Apparently the guy who drew cc-tails.gif thought he hit puberty (eeeewww)

You still got all those extra guys you see cameos of on occasion. And
whats wrong with Rotor and Bunnie :) [lots of silly comments involving
Rotor having more to tinker with than Bunnie's robotic parts deleted]

They said he was 5 in a recent comic (Issue #23) and I know I read he was
'4' from someplace else. Personally, I think the TV show making him 10
is the most reasonable number.

Yup. Nicole (I think) was presented in the 'In Your Face' special.
However unless Tails somehow aged 4 years when everyone else aged only 1 I
see no real way for the comic and tv show to both be correct no matter what
the time you set either in. (Okay.. You've got the possibility of
relativistic time dialation if Sonic was running with Sally fast enough :)
[ I'm really suprised Sally doesn't have dislocated shoulders the way Sonic
just yanks her about by her arm like that ]

This brings up another question I had.. How fast in MPH can Sonic run?
The comic's 'Sonic-Grams' avoids this by never giving a straight answer :)
My best guess is "at least 1000mph.. probably not a whole lot more.. not
including 'Power Ring' boosts". Where do I come up with this? During the
episode 'Sonic Racer' Robotnik tested a new bot at 500mph going 'half-speed'.
It would have to be a decent challenge for Sonic if Robotnik were to be
satisfied with its performance. Therefore 1000mph sounds we're getting close
to Sonic's top speed. I mentioned this before but I don't think I mentioned
it to the group at large. [ Metric fans.. 1000mph is about 1600km/h ]

Too bad I never learned how to read rot13 in my head like I had wanted to do
at one time. :)
