LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT COOLNESSIN MORE DETAIL.

COOLNESS, SOME DATA.

GLASSES AND PANTS HAVEVERY SIMILAR COOLNESS VALUE.

YOU SEE, IF THEY'RE DARK,

IT'S COOLERTHAN IF THEY'RE CLEAR.

NOT AS COOL.

OKAY, IT'S EASIER TO MAKESOMETHING COOL UNCOOL

THAN IT IS TO MAKESOMETHING UNCOOL COOL.

FOR EXAMPLE, A LION:

COOL.

TO MAKE IT UNCOOL, EASY:

ADD A SWEATER VEST.

AND HUMAN ARMS, APPARENTLY.

BUT TO MAKE SOMETHINGUNCOOL COOL,

MUCH MORE DIFFICULT.

OKAY, LET'S TAKE A STAPLER.

UNCOOL.

ADDED SKULL, FLAMES,

SWITCHBLADE?

WHAT ABOUT LIGHTING SHOOTINGOUT OF THE BACK OF IT?

AND IT HAS THE ABILITY TO FLY.

IT'S JUST CUMBERSOME.
