Digital Strips 177 – Zuda Watch Nov 09

OK boys and girls. A few of you may remember way back in our last show I said that I would disappear for a while because of my wife having a baby. I said this way back then because it was a week before the due date and people had told us stories about babies coming way before their parents were ready. In truth though, the due date is nothing more than an arbitrary point in time, some where in the middle of a month where you just walk around the house with a catcher’s mitt.

Not wanting to leave you guys completely showless Jason went ahead and planed a Zuda Watch for this month. Right before we were about to record though, I had to get ready to go to the hosipital because babies hate the Internet. Fortunately Mr. David Gallaher was willing to join in and save everyone from having to hear Jason talk to himself for an hour.

So tune in and take a frightening look at a world with out Steve “The Geek” Shinney.

Here’s a spoiler: It’s still a pretty goo world what with all the comics.

Sorry no show notes this time. They dropped a lot of names of creators that I didn’t recognize because I’m not that smart.

  1. I got Little Earth People right away. In fact one of my biggest complaints was he spent too much time explaining the apparatus, but maybe I’m overestimating the general audience.

    There is a function in the brain that tells you where your body is in relation to everything else. If you put down your soda and then work on the computer, and then reach for your soda and pick it up without looking at it, that’s that function of the brain. It recalls where you are in relation to your soda.

    When people have near-death experiences and they feel like they’re leaving their body and moving away from it, that is that function of the brain failing. Or (something you’re probably more familiar with) the bed spins. When you get really drunk and lay down your brain is flailing, trying to figure exactly where in the room you are and it overcompensates in one direction, then the other. So it doesn’t just look like you’re spinning, it FEELS like you’re spinning.

    So, his Parietal Lobe is all messed up, and the only way he can legitimately judge where he is in the environment is to see an image of himself within that environment. Which, I imagine, would be super difficult to navigate. It’d be like trying to play Wii in a mirror.

  2. See, this is what I love about good science fiction. It makes you learn things. Thanks for the info Nate!
