On the tangent of Bubbles as a drummer .... Hmmm. And again hmmmm.

She has demonstrated mechanical skills
Has admitted to technical prowess and speed disassembling tactical ordinance.
Definitely has a creative side brought forth via Tea appreciation.

So yeah, she should be able to pull off the technical side with a little instruction and some practice.
The kicker  :claireface: is how she will be able to add creativity to the banging of the drums

My first thought was "would the drums survive her adding creativity to the banging of the drums."  I see Hedgie is thinking along the same lines.

Often compounded by folks like me who just warp right through and land the 10-year job by power-driving through their very first interview.

Actual mileage may vary -- while I got all that right away I struggled in later stages of may career after being laid off... so there you go.   It all works out in the end.

Well he should feel bad about it, there doesn't seem to be any physical reason why Marten is so feeble so why not do something about it

Anyone here who reads Cyanide & Happiness Comics as well? they just Wednesday made a pun on Babality, which is the title of Fridays QC. Do you think that is random, or is there some background for them to be inspired to the same pun? Maybe Jeph reads C&H and copied it? Doesn't he usually have a bigger backlog than 2 days?

I think its just a joke that Marten is weak enough that he could lose to a baby, nothing more, nothing less.

To be honest, I don't see Bubbles as a drummer. More like either violin, or Saxophone. As for the latter, she might have crumpled one or five in frustration.

I reckon she'd make a better violist than violinist - a lot of the violists I knew in school orchestra were former violinists who found they were too broad-shouldered for the violin.

Plus it would be amusing to see the result of someone trying to make a viola joke in her presence.

If you replace the highlighted text in the snippet with "until 'smart' didn't cut it anymore" or "until they had to learn how to learn" I'm on board. For me it was first year university when I went from a highschool average of 90% to being disbarred. It wasn't that I couldn't do 4D vector calculus - it was that I had no idea how to learn how to do it, or how to ask for help to figure out how to do it.

Also it's specifically worth noting that Bubbles has a Claire Threat Evaluation Protocol, that would likely be utilized...

"Babality"is a finishing move in Mortal Kombat 3 or sum shit. Instead of ripping out your opponent's spine, or turning into a dragon and flambèing them, you magically turn them into an infant.
