Susan is hoping by the time Lemont finishes his next sentence, she is having dinner with somebody normal.
Lemont is in philosophical modality.
Lemont doth protest too much, methinks!
That is one of the things I constantly think about. Events and delay it took for the news to arrive to our ears.
Two of the things I perceive, poor Lemont seems not to notice – despite their extreme prominence.
“Right now” that is, “the present”, is like “a line” a theoretical construct. It has no dimension, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist as you cross it. Think about that Lemont, before you move on.
What’s bugging you, Lemont?
I think it’s fair to say that Lemont doesn’t know what he’s doing.
Kiss her you fool! Right through the mask!
—) Lemont seems to be relatable to the Stephen Dedalus character in “Ulysses.” Instead of living in the 1904 Dublin of James Joyce, he exists as a parallel Telemachus within the philosophical milieu of some representative Inner City. Here, he ponders “the ineluctable modality of the ‘audible.’” (—
Lemont brought up Aristotle a few weeks ago. Will he soon speak of George Berkeley in this strip? Still Water Dude runs deep!
Lemont, You don’t think, therefore you aren’t.
I love that Lemont and Susan are great friends, meeting outside on a rooftop, and still wearing masks. Darrin Bell has been the most consistent with showing his characters masked.
Careful of your undies, Big L. You’re about to trip over them!
Dude’s a dud
It’s to late to fix now, but you can still make it better.
If you couldn’t perceive ‘now’, you couldn’t think about it later. What you mean is, you can’t think about ‘now’ while it’s happening. Try stopping the thinking.
The only reasonable responses are either, “So what?” or “And your point is?” Regardless of the mechanics of perception your experience is still what you perceive.
duh, I work at the feed store.
Philosophical dead ends illustrated.
I don’t get Lemont sometimes. But I do respect him and his intelligence.
