That's hilarious!

It occurs to me that maybe lasers are not the best choice.

What are the numbers on shooting bullets at the raindrops?

What if we shoot missiles at them?

Umbrellas?

So if the autoclaves you can live in were posted post-comic, why the link in the what-if in the first place?

Is there some back-story here?

The joke is that there are (or, now, were) no autoclaves you can live in.

In summer, the entire state of Texas is an autoclave that you can live in (in theory at least.)
