    Whatever that hypothetical something is, I’m betting it looks like an ancient tomcat.

    Modern self-centeredness is the new geocentricism?

    I´m a big fan of your work… I especially love today´s comic :) Keep it up!

    Panel 5 is the best panel

    Haha, good call in panel 5. Love this one!

    This page could easily have been mean spirited in the hands of another cartoonist, especially panel five – but Cat and Girl always seems like an internal conversation to me, so it just looks self-depricating.

    I have no problem with solipsism. It just means that personal judgments are made internally, rather than at other people.

    I laughed harder at this than at any other comic. At panel 5. Great!

    Of course there are things which draw many of us into their orbit, but I would think much of life’s twists are purely random, like some kind of brownian motion.

    Ulysses Everett McGill: Hold on, I don’t want this pomade. I want Dapper Dan.
    Pomade Vendor: I don’t carry Dapper Dan, I carry Fop.
    Ulysses Everett McGill: Well, I don’t want Fop, goddamn it! I’m a Dapper Dan man!
    Pomade Vendor: Watch your language, young feller, this is a public market. Now if you want Dapper Dan, I can order it for you, have it in a couple of weeks.
    Ulysses Everett McGill: Well, ain’t this place a geographical oddity. Two weeks from everywhere!

    I’m enjoying reading it spiral wise–panels 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 8, 7, 4 and then 5.

    Excellent. Panel five just replaced the “sometimes I mistake this for a universe that cares” bit of taped to my monitor. Love the ‘vignetting’, too.
    @Thing: nice idea, works pretty well!

    Oh man, Girl is so being me today…or maybe I am being like Girl. I haven’t been to the EXACT Center of the Universe so I can’t tell!

    There is no center of the universe, so as a point of reference of course anybody can define him- or herself as fixed.
