Date: October 18, 2004
Summary: A continuation of Comic 14 - Beaver and Steve try to undo the de-invention of gravity.
Number of panels: 11
Beaver and Steve approach the time portal
Beaver: "We'd better go back and sort this mess out."
"Shortly..." Beaver and Steve are at a catapult loaded with an apple.
Beaver: "Elevation 48° ... Declination 32° ..."
SNIK! Steve cuts the rope and WACHUNK! The catapult throws the apple.
Sir Isaac Newton sits under the tree, reading a book entitled Hard Math.
SWHOOOSH! The apple speeds through the air.
Beaver: "Stay on target... Stay on target..."
SWOOOOOSH! The apple approaches Newton.
? Newton looks up quizzically.
SWAK! As the apple strikes Newton's head, he drops his book.
Sir Isaac Newton: "Gnnk!"
Beaver and Steve stand over the bloody corpse (and bloody apple) of Sir Isaac Newton.
Beaver: "Steve, I think we just killed the father of modern mathematics."
[To be contd.]
- At the beginning of this strip, Steve is suffering the effects of no gravity, while Beaver remains on the ground. At the end of the previous strip, however, neither Beaver nor Steve is affected by the lack of gravity.
- The phrase "Stay on target... stay on target..." is a reference to a line from the big battle in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
