...okay, so what's my excuse this time? The page is a full day late, so it's gotta be a good one, right? Actually, it kinda is. I got started on a new Conventional Wisdom page Sunday afternoon, right around the time I really SHOULD have been starting on this page. I told myself there was plenty of time, though, since I'd already drawn that page done while I was still at the con. This would just be a simple matter of editing up the finished art rather than drawing something from scratch... so of course that draft turned out be so sloppy and unsalvageable that I would up having to re-draw it from scratch anyway. And of course, by that point, I was already running waaaay behind schedule and had to take a really inconvenient nap and everything just spiraled out of control and here we are.

And you know what the worst part is? This was supposed to be the QUICK page. I knew there a number of pages comic up that were going to be pretty complicated to put together, so this little ditty that's two-thirds a block of cursive text was supposed to be the page I could knock out in a hurry and get a head start on the trickier stuff. Ain't no way that's happening now, though, which is forcing me into a really, REALLY obnoxious predicament. I know I already did this in VERY recent memory, but I'm gonna have to make this the only page of Far Out There that goes up this week. If I try to scramble and get something up by Friday, it's just gonna wind up late again, and throw all of NEXT week into disarray too. And I've got a lot of real life to worry about next week, so trying to get caught up then would be even harder than it is right now. So, yeah, taking a break from deadlines for the rest of the week to hopefully get a head start on next week's stuff. At the very least, I'll try to get a few more Conventional Wisdom's out of the way so I won't have to keep dividing my attention. Sorry, guys!

If nothing else, at least I managed to get a new Voting Incentive posted on the correct day...

@ Comic: Wow, someone listened, and wrote it down. I'm surprised. Even if it's Alphonse.

@ Incentive: Make it a bunch of sand-sized bots and randomly sized eye-bots that either uses the "cowboy hat" as a place to store it's processor, or uses a "cowboy hat" as a way to retain it's identity, while constantly changing it's appearance by temporarily using nearby environments as mediums to allow it to properly affect the world around itself.

It's mouth would typically be huge due to it having difficulty with the concept beyond "sound comes out of this hole".

OOOoooh, that's an interesting idea. I mean, the fact that it's supposed to speak and act as a single character would make it hard to depict as a hive mind/swarm, but a constantly fluctuating shape WOULD make a lot of things simpler to do.

@ Blitz: That would be an argument for it's Cowboy Hat containing it's Central Processor. There's one mind, a few hundred thousand bodies, and something like 30 eyes. It generates voice by purposefully vibrating hollow tubes, usually made out of the swarm bodies. The swarm bodies are great at keeping together, but find it hard not to "assimilate" material they purposefully pick up, causing it to need to purposefully assimilate things in order to do things like use a pen without having to keep the pen, or hand a glass of water to someone.

Removing an item from assimilation becomes easier after a certain amount of time has passed since the initial assimilation due to side effects required to make the assimilation work properly, in both hardware and software portions relating to assimilation.

Alphonse is the only person left in the entire Universe who uses cursive handwriting. The real mystery is who the heck did he learn it from?!?!?
