Hogdarnit, that'll teach me to have a life and attempt to run some dialog in this bish..

I'll be honest about it, next week will be late as well. But i'll try not to leave you all hanging as long as this week.

@ Mr.Chameleon (previous page): You talk about your music like i talk about my comic. ;-p

Anyhoodies: It's CLH nr 78, where Steward shares his breakfast with the grass and Mieke promises to keep us entertained.
I know, i'm sacred to..
Enjoy folks and see you ASAP!

PS:For those not used to the metric system,
6 liters of water would weigh approximately 13.2 pounds.

she's a demon.. still brings back "fond" memories of my own time in boot camp >.>

No worries if you're late.. I thought I was myself.. until I got here and no-one's here?! sfx: tumbleweed rolling across bleak site...

13.2 pounds/6 litres? Meh, that's nothing.. by the time I finished boot camp, we had all of our equipment on day-long marches.. and the stuff weighed around 50 pounds. =.=;;
Mr. McCleanhands : August 13th, 2009, 4:28 am : O_O
Oh well, at least he isn't marching with a backpack full of spraycans. *g*
Have fun with the boxes. (and your sis)
Keep up the good works!!!
Mr. Chameleon : August 13th, 2009, 5:21 pm :
@ X4I: yeah well.. I made a few screw ups.
Better luck next time!

Mieke is pretty easy on her prey.
The hunted becomes the hunter. hehe

@ BlackCatz: Hehe, that tumbleweed may be due to the SJ being off line just after the update. I'm guessing Admin's changed servers again..

As for the 13.2 pounds, yeah, that's easy going. Hell, my M90 boots weigh 5 pounds without socks in 'em..
Then again, like Mieke says, they're starting of easy.
And yeah, the amount of gear/weight one is expected to carry in the field is insane.
(the reason i got turned down for service was the fact my body couldn't support the weight of a full kit without lasting injury. Wtf?!)

@ Mr.McCleanhands: The boxes where great, and they said to say hi.
I'm pretty sure water will out weight some aerosol of the same volume.

@ Mr.Chameleon: Yeah, i rest my case..
And yep, Mieke's being nice..
..for now.

Never actually posted before, but whatever. Love the comic, blah blah blah, etc. etc. etc.
Anyways, as I'm a grammar Nazi, you forgot an "f" in 'off' in the last panel. Don't worry, I still love the comic. Spelling has always been one of my pet peeves.
BlackCatz : August 17th, 2009, 12:00 am :
Yeah, I know what you mean about the weight of the boots...insane...and that's before they start getting weighted down with mud and stuff ^^;

Really, you got turned down? My bro and I didn't, and I totally thought I would be, but guess not >.>
X4I : August 17th, 2009, 2:03 am :
@ Junkle: Cheers for the heads up, i'll see to that peev as soon as the next comic is finally up and running.
(which might be a while.. sorry folks.)

@ BlackCatz: Yeah, love those boots though. The only shoes i can walk on for a whole day without fracking up an ankle. My tendons and ligaments are too long all over the place.
That's why they turned me down: They where afraid i might dislocate my hip joints if i went on a march with full gear.
I'd just be a nuisance, if not a liability, to take into the field because of that.
So yeah, physically unfit. (-_-;

we will await in silence
