This comic is the 11th comic in a row in the series of comics about the 2020 pandemic of the coronavirus - SARS-CoV-2.

This comic is about social distancing, a common practice to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 disease. It has been suggested to maintain 6 feet (i.e. 1.83 m - in countries with SI units it is 1.5 m) of distance between yourself and other people, to prevent the transmission of respiratory droplets from you to others (or vice versa).

Randall takes this 6 feet of distance, and does calculations of the "area" of distancing, "border", population density, and "real estate value". With 6 feet of distance, these calculated variables are incorrect. Besides the radius of the body, only a radius of 3 feet has to be taken into account for a distance of 6 feet between two people. He finally culminates in determining the number of horses that could also fit in the space.

Randall's border length and approximate area calculations are based on a zone with an outside radius of approximately 6.8 feet or 82 inches (2.07 m), meaning that the person has a radius of approximately 0.8 feet or 10 inches (0.24 m).

The title text is a pun using the alternate definition of foot, noting that a human has two feet and a horse has four, so 8x4 + 2 = 34 feet.
