I was going to make some sort of math joke here, but it's Sunday morning and I'm wiped. Here's your first poll of the week.

Engineers extinguish a fire. Physicists calculate the exact amount of water they need to extinguish the fire and use as much. Mathematicians prove that they can extinguish the fire and go back to sleep.

No, we set the dollhouse on fire and put it out, since solving a smaller, simpler problem will allow us to see how to solve the larger one. 

Then we claim a similar method will work, without actually doing it...

hmmm....you know I voted for a second date with Angus and Faye, but reading Faye and Hannelore talk about the singularity, maybe this was Jeph's stealthy was of beginning to take QC in a whole new direction. I mean how long does a singularity take to happen?* Maybe the AI just hasn't enslaved/killed them all yet. Maybe starting this week, a conflict could start between the humans and machines and the rest of the comic is about the QC gang trying to fight the machines and keep Northampton from falling into the hands of the AI!!

Ok, I admit, I just want to see everyone dressed like Rambo and fighting with machine guns.

*before you flame me for sounding like a retard, let me clarify: I'm an Engish major. I know next to nothing about this sciencey-speculation. So if none of the above made ANY sense, keep in mind I have trouble with simple math.

Only thing is that Cosette dyed her hair that shade. Vicky was (apparently) a natural brunette.

Always cool to see one redrawn, and to go back to the archives to look at the original.

So I asked myself, why this one in particular?
I'm pretty sure Jeph didn't do this entirely on purpose (ah, l'inconscient), but did you read the text below the next old comic?

Yeah, we love you too, Jeph.

So how far did you go with the redrawing, Jeph? I mean, the style has evolved pretty organically over the years, so it'd be hard to stop anywhere without it suddenly reverting back to an older style.

For comic "#258" (or #1781)...

1. I highly approve of these "filler" comics.  Not only nostalgic, but also a good long-term investment when enough of them are done.  Could you imagine an entire volume of Questionable Content: the Remastered Edition... :roll: ?  I know I would buy it, as I have Questionable Content: volume 1.

2. Marten's ex-girlfiend (Vicky) does unsettlingly very much look like Cosette when remastered with current art.

3. Ah original Faye when she was scary and protective of Marten and did not use contractions...  I miss that Faye sometimes :-( .

4. I really liked remastered-Faye's expression in Panel #2, even if you had not read #258 before, you can tell just from her facial expression that something is about to go down.

I'm sorry, but what? How was Marten in any way a creep? By moving across the country for someone he loved at the time? Or by putting effort in trying to spend time with her and getting regected for no given reason? Nothing about Martens story shines him in a negative light.

You forgot the part where they broke up before she moved. Marten's evolution from the stereotypical Nice Guy to what he is now in the comic was a very slow process and he's a completely different person today.

Faye's actions in that comic were just as bad, but then, the entire cast back when that happened were a bundle of fucked up people (they're all a bunch of moderately well-adjusted, functional adults now in comparison).

#255 says Vicky wasn't keen on the idea of an LDR.

#257 establishes that the breakup happened after Marten moved.

It also sounds like Vicky did the passive-aggressive "if I ignore him he'll give up and leave" method of breaking up, pretty much a dick move if you ask me.

She said the LDR wouldn't work for her. So Marten decided he'd go with her, in order to NOT make it an LDR.

And yet, she decided it wouldn't work.  Apparently, it was not the distance that was 'too much for her to handle'.
Which indicates that she should've been more up front in the first place. On top of that, Vicky handled this in the worst way possible. Hence the carton of milk.
And honestly, "the entire cast back when that happened" may have been "a bundle of fucked up people", but at least, they're nice to be with.

Exactly. Pretty explicitly hanging out the idea that if Marten was closer, the relationship could continue. She knew he was totally into her, so what did she think a romantic, rather rootless California boy was going to do? And indeed, according to #257 the relationship did continue for a while after Marten moved East.

But lets not go through that whole argument again.
Then why raise it at all?

Ok, I admit, I just want to see everyone dressed like Rambo and fighting with machine guns.

...and as the cast makes their final stand on some godforsaken hilltop, BOOM, a capusle lands, and Hanners' dad comes to the rescue!

That's how it plays out in my head anyways.

Has he been sleeping around because he thinks he doesn't deserve anything better?

I don't think this is it exactly, though it could be part of it. More likely its that through women throwing themselves at him since sexual maturity, he's been led to believe that sex was the most important part of a relationship, and its only recently that he's gotten it into his head that there's a lot more to it than that.

Now that he knows what a dick he's been, NOW he might start sleeping around again because he thinks he doesn't deserve better. He might think about just giving himself up to one-night stands from now on because he thinks that's all he's good for. I really hope Faye and/or Dora convince him to seek actual help or better yet, just try to be a better person.

I don't know why Dr. Corrine isn't interested in the rest of Faye's friends; she could buy a condo in Florida with all the dough she makes off them  :-P

Probably because she knows all the crazies just feed on each other.  It's like making a bed, you need to get one corner of the sheet anchored first.  Spread youself across it trying to tuck in all the corners at once, and it's not going to stay put! 

Besides, she's already dealing with Hannelore, isn't she?  That'll keep her busy enough...

Well, Pournelle stole all his best work from me, but yeah, that's pretty close...
