"Well THERE'S yer problem"
I still think the cloudy, semi-transparent effect is pretty nifty here. I also think it's fairly convenient that Trigger and Avatar should stumble onto a device they don't recognize precisely at the moment I got tired of writing page after page of technobabble. How convenient!

Also, this makes me wish we could have gotten a closer look at the labels and tags of more of these boxes. I have a feeling that this isn't the only invention where the inventor got a little bit "creative" with the name (even if it does seem to be the only one where these two couldn't figure out the inner workings on their own)

And speaking of knowing things, be sure to vote on Top WebComics and see the latest Incentive Comic. If I do say so myself, I think this one's pretty dang hilarious (not that I'm biased or anything)

I don't know about you, but I always try to act more careful around anything called S.A.N.D.

And the incentive; Books are awesome!
I do wish it was slightly more practical to cart around a few bookshelves worth during travel.
And I agree about the irrelevant information. ... And I have friends that think I may know (or tell them..) too much of it, but I disagree. You can never know too much!

Oh... My... Gravy... I totally didn't notice that acronym waiting to happen!

Also, I can't speak for anyone else, but irrelevant information is the only kind I can ever retain. I can try and fail to commit a fact to memory for ages, then that same fact can pop up as random trivia loosely associated with something else, and it sticks forever.

Sometimes it seems like the sum of the probability that information will be needed and the probability that it will be remembered is a constant.

That's so smart it took me, like, five tries to read it all the way through (That makes TWO comments that I'm totally gonna borrow from in the future!)
