  3. xhunterko

    Here chicken chicken chicken.

    • xhunterko

      Here’s a quick challenge for you. Raise your hand if you read the comic then posted. Come on, raise those hands!…Or paws.

      • dalonewolf25

        *raises paws and acts like a chicken*

        • Alex M.

          Noooo! You win me T^T

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            *raises paw and looks suspiciously around*

          • Frank

            I think you mean “you beat me”. “You win me” literally means that you are one of the prizes.

          • dalonewolf25

            Hmm…I win an Alex M… What do I do with him now?

          • Skykitsune

            *Raises paw*
            Do you really want an answer dalonewolf25?

          • dalonewolf25

            Yes, yes I do, however, you seem to have given me one already.

          • Alex M.

            D:
            I’m a prize, that feel weird…..
            And what i wanted to type was:
            Me has ganado!
            So, You beat me i’ts the correct.

      • Naylorfan90

        *raises paw* I did! =D

      • Silver Dragon

        But… what if you don’t have either?

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          oh well ^-^

        • Atheren

          Raise a wing?

        • dalonewolf25

          …or a tail?

    • Lance

      told you. hehe.

      • xhunterko

        So, you didn’t read the comic just to get first post? What’s the point of the comic then?

        • Skykitsune

          To be ignored while people post insanely? I thought that was the point of ALL comics! Hehe…

    • Hypergenesis
      • Frank

        But… we got ourselves a live one!

        • Hypergenesis

          It’s just playing possum. . .

          Cook it quick!

          Though fresh wild chicken is said to be very tasty as well. . .

          • HonorèDerazey

            Wild chicken is kinda gamey. Free Range Chicken is good.

            PS: I would like Jen Grant’s comedy segment about free range chicken but she says some inappropriate stuff. Oh well.

    I smell Halloween special! It smells like pumpkins, for some reason.

    • Hypergenesis

      Pumpkins? No, that’s children. . .

      Children who soiled there undies after seeing the words “sugar-free”.

    CHICKEN!!!

  7. dalonewolf25

    Hey, isn’t that the house they burnt down last year or so?

    • Hypergenesis

      Nah, that house has an extension that this one doesn’t.

      Also, no chimney on the Easter house.

      • dalonewolf25

        Actually, it does have a chimney!
        http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/04/13/any-year-with-no-fatalities-is-a-good-year/
        Well, maybe the extension is on the other side, no?

        • Hypergenesis

          Derp, it does, though way lower than this one’s.

          If the extension is on the other side then it’s not the same house due to the chimney’s position.

          If the extension is on the right place then we should be seeing the larger extension building from that angle.

          • dalonewolf25

            …unless what we’re seeing in this comic is the backyard view. Also, the extension could have a corner cut like most houses have their garages cut from the front side.

          • Hypergenesis

            Valid point but that would also make the chimney smaller than the one from Easter. (It’s about three times thinner)

            Also it was burnt in Easter so it should have at least char marks.

            From just the damage, it couldn’t be the same house.

            From the looks of it though, it couldn’t have been abandoned for more than a few months as there aren’t any plants growing on the walls. (That’s wood and it’s very susceptible to moss and lichen which would encourage vine growth)

            Also if it was recently repaired, the wood panels wouldn’t have deformed as much yet, that’ usually from long term disuse.

            The grass also claims that it would have just been a few month before it was abandoned. (it’s not high enough to warrant the year of abandonment)

            In conclusion, the house has been standing there for years already and is just recently abandoned. Therefore it can’t be the house from last Easter.

          • dalonewolf25

            But remember, it’s a haunted house, so maybe it rebuilt itself in a better looking way from when it was in Easter, making the surrounding territory also up to par.

          • Hypergenesis

            Sure hope not to offend anyone, but this is the only thing in my mind right now after reading your comment. . .

  8. 2MK

    Finally. An anthro character that dosen’t have fur this time.

    • dalonewolf25

      Hey! At least I have feathers!

      • Alex M.

