    Fear of spiders and snakes is a survival instinct, because both of those things are aggressive, bite, and many are poisonous, some lethally so. A human child (or adult) who just happily walks up to spiders and snakes and tries to play with them would probably not live very long in more primitive times, and sometimes even today. Thus, the instinctive fear evolved.

    “Finis” means “the end”, related to the English word “finish”.

    EDIT: Whoops, I just looked up Peppermint Patty on Wikipedia, and apparently she’s a totally different character from the “Patty” in the 1950’s. Schultz created her as a new character during the 1960’s.

    @Hobbes, I see from the July 1952 Peanuts strip that Lucy was a crabby complainer from the beginning, but Charlie Brown’s character got changed from mischief-maker to lovable loser, and Patty went from girl-next-door to tomboy and also got an appearance change to her “mousy-blah” hair and freckles. Such interesting history. Keep ’em coming. :)

    This is so me. :)
    I’d like to have this as a large print. I’d frame it and put it up on a wall.

    I’ve been following this strip for a while, trying to put my finger on what about it is so different and edgy, aside from all the light horror and sci-fi jokes. I just realized that there is usually (or always?) no dialogue in it. The humor is purely visual, with any dialogue left up to the reader’s imagination. I don’t think I’ve ever followed a strip like this before. It’s quite unique.

    I wonder if our poster-in-German meant to say “Ich denke, die Antwort ist NEUN.”

    Yeah, you only save money with a sale if you were going to buy the item any way. It’s surprising how many people don’t seem to realize this. I guess that’s why they get into out-of-control credit card debt.

    @Joseph Desouza, thanks. I knew that was a simple system of equations from Algebra I, and I was about to try to work it out myself. You saved me the trouble. :)

    I think Sedgie and Jarvis are funny, and I love their segments. I especially like this story line, because it’s making Sedgewick just a little more sympathetic as a character.
