    In this case, what Larry says about anyone having different names for snow can’t be taken as a fact, or legend or even rumor. It’s just one of those old dumb sayings that people trot out when they have a point to make. It’s nice when you guys think I’m only going to put encyclopedic information into a comic strip- that shows an astounding amount of faith in my ability to make dry facts into something funny, but really, I’m just going to make The Buckets talk the way people talk, in order to efficiently communicate a funny concept… like the fact that it doesn’t matter WHAT you call a remote control, ‘cause it ain’t gonna come when you call it.

    ‘morning people’… those are the ones that wake up cheerful and upset the heck out of ‘evening people’, right?

    Zenith called them, “Space Commanders.” Had 4 buttons on them that, when depressed would strike a tone bar that the tv would “hear” then turn on, off, channel up, or down.

    My uncle had on of those. My dad figured out he could change things by jingling the change in his pocket. One way to annoy and provoke his brother-in-law.

    I’ve heard the term “The Clicker” being used quite often.

    I have another term for it: “The Final Solution” (when there’s nothing on at all, you use it to turn the set off).

    I’m a night owl, who can get up at the crack of dawn, when needed… but prefers going to bed at 1-3 AM.

    Its a remote. The channel changer is the kid sitting on the floor. And I have heard there are ways to make the darn thing beep like your car or car keys. I find it easier to just look between the chair cushions.

    Now Greg there may be many words for snow. After all, its just frozen rain. We have words for rain. Some cannot be printed. Or said out loud in public.
    .
    soft, gentle, soothing, misting, misty, scots mist, drizzle, spotty, scattered, showers, light rain, rain, heavy rain, sleet, hard, mixed, and the ever affectionally known deluge and monsoon. Feel free to add your own.

    Eskimos do not in fact have lots of different words for different kinds of snow. That’s just one of those popular fallacies that seem to be so well established it’s no longer possible to get it out of “common knowledge.”


    That is not a criticism of the strip; Greg just used a popular fallacy for a joke as humorists do all the time. It’s a criticism of the attempts to explain why Eskimos have so many words for snow.
