I guess this one could’ve been an editorial cartoon from a 1912 newspaper.
Best boat ever.
It’s the part under the surface that’s a problem; the part on top is heavier than the submerged part, so if you melted the top, it would keep rising higher and higher.
Yes Knodi but as you can see the flamethrower has melted an hole in the midst of the iceberg. I assume as it is pointed down it also boiled the water for a ways below the surface as well. The arch over the ‘berg provides enough weight to keep the majority of the iceberg’s mass submerged, allowing the ship to pass through. The Guy With the Glasses thought all this stuff through when desigining it I’m sure.
Lol @ trying to apply physics on a humorously meant comic.
Love the look on glasses guy cruising his ship right through that iceberg.
Is that a salt-shaker? Hah!
If you notice, the buttons on the last panel say “Fire” and “Salt”. For the same reason they drop salt on the frozen streets, though I forget what that is.
Salt water freezes at a lower temperature (-21°C for max. concentrated salt water). The salt is used on the part of the iceberg under the water surface, so the ship can pass without trouble and to prevent an ice layer on the deck of the ship created by the ice-slush dripping on the ship of the upper part of the iceberg. And that’s why this comic ist completely scientificly correct!
all you need now is a couple of glass of daiquiris. with ice, of course.
Titanic II: Revenge of the Ship
“This time it’s personal!”
… And they really are making Titanic II. I wish I were joking.
Awe, awesome comic, but this one would be easier to read if you flipped the third frame so as not to break the 180 degree rule (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/180_degree_rule).
@koos: Ah, good call. I see what you mean. I think I was going for a left-to-right movement thing, so to preserve that I could flip the first two panels instead. Hm, I’ll toy around with it in Photoshop to see how it turns out.
