Off topic slightly, but I just want to say that I thought the previous cartoon "Liquid drooling system" was one of your very best, and I love all those animated gizmos in it too. Does it take a lot of work to add them in?

Thank Callipygous! We were wondering if anybody liked it. [Razz]

Yep the animations add a few extra hours to the comic's production, depending on the complexity of the animation and the intensity of our nitpicking.

This one we definitely wanted to do animation for, seeing as we were poking fun at Apple's animation

Excellent cartoon. I'm reminded of the sperm paratrooper bit in "Everything you always wanted to know about sex but were afraid to ask". (Which is a *great* movie)

Oh no, I can vouch for about 300 people (including me) who watched it as an introduction to sex education. Learnt more from that film than in a terms worth of lessons - of course, there were no "now put your condom over the cucumber like this" exercises, but you can't have everything.

Wow, that was a while ago. Makes me feel old

How did they explain that gigantic boob scene?

/teacher: Here is a rather large teat, in its natural habitat...drifting across a field....

/Class: Ohhhhhh....Ahhhhhhhhh......

I don't think anything was explained, it was more learn for yourself. All the sex ed lessons were taught by random teachers who just wanted to help out, and one of them was (probably still is) this wacky chemistry teacher. If I recall correctly, this was his lesson. Suppose it was easier to do than preparing a script, making OHP slides and worksheets... just let the kids watch a smutty film instead [Smile]

We watched a film for the sex-ed part of freshman biology, but it was "The Miracle of Life," which shows the entire process - from conception to birth - in more detail than you ever wanted to see. It was very scientifically accurate, and probably some of the best birth control ever.

I haven't seen "Everything you know...", but I have seen the Goodies episode "Gender Education" episode. In which they get asked to produce a sex education video by an extremely prudish woman, who entitles the film "How to make babies by doing dirty things". It's probably the funniest episode on the DVD, IMHO. Episode guide here and here (scroll down til you get to gender education)

Absolutely not. Anyone who missed out on the Goodies led a sadly deprived childhood [Wink]

People are actually buying used corks on ebay. I was giving them to a friend that grows orchids in them but he has plenty now. I guess many people buy them for craft projects.

People buy used corks? Amazing. I go through about 150 corks a year, but I think it wouldn't add up to enough cash to bother hoarding them.

Corks are actually a much recycled item.

Wine consumption has increased quite a bit in recent decades, but cork supply has not, as cork trees grow slowly, and the bark cant be harvested until the trees are quite old (~60 years, from memory). Harvesting the cork without killing the tree is also quite tricky, and skilled craftsmen make quite a good living.

Supply and demand being what it is, this has led to an increase in cork prices, and made cork recycling a viable industry. One of the aussie charities does quite well out of its 'give us your used corks' drive.
