Strip 216 -- First Seen: 2009-07-13
Escape From Terra is updated with new pages every Monday through Friday.
SubscribeStar Update: All Systems Go!
The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is now open for business.
Those seeking an alternative to Patreon for supporting Scott and Quantum Vibe, SubscribeStar is another option. Paypal is not available with SubsribeStar, but credit cards are accepted. Plans for accepting crypto-payments are in the works. Stay tuned.
SubscribeStar update: Not yet
The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is open, although the site seems to be going through some growing pains.
For that reason I'm advising Patrons looking to switch over, to wait a little while longer. I subscribed to a couple of channels there and there are some billing issues. If they get cleared up within a week, I'll announce the ALL CLEAR and invite everyone unhappy with Patreon to come over.
The Transcript For This Page
Three-shot of Bert, Ernie and Tobi at the table on the patio. Re-establish the scene from Friday. Bert is looking askance at Ernie, who is looking anxiously over his left elbow at the ground. Tobi looks amused.
Bert: A micro black hole. Inside the planetoid?
Ernie: Isn't it eating the planetoid right out from under us?
Medium shot of Tobi, munching on a mini-sandwich in one hand and his iced tea in the other, kicking back and waxing professorial.
Tobi: Yes, but very slowly.
Tobi (2): You have to realize just how small a 50 nanometer event horizon is. You can only stuff so much down it in a given time.
Another cutaway view of the micro-black hole at TLP's center. Just slightly closer in than last time.
Tobi (Inset): 'It will take many, many millennia to drain this bathtub.'
Three-shot of Bert, Ernie and Tobi at the table, focus on Ernie, who is turning his head back and forth looking at both Tobi and Bert in alarm as they are looking like x-ray skeletons in skin bags. (special-effects sight gag)
Bert: But isn't it still throwing off huge amounts of x-rays and other nasty stuff?
