Man, that arcitecture is weird. It's like... the school itself is a creature of chaos.

OK, jokes about Dan's early artwork aside, I still gotta wonder just what Tedd said that disturbed Elliot. With as long as Elliot has been Tedd's best friend, he has to have found out about some of the odd things he likes (like furries), which implies this is a heretofore unplumbed depth of Tedd's occasionally disturbing psyche. Plus it has to be one that can be expressed in a somewhat limited sentence by filling in three words. I wonder what it is, but I'm almost (but not quite) afraid to ask.

I also wonder just what the heck is arousing about somebody cleaning a desk with a toothbrush.

I don't think it's so much what she's doing, but what she might be wearing while she does it...

You mean like her usual outfit of shirt, pants, and lab coat? That... still doesn't explain it. Unless Tedd has a fetish for lab coats I'm still not seeing it.

It's Tedd! And risque clothing is the only reason I'd find it arousing.

Dan really should have used a ruler or something to draw the school. Anything other than the straight line function on MS Pain.
The book is almost always better than the movie. You could have no better case in point than FROM HELL, Alan Moore's best graphic novel to date, brilliantly illustrated by Eddie Campbell. It's hard to describe just how much better the book is. It's like, "If the movie was an episode of Battlestar Galactica with a guest appearance by the Smurfs and everyone spoke Dutch, the graphic novel is Citizen Kane with added sex scenes and music by your favourite ten bands and everyone in the world you ever hated dies at the end." That's how much better it is. - Warren Ellis.

Would it disturb people if I said that I find the idea of Amanda defenestrating my phone bill with her rocket launcher arousing?

Buddy, I go on 4chan and I'm never even surprised. Nothing disturbs me any more.

With the way phone bills are nowadays, no.

Well, that and the fact that I like the notion of Amanda with a rocket launcher, too. I think I somehow got permanently damaged back in the time of Bikini Girls with Machine Guns, girls + heavy ordnance = hot. Or maybe Aliens and Vasquez did a number on me. Curse James Cameron and his wacky shenanigans!

I completely agree except when they are aiming at me. :) (Well, technically they would still be awesome. It's just that 'terrifying' gets added to the equation at that point, too. :o )

== Spring, 2006 ==

Chronos:

I can understand using his school as a reference. Whenever I think of a "school building", the ones I went to come to mind first.

The "Why are we here?! It's a Sunday?!" caught me by surprise. Reading through the archives, I wasn't even thinking of what day the comic was posted on.

Also, it's neat to see the comic in color. I never would have imagined Tedd had purple hair!

I don't see why Tedd or the German scientist would want to see someone brushing a desk with a toothbrush, but to each his own...

== August 26, 2008 ==

Crystal:

So there you have it, my thoughts of two years ago on this strip.

By the way, one thing I just noticed now - it says specifically here that the EGS cast are juniors.

I refer you to Rule 36.

As long as they actually know how to use it, very much so.

And if I didn't think this was a Noodle Incident where our imaginations are supposed to fill it in I'd ask Dan.

I'm aware that almost anything is a fetish. I just fail to see the attraction for many of those fetishes. Of course, chances are there most couldn't give an explanation other then "It's hot!"

They are pretty similar. Rule 36 causes Rule 34. Which leads one to wonder why Rule 36 came after Rule 34.

That bit certainly doesn't help matters at all.

This is EGS. In other words, it's perfectly reasonable for effect to precede cause. :)

That's certainly possible. We have no idea what their fathers' first names might be. :smug:
