There's no "next" button on 2349? --108.162.219.250 18:44, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

The reason there's no Next button is that it's the newest comic. --162.158.158.43 21:04, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

Is this about something? I mean, it could be a commentary on the way politics handled Covid, some politicians taking terrible decisions, then saying it was a mistake and that science is still learning, but then still taking terrible decisions afterwards. 141.101.69.83 21:02, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

That's definitely my take on this comic. The similarity with certain political meetings in the covid situation is quite abvious, in my opinion. 90.127.120.72 16:02, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
I saw it as a send up of the agile development practices of Silicon Valley and many other businesses today. The principle is that if an idea is going to fail, you want it to fail fast, so you can learn and pivot quickly to a better idea. This can ideally result in a culture that values constructive failure. If taken too far, it can lead to sloppy practices, waste, and outright harm to customers and to the public.

The thing about icebergs, is that 9/10ths of them would be on fire, if they weren't kept underwater. Truth! 162.158.155.192 22:17, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

Deer don't gallop. Are you sure that's about the deer? 172.69.33.187 22:54, 24 August 2020 (UTC) Dear IP_address, deer most certainly do gallop. Since I'm a nice guy (rarely), I LMGTFYed that to confirm. Cellocgw (talk) 12:35, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

No deer run. 172.69.34.210 02:25, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

I don't think you can build an iceberk-proof airship. Or at least, you won't get it into air because it would be too heavy. -- Hkmaly (talk) 00:21, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

You make a ship iceberg proof by making it fly. You can't be sunk if you fly over. Hax (talk) 07:16, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

I think the "Is it really??" means "Is it really okay?", not "Is it really a mistake?". 162.158.183.137 11:03, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

Some airplanes crash into mountains. Some mountains look like icebergs. Therefore, some airplanes crash into some icebergs. These Are Not The Comments You Are Looking For (talk) 03:51, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

When Mao went to clear the sparrow but for the locust, it was 42% as deadly as fauna-mounted autocannons[edit]

Didn't the designer of the Titanic go down with ship? SanFranSam 172.69.35.53 04:25, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

Laughed[edit]

The part that made me laugh the hardest was the Citation Needed on the claim that there are no flying icebergs! Well played. BlakeFelix (talk) 11:03, 26 August 2020 (UTC)
