Clearly this is why Renee is so mean to Elliot: deep down she knows he's destructive and will only bring doom to those around him.

Well, it looks like we know who Faye and Bubbles' next customer is.

Hope they know how to handle cyborgs.

It's all in the terminology. To me, 'candy' is based around hard, crystallised sugar.

So "candy bars" are not candy to you? Odd.

We don't even use the term 'candy bars' here in the UK. They're usually called 'chocolate bars', even if the main constituent is biscuit or caramel
Weird, 'confection' seems to be an overarching term with candy as a subset of confection along with preserves. Maybe marshmellows fall under a similar subset to preserves and aren't considered candy after all.

Also, the Brits derive their term 'biscuit' from French, whereas Americans derive the term 'cookie' from Dutch. Both refer to the same thing.

Clinton buys new hand - upgrades to a heavy-duty variant: "OK Elliot...NOW let's shake..."

Seriously though - I hate shaking hands! Who else can't tell how much "firmness" you're supposed to put into a handshake?! Too hard, not hard enough...jeez... :-\

General rule I've found is the handshake you give should be as firm as the one you are receiving and the wrist should have a small bit of flexibility, not too locked and not too floppy. Otherwise. Just don't crush the hands of other people.

I presume, when you've never shaken a robot hand before, you go for the firmness you expect a robot hand to appreciate.

Unfortunately, robot hand was more hand than robot.

Hands are stronger than that robot hand.

 Though, actually, now that I think about it, robo-metal seems to be a bit on the destructible side.  EG, pre-metalworking faye putting a dent in Pintsize's chassis, and Marigold doing the same thing.

So that could have been a normal handshake.

Something tells me that Elliot's Id took over here and did things with his body that his Superego wouldn't approve of. Even if Clinton's hand is a cheap aluminium and plastic structure, that was still a remarkable feat of strength! Meanwhile, I think I now know how Brun will be thrown out of the bar: She's going to pick a fight with Elliot about this mishap.

Okay, I predict that, probably some time next week from our perspective, Clinton will go to Union Robotics for a cheap repair; that's how Brun will get talking to Faye and Bubbles about the receptionist job. Meanwhile, I suspect that it will take much effort on Bubbles' part to dissuade Faye from 'upgrading' Robo-hand with such delights as a rotary multi-tool socket in the index finger and a mini-laser in the forefinger.

Wow, yet another thing that that Elliot and I have in common: overestimating the strength of metal.

It looks nice and strong, but the second you apply what seems an ok amount of force, the head of the bolt breaks off, or the casing cracks, or the threads strip out, or you slip on a bit of oil, grab on to a door, and rip the hinges off...

I would suspect that as Clinton's family aint that wealthy, that prosthesis was probably paid by insurance or by themselves. In any case it would be cheaper model. And truth to be said, CS student doesnt need heavy duty or military grade prosthesis. And for comfort it should be as light as real thing(which is quite light). So i would assume, even if it is not total crap-hand, that it indeed is quite easy to destroy(same as our phones, even more expensive ones are quite flimsy, even if they are largely metal).

And yeah he will totally go to UR for repairs. Could this be start of another friendship, rivalry or even hostility? Will Elliot have problems from his employer? After all he damaged patron without him doing anything(except shouting maybe). Will Clinton defend him before his boss? True, its good it is not friday yet.

Hm - one potential problem with taking Clinton's hand to Union Robotics is that it would be classified as a medical prosthesis and therefore subject to FDA regulations. (Yes, I know it's neither a food nor a drug, but the FDA is responsible for medical devices too.) And Faye and Bubbles aren't licensed to work on FDA-regulated products.

@ Zebediah,

That has the feel of something no-one would think of until it was too late to do anything about it. Alternately, Robo-hand could be out-of-warranty, leaving Clinton with no choice but to go to a local chop-shop or go without his dominant hand.

Except Bubbles would probably be aware of such regulations.

As for repair costs, I imagine that Elliot would be decent (and horrified) enough to foot the bill for a repair or replacement. Or who knows, Hanners might step in with a replacement.

Oh yeah, Hanners will step in and after week of truly gruesome comics, QC will be renamed.

