I hate to do this, but it’s “zoetrope”, not “zoatrope” (panel 3).

I think both are used depending on where you are from.

My friend was going to get into a fight. He knew this was going to happen. After a long and elaborate explanation on how he was going to win this rambuncitous mid-teen fisticuffs, he explained: “If you kick a person in the left, he falls to the right.”

I couldn’t argue that.

he’s got science on his side. his left side.
This plan is like the product of a torrid affair between Georges Melies and a squirrel.

Wait! What are we gonna watch in the fall? And what about Anime? Will there be subtitles, like in the roots or something?!?

Logic would only dictate that, yes, there would be root subtitles. Duh.

Need more leaves to encode the sound. You could hear it in space if you have the proper optical receiver, oh and some air of course.

While this is a very dumb idea I can’t help but have a deep appreciation for the elaborate and almost childlike logic behind it. How did you even think of this?

not to be crass but I thought of it while using the bathroom… which is where i get nearly 100% of my ideas.

My friends are always good at spotting overly-complicated plans. I never need to convince them that a plan is overly-complicated.
The problem is, it’s really hard to convince them that overly-complicated plans are either good or bad ideas.

My friends are too smart to avoid or turn down my overly-complicated plans. And you know, you don’t have to convince them, theyll just know it.

Are you kidding? I was the tools expert for a documentation department at IBM for ten years. ALL I DID was explain why stupid and overly complicated plans wouldn’t work.
