Didja know you can learn things through comics? Well it's true! In fact if you get a lot of promotional comics put out by various state agencies and municipal utility corporations, you can learn all kinds of stuff!
We here at American Water Works aren't saying we ARE going to flood America. Just that we COULD, if we really felt like it.
All that water for less than a bottle of pop? I'm not surprised. Have you seen what they charge for a 2-liter of Diet Coke these days? On the other hand, FIFTY GALLONS? We should TAKE so many baths!
Mmm-mmm, the brisk taste of copper sulphate! When this comic was re-released in the late 1960s slight changes were made to reflect concerns about another kind of contaminant local municipalities were dealing with...
Meanwhile Mickey and Goofy take an Exxon-sponsored trip through the world of energy!
WOW, solar energy PARTIALLY powers MOVING THEATER CARS! Way to make solar power look totally lame there Exxon! Not that you have any vested interest in keeping people contemptuous of an nonpolluting energy source that shines down on everybody every day and that you can't make a buck off of or spill in the ocean. No sir.
Meanwhile soil erosion threatens us all!
We're not saying we ARE going to build a 400-mile high tower of eroded sediment on a random football field somewhere in the country. Just that we COULD, if we really felt like it.
Also; sad fisherman.
Hey pal, maybe the day after the Great Flood Of 1977 isn't the best time to land the big one.
And now get ready to giggle!!
That's right, 'rubbers'. I'll pause while you all snicker. Let's just get it all out of our system class, we have a lot of learning to get through and if we could all behave like grownups we might not have any homework this weekend. Class? CLASS!!
DECEMBER 7 1941 - A DATE THAT WILL LIVE IN INFAMY AS JAPAN'S ATTACK ON PEARL HARBOR HAS THE TERRIBLE CONSEQUENCE OF CUTTING AMERICA OFF FROM RUBBER. ALSO THOUSANDS OF MEN DIED AND MOST OF AMERICA'S PACIFIC FLEET WAS DESTROYED, BUT THAT'S NOTHING COMPARED TO LOSING OUR RUBBER.
And the Korean War was handily dealt with in a few days thanks to AMERICAN MADE RUBBER!! Which apparently is what that tank is made out of.
Meanwhile across America the illnesses of pets and livestock are being fought by a new breed of medical professional!
The ironic part is Jim Brown really wanted to be a "horse doctor," but they got rid of that degree halfway through his junior year and so he had to switch majors. What a bummer.
This educational comic does not shy away from the harsh realities of veterinary medicine. Yes, occasionally you will have to put animals down. Hence, veterinary medicine is a great field, whether you really LOVE animals, or really HATE animals. Something for everybody!
"I SPECIFICALLY like the lurking savage horror of alligators when introduced to new environments - say, local storm drains, or womens dormitory crawlspaces. Hey, where ya going?"
Chocolate. Failing to make the face red since 1700. (what the hell kinda coffee these crazy ladies drinking anyways?)
And we end our learning experience with INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH and its power to tilt Dad's hat, make Junior hike his pants way up, make Mom gaze in wonder at Dad's tilted hat, and Sis just thinks the whole thing is a gas. INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH - for AMERICA!!!
