I wonder if there's an alternate universe where the US went with the turkey as the national bird and public support structures exist and we have healthcare for all, and also we eat eagles on some day that doesn't exploit indigenous peoples, and also in this universe's QC today's strip features an eagle espousing eliminating social spending and dumping tons of cash into the military, and also QC is just a comic about crypto tycoons.

From my experience taking pottery classes, things generally cool down in the kiln. If you open the kiln while it's still too hot, you'll ruin the pottery. You can get things the day they come out of the kiln.

ETA: Also, Pintsize should be proud. A jug like that is hard to make.

The worst thermal shock is in the cool down, most low fire clays shatter due to chemical water not being fully cooked out of the crystal and the shrink rate of the clays. There's a lot of high fire clays that can handle hard thermal shock and there's awesome techniques utilizing it like Raku where they take an orange hot glowing piece out of the kiln and huck it into sawdust, straw, newspaper, or any other solid flammable material and cool it down in less than an hour. Fast flame firing and hot handling would also be something robots would probably excel at, and find enjoyable.

As a side note, regarding Robot Dong, we never got to see the finished piece that Faye made for Pintsize.  I hope we get to see that giant veiny metal megarobodongus in all of its cock and balls glory.

They did make that for old-chassis Pintsize, not new-chassis, so the proportions might be off.

Well, proper proportions are in the eye of the beholder ;)

New comic.

Nothing will keep Claire's puns down.

Hey, Marten!

It would be interesting if he DID go for a career, mind you.

So, that's a genuine smile, not an awkward internally panicked smile.

Occasionally, Jeph chooses to remind us just how deeply Marten is in love with Claire. He also reminds us that, no matter how pushy she can be, how in love she is with Marten and how much she admires him.

It took me a moment to get it.  I didn't notice the extra p in "polypamorous" at first.

Has Claire's big on-the-verge-of-laughing-out-loud smile in the last panel made it into the default avatar list yet?


Re: Yesterday's comic.
I'm absolutely with the second turkey in that last panel.

Yeah, "Fresh out of the kiln" is probably an exaggeration for emphasis of how recently it was finished. That said, maybe Pintsize's chassis can tolerate higher heat levels than human skin.

Just one question: Why would anyone want somewhere to store their toenail clippings? I probably don't want to know the answer but it is also something that I kind of would like to have known before I add to a collection of items that I understand can be used in magic.

It also appears to have been glazed or painted.

Sorry for the late reply. This week work was two 12s and a 7 that started 3 hours early. Still recovering from the scheduling nonsense that happened this week. I may need to dust off my resumé. But I finally have time to go through this week's thread.

If you are able to make smile that way your significative other(s), you know you are doing something right.

I wasnt "excited" about female robot parts so why would I give a damn about male robot parts, and I completely dont understand why I'm supposed to care.

I'm a christian, but I dont do christmas shopping. I avoid all christmas consumerism best I can.


Nothing will keep Claire's puns down.
Unfortunately I dont get them, so ...

It would be interesting if he DID go for a career, mind you.
Wouldnt he need an ambition as a foundation for such a career first ?

Other than having success as a musician, there doesnt seem to be too much there.
