And then Clinton stops by the Secret Bakery after his date with Emily where Elliot is gushing over the nice tall dark haired girl that was working today when he dropped off the baked goods delivery....

Yeah, dating is one of those areas where having too many options can be almost as bad as having none at all. And signs are that he’s about to be deluged with options.

I don't know, I'm not very good at this...
To be fair, neither is Clinton.

I wish I'd started with my schools' drama programs far earlier in life. It just wasn't something valued by my folks, so I ignored it. When I decided that I was interested after all, man, the culture shock was something else. It's something I made sure to promote with my own kids - even if it wasn't 'for' them, the exposure to the possibility was worth it.

Welcome, new person!

Ah, themed summer camps. I went to one annually for almost 10 years. Of course, it was run by the Army National Guard  :evil: 

OTOH it was 2 weeks a summer of running around shooting stuff and blowing stuff up :D

Yaaay, Emily!!

I'm sorry, I'm kind of surprised that Emily isn't already working for Dr. Ellicott-Chatham on his space station.  Or on her own space station.  I mean, every thing she comes up with is revolutionary ... and every second thing she comes up with must be covered up by the government.  The girl is either a bona-fide Evil Genius TM or a nexus of intelligent mayhem and chaos.  Or both.

I went to a summer camp for LGBTQ+ youth. Lots of relationships forming/expanding/exploding at that place. I was never in one, but I loved the place. I also was on staff for a summer, and yo, there are definitely efforts in place to make sure no one is getting laid. And yet...

I don't recall whether Hanners has ever personally observed Emily's potential. I imagine if she realized that Emily can think up those complex algorithms almost by accident, she would be glad to recommend a job with her father. Clinton, of course, knows about her programming ability, so maybe it will come up in conversation sometime with Hanners.

Honestly, I always figured she wasn't up there because she was deemed a safety risk. Clinton specifically said that the government had to nuke one of her school projects, and she made a laptop's screen glow with Eldritch runes.

OK, yeah, the Eldritch runes might be cause for concern, but this is Massachusetts. And somebody has to dream up the stuff that is more advanced, or even the government could never progress. It seems to me the station would be the best place for her, since they’re kind of outside the mainstream. They develop stuff that is years ahead of anything that is currently in use. She may not technically be “supervised” any better, but at least she wouldn’t be in a college lab. The government gets kind of antsy about kids at a college doing that kind of stuff.

If students at a very strict Baptist university could figure out back in the 1980s how to have actual intercourse for several weeks in the student center in broad daylight, then there is nothing I could find hard to believe any more. (No, I was not one of said students - too bad, too, because I had some hot classmates - but I did work at the student center at the time, so I got to hear all about it when they finally got caught.)

Apparently, it involves a LOT of Viagra. Maybe they were a test group before it was officially released to the public. Like I said, I wasn't one of them.

All this talk of summer camps - I heard of such things and saw them in movies but they just didn't exist in my world as a kid.
The closest I ever got was camping  with the Family in the early years [was cheaper then a motel according to dad and less bugs]
Latter on it was treks with fellow scouts out in the wilderness doing all sorts of woodcraft or just going from point A to point B without the loss of limb or members of the group along the way.[though we tried]

There was probably a lot less chance of getting laid or getting high on your scout trips, but you probably also learned more.

I just realize that comic 3717 implies that Elliott plays some kind of string instrument and seems to have a record player.

So, I really hope he somehow ends up joining Marten's band and we get to see more of him :)
