The three panel format lends itself to more than just jokes.
That’s Robert’s childhood story, by the way; not mine. The block time stuff is mine, though, not Robert’s, and Paul Davies explains it here better than I could in this annotation space. I am wont to get sentimental, especially around this time of year and especially regarding the passage of time, and sometimes Robert allows it to seep into the comic. I’m happy to let him arbitrate that; looking out from the inside is never as clear as looking in from the outside.
Thank you all, each and every one of you, for reading this silly comic we make. I’ll see you next year.
