The pressure of being totally fucking smart =p
I remember those hidden 3d pictures, I find that focusing to the glass covering it helps me to see the hidden picture in the colour pattern.
interestingly, I find that if you focus together panels 1 & 3 together you get floating walky eyebrows and projected pajama patterns!
Whoa. And if you cross your eyes with panels 3 & 5, you get blinking Walky mouth!
And a picassoesque Dorothy.
All I see is a sailboat.
Sure it’s not a schooner?
All I see is the Eifel Tower.
All I see is Walky’s underpants.
Oh, yeah, I see it too!
I think I see the Voyager. -__- Take me far away from this world Spock.
Now if you raise the book to the ceiling you can make those spaceships fly
Better yet, throw them across the room.
Man, I read all of a textbook, even the boring parts, for fun.
Well, I used to. See, all the way up through high school, I tended to be a bit ahead of the curve, since the first few lessons tended to be review or other stuff I already knew. So, I’d be bored and read ahead in the textbook, and it tended to be more interesting than the lecture. And by the time they got to whatever part of the textbook, I’d be reading beyond that, and I’d eventually end up reading through my textbooks multiple times. Since teachers in high school almost never teach outside of the textbook, it was a good way to let me pass my classes without much effort. In retrospect, I could have been one of the top students if I’d actually bothered to study. I wish I had.
Are you me?
Are you both the anti-me?
So if you two meet, the world will explode.
or would the me and the anti-me spontaneously erupt in makeouts?
just made think of that part in Timecop when the past and future senator guys touched and got all jacked up
Seriously, I was the guy who could figure out everything cept history just by glancing over it. I was the Walky of my school. As soon as you set a book in front of me, I go ‘… What pages do I have to do so you can take this thing away from me?’
My eyes immediately focused on the word sex. Glad to know what my brain’s priorities are.
Really? I got amygdala. Weird. Wanna trade?
Aw yeah, JebJeb! Me too!
I got hippocampus. Wacky.
It’s the first word of the middle paragraph.
No surprise that other people focused on it too (including me).
I focused immediately on Spatial Mapping.
I somehow got “spatial environment” even though they’re not even on the same line
I got “Arousing”
But Walky, you must complete your destiny as the new Pagemaster!!!
I have never ever in my life been able to see one of those hidden image thingies.
I know how Walky feels. A few of my automotive textbooks have been nothing but walls of text.
Unless he’s trying to sound like Grimlock, I think it should read If “I” squint real hard, etc…
I didn’t even notice this until I read your comment. I kind of like it better this way though.
Dammit I want to read the text he is reading…
Dude, Walky has the best textbook. I wish mine had spaceships!
What is he not reading, exactly?
A peanut head for Walky, my friend
For like the noble bean comes a plethora of uses
300, at least,. by the renowned Carver’s end
And I’ll have ten times that from what our colleague deduces.
But be semper vigalins for the sloth of youth
waste not the promises at our aid
Go forward and burn birght until comes death
And all our path may your light be laid
You know, it’s nice to read a version of the Brilliant But Lazy trope that isn’t 100% sympathetic to the brilliant but lazy individual in question.
The text is from the Wikipedia article on “Sex Differences in Humans”.
Wow, so in the world of DOA, it’s okay for textbooks to outright plagiarize Wikipedia. Neat!
It’ll be a plot point later.
The textbook has a note about the Creative Commons License in the back.
Even if he was doing it correctly, just reading the textbook is a very inefficient method of studying. If this is Dorothy’s strategy it would explain why she constantly has to forgo social activities; she’s wasting time reviewing mindless banter she already knows.
You gotta constantly test yourself and isolate problem areas.
Is it just me or does the shading on dorothy’s lips make it look like she has a permanent cheeto-stache?
what is seen cannot be unseen.
That makes this avatar so much better now.
Or it would, if the avatar showed up.
I agree that your avatar is now at least 50% more rad.
Maybe it *is* a cheeto-stache. If she’s got him studying, it’s entirely possible that he’s convinced her to experiment with various unnaturally orange snack foods. (They’re the gateway to those “pizza” rolls that taste nothing like pizza, y’know.)
Pizza rolls are chosen food of the messiah!
I expect it’s just a bit of caramel.
No Joyce Disapproved Hanky Panky? Poor Walky—bring in da munchies and cheeto like nomms as a poor substitute. Back in the 80′s there’d be bootleg animae–Gundam, Macrossu, Bubble Gum Crisis vhs playing on tv for a soundtrack, while in background roomies would be arguing if Han shot first or why is Wesley as douche. Is that asshole next playing that freaking New Order song again? No it’s that new shit– Wrap I think they call it. Who drank all the f__king Dew? Hey, you can’t smoke in here. No, not even that shit.
Willis you wouldn’t believe the right-wing banners I’m getting when downloading yer toon. Beyond the pale for even the extreme stuff we’re getting in VA. “Why is Obama betraying Our matriage values?” Can you get Ethan to respond for me?
… Strange. Only banners I see are those directly associated with the webcomic. Could you have gotten yourself tangled up with some sort of right wing Ad-Ware, perhaps?
And as to the question at hand? because HE thinks its the right thing to do; even if the rest of us dont.
I believe Ethan’s response would be, “What, me? Why should I respond? Why would you think I could say anything particular about that subject? Let’s go, Joyce.” And awkwardly putting his hand around her shoulders.
I like his study skills!
“So have you learned anything new yet”? With that smile? Is she kidding?
Okay, admittedly, I never read a textbook in all my educational career (except briefly in the early years learning it was a bad idea, and of course to find homework problems assigned out of it once I got to college and started doing homework), but even adapting for that bias I can’t see Dorothy’s comment as anything but dippy, if not an embossed and glided invitation for sarcastic comeback.
Aw, come on Walky – anything else that textbook has to say about gender canNOT be as interesting as the bit of neuropsych on that page! I want to read it! I didn’t know the hippocampus is larger in women than in men – I knew the amygdala is slightly larger in men than in women, tho. Although, it does say, “This was proven…” which shows whoever wrote that book is not a researcher.
In fairness, the textbook is a Wikipedia article.
Oh look at that smile. She’s just like me, loves learning for the sake of learning. I knew she was my favorite character!
