We've really only seen him in relation to his interest in Faye, and we know he is kind to Marigold.  There's still plenty of room for "issues", and when we've tuned in during a work anecdote, he sounds very aggressive.  I suspect something will surface.

How do you know whether he's ever found anyone more desirable, from his PoV than Faye? As for "more attainable" has he not just "attained" her? You don't get much more attainable than "currently yours." Indeed, he appears to be holding on with both hands...

It should have been easy to find a girl in Northampton who didn't pour hot coffee  on him or throw him across a room. In the newspost to #784, Jeph said "Either megalomaniacal or masochistic, or both."

Without leaving Coffee of Doom, he could have found someone curvy, friendly, available, and (albeit cloaked) highly intelligent.

You know, one thing that's always astounded me is that everyone I know, without exception, who's tried brewing tea in coffee has hated it.  I don't think I've ever seen any combination of foods that so many people have tried and no one has liked; there's always one weirdo.

I never tried it, but I did once break a $20 espresso machine by filling the basket with tea leaves.

I'd forgotten about that comic.  Do we assume he wasn't living with Marigold at that time, or that he considers both her and Momo his housemates.  Either way, I can't picture Marigold doing that.

No, but he's going from there to Faye.  He seems to be attracted by abuse! 

Also, I had one  friend in grad school who put teabags in his coffee, but it wasn't for the taste - he said he was "layering" his caffeine.

From the Africa moment onwards, Faye has proved to be remarkably unabusive of him.

In other news, this morning after reading the comic, out of morbid curiosity, I have soaked a teabag in hot coffee.
The result was positively vile.

I used to mix high-caffine tea bags and coffee back in school, especially when finals came around, and assignments started being stacked onto us. Sure, it does taste really bad, but two or three cups of that stuff will have anybody awake and twitching for days on end.

Hmm no.

I think Fayes skill at sass is what attracted him.

And he probably simply thinks she's cute.

For comic #1776...  (and remember: if someone asks you if you are a god, you say, "YES!")

1. It also took me a long while to "get" this strip, with the coffee + tea angle.

2. Panel #5 was all sorts of laugh-out-loud awesome and horror-inducing at the same time.  Dora's head on a pike with the askew eyes. Hannelore's skull pierced by the spider-demon, eyes popped out, and her clutching her face to tightly you can see the skin bunched up in her fingers :-o .

3. More Cthulhu references!  Is another font-change upon us...?!?

4. Cannot say I have had yerba mate before.  But mixing caffeine upon caffeine can induce certain..."perspective changes," yes...

5. As for calling a sandworm, just turn on a body-shield in the open sands and wait a few minutes.  Me, I will be in the ornithopter at a safe altitude.  [P.S. Edit ADD: man, I miss the Dune references in this web-comic... :-( ]

I'm not sure if I get today's strip, but anyone who uses tea-bags deserves what they get: the taste of cheap tea and paper, eldritch horrors, whatever. Loose Chinese tea, brewed in a proper porcelain pot or gaiwan on the other hand... :-)  But Hanners is probably just after the caffeine?

And yerba-mate is a real thing, it seems. QC is so educational.

So how long will Angus' Alley Grope last?

It's over already, we'll switch scenes Monday.    - 8 (23.5%)
Still going. Nothing outlasts the Energizer bunny.    - 2 (5.9%)
It will last until Dora goes psychobitch.    - 2 (5.9%)
It'll stop when SVEN sees it.    - 1 (2.9%)
It'll stop when Jeph says so.    - 6 (17.6%)
It's still National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so I'd say (looks at watch) another two weeks.    - 9 (26.5%)
I'm only here for the coffee.    - 2 (5.9%)
Uh, waffles?    - 4 (11.8%)

He looks more like a Balrog to me.

Also, I filled out the poll after the comic had come up, so I picked something I would have picked /before/ the comic was up.

