    Somewhere Darwin is chuckling.

    As a former power systems engineer, I can’t help but note that the power lines are severely misdrawn. That’s OK, I love this strip!

    I don’t think Darwin would find it funny. And this is just a minuscule side part of what he meant by “flexibility in adapting to a changing environment” is the trait he found most important in any species. There are no superior and inferior traits. Just traits. Self destruction does seem to be part of us.

    Great, Hal! Now how’s about a dictionary definition of pedantry?

    A Darwin-award in the making.

    I like the Steve Morse T-shirt.

    More like a ZAP! line.

    I’m still waiting for zip-line gondola street cars. No power necessary except at the stations, to raise the car to the next zip line on the circuit.

    Most “Darwin” comments are made by people who have never read ANY of his works.
    It’s an attempt to make a joke and should not be taken beyond that.

    He’s just a blow hard trying to impress people.

    Dennis, what’s wrong with the way the lines are drawn? They all appear to match up to their corresponding position on the towers.

    Lots of zip indeed!

    Power cables hang down to form a specific curve, a catenary. In the strip they seem to be drawn tight, which is a disaster waiting to happen.

    Almost all power lines are three phase, using 3 sets of wires ( or 6 or 9 or 12) not 2, usually plus ground or lightning wires at the highest point. . And of course the structure of the towers is not symmetric and triangular enough.

    My first impression of the “power towers” was that they were skeletons for transformers. It took my brain a second to readjust to the intended effect.
