I don’t think it works that way…
i didnt know there was a man in the sun..
You just have to look really hard.
sounds like fun i’ll try it
He’s about to be in a world of pain….
3200 magnification telescope + sun=Retina? What’s a retina?
Er, thought it was a telescope for some reason. Really, really big lens then. XD
Friends, 3200 is the (ISO/ASA) speed of the film, a property unrelated to the lens he uses.
Regular film speeds for everyday use range between 100 ISO (sunny days at the beach) and 400 ISO (people wearing grey sweaters on a cloudy Sunday afternoon in industrial Liverpool).
Basically, Biff, as often, has completely misunderstood a concept and gotten it the opposite way it is. In this case, it is the gauge used to describe the light sensitivity of photographic film, and he will hence get a totally black (overexposed) negative when he develops it.
In my darkroom days, I used to joke myself in the opposite direction when I experimented with 25 ISO negative film, that even cardboard would be more light-sensitive.
I even made up a claim for a fictious advertisement praising a 25 ISO speed film as “the negative for catching that next supernova just right”.
Retina?!? He may just fry a hole straight thru his entire head!
Even if Biff uses a tiny aperture so as to not horribly overexpose the film, a 3200 ISO would produce such a grainy image that the man in the sun could not be distinguished.
Sigh.. another attempt to finally prove the existence of The Man in the Sun to the skeptical scientific community, foiled.
Yay for blindness!
Is it bad that I find a tad more pleasure in reading all of your astute comments than in most of the panels?
Nope. I’m the same way.
OMG. I started at #200 and went backwards to this. Between the comics (funny) and the comments (funnier) I’m laughing so hard I’m snorting. I have almost peed my pants at least twice.
Wow…..uhm….WAY more info than I needed, there. Ew.
biff looks a little odd in this one, its just something about him is different
Could it be his eyebrows going backwards?
It’s going to explode his head like an ant under a magnifying glass.
The man in the sun is the guy who makes all the flaming hammers
whats a flaming hammer? Hey stephennie, another backwards reader like me. Finally.
A world of pain? The sun is far, far bigger than worlds. He’s in for pain on interstellar scale. And that makes me smile.
Why can’t we see the light burning through the BACK of his head?
because…thats in another comic =P
You can never photograph Chuck Norris!
Solar Flare or Lens Flare. Equally deadly with this camera.
dude, be carfull. that guy is tricky
there is no man in the sun, it’s really a woman in the sun
He didn’t go blind! for he only opened his eyes once. when he was electrocuted. Remember kids don’t suck on electric cables.
