    Galen of Pergamon, late first early second century CE. Works were used for treating patients for more than a thousand of years. While he didn’t invent the idea of four humours his advocacy of the idea kept it in vogue through the centuries – with blood letting being the favored method of attempting to restore the balance. Yep, his writings killed a lot of people over the centuries.

    We have truly self-driving cars now… But we don’t have good self-driving cars. I can’t see it happening, but a hundred years ago no one saw the internet, and a hundred years before that no one dreamed the telephone was possible. Our dreams of what will be possible, or impossible, in the future won’t change what really happens.

    Croptop, after realizing she’s been scammed, can’t go to the police and complain, “I’ve been robbed!”

    My suggestion.

    And this story line isn’t?

    IT’S A SCAM!

    I got thinking, how would Croptop know this, unless hundreds of other people also knew it? And, if hundreds of other people know it the book will not be for sale, the owner will be using it him / herself to get the loot. (And, the fact you need to rob a bank and have investors go in with you to have enough money to buy the book shows the owner knows it is supposed to reveal the location of a treasure.)

    So, the book is a fake. Art Dekko may be mysteriously out of prison again and pulling another forgery. Only rather than an elaborate art forgery that was obviously fake he’s trying something more modern. By a used children’s book at a thrift store for 50₵, scrawl something in the margin of a page and start the bogus story circulating, “Hey, did you hear the one about Scardahl?” and wait for someone dumb enough to fall for the gag.

    It’s even weirder. The fact the throne room is deserted should tell Tarzan the ceremony is still on (no one has come back yet). And why did he want to get into the throne room anyway? And, the coincidence being as good as anything in Dick Tracy (Gould may have learned his coincidences from ERB) Tarzan looks out the right window to see the last minute of the ceremony taking place.

    I am the main shopper, and cook. I buy for the meals I plan to make. My wife impulses buys when she accompanies me to the store. “Oh, I might want to eat this before it goes bad.”

    And, Dog forbid I should throw out any long expired food, she regards it as an invitation to fill up the empty space with more foods she won’t eat. (Or another bottle of beer she might want to drink someday, or a fifth water bottle – just in case she loses the first four behind all the junk she’s stuffed in.)

    Sorry… This has nothing to with the Garfield strip. I was cleaning out the fridge yesterday.

    Until the programmers start accepting sponsors. And then you’ll wake up to find your car parked outside a Pizza Hut, or WalMart.
