For those who have asked or have considered asking about the flooding currently occurring in West Virginia: Our family is safe. Our house is up on a mountain and far enough from the flood plains to not be directly affected. However, there are many people in our area who are affected. If you wish to help those in need, please contact the WV division of the American Red Cross or the WV VOAD, or check out this Huffington Post article for additional links.

[Comic for Wednesday, May 7, 2003]


[[In the basement of GPF, everyone listens to Nick's explanation of his invention.]]
Dwayne: Nick, what in Sam Hill is going on here?
Nick: Dwayne, you are about to be introduced to my newest invention.

[[Nick points to a bunch of chairs with helmets suspended above them and a machine behind them.]]
Nick: This is the Multi-User Titanic Entertainment Experience, or "MUTEX." It is an advanced Virtual Reality system that allows users to explore fantasy worlds in detail.

[[Sharon, Dexter, Ki and trent stand nearby. Ki thinks about this for a moment.]]
Ki (thinks): This smells like a bad movie parody...
Sharon: Is this why we lost power? How does this thing work? And what's with the chairs and helmets?

[[Nick points upward with a stern look on his face.]]
Nick: No one can be told what the MUTEX is. You have to see it for yourself.
[[Ki slaps her forehead. Fred, Dwayne, and Sharon look at Nick inquisitively.]]
Ki (thinks): Crap.
