Linear Regression – Chapter 8, Act 2, Strip 107

Yeah, adding the weight of a jeep to the weight of a tank won’t constitute fundamental change, but incremental change is better than nothing, right? Right? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Yeah…I know it’s often hardly better than nothing, and it might be here…but, hey, it’s supposed to be a hopeless situation, and Biff is supposed to be desperate, anyway.

And yeah, in addition to playing Snuka, and everything else he does, Lee Douglas is also responsible for making the floor marks the actors need in order to know where to stand. It’s uncomfortable and pays next to nothing, but it’s not really painful, humiliating or dangerous, so it’s actually one of Lee’s better jobs. And Lee needs the extra money, because his rent keeps going up…fortunately for him, he at least isn’t faced with the problem of having to convince his employer, Nolan, of this fact. Since Nolan is also Lee’s landlord, he’s actually quite well aware of it…

As for the scenes of disasters dancing before Gregory’s eyes, I’ve again foregone the use of pictures of actual disasters…or at least recent actual disasters, in the case of the first one. As for the last one…well, that movie might actually qualify as an actual disaster, but to the best of my knowledge it didn’t cause anybody to die.
I mean, ultimately we just don’t know what gave Roger Ebert cancer…and while this movie seems like a pretty likely candidate, it’s not a proven fact…>_>

And, yeah. Heroic Gregory! Not sure we’ve ever really seen that before…

More on Monday.

  1. Wait… where are you going with this, Gregory?

    Actually. IS this Heroic? Or just “Fuck it, I’m tired of waiting to die”? Because I could see either of those interpretations.

    1. Hard to say, actually. Frankly, I’m not entirely sure if there even is a difference between being heroic and being tired of waiting to die? I’ve never been heroic, so I just got zero experience with that sort of thing. XD
