: Beyond the Point of Stopability
Jun 30, 2006

Running downhill is fun, it gives added super-speed that could not be acquired otherwise. There is a point where your legs seem to be moving on their own, you are basically falling in an upright position and there is no stopping you, you have gone beyond the point of stopability.

Also the third frame with Wally falling straight down from an object that is flying forward based on his forward momentum is bold demonstration that this comic will not be intimidated by actual physics. 😉

Be sure to tune in here on Monday for special news about the comic as well as celebrating it’s first year anniversary!

    Is ZWOYP a word?

    In the immortal words of Scotty of the Enterprise – “You canna change the laws of physics”.

  2. Sev says:

    Hey now, mayhaps the box has a good deal of lift. Also, Wally may have pushed off when he fell, such that the box and Osbourne accellerated away from the cliff edge while Wally accellerated toward it such that he balanced out his forward momentum.

    But it’s the roundels in Wally’s eyes that I cherish.

  3. BriGuy says:

    The last panel reminds me of the last panel of the strip” toboggan: brake chute”. Osbourne just doesn’t understand what’s going on around him in both of them. 🙂 : roll:

  4. Matt_D says:

    Cartoon physics are still physics! At least that would make Physis class all that more interesting.

    I believe this particular rule is called Road-Runnering. A character won’t fall (more often than not, the Coyote) until he realizes he is on mid-air.

    ow 🙂

  6. Lee says:

    COYOTE (placard) I wouldn’t mind, except that he violates the laws of physics.
    ROAD RUNNER (placard) That’s OK. I never studied Law.

    Brilliant. Solid Gold…on whatever the internet is made of…

    um… osbourne…..nevermind

  9. axis says:

    um… osbourne wally’s not…..nevermind

  10. Rick says:

    I think osbourne should throw a water baloon at wally and see what happens

  11. izzieluv says:

    ha ha ha ha 😯 wally didn’t expect that now did he?

  12. Athena says:

    It’s times like these that you really wish penguins could fly.

  13. Mr. Obvious says:

    Wally totally fell out of the box leaving Osbourne in the air! That’s funny cause Osbourne hasn’t fallen, but if he open his eyes…he will…ROFL.

  14. says:

    Hey Osbourne ! I think you might want open your e… nevermind .

  15. i love running dowm hills but oim a total clutz(even my dad has called me that) so i start at the top of the hill running and get at the end falling or tumbleing

    Obey Gravity; it’s the Law!

    :mrgreen: 😯 😆 ❗ 😥 ❗ 😆 ❓ 🙁 😮 ❗

    warning Osbounes lost his brakes

  19. Jenny says:

    ZIP! ZHOW! “Uh-oh. Coming in for a landing….” CRASH! SCREECH…”Uh-oh. This thing is busted.” “Osborne! The box! What happened?” “I think we crashed the plane, er, box.” “(sigh.) What now?” Great ending, huh?
