Man, the perspective in the second panel looks kinda weird. Well, it does to me anyway.

Quick question, would activating one sprinkler turn all of them on (assuming they worked properly), or just the one? And how long would they stay on for that matter? I think activating the sprinklers might result in a bit more then a puddle, but I'm not really sure.

Depends on the system, but generally the metal-flower types have a little bit of metal in them which needs to melt before it goes off, so the fire has to be near it. But, some systems are automated so that when fire's detected, they all go off at once. Schools would probably have the former.

Eh, I think it's too earlier to be sure of that conclusion. It's amorphous after all--it could go all Stretch-Armstrong and take the lighter from them. :evil:

that smilie looks sort of fire-like...

The first panel's perspective is actually just as odd. OK, maybe not technically perspective, but we're apparently seeing a cross-section of the ceiling for some reason.

Crystal, 2008: Ah, 2-D "platform" game perspective. I used to draw that way.
