    The professor’s equation is nonsense. Rat’s makes complete sense.

    What professor Bob doesn’t realize is that life is not explained by an equation but a conundrum!

    Either equation calculates to 42.

    …if not, repeat steps one and two until the result is :-).

    Move over Michio Kaku. Rat has found the One-inch Equation!

    Invalid, unless “smiley face” equals “42”.

    Rat’s equation also applies to the after life, because as we all know, in heaven there is no beer.

    It’s a ruse. Godel’s theorem make such a quest impossible.

    Does anyone know if that’s a legitimate equation? And if so, for what?

    Remember; 6X9=42. Or it does according to Arthur’s Scrabble set…

    Yeah, we men,and apparently rats, are not complicated! Add one more thing to the equation ( I’ll bet you know what I mean) and it describes all it takes to make most of us happy!

    I’m sure there’s a proper equation for “life”, but I suspect it has quite a few irrational and imaginary numbers…

    Thank you to all of you who have offered your support this past week. Our house, for now, has survived, but the neighborhood next to us is entirely gone. And the fires are far from contained.My old house (where I drew Pearls for about 10 years) is gone, as is the entire neighborhood around it.And unfortunately, the house that Peanuts creator Charles Schulz lived in is gone also. Schulz was my cartooning hero. The extent of the devastation is incredible.Thanks for all of your love and support.

    RADISH? You’re Stefan? As the US philosopher Jed Clampett often said: “Well, doggies!”

    You came out of it? Great. I had no idea! Good luck to you, old friend. May you find peace with all this soon. Carry on! (In every sense o’ da woid!)

    Oh, my gosh! How did i ever miss the two implied jokes beyond the obvious ones? The first is on something being sufficient to the task, but the better one is that those from MIT spin their Rats! OF COURSE, the MIT preferred variation of the equation was used.
