God damn it, I knew I was forgetting something yesterday. I went to bed early yesterday as well seeing as I was tired. Sorry /co/.
Also, I found the hi-res scans last week, though the colors are unfortunately not true to the original books, however it appears that there's little to no artifacting.

Nice, thanks OP.

Curse you, political correctness.
No problem. Again though, sorry for forgetting to storytime it yesterday. I was hoping this wouldn't ever happen.
The end. The Secret of the Unicorn storytime next thursday, that is if I remember to do it this time.
What were your favorite moments?
It's not that I don't want to, but don't count on it. I don't feel comfortable with having them uploaded to a MEGA that I own myself. I just don't want to risk having the feds knocking at my door, y'know?
To word things differently: I'm too much of a pussy. Google is your friend. I will however give you a clue on where I got the hi-res scans: Cat spelled with a K.
My first ever Tintin book and a personal favourite, but something that always threw me off with this is how is the meteor floating?
Obviously you've got to give Herge a big bit of leeway because this was written in the 40's, just like you do with the Moon stories, but I never could get a head around that part.
I just assume it's because it's a crazy space rock and leave it at that.
Well, I tried clearing my cookies and flushing the DNS, but that didn't fix anything, and the images display just fine on a different browser. If I remember correctly though, I got this issue in the past and it eventually decided to just fix by itself.
The earthquake sunk the meteor >>77592332
If it was near a cliff, a tremor would tilt it over after the ground beneath the meteor shifted and into a deeper crevice. I mean, getting hit by a meteor would cause damage to the earth crust and earthquakes
Was worried about you yesterday, OP. Glad to see this today.
OP, If it weren't for me you'd never bothered to find the better scans. Don't forgot those who helped you.
I saw some of the Belvision cartoons, I wouldn't call them better or bad, but they're interesting. Like you mentioned, Calculus was in it, and he was in pretty much every single Belvision adaptation alongside Haddock, even if they weren't even meant to be introduced yet. So you get to see some sort of "what if" scenario with how one of the stories that didn't have either Haddock or Calculus would turn out if they were in it. I disliked how Calculus didn't always have hearing issues, and how he only had them once in a single adaptation out of all of them.
It's considered controversial because of how Africans are depicted in it, though according to one of the opening pages in the english black & white version of Tintin in the Congo, Herge said that his intention was to denounce how they were being depicted in the first place at the time.
Trippy read. Wasn't expecting the rapid growth, and the con-job with Golden Oil was a nice touch.
Can't wait for the next one. I was first exposed to it via the Nelvana series, but it'll be my first time actually reading it. Should make for a nice change of pace.
Maybe most of it is low density rock, like pumice.
Also, Archimedes principle
>Any object, wholly or partially immersed in a fluid, is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object.
After the "earthquake", meteorite breaks, changes its shape, buoyancy changes, sinks
A star sized spider would be truly horrific.
Has any fiction done anything like that? Insects and arachnids the size of celestial objects? We have a lot of tentacle monsters and alien fish and such, but has anyone did star-spiders or star-insects?
I storytimed this in a Tintin thread a few weeks ago. I'm gonna storytime it again to add some more reading material to help keep this thread up over the weekend. I'm not OP btw.
This is a fanmade Tintin comic that was made sometime in the early 90s. Tonight, I present to you:
