    The tablets are probably plastic as well.

    I thought it was comic physics, now I’m disappointed it just styrofoam

    Ask David Copperfield that question.

    It’s a shame that archaeologists haven’t found any of the caveman’s plastic yet. It would be beneficial to know what the caveman’s formula was for plastic because it hasn’t lasted for the thousands of years since, compared to their copper tools.

    I wish we could go back to returnable-refillable glass bottles as when I was little. 2 cent deposit on the coke bottles, returned them and bought new and the deposit was applied. I know the reasons it’s not done, but it would mean less plastic.

    Enough plastic to float rock? Maybe some time from now.

    Finally an explanation for something that always seemed a bit odd….though no odder than dinosaurs and man on earth at the same time….. the tablet communications is always a fun segment..

    I have a great idea. Let’s pretend plastic causes covid and make people all over the world not use it. It can be replaced by quality stuff that can last for years made by an income earning work force. You know, like the old days before WW II.

    It occurs to me that these “tablets across the sea” Sunday strips are just a two-panel daily gag stretched out with filler panels to make a Sunday strip. AND that the artwork itself is simply xeroxed from one month to the next. Now THAT’s lazy!

    So, they’ve already cut down all their trees. Like Couriscan, one big city.

    That handy rock with the stack of tablets on the beach always cracks me up!

    I’ve seen this in action. I’ve been to Marcus Island (Minami Tori-shima – or South Bird Island).

    Marcus island is a small heap of coral in the Pacific Ocean about half way between Midway and Japan. It is thousands of miles away from any significant land mass. Yet the beach is littered with garbage from civilization.

    Finally addressing the floating stone tablet in the room.

    There are several ways to interpret today’s comic. I saw it as the tablet coming back was made out of floating plastic, and therefore, to me, it comes from the future. When I was younger, I just assumed it went to another location, far away, unknown to the people in this strip. But as I have said before, pretty much I suspend logic and archaeology, paleontology, history, etc, when I read this comic and just enjoy it. I like the floating tablets that I like to think are made of stone, but in the past, it has been suggested they are wood.

    Did you know that only about 10% of the garbage in the ocean is from the U.S.?

    The plastic gigatons of it in the oceans for hundreds of years before humanity as we know it died out. BC etc. are GELFs designed to survive the constant heat and storms. Those across the way are changed too, made themselves 70% red-meat eaters and still maintain an advanced state of technology. They eat humans.

    Complain about others doing what you are doing.

    Our clothes are made of plastic fibers. Our floors are often covered with plastic. Our houses are sided with plastic. Our water reaches us in plastic pipes (unlike the lead pipes of old). It is carried away in plastic pipes.

    And we gripe about those who sold them to us.

    That is how they do it. But don’t worry, in the future they will recycle it.

    I keep hoping the younger generation will find a much better way to use less plastic and to make very recyclable what plastic is used

    It would indeed. If they could make glass bottles lighter and un-breakable, I’d use them in a heartbeat!

    I am not a “tree hugger,” but I do try to recycle as much as I can. I recently disassembled an old garden wagon – the only thing that wound up in the trash was the actual rubber tires themselves. The rest was broken down into components that could be recycled.

    I try to disassemble things like office chairs into plastic, metal and non-recyclable parts. It annoys me when I can’t do this and have to send something to the land fill even though some of the parts could be recycled if I could just separate them.

    I also recycled a garden tent. The frame was too big for pickup so I put it into my truck and took it to the recycle center myself. I got almost $10 for the scrap. It paid for the gas.
