morning Benders and Readers of Alley Oop. Air Sample OK Soil Sample – could be ok if no lice in it
    that could spread typus. Insect sample If alive when return
    to present could be dangerous if unknown to present.
    No real instructions or warning to procurer of samples.
    I ran across a historical footnote that Benjamin Franklin in
    1784 speculated that dust from volcanic eruptions could
    affect climate by blocking out sunlight. He was correct.

    Don’t you think that Alley might have prehistoric fleas on him every time he time travels? Duh!

    What’s landing on the ground, how it effects flora, how it effects fauna. If both contract you get long range cold snap. If both flourish you get long range heat wave.

    DOC SAYS , THAT WON’T BE A PROBLEM…….

    Yeah, that would be almost as ridiculous as (say) measuring the rings on old trees.

    gullible doc thinks it won’t be a problem…he’s being set up for a multitude of problems.
