Perimeter

If you're given the perimeter and the fact that it's a regular pentagon, it's solvable.
And, yes, someone once used the "find x" gag on a worksheet.
Co-incidentally, he repeated the year. Again.


Farmville Funnies #1

A bonus comic:



Farmville is a trademark of Zynga, Inc.
Since I didn't do the artwork, it's not going on the CG site as an "official" comic. It will probably show up on my Facebook page instead.

Whoops. This was posting on the CG site yesterday. Forgot to post it here.

Until I was fifteen, cranberry sauce was served by the slice.
... and we liked it that way!

Now get out of the kitchen until the dishes need to be done.

10Q! 10Q Very Much!

Maybe it's a case of the Strip That Would Not Die. I don't know.

Someone, not me, Stumbled my Combining Like Terms cartoon (which is also here). I got a bunch of hits from that posting.

Then about two weeks ago, there was another spike in the hit count, for the same cartoon from the same source.

Now, in the past two days, StumbleUpon has sent 6,000 more visitors in my direction, mostly heading for this one cartoon (and some going to Speed Limit II, which I didn't know was on their site).

Hopefully, I'm getting some positive feedback. (Sadly, I can't read it here at school.)

The funny thing is that that particular joke was sitting on the back burner, waiting for a break to post it. It was, basically, a back-up comic for when I was otherwise coming up blank. Guess I should re-evaluate what should be on the back burner.

And, "Thank You" for stopping by for the past two years and 400 comics.

Oblivious or Illiterate?

I don't know if you label being unable to read a clock "illiteracy", but it should be called something because it's more widespread than you can imagine.

For my younger readers: once upon a time people use to have a separate machine next to their house phone that saved messages, and it was called an answering machine.

For my even younger readers: once upon a time people use to have a separate phone hanging on the wall in their homes, and it was called their home phone.

It was an electrifying campaign season, and I'm glad it's over.

And, of course, you know that Watts are Volts, right?

Losing an electron makes you positive. Losing an election makes you negative.
And, please, no Chemistry professors pointing out the inaccuracies in the cartoon because the biggest one is the fact that protons don't talk!

... although sometimes electrons wave.