        A chicken talking to a tail.
        …..
        *Laughs*
        Inside joke :P

    • Flammie

      Tarot kinda played an anthro bird in Imaginate, Too!

      http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/03/24/for-the-birds/

    • Hypergenesis

      Also, humans ARE anthros. (LoL)

      Also, does the Spirit Dragon not count?

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        ur tecnicleh raight cuz hoomas r aminals ^.^

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Anthro is short for “Anthropomorphic”, which roughly translates to “human-like” or “human-esque”.

          • Leinad

            and a human being it “like a human”, no?

          • Leinad

            *is like a human.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      That demolishes any theories about only mammals being sapient (Spirit Dragon is extradimensional and Jeijan is a character from a book).

      • Foxstar

        Max and Grape were tormenting a bird earlier this year that spoke just fine.
        And in the first year strips, the birds at the zoo didn’t want Grape anywhere near their enclosure.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Oh, yeh, and the snake…

        • HonorèDerazey

          Oh yeah… the birds that threatened to unionize… you know, that stripe kinda confused me because Rick said he bases the setting of Housepets(!) on where is lives, which is Alabama I think. I don’t recall unions doing so well in the south. Just sayin’. =/

    • Hypergenesis

      and let’s not forget slushy the overpriced slush drink.

      Don’t hurt me, I’m a sitting duck. . .

      *looks to the duck beside me* Don’t start.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I am the terror that flaps in the night.
        I am the typo in your carefully worded spelling flame.
        I am… Darkwing Duck!

        • dalonewolf25

          *puts flame on the duck*
          Mmm…Foie Gras! Extra dark, too!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            *escapes behind his patented blue smoke*

            *cough, cough*

          • dalonewolf25

            *ducky didn’t realize he was on patented blue flame*

          • Argent Stonecutter
          • dalonewolf25

            …you’re still going to burn in blue flames.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Don’t be silly. Cartoon characters just turn black, cough out a discreet little cloud of smoke, shake themselves off (releasing a cloud of soot and dust a-la Pig Pen), and leap back into action.

          • dalonewolf25

            According to the laws of cartoon physics, specifically Amendment “C,” you’re right. However, he is a vigilante, so he has to break laws in order to be someone. Therefore, he doesn’t turn black and smokey. Instead, he turns into a delicious foie gras. Mmmm… E|:3
            http://funnies.paco.to/cartoon.html

          • dalonewolf25

            Noo! Gravatar failed me!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Cartoon Law VII can be restated: pictures (photographs, paintings, etcetera) are real if the character interacting with them believes they are real. So, for example, the Road Runner can run down a tunnel the Coyote has painted on a wall, but the Coyote knows it’s fake and can’t follow.

            As with all cartoon laws, the rule of funny prevails.

          • dalonewolf25

            Ah, but if he believes himself to be a hero (which he knows he’s not), then he will die in blue flames, for he knows he’s not…UNLESS he was hypnotized to be a hero. E|:D

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Darkwing Duck’s enormous ego won’t allow him to doubt.

          • Alex M.

            Reality is relative to your sense of what is real and not.

          • dalonewolf25

            Reality is something you cannot make disappear. However, you can make dreams disappear.
            @Argent
            …but what happens if I make ducky die in blue flames and make it a reality? Wouldn’t there be a contrast in the powers?

          • dalonewolf25

            D’oh! I just contradicted myself. E|:P
            Ducky, however, will die in blue flames. It’s Amendment Z.

          • Alex M.

            But if your dreams are your reality.
            You are disappearing what you think it’s real.
            Then you not exist and nothing more would exist and the dimensions will collapse and everithing will start again.

          • Alex M.

            ehem….

  9. IceKitsune

    lol at “Don’t Start” this arc looks like its going to be funny

    • Hypergenesis

      Well, it’s always been either amazing or funny or both.

  10. Pseudo Faux

    So….. the chicken gonna be joining them this evening as well?

    • Hypergenesis

      It’ll probably run away soon as it sets into its mind that Maxwell is a cat.

      Come to think of it. . .
      “Don’t start. . . running away.”

      • Flammie

        Lecturing could be a pretty good deterrent, though.

  11. Darcin

    You are quite positive there has never been a chicken in your neighborhood, and never will be. Frankly, the notion strikes you as reckless and foolhardy.

      lol oh god that was just great.

