What are the haps my friends

August 30th, 2011: I wrote this comic while stuck in 14 hours of traffic between Toronto and MA! Other things I did while parked in bumper-to-bumper in traffic:

  • Got angry
  • Got sad
  • Made peace with "emotions"
  • Bought a can of cola from a woman who set up a hand-delivery cola shoppe by the side of the road
  • Talked on a walkie talkie until the batteries died
  • Watched my wife walk to the car behind us where they were eating chips, and then she came back with a bag of chips
  • Got passed by someone walking on foot
  • Tried to guess wifi passwords of the houses we were passing; how is "homeiswherethisis" not unlocked by "theheart" or "yourheart", I ask you
All in all it was more fun than I could've reasonably expected!


Holy crap look what I made; I made the best poster:

GUESS WHAT JUST CAME OUT: IT'S MY NEW BOOK!! If you've ever wondered what you'd do if you were stranded in the past, wonder no longer! With HOW TO INVENT EVERYTHING, you'll reinvent civilization from scratch, no matter what time period you're in. You'll become the single most influential, decisive, and important person ever born. You'll make history...


Here's the trailer!

One year ago today: this comic inspired by my good friend joey comeau, who when he lived with me was mr "candy and red bull for breakfast, candy and red bull for lunch, all-you-can-eat buffet of tummyaches, regret and recriminations for dinner"
