    My father was proud of how he’d managed to instil a love of work in me and had me doing various things around the property with great gusto. (oddly, I was about Meg’s age. It was a LONG time ago!).

    He then bitched for years about the neighbour coming along and making fun of it, and me, for working so hard. Dad damn near hit him. Sadly, my father hadn’t instilled a resistance to being made fun of by strangers. His conditioning broke. Looking back, I kind of regret that.

    When I ask “who are these guys” I was talking about the band member buying tomatoes.

    Not those I’d consider to be recurring characters. Here I thought there was special meaning to the whole music/band/#rockthetomatoes thing.

    The question “who are those guys?” is NOT answered by going to “arloandjanis.com”. That page just asks two more questions: “Guess which archive you think it’s in?” and “Do you feel lucky, punk?”.

    As of this writing, there are 2 comments on this strip. One from Meowlin, and one from Argythree.

    The one(by meowlin) is a self-declared “pre-emptive” suggestion about not complaining about things that are free, and talks about someone named “Susan”. Which is idiotic at best. If someone puts something in the public domain, they should expect criticism. “Free” does not mean "free from criticism’, and all art is a form of speech, open to criticism. In my opinion, Meowlin is not just an idiot, but a complete idiot. Your mileage may vary.

    As for Argythree, who won’t take time to read more comments because they once disagreed with what another poster posted… ick. You’re new to this whole “interactive” thing aren’t you? I’m guessing you’re one of those immortals, who only recently woke up from you slumber from 1703. Hint: forum posters express opinions you might disagree with. Get over yourself.

    Personally, I found THIS panel quite accurate in its analysis of human (ok, cat) nature. Again, opinions may vary.

    No matter how I parse this, I find it utterly offensive. To even consider comparing a bad kitchen joke with the type of death and despair engendered by the dropping of nuclear weapons … words fail me as to the depth of disgust.

    Many old sayings should just stay unsaid if you don’t really mean it.

    Ah yes, the lie of the “average wage” or “average salary”. Someone else who needs to read “How to Lie with Statistics”.

    Depends on the type of drone and camera setup, since some make it very obvious where the camera is pointing, others not so much. In general, not without some technical assistance.

    Drone (noun): an unmanned aircraft or ship guided by remote control or onboard computers. (Merriam-Webster)

    Drone (noun): A remote-controlled pilotless aircraft or missile. (Oxford English)

    A quadcopter is simply a type of drone.

    I like Tom Farrier’s answer about the subject:

    I see it as religion (in a pure form, not the political herd controlling affair it often is) as trying to explain “why”, in the “for what purpose” sense. To many, the answer seems to involve some sort of supernatural being of one form or another.

    Science explains “how”. In the “how does it work” sense.

    It’s probably why some superlative scientists can also be quite religious – because they don’t confuse “why” with “how”. Sadly, it’s probably also why some otherwise seemingly bright people shouldn’t be allowed outside without a keeper.