    • GameCobra

      Yes. you do indeed get the best comment, sir.

    • xhunterko

      Okay, it’ obviously a reference to something somewhere. Someone bring me up to speed please.

      • Darcin

        http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=4 <= Start here.

        Technically, you could find the joke in Jail Break, but it's so bad when compared to Problem Sleuth.

        • Kamron

          I suggest people read Jail Break and other MSPA strips as well, just so they also get the in-jokes. But, yeah, read Homestuck first, then the other comics, then read Homestuck again.

      • IceKitsune

        Its a reference to a web comic called MSPA It reads like an old Adventure game. In the comic some times random items would appear or the character would have them but when they went to pick them up or use them they wouldn’t be there (or would be a different item altogether) and it would say something along the lines of what the Darcin posted. You should go read it its a great comic.

        • Gaboris

          Agreed there with Ice. So go on Hunter and take your time, it’s a looong one, but worths every second of it. X)

          • xhunterko

            I won’t be reading that for a while at least. Comics that make me lose time are almost never a good thing for me.

          • dalonewolf25

            oh, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!
            -a cookie for whoever gets this reference-

          • gaboris

            Oh dang it, I’m not getting a cookie. :’(
            Where is this from anyway? :3

          • dalonewolf25

            No cookie for you:

            However, I can give you pie! E|:3

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Is it bad that I found these “ho ho, very droll” for about ten or so scenes, but I was never exactly ROFL and I gave up soon after that.

      • dalonewolf25

        Because pretty much it involved stupidity and single option gameplay and unknown paradoxes, almost making it seem like you’re playing Silent Hill 4: The Room.

        • Hypergenesis

          MSPA? I think I gave up the same time Argent did.

          @dalonewolf25, I completely agree with you there. At first I though it was really some interactive comic, but by a few scenes I realized I was simply clicking “next page”. It lost all its appeal to me by then and I was no sooner back on Google looking for another kill time (I was looking for games, like dracula’s riddle. . .).

          Maybe it would have gotten better later, but that I would never know. . .

          Adding to the list of linear games… Final Fantasy 13!

    • HonorèDerazey
  12. Pokeblue

    Hm…a haunted mansion. I like. ^w^

    Lol, random chicken. XD

    • Frank

      No, no. Abandonded mansion. Nobody’s said anything about it being haunted!

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        have u evah noticed that there seems to be ah haunted mansion in every naberhood :?

        • Frank

          My neighborhood only has a haunted empty lot overgrown with weeds. Guess they never got around to building it.

          • dalonewolf25

            My house used to be the neighborhood’s abandoned house…Now it’s happy after we cleaned it.

  13. Alex M.

    Pumpkin-Waiting Game
    …….
    So what are you suppose to do?

    • xhunterko

      Someone obviously hasn’t seen ‘It’s the great pumpkin charlie brown’.

      • BlueAnubis

        Poor kid. Waiting all those years, and only ever seeing a zamboni at the most.

      • Alex M.

        You said it,i haven’t seen It’s the great pumpkin, only Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (and don’t Come Back!) and Snoopy, Come Home.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I can’t recall if I’ve ever watched a Peanuts movie all the way through.

          The strips were better.

        • Frank

          What about A Charlie Brown Christmas?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I have no idea, probably, that one came out when I was a kid.

            Vince Guaraldi was a jazz god, though. The music was awesome.

  14. Ryufire

    I’m in the mood for some tasty pumpkin pie and chicken pot pie :)

    • Hypergenesis

      Isn’t Halloween the time for chocolate, confectionery and caramel all day long?

      Oh, today? Sorry, enjoy your meal then.

  15. PrivateElliot

    I see 3 or 4 gravatars coming from this.

    • dalonewolf25

      there’s 2

    • Tha Housedog

      Funny, that’s what I thought, too…

  16. Hypergenesis

    Isn’t that “the Flamingo?”

  17. PrivateElliot

    Hey, Rick changed the Alt Text, even though i can’t remember what it was before.

    • Alex M.

      I remember now,It was about the mannor, something about he not use it on last year Halloween arc.

