[Comic for Friday, July 31, 2015]


[[Nick and Patty are seated in an observation lounge aboard the Grey ship. Patty has just slapped Nick upside the head to get his attention.]]
Nick: [Slight annoyed] Patty, I'm trying to tell you... I don't even know where to start.
Patty: That's what I'm trying to _help_ you with. You said something about helmets...

Nick: Previously, the MUTEX used helmets to transport users. I had to bypass that to move the earth, of course.
Patty: Yeah, that would be one darn big helmet.

[[Nick begins to concentrate, squinting his eyes as he thinks.]]
Nick: The helmet helped establish a static link between the users and the two worlds. I had to virtualize that for an entire planet. But maybe... if I can trace back along that virtual path...

[[Nick abruptly rises to his feet, running out of the room]]
Nick: Um, excuse me...
Patty: [Smiling while thinking to herself] My work here is done.
