I'm actually one small research project short of a degree. Popsicle sticks and glitter you say? It could work, just throw in a data logger.
Recently I've been sad to read that Zipper is giving up on his tenured student status, but I was heartened to read he might manage to graduate after all. If he finishes his bachelor's degree, I think he should consider graduate school. His experience spending over a decade obtaining a degree could serve him well as a PhD student.
This site is excellent and so is how the subject matter was explained. I also like some of the comments too. Looking forward to your next post.
Zonk should be aware that the climate around Boulder has early killing frosts. I hope he does not set a poor example by becoming an indoor grower. A greenhouse would be perfect!
There's so much completion going on. What's happening, doesn't Walden have a life-long learning faculty? You're making me scared of what's coming next.
At some point, surely Rick is going to stumble across The Big Story. Perhaps he'll hit the road a la Steinbeck and write Travels with Zipper.
Oh gawd: those four in one car bound for Boulder? Sheer madness. Please! On the Road for the present age of insanity...
If his fantasy life includes The Death of Marat, Jeff must have been awake and paying attention at some point during his time at Walden.
I am a retired world history teacher. Thanks for the very well done reference to The Death of Marat in today's strip. It really made me feel good.
Whoa, man. The Death of Marat image is harsh. Did Raz do that to himself?
I love the civilized jab at social media today. And I laughed out loud at the nod to Marat in his bathtub. Perfecto!
I hope today's Marat reference does not foretell The Death of Sorkh Razil. Please don't kill him off!
Nice nod to Jacques-Louis David in today's penultimate panel, yo. GBT is a class act through and through.
I knew all those years studying art history would pay off, even if only in a laugh!
I love today's homage to Marat. Does Jeff's ego know no bounds?
Nice reference (Jeff in his bathrub) to The Death of Marat. Yeah, social media threaten to do that to people...
I hope the visual reference to The Death of Marat doesn't foreshadow bad things for the Red Rascal.
We weren't shown Zonker telling B.D. or Boopsie good-bye. He doesn't have to, as they know he will always be back. As for Sam, we see her standing there, alone, for the first time as a confident young woman now, and... oh, man, it reminds me so much of when Alex got married. We've followed Sam through her childhood, she always had her Zonker and her toys, and now she's the newest member of the next generation. When did that happen?