  18. Valerio

    THE HAUNTED MANSION!!
    Coincidence or not, I feel touched.
    And max is totally awesome on panel 3!!!

    • Ryufire

      Back when Umbrella corp was around they owned that mansion. Gods only knows what went on down there 0.o

      • lightwolf21

        Not quite the coincidence Valerio is talking about, but a valid point nonetheless.

        • Ryufire

          Yeah I know, every time I see a mansion that RE scenario just pops up in my head lol!

      • Silver Dragon

        I was waiting for someone to go there. Well, I’ll have Wesker say hello to my fully upgraded Linear Launcher. Might not kill him, but it’s a great way to start a conversation.

    • PrivateElliot

      Hey, Where’d you get that Val?

  19. Hypergenesis

    The manor’s design seems kind of strange. . .

    Why would there be a door to nothingness there? (Second floor, above main entrance) or has the terrace fallen into ruin from abandonment? (Still there should have been a trace of it in that case.)

    • xhunterko

      No, see, that’s where the balcony was. It’s also where Tartot practiced take offs and landings. Balcony’s can only hold a dragon so many times…

      • Silver Dragon

        Well, it varies from dragon to dragon but generally… heh, yeah that’s pretty much true.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      It almost looks like the second floor is the same design as the first floor. Architects mixing up their blueprints, perhaps? There’s a reason nobody’s bought it.

    • Alex M.

      Maybe on the second floor was a wall that collapsed, or it was a window broken time ago.

    • Thoth

      The roof comes out there, but the boards of the wall seem to continue straight across behind a post while the underside roof over the door appears black. It looks like the porch outside of the main entrance is covered by a open balcony which has it’s own roof. It’s impossible to be entirely certain, but that would also fit the angles of the doors; if they were facing out of the side of the projecting section to the right, they wouldn’t be rectangular.

      • Hypergenesis

        That’s what I also see, but isn’t it a wee bit small to be of any use?

        Unless it was designed so that the homeowner would have a very easy time when hanging seasonal ornaments over the front door.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Haunted manor? Alien geometries? I think they have a shoggoth on the roof!

  20. copper

    gotta love the chicken dance. I cant wait for the halloween party, or whatever it is going to be. Maybe some romantic moments coming up?

    • xhunterko

      Can’t Rick say ‘I can have fun too!’? Does it always HAVE to be about romance?
      coughcough

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        dat… woo… beh awesome O.O

    • Hypergenesis

      From being scared? That’s quite cliched already. I trust Rick has something better in mind.

  21. lightwolf21

    Is the alt-text a Foghorn Leghorn reference?

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      “Ah say, Ah day Ah re-ZEMBLE that remark!”

    • root

      Foghorn does not have a single ounce of patience to spare for this kind of tomfoolery.

    • Firewolf

      “Boys as sharp as a bowling ball.” – Foghorn Leghorn.

      (Jk Jk =D Yes it is)

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Ah do, ah say, ah do believe you are right!

  22. GameCobra

    can’t quite recall, but i’m either reminded of the old fashion scooby Doo intro or A Charlie Brown special when i see that mansion.

    Also, if it’s only cats involved, i bet Grape will be the champion.

  23. Corodan

    Oh boy, Rick’s giving himself an excuse to draw the pets scared collar-less.

    I whole-heartedly endorse this idea.

    That’s all there is to really say on the matter. Otherwise, I like this chicken, and I respect him for trying to stick out for himself. Y’know, before he’s sticking out of someone’s KFC bucket.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      That made me picture Grape, Max, and Marvin scared stiff, at an angle, with the collars above their heads.
      Gotta love Scooby Doo.

  24. lightwolf21

    I believe Leeroy Jenkins said it best…

  25. tyrax10

    haha this is the best ever my fav

  26. Oleo

    Where did the chicken come from?

    He was CROSSING THE ROAD!

  27. Doomwolf

    Johnny: “cheap cheap cheap cheap cheap!”

  28. Loki Impisi

    I love Max’s troll face in the first panel.

  29. AmericanOtter

    Wow, just wow.

