The End of the Journey ComesThe end comes not with a long beep from the heartrate monitor, nor with a great sigh, but the beginning of the credits. Stay and watch them. Who was that lost childhood friend that your father refused to talk about? How about that anonymous lady at the train station with whom your father shared but a single moment, yet one that stayed in his mind for the rest of his life? You need to find out.Besides, there could be a post-credits scene with your father warming advising you, Ferris Bueller-style, to move on with your life. Berkeley Mews shouldn’t encourage readers to miss this important time.#webcomics #BenZaehringer #BerkeleyMews

Neoplatonic Hair Is a Bad IdeaIn his theory of forms, Plato explained that physical things cannot be perfect but can express only the imperfect essense of their ideal states which are absent from the physical world.You don’t actually want perfection because you are not perfect and therefore cannot experience full completeness in its presence. As Zach Cranor of Last Place Comics teaches us, to have perfect hair is to have no hair because perfect hair transcends the material plane.This is not to say that it is best to be bald. Contrary to Plato, be humble. Accept your place in the chain of forms and get your rats.#webcomics #ZachCranor #LastPlaceComics

How to Teach Lord of the FliesThe English teacher in The Jenkins comics is sticking to the book with her teaching method. But to make the class organization more chaotic, leave two conchs behind and say, as one closes the door, that only one of the conchs is real.William Golding, who wrote about the collapse of civilization by young boys in The Lord of the Flies, was deeply cynical about human nature. So it’s worth nothing that, in 1965, when six Tongan boys from a boarding school were shipwrecked on a deserted Pacific island for 15 months, they all survived and thrived cooperatively. They even cared for one of their number who broke a leg so that it was completely mended by the time of their rescue by a passing ship.#LordoftheFlies #webcomics #TheJenkins

I Don't Want to Play WordleI’m aware of Wordle, of course. I can’t login to Twitter without being deluged with the Wordles of the people that I follow. Occasionally, I’ll retweet funny jokes about Wordle. But my interest in actually doing Wordle, or any other puzzle, is zero.I’ll join Randall Munroe of xkcd in giving this answer from now on. Although, in a proper study, all participants should be blind to their group placement, it is inevitable that some people will figure out that they’re getting a placebo or are not receiving the same treatment as others.#Wordle #xkcd #RandallMunroe #webcomics

Translating a Cat's MeowsFluffy misunderstands. The humans aren't deaf; they're just stupid. They don't understand that cats must have food delivered on demand. Jimmy Craig of They Can Talk should explain this to the kitty.#JimmyCrag #webcomics #TheyCanTalk #cats