Good point with FDA regs. Guess it may be point of few days worth of comic.

They should have just done that medieval viking forearm-gripping thing instead and just avoided touching hands at all. Although Elliott does also have fairly substantial forearms. He would have won that contest too.

Fun fact: One current way to measure records in human hand grip strength is closing a Captains of Crush Grippers No.4 torsion-spring grippers - equivalent to 365 lb of 'force' (*). Average 'western' human male still manages a respectable 110 lb.

Not really a crocodile's jaws, but still quite remarkable for an instrument that can assemble mechanical watches or play a concert piano ...

(*) Imagine here a small, prickly rant about peoples' tendency to 'measure' force in units of mass ...

Meh - first-term school physics stuff, that.  For lasting fun you need to go to the conflict between es and em systems of units (with its ratios based on c2 just to keep the numbers friendly!):

http://info.ee.surrey.ac.uk/Workshop/advice/coils/unit_systems/

My uni physics course changed its electricity teaching from CGI to MKS in the middle of the time I was doing it.  Oh what fun that was!  We all had to go out and buy the new edition of Bleaney and Bleaney.



Trivia I didn't know: designation of the letter c for the speed of light is from the word celerity: quickness, or rapidity of motion. Its Latin root also gives accelerate.

Oh, that's quite simple: For your thesis, choose a theoretical physics supervisor with an "Units are what happens to other people"-attitude.

Is everyone here a physicist?  :-P

I lied when I mentioned my physics course - I actually did Engineering (which kind? you ask - all of them! I reply*), but we shared some lectures with the physicists.  Alongside lectures on the quantum structure of matter, I also had lectures on mixing concrete and designing motorway embankments (what slope is optimal to minimise snow deposits on the carriageway in a blizzard?).  Dimensional analysis in Fluid Dynamics was a personal favourite of mine, alongside Mohr diagrams for graphical analysis of structure deformation.

The fore finger is the same as the index finger (unless each refers to handedness). Would it be more appropriate to put the laser in the middle finger or the thumb?

Computer science with a minor in classical history myself, because I was told it couldn't be done. (Not that it wasn't allowed, just that there was no way I could handle a history course while majoring in computer science. My advisor was an asshole.)

The fore finger is the same as the index finger (unless each refers to handedness). Would it be more appropriate to put the laser in the middle finger or the thumb?

The thumb is where you put the pneumatic hammer. So laser in the middle finger.

Fun fact: One current way to measure records in human hand grip strength is closing a Captains of Crush Grippers No.4 torsion-spring grippers - equivalent to 365 lb of 'force' (*). [...]

(*) Imagine here a small, prickly rant about peoples' tendency to 'measure' force in units of mass ...

Technically, that would be "peoples' tendency to conflate mass and weight", which has resulted in "pound" being considered both a unit of force and a unit of mass, depending on which system you're using. So saying "365 pounds of force" is completely legitimate and you can leave off the sarcasm quotes around "force", TYVM.

I had never noticed this before, but my phone's browser interprets Storel's user text (1-800-SCABIES) as a phone number and tries to call it if you click on it.  :psyduck:

Someone at the Nashville Jail, perhaps.

I'm just a psychology major.

Comic!

Clinton navigated this situation like a champ, despite being drunk! I'm impressed!
Any tension that was expressed in the handshake is certainly gone now.

Cry it out, Elliot. It'll be ok.

Also, Brun seems to be crashing a little bit.

Noooo BSc (comp) would be more precise. :P
My current job title is software engineer, though.
I am definitely not a *computer* engineer.
I don't think anyone *is* a computer engineer. The fact no one has a clue what a computer engineer does was a running joke in my class.
I'm a game developer, though. The degree is just there.

What's the "pretext" you can order for $7.50?

Wow, that was quick. I typed out the post, had a sudden thought that I'd misinterpreted you, deleted it, but apparently not quickly enough.  :lol:

Anyway, comic! I think Clinton and Elliot will be friends, now.

Ha ha. It's hard to read, but I think it says "Pretzel." Is pretzel some kind of pretext? You be the judge.

Eh, $7.50 is a lot to pay for meaning in my life. I think I'll go to CoD and get the serrano mocha instead.
