Its easy to get down from a tree like that.. Pass your laptop to your partner, you climb down, then pass the laptops to the person on the ground, then SHE comes down. 18:36, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

No, you can't leave both laptops with one person, because then the fox will eat both of them. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~) ♥♥♥♥
Unless you are Russian, meaning there is a rather insignificant chance that the fox MAY be tame. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~) 02:17, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
Getting down from any tree is very, very easy. Physics wil help you. Unless you mean getting down unharmed?-- 09:10, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

I don't really understand this comic, even after the explanation. What are they doing on their laptops? And why do they need to go to a beautiful and isolated setting together to do it? Also, which is more typical behavior, teen or otherwise; to be enjoying a wild party, or sitting quietly with a laptop? Hint: guess which one I'm doing now? 20:41, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

btw love the 'fox' comment...the most insightful thing on this page! (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

January '14, in January '04, the laptop usage was still a bit nerdy. And in 2015... why aren't those dorks using an "iPad"[tablet] or just their phones up in that tree? 14:53, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Ok, I don't get the impression that the comic is implying that these two are special or anything, they'd just rather be elsewhere, doing something else. Something which I can appreciate. I mean, maybe they're introverted a bit, but whatever. -Pennpenn 06:07, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

I hate loud parties more because of the "loud" part than the "party" part. 02:24, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

So, are those two sitting in a tree daydreaming of being at a party, or are they at a party daydreaming they're in a tree? Jelsemium (talk) Jelsemium

This comic has so many possible extensions he might have run with. What if one person was at the party imagining being on the tree, and the other was on the tree imagining being at the party? Would some of the imagination become recursive? What about everyone else at the party? What are the laptops thinking about, do they wish they were playing a LAN game with each other? I think later he might have gone for more complexity but this is early work from a simpler time. David Bofinger (talk) 02:07, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

This comic easily could be repurposed as a commentary on the pandemic. Fizzytrater (talk) 16:47, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
