Rank-induced behavioural correction isn't really the same thing as what Cosette's doing. 

On second thought, it's exactly  the same thing...

OK, on first scan I read that as "Rack-induced". And it made perfect sense.

Sorry, but in my opinion, no matter how "innocent" it may be, flirting is still romantic and you don't do romantic things with people who aren't  your SO.
More accurately, you don't do romantic things with people who aren't your SO. I would class flirting as distinctly sexual rather than romantic - and if you're not comfortable with that then no, your SO shouldn't do it, nor should you.

Many people are comfortable with that, and it's a pleasant outlet for your sexuality that doesn't involve doing anything with someone outside your monogamous relationship. Many other people are comfortable with kissing other people, only kissing people of one sex, oral only, casual relationships only or are happiest in a polyamorous relationship. Every couple has to work out their own comfort level and abide by it.

Also, the idea that Marten is being a bad friend by not lying for Steve is pretty alien to me.

Hang on a mo, has Marten broken BrOmerta? I am disappoint.
Is Marten now, or has he ever been, a bro? Is he subject to the code? Let us not forget that Steve put scorpions in Marten's bed on at least one occasion.

Marten is not now, nor has he ever been, a bro.


He is a goo friend, but he's not going to enable his friend to act like a jerk out of some misplace loyaty to his gender.

Faye would kick his ass if she found out about that. :police:

We haven't seen Dora since before the time jump, so I'm curious to see how she's holding up.

Actually, the strip where Hanners dissects the dude trying to hit on her is a post-time-jump Dora.

Well I don't know where you're putting the time-jump then, because I have it as the transition between 1860 and 1861.

Hanners' hair changes between 1855 and 1856; 1857 is the appearance of Faye's new hair.

Look at the previous comic. Now back to 1856. Now back to 1855, now back to 1856. Sadly, Hannelore's hair can not actually grow that fast, but with Timeskip Super Accelerator tm,  it can look like it has.

Sadly, 1855 isn't 1856.  But if you add an unspecified period of time, 1855 can smell like it's 1856.

Padma is not impresed with Cosette's display of territoriality.

What I would like to see is Dora's reaction if Marten actually did begin to seriously pursue Padma (or anyone else.)

My eyesight ain't what it used to be. Does it say "Less fresh" on that sign on top of a bowl of bagels/donuts/whatever? Apparently Renee isn't allowed to use leftover stuff as ammo the same way Faye does.

Cosette is pointing with her two fingers at her two eyes and then at Padma.

It's a (slightly?) threatening way to let Padma know "I'm watching you!"

I wonder what it is Marten didn't mean to do.  I kind of wonder how this all started.  Did Marten bring this up and Cosette dragged them to TSB?  That would be a bit much for Marten to do.  I mean I understand being mostly passive about it, but it'd be kind of messed up if he went out of his way to get Cosette mad at Steve.

The last two strips seem to come from nowhere.

It reads more like they were following Marten while having their fight and he's just doing his normal walk in the morning going to TSB (his new morning routine). You know, that or he's being really passive-aggressive and intentionally led them there (maybe subconsciously or whatever, that is what the "I didn't mean to..." bit was about, as I take it).

But then, when every single character in the comic is a walking bundle of psychological problems, it gets to be a bit difficult pointing blame at any particular person when bad shit happens.

*sigh*   Cosette got issues...


...but Padma's line was perfect.  Cosette didn't even phase her - she just can't beleive how wrong  she was about Steve! 

I've had that problem - people have a hard time shaking that firat impression, no matter how  wrong it may be! 

And the mathematician in me wants to point out that "She's not  prettier than you!"  is not the same as "You're prettier", but it's not something you should ever  point out to the person who made that assumption!

Who's to say Padma is wrong?  Well, we already have a lesbian character.

Maybe this explains Steve's commitment issues.  He sabotages all his relationships because he keeps pairing up with women when his heart pines for men.

Maybe this whole plot arch is a set up for Steve coming out of the closet.

Marten and Steve mighta been just telling Cosette about their night out when Marten mentioned Steve taking over the conversation and being really friendly with Padma. Or one of them could have mentioned how Padma thought they were gay and when she found out they weren't, she accused him of flirting. From there Cosette could conflate that into 'he was  flirting!' and thus, yesterdays and today's comic.

The random function calls a perl script at ohnorobot.  The script is clearly a very poor random number generator, and it also only delivers comics that ohnorobot has in its archive (which is missing a fair number of QC).  It seems to me that it would be relatively trivial to do a decent random function in Javascript and drop the call to ohnorobot (having said that, I guess I'm duty bound to do it and ask an admin to implement it...).

Code: [Select]

<script language="Javascript">

var latestComic = 1877;
var comicUrl = "http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=";

function loadRandomComic() {
location.href = comicUrl +
Math.floor(Math.random() * (latestComic + 1));
};

</script>

<a href="#" onClick="loadRandomComic()">Random</a>

Err, personally I think its totally fine if you flirt with other people as long as its done jokingly and the other person knows you're in a partnership.

