Re: 1190: "Time"

Some analysis, I really think the dream about the rope was about the What-If at the time. It never happened later on in the comic as a precognitive dream. Anyone else has thoughts about that? And we never fully understood Beanish. Probably it wasn't the intention, just the make the (solved) puzzle o...

Re: Awake already?

So after the day, week, and month they've had, Cuegan are the first ones awake?!? I can only assume that they are not fully human, but are in fact (Niven) Protectors. That would explain their endurance. It would also explain why there's nothing romantic going on (sigh). It would raise the question ...

Instant zoom. LaPetite is leading the 40-bunch, I presume. Then we have CircleHead, GenericHairDude, AnotherWoman, Little Pete and GenericHatGuy.

So Cueball lived in that area for his whole life. Interesting information.

And he was coming out to the rock, which decreases the likelihood of Cuegan being a couple. ;)
