    Tycho might be jealous for other reasons.

    The funniest part of that one remains the 23-hour time frame.

    The throw-away line at the end is my favorite part.

    For some reason the strip Bursar posted always made me think of Tiresias. He's a mythical Ancient Greek prophet of Apollo who shows up in the Odyssey, as well as Oedipus Rex, & Antigone.
    Wikipedia wrote:
    On Mount Cyllene in the Peloponnese,[4] as Tiresias came upon a pair of copulating snakes, he hit the pair with his stick. Hera was displeased, and she punished Tiresias by transforming him into a woman. As a woman, Tiresias became a priestess of Hera, married and had children... According to some versions of the tale, Lady Tiresias was a prostitute of great renown.

    Years later, Tiresias found another pair of mating snakes, trampled on them, and was turned back into a man. Also of note:
    Wikipedia wrote:
    In a separate episode,[11] Tiresias was drawn into an argument between Hera and her husband Zeus, on the theme of who has more pleasure in sex: the man, as Hera claimed; or, as Zeus claimed, the woman, as Tiresias had experienced both. Tiresias replied, "Of ten parts a man enjoys one only."[12] Hera instantly struck him blind for his impiety. Zeus could do nothing to stop her or reverse her curse, but in recompense he did give Tiresias the gift of foresight[13] and a lifespan of seven lives.

    The snakes, the "fucked, and was fucked by" specification, the wistfulness for a period during which he was ostensibly under a curse... It's vague, but that was enough for my mind to make that connection.

    You'd think he would have learned to stop killing snakes like a dick after the first time.

    I mean, dude was apparently enjoying herself after the first change, so why not keep a lower profile?

    Sometimes it's snakes. Sometimes it's ant lions. And sometimes it's a hydra comprised of an unending number of your parents' disapproving heads.

    Honestly, this is why I never ever take a pill when I'm flying.

    I'm not big on any substance that screws too much with my perception and such. One of the reasons why I don't drink.

    I'm afraid that if I took anything strong enough to knock me out, I'd wake up shackled in some jail cell and find myself on the no-fly list because I was sleep walking / saying crazy-s**t / getting naked / etc. during an international flight.

    I just plan my travels accordingly. If I have something important on a Monday at my destination, I try to arrive Saturday or early Sunday so I have time to rest from a potentially sleepless flight.
