    Education by experience…that’s a great and terrible thing. In the hands (paws?) of someone like Rat, mostly just a terrible thing.

    that’s pretty good. I think rat is using the de-constructivist teaching method.

    The Defenestration of Pig: wasn’t that a big deal in the Thirty Years War?

    May 23, 1618, a famous historic incident occurs in Bohemia, the Denestration of Prague. From Wikipedia:
    The Lord Count von Thurn turned to both Martiniz and Slavata and said "you are enemies of us and of our religion,… have horribly plagued your Protestant subjects… and have tried to force them to adopt your religion against their wills… Soon after, the Regents were thrown out of the third floor window along with the Regents’ secretary, Philipus Fabricius but survived after falling 70 feet.
    Later Protestant pamphleteers asserted that they survived due to falling onto a dung heap, a story unknown to contemporaries and probably coined in response to the Imperial officials attributing their survival to the intercession of the Virgin Mary.

    Where did the window go in the first and third panels?
    .
    Look at Rat’s ear in relation to the corner, and his tail in relation to the glass. (Which, as daBomb619 said, is on the wrong side anyway.)

    .
    That takes me back. “Culture and history of Central Europe.” Taught by a Slovak who came over just before the Iron Curtain fell.

    I have a vocabulary word for Rat:
    Warfarin.

    Jan Hus, whose death kicked off the Hussite wars and the 30 years war, had the “radical” notion of the Bible as written, vs. church tradition. Later on in Europe’s history, the Huguenots and later yet, the Puritans, tried to do the same.
