A couple weeks after our last adventure, D managed to tree his Gamma 370. However, it dawned on us that the entirety of the propulsion components of the 370 (Motor, ESC, and battery) were available from the local hobby shop. Given that the rest of the Gamma 370 was just some foam in the shape of an airplane, we decided it would be interesting to try to build a plane from “scratch”. Here’s what we had to work with:

IT’S A POST BY J!!!!!!!
Ahem. Anyway, now that I’m back on the same side of the country as D, we try to get together every weekend to do something. At some point we figured we might as well document some of what we’re doing and put it on Nonsense Wars. That’s the entire point of having a blog/website right?
Step 1: Do stuff.
Step 2: Take photos of yourself doing stuff.
Step 3: Post photos of yourself doing stuff to internet. Maybe write about yourself doing stuff.
Step 4: Do more stuff.
Some of you might object that “??? […] Profit!” is missing. That’s not how the internet works for most people.
Anyway, on to Step 3!

An actual incident that happened to me when we were cleaning up the lab. We found a whole bunch of “art objects” (sculptures or models/tiny reproductions thereof) and some rock slabs that had been used in a 3-D imaging project. We sent them to MIT’s mailing list for used stuff that’s up for grabs … and by the next day almost all the rocks were gone.
This comic almost got filed with the other Real-Life Random Acts of Stupidity, except that neither D nor I did anything stupid this time. Also, I debated having a “Completely Unamused” face for the last panel, until D pointed out that “CO-O” is a signature NW pose. J’s never done it before though…
Well, November’s update a little early as I’m gong to be busy next couple weeks.
We’ve certainly got a lot of mileage out of boats this year. This is probably the fifth or sixth relevant update. I don’t really remember what prompted me to draw this series (obviously the boats did, but I’m referring to the fact that I basically never draw 4koma about “The Adventures of D and J”, regardless of whatever stupidly funny things we do), but here it is in it’s full three-page glory.
J agrees that, for the most part, this accurately depicts all the silliness that went with the first boating outing (except for maybe the “pew” on the propeller thing). I think J also agrees that the drawings relatively accurately depict the physical state of me and him…
So, recently, the MIT Anime Club had an event, “Snooty Anime Discussion Hour”. I quote here the event description:
“It’s like the Internet without the flaming and trolling! Join fellow fans in discussing current and exciting issues in anime, fandom, and the industry in a forum-like setting. Or just sit in and learn more about our favorite medium! Tea and snacks provided.”
Of course, as it’s a snooty anime discussion hour, there must be hats. So I made this one with my friend TV&:
I didn’t actually wear this one (I had a large pirate hat), but it was for my friend wah, who runs this blog here.
