Early Start

In Indonesia, kids smoke like it's their job

...do it for the kids!

  1. As a true Indonesian, I can only shake my head in grief. Parents, mostly dads, teach little kids to smoke. Like father like son, so they say.

    Indonesia is morally bad, even with a strong ideology. Corrupt people, little kids dating, the list goes on and on.

    I like my country, I truly do. I just wish people could come to their senses and be a good citizen as they should.

  2. You do know that rokok is a Dutch loan word (from: roken), so with your German knowledge you could have guessed the meaning ;)

    1. Ah, this story comes from Malachi's brother Erik though. Not sure if we've ever been told which languages Erik speaks.

  5. Is there a way to see the alt-text in Chrome? I've been going months and months not even knowing that your comics had alt-text.

  6. Me neither. I'm using firefox and the only way to read the alt-text is by doing an inspect element. I think you should just display it below the comic, but otherwise even xkcd's mouse over-event would help.

  8. I'm using either Safari on an iPad or Chrome in Windows 10. Don't see alt text when I hold a finger on the image, the way I would for, say, xkcd, and in Chrome I had to right-click and hit "Inspect" to see what it says.

    That said, it's really not worth the trouble, as the alt-text seems to be just a description of the comic and/or its point. If you can't see it, you're not missing much. For this one, "In Indonesia, kids smoke like it's their job."
