Let me guess: his eyes are now glowing. D:
Rule #1 of science: NEVER eat the science
Unless you’re working in food science! Actually, after homogenising, reconstituting and partially inverting it, I don’t think I’d want to eat my creation.
My 7th grade science teacher on the first day of class told a story about a kid who realized that the class was making alka-seltzer. The kid apparently stood up, shouted out the product’s slogan, and downed it. Needless to say he ended up getting his stomach pumped.
Probably a good rule to follow then. Eating the science is what test subjects are for.
Perhaps he was Blinded by Science!
Judging from him not knowing how a Ham Sandwich tastes, pigs (as we know them) are propably extinct by the time of S.P.I.R.E.
That or they have been uplifted to human level intelligence, making eating them a moral no-go.
Another wierd theory:
The “Endstone” reality is just a very big, full imersion RPG-game. It started with a world, let it run 5000 Years, then inserted the Players as people “born” into it (with fitting memories for growing up).
The “goal” is to unite the stones, then the VR will end.
With the words of Kaff Tagon (http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2007-11-11): “Put that much brainpower in one place without oversight, you’ll either get an explosion or a game of Dungeons & Dragons”.
Interesting theory. 🙂
He looks normal enough in the two insets in panel two. It’s after he wipes his mouth with his hand that the others look shocked. I’m guessing that his hand wiped part of his face off. Drew is probably right about the rule #1 of science.
NO!!!…You’re not ready!!…A five-course dinner is too much! The equipment can’t handle it!!!
A proper scientist would first have analyzed the sandwich before eating it – proves how yummy it looked!
Methinks he’s drunk with power…
I’m thinking the world is the result of 0-sum equasion balances exasperated by the butterfly effect, and the SPIRE is insulated from the quantum effect because of the nature of the hardware.
In laymans terms, every time he makes a little change, it makes a much more drastic change to ‘reality’ outside of the SPIRE, but they don’t know that. When he finishes phase 2 they’re going to emerge into the current world, 5000 years later.
And when has “We should proceed directly into phase 2” ever NOT inspired those looks of terror?
Cool theory. We shall see. 🙂 And yes, it’s the “Phase 2” comment that’s surprising the other scientist. The coloring makes it look like his eyes are glowing but that’s not the case.
How can the sandwich, that he created with the power of his imagination, taste BETTER than he imagined? Sorry to ask the obvious.
LOL. Great point. 🙂 It’s very zen: “Can an imaginary sandwich taste better than you imagined?”
Also, I think Simon might be showing a little over-confidence.
