Burr 1, Hamilton 0, Spielberg 58

Burr 1, Hamilton 0, Spielberg 58

The last of the Hamilton / Burr duel series. I could not resist finishing up with a pun and a reference to an old movie that I could watch time and time again, Steven Spielberg’s “Duel” from 1971. In fact, when I was 4, my dad and I used to lie on the floor and fall asleep to it…. 58 nights in a row during one stretch, and my mom protested 57 of them. FT :P
Here’s the trailer:

The Duel Must Go On

The Duel Must Go On

Part 4 of the Hamilton / Burr duel. As this comic illustrates, trying to reason with stubborn, angry people is a waste of time. At times, when my friends are acting like this, I think about Hamilton and Burr, try to help with the situation, get snapped at or ignored, say “have at it” and walk away. In that order. If nothing else, I learned some cool words for this comic. FT :)

Ask Gene Hackman

Ask Gene Hackman

Another insight from Mr. Hackman. I made this one as a “summary” of a series I wanted to do about Tesla, but I am rethinking whether or not to do it. I’d probably have to include Edison even though from what I have read, he was a real jerk. Luckily for Alva, Gene wasn’t around back then because he would have taken care of him. If you want to read a fantastic comic about Tesla and Edison, check this one out. It’s amazing! FT :D

I Treasure These Conversations

I Treasure These Conversations

Part 3 of the Hamilton / Burr duel. I was going to add a comic before this one and the last one to preface the fact that I was going to try to prevent the duel from happening. You readers, all eight of you are quite smart, so it was unnecessary. And I forgot too.  FT :P
