Non-bostoned?
« on: August 26, 2010, 04:42:21 AM »
Today's strip says "The maps we got from Kerchak are recent and non-bostoned, right down to allocation of forces." What's "non-bostoned"? I don't recognize that term, I think? I know Boston, MA...

Yeah I didn't get it either.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Was there supposed to be a footnote or something beneath it? I'm seeing a broken image link under the strip...
This propaganda has been brought to you by High Priest and Occasional Pope Archbishop Shivertongue Von Slamdance VI, of the Vibrating Purple cabal of POEE (Paratheoanametamystikhood Of Eris Esoteric). All rights ignored. Salvation not available in Idaho. Hail Eris. All Hail Discordia. Fnord?

Good catch. In the source, it looks as if there's
<img src="/comics/schlock20100826b.txt">
which doesn't seem to work?

I told Howard on Twitter, and it's fixed now.

As a newcomer to Boston (1 year now), I fully endorse both uses of the term as defined in the footnote.  GPS is God's way of telling Boston that you should never let cows design roads.
Nature hates being reified.

Cows didn't design Boston roads.  Drunken Puritans designed Boston roads.  Cows would have done a much better job.
