    just wondering – am I the only one for whom this strip is not displaying when there’s a new one? I realized yesterday that I had not seen it for some time, so I scrolled back to the "e"s and caught up on about 5 strips.

    Well, it’s up when I brought it up on this Nook Color (7:18 am Eastern). Can’t complain…today.

    It’s good here, at 7:27am EST. Also, I guess they’re going to try using the cart as a shell and the grenade as a bunch of gunpowder. Next stop… out the barrel.

    I think it was just posted late. It wasn’t in my queue at first, but now it’s there.

    I forget, what’s holding the elevator up?

    No one knows for sure, but all the clues point to air pressure.

    Ah.
     
    Who broke the physics? Deez silly cartoons.

    This is fun! You could easily count on a funny cartoon animal’s 3 fingered hand the number of times I’ve been right about what’s coming next in this strip, but I did call this one! Maybe I get it right again in another couple of years…. ;-)

    Important lesson: Never go cheap on your hand grenades. ;-)

    “Never go cheap on your hand grenades.”

    I like the high-end models, too. GPS, velocity sensing, targeting-mode, password protection, behind-the-wall targeting and bluetooth accessibility. I do draw the line at the 40" HD 3D screen, though, and iTunes downloading.

    Interesting that they called it a “lux” class. I would have gone with Magnum, High Potency or something performance based.

    “I forget, what’s holding the elevator up?”

    Well, on Sept. 19, the rats called them “hydraulic pods”. But, when the pod lifted off on Sept. 23, it looked more like suction in the tube lifting the pod up. The suction could be what’s holding the pod up right now.

    As a side comment, the vertical indicators to the right of the console screen on the operator’s panel looks to me like a cross-section of the elevator shaft.

    Given the lack of cabling or any kind of rack and gear arrangement I’d have to go with a differential of pressure arrangement. Suction (lower than atmospheric pressure) above the pod would be pulling the tube up. Then the lower part of the shaft would be sealed off and the air pressure below the pod would be added for a differential. By the time the pod reached the top of the tube, air pressure below the pod would be the only thing driving it up.

    The one thing that bugs me is that, since the top of the surface is covered with dust, the tube can’t go all the way to the top. Part of the pod would need to remain in the tube for the elevator to function. That suggests that the pod would have to extend below the floor, which is something that has yet to be shown. Aren’t engineers a pain?
