2155: "Swimming"

Image
Title text: “You don't know how high above you the sky goes, but you're not freaking out about that." "Well, NOW I am!"

If you're not swimming or treading water, 7 feet is just as dangerous as 70 feet.

Title text: "If you study graphs in which edges can link more than two nodes, you're more properly called a hyperedgelord."

To replicate the Bunsen burner trial, use the burner as the heat source in an absorption refrigerator.

Re: 1492: "Dress color"

OK, that explains the background of the dress, but I still don't get the comic. Is the dress supposed to appear to be a different color on each side of the comic? To me the color of the dress on both sides looks the same as the colors in the strip down the middle. Is it because I'm slightly red-gree...
