Re: 1190: "Time"

General question to everyone: What is the OTT accomplishment that you are most proud of? None. :oops: I am still amazed to have been lurking daily since day one on something so wonderfully unrelated to real (heresy!) life... My OTT Award nominations: Best OTT science: the starry night analysis. Clo...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I believe this wonderful comic is designed as a loop. It should go back to the beginning today, probably at midnight.
