Also...Momo, you know there are more places than just Coffee of Doom to work, right?

Is there still an opening at the bookstore where Penny used to work?

And let her get ogled by a creepy manager? Ew...
Haha a machine getting OGLED ? LOL. All thats sweet lovely plastic and metal ... LOL.

As opposed to being attracted to walking meatsacks. Consistency of an uncooked steak. Constantly producing unsightly emissions. Covered in an epidermis that's in a constant state of death, imperceptibly shedding biomatter at all times. Bloated with fluids to the point of being approximately ninety percent water. Countless chemical reactions occurring within at any moment always causing the overall form to shift and alter itself. Aging at such a rate as to be measurable, inexorably visibly edging closer to the abyss so as to remind you of its' nonpermanence. Not to mention completely unsanitary to the point of actually being an ideal habitat for many bacterium.

Yeah. You'd have to be a real freak to be into those plastics and metals. It's all about the fluids and meats.

The now infamous #1658 aside, I don't see how Momo could be in any kind of non-creepy romantic relationship with a human. As has been pointed out, she seems about as vulnerable and insecure as Hanners minus the physical contact phobia. Also, the slim figure and ill-fitting clothes might cause this, but Momo's chassis sort of looks young enough to induce Squick. Definitely young enough for Faye to call her "kiddo". So yeah, those ships aren't sailing anywhere, I think.

Edit: On the other hand, the idea of less intimate relationships involving her is not so much creepy as warm-fuzzies-inducing. +1 for more Momo-hugs all around.

I'm pretty sure Momo was mostly joking with her comment about people having a tragic accident.

Or she's been around Hannelore too long.

My thought was, she's in Marty and Faye's apartment, so that means she's within WiFi range of Pintsize...
I made the same mistake about the location, until I checked the pictures hanging on the walls.

Free reign, while still wrong, at least makes some sense (the synonyms "unrestricted rule" would fit the meaning just fine). "Shoe-in" and "vocal chord" make me cringe. Also, Syfy should be a channel, nothing more. I hate seeing the widespread decline of my native tongue. I blame America. I hate seeing the widespread decline of my native country. Still, another part of me is interested to see what English looks like in 300 years. It's too bad I won't be around for that.

Well, languages evolve.
I think it's healthy, that research communities try to guard and foster that process.

Trust me, you don't want to see the government being involved in this.  That's not only ugly to look at, it also leads to non-working "solutions" (or the "legally permitted" absence of solutions, which is far worse).

Apparently "free reign" is so common it's now an acceptable alternative, like "shoe-in" and "vocal chord" (if this is to be believed).
Well I'm usually careful about things like this and I guess I always thought it WAS "free reign" like a king who is free to do whatever he wants!  I guess I learned something new today. :-) And am with 46% of Americans....

Also do all AnthroPCs not use abbreviations?  I haven't been paying attention, but if they're like Data I guess it makes sense!

May be Tai has been proven to be worthy of their trust? Hmm. I have always felt that Tai would be in grad school. She was at least TAing at some point, wasn't she?

What on earth makes you think Tai would be a graduate student? :psyduck: She's so obviously an undergrad in her characterization. She's easily the most impulsive character, who among the others thinks least about the long-term consequences of her actions. These are not grad student traits.

archive divers, maybe you can back me up on this, but I'm fairly certain Tai once identified as male, so I doubt she has any kind of esteem issues related to her small chest. In fact, she might even minimize its appearance on purpose.

TAs are undergrads. Graduate Assistants (GAs) are graduates. That's how I put myself through grad school.

I believe you, of course, but when I was in grad school, we were assigned to TA duty. I guess there is some variation on the terminology.

That's a definition not everyone seems to use. For example, Jorge Cham calls grad students TAs too. Since the "T" stands for Teaching, there's probably no real distinction in the term. I've been a TA regularly a an undergrad; when I'm done next year I plan to continue that as a grad student.

Tai on androgyny

She passed as male but didn't identify as male.

Wait, didn't Tai hire Maten because he knew what some obscure algorithm was slapped onto the application?

Close. He noticed the application was in iambic pentameter, said as much, and was hired on the spot as a result.

On the downside Marten may be reduced to a lowly shelver.

Isn't that already what he does? 
Oh, hello, Mr. Tibetan Monk. Please leave your misogyny and bigottery elsewhere.

OK, please  thnk twice before calling someone names, like misogynist or bigot. 

Especially when they were just making fun of your meat-based bias! 
Yeah I'm really sorry about that, that was a bad idea.

To clarify, here's the comic in question, after fifteen minutes worth of searching and possible emoticon melting.

Marten comes in, looks a bit forlorn. Our intro to Tai develops over the next several pages. He is hired on the spot due to his recognizing that the application was written in iambic pentameter.

Also...Momo, you know there are more places than just Coffee of Doom to work, right?

Is there still an opening at the bookstore where Penny used to work?

And let her get ogled by a creepy manager? Ew...
Haha a machine getting OGLED ? LOL. All thats sweet lovely plastic and metal ... LOL.

As opposed to being attracted to walking meatsacks. Consistency of an uncooked steak. Constantly producing unsightly emissions. Covered in an epidermis that's in a constant state of death, imperceptibly shedding biomatter at all times. Bloated with fluids to the point of being approximately ninety percent water. Countless chemical reactions occurring within at any moment always causing the overall form to shift and alter itself. Aging at such a rate as to be measurable, inexorably visibly edging closer to the abyss so as to remind you of its' nonpermanence. Not to mention completely unsanitary to the point of actually being an ideal habitat for many bacterium.

Yeah. You'd have to be a real freak to be into those plastics and metals. It's all about the fluids and meats.

Daaaamn, is anyone else as turned on as I am?

Drive-thru, donut, Syfy...

 :lol:
NO
BAD >:(

(I should probably finish reading the whole thread before I comment, hurr

d'aw poor Winslow  :|

I too am curious about what these "samples" could possibly be. And whether or not it's safe for Marigold to sit on that couch after that test tube spilled on it.

1: Is it just me, or is the art style slightly different?

2: What the heck was in that test tube and now is all over the couch?

A green, clear liquid with which Winslow would have had access to... My guess is Hannelore's 'special brand' of homemade cleaning product.
