Because coming up with wacky sounding things from Ichabod's past is one of the most enjoyable parts of this job. Have fun speculating what all those things are!

Also, YAY! I managed to get an extra page done before MAGFest! Hopefully, that means the Conventional Wisdom update will go without a hitch, which in turn will hopefully mean that Voting Incentives will be back on Friday!

The Cap'n has it all under control.
And if he doesn't, Ichabod knows enough people to change that.

We've heard of Black Hole Invaders before, haven't we?

I want to meet The One Who Sleeps Behind Sleep. We could swap notes.

I like some of the implications here.
Never-before-seen spacial phenomena with unknown properties?
Easy - just call any one of these dozen people/groups that are on good terms with Ichabod.
Nope. Nobody can help. (Likely because Ichabod is the one people would go to for help with Stilez, if they knew)

@CptNerd: If you want a hat, you're just going to have to get your frequent-tow card punched the required number of times. It wouldn't be fair if they just gave them out to just anybody.

Distant Future Parlor Games
In the Future, people all across the Universe will play "Six Degrees of Ichabod" - it turns out that anyone anywhere in the entire cosmos is connected to Ichabod within six relationships. Usually it doesn't even take that many.

Are they Peter-Framptonian Astro-Witches? I bet they are.

@ Seros Senric: Personally, I predict The One Who Sleeps Behind Sleep is an entity that can't sleep in our dimension, but if it goes into someone's dreams, it can't do anything BUT sleep.

@Number 6: Well, that depends on your point of view. The Important people play "Six Degrees from Ichabod". There, they try to see who, ignoring the people immediately around them, is the furtherest from having direct contact with Ichabod (ignoring calling for him through the Nitpicker's Association). Most are only two or three degrees, though.

Ichabod really is The Most Interesting Man In The Universe.

He must make a ton of money in endorsements.

@Darius Drake - The best thing about the Important people playing "Six Degrees From Ichabod" is that Frank always loses!

Darius Drake (Guest), February 24th, 2016, 6:53 am

@ Number 6: Nah... Frank forgets who Ichabod is, and thus doesn't play, assuming that he's unimportant. And when he does play with people who know what they're doing, he gets disqualified for trying to cheat (saying that he's seven degrees from him).

Well, that, or he can win due to not ever giving out his phone number to anyone. Either or.

Number 6 (Guest), February 24th, 2016, 10:56 am

@Darius Drake: The other important people probably want to pretend not to know Frank, because that causes them to lose the game when they play with anyone else since they're now only 2 steps away from Ichabod. Then again, that's probably not the only reason they want to pretend not to know Frank.

Darius Drake (Guest), February 25th, 2016, 5:14 pm

@ Number 6: No, they claim to have no way to contact Frank. He's the "5th most important person in existence" or some such bull, so they can't say they don't know him. However, due to his... personality, he likely doesn't give out his phone number all that much, and many of the people he DOES give it out to, are likely to either have a similar personality to Frank, or throw away the number quickly, if they can. And, Fank being Fank, almost everyone without that direct phone number need to go through six or seven other people before getting to him, interestingly enough.

That's THIRD Most Important!! Get it right!!

The hitchhiker's guide the the galexy
I'm a little late but this comic specifically made this universe seem more hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy-ish.
