So yeah. Like it says, I was away all last week. I was supposed to come back Saturday night, but had finished comics through Monday just in case. Hah.
Once the storm shaped up, I pushed our flight to Sunday because every forecast said the storm would be over Saturday night. Didn’t matter, they cancelled Sunday flights too. And by then, all of the people that had already been cancelled on Saturday (like our original flight) had booked up all the flights through Tuesday.
We finally made it home yesterday, three days later than planned. Pretty fried.
But hey, I got to fly the Millennium Falcon.
The middle panel had me laughing for several minutes straight before I even got to the third panel. I think my favorite part is the mischievous look on Snow Storm Keenan’s face.
It wouldn’t be a problem to stay, makes your comic schedule more efficient, Florida disease is treatable with a dose of Disney every few months, and no snow to shovel.
My biggest travesty here last week was ice on the top of my car, made it an extra minute to prep it for commute.
And besides, I’m sure Zeke would agree. He would want to send humans somewhere more dangerous (even if marginal) in the off chance to remove some. Pray Zeke never hears of Florida man if that’s the case.
Fuck that – Florida is Zeke being nice. If he really wanted to play that kind of game, he’d send them to Australia. EVERYTHING wants to kill, or punch, you there.
At point, Australia starts be very darn much like complete form of height of Stalins USSR/ height of Hitlers nazi germany
Hope you feel better soon. Love the impromptu comic.
The little victories saved of the defeat
Meanwhile on the other side of the planet the depths of summer have kicked in and we’re having a heatwave.
Hope you got to enjoy the extra days away at least somewhat and didn’t spend them sitting waiting at the airport.
Just one important question really…
How many parsecs did you manage?
On a side note… Microsoft bought Activision (who makes PS exclusives) and now Sony bought Bungy, there’s got to be a console wars comic in that right?
OH HELL YEAH! Definitely hoping for it’s comic soon!
Dem snow dicks. They’ll getcha
When life gives you snow dicks…
You make snow lemonade?
That’s not lemonade
“When the time of the White Frost comes, don’t eat the yellow snow”
Watch out where the huskies go
And don’t you eat that yellow snow.
I wouldn’t recommend the white snow either if its coming out of a giant snow dick.
You’re a legend
Hope you had a good trip! The fact you still got the comic up in some form speaks wonders to your dedication after all of that.
100% agree, I’d of been more than satisfied with a quick text post that said what happened, but as a bonus I got a giant snow dick, so I’ve nothing to complain about there.
Ouch, lousy way to end a vacation. Thankfully you got home safe and sound.
Returning seemed a bit crazy-making – Safe, sure, but I’m guessing the “sound” part is gonna take a day or two.
Bet your boys LOVED the extra vacation days lol
Huh. I was also in Disney over that week… Wild. 😀
Florida Man Syndrome
I think you mean Freedom Injection
The giant snow dick was totally worth it.
Also going to Disneyworld next month. Road trip! 4800km round trip! woohoo!
I also live in southeastern New England and have known several folks who moved from Rhode Island to Florida, then moved back here after just a year or two. It may be okay for the snowbirds (Northern people with winter homes down South) but not year round.
I somehow hoped to not see a new comic but to see the panel with a blue eyed friend.-)
Enjoy your stay, being grumpy will not shorten the delay.
I can’t comprehend at all what you’re saying. Are you upset that there’s not a Zeke comic?
I liked the new cyan eyes.
When I first saw the last panel I thought he was hugging a sandwich.
Flying the Falcon is a lot of fun, hope you had a blast. No worries on the comic, man. I understand it’s a lot of work, appreciate you sharing your art with the rest of us.
Florida poisoning? I think you mean Freedom syndrome Brother!
Twelve assault rifles would cost you well over 120K$, require you to even find 12 on sale , and months of work through the ATF to get them, i think you mean 12 sporting rifles
Yeah that was my question too, how many states allow full automatic guns anyway?
I can only speak for Finnish gun laws in which anything past semiautomatic is hard as hell to get, but hey our gun owners tend to be bit more professional as practically all gun owners have done military service. So we are bad comparison point to USA.
Yeah, another difference: The US have two relatively militarily irrelevant continental neighbors. You Finns have Putin’s Russia as your next door neighbor. I’d be wanting everyone in my country to be trained and ready to fight with that neighbor.
