Oh god everybody's calling them The Cosmic Nerds now aren't they? (Yay! I started something) Ok on to the time line it self. In the original Cast page it said that Peanut was not yet five now that means the oldest he can be is four years old in 2008 your time line is off by a year Peanut should have been born in 2004 and Grape in 2005. Other then that I see no real problems but it is 3 am here so I'll look it over in the morning to make sure.

Edit: Two things as with the birth years your stuff for Grape's Past should be moved down to be Circa 2006-2007. And also on February 14th of 2010 you should mention that Sasha got gifts from every dog in the neighborhood. Also if you want any help with this just ask I'm good with these kind of things. (I've done it for a few other series before :ugeek: )

Edit2: Also Pete wasn't really "imprisoned" because the temples are more of a start point then anything.

I think he knows, but it was too painful for him to write it out.

Perhaps 'like this' means fanboyish to the extreme of making a timeline? *giggles* Is one possible explanation!

i never had any doubt you were 'like this'

besides that would be a misrepresentation of sinder; he still made me laugh somewhere in there.

Giant Snowstorm? Tell me about it.

Do we have a set location of where Babylon Gardens is? I've put it in Connecticut.

There are no in-strip indications as to where Babylon Gardens is located. Rick said that the Sandwich house was based upon his home in North Carolina, but wasn't entirely fitting to the setting he wanted (because he lived "in the middle of nowhere" and had no neighbors). The closest we get is the "Roadtrip" arc, in which Peanut mentions that their house is a nine-hour drive from Reuben's farm (although they give contrary indications as to direction; Grape says "going down", while Peanut says "nine hours up"). This is a distance of roughly 500-550 miles. Reuben's farm is presumably located in the south, judging by the accents of those who live there, but it could just as easily be somewhere in the midwest.

I always thought it was Ohio or Michigan or Indiana somewhere in those three states. However there is no way to really know for sure unless Rick tells us.

All I know is, it is not in Florida, Hawaii, Alaska, or most of the extreme southern states. I guess it will be process of elimination until Rick decides on a set location. Or go the way of the Simpsons...

Judging from the amount of snow they got in the winter, that general area sounds about right. Lake effect, anyone?

Ah, Springfield... bordered by Georgia, Kansas, Maine, and Kentucky Or something like that.

Judging by the accents is kinda tough. If it's a straight up Suthron accent, then it's pretty clear cut, but I've encountered that "Texas drawl" in Idaho, Montana, Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, and rural California (yes it exists...kinda). Us rednecks talk the same no matter where we are! :lol:
