Roko should become manager of the new, more-or-less legal Robot Fight Club.

As a former police officer, Roko is probably qualified for security-related positions. Perhaps she could get a security job at a particular bar frequented by the cast, working alongside someone with human abs and access to bread...

If Basilisk has been troubled by the ethics of working for the police because there are too many bad cops, moving to the private security industry, which this side of the pond at least has a worse rep, does not seem like a smart move.

So, it occurs to me, May wants a boob job, Pintsize is getting a phallus, they've already got a reputation for sprays. Robot cosmetic surgery seems like a good direction for Union Robotics ..

May's a pretty lousy criminal if she believes a cop who says she's quit, even if we're supposed to.  There's a reason the Hells' Angels won't take anyone who's even applied.

Well after that bomb rack set up May started Roko proves she can set up jokes too. 

Although Roko has strong ethics I think she’s better off getting a law degree than getting into social work.  The only other lawyer in town is HAL Goodbot so someone like Roko is needed.

Since May brings it up: Her original plan does not make much sense, does it?
I mean, you're a fighter jet now. Go forth and blow stuff up.
Then what?

A jet needs a lot of maintenance, fuel, missiles and ammo (plus chaff and flares, if you don't like being shot at). Also, you cannot land and take off just anywhere you please, even if your jet happens to be a VTOL. It's not like you can hide very well, if your body is literally the size (and shape) of an airplane. This whole idea takes a lot of black market contacts and a steady flow of cash into the right pockets to pull off. Not to mention that, as soon as you start wreaking havoc anywhere, the military will hunt you with everything they've got.

After that, if May's mind survives being shot down, it's off to AI-Guantanamo for her.

So, I'd like to know what the next step of May's plan was, after acquiring the fighter jet chassis.
I don't think she'd be having as much fun as she's imagining…

As someone who struggles with impulse control issues, I am fairly certain May had no long term goal. You are correct that it would not have worked out as well as she is imagining here.

Today's strip is particularly interesting in that it suggests that pre-jail May may not have been a particularly nice person. Just think what her 'long-term goal' really entailed. Now, May doesn't strike me as homicidal but you do have to wonder if she used to have serious problems with empathy and understanding consequences as well as problems with impulse control that put her on one kind of behavioural disorder spectrum or another! That's pretty much the only way I can interpret blowing up things (and people) as 'fun'!

All this aside, May's sharp tongue means that, yes, she has earned and deserved many a burn. However, I also suspect that Roko was right that May as we see her is, given everything we increasingly know about her, the best version of her we could hope to see!

Since May brings it up: Her original plan does not make much sense, does it?

I mean, you're a fighter jet now. Go forth and blow stuff up.

I'm pretty sure she was looking to become an AI mercenary. "You guys want an air force then I'm your girl! Supply ammo, fuel and parts and I can blow up any shit you want blown up!" No, I don't think that she thought this through longer-term but, as several have noted, this is a reasonably-predictable symptom of her behavioural issues.

A long term on-again-off-again romance with Clinton.  She secretly thinks he's hot but hates fools, and Clinton is absolutely capable of playing one.  Eventually they can settle down, but not before Jeph gets at least a couple years out of their courting (and mating) antics.

It's plainly not just about possible "few bad cops" - it's also about being part of a system that does not, in fact, rehabilitate - that is designed to do nothing but punish, and continue punishing long after the court-mandated punishment is over. As she has made clear.

Her question was something like "What good am I doing?".

Hey, why was she in the AI crimes division? Except for undercover work, what legitimate reason is there to assign a robot to the robot section? I suspect stereotyping or segregation.  (Or coincidence).

Come to think of it, why is there an AI crimes division? Synthetics and organics are legally equal. Subject to the same laws, they commit the same crimes. Is her section a leftover from the pre-ERA days, its entire existence tainted by racism?

