Even weirder: on October 15, 2000 the Seattle P-I’s website – then one of the prime carrier of online comics – ran the black separation from October 8 overlaid with the color separation for October 15. Here’s the artist’s explanation, posted to rec.arts.comics.strips the following Tuesday:
I do, in fact, submit the color separations (the cmy part) of the strip as aseparate document from the black separation (k). This is done because thecolors are filled in at a lower resolution than the line art. In the end,they’re pasted back together for final production. I wish I’d seen theSeattle P.-I. website on Sunday. Sounds wild.

False. By then NCSA Mosaic had been available for MS Windows for 2 years; versions for other OSes were even older. I ran that image-capable browser on SunOS in mid-1993; my personal website dates from 1994.
So that’s what they mean by “virtue signaling!”
I visit Beverly MA NE of Boston several times a year – son and family (grandkids!) there – and drivers in the area do this (to my mind) in excess. When there’s a lot of traffic letting someone turn out of turn can increase the flow, but when it’s unexpected the recipient of the handwave (or headlight flash) may be unready to react, then uncertain if it’s safe to go after a delay or not.
“2000” is either Dubya nostalgia or the current body count.
Now turn off the game system so we can watch “Shaun of the Dead.”
Trout is obviously unaware of the scamlike “charities” that enrich their organizers but deliver very little to the victims used in their marketing. (Investigate before you donate if uncertain.)
There’s an episode of “Midsomer Murders” in which a highly allergic woman is dispatched by filling the ventilation system of her car with rabbit fur (her inhaler having been removed from her purse).
Must be Ryanair. Our flight from Dublin to London Stansted last year was extremely low-rent; herded like cattle into an aircraft so bare-bones that a decal on the seatbacks replaced both the usual safety-instructions folder and the seatback pouch that holds it. Our connecting flight to Boston on Primera Air was, by contrast, low-fare luxury. (Perhaps not coincidentally Primera Air went out of business four months later.)
Anyone in marketing deserves far worse than a bucket of water on the head.
Well, neither of them is wearing a “I became a physicist for the money and the fame” t-shirt.
