#793 – Gaius

We really had to plan ahead if we wanted to play in the little plastic pool we had as kids. First of all it took forever to fill it up. Hours felt like days. When it was finally full we still couldn’t get in because the water was just warm enough to be in a liquid state. We had to let it bake in the sun for another few hours so that we didn’t get hypothermia.

    Apparently whatever gravitational anomaly is going on there only affects organic matter, or there would be a more…”shocking” image there.

  2. Kbman says:

    So Biff finally figured out how to make sUpeR MaRio GalAxY gravity work.
    That wall better have support structures that rival NASA’s.

  3. The Dustin says:

    If I look at this sideways, the clouds outside still work… Biff just has a Velcro wall for the lamp and his flip-flops

  4. Three of Nineteen says:

    A convenient place for a jacuzzi, actually. And when you don’t need it, just put a bronzed Rembrant in front of it to hide it.

  5. SoySauce says:

    I always like to see Biff defying the known laws of physics. It makes him more interesting to me.

  6. Linzleh says:

    Biff is chillin’ with his radical water manipulations. A wall pool would be great; temps in MO this week are very humid 90’s.

  7. Nilly says:

    .. This week’s theme is eluding me. :blink:

  8. Chris says:

    @Polymorph – Or maybe the sideways gravity doesn’t start until the surface of the wall.

  9. This reminds me of a scene from the music video of Pressure, by Billy Joel…a guy is sitting in a room, suddenly he falls (feet first) into a bathtub on the wall, much like Biff’s pool.

    Can I borrow is AG generator? I can think of a number of very useful things to do with it

    Interior design by Escher!

    @The Dustin: You have a very good point. The electric outlet would then match every other outlet I’ve seen where they put the second outlet above the first. It makes for a weird paint/carpeting scheme, but this _is_ Biff we’re talking about.

  13. Chris says:

    @Steve – The outlets are always horizontal in Biff’s house.

    i had the same problem with the pools at my house… that they were freezing, not that they were sideways. my mom would boil a teapot and pour it into the water to warm it up.

    incidently, the last time sideways gravity was mentioned, with the 73 graham crackers on the wall, is one of my personal favorites, im glad to see them return.

    I wish I had one of your cold kiddie pools right now! It is insanely steamy here in New Orleans (yesterday’s high was 104F, though the low of 82 last night was cooler than previous nights). I have a regular adult-sized (horizontal) inground pool that feels like a hot tub without the jets! not remotely refreshing…

  16. Devious_Psychopath says:

    @beth didn’t rain where you were? or was it just us in Slidell?, which is right below NO (i think)

  17. Radical Edward says:

    Kiddy pools were okay. but they ended up leaking.

    Besides, I’ve haven’t swam in a pool in years.

    Once again the Biff Universe coincides with the Great Chase Universe (a game I have been making for several years, most of the universe being built before I found this comic) with watter doing whatever it wants :D.

    Lets see what things from Biff can happen in that universe, that a very simalar thing happens in my games universe (all from before i found the comic)
    – Biff’s eyebrows
    – Biffs inability to die after literally getting exploaded
    – The eating radioactive substance and running while glowing green is incredibly important
    – Water doing whatever it wants
    – keeping tea warm with Uranium
    – Fact that he can shrink and grow things
    – Things with perspective
    – A living toaster
    – owing your own rocket

    I know there was more but i just cant think of them at the moment, I don’t feel like going into why these things are in my universe too but trust me they are.

  19. @-2: You should make a website of the game and put it on your “comment user website” here.

  20. weerd2normal says:

    i need an explanation on this one

  21. Ziggy Stardust says:

    Staple everything you want fixed down to the floor and turn on the sideways gravity- voila! Very refreshing.

  22. i.half4 says:

    @ weerd2normal: The simplest explanation is: this is Biff’s world.

  23. -2! says:

    @ Andore Mordre

    That is the eventual plain. I just have to finish it!

    hopefully it will be -2!.com 🙂

    This reminds me of Super Mario 64 for Nintendo 64. Such a great game, I’m glad I never got rid of mine.

  25. YukiSnowflake says:

    Yay, someone brought up the bronzed Rembrant again!
    Haha… |:D

  26. YukiSnowflake says:

    @John – Uh… duh? Super Mario 64 HAS to be for the Nintendo 64 because it ends in 64. Thats like saying “I HAVE TETRIS DS FOR DS.”

  27. SirLink says:

    @YukiSnowflake-Not so-there is a Super Mario 64 for Nintendo DS
