    Good Morning, people.

    Well, Doc and Alley’s work begins.

    Wonder how Mary’s ariival will complicate things?

    Just dig under the snow and ice, Alley. No one said it was going to be easy.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 20 “The Coup in Moo Falls Mainly on Oop”(20) 9/3/2013 Tuesday


    He’s fought reanimated dinosaurs, aliens, vampires, werewolves, unclassifiable things∆, went to other worlds including Luna and time travels like no one else,but this beats all of it.(Even that vampire-clone of Alley Oop sent to destroy him by the evil genius Dr. Dark.)

    This whole thing smacks of Eeny’s power over women, but the horrible creatures must have something to do with Wootiewoot. It must concern her disappearance. Could it be? Those creatures…they are…

    xooloo spiders! Almost mythical since they live under ground many miles from here, but right next to where Moo use to be way back when. Trap door hunters and diggers. Rarely seen, all terrifying.

    He recalls that Wizer had cave drawings of them having seen them in action. Considering they are all around here he really doesn’t need it now.

    ∆ Some of Dr. Havelone’s stitched together creations and the Van der Sloo ’s necromantic resurrections which infested the House of the Worm till the huge ectoplasmic explosion cleaned it out into the wilds of Maine.

    Good luck finding a plant and insect sample under all that snow.

    Well, it’s time to roll up our sleeves
    and dig in. I can’t believe a scientist
    with an organized mind like doc’s
    would not have thought of that; he
    knew the location , year, temp, brought
    clothes for the weather, containers to
    collect samples knowing freezing weather
    (I.e. frozen soil) but no implements with
    which to extract soil sample ? This
    is not like doc. Guess that’s why we love
    him. :)

    The good Doctor would have to be a brilliant physicist to have unlocked the secret of Time Travel, but many such geniuses are extremely focused on that which relates to their specific field of interest


    The Absent-Minded-Professor might be a cliche, but not one without some actual factual basis

    a surprising percent of the PhD people I’ve met have the syndrome of “absent minded”…. caused I’m sure by the intensity of thought involved with their ‘field’ of expertise… and thereby lacking in many other skills or knowledge…. the description of a person with such a degree is someone who “knows more and more about less and less”. A few I know are brilliant across a wide spectrum… one such is the noted economist John Kenneth Galbraith.

    Morning, Oopsters.
    Still, any scientific expedition should be a well-planned scientific expedition. Any scientist know that.

    Most PHDs who I know are very knowledgeable about many areas of modern life and, it goes without saying, are very intelligent.

    xooloo spiders! *

    “I played poker with some spiders last night!”
    “Spiders??? Xooloos?”
    “No, I won every pot!”

    Have a good one, Night-Gaunt!

    They may stand a better chance than you might think. There are some species of plants that do well in cold, wintry conditions. Take the edelweiss in the Alps, for example.

    The bulk of the PhDs I know are brilliant people and they know a lot about a lot. In the sciences, They have to. All the sciences interact. Physics is the most basic and Mathematics is the language, but Biochemical processes define the universe just as well as Physical processes.
    I will not forget the Liberal arts and Socialsciences. Ive noted many Physical laws applicable in the interaction of species as well as the mathematical structure of Languages. Then One can also see the artistry of the Sciences.
    But I ramble…
    Needless to say, Elbert Wonmug is much more intelligent than our writer is letting on. So Is Oop.

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley,and readers of Alley
    Oop, Doc to spice up the gathering of the soil ,plant , and insect samples, should have done some research on the
    indigenous plants and insects. He could then, to pass the time while searching, played with Alley a variation of Twenty
    Questions but instead of animal, vegetable, or mineral, the question would be insect, mineral or soil sample. It would be educational for Alley as Doc would ask questions about
    the soil ,plant , or insect that Alley had gathered. Because of the cold they should probably gather the soil sample first, then the plant sample. There had been a slight spring but never a summer. Alley needs to be diverted as he’s using the word tough a lot.
