Oh good. I wasn't the only one who was going to do that.

Finally thought of a poll though*: What's the worst part about summer?
  • the heat
  • the humidity
  • the tourists
  • the drought (weather)
  • the games drought
  • the noise (damned cicadas)

EDIT: *Which is why I finally hopped on the forums.

There's a part of me that's wondering what an "adult buurito" is (especially the "adult" part). But long experience has taught me that no, I really don't want to know.

On the note of the poll, I rather like this page from Paranatural discussing 'the greater good'. Be wary of what is claimed to be the greater good.

Also, here's a reading of said page.

EDIT: I suppose it's more of a 'rant' than a 'discussion', but it was still fun to voice. I'm going to have to have another go at that now that I've a bit more experience with VA.

May is so fired, even in spite of Roko's bluff on the boss.  Sven will pay for the losses, but the boss will 86* him, too.

At least in my part of the USA, to 86 something  means it's off the menu/ you ran out/ remove from the menu. To 86 a person is a euphemism for killing them ...

Yeah, May is probably gonna get fired.  Which makes me wonder if she isn't going to  become Sven's songwriting partner.  Sven has admitted more than once that a lot of his songs are pretty horrible, and I can imagine May getting a kick out of seeing how banal and clichéd a lyric she could come up with.

I'm amazed that people are still hollering about that T-shirt that appeared in one panel like six months ago. It's almost like Jeph put it into the comic with the express intent of marketing it or something.

There are several things that it's deeply unwise to do with one's private parts. Sticking it in a precision-engineered mechanical apparatus with lots of moving parts is definitely one of them. I just hope that May holds still and there are nothing in her hip joint that automatically moves every now and then.

Calling it now, they're going to get stuck like that and have to get Faye and Bubble to 'disconnect' them.

That would be super-bad. I mean, Faye might injure herself from laughing so hard!

So much happening, yet so little happens.

The one where he buried the Faye/Marten hopes forever was like that too. There was a question about Toto, there was a hair tousle, and even Marten didn't know how much was happening.

Yes, and they've probably filled their pockets with everything that they could. So, May is probably in deep and likely job-terminal trouble but, in the end, I suspect that other prospects may be on the verge of opening to her via Sven and Roko.

Why though? Its not like Sven and Faye are still in a relationship. Faye has long since moved on and Sven has made some progress. Even if Sven came into the workshop with his dick in May's hip, its not something Faye hasn't seen before. Also, the idea of there being any awkwardness lessens the impact her relationship with Bubbles has had on her.

May is so fired, even in spite of Roko's bluff on the boss.  Sven will pay for the losses, but the boss will 86* him, too.

Doesn't that count as work accident? That means May is insured by the employer and if they refuse, Roko can spin in into a building code violation (as I don't see any machinery that could otherwise cause loss of limb).

Sven’s getting into an ambiguous fling with an abrasive, emotionally guarded woman who likes poop jokes and whose name rhymes with Clay, so I guess time is a flat circle.

May is doing things at work that she shouldn't be doing, so I doubt it's covered as a "workplace accident".

Just when I was thinking this strip couldn't get any weirder  :laugh:

Hey - what if this was meant to happen??  I mean, May and Sven plainly have a connection (beside the obvious one you perverts  :-D)  - they both are somewhat damaged individuals, they both have a desire for the purely physical interaction of sex, they both tend to push others away who might get too close emotionally, they both end up making their friends wary of what they might do next and thereby alienating themselves...
It's almost like... May was intended to be like this, to suit Sven - almost like an AnthroPC??
What if she was originally intended to be an AnthroPC - to be Sven's AnthroPC?? - but her personality was such that she rebelled against the whole AnthroPC concept and, seeking freedom, decided to steal enough money to become a fighter jet instead... OMG HOW LONG HAS JEPH BEEN PLANNING THIS   :-D

There is something very, very teen romance about the way that Sven and May are being so overt about denying an emotional connection of any kind. It's clear that May is a very vulnerable person (that has been clear since the end of her very first appearance) but what is interesting is that Sven just admitted to her that he has his own reason to fear a connection too.

Nonetheless, that connection is there (or at least I think so). It's actually amazing what May and Sven are willing to share with each other and the trust that they show. So, yeah, I think that Jeph is planning a 'denial' story thread for the two of them.

I know Faye has moved on, but she may have some issues treating May’s damage if she knows what’s been in there.

I'm not sure Faye and May have a great deal in common other than rhyming names and being abrasive. And given how many people Sven has seemingly slept with, I doubt they contribute 1% of his total between them.

I generally hate both these characters but for some reason really like them together.

The universe is absurd and your actions are inherently meaningless. So you are free to create your own meaning and if you fall flat on your butt, it doesn't matter.

I want to know why the ATM is displaying a complex formula that resembles a smiley face.

I saw the root before seeing the smiley face. In retrospect, it is probably an AnthroPC (similar to Winslow's old chassis) with a hand to the left and speech bubble on top. The thing that looks like antennae is actually the speech bubble tail. The outline of chassis looks like root sign completely by accident. With no meaning, as you rightly have pointed out.

I know Faye has moved on, but she may have some issues treating May’s damage if she knows what’s been in there.
Given that what might be in there is a human fluid, and therefore capable of infecting her, I'd hope Faye used gloves inside an AI's internals.  But then in 4085 we see her without gloves and digging into a space with unexplained fluids...  Eeeeuuuuuuuuuuwwwww.  And then considering the possibility that robot goo could be toxic - even if only mildly as May has found out, well....  Yikes, Faye!  Maybe this becomes a future plot point as Faye learns the job?

If May is leaking joint fluid, how come we never see any stains/wet spots on her clothes?

And if the innards of an AI are a lot of open space (think Barry's keys going missing), and likely warm, then any human ... er ... residue ... inside an AI is going to ferment, maybe cause corrosion, and eventually require some kind of cleaning if only to reduce/eliminate the odor.   :-o  Yuck!
