Funny how a flying engine block can focus the mind so wonderfully…
You try to gently smother a sleeping person, they wake up with their adrenalin surging almost immediately.
Same thing here.
What is Shelly? Supergirl? I mean, an engine block weighs what? 500 lbs? I’m a pretty strong guy myself and I can lift the back of an Audi A4 – but the front is out of question. And she can THROW that engine?
Hell, if Bud or the others would throw this I’d not ask. But Shelley is only human, isn’t she?
She DID go on a hardcore vision journey quest thing…so maybe she’s more than human.
I think the reality is this: NEVER tick Shelly off. Obviously she has broken the ‘barrier’ that all humans unintentionally impose upon themselves. Meaning, she is strong enough to lift and throw engines when angry. GermanWapsiFan, I bet even *you* could do it if you broke your barrier.
Keep reading, keep reading.
Yes she is strong enough to throw an engine. No, she isn’t well enough informed to accept how freakish that is.
But look! She’s trying to learn more about herself. You go, Shelly.
As a 130 lb (50kg) high scool weakling, I could pick up the 4 cylinder Chevy Vega engine block my physics teacher kept in his classroom to repeat Galileo’s weight-dropping experiments with one hand. (I did have strong grip.) That was a 2.3L cast aluminum block. Iron, on the other hand, is almost 3x as heavy. We don’t know if this block is aluminum or iron. V8s made with aluminum blocks include GM’s Northstar 4.6L, LT5, several of the LS engines, Ford’s 4.6L Modular, and doubtless a number of others.
But we’ve seen Shelly throw an entire V8 engine before.
I’m not sure, but that might be a straight 4 instead of a V-8… still scary impressive.
Mental block, meet engine block…
its a good thing he might be immortal
the women in this strip love to batter him about really.
So, given that Monica was at least ten or twelve when she was hit by the bus (that’s just the impression I got, no actual proof) and Shelly looked no more than six or eight when her mom died, is Monica much older than Shelly?
(Never mind, Shelly was ten, according to Tepoz a few strips later.)
Your memory honestly that bad, or do you maybe not pay attention to what you read?!
Tepoz quite clearly said he had info about “the vision quest she went on when she was THIRTEEN”. I mean geebus, that was one page ago.
As for the ten years you saw mentioned later, Shelly says she’s “puzzled over that day for almost ten years”. Meaning not that she was ten when it happened, but that it happened ten years ago.
So all in all, Shelly is almost twenty-three.
Monica is a little over a year older than Shelly.
Oh my gosh! a loaf of bread, a container of milk and what was that last thing? ah hahahaha
Poor Tepoz… He keeps trying to tell girls important things and they respond by attacking him!
