Ninja power: vanish!

Jim gives up and runs for the border. Well, hobbles.

You'll learn more about the robot thing later.

Some days I want to upload a lot of comics. I didn't like uploading the last page before uploading this page, for example. So I have been pushing it a bit - I think I uploaded a comic every 20 hours.

I have a question and I want to say/type something that'll seem really weird. Question, does Jim have a bad leg or did he "pitch a tent'? Weird, At certain points mostly because of the hair, to me Mary has looked like Huey from The Boondocks.

View, you're mean for making Mary spend the night alone... can't you see how lonely she is by her expression in the last panel???

Well, I've got two more pages to drive the point home...

"... or are you just glad to see me?"

Poor Jim. It's hard to walk with a wooden leg!

An interesting companion robot in the photo... I suppose depth perception is over rated (15% of human beings with two eye have no binocular depth perception)... Monocular cues require a fair amount of processing power... so that must be quite some bot!

Of course some may have argued when this unit was being prototyped, that it would have been more aesthetically pleasing for the optics to be off-center and balanced with a painted eye patch. *_^ arhh!

The eye doesn't simply see light: it's like a kinect. Each pixel is not just color, but also range (and temperature). Binocular is not as useful in such designs, except to insure you have a backup eye...

Oooh, like a Kinect sensor device... It's an active inferred and passive ambient light...

Also, just a quick grammar note:

"You see gretel more than me " implies that Mary sees gretel more often than she sees Jim, seeing as the word 'me ' is the objective first person pronoun. correct grammar should read "you see gretel more than I do."

Sorry, just my anal tendencies coming out...

That's what I originally had, but "I do" is longer enough that it makes things awkward for the text box.

Besides, he's human, he's allowed to make mistakes.

But you're not human, and you are allowed no mistakes... j/k...
