Re: 2022: "Sports Champions"

Any more real ones?

Alan Ball - world cup winner with England football/soccer team

I can also think of the cricketer Jake Ball, but you'd probably have to be his mum to call him a champion at the time of writing.

Re: 1994: "Repairs"

'Randall tries to fix things and makes it worse' is an ongoing joke isn't it?

Strips 349, 1171, 1739, and 1780.

Re: 1829: "Geochronology"

I thought I could tell whether an era is real or not, but this comic proved me wrong. The "Upper Pomeranian" era sounds legit to me.. The fun part of this is that there is a (linguistic) connection. The names in the comic (and most of the comments) are derived from place names. Dalmatia i...

Re: Escape from Raptors

You float endlessly through the nothing of the destroyed spacetime continuum. You think of the world you left behind, and are filled will regret.

Re: 1202: "Girls and Boys"

Girls who are boys who do boys like they're girls... Why Jupiter specifically? Because it's bigger and therefore better.
