You may remember Rochelle’s father who made a couple of brief appearances during her feature story with Mindmistress – Buying the Stairway to Heaven – see pages 1 and 24.
Given how little she was reacting to anything, this violent treatment was necessary.
The answer was disguised as her hair all along!
Looks like Oz called it. Well done!
Yes, I did laugh when I saw that comment posted to the previous page!
W00T, pizza for everyone!
I do see an error. You likely meant “The square root of four is two.” The square root of two is 1.414213562373095 (at least, according to my computer’s calculator).
It says the square of two, not the square root of two.
@Ave cube root rather than square root
Yep, that’s right, cube root not square root. Pretty sure she has the correct answer there…
Someone set their calculators display to way too many digits! 🙂
wouldn’t 1 5/8 be simpler to say?
i mean 1 3/5.
True – but it wouldn’t sound anywhere as brainy!
My mistake. I read square root, for the reason that that’s what my brain automatically thinks of for a mathematical problem that uses a root.
In the first panel, it should be, “you’re smarter”.
Right you are – now fixed, thanks for picking that up.
Are those physics equations Rochelle’s spouting there?
They look like it, but they are overlapping so it is hard to read it all. I can see some calculus as well, which is used in physics calculations all the time. I am not sure, but I think I see some quantum wave formulas as well.
i wonder if she is going to make some super glow hair dye for a new look for herself now.
I regret but one thing about this resolution:
I actually liked Rochelle with long, black hair. :-\
Oh well… one day maybe 😉
Rochelle chops her hair as part of her Buddhism, correct?
And while we’re on the subject of her intellect… so, how great is it in comparison to Mindmistress’s? Not quite on the same scale I’m guessing, but still two or three times “normal” genuises, correct?
MM is a fair bit smarter – for a general comparison check out this… Recreational Activities of the Smart & Brainy!
Okay, that helps… and is quite funny!
So it kinda seems that MM is to Rochelle as Forethought is to MM.
Hm…. Forethought, MM, and Rochelle all working together… now THAT would be a brainiac team for the ages.
Love that strip, but I noticed what I think is a mistake. For 10, you wrote “100^+0”. 100^0.5 would work, but as written I would think that would result in 1, unless you are using a notation I am unfamiliar with.
Throw in Dabbler from GrrlPower (http://www.grrlpowercomic.com) as another one of the super-brainy team. You would need to drag along Sydney or Kaycee just to force the others to explain their plans and conclusions for the rest of us.
I’m not certain it was meant to result in the numbers 1 through 10 as there are two 8’s and an irrational number
Yes, those errors were pointed out to me way back at the time I drew it… I really should fix them as it makes Rochelle look stooopid! I think because it was a simple, fun one-off I never got back to it but I will some time soon.
