    What happened to the zoom feature?

    • ◡ • Yeah, that idea went over like a lead zeppelin.

    @Fairportfan2

    Yeah, this one calls for a zoom if anything does.

    Wouldn’t it be easier for a kid to find helium tanks than hydrogen tanks? I have no clue where I’d even go to find a hydrogen tank.

    For Zoom – how about holding down “Ctrl” – and hitting + – works for me – but then again I’ using a Windows XP home computer – not the latest and greatest .

    Re zoom: what’s missing is the ability to call up a larger, high-resolution version of the strip. Some of the Frazz Sunday panels are absolute masterpieces of fine detail. Comics.com used to have this zoom. Gocomics only had a “zoom” that blew up the low-resolution standard image… which is something most computers can do without help from the web site. Just what you need… bigger pixels.
    .
    As for the “Hindenburg” reference, the conventional whiz-dumb that it was a hydrogen explosion was soundly de-bunked several years ago by a NASA engineer who worked on the space shuttle (that is, an expert in hydrogen fires and explosions). He found that the Hindenburg’s canvas envelope was painted with a mixture of iron oxide and powdered aluminum pigments—a combination also known as thermite—and poorly grounded. This created a spark, which set off the pigment. Only somewhat later, after a goodly portion of the ship’s envelope was on fire, did the hydrogen itself ignite. So the pride of Nazi Germany would have gone down just the same way, in a ball of fire, if the US had let Hitler have helium. “Secrets of the Dead” did an episode on this (I think you can watch it on the PBS web site) and found that the Zeppelin Company had reached the same conclusion within weeks of the disaster, but kept it hushed up for insurance purposes.

    It doesn’t detract from the humor. By the time most of us understand what really caused the fire, “Oh the humanity!” may have completely faded from memory. Or not.

    Wikipedia has a long informative discussion of causes of the disaster

    To zoom, you can also hold down Control and rotate the wheel on your mouse.

    About Mrs. Olsen, how did the artist find the 7th Grade Teacher/Vice Principal from the Elementary School that I went too back in the dark ages.
    Yes I went to an Elementary School that was grades K-7

    Forgot, the 7th Grade Teacher/vice Principal that I mentioned name was Mrs. Olson.

    Add my vote for the zoom feature. Ctrl (or Command) + doesn’t make it easier to see, just bigger.
