Wow. That is a terrifying thing.

I am now having (not so fond) memories of my first alarm clock. The one on the left.
"Whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo, are ya ready for some bouncin'?" Needless to say, I never was.

These guys, though. I'm not saying I could stand them in person. But that pose in panel 4!  :-)

also, how strong a barricade is the counter? if most of the shop has disintegrated (including the espresso machine) why is the counter unaffected? is it made of granite?
The counter is made of the special wood used to build shacks in the Old West. You know the ones, with boards so thin that you could practically see daylight through them, and yet the people outside would carefully aim at the windows because they knew their bullets could not pierce... hollywood.

I don't know enough about guns or bazookas to comment much on Faye and Dora's choices, but I'd prefer a Type-56 rifle to that P90. It's in my blood... ;)

And I think the psychological effects of long-term space-station life could require some investigation. Possibly if the station's doctor was a little more concerned with health, and a little less with lasers. My favourite SF doctor is still Dr. Lazarus from Outland.

Why stop at an M-134? Too hard to store a GAU-8 behind the counter?
Since it would BE the counter, yes.

It probably rises out of a hole in the floor on the hydraulic mount they used to have on the sofa.

hard vs soft cover. hard cover is a barrier that will stop a projectile outright, whereas soft cover may slow or deflect projectiles, but mainly serves to conceal you from the attacker. therefor, wooden desk/old west shack = soft cover. the idea being mostly that the attacker can't aim directly at you. not much good against high capacity automatic weapons, but better than nothing.

also, the type-56 is pretty much an exact copy of the good 'ol kalashnikov, meaning it's a good rifle, but more russian than chinese. might i suggest a type-95 or type-03 instead? they're chinese originals.




i take it they don't get many guests up in station.

For comic #2127...

1. Musical space scientists.  Questionable Content has come a long way from a couple of young indie adults hanging around bars and coffee shops.

2. Loved Marten's look in panel #2.

3. Singing and dancing numbers are a lost and underappreciated art in current culture :cry: .

4. Panels #2 through #4 were laugh-out-loud funny, but panel #4 definitely is the best.

5. It just occurred to me with this strip, and having checked backwards some too, Marten seems to have lost the bags under his eyes?  Marten had been carrying those for a while even after he and Dora mended fences at the Tai's college party and even during his time with Padma.

6. Also... Good Morning!  (Cannot believe no one referenced/linked it before me ;) )

Unfortunately in Canada these days most people will associate that tune with the erectile disfunction drug Cialis, as it was used in an ad campaign for the product.

So, is Marigold upset, or laughing her head off under the covers?  I would imagine her music diet consists primarily of anime theme songs and the background music to first person shooters.

So if Jeph is a musician and he writes lyrics WHEN DO WE GET THE TRACK?

Cue the space geeks on how hard it is breed PIGS IN SPACE for livestock. I would imagine a zero-G butchering would be more disgusting than a normal slaughterhouse.

Oh, give them a break :-)

This is surely just their idea of: a warm welcome/a way of breaking the ice/getting to know the newcomers/whatever.

But there is also that a long stint on an isolated space station, while professionally fruitful, brings out the inner jester in some people ...

I think that Marigold is not laughing but groaning - she doesn't strike me as a "morning person."
And definitely not a "I like to be woken up by people cheerily singing at me every morning person."

That said, the first couple of times I looked at the comic I thought that her hand was a really awkward drawing of a foot and she had ended up sleeping head-to-foot on the bed somehow.
