Strip 255 -- First Seen: 2009-09-04
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.
Coming soon: SubscribeStar
I'm aware many of my erstwhile Patreon supporters have left the platform altogether, and I'm assuming most of you are upset by Patreon's recent politically-biased culling of "deplorables."
The good news is now an alternative to Patreon is again available, and it is called SubscribeStar. The bad news is this site has received so many applications for accounts that they're behind on verification/approvals.
So, if you like you can go look at my page there (https://www.subscribestar.com/quantum-vibe ) but you can't subscribe just yet. When the approval happens we will make an announcement here.
In the meanwhile, those of you with Bitcoins or Ether can always send me some love at the wallet addresses listed under the big Patreon button.
Thanks and please keep reading.
The Transcript For This Page
Still at the elevator terminal. Final bit if speechifying by Tobi. Here he's looking serious.
Tobi: You know who I really would like to be?
Tobi (2): My all-time favorite personal hero, Norman Borlaug.
Close two-shot of Bert and Ernie.
Bert and Ernie in unison: Who?
Focus on Tobi, with the others gathered around him.
Tobi: Who was the Cambodian leader who murdered over a quarter of his countrymen?
Everyone else in unison: Pol Pot!
Switch angles, now Tobi's back to us and we can see everyone else facing him.
Tobi: And what two 'world leaders' shared the distinction of having murdered their own countrymen somewhere in the eight-figure range?
Everyone else in unison: Stalin, Mao!
Medium close-up on Tobi, holding up a professorial finger.
Tobi: So you know these monsters who spilled an ocean of blood, but you don't have a clue about the hero who was the Green Revolution.
Tobi: The man who saved the lives of over a billion fellow human beings.
Group shot, put Ernie on the left and Tobi on the right.
Ernie: Uh, I'm guessing 'Norman Borlaug?'
Tobi: You should look him up in the Tanglepedia. It's inspiring.
Final group shot, focus on Tobi. Where we can see the faces of the others, they're smiling.
Tobi: He's my hero, but also my rival. I want to kick Borlaug's ass.
Tobi: I want to be the man who saved ten billion lives.
