By definition, flora is a word of Latin origin referring to Flora, the goddess of flowers. The term can refer to a group of plants or to bacteria. Flora is the root of the word floral, which means pertaining to flowers. Fauna can refer to the animal life or classification of animals of a certain region, time period, or environment. The term is also of Latin origin, and in Roman mythology, Fauna was the sister of Faunus, a good spirit of the forest and plains. Sorry I had to do that.
It seems to me that there are occasional anachronisms in the strip related to exactly when it is supposed to be taking place. The Sunday strip is clearly modern-day, but the daily strip appears to be roughly 1940’s (though references to WWII are rare?).Anyway, my latest complaint is about Monday’s reference to helicopters. I don’t think there would have been reliable helicopters in Nairobi in the 40’s and maybe not even in the 50’s. But it seems to me that any later than that and Ivan would be using a different machine gun.Correct me if I’m wrong; I can take it!
I.E. Dick, really big cats, apes, or anything else that may want to eat you. Not to mention the two idiots lurking in the bushes behind you.
@Katman and dwkiser28603(From yesterday) You guys are good. Any weapon with a drum canister is a Thompson in my feeble mind. Check this link if you would:http://www.hungariae.com/PPSh41.htm(Pishhh-gowa!!)
The Flora here seems different of what I understand as jungle, it looks more like a garden of eden. You move through the jungle with a machete, right?
the strip is 1963…not the 40’s
So what if those two remaining soldiers heard the shots? If Ivan saved rounds he could easily take them down as well. Basil is the sneaky, nervous type, not willing to take big risks; while Ivan is the “brute force”of the duo….mow ‘em down, take the map, and away we go! Yeah, too bad Ivan doesn’t write this 1960s strip!The more “modern” Sunday strip really bites a big one,but at least it’s in color! :)> IvanGowa!!
The “Braseros” or “Brazeros” is the jungle/swamp you refer to Senor Night-Gaunt49? :)> QuagGowa!
