What are the haps my friends

February 2nd, 2010: Yesterday was the seven year anniversary of Dinosaur Comics! I started the comic on February 1st, 2003. Holy crap! Like in most years, I only noticed the anniversary when someone let me know, which makes me probably the worst parent -- but it's okay because my "child" is not "actually" "alive". OR IS IT??

No it's not, but thank you everyone reading these words! You've let me have the best job in the world, and I really really appreciate it. Thanks so much!

Okay so TODAY'S comic was inspired by a Reddit thread, What's the craziest fact you know that most people don't know? It was one of those links that you click thinking, yes, YES, I am probably going to learn something awesome today. And I did, thanks to meloveyoulongtime! Poops on the MOON.

There have been a lot of moon comics AND poop comics lately, I am happy with the two recent obsessions of T-Rex being the moon and also poops, I feel that this is the best we could have hoped for.

YOU LIKE TO READ: Probably, huh? Well GOOD NEWS: my book To Be or Not To Be (choose-your-own-path Hamlet!) is in the new Humble eBooks Bundle! Up to FIFTEEN books at a pay-what-you-want price, plus you support charity (and artists)! Definitely worth checking out, if you ask me.

NEW SHIRTS: As you may have noticed, I've spent the past all this year coming up with a new shirt design every month. Then I sold them for two weeks only! But now they're BACK... for two weeks only. Check them out! There are some PRETTY FRIGGIN' AWESOME shirts here. There's also a new one about dating, kinda?

One year ago today: to my knowledge there are no helicopter pilots who have married poorly who read my comic. if you are one, then hopefully by "married poorly" you just mean "the wedding itself was ridiculous, strictly amateur hour"
