### Have One

Have One what? I don't know. But have one anyway.

I thought about making this a TV series in the world of the AnthroNumerics(tm), and I even thought about giving this number 1 eyes and labeling it an Anthronumeric(tm). Or maybe it actually exists in that world. Who's to say? Other than me, at some point?

Maybe Ian (1) might sport a new hairdo for a while.

This is "fair use" and satire, to the best of my understanding. No challenge to IP rights is intended.

### Too Fast

Watch out. Ken might take that as a challenge.

As we know from Summer 2008, Ken has a heavy foot with driving.

For those who are curious about the math, the speed of light is (in science classes) c = 3 x 108 m/s. I always learned it as 186,000 miles per second. Since there are 3600 seconds in an hour, that would be just shy of 670 million miles per hour (allowing for rounding errors).

So 67 mph is 1/10,000,000th of the speed of light.

The background is from photo I took on an apple-picking trip in upstate New York about a decade or so ago.

### Server Farm

You have to grow them somewhere.

Oddly, this comic started as something more absurb that would've left people scratching their heads saying "I don't get it". And then "server" came to mind.

It wasn't until I was almost done (after several days of working on this, and mulling it over) that I remembered that I'd done a Cubicle farm comic a long time ago. Ironically, I didn't fence in the servers like I did in the other comic.

### How Many Desks?

When math teachers proctor science exams...

The problems are left as an exercise for the reader ... or the teacher, if one wishes to use them in class. It can be stipulated that there are whole numbers of students and desks.

These are not Calendar Math problems (meaning that they didn't appear on a published calendar), but they would work for a calendar because the answer is not greater than 31. You wouldn't want more than 31 students at the same time anyway! (The maximum number is subject to contract negotiations, of course.)

### School Life #35: Can't Even

(Click on the comic if you can't see the full image.)

It's just an odd day.

I guess it's a good thing that Mark came along. Otherwise, Shaun and Isabel might've had a problem.

Comic note: I was originally going for nine, and then I thought I could add another triple. But then that would've been an even number, and someone would've pointed that out. (Granted, I do like comments.) But I was able to squeeze it Freedom, Serenity (Ningjing) and Bibi, who (I believe) haven't appeared in a School Life comic before. I think it's because I imagine them to be at least a year older than the other students.

And if anyone is wondering, from left to right: Kyung (Ky), Brigid, Katie, Mark, Shaun, Isabel, Vaughn, Hal, Sven, Freedom, Serenity(Ningjing), Bibi, Daisy, Missy, and Vanessa.

According to my Character page, neither Brigid and Katie have actually been named in the comic yet, but at this point, I don't imagine changing those names.
