I kind of get the feeling this comic might appeal more to The Oregon Trail crowd, but not necessarily to all of our regular readers, so apologies if you don’t get it. Of course, you’ll also need a basic knowledge of U.S. current events to get the comic, so even more apologies to everyone who is too young or too far away to know about such things. Number Munchers was another early educational PC game that a lot of us probably played in elementary school. I had totally forgotten about it until Ray brought this idea up, but luckily I was able to relive some of those childhood memories online with this emulated version. There’s also a flash remake here. In any event, we’re not trying to spark a political debate here, it’s just that $787 billion is a staggering number, even for an old pro like Muncher!
