Graphing a Rollercoaster

Is the world upside-down or is it an inverted coaster?

I usually do the he Height vs. Time graph as a set-up, which looks like a rollercoaster, but they can't figure out why it doesn't turn around and finish where it starts like a ''real'' coaster does.

Memorial Day 2012

Were I under some kind of contractual obligation to sponsors or syndicators, I would probably toss out my usual format and insert a lame attempt at a patriotic panel of artwork featuring my main characters, possibly acting somewhat uncharacteristic of themselves.

Thankfully, I am not, so I can just come right out and wish every a Happy Memorial Day, and hope that it is a happy one for you, and not a somber day remembering someone close to you who was lost defending our freedoms. For those who did lose someone precious, I dedicate this day to you and to them and give you all my thanks and prayers.

And I hope those untouched in this way do take a moment out sometime today, with or without the parades, flags and flyovers, to remember those who have protected our freedoms.

Since I don't have any past Memorial Day comics to point to -- I guess I had similar feelings then, as well, -- I'll repost the link to What is a Vet?, which I found on the Internet back in the late 90s.

Happy Memorial Day.

Daily Reflections

Whether it's the x-axis, the y-axis, y = x or any combination, it's good to have these little daily reflections.

And upon further reflection: It's even better to have the same font sets at home and at work for those times when you start something in one place and then you suddenly decide to rework it at another.

And when you get toward the end, it becomes more of a waiting average.

There could be only one punchline. Until we release Highpointer II: Non-Euclidean.

From my computer background, when I hear ''hex'', I think base 16.

Don't go changing to try to please me. You're significant just the way you are.

Works for crop circles, too, I guess.

The Short Straw

If each contestant has a fair chance at drawing the short straw, then there's also a fair chance that this wouldn't be the worst game show on TV.

The small comic size is due to the fact that I was zoomed in when I was drawing it without realizing. No wonder I was having some difficulties.
