Can't help you, as I barely can understand leetspeak myself.  I also failed to understand the meaning of today's comic title.   :?

I did get the last panel though.  And I really like Hannelore's shirt.   :-)

That's two titles in a row I don't get. I barely grok Leet speak, and it's beyond me why yesterday's comic is named Canastesia. Beethoven's Fifth is many things, but sleep-inducing isn't one of 'em.

Still, I was glad to see Marten 'splaining the midnight sigh from a week or so back, although he seems to have reached that point a tad early in liiiiiiffffffeeeee.......

@ Raoul: Canasthesia is a play on synesthesia, where the senses get mixed up, for example, hearing colors or tasting music. Hannelore's geographical neurons fire to classical I guess.

I didn't get the whole emote-cock thing either until I looked it up, back when Marten was using it on Twitter. Urban Dictionary is a lifesaver. xD

And because some people get off on communicating with a select group in such a way as those outside that group haven't a clue as to what they're saying, although sometimes with unintentional results. I took a look at (don't ask why) a site comparing Beyonce to Rihanna* the other day, and it was rather shocking. I only grokked about a third of it. The problem is, if I didn't know better, I'd say the reason for my incomprehension was that everyone posting was mildly retarded and had been locked in an institution together for many, many years. At least Leet looks as though the computer's screwed the text some way (HeadwoŁnd's text looks shockingly similar to some of the mishmash generated when I try to open a MSworks file in Nisus), rather than the poster.

Now the question remains: even though they *are* written by Jeph, are the character Twitters canon?

It just worries me a little with the state of adult literacy in the UK and USA currently. Its higher in some of the supposedly 'undeveloped' countries of the world.

Also, i teach part time at a secondary school and partly thanks to text language and this leetspeak (or bullshit as i prefer to call it) a lot of the kids can't even spell properly. I know its not the be all and end all but it kinda worries me for the future of these people.

Moving on from the Red-Warning Hell Place....

I think Sven's shirt speaks volumes about the pain that is possibly coming his way.

Also wondering if chick solidarity will be involved when the intern next meets up with Faye?

"And then some."  *gigglesnort*

I like how Sven won't even look at her for the first three panels.
And... it's still an open question whether he's actually feeling remorseful, or just anticipating his impending death.  Note that he has (had) no plans of telling Faye.

And over in Twitter, Jeph's talking about putting out a QC book!  YAY

He knew what he was going into by getting involved with a lady with such emotional issues, but at the same time, they're not in a relationship. It's casual sex, and Faye is clearly not equipped to handle such a relationship.

my theory: Sven told Lydia hoping she would tell Faye, because he is a) scared of confrontation and b) trying to find a way to not "hide" it from her.  Ergo he gets someone else to do the job for him.

I am seeing this, BUT; (and mind, where I am this is very late evening and I'm tired)

it's presumably early in the day when intern speaks to Sven, yes? not the next evening anyway?

Who hasnt, in their life- woken up regretting something, decided to keep it quiet, then realized later on that day that they really are obliged to mention it, for better or worse? I know I have.

The first reaction is denial, or lying, the second is acceptance, the third is admittance, the fourth is consequence.

Sven is roughly at addmittance.

Nope, I don't see him as entirely in the wrong either. He never said that he was committed to her or that he was only going to sleep with her.

I think the intern is treading on a dangerous road, however.

If Sven really wanted to keep it quiet, telling the first person he comes across probably isn't the optimal strategy. 

To psychoanalyze a drawing, I bet Sven is feeling bad and is annoyed at feeling bad because he also feels he shouldn't feel bad.

Interesting.  I'm not quite sure what the intern's up to here.

On the one hand, if Sven asked her to lie for him, it's totally within her rights to say no (much the same way Faye did waaaaay back, with the blond girl outside of Coffee of Doom).  Right now though, she's acting more like an overbearing...

Huh.  Scratch that.  Overbearing, no.  Self-righteous, indignant, and annoying, yes.

She kinda jumped the gun on the "I'm the good guy" speech there.

As for Sven - so, will it be broken bones, or castration, I wonder?