    *Laughs a little*

    This sounds like fun…. and will the entire nieghborhood be on the journey?

    I know I would love to explore something like that…. no, scratch that. I want to buy that house!

  30. Thegamist

    Boook bok bok bok
    Max you’re mean

  31. Lance

    the alt text was changed! why?

    • dalonewolf25

      He thought of something better at the time.

    • Firewolf

      Because Foghorn Leghorn is awesome!

      “Did ya see that hawk after those hens? He scared ‘em! That Rhode Island Red turned white, then blue. Rhode Island, red white and blue! That’s a joke, son, a flag-waver! You’re built too low. The fast ones go over your head. Ya got a hole in your glove. I keep pitchin’ ‘em and you keep missin’ ‘em! Ya gotta keep your eye on the ball! Eye. Ball. Eyeball! I almost had a gag, son–a joke, that is!” – Foghorn Leghorn.

  32. Firewolf

    HAHAHA!!! Foghorn Leghorn! =D Nice reference.

  33. FurryNerd

    I think Rick has capture the “chicken dance” pose very well. Well Done! :D

    • Firewolf

      Indeed. Most accurate.

  34. Fuzzypaws

    Max is awesome. Cute jerks can be fun. *giggles* And he can even do the chicken dance!

  35. Hypergenesis

    Checked back on last year’s Halloween and I noticed Max was with Grape (while Peanut was with Tarot on a flying broom) does that mean pumpkin-waiting is done in the earlier hours?

  36. Lance

    i just watched foghorn leghorn rant, and now I see the joke. awesome. XD

    • Gaboris

      Where can I find that? I only got the chicken thing not good old Foghorn Leghorn. Haven’t seen him in years so I don’ get the reference. XD

  37. Alex M.

    Marvin don’t have whiskers on his left side of his face….

    • Firewolf

        Don’ know really, Max doesn’t have them on his right side and he stands in a different pose. But the wierd part is that he looses those as well on the last panel… wiskers are just wierd to be drawn I’d say. :p

    Hehe, first time I can remember seeing a chicken here(living one at least :p). Looks wierd compared to the other pets, but don’ know why. :D
    So scary manor with wannabe ghosts inside I bet… cool, can’t wait. X3

  40. Greek Geek

    Max’s facial expressions FTW.

    I get a feeling that the chicken will one= kick butt, and two= be the one (accidentally or intentionally) to scare everyone in that house. Follow up with witty comment on who the chicken is now.

    Why does a chicken cross the road? To get on the other side?
    Why does an invisible chicken cross the road? *splat!*
    Why does a HP chicken cross the road? To lecture Max.

    • Rocket Knight boy

      why does a British chicken cross the road? to see his FLAT mate
      DOOH HO HO HO

      • Valerio

        good one, sir! ;)

    • Ada

      I imagine he crossed a lot of roads. I’ve only seen the one farm in HP.

      • Hypergenesis

        How about a feral chicken?

        There’s a nearby forest.

        • Ada

          Feral chickens?! I don’t need to listen to this preposterous nonsense! We all know that chickens only reside on farms and were invented by Benjamin Franklin.

        • Valerio

          and suddenly images of ‘Chicken’ MTG cards pop into mind…

    This reminds me of the ed edd and eddy episode where they all went in the mansion. And every-other show that did that. I hope everyone goes and forms groups and stuff that’ll be fun.

  47. Rocket Knight boy

    always good to see marvin in a comic, he always seems calm so this arc should be interesting!

    • Hypergenesis

      Canine Equivalent = Fox.

      • Flammie

        Indeed. Though it seems like Fox is irritated more frequently. But I guess that shouldn’t be surprising considering some of the cast of dogs.

        Marvin also lives in the company of Tiger, so I guess that helps.

        • Hypergenesis

          You have to note that Fox appears more frequently than Marvin as well that Fox had been into more irritating situations than Marvin. If you average the appearances to irritations (which I have not yet done) I think it should even out pretty well. . . Give or take Bino apprearances.

          • Flammie

            Hmm, fair point. It’s not easy to stay calm if you’ve hung out in the constant company of Bino, punctuated by the kidnapping. Plus, yeah, Fox appears more frequently than Marvin.

