Um....did Roku just get freaking killed????
Probably not killed. But she may wake up with her chassis replaced by a breadbox.

Hmm. Given her "kink", she might actually like that...

Shouldn't Crushbot insurance have to pay for it? After all just like on the highway orbiting has precedence over de-orbiting.

Like liability insurance for other operators of machines that can cause damage. Mandatory for car owners.

How long has Roko been a former cop?  She might still have her insurance.
When I quit my newspaper job I got to keep my (relatively shitty, but it helped more than it hurt) health insurance for a month.
I have to assume Massachusetts is better than Ohio in that regard, especially if Roko is/was a public employee.

Also, she might get the loan of Momo's old chassis. Or Winslow's.

Roko is not flat. But I'm sure there is now a Roko-shaped dent in the sidewalk. ( there has to be a tv tropes ref ) and her chassis has surely suffered serious damage. It is significant that Jeph had this happen right outside Union Robotics...

Oh she's not going to be flat. Broken into a multitude of pieces, yes. But a pancake she will not be.

I'm just curious if this is going to lead to a body dysphoria arc or an impermanence of the physical arc.

***kin' OW!

This could be serious, Corpsewitch said that the arena robots were hardened against damage, but a domestic model like Roko? I doubt that even as a police robot she had much by way of armor plating (she'd presumably have had to hand it back when she quit otherwise).

Ah well, looks like Faye and Bubbles have got their steady cash income, assuming insurance will pay out and Union Robotics get the job. Is robot insurance more like car insurance I wonder...

I second that Spookybot will probably be involved somewhere along the line.

Given the general tone of Questionable Content, that turn in the story is a little too dark. I mean, AI are literally indestructible, their cores are designed and tested to be able to withstand being run over by a tank. Plus, critical existence failure due to being crushed by another AI who slipped on a crate of bananas is just too overly comical a way to kill off a character.

I don't mean to push the idea that Roko is in fact doomed.

But I think a couple of people now have stated as fact that AI cores can withstand being run over by a tank. And as far as I know, that comes from comic 3008.

But is this true of ALL AIs? Or just the ones that were participating in the fights?

I don't want to overread 3008, but to me, "triple-reinforced drives" suggests to me that this is an exception to the norm (i.e. reinforced to three times the strength of a standard AI drive).

I'll just add that the expressions on the face of Bubbles and Faye suggest strongly to me that Roko's is in fact in danger.

So I'm not so quite so blithely sure of her safety as some.

Even if her brain is fine, we just spent quite a bit of time reminding us that Roko has very high bodily integration, to the point where she becomes ill at the sight of damaged parts.  Even if her core programming is perfectly fine, she's gonna be suffering a LOT.

Really, in some ways, it might be kinder if she were dead.  She's almost certainly in for a tricky recovery.

Counterpoint: this is a comic in which one of the central characters watched her father commit suicide, and her watching that happen was actually depicted.

It can get dark.

Granted, it hasn't gotten that dark for over a decade, but still.

I doubt Roko is dead and if she had to sustain major damage this is the right place for emergency repairs, but I'm not sure what her insurance policy is like since she left the police force.  She might get stuck with a substandard chassis like May.  Maybe she had the AI equivalent of COBRA, but if she has something less like the Decepticons she'll probably get dumped out a space shuttle.  If she's lucky Unicron will reformat her.  Either that or Spookybot, but you know they'd lord that over her everyday.

Insurance doesn't get much less than COBRA. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised at all to find out if their founder's name is something like Rexford G. "Rex" Lewis or Laird James McCullen Destro XXIV.

But it could get a lot worse.

Former cop who ended an illegal robot fighting ring gets "accidentally" slain by one of the former fighters involved in it. The only witnesses are two individuals also up to their necks in involvement, and whose greymarket Chop Shop the victim walked out of moments before.

DAs are professionally suspicious, and there was definitely something unusual about the resolution of the original case.

It's grey market in that they aren't accredited like an Idoru Store or Whatever the place Winslow's new body came from would be. They aren't doing anything illegal, and the building presumably passed safety inspection, but at the same time, they mayn't be a certified repair shop for those brands.

They're canon-esque, perhaps?  They are not part of the storyline, having been originally created a while back, but there's no reason this couldn't have happened at some point.  (It does not mean that Roko is suddenly fine.)

*sigh*

I'm sure that is the way their minds work. It made total sense to me. That's why I liked the post (don't know if you noticed) and praised it (not sure if you realised that either).

It is speculation because, regardless of how believable the post is, there's no guarantee that this is the way the story will go.

Edit: correction, I hadn't clicked like! But I did like it. If you know what I mean.

I know what you mean.

I have no idea if Jeph had thought of this though. It's obvious in hindsight, but perhaps only in hindsight. So obvious though that some reason should be thought up to prevent such complications if they are not to inevitably occur. Roko recovering for example. Or echoes of Spookybot ô intervention in the past. Even "We Klingons don't talk about it" or "We have top men working on it" followed by dropping the subject.

Maybe Jeph will read this and say "Ah, so some of the readers got it" as I'm sure he's done in the past. Or will say "Oops.. better do something about it". But now I really *am* speculating, so I'm content to wait and see what happens sometime in the coming month or two.

This is a rattling good comic series, to state the obvious.

It is speculation, but consistent with what we know, that Eminence Grise would not have stopped with Roko but might have "negotiated" with the DA about jurisdiction as well.

Or the DA may never find out, or Jeph may not be interested in telling that kind of story.

Also, regarding the insurance implications... most people don't carry blanket liability policies outside of businesses. Sure, there's heavy machinery insurance, but not blanket "I tripped and fell and injured someone" policies.

And, in any case, my guess is that whoever left the banana box in the public right of way that Crushbot stepped on would be held liable, unless Crushbot was carrying the box...

It's pretty standard on homeowner's policies, and if AI insurance works like car insurance it will provide for paying for repairs to victims of collisions.

I don't know about the US, but in the UK having third-party insurance is a legal requirement if you drive a car on a public road.

Okay, I see what you meant, Tova.  But, since this is fiction from one artist's mind, it's all speculation.  I agree that Jeph isn't apt to take the story in that direction - it would change the tenor of the entire strip to mystery/courtroom drama.

In most US states it's required (a couple states don't require it, and a few states allow you to declare self-insurance at a certain level (mine allows it if you have at least 25 vehicles registered in your name and deposit $25,000 with the state)).
