In this comic, [[Cueball]] and [[Megan]] are going out for a nighttime walk, to "unplug" and get away from technology, to ask the "big questions". However, they soon realize that they would have much preferred a walk ''with'' technology, as it could make it much easier for them to find the way home, see where they're going, and make them feel safer, despite coming with Internet trolls.

[Cueball and Megan are walking under the night sky.]

Megan: The internet is so overwhelming for me these days. It feels like everyone I know is yelling all the time.

[Frame is zoomed out. Stars are visible]

Megan: That's why it's so nice to unplug. Leave the phones at home,go for a walk, and look up at the stars.

Megan: It helps you focus on what really matters.

[frame is normal again.]

Cueball: Like "Where the hell are we?"

Megan: And "Why did I leave my phone at home? It has my map and flashlight."

Cueball: "Are there mountain lions around here? Did you hear a twig break?"

Megan: Yeah, the big questions!

Discussion

The attempt on Nordberg's life left me shaken and disturbed, and all the questions kept coming up over and over again, like bubbles in a case of club soda. Who was this character in the hospital? And why was he trying to kill Nordberg? And for whom? Did Ludwig lie to me? I didn't have any proof, but somehow, I didn't entirely trust him either. Why was the 'I Luv You' not listed in Ludwig's records? And if it was, did he know about it? And if he didn't, who did? And where the hell was I? 141.101.76.46 17:43, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Looks like the cows have come home to roost. ProphetZarquon (talk) 20:05, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Ironically, the mountain lion's Macbook is running Snow Leopard. ProphetZarquon (talk) 20:08, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

I feel the Mountain Lion question is to point out that if they had their phones they could look up the answer to this question, find out if they should be on the lookout for them. NiceGuy1 (talk) 04:54, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
