I'm hoping somewhere along the way, we're going to see the rusted, cast-iron mold of Kal-El's cape from when he saved Lois from an overdose of liquid steel.
Backpackers camping in the snow have a similar checklist. You melt snow for water and fill bottles, and during the night you avoid leaving the tent by using a different, tactilely-distinct bottle. The latter bottle should be larger than 500ml. Trust me.
Jim, that's WAY cooler than anything I've got planned! I still wonder how that worked. I get that the cape is indestructible, but it's still flexible. Molten steel should've just encased them instead of splashing off like it did.Walter, I'm glad we understand each other.
Have been meaning to delve into your "little" project for many weeks now, so on my lunch break I caught up with everything. Good job, you've pulled me in. I suppose it's only fitting that I did this on lunch break between patent drawing assignments. Unfortunately, most of the inventions I illustrate are not as grand as mechanical men. They are mundane, invisible to the average schmo and are filed away to a life of obscurity. So keep me entertained!
Diabolos, thanks for catching up! I will do my best to keep things interesting. Also, if I'd known when I was 20 that Patent Illustrator was a career option, my life might have been very different.
You' d have been a full time patent illustrator/part time cartoonist wishing to reverse the roles! You know me otherwise as Frank of the Lindsay's Legacy 5k Run for pediatric cancer research.
Hey Frank! Figured it was you (I don't know that many patent illustrators) but didn't recognize your nom de plume and didn't want to assume. Hope you're doing well, it's good to keep in touch.
