This is the 159th Subnormality comic.

Plot Summary Edit

A man is in a hardware store shopping for lawnmowers when Justine approaches him. She begins to discuss her interest in lawn mower engineering and her preferred models, and the man disintegrates while her back is turned.

He materialises in a different dimension, surrounded by aliens who discover that he was unable to reconcile Justine's interests with his own bleak outlook on life, and spontaneously collapsed through a dimensional rift. They are at first horrified that a dimension exists where creatures are so closed-minded, but quickly conclude that the man must be an outlier whose disappearance will have left his home dimension better without him.

Back on Earth, Justine sits at the bus stop and sighs, frustrated and saddened by the way men like this react to her presence.
