Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Casey and Marie are sitting on a couch in the Davies College basement nook, which is at the north end of the college, away from all the areas with wifi coverage. Casey is reading what is clearly a book by Terry Pratchett (Jingo, I think). Marie is staring disconsolately down at her laptop. A sign reading "West of Bathurst! (by Kari Maaren)" is taped to the wall beside them. On the sign, an arrow points from the words towards the couch.

Marie: Damn it...

Panel 2:

Marie: It's stupid that we don't get wireless in this part of the basement.

Panel 3:

You could move to the library.

I don't want to move to the library.

Panel 4:

Casey: The computer lab is ten feet away.

Marie: I like it here.

Panel 5:

Casey: Then you'll have to like it here without the Internet.

Marie: I find the very concept deeply distressing.

Panel 6:

Casey: What do you want me to say?

Panel 7:

Marie: I don't know, but draw it out. I need some way to procrastinate.

Casey: Ah.

Alt-Text: Annoying Your Best Friend Until He Tries to Shave Your Head with His Fingernails is one of the most successful procrastination techniques ever.
