Just to get the ball rolling.

Option 5 also aplies to people who live in Miami, Phoenix and San Diego.

Also it's good that Cosette is OK.

Hey, San Diego got rain too. Up here above LA it was still cloudy, but got better as the day went on. Tuesday was the worst day, with nearly two inches of rain and temps as low as 40F (How the fuck do you stand anything lower than that, most of the rest of the country?). Wednesday was beautiful and clear.  

So... Is it just me, or are both Friday and Monday's comics numbered 1555?

It's just you (paranoia +5).


As for the comic; wait so he writes a strip about masturbation and expects us to believe his hand is sore from drawing? Sure, Jeph, suuuuuure.


Also, just to make sure: is Faye still rooming with Marten? Because she never seems to show up there except in group settings anymore. The only pairs seen in there are Marten/Dora and Pintsize/Winslow. It's never Faye sitting on the couch snarking at Marten or something.

So doing things to his junk (other than the obvious) in others' bathrooms is a behavior pattern for Steve (remember Pintsize's 'Castro' beard?). Somebody better warn Hanners. She'd have to burn the place down.

D'awww. All Dora wants to do is curl up like a cat, but Marten's skinny frame just doesn't have sufficient lap for her to pull it off.
Maybe she could try Faye's...

Even with her extra padding, I beleive Dora will find Faye considerably less cuddly than Marten.

In fact, I don't beleive anyone, anywhere has ever used the word 'cuddly' to describe Faye.

(links to several occasions where Faye has been described as 'cuddly' by other characters in the comic in 3, 2, ...)

Ah, yes, I forgot about Faye's defensive spines (a separate mechanism to her offensive barbs) for a moment. Who else around here has a lap?

Hannelore? No; flailing is not conducive to curling up.
Marigold? Combine Faye's reaction with Hanners only about one-quarter as severe. Still not happening.
Luna? Unlikely, hasn't even met this one yet.
Sven? Would have been adorable if she were twelve or something, and Sven wasn't such a man-whore. Currently far too creepy.
Penne-lope? Depends if Wil is in the room or not (she might not even notice if she were in turn sitting in Wil's lap. Yay for recursion!).
Who else?

Tai? almost as bony as Marten.
Jimbo? Maybe, if he took a shower.
Angus? The stink eye that Faye would give her would melt glass.

That leaves Veronica Vance, but Marten might have a problem with that.

Maybe she should just stick to Marten, but try the side without the arm of the couch in the way.

I bet it's one of those freebies from the Audubon Society or something like that. I once donated a few dollars to them to get a complimentary fleece blanket, which somehow put me on every environmental PAC mailing list known to man (generating a ton of wasteful junk mail, irony of ironies). At least they keep me well-supplied with return address stickers.

And I was apparently the first one to vote. Good timing I guess. Yay for sexing up that pie on the dinner table (or for the other gender, the, um spatula? Whole carrot? Baby carrot? I dunno.), although doin' it for the Weta mocap people was tempting.

Maybe she should just stick to Marten, but try the side without the arm of the couch in the way.

I'm pretty sure Sven being her BROTHER would be a teensy bit more of an issue than his man-whore status. But as long as we're on family, her dad had a decent sized lap from the looks of him. At least until he asked about her oral hygiene again.

Yeah, but then there's all that weight on the mattress with you, taking up valuable flailing room. But then, I've adapted to sitting in a chair during my, erm "sessions". At least it leans back. And I always feel eyes on me, but that's just the jaguar picture.

Sexiest opening sequence ever! The breaking dawn, sun glinting off the waves, afterburners gaping like dragon's nostrils, sleek engines of destruction climbing into a bruise-coloured sky... Pity the rest of the movie sucked. Roomba's certainly got the fighter-jock attitude down; pulling straight into a vertical bank immediately after take-off. A flying roomba immediately reminded me of Spindrift, the rather dorky spaceship from Land Of The Giants, which probably just shows how much bad Saturday morning TV I watched growing up.

Or, given that he has no control surfaces whatsoever, the torque of the turbine is pulling him over like that. On the other hand, if you really want to give your Roomba a jet engine, I expect someone is working on the mod already, just because.
Hmm...I wonder if those obstacle detection routines can be used as landing radar?

What?? No duct tape?  Dude, that dinky black stuff won't last half a minute!

I know Pintsize has duct tape issues, but still, engineering should trump anxiety.

p.s. ZOOMBA ... FTW!

Me, I was wondering what sort of thrust to weight ratio you need to get that sort of lift.

The Roomba is just a much less aerodynamic F-104....

Probably a bit less then what would be needed for the average pig.

Catapults, jet engines, and rockets are wonderful things.

With enough thrust the body of the roomba itself should provide adequate lift. The little fins on the side are just for control.

Reminds me of this

Cranking one off does not mean that you can't get it on when the lady friend is available again.
