    Umm, God, wouldn’t it be easier if you just converted this into a star gate and everybody just walks through?

    I remember talking to my scripture class – “What’s an ark?” and someone said “It’s a great big curve …” No, ark not arc – it’s a container, nothing more, nothing less. I love the cats.

    Hokay, if Noah was in France, he’d have built the Arche de Triomphe. America, it’d’ve been Golden Arches. Japan, shaped like a torii gate. Canada, an inukshuk. (Work with me people…)

    As someone who has worked on both sides of specifying requirements for programmers, I like this one.

    I wrote a payroll program for my wife’s business. Then I saw her run it and then she got out the adding machine and started totaling the numbers. I told her, “You know I can get the computer to do that for you.” I was literally in bed with my customer and I still missed a requirement.

    Non Sequitur is available in strip and panel format. When the Seattle PI discovered this, they switched to panel and shrunk it to the size of a postage stamp. Normally single panel strips have extra stuff off to the sides to cut to turn it into a tall panel, but I wonder for this panel if you can see the giraffes.

    Seams as plausible as the myth of Noah and the ark. The ark wouldn’t have been big enough for all of the insects and spiders, let alone the other animals.

    I still like the old Bill Cosby comedy bit on one of his comedy records about conversations between God and Noah. Still funny after all these years

    But I don’t know if it was it the same in that ancient language?

    Imagine if God had a New Englandah accent… Noah might have heard “Builld an Awk”…

    I guess that would have made him an Awkwright… instead of an Arkwright… or Arcwright in this case.

    And with the Awk in his care, he might be Awkward…

    Given the extraordinary wealth of carpentry details in the original story, it’s hard to imagine anyone getting it wrong….

    And why does everyone show a ship being built rather then the box or chest YHWH so clearly describes? In the Mesopotamian Gilgamesh story the Noah tale was copied from, the god Enki or Ea tells Utnapishtim to build giant box or cube to be called Preserver of Life. It was 200 feet in length, width and height, with a floor-space of one acre.

    YHWH tells Noah:

    “Make yourself an ark of gopherwood; make rooms in the ark [in Biblical Hebrew box, case, chest, crate], and cover it inside and outside with pitch. And this is how you shall make it: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits." — Genesis 6:14-15

    And what the hell is gopherwood, anyway? :-)
