  1. I remem­ber the inverse square butter gun from our physics text­book fresh­man year!

  2. Greg says:

    Yes! Excel­lent!

    Unfor­tu­nately, I have no idea if it’s a common physics metaphor. It might be that only those of us reared on Hewitt’s “Conceptual Physics” will get it.

  3. Carlo says:

    I’m pretty sure it’s a fairly common anal­ogy in intro physics classes. At least, Hewitt didn’t make it up.

  4. Gary says:

    Awe­some strip today!

    At first I thought he had gotten it to destroy teddy bears 😀

  5. Why did Roy’s mood change so quickly? Is it a) dis­con­ti­nu­ity, b) a good night sleep, or c) none of the above?

  6. Greg says:

    Gary: Glad you enjoyed it 🙂

    Joe: B, except more so, because more than just a day has passed. It’s winter now!

  7. I thought it just snowed a lot overnight. But, yes, I see that ‘It’s Winter Now’.
