Imagine what it would be like to actually see a new world, up close, with your own eyes. Or to step on one and look around and go for a bit of a walk. No, really: Close your eyes for 30 seconds and imagine it. Wow. 2024-05-19 Rerun commentary: When I…

Forgive me, father, for I have sinned. I have drawn dinosaurs and hominids in the same cartoon.     —Gary Larson 2024-05-11 Rerun commentary: Depending how you interpret that green baseplate, there may be another anachronism here. There was no grass in…

Okay, look. I've never been to Brighton. Perhaps it's a perfectly nice place. But I have been to several seaside towns in England, and I have to say that when you come from Australia, an English beach—even in midsummer—doesn't quite live up to the…
