Also, there's a theory that humans are all born premature, technically. It's only that the female body can't accommodate the size of the "fully grown" baby at the "proper" "hatching time".

A theory that is quite widely accepted, I may add (BSc in medical biology speaking, MSc is in Neuroscience, so less relevant).
If babies get too large it also causes problems already.

Thank you, science fairy!

My big head apparently caused my mom problems when I was born. But it was only fair, the medication her doctors gave her may have damaged my heart in utero.

Not an expert, but I'm fairly sure acne is mostly caused by an imbalance of hormones, hence why it's worst during puberty, and being sexually active can help balance these hormones, causing a reduction in acne.
Of course this is different from person to person and isn't going to be true for everyone, but there is science behind that 'old wives tale'.

Or Jeph is simply drawing Momo prettier and thus reducing her acne.

Those black dots are on the right side of her face and she’s turned so only her left profile is visible in this strip, however, her hygiene has probably improved since I doubt Dale will do anything extraordinary if she’s too funky.

I wonder how much Jeph has been reading about the criminal justice system in our own world. Ex-cons who could contribute are all too often forbidden to do so. There's no public safety reason to deny a tax cheat a license to cut hair but many places do.

Well, that's the mystery of Pintsize's self-sufficiency solved. A bit like all those RL (possibly fraudulent) jobs you see advertised by spambots, it is possible for AIs to literally be part of the Cloud, using spare processor capacity to do simple stuff for various service providers. It's the equivalent, I suppose, of a job doing image interpretation or proof-reading on-line for money.

That aside, I'm starting to wonder if Robot Jail might be flirting with 'Cruel and Unusual Punishment'. It's clear that the experience was pretty effective at inoculating May to any desire to risk going back, which is a good thing. However, it also seems to have been negative enough that it might have left her with some permanent emotional and mental scars.

Or more simply; more sex means you have to get yourself some projection, and you know the one thing that helps here and is super good at balancing hormones and has side effects of reduced acne? You've guessed it, it's the pil! :P

The hair went from ruly to unruly, fluffy. Makes a lot od difference, as you can see.
I remember Marigold having longer hair. Is this the first iteration of a new haircut, or am I flat out wrong?

That's kind of a pattern with Jeph.  He gets tired of drawing long hair and gives his characters a new 'do.

Went to do a Google search today of Jeff Sessions, typed in "Jeph" without thinking about it.  Google caught it - "Did you mean Jeff Sessions?"  I'm spending too much time in here.

OK, so there must have been a previous conversation off screen between Momo and May when Momo tried to talk about Robot Jail?

May's reaction lines up with what many organic ex-cons are like in our world. There are prison memoirs and prison writers but they're a tiny minority compared to the ones who clam up tight.

The problem is at no time did Marigold ever declare herself an expert on the subject.  May mentioned robot jail and Marigold asked her what it was about it.

No, but she didn't seem to understand why Momo reading about robot jail didn't help her connect with May.  She'd understand that "read about the anime on the wiki" is nowhere near the same as "watched the anime".

This strip reminds us that Marigold really has a lot of social problems including a definite lack of empathy. It isn't malicious but she genuinely doesn't think of other people's feelings when pursuing curiosity or if she wants something. She is even aware of this but only in hindsight and usually only when called out about it. A curious girl.

It is clear to me that robot jail and her experiences therein are going to be a permanent trigger for May but the specific problem here is Momo's tendency to treat her theoretical knowledge and abstract principles as universal absolutes that don't automatically apply to people who have actually lived through the experience. This tripped her up with Bubbles and it seems that it tripped her up with May too. I'm just wondering if she's learning from this or if, to her, it's a frustrating mystery as to why people keep on telling her that her principles, based on the highest academic standards of ethics, are unrealistic!

Marigold's complexion has been improving for a long time now. Her diet is better, now that Momo can prepare food for her, so that helps too.

She's getting more exercise too (vigorous sex with Dale at a rate and intensity that it keeps on driving Momo out of the apartment). That said, as we can see, she still has her distinctive moles on her jawline.

I think Momo's theoretical approach and May's hands on figuring out on the way approach gives those two a certain dynamic, since they're kind of polar opposites, but do not exclude each other if done properly.

Marigold flat out tries to satiate her curiosity, not thinking whether that behaviour may trigger other people. IMHO May has quite a strong reaction to being asked about jail, but that's just her. And Momo never warned Marigold about that, although she knew very well, apparently.

I am reminded of a speech from a certain film...

Quote from: Good Will Hunting
You're an orphan, right? Do you think I'd know the first thing about how hard your life has been, how you feel, who you are, 'cause I read Oliver Twist? Does that encapsulate you? Personally, I don't give a shit about all that, because you know what, I can't learn anything from you I can't read in some fuckin' book. Unless you want to talk about you, who you are. Then I'm fascinated. I'm in. But you don't wanna do that, do you, sport? You're terrified of what you might say.

Is it my imagination, or is Marigold's complexion looking much better?  I mean, is that old wives tale about an active sex life clearing up ones face true?   :-o

Those black dots are on the right side of her face and she’s turned so only her left profile is visible in this strip, however, her hygiene has probably improved since I doubt Dale will do anything extraordinary if she’s too funky.
I always figured those three spots were moles/beauty marks. Sometimes they cluster..

Issue here is may hasn't come to terms with her crimes and punishment.  She has the attitude that the world is unfair and she is being unfairly treated.

I don’t know about that, but I have little patience for her.  She complained about Dale not being around much, but tends to lash out and be abrasive to just about everyone it’s a miracle he puts up with her.

Because she doesn't like to talk about her time in prison? Or because she doesn't feel obliged to talk about subjects she doesn't feel like talking about?

Please highlight where in the comic exact you have picked that perception up.

Can't remember any such instance - though, to be fair, May talks about virtually anything (except Momo, weapons of war - preferable flying ones - and human sexual intercourse) in terms indicating intense loathing, or at least mild distaste & detached amusement, so I might have missed something.

I'd rather say she's annoyed she got caught. If robot jail hasn't changed her as a person, it probably has given her some kind of impulse control she didn't have before. And right now she has to sort herself out.

Where to begin?


Her explanation to dale why she was in robot prison, didn't paint that she regretted her actions at all.

Her job, which she should have treated as repentance she complains about.

She isn't able to afford a new robot body? She thinks that everyone has it better without taking time to learn context. 


She has had redeeming moments which is why we find her interesting

On a politeness level, I request you don't speak for me about why I find any character interesting. For one thing I'm not even a fan of May.

I also have to disagree with the 'should' word here. Repentance? The penal system isn't about repentance, religious or otherwise. She is serving her time. I also see no reason why she has to regret her actions. Regret achieves nothing for the person regretting, particularly when that is regret of a crime.

On the subject of Robot Jail, my speculations have run to the following with equal yet more horrifying levels
  • Isolation in a white space
  • as above but having Customer service rep conversations passed through her "space" with no interaction
  • again as the first but this time it is having all those fraudulent transactions streamed in a continuous loop with the court logs as narrative
  • Isolation in darkness and the only light are the postings in 4chan - yes this is where satan goes potty

A good pun is it's own reword.
There is a difference between spare parts, extra parts and left over parts.

The Venn diagram  for Common Sense and Good Sense has very little, if any, overlap.
