     If it was unintentional rape, does that make it ok? Answer: probably not, but maybe we should not read too much into the comic...[[Special:Contributions/108.162.254.66|108.162.254.66]] 16:24, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

The transcript of this comic says that Cueball is under the water for three of the four "water" panels. However, based on the wave visible in the first two panels, the splashes caused by his feet in the third panel, and the lack of a wake in the fourth panel, I believe that Cueball is sliding across the water on his feet, instead of being submerged most of the time.[[User:Codefreak5|Codefreak5]] ([[User talk:Codefreak5|talk]]) 16:57, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

I feel like the child should fall at a shallower angle from horizontal. There must be some way to do a punnet square for these things... BruceJohnJennerLawso (talk) 22:47, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

The "when he was restrained, it grew erratic" seems to imply that gravity always pulls him horizontally to the surface he's on. Otherwise, he would be able to stand on a wall, instead of bouncing around. This is one weird kind of gravity.108.162.219.7 20:10, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
