I was going through the Book of Aubron, and when I saw the recent night scene, I wondered if that was the Pleiades we were seeing. Then I followed this link:

Pikrass wrote:This page can answer some of these questions.


And at the bottom of the page, it says:
GLR wrote:What is your favorite astronomical entity?

The Pleiades.


That was the Pleiades we saw back there, wasn't it?
It's always been one of my favorite astronomical entities as well.

edited to fix the quote error, and because I seem to be too lazy to use Preview lately. :(

Onions are fine; what you don't want while rafting are leeks.

I thought it was the Pleiades as well, and Randall has mentioned it in and OtherComic before.

Hmmm. That reminds me. When you go sailing, onions are a particularly good staple food. The don't spoil easily, and cook up quickly. Add flavor to a lot of things and are fine just on their own. I took a sailing course in Outward Bound a long time ago (1976) and we ate onions with nearly every meal. A month of sailing off the Maine coast. Heaven. And if you can make onion rings as good as those you find at Robert's Seafood in Kittery Maine, you won't have to worry about minions. They will appear as if by magic. (Not an ad. I have no relation to them other than as a customer when I pass thru.) The double size lobster rolls are pretty good too. :D

It's simple: 3 to the power of 0 divided by 8 and the square root of 9 gives you utter heartbreak.