I just noticed: Angus is one of the few characters who doesn't have issues.
His self-chastisement when he thought he'd offended Faye over her father's death indicates to me Angus is quite hard on himself. Most people who are so inclined have more than a few hang-ups. Give him more comic time, and they'll emerge.

Actually, I can think of one right now that's directly related to the above—Angus thinks of himself as unattractive, insofar as he can't imagine Marigold would be into him. Others (or so I am constantly told) would've gotten the hint long before she jumped him. It may be nothing, but this sort of thing can cause problems.

Edit: laizeohbeets, I was thinking Jeph must've been reading some of the "To Reign in Hell" Vampirella comics, in which Adam Helsing has, for some reason, bleeding sockets instead of eyes.

I was also a little confused.  I need to slow down when I read these because I thought it was going to be one of those awkward moments between Hanners and Dora since Hanners went out with Sven.  And the fifth panel almost made sense as Hanner's paranoia about her coffee being posioned with Dora's Demon Juice, except that the demons also killed Dora which is when it stopped making sense.

I think the awkwardness is (mostly) out of the way, but that was my initial reaction.

Hmm no.

I think Fayes skill at sass is what attracted him.

Along with being thrown across a bar?  Remember, sass is verbal abuse, unless consentual.  And it never is, at first! 

Quote

Yes.  Why else put up with all her sass?  Unless, maybe he was enjoying it

Really, though - I'm just playing devil's advocate here.  I doubt Angus is that much of a masochist.  He found someone he liked, based on what he saw behind the sass, and there were barriers, and he conquered them with patience and persistance. 

How many of us can say the same?  It's admirable, if it weren't for the "never take no for an answer" aspect of it.  I think that may be part of what others find creepy about him.

Actually, Angus knows when to take 'no' as an answer when Faye expresses herself directly and honestly. He turns things down considerably after that. Yes, he's still around, but in a much more low-key way.

My guess is that before that, Faye was so over-the-top it was hard to know whether she was serious or not.

I could have sworn that Jeph had something like panel 5 he did previously, that look on Dora's face in particular seems really familiar.

I did look at this right before bed though, so it probably got confused somehow that way.

Well, I'm glad he went the Pintsize and Winslow route instead of a Super Late Comic like it looked like on Twitter it'd be.

I agree with Pintsize. A sexy robotic elohim sure would liven things up.  :-D

...*facepalm* I can only respond with two words:

GOOGLE IT


Seriously guys...  :cry: When you've looked it up and come back, then we'll talk.

And no, no one tell them. If they can't make that minuscule effort they don't need to know.

This.


Seriously, there's this information superhighway complete with a whole series of tubes, and I'm pretty sure everyone on here has access to it.





but no, it's so much more satisfying to display you're ignorance and self-importance by getting all butt-hurt because you didn't get the joke.

Yesterday, Yog Saggoth; today Shinji, Rei, and Asuka.


Wait, that's instrumentality. Human, even.

What the hell. Oh, come sweet death (or something like that).

Yeah. I know what the Singularity is of course, but I had to google (and wikipedia) elohim. A Hebrew word for god apparently. Eh? I still don't think I'm getting the joke.

A joke that requires an encyclopaedia to understand, is arguably less successful than one that tickles the funny-bone immediately. XKCD walks this tightrope every strip, but I find it more accessible than today's QC, having studied more mathematics and science than Hebrew.

Yeah, I really didn't even LQTM. 

I read it... and nothing.  So I looked up "the singularity" theory... and I guess if you're really into hardcore science-fiction it means something?  I dunno.  I'm only into sci-fi melodrama (Star Trek, Star Wars), so I guess I don't count.  I don't even really "The Singularity" as being possible - but I'm sure I'm thinking about it too much, so I shan't go on about it.

But yeah, the only thing I found humorous was Winslow's nonplussed reaction to such a momentous event.

And the purposeful misspelling?  Can someone explain that?  I'm honestly just stumped about the whole thing, as this THE FIRST qc comic that I really just don't get, not even a little bit.

WELL anyway, it's only one comic, life goes on.
