Title: WCDT strips 4481 to 4485 (15th-19th March 2021)
Post by: BenRG on 14 Mar 2021, 15:38
The last we heard, UR might be in a lot of trouble. Sam's sprays may be the only regular income stream the company has and it's reached the point where Faye may not be eating properly because she simply can't afford it. How do you think that the story arc of Union Robotics will be resolved?

I'm thinking that all it takes is luck. I have a feeling that Faye or Bubbles are going to hit on something that will turn around their fortunes. Maybe something that focusses on the one part of their business that seems to be working - cosmetic augmentation and improvement.

What do you think?

Hmm. The Sprays go viral on the robot version of the Internet? Could happen.

(I read somewhere in opening a small business you have to budget that you won't make a profit for at LEAST a year. So, yeah...)

Looks like the poll results are giving us three middle fingers.

EDIT: I wonder if Elliot gets his stature from his mother or from both of his parents?

I voted "Actually more successful..." because I don't think we're going to see a storyline about it failing - I think we'll just see references to how it is struggling, but with no actual consequences, and then some time in the future it will start to be depicted as more successful.

Clinton, it's very simple. Elliot is a guest and it would be the height of bad manners to charge a guest for a meal. You, on the other hand, are the guy who volunteered your mother to make a meal for a stranger so that you could have a 'safe' social interaction with him. So, yeah, I think that she might be viewing you and Elliot with a different mindset right now.

Additionally, Aurelia probably want to impress her cute guest. Not always for reasons she's consciously happy with but, if she's anything like me, 'reaction' and 'impulse' is far, far ahead of conscious planning in any social situation.

"Other"  :-D

Union Robotics continues to lurch along (like a badly maintained stereotypical cartoon robot), yet miraculously manages to stay solvent by a combination of luck, scrimping and saving, and occasional brilliant ideas. One end result is that Faye loses a lot of weight, much to the alarm of Bubbles...

 Elliot back-story! Now I really want to meet Elliot's Mother!

However, bringing up 'labor time' is always a bit of a low blow to me. Like, you cannot fault the baby, that's just bullshit.

I'd like to think that Elliot's mom was the model for the series of robot chassis that Bubbles is one of. Of course, I'd also like to think his father looks like Lou Costello, but that's just because I'm very. very strange.

It's a bit of a messy situation, honestly.

Clinton: "Hey mom, I'm coming over for dinner!"
Aurelia: "Great, honey!"

Later

C: "I'm bringing a friend, do you mind?"
A: "Not at all"

Later

A: "Whoops, dog ate the groceries!"
C: <freaking out slightly>
A: <orders takeaway>

So probably, if Aurelia had cooked the meal herself, she probably wouldn't've charged Clinton, but with the added charge of the eaten groceries AND the takeaway... That adds up. She can't ask Elliot to pay, since he's a guest, but her son is fair game :)

It doesn't seem logical to me. Aurelia wouldn't be the type to waste food like that, and she'd probably tell Clinton straight up if his behavior bothers her.

Y'know, I think that I understand Aurelia a bit more thinking of all the pictures of Claire and Clinton on the wall. The two of them have been the centre of her world for a very long time and that's all good and right but, now they're both growing up and more-or-less out of the house, she's desperately looking to find who Aurelia is and what she wants, possibly something that she hasn't been able to focus on since her marriage.

The only reported instance of a sub destroying another sub whilst both were submerged was the 1944 sinking of U-864 by HMS Venturer, with the captain of the Venturer having to work out the vector for the torpedoes in three dimensional space using paper and pencil.

In other words, sub on sub is possible, but itís going to involve some intense trigonometry.

I was wondering, because being a bottom is not inherently not having the power in the situation, or not being assertive. But then I'd argue a sub in a sub/dom relationship is the one that should have the supreme control anyway...

I guessed from the start that Jeph would ultimately reuse the "He's a nice boy" line from when she first met Marten.

However, now the penny has dropped, she has something of a dilemma after having basically spent the evening flirting with Elliot. Does she rush upstairs now to apologise and possibly burst into the bedroom to interrupt the two of them making out on Clinton's bed or something? Or does she wait until she's sure she isn't about to interrupt something?

I genuinely don't see where y'all are getting that she was flirting? She commented that she wasn't expecting Clinton's friend to be Elliot (the "look like that" imo referred to the fact that Clinton is a geek into AI rights and Elliot is a giant, non-hipster) and didn't let Elliot pay. That's... idk that's pretty normal mom stuff?

 If we as the reader didn't realize she was into him, I'm not sure I'd have gotten that from just their interactions.

Did I miss a strip of arm-touching and breathy compliments?

i would agree that she wasn't really flirting with elliot, no. a bit of the table conversation could be argued to be a slight flirt, but really comes off more as showing the youth that she can be hip. with baking.

I agree, I didn't see any flirting coming from Aurelia. A little bit of fluster, but that's not a problem.

I don't like how Jeph is doing those blushes. I thought in the last comic that Clinton just had some freckles that only showed up when he blushed. Now it's looking like either an artistic choice, or maybe some sort of conversion error between filetypes when going from drawing the comic to printing the comic.

But while I don't approve of the blushes, I wholeheartedly approve of the ship setting sail!

It looks like that's a Super Famicom cartridge held at a weird angle with the label coming over the top like a SNES cartridge, because at first it looked like an N64 cartridge but that would make the controller make no sense. Also, I guess that must be a 3rd party controller because the start and select button layout is weird. Also, Claire importing a Super Famicom seems somewhat unlikely to me. I wonder if QC verse didn't have separate versions of the SNES per region so we're seeing a different variation of the design.

Hannelore mentions earlier in the story that the robot boyfriend is a "prototype," which suggests that it's either the first chassis of its kind or one of the first. Assuming Robot Boyfriend predates Cindee-21, then Clinton would still be in high school then, which is likely about 3 years back.

Then again, it's Comic Time, which is notoriously fluid. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I was wondering the same thing, and I don't think so. The only AI up to that point were the small ones, like Pintsize and Winslow. It might've been the time that Jeph started fleshing out the QC verse.

Post by: BenRG on 18 Mar 2021, 00:33
It seems that Jeph is running into the same problem that Willis is - Keeping up with technology when the characters age a lot more slowly than the passage of time IRL. For example, someone on Patreon pointed out that, given what we know about Claire's age, the game console was already a bit of nostalgia technology when she owned it, which makes me wonder if it originally belonged to Aurelia and we have a situation as in Uncharted 4 when young Cassie Drake has inherited her mother's Playstation and copy of Crash Bandicoot.

As for Cindee, I think that poster is probably the QC-verse equivalent to that poster from the 1980s of the tennis player girl. So, probably many teens had that poster and lusted after it! That said... Is Clinton actually pansexual?

Regarding humanoid AI chassis, Jeph keeps on stretching out the timeline to the point where I'm thinking that the first AIs appeared about 20 years before present (around the turn of the millennium if the 'present' is the 2020s). However, because it has been noted in the strip, both the singularity and AI Emancipation Act remain about 3-5 years before present.

A search for '1980s tennis girl poster' finds it.

Awww, I remember the 'start of the relationship' awkwardness! Sweet memories <3

Way to ruin the mood, Cosmo.

I don't know if Cosmo's timing is miraculous or pure disaster here. However, we shouldn't be surprised. After all, she's already made it clear that Elliot is her big human. Why should she let anyone else muscle in on that claim? Like Elliot said, she has a lot of cat in her personality!

COSMO: "Stop human-talk and play with me instead!"

If you've never had a pet behave in this way then you've never had a pet, in my book.

Reading a boating magazine while still giving Steve crap about ordering it.
