G. M. O. T. !
Hey now, Ooola, you’re agreeing with the tortoise?
And yet humans existed as far back as 50 million years in the Cretaceous as Doc Wonmug himself said in 1939.
Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (745) 10/1/2019 Tuesday
Everyone breathed a sigh of relief when they passed the obvious current boarder of the Gleese Cluster space war.
Things are back to normal for now. Alley speaking with Bex the Panterran prototype for a universal helpmate for that branch of humanity.
“Really, you played 100 tri-dee chess games at once?” He is really impressed by that. Is it an idle boast?
“Yes, I was only 3 at the time, my ability to do multi-purpose tasking had been improving to such an extent they wanted to see how I would do with that number of games.”
“How’d you do? Kinda hard to keep them all straight in your big brain isn’t it?” Alley asked
“I won 78 of those games, tied 21 of them and lost 1.”
“How didjah lose it?”
“I found out the one I lost to was a synthetic neural network probably not unlike what is running this ship.” Bex said looking up for a moment like checking it out.
“So it isn’t a natural brain like the Empire uses?” Alley now knows well that the American Empire of this place is well versed in using the brain and the mind it contains of humans and animals over more electronic and photonic technologies based on silicon and gallium-arsinide.
“Oh no, totally synthetic biological materials used in its neural matrix!” Bex seems taken aback by the question.
“If my full faculties were brought to bear just on that one opponent, I am sure I could have done better…”

“THE THEM AFFAIR”
Illya contacts Napoleon at the New York office via scrambled communicator in the shape of a pen.
Napoleon, “So you are saying a ‘space ship’ came out of the sky and destroyed the abandoned lab of WASP?” His tone was undeniably incredulous. Illya had expected that.
“Um, ah, yes. We are all observes and can attest to that fact. I also have photos before and after of the facility, and the burned hole that is there now.”
“Tell me about the DIA agent there. You say he had been watching you and knew that an attack was going to happen?”
“Yes again, Napoleon. He was an architect and was following a conspiracy. It was back in 1968 that he finally found proof of what he calls ‘Invaders’ have it in for humanity. He proved his case to the government.”
“I’d like all of you back to New York for a complete debriefing. And the DIA agent too if he will.”
“Will you, Mr Vincent?” Illya asked David.
“For this, yes.”
“Yes Napoleon. We need pick as soon as you can.”
“Find some flat land near enough for a larger aircraft to pick all of you up.”
“Will do, out.” Illya finished and put the cap on his “pen” and put it away.
Alley knew much more about the “Invaders” including that they are not aliens per se, but alien to us now. It just wouldn’t do to complicate things at this time.He’s learned that over time, sometimes the hard way.

Mosquitoes are much more destructive and dangerous than humans…
Oh yeah? Not that I’m defending the humans, but show me one creature that’s not a bunch of destructive beings when they’re in large numbers.
Alley Oop – 20 years ago today.
and will soon be gone
That was in a different timeline!
Excellent art today! Especially in the last panel!
I am not sure if I am in the midst of a “pipe dream” or what….. but…..
Again, the drawing is pleasant and enjoyable1
The writing is pleasant and enjoyable, too!
I am not sure what caused the change in regards to JAS’s writing efforts…. but this is really, really pleasant. Thank you, JAS.
Anyone else see the irony in using ‘bipeds’ as a derogatory term while standing on two of his four legs?
Also after the ‘high center of gravity’ remark if I were Alley I would push him over on his back.
Morning everyone! Today’s classic link is:
The bacteria in our guts are convinced we exist to feed them ever since they gave up on tortoises for the most part.
Geez, dude – don’t hold back…
Guys. I was thinking about this on my commute this morning and i think i know where they are. Long before known civilizations a great scientific power that disappeared? Any one think the turtles are running what we call “Atlantis?”
Don’t know how, but I’m betting this leads to the reasons why tacos aren’t allowed in this timeline!
