#84 Waste of Likes and Dislikes

D:Someone's trash can show what is liked and disliked. From the looks of it someone likes/dislikes candy, apples, and broccoli. -- This is an interesting observation made from the perspective of a naughty dog. When you think of trash, images of sordid and degrading rot are manifested in one's mind. Yet, if someone loves chocolate, you find lots of candy wrappers in the trash. I always try to help reduce the amount of trash I produce. That is why, when I'm at the store, I buy the jumbo sized candy bar instead of the fun-sized one. Less trash. More yummy to my tummy.

Remember to recycle, reduce, reuse!

#83 One Side and the Other

B: I wonder what it's like on the other side of the world. D: Probably a lot like this In spite of the space which separates the parts of the world, many aspects are still the same. People can be just as nice no matter where you are, and that is important to remember. Yet there are still differences in the world, and that is a good thing to remember too. With out differences going to the supermarket would be the same as going to an amusement park. It is fun to travel and see the subtleties of the world.

#82 Two Birds

B: You know how people say two birds with one stone? B: Well I don't think people should throw stones at even one bird. I really like the boy's point. I don't think it's nice to throw stones at birds... even if it's only one bird.

#81 No Man (part2 of 2)

B: Can you believe that the school doesn't have a ready supply of cone hats, and I get in trouble because of it?! B: I bet dumb ol' homer didn't have to make his own dunce cap. D: maybe that no-man excuse only works on giant cyclpses... Homer was a pretty smart ol' guy. I always wanted to be put in a situation where I could use the trick Odysseus used on that silly Polyphemus. I've never had the chance too though. In case you are a bit rusty on your Classics, below you will find some suggested reading. Books are lots of fun. Some might even say that they're "dumptrucks of knowledge[see comic 80]." This summer I'm reading the Count of Monte Cristo. What books are you reading this summer?
Bartelby's online Odyssey - the story of Polyphemus
A brief look at Polyphemus
Some other good books

#80 No Man (part 1 of 2)

No Man wrote those answers! Perhaps you haven't read this book. Or it may be that it's too obscure. but I think (as does the boy) that any trick used in myth should work in real life too.

#79 Moderation

B: If everything is in moderation... B: wouldn't that be rather extreme? Going to extremities is often a bad idea. Moderation is usually a good way to go, but I guess if you have moderation in everything that is also fairly extreme. That would make moderation also a bad idea... Things are extremely confusing aren't they?!
