#374 - Begin the proceedings
I love the barrister's outfit, including the wig.
yay update and heh i like the contempt for the court
Yay update, indeed. Worth the wait, but of course prefer less wait.
I also like the signs, especially the last one. "Something fundamentally wrong with the universe."
Hmm ... The text balloons are covering the slogans tho, here they are:
Frame 1: Dread for president!
Frame 3: Here There Be Pixies
Frame 6: 6x9 = 42
If I wasn't already a fan, the Hitchiker refrence would have forced me to become one. He He 6x9=42, but what is the question?
well, that's a change of style for feith... And it is kind of hard not to have contempt for the court
What is the meaning of life?
LOL... Comics like this one is why I really ought not to read CtS at work...
hard to not burst out in open laughter... *wipes a tear*
almost as effecient an effective as a real -human- court
Now this was worth waiting for. And the sight of Feiht in a wig and gown is strangely... excuse me, I need to go take a cold shower.
Liar! I'm sure she's stolen some golden tiles at some point.
YES! I'm Glad we're bacs on scheduel, mith.
Mith! I'm surprised!!! Dread has the same hair color twice!!! (panels 2 & 5)
Nah, different shade of red :)
But rpetty close, well spotted.
but if he had it wulden't suprise me, it's like , at some point he has to have the same color as before
(if you diden't get thet, it's bekose my logic somins just dond sound to good wen I put it into words :P)
Yay! New comic at last! Nice to be back on schedule...and to see something different! :P
Love the changing banner...and Feiht in robes. Hahaha.
"Do you have contempt for court?" :P
In the last panel, feiht's ears look like intennae. Like the outfit.
Did you know that 6x9 = 42 in base 13?
Quoted from the radio show of the HHG2TG:
"Since the last show we have recieved a lot of complaints from listeners that 6x9 is not 42. We knew that.
We have also got a message from a mathematics professor at Oxford stating that 6x9 is in fact 42, in base 13. That we must admit to not knowing."
Whats the green poster say? 'Here There'... what?
YAY new comic. does new comic dance. Then relizes she doesnt know what a new comic dance looks like. then dances more anyway.
the above comment was mine.
Here there be Pixies...
Heee! Feight looks so
in the barrister's outfit!
Serious Feiht? Isn't that a bit of an oxy-moron?
I like the way you did the dress.. what program are you useing?
Great play on words going on here...
Woo, definately worth the wait!
Maybe you could update the story so far again? Mith?
Wa nobody here... I leave now.
This time round he hasn't hammerd any nails in.
Now the dragon has a blanket like hes ready for bed.
I bet with all those kittens it would be pretty comfy.
egwene: No, he's not. There are infinite number of colors. I'm not sure about visible ones, but still there's much more of them that there is comic strips (and I mean on whole internet).
On the other hand, Mithandir can use only around 16 milions of them because of JPEG format limit (and monitors limit).
Correction: SVGA cards limit, not monitor ones.
Well ... I'm nitpicking here but ... the colour limit in computing is actually about 65000 colours. The 16 million figure is reached because all of those colours are available in 256 brightnesses. "bright red" and "dark red" are both the same colour (combination of hue and saturation).
Also, by the letter of the specs, SVGA only has 16 colours (4 bit).
I'll stop being picky now :P
Er ... correction, 92160 colours. 360 hues and 256 saturation levels.
Well...erm...despite the smallness in panel two, I can still kinda tell that it's a slightly different shade...number of colors regardless :P
Okay, nerdity strikes: Taking into account all of that, there are 8,493,465,600 colors, if I did the math right :P
Chevette Girl says:
All these calculations don't take into account any highlihgts you choose to give a particular hair colour... Granted, you can't really see that much unless you're as close as panel 5 or 6...
wow getting really detailed are we?
Dread wouldn't make a very good carpenter... he even hit a nail into his desk now.
(i would give him some poitns for trying really hard though)
It's very strange to see Feiht with grey hair, she looks like her own grandma, even though i suppose pixies don't really have grandmothers...
Is Abui an actual pixie? Or is she something else entirely? Because she's actually serious here...
Who here would actually vote for dread in a presidentual election? I kno i would it would be great to avoid war and serious stuff
unfortunately I have a feeling that a pixie president would start more wars than he/ she would stop...*shudders* imagine the chaos!
Glad to see you back.
where did you get your nickname?
WAM!!!! Alien this is urgent!! what is your last name??? honestly! you could be one of my teachers, maybe!! do you teach 6th grade, perchance???
Never taught a class in my life, luckily. For the students' sake, above all.
How come you think I might? Is your teacher an alien and/or an elf? ;)
i wish mine were.........school wouldnt be nearly as boring! tho a pixie'd be a neat teacher too...
I don't think you'd learn much with a pixie teacher but it would still be awesome!! :)
pixie teachers would probley teach pretty random stuff if the tought anything at all. Or maybe they would teach some pranksn'stuff. It's just fun to imagine.
yea... like learning how to remember to forget what you just learned! ....which really doesnt make all that much sense when you think about it... but it WOULD be interesting to learn...
It would be interesting to learn, but in effect that would mean learning to remember to forget that you just learned to remember to forget what you just learned about remembering to forget about...yeah, you get the idea. It would go on forever and would make no sense in practice. In theory it sounds sensical though. And fun :)Needless to say, class would be rather chaotic. But that would be what a pixie would want, right?
yup. wonder what homework assignments theyd give out?...hmm.....*evil grin*
wait a sec, where'd the cupboard go?
Homework? Do you think pixies would believe in homework? Seeing as it has the word 'work' in it? Now, if it were called homefun, or something equally pixified, maybe they'd assign it :P
ajemii -- I suspect that the mahogany case is either just off-frame in panel 2, or...
it has been taken off the books. :)
On the issue of 42, I always thought that 6x9=42 was in base 10 and accurate. It directly expresses why so little in the universe(practically nothing) makes sense unless taken out of context. What most people think of as putting into context is the equivalent of leaving the crust on your sandwich, when the entire loaf is just as linked.
NO it has more to do with just how nutty Douglas Adams could be while being so freakin awesome with how he portrays things that make no sense and yet at the same time could be entirely possible becuase of how he explains it. He is able to make u think about things in a way u wouldn't normally. And he can make jokes about existence and the way we usually see it.
Fieht is a very cute judge. Myrhad has found some neew sleeping buddies. I hat to point this out , but, 6x9=42 is wrong. I am sure you ment to do that. Thanks a bunch for the new strip. Great work.
Arya: Yes, it's intentional. As others have mentioned it's a reference to Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy (HHGTTG), where 42 is the answer to "the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything".
Given the answer, people just needed the question and through some experiments they arrive at the question "what do you get when you multiply six by nine". As you noticed, this is 54, not 42, which leads the main characters to conclude "I always knew there was something fundamentally wrong with the universe."
That as background info for those who haven't read the books or listened to the radio sereis (the movie does NOT count).
Why the heck did i get on the subject of pixies doing HW????
OH! my teacher is somewhere in europe on vacation right now.
OOh!! who knows the cyclops riddle??
My teacher was in south africa during the 2004 tsunami around christmas.
i like potatoes.
and shinyyys of course
Heh heh still changing banner. Also love how they change council it is great!
I wish all court proceedings went like this...
parking tickets would be so much fun
Hmm... Love the Hitchhiker's Guide reference in the last panel!