Its however not a nice idea to flirt people who dont know you're in a partnership. You might hurt either their or your partners or even both feelings.

I hereby offer the totally unhelpful postulation that Padma is very pretty and her obvious sanity makes her far prettier than Cossie.

I still want to have Steve and Cossie encounter Meena and David, preferably with Meena either pregnant or nursing a baby. Mostly because I think it's Steve's turn for hella drama and I'd like him to have a bit more of the spotlight...

Cossette is a college kid. She's young. And apparently she has not had the best dating history, as indicated by certain statements she has made.  Jealousy and insecurity are not surprising reactions. I'm a flirter. I flirt without even realizing it most of the time. This has upset some of the girls I have dated. While I am pretty open about these things, I understand why some people are not. While her actions are not justified, her emotional reaction is both justified and understandable.

Also, I do not think Martin is being a bad friend just because he refuses to lie to cover up Steve's behavior. If anything, I think Steve is being a bad friend for putting Martin in that position.

How exactly did Cossette find out about this, anyway? How did she hear about  what was going on that night in a way that made her think Steve was flirting? It's not like either Steve or Marten would have said "heh, hah, I/he was totally hitting on this one chick."  It's like some 4th party gave her a rundown on what happened offscreen.

Also, Marten wasn't bad because he wouldn't lie, he was bad because he waffled. Mmm... waffles.

I don't think that's hypocritical. She blushed when Marten complimented her. Blushing is not a voluntary response. We already know she finds Marten attractive, she asked him out to before Steve, and his complimented flustered her. She believes Steve was actively flirting with Padma. Most people see flirting as an attempt to attach/cement the interest of someone they are attracted to. That's not the same thing as receiving a compliment.

I wasn't even thinking about the blush part... I was thinking about this part of the comic:
Are you telling me you wouldn't be the tiniest bit jealous if they did it right in front of you
No I wouldn't


I can see how it isn't the same thing... But if I were Cosette I would give Steve the benefit of doubt... I don't think he actually meant to flirt with Padma in anyway.

Oh... and Padma looks very cute in the last panel, great job Jeph!

Code: [Select]

<script language="Javascript">

var latestComic = 1877;


There needs to be some kind of call to the website to get the current comic number, otherwise you'll be having to constantly update the code.  Perhaps looking at the top of the archive list?  Or maybe a function that translates the date into a comic number, assuming 5 pages a week...

Then you'd have make sure to use the value (current comic - 1), just in case the comic isn't up at midnight...   :roll:

As far back as Saved By The Bell, at least.

It used  to be called a "Dope Slap", and goes back well beyond the Three Stooges.  Possibly through the middle ages, classical Greece, and into the mists of prehistory. 

As long as people have stupid ideas around those who know better, the Dope Slap will live on!

I think Padma is prettier than Cosette. Perhaps because Cosette's hair/skin combination reminds of a very obnoxious, undesirable girl I know.

Of course, they ARE both just drawings.

There's (ahem) tongue-in cheek flirting as fun banter for it's own sake, and then there's flirting with the idea of leading to something more. As long as all parties know the score and are cool with it, the former can be engaged in without transgressing relationship boundaries.

Cossette is a college kid. She's young. And apparently she has not had the best dating history, as indicated by certain statements she has made.  Jealousy and insecurity are not surprising reactions. I'm a flirter. I flirt without even realizing it most of the time. This has upset some of the girls I have dated. While I am pretty open about these things, I understand why some people are not. While her actions are not justified, her emotional reaction is both justified and understandable.

Also, I do not think Martin is being a bad friend just because he refuses to lie to cover up Steve's behavior. If anything, I think Steve is being a bad friend for putting Martin in that position.

I agree, I'm a very physically affectionate person (I hug a lot, not in a whorish way), and I do tend to warn the people I date that I will cuddle with my friends and that it doesn't constitute flirting. The line between being friendly and being flirty is extremely fine in my opinion (Flailure!). And I think Steve is the kind of person who would flirt without realizing, just because he's charming. However, I still think that Cosette's emotional reaction, while understandable, is not justified. I also do not think youth has anything to with it, I'm in high school and I still find possessiveness annoying in my peers. Cosette is being silly, irrational, jealous and possessive.

Suggestion for a forum nickname for Padma: The Senator.  Why?  People for some reason saw "Padma" and thought "Padmé", the first name of Senator Amidala.  Is it needlessly complicated, and longer than her real name?  Of course.  But hey, this is the forum that argued for a dozen pages on [topic redacted]. :mrgreen:

My guess it after her brief run in with 'Miss Balbricker' Cosette just now, she wonders why Cosette hasn't turned him gay.

Just a guess on my part, but probably close to Padma's thoughts.
