I just love the idea of "Wait for it..... wait for ittttt.... AHHH back at the beginning, fuckers!!"
Little sadistic, I know.
That would be the perfect definition of trolling.

I'm not convinced they've seen the damage yet. They'll get round to it. It'd be frustrating if the turret had collapsed in one scene, and the next frame had been a 'wasted' frame while the damage was repaired. This way, our half hour wait wasn't for something entirely predictable.
Why would it be "wasted"? It would fit into the flow of the story. Remember? They spent few (2? 3?) strips admiring the first little tower they build. You should not expect, at this point, any sudden change or increased pace of the story.
Also: now I think they won't be repairing it at all. I do think they have noticed it and I think they won't notice it to the very end.

Nice concept, but impossible to realize if it were to be repeated infinitely long.

I don't know. I kind of like the idea that this comic will end in one static frame while the whole story resides in the memories of those who have followed it from the very beginning... and of course those who would read this thread.

Assuming there's a pit behind what's shown, I do know how hard it is to dig a hole in sand. water somehow always seems to be able to find a path into the pit, and if you try to get the water and sand out, it just causes the sand to slide back in. Seeing this huge block of sand, there MUST be some kind of pit hidden from view, and... it must be beginning to get water in it by now, and so that structure... shouldn't be as sturdy as it is... This makes me wonder if it's even sand at all, or, at least, if that block is sand.
I don't think the water from the lake (ha!) can come up there to flood the holes they've made in sand. Though I must agree I think it would be hard to make a solid block of sand shaped as a square...

Sorry, they wouldn't be lying on it and wouldn't be checking the temperature of water.
