Can't help but think all the "Should she or shouldn't she?" people and "Marten is a (various forms of saying wuss)" people ... Got served today.

Nothing that has happened contradicts the notion of Marten being a wuss, so... you're going to have to explain this one.

A) Happy Birthday.

B) You're not old.  You've got 5 more years until you're old.  At 36 you can legally date women half your age.

Me, I'm really old.  At 42 I can buy them drinks.

And a brief word, from experience... 31 really is very young, but you won't really realise that until you turn 41.

Nothing that has happened contradicts the notion of Marten being a wuss, so... you're going to have to explain this one.

Marten was honest in a nondestructive way about what he thought and felt, faced the reality of not having a say in the matter, and in the end chose, not to sulk, but to reassure Tai of their friendship. That takes no small amount of maturity ... and a spine.

EDIT: Happy Birthday, Jeph.

Maturity yes, but "spine" has no real application at all in the strip you were talking about (in the typical "meeting aggressive behavior head-on and facing it down" meaning, or "fuck you, I'm not going to let you bully me around" sense).

Although one could see it as he had a chance to gloat over Tai being rejected, but chose not to, instead to comfort her. Which shows a certain amount of spinal structure.

Google Translate says "Happy Birthday, Jeff". "Jeff" is capitalized, so Google Translate knew it was a proper name. How do you represent a non-Chinese name in Chinese? If it's phonetic, how did GT know it was a name?

Google Translate says "Happy Birthday, Jeff". "Jeff" is capitalized, so Google Translate knew it was a proper name. How do you represent a non-Chinese name in Chinese? If it's phonetic, how did GT know it was a name?
I don't know about the specific mechanism used by Google Translate (GT), but as I said in a previous post Chinese characters (hanzi) cannot always be read correctly in isolation. The hanzi that make up 杰夫 (Ji​fū) do have a number of individual meanings depending on context but are a combination that GT has obviously been programmed to recognise.

GT does have a huge problem with identifying names in Chinese, but it is, if anything, more a problem with Chinese names (especially surnames) than Western ones. This is because Chinese names are are made up of fewer hanzi than the phonetic representations of Western names, so it is more difficult for GT to pick them out. For example, the Chinese surname 黑 (Hēi) also means "black" or "dark", so GT translates 黑嘉嘉 (Hēi Jiājiā) as "black Jiajia" or sometimes even "black fine" instead of recognising correctly the name of the Australian-born professional weiqi player. Only prominent Chinese people like 周恩来 (Mao Zedong) can count on having the combination of hanzi in their name recognised by GT.

In general terms, Western names are written in hanzi that sound to the Chinese ear like the syllables of the name when spoken aloud. Normally the hanzi for common given names are chosen from among the many homophones in Chinese so that their meaning is somewhat complimentary. For example many hanzi could have been chosen to sound like "Jeff", "Geoff", or "Jeph" but 杰夫 translate as "distinguished man". Less common given names, surnames, and place names are handled more pragmatically:

巴拉克奥巴马 = Bā​lā​k o​bā​mǎ (Barak Obama, remember that ke is pronounced "kuh").
乔治布什 = Qio​zh B​sh (George Bush, remember that Q is pronounced "Ch",  zhi is roughly "juh", and shi is "shuh").
澳大利亚 = o​d​l​y (Australia)

He's not that old, he's still a hexadecimal (i.e. base-16 numbers) teenager.
31 = 16 + 15, so that's written as "1F" in hexadecimal. So he's still "eff-teen". Next year he'll be 32, which is 16+16, so written as 20 in hexadecimal.
