I was sort of wondering how he was going to top the boot on the door and the sound-canceling headphones (Faye/Angus).


Pintsize.

Shuts.

Up.


Never saw THAT coming!

Given the pile of chips, I think Melon must be marking the cards with her teeth or whatever she has there, maybe in Braille.

I'f forgotten about the hats being an Anthro-PC fashion statement.  (What's the difference between a bowler and a derby, anyhow?  I'm more inclined to fedoras and their variants.)  I agree, that's probably not Roko.  Even though Pintsize says he intends to be on his best behavior, he'd have brought a ciabatta just in case (easier to conceal than a baguette).

This strip reinforces one thing - there's an AI social network that isn't always apparent to organics, both in strip and out (that being us).

I don't think there is much difference. I've always thought of a Derby as having a slight 'dent' in the top, and a bowler not having a dent, but google tells me I'm wrong on that front.

If someone says "Bob was wearing a Derby," I think of a slightly more devil-may-care character than someone wearing a bowler. I also think of a Derby as the type of hat that you could potentially tie a cravat around, if you wanted, whereas a bowler hat you would leave well alone, unless you wanted to be arrested by the hat police of late 19th-century Britain. Um, just my impressions. As you may have gathered, I know nothing of hats.

I think what you are thinking of as a Derby is actually a Homburg, the difference between a Bowler and a Derby is the Bowler is British and the Derby is American.

I just googled 'Homburg' and you are exactly right! The hat I thought of as a Derby is actually a Homburg. The most informative article I came across (in my very brief googling) also showed men sitting side by side, wearing basically identical hats. (Without 'dents'). It was the hat I've always thought of as a bowler, but the same hat was described as a Derby in America. Who would've thought hats could be so fascinating ('scuse the pun). I'm not being sarcastic there by the way. It's genuinely interesting stuff. And I learned something today.

IIRC, they can communicate online and probably have a constant "real-life forum" running in their background consciousness.  Or at least, they can.  They can probably log out to avoid trolling, and some may never even establish an account.

Yeah, there's a huge difference between "I met a synthetic person!" and "My dad sent me an empty chassis!"

...It *was* empty, right? Was Mr. E.C. expecting Hanners to date Winslow?

I'm pretty certain that the Robot Boyfriend would have used a simpler, non-sapient operating system with the option of installing an AI, should the need be felt.

Even assuming my own personal theory on the origin of the AIs isn't true, I'm pretty sure Hannerdad saw this sort of thing coming.  :-D

I'll buy that.  I was thinking a bowler if it was on an English banker or butler and a derby if it was on a working class noggin.

I myself wear a Porkpie most of the time and a Trilby occasionally though having wide shoulders I should wear a wider brim hat such as a Fedora but I can't get one locally that I like.

Pintsize claims it’s decorum, but self preservation is most likely.  Faye and Bubbles to be certain, but if Spookybot is playing Cupid you definitely want to avoid screwing with them.

No butler would wear a hat, unless required by the protocol of a specific occasion.

As for a porkpie, I suppose that's one more hat type that I need to educate myself on. I think of a porkpie as a bowler/derby that's been stamped on by someone with an appreciation for symmetry?

... However, she doesn't know that and, indeed, is still trying to work out what the cardboard tiles she's holding are. I suspect that she'll start eating the chips too soon because her research shows that is what one does with chips.
Or maybe she just likes the taste of pasteboard. After all, we did see her eat a cereal box.

My theory is that Melon is an experimental AI model, whose energy source is derived from the chemical breakdown of one of the most bulky forms of waste, namely cardboard packaging....  :-D

Roko's skin is lavender; the purple-haired AI is pink-skinned.  Plus, pretty sure Roko would have let out a shriek on seeing Pintsize.
Also Roko's hair is magenta, not purple.

Somehow it never occurred to me that the dark red unitard thing was actually something Bubs could remove, lol. I mean, she's worn some (questionable-fashion-sense) shorts and stuff over it, but also typically doesn't wear anything over it. Got a question I never knew I had answered.

We knew about Faye's body warmth from Tai. Why does Bubbles stay warm when she's not exercising? Is there a heater she can turn on for situations like helping squadmates with cold weather survival? If so it was a good gesture to turn it on before naked contact with an organic.

It's been addressed in a prior comic (I stink at finding the specific ones). It was when Faye and Bubbles were walking together, and during the course of the conversation Bubbles stated that her only "waste product" was heat.

It's perfectly natural to be curious. I'm curious, too. But I suspect Jeph will treat it much the same as he does Marten and Claire's sex life; the canonical answer is "mind your business". And that's probably for the best.

Well you're going to have some indication of what happened when Marten asks:

Either they blush, talk about emotional intimacy, Bubbles hugs Faye around the shoulders while Faye hugs Bubbles around the waist...

Or booty dancing.

I think this comic handles the topic of physical (and emotional) intimacy exceptionally well!

The Faybles story-arc is one of the, if not THE most satisfying and/or rewarding arc QC has ever had.
In my opinion at least.

I'm willing to bet that everybody is jumping to the wrong conclusion.

Both Faye and Bubbles admitted they had no idea what they were doing.

I bet nothing happened except one big spooning session.

I'm willing to bet that everybody is jumping to the wrong conclusion.

Both Faye and Bubbles admitted they had no idea what they were doing.

I bet nothing happened except one big spooning session.

I am willing to put a significant sum of money that "I have no idea what I'm doing" is the most common thing a person will say before losing their virginity.

With as passionate as they were before leaving Union Robotics I very much doubt all they did was spoon.

The very rude part of me is curious about um...what happened before this pillow talk.

*hides* mods please be gentle.

It's perfectly natural to be curious. I'm curious, too. But I suspect Jeph will treat it much the same as he does Marten and Claire's sex life; the canonical answer is "mind your business". And that's probably for the best.

That's why God invented fanfics.

So Bubbles’s “hip joints” and “arm joints” were just lines in her unitard...


Edit: And also: SQUEEEEEE!

Apparently so.  I thought that the arms and legs could be detached like the head, but apparently Bubbles chassis is one piece.  It seems impractical considering what damage she could sustain even with the armor, but maybe she doesn't need seams.  It's probably an advanced form of robot flesh that can possibly cut into and sealed up without leaving a scar.  If it was like going to bed with a life size Stretch Armstrong Faye wouldn't be glowing that much.

I don't really think anatomy matters.

No, of course, it doesn't...but it could be useful to know what the potential limits to the physicality of the relationship might be.

On a slight tangent, something I've been moved to almost comment on several times of late...has anyone else noticed that, as this arc has developed, Jeph's depiction of Bubs seems to have softened considerably, giving her more noticeably human-like anatomy and characteristics?

The only things I noticed were the hair and facial expressions(mostly blushes), both (I think) could be reasonably accomodated by Bubbles' development post Corpse Witch

I understand the development of a feminine shape to Bubbles, uncanny valley et al. but the presence of anything more detailed than the macro shape worries me.

Naturally the first scientist won.

In support of that, their expressions don't strike me as afterglowish.
