Where can I sign up for Full Contact Bridge? Yeah. You're permitted to Gibbs-slap your partner for trumping your ace lead.

I thought that was when you body-checked. 
Body checking is used against an opponent to prevent losing a slam.

So brutal! However, asking the butler (or a waiter) to bring a set of thumbscrews is quite the accepted response to such atrocities committed at the green baize.
Thumbscrews? How medival can you get? A pair of Vice Grip brand pliers is so much easier to handle. Actually, only the referee can order such penalties because they slow the game down.

The best players disable an opponent's cards through subtle use of the flame thrower.

Uuuuuh ... "just a hand" ?

The hand is about the most complex thing of the human body when it comes to mechanical finesse ... the arm part would be pretty trivial in comparison.
But it's just a hand.  I use my arm for more things than I use my hand for.

As for the rest, yes, it's nice to see Marten grow some man parts.  A Year-Ago-Marten would've just facepalmed and said, "Goddamn it, Clinton."
Just a note: no hand = no ability to facepalm.

Also, I'd really love to see how you're typing the above with only your arm. At any rate, for most people the arm is mainly a jointed stick used to move the hand around. Having an arm without a hand is similar to having a construction crane that ends with the boom; it may wave about impressively, and can be used to shove and/or clobber things, but that's about it. That's not to say the hand is much good without the arm, either. Personally, I feel I need both. YMMV

Also, thanks to all for the support of my point: the man who solved (or at least mitigated) global warming and world hunger and got their silly asses properly into space is most impressive, given RhD's (No longer RaD, alas) emphasis, for making a robotic rodent. Clinton, you zany freako, maybe you need beheading so you can finish putting your head where you've already tried to lodge it.

(And yeah, I realize there may be applications—perhaps robot hamsters scurry around the conduits of space stations, making repairs and cleaning before coming back to gnaw cage bars and run on wheels. Still…)

I doubt it. She's joked about that kind of thing many times.

Something about the multiple ear piercings being an antenna cought {Reven or Penelopie or Cosete?} off balance one time.

Anybody got the strip #?

And,  of the robots, Tom Servo (the name here a reference to Clinton's mech. hand) was the stupid, obnoxious one.

Nope, actually Tom Servo was the more erudite of the bunch as well as less obnoxious than Crow T. Robot.  If I had to draw bot parallels from MST3K and QC, I'd say that Tom was more like Winslow and Crow was more like Pintsize.  There were 2 other bots (the camera bot and Gypsy), but they weren't generally among the commenting-on-the-horrible-movie folk.  Gypsy was usually portrayed as very dumb, but it was revealed (Spoiler?) that she was actually the smartest of them all, she just usually focused most of her intelligence on running the ship/satellite. 

Picturing Hanners' spacehome as the SoL makes me picture her Dad as Dr. Forrester -- which is funny, but I home their relationship isn't that adversarial.  I prefer to imagine HannerDad as being more like Professor Membrane from Invader Zim.

Other than the having-a-robot-hand aspect of Clinton, Marten may have called him Tom Servo because Tom's chassis was red.   :wink:

hm now that you mention it, Marten and Mike Nelson are kinda similar; playin the straight man to the antics of crazy friends, often at his expense. I like to think Marten's a little smoother than Mike though lol

Can't be a Chekov's sword, since it's already being used to threaten Clinton. It was a Chekov object when Faye was fiddling with it a few strips back.

Edit: it just occurred to me that may be exactly what you meant. If so, apologies for the slow uptake.

The Tom Servo bit and Movie Sign are references to Mystery Science Theater 3000. It's, er, tough to explain if you don't already know it... But suffice it to say there were robots, who were occasionally forced (with their human companion) to watch terrible movies, which they mocked mercilessly (that last being the point of the whole affair). The lighting of the Movie Sign meant this was about to occur. It involved lots of running around screaming and flailing, for whatever reason. The framing for that show was weird.

The lighting of the Movie Sign was the "call to instant action" alert, because if the characters failed to rush to the cinema to watch the bad movies, the mad scientists who kept the hero imprisoned on the space-station would punish them by shutting off the oxygen supply, electric shocks etc. Honestly people, I've never even seen MST3K but I can use Wikipedia...

