For help on how to follow a comic title,
Pricing is based mostly (not completely) on margin % above the cost of production. If cost doubles, you don’t leave the margin the same, because your margin % would drop in half. In an inflation environment, the dollar value in purchasing power drops in proportion to the inflation rate. So if the % stays the same, the margin doubles, but the buying power of that margin stays the same as it was before you raised it. The “profit” in numerical terms may double, but the profit in “purchasing power” terms stays the same, and that’s the number that goes into buying the next round of cost of goods, which have also doubled. Money isn’t real – it’s a representation of exchange that is volatile and anchored to nothing that keeps it from varying in purchasing power. See WWII Reischmark.

The issue is resolved: the paper comes up over the top and down the front. That’s how it was drawn in the original patent. Those who neglect history should be arrested! Or not allowed to use toilet paper . . .
As it turns out, this whole thread was eclipsed by the magnificent job performance of the Ultra MAGA King – especially in contrast with Joematose, the bewildered spinning denizen of the West Wing.
Breathed: to break wind from the mouth.
Now we have a president who is gas-powered – like Swalwell – or is it Smellfoul? Hard to remember.
Very Bidenesque. Trump and Putin are now to blame for climate change, inflation, unemployment, gas prices, illegal immigration, Covid, the drug problem, gun violence, plastics in the ocean, and hangnails. Oh – and worst of all, Pelosi.
Too bad they don’t make a mask that protects people from TDS – it’s contagious and damages the brain.
