    Could you share your list of comics you subscribe to, because you don’t like them?

  2. tundrasea GoComics Pro Member commented on Alley Oop about 10 hours ago

    Well said.

    It’s a way of fishing for a confession. If you admit to an offense, there’s much less chance of you (successfully) appealing the ticket.
    -
    Of course, if you won’t name an offence, you could be charged with driving while oblivious.

    The computer models called for ever increasing temperatures — a “hockey stick” even. The temperatures haven’t increased since 1998. A reasonable person might conclude that there might — just might A — be something wrong with the models.

    No one. No one is saying that the climate isn’t changing. The climate is always changing, in one way or another. It has been for billions of years, and will continue to do so, so long as the planet continues to orbit the Sun.
    -
    For decades, Al Gore, and his ilk, told us that the planet was getting warmer, due to CO2 and other “greenhouse gases” emitted by human activity. When people started to notice that that warming stopped (or paused, if you prefer) in 1998, the term “climate change” was introduced. That terminology allows the Gorebots to claim that any change in weather is evidence of “climate change”. It’s hotter? Climate change. It’s cooler? Climate change! It’s dryer …. well you get the point (or, if not, ask someone to explain it to you).

    You seem to be in a rut — no matter what happens in the strip, you repeat the same worn-out complaints. You need some new material.

    Noise-cancelling headphones don’t work well on music (no matter how much you think it’s “noise”). They work very well on repetitive sounds; such as traffic noise, or airplane engine noise. They work by producing sound waves that are 180* out of phase with the noise.
    -
    If you want to reduce all sounds — including music, and voices, you need “sound isolating” headphones. These work by passively (no electronics) dampening all sounds.
    -
    Noise-cancelling headphones have gotten a bit of a bum rap; because people have been led to believe they’re supposed to work like Betty’s. They don’t — but, that’s a feature, not a fault. They make airplane travel much less unpleasant, by cutting out most of the engine noise — while still allowing you to hear your seat-mates, or the flight attendant.
    -
    I have noise-cancelling headphones, and noise-cancelling ear-buds. I would recommend either of them highly for air travel — but, they don’t do what Betty’s are doing.

    “This “kid” still enjoys the Scrooge McDuck money displays !”

    Me too! I should have mentioned Scrooge — he really knew how to enjoy having money (not spending it, just having it to look at, and wallow in).

    If that were actually Lana, rather than Ooola, the detective would also be entitled to the other half of the $5,000 fee. His fee was for finding Lana - he opened the door, and “found” her there.
    -

    BTW, he’d also be entitled to “expenses” — probably car mileage, and a lunch.

    Could be. Also, at that time it was quite common to pay employees in cash. Many workmen didn’t have a bank account, so cash was the best way to pay them. A business would often have a lot of cash in a safe, for payroll purposes.
    -
    Even today, a lot of employers pay cash — usually “under the table”, to avoid taxes, etc. (for both the employer and the employee).
    -
    I think that the safe full of cash is being shown, to establish that Kelther is a shifty character. He pleads “poverty” — but has a safe full of money. We know what motivates him — it only remains to find out how far he’ll go to avoid parting with any of that money.
    -
    In addition, this is a comic strip. It’s a visual medium, and read by many children. A safe full of cash is a lot easier to understand; and has a far greater visual impact, than writing a check.