Moment of the strip, if not moment of the week, is definitely: "He invented the robot hamster!" JE-C is revered by real hamsters everywhere for saving them from lifetimes of cages, running in wheels, neglect by their owners etc. Most entertaining to see Marten about to go Conan (the barbarian, not O'Brien) on Clinton. Typing that, I had a weird flash of Marten wearing a loincloth, and Hanners in that Valkyrie outfit Sandahl Bergman wore at the end of the movie...

Except photovoltaic  would use electricity - so it would be an android's solar powered pigment change, making them appear to tan like a person.
There's Jeph's sillyness. Why would that be an enhancement to a human?

it sounds like part of a possible treatment for albinism, but it could also potentially be used to power other mechanical enhancements.


Go Marten! 

Remember as you swing, get you hips behind it to increase power, and aim for the gut.  The neck (with the spine) is actually remarkably difficult to cut through, needing a hit in just the right spot to avoid getting the blade caught and possibly broken, the ribcage is just asking to catch and hold the blade, while the gut is remarkably unprotected and very vulnerable.  The other option is to try and hit the inside of the thigh to cut the femoral artery, or go go for the calf and try to get the tendons.

What?  I man has to have some form of hobby.

you don't need full decapitation to take a guy out. the jugular and carotid are close enough to the skin that as long as you make contact good and hard with the side of the neck, he's going down. getting you're blade stuck in a vertebrae is only a major problem if you're dealing with more than one guy.

Well, you did   tell everyone that it would be OK to flame you.  And TheEvilDog has a good point - if you use the "new" button, you'll be able to read the posts you missed and actually follow the thread of the conversation!

Oh, and I forgot to make the obligatory comment about Marten's development. How far our little prince has come.

I agree 100% with what BoDJangles wrote... I thinkthe tag "creepy" is overused. C'mon, is he REALLY creepy?

If there's someone that has to be called creepy it should be Hannelore.

Dammit, I was hoping Marten would chop off Cinton's robot hand in righteous combat, grow a beard and muscles, and go off on a sword and sorcery adventure to become king of his own lands.

Guess we can't all have what we want.  :oops:

Since someone must do it, I shall take on the burden.

How hard would you have lasered him, Hanners?

Answer: so hard his new nickname would be 'Crispy.'

(I'm sure, of course, someone can do better)

Agree with BoDJangles and Mr.Doctor. Nothing says that Clinton's a bad guy. He was just oblivious to Hannelore's distress in his excitement. I have probably done something disturbingly similar in my youth, when my own excitement prevented me from noticing other people's total lack of interest.

Or may be that is the definition of `creepy'?

Clinton's just a hyper little fella. I still like him.

And you'd be hard pressed to find anything Hannelore does genuinely creepy. Just look at her. I'd let her get away with anything short of murder.

I seem to recall somebody (Steve?) mentioning that Marten bought that broadsword back in high school many panels ago.

Anyone up for an archeological dig in the archives?

Y'know, while I still maintain that this was a platonic moment between Hannelore and Marten and that they have more of a brother-sister relationship, I do wonder how the rest of the cast would view it.  I mean, at the risk of beating a dead plot-horse, if Hanners were to mention at work tomorrow how Clinton creeped her out and Marten basically strongarmed him off by threatening him with a sword and ordering him to "Get the hell out!" of the apartment... well, I just wonder, is all.
Not that I think for a moment Dora would have any suspicion of Hannelore having designs on Marten, or vice-versa, but her reaction to hearing about her ex-boyfriend being all white-knight-y for Hanners might be interesting.  Or tragic, either way.

Why? Hanners has never shown any interest in politics. Nor, I think, has QC generally.

How hard would you have lasered him, Hanners?
So hard he'd have been blasted back in time to when references to Bill and Hillary were still interesting.

I think Hanners with Cyclops' powers would be an . . . . . .  Interesting  thing.

And dammit, I wanted to see Marten cleaning blood off the Broadsword,

I could actually see Dora, "Wait..what" Cue a bunch of panels of Faye and Hannelore trying to smooth things over thinking that Dora is going to react to Marten being a white knight negatively, or maybe making a somewhat harsher comment depending and then have Dora, "No, no, I meant more, He has a broadsword? Why did I never see it?"

Did you yell "Oh my God, can I touch you" at a woman you'd just met? Would you continue to yell personal questions at her about 6 inches from her face when she looked terrified (look at Hanners' face in the penultimate panel of 1902)? Seems pretty creepy to me.


Exactly.