How TF do you screw up rice? It's super-easy. First, soak for half an hour, 2 cups of water per cup of white rice, three cups if you have brown or sweet/glutinous/sushi rice. Stir ONCE. Simmer on medium heat, with the lid slightly off-set. RESIST THE URGE TO STIR. If you run out of water before you reach desired tenderness, drizzle in more water. Serve with whatever the fuck you want. I've seen mayo, ketchup, soy sauce, fish flakes, seaweed flakes, in a taco, in a burrito, in a sushi, milk, in a shake, and probably more in the replies.

It's a carbohydrate. You eat it.

Soak, stir, simmer... realize you have something you need to do and go do it while you're waiting to help resist the urge to stir, that leads to something else to do, next thing you know half your house is filled with smoke and your rice and pan are both ruined.

No, this isn't personal experience, why do you ask?

I doubt she had a plan beyond 'get jet body'. However, the Pentagon has over $9 Trillion in unaccounted spending, so I'd be willing to bet that if she didn't go to AI Guantanamo, she'd get lead around by the nose by some 'generous donors' and be used as a boogeyman.

Dale and Marigold getting distracted - yeah I can definitely see that happening, but I was under the impression that Momo (at least) had some cooking skills... Maybe she only came in at the end - in time to put out the fire but not early enough to stop it starting?

Also - soaking rice before cooking is surely not necessary. I just chuck it in the rice cooker with just over 1.5x the water for white or just over 2x the water for brown and it comes out fine. The hardest part is remembering to switch the rice cooker on. (And yes I have forgotten that part... More than once even!  :roll:)

Hem. I used to know someone who was convinced the only right way of cooking rice, was to parch it in a hot pan. Just the rice, nothing added. And she wondered how come her husband never was hungry when he came home from work.

This is, of course, an archetypal ,'Noodle Incident', right down to the importance that Jeph never tell the whole story. It will always be funniest in our heads and no official canon can ever compare! That aside, I think that this misadventure will cement in Momo and May's minds that they simply cannot leave Dale and Marigold unattended for too long!

Di... did Momo burn off half her hair in a freak rice-addent? D:

Yes, she did and Jeph had better get it fixed soon. I was willing to let him get away with Hannelore and I could just barely handle what he did to Bubbles's beautiful locks but this is a step too far!

It's just a quick trip to Union Robotics. Which might be a good time for May to tell everyone what just happened. That could lead to Bubbles seeking out Roko to talk things over. Though that might be a bit contrived.

Momo means well, but lacks experience, at least in turning written instructions into action, and the resolution to get Dale and Marbear do it differently.

Personally, I don't care much about Hanners' haircut, but I am generally biased towards longer hair.
I suspect JJ trying a different hair style for Momo. And I expect her hair to be growable the way Bubbles' does.

And in the end, it's the characters' choice of haircut, or in other words: what JJ thinks they would do. after all, it's all his choice and not ours.

How do you mess up cooking rice anyway? Short out the rice cooker? cover the microwave dish with aluminium foil? actually getting the dry rice to burn on a gas stove?

... actually the last thing does sound somewhat reasonable, fumbling the rice package, dropping it in the flame. And I consider it a possibility that Marigold has a somewhat messy kitchen, that somehow is a bit more prone to catching fire than a tidy kitchen.

It's a carbohydrate. You eat it.

Ok, that cracked me up.  :laugh:

May's a pretty lousy criminal if she believes a cop who says she's quit, even if we're supposed to.  There's a reason the Hells' Angels won't take anyone who's even applied.

Yes. May is an AWFUL criminal. She's trying to be not-a-criminal-at-all at this point.

But also, there's a world of difference between taking someone at their word, and having taken them at their word, taking them into your confidence and revealing your plan to SHOW THEM, SHOW THEM ALL!

I messed up cooking rice once. I tried making it in a steam oven. Steam is water so that should work or so I thought. The rice just ended up being harder and browner than before.

I've heard the expression "steamed rice" before. but i guess that works differently.
