Finding your way – Chap. 6, Act 4, Strip 2

Still in establishing mode for the new act, as you would have guessed. The take-away lesson for today is: never buy animated naval charts. Ask wether the chart is based on a .jpg or a .gif file, and if it was a .gif, make sure it wasn’t an animated one. (Additional hint: don’t get into an argument about the pronounciation of ‘gif’, it’s not worth it*). If the vendor looks confused, have your eyes checked, especially if it isn’t a solitary incident. There might be something about your eyesight you aren’t aware of.

Of course this strip is a bit unrealistical (for whatever that matters in a kaiju story) with regard to the current state of navigation technology…but it was either that or taking another cheap dig at Apple Maps. >__>

More on Thurs…uh, Monday!





*additional additional hint: don’t get into an argument about whether it’s a ‘chart’ or a ‘map’, either.
