Comic #2784

1 Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs: Wait. The entire crew of a Nazi U-boat just died of a completely non-paradoxical fireball in 1940.
1 Death of Choking On A Giant Frog: What caused it?
2 Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs: Er... they were on board a 1650s pirate ship and the pirates fired a torpedo which exploded the powder magazine...
3 Death of Choking On A Giant Frog: True, that's not strictly a paradox.
3 Death of Choking On A Giant Frog: But you're supposed to be investigating paradoxes and avoiding fireballs!
4 Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs: Oh yeah. Darn.

The word magazine was originally used to refer to a storehouse of weaponry, in particular artillery ammunition. The etymology is from an Arabic word makhazin, meaning a warehouse.

Nowadays of course, the much more common usage is to refer to a periodical publication. It came to be used for this following the publication of a periodical titled The Gentleman's Magazine in 1731. It was given this title because it was intended to be a "warehouse" of varied and useful information for gentlemen. From this humble beginning, the journal gave its name to an entire form of media publication.