I feel so sorry for you, the Ukrainians, the Norwegians and the others along the path of an expansionist Russia. Sometimes you can get lousy geographic positioning. (We lament Quebec, but I’ll take them over 99% of the globe as neighbors go…)
Fully automatic weapons are extremely hard to acquire – they require a lengthy background check process and an extra payment for stamp of approval from the government. Or you can be a criminal and buy one out of the trunk of a guy who knows a guy.
everyone knows you fight nanobots with thermite grenades anyways
Thermite is easy to make. Thermite on nanobots may work, but it also kills the host. Perhaps an EMP to fry the bots and lots of fluids to flush them out of the body.
That just in Florida? Last time I looked I could get military pattern assault rifles for less than $10K. That’s been a while, but I recall seeing some for $4000-5000 new. Then again, everything is more expensive now.
there is no such thing as a “Military pattern assault rifle” it’s a BS term, an assault rifle is a select fire rifle (burst fire or full auto), you can buy a new semi-auto rifle (single shot only) in the US for anywhere from 500$ or so and up to as much as you want to spend.
a semi-auto sporting rifle that looks like a military assault rifle (aka “military pattern”) is still only a semi-auto sporting rifle, the “look” is irrelevant to the type of rifle
If those $350 semi automatic things aren’t called assault rifles, then why does the military and the manufacturer call them assault rifles. Plus the only sport they are good for is shooting people, so sporting rifle doesn’t work.
They don’t call them that, just politicians and anti-gun types.
Also, just because you don’t know or participate in a sport doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. There’s a whole shooting sports world out there, even in olympics.
The military and manufacturers don’t call them assault rifles. Telling lies is naughty.
Snow Storm Keenan needs his own series. Not like you don’t have enough to do.
Remember pre-kids when a vacation was rejuvenating? Post-kids, we need vacations to recover from vacations!
One more reason I never started a family xD
We (Florida) apologize for some of our more colorful entities.
So why does anyone visit COVID central when there’s no health protocols in place? You better get tested pronto.
Down vote all you want kids, but he aint wrong.
No worries, the climate catastrophe will get you all. Or us all. Whatever. Here’s more dicks: snowy, hurricanes, tornados, fiery death a.k.a forest fire, viruses…
“Florida disease” was brought here by you %@*%( snowbirds that didn’t know when to go home. Five decades I’ve lived here, and it’s only gone strange in the last 10-15 years.
I lived there in the ’80s. It’s not just the last 15 years. It’s always been strange. Remember hanging chads?
Snowbirds have been there for about 75 years though.
Only twelve assault rifles? Everyone knows the correct number of rifles to fight nano-bots is thirteen…. and a flamethrower. 😛
First of all, we don’t believe in nano-bots. That’s just the beer you forgot to ask us to hold talking.
Secondly, no one owns twelve rifles. We own three or four, max. Maybe a few more for the wife and kids and those of us with families.
Thirdly, notice how we didn’t have snow dick issues? Yeah, keep being jealous.
Finally, you’re ripping on us pretty hard for someone within gator throwing distance….
I have been to Florida twice in my life. Both times I got badly sick to my stomach. Seriously, only reason I’d ever go back would be Galaxy’s Edge.
This comic was fantastic in its own right.
Months of serious, cerebral strips about the essence of personhood-
Yeah, a big ol’ snow dong is well deserved. Best of wishes to you and your family, and thank you for years of content! I still tell stories about driving up to one of the meets.
ahhhh where is ethan?
I think ivermectin treats nanobots.
Ivermectin works well on parasites and helps the body thicken cell walls, but I don’t think it works well on mechanical nanobots. Perhaps airport body scanners with their radiation would deactivate the nanobots.
There is no way to get rid of the nanobots, but if you wrap your body in mylar sheets you can block the signals! Don’t forget to cover the mouth and nose!
Twelve “assault” rifles is a bit much unless you have that many people living with you. What you need are assault nanobots to take on invasive nanobots. Perhaps an entire nanobot armor division and disassembler bots.
Boy the art really picked up this week!
When you realize one of your favorite webcomic writers lives in your corner of the country 0_0
This is quite possibly my favorite comic you’ve ever done!
Assault rifles? Why? Most of us just have regular rifles. Machine guns are a lot harder to come by.