            Scanning through the archives doesn’t remind you of that.

  48. Mika

    I cant believe no one has asked this yet…

    WHICH CAME FIRST…THE CHICKEN OR THE EGG!?!

    • Hypergenesis

      I can’t believe there are still those asking this question. . .

      Whether Creation theory or Evolution theory, the chicken always comes first. . .

      And any other theory would say that the chicken comes first except for the theory of fastfood evolution which states.

      “And the heat that radiated from a meteor that was crashing to Earth hatched the egg and the first chick(en) was born. After that since there were no more meteors crashing to earth, the chickens lost their heat immunity and became fried chicken.”

      • Argent Stonecutter

            I’m glad to have expanded your horizons then :)

          • dalonewolf25

            The big bang came first! We all know that…do we?

          • Hypergenesis

            Maybe we should just go with the Chaos Theory where the most balanced entity is nothingness (which is the product of combining matter with anti-matter). Since entropy had always been present and is steadily increasing every moment, the reaction of entropy and nothing causes nothing to split into matter and anti-matter. Since the two matters cannot exist at the same place, they diverge into dimensions and it further splits into smaller and smaller matter / anti-matter and thus creates the multiverse we know today. So that I can be culturally sensitive, the formation of the particles created a Big-bang like phenomenon where the proximity of the nothing to the entropy caused a huge burst of matter and anti-matter. The natural balance of matter called for balance between the particles and this is what we came to know as “God” from the creations of “God” the basic lifeforms evolved with the help of “God” to create the world we know today. Our ability to create worlds in our minds prove the existence of “God: while further establishes ourselves as generators of entropy as we had just created something out of nothing.

            More on this when I go to work and upon the discovery of an interested audience.

          • Hypergenesis

            I must be hallucinating or something, or did I just hear (read) you say (type) “Kentucky trombone Casanova perforated linoleum.” If you did said (typed) so, I would like to ask (by typing) “wot?” (A line you own.)

          • Alex M.

            How something infinite like the universe, keep growing and growing, because infinite have no limit of size.
            So the universe keep growing bigger than the infinite.
            Strange universe we live on, or i must say dimension?

          • Hypergenesis

            The only reason the universe appears black because there is no end to it. With no end, there would be nothing for light to reflect on and thus creates the black background of the universe. It is safe to assume it is infinitely growing due to this because if it did stop growing or if it was created with a finite size, then there should have been reflections that would have lit up the universe with a form of light.

            Technically it is possible to assume that the universe (dimension) we live in is goes infinitely back in age because theoretically, if we build more powerful space telescopes we can see further and further into space never reaching the end of the universe thus creating an infinite number of light years in distance. Factoring all that we get that the universe is infinite in age.

            Question is, could we still say something of infinite age is growing as growth is change in relation to time. If we try to put that into number then what we’ll get is infinity over infinity which would be undefined.

            Therefore, it could be concluded that it is pointless to assume when the beginning of time is because time is cyclical which implies that there is no start or end, only events that make it seem like it was.

            So to answer your question, yes the universe (dimension) we live in is strange.

            But do you believe it is even stranger how we (those of short lives) were able to exist within this infinite universe?
            (Rhetorical Question, please don’t answer.)

            On a side note, once something becomes “infinite”, it cannot grow anymore as infinity (+, – , *, /) anything = infinity. Therefore infinite anythings cannot grow / expand / multiply / populate / etc. anymore because it already is.

          • Alex M.

            Great explanation!
            The Universe and Human Mind, are my favorite mysteries of this life.
            Because both are infinite in questions and answers.
            And we have the infinite time source to find all the answers we want.

          • dalonewolf25

            *Grammar time! Don’t overuse commas, and don’t start a dependent clause and end it as so. If you are going to have a dependent clause, make sure that you have at least one independent clause preceding or succeeding it.

            The universe is something that’s there, we believe it to be there, but is it really still there? (Schrödinger’s Cat) For all we know, we may have fallen into a black hole, which, in itself, created its own universe hence our existence and the ever-growing expansion of our universe. Who knows? Knowledge is a virtue, now go find it! E|:D

          • Hypergenesis

            Surprising thing about black holes: It’s white inside.

