Remember the scene where he convinces the gnomes he has nothing questionable in his backpack? There was no mention of what was in his sled! Well, it's not guns or bombs, the gnomes should be happy!

He includes the time he spent in school.

He'd have skipped to learning how to solder wires and components together but the humans INSIST that everybody learn to read, can you believe it?!

Dodom, do you have a ranking of your races in Fairy Dust of which races excel in what things? I don't think the Orcs are dumb, but they do seem uninterested in tech.

This page is a good example of why I like your comic so much!

That's a complicated question!
Individually, which race a character is doesn't predict their aptitudes very well. As a whole though... imagine if you could sort people by temperament and let such unbalanced communities evolve each on their side. They'd have more wildly diverging cultures than real life people could dream of!

This world's Orcs aren't any less intelligent than the other races, but they're aggressive and distrustful. They're attached to small groups, have little trust or empathy for the outgroup, and most would grow paranoid if surrounded by unknown faces all day. (in other words, they're human, only more so) So what's hindering their progress is that they have a harder time forming large enough communities to support it.

The kids being unimpressed by the electric light has more to do with their youth though: in their eyes, all the extra work that goes into setting up, maintaining and fueling oil lamps is drowned in the mass of adults' chores. Sure, flicking a switch is faster than beating the flint, but enough to justify all the mysterious preparations around it? They'll need to see more to be convinced!

Thank you!
I had to google some pictures to really compare, I can't say I see what's more ressembling in this page than usual, but I'll trust your impressions. Thanks either way!

I feel his frustration. Working hard on something and then kids are like "yeah who cares".

My brother is a professional magician, he hates doing tricks for children (and dumb people; dumb people are the worst public) because they don't always realise there were laws of physics to bend in the first place.

Heh, kids can be tricky. The more complicated the task, the faster they lose interest, but give them some chalk and a stretch of sidewalk, and watch out!

Children with chalk is like the thousand monkeys chained to a thousand typewriters thing, except if you chain a thousand children up in a room, you'll go to prison.
