S9.308 - Scan Dull



The gazebo's back, slightly redesigned so it's easier to draw. It was last seen on the mission QLogan's referring to (from 2015!) "88 mph". The "Beta Group" Para references is from the serial days, the original subject exploration. (It's a searchable term, if you only want to see their entries.) Now, to be fair here, Maud's failure may not have been due to the staffing.

In math news, apparently last Saturday (June 17) was the second annual World Tessellation Day. Yay?

PARA: QLogan, how exactly did you pick your crew for this subject exploration?
(Internal to the Ship)
QLOGAN: I scanned old records.
PARA: You mean for the beta group?
QLOGAN: No, for sending Maud back in time.
NIS: As head of science, I say you can’t add a magical switch!
HYPER: As chief engineer I say I can!
QCSC: You two want a trip to my brig?!
PARA: You know Maud’s mission failed, yeah?
QLOGAN: I wasn’t scanning that closely.

S9.307 - Tourism de Force



That mouse rollover text has been an idea for over a year, that I haven't used. Incidentally, it's true that more numbers are irrational than natural - there are levels of infinity. There's the same number of fractions as there are integers though.

Unrelated, apparently for this Council meeting arc (that started a couple weeks back) some characters took off their earrings. I have no excuse.

EXPONA: Having a casino would help with tourism.
PARA: Casinos aren’t fair. Let’s have a fair, and ferris wheel!
VERSINE: No, an escape room. To trap people here.
ARCTAN: Let’s create the curriculum’s biggest something.
QROOT: Biggest fights?
ARCTAN: No.
GAMMA: Could we use a healthy slogan? Like ‘Our numbers are all natural.’
QHYPER: More numbers are irrational than natural!
QLOGAN: I’ll go recruit, then see what other subjects are up to.
QSINE: Should we somehow consult TPTB?
QCOTAN: A tourism pamphlet can have math models.
QLYN: Right...
QCOTAN: Math swimsuit models.
QLYN: No.

S9.306 - Side Kicks



In the absence of suggestions, that's what we get. It's not quite retroactive continuity, I've been careful not to show that part of the table, and why else would the others all sit on the same side?

If you have tourism ideas to bring other subjects into math, the field is still open, as the buffer is empty again.

<<FIRST <LAST WK INDEX NEXT WK> END>>

QSINE: Tourism won the vote. We’ll need a minister of transport, so I chose QLogan, as he has inherited the gazebo ship.
QROOT: As education minister, I must ask if he has the same qualifications as his former serial counterpart.
 (One side of the room stares)
VERSINE: Since when are you a minister?
QROOT: Since the start. Pay attention to this side of the table.
QCOTAN: I keep forgetting to come to meetings.