            Why?

            Due to the the extreme gravitational pull of a black hole, even light particles/waves fail to escape the pull of the gravitational field and therefore it permanently lies in an equilibrium at the point where the gravitational pull is equal to its energy. However, not all light particles are trapped in this state as only those that are escaping in line with the core are trapped in this stasis.

            This has led to the theory that a black hole (entry only) will always connect to a white hole (exit only). This coincides with the “high and low points” of the universeS where the black hole (high point) is always connected to a white hole (low point) [Higher goes to lower due to gravity].

            Of course, black holes are observed to be growing as they age and this throws the theory of white holes away, along with the possibility of transdimensional travel via wormholes.

            Also, technically the universe is something that we are in so we can be always sure that as long as we exist there is a companion universe for us. (Yes, you are never alone.)

            I don’t pride myself in English, though what we are talking in would most likely be American, I believe the internet is a free place where these laws aren’t so strict – except for those who wish to enforce it – but since we should be (or at least encouraged to) speaking in English. . . I think I’ll just shut up.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Hype… old bean old buddy old rutabaga… that’s the most messed up explanation of Olbers paradox I’ve ever read.

            And if you think infinity is big, you need to read Godel Escher Bach, it’ll really bake your noodle.

            (noodles and rutabagas, now that’s funny)

          • Hypergenesis

            So all I can say is never heard and never heard. Googled it though.

            Olber’s Paradox, hmm, I would say he would either make a point or none at all, maybe that’s why it’s called a paradox.
            But think of it as being buried in an infinity ball pit except the balls can magically float and move in mid air and are also respecting of other balls’ space, no matter what you do there will always be a time where there would be light coming from an infinitely distant light source. So taking the light as darkness (idiotic, I know.), you could say that the darkness is there because there are times when their spaces between the stars permit light to pass through.

            Just to add another stake in Olber’s coffin, not all distant celestial bodies are stars, some are rocks, some are planets, some are even black holes. These are bodies that doesn’t emit light and therefore contribute to the darkness of space by either blocking, redirecting or absorbing the light.

            Before I have to go to prepare noodles due to your temptation, where can I read Godel Escher Bach?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            It’s a book. A big fat book. All about tortoises, all the way across the sky. No, that’s a lie, though the tortoise is important, and the crab, and of course Achilles.

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%B6del,_Escher,_Bach

          • dalonewolf25

            A loop-de-loop book of paradoxes, hmm…should I read this? Also @Hypergenesis: I agree. We should not be forced to speak english. However, to be able to appreciate what the other says, we speak it so. Plus, the internet is mainly in english. Therefore, we type it. By the way, I was just correcting Alex, that’s all; he’s learning english.

          • Hypergenesis

            I realized that, it’s been going on since the last strip.

            Not about the teaching him English part though.

            So. . . I fail, derp.

          • Alex M.

            Not learning.
            I’m putting my knowledge into action, sometimes wrong and other good. And what better place to practice?
            Here! And about the internet.
            “The English it’s a very old language and very extended across the world, so if i wanted to people from all the world understand one to others, i’ll teach them the English”. (That’s a quote from the movie River World, recently watched on Sci-Fi)
            And sometimes may get wrong on the past tense, but i have dalonewolf here to correct me.
            Thanks for all the help dalone, hope in the future have fewer errors. :D

          • dalonewolf25

            No problem. Ready for another list of grammatical errors?
            Can’t say if the quote is written exactly by what he said, unless the guy is speaking with a foreign accent, for there are a couple of errors in grammar.

            How much does A.C.R.O.N.Y.M. pay sidekicks these days?

          • Frank

            The Association for Cross-Recognition Of Needlessly Yapping Musings pays Ludicrously Indirect Totals That are Less than Everything

          • dalonewolf25

            The ACRONYM pays LITTLE for those with Little Energetic Unavailable Kinematic Energy Migration Inside Arteries.

          • Hypergenesis

            That’s the Association for Cross-Recognition of Needlessly Yapping Mustelids
