Beepatrice and Melon are part of the ensemble cast along with Momo and May if you ask me. Hence not listing them. And since Mille-feuille's butt implants came in, there's a fair chance she'll be one of the first to show up.

EDIT: For the very least, Melon is. Though Beeps will likely keeping showing up up through the resolvement of May's chassis issues.

Beeps at least is part of the current arc, and then may vanish into indefinite hiatus. Melon is Melon. There's no escaping Melon. All hail our Robot Overlord!

Hmmm this is true. She could very well end up like Jeremy and Corpsewitch from the fighting arena days.

We once said the same things about Yelling Bird and Randy, don't think that canon status will protect Melon.


Now that comic's up.....I had completely forgotten that Dora and Tai had gotten engaged. #godifeelold

I'll be honest and admit that I don't know what the point is supposed to be about today's strip. We've been here before - Hannelore latching onto an obscure scientific prediction of doom and obsessing about it. It's a useful way to remind us of how her obsessive nature can sometimes mess up her life quite badly. However, it's always been immersed in some larger point about how Hannelore's everyday life works before this.

I'm going to take a guess and suggest that this isn't actually about Hannelore at all. It's about Dora and how the prospect of being about to become "Mrs Tai" has impacted on her thinking.

Errrrrh - actually, there were real people who really tried to prevent the start of the real LHC on the grounds of just that obscure - and very unscientific - 'prediction'. And they got some real help along the way by our real newsmedia, because back then, there was no Brexit, and Trump was still a reality TV personality, so people had to invent shit to be scared of:-o

Hmmm.  Tai strikes me as the one who would freak out at the last minute about becoming "Mrs. Dora", not the other way around.  Dora strikes me as having been raised conventionally enough that she'd take Tai's last name if Tai asked her to, but I doubt Tai would - it's not that important to *her*.  Tai's family on the other hand, might care, and then the battle would be joined because Dora wouldn't sit still for that once she figured out it wasn't really Tai asking.

I'm actually wondering now if we're watching Jeph working his way through an anxiety attack or if he's explaining how he does so.

That aside, we all have differing perspectives and we're seeing how that applies to Dora and Hannelore in the area of mortality on every possible scale.

Schild's Ladder. An accidentally engineered, rather than spontaneous, vacuum decay. And propagating at half light speed rather than full, because it's set in a non-FTL universe and it would be hard to construct a plot out of it if the first anyone knew about there being a problem was when their planet was wiped out of existence. Tied with Diaspora as my favourite of his.

It reminds me of a similar unpredictable and unstoppable all-destroying cataclysm - Strange quarks. Once they appear, all the up and down quarks that make up the baryonic matter of the universe would turn into mixes of strange and charm quarks and probably not work anymore, at least not with the laws of physics as we know them.

When we get down to subatomic particles, even matter becomes a lot of empty space. There's a reason you need a lump of radioactive material large enough to sustain the chain reaction for nukes.
Thinking about it, you don't even have to go subatomic. Now, in a time of search for alternative fuels, hydrogen is a well known candidate. Problem: H2 molecules are so small they even creep trough metal. As in "the gaps in the molecular structure of a solid piece metal are too large to contain hydrogen".

Makes me wonder: if you want empty space, go huge (astronomical), or go tiny. We humans may just be too mediocre to be empty.

I must admit while I was reading yesterday's comic I briefly thought Hanners came in naked and the punchline would be related to that, though that would be unlike Hannelore as three other characters would be more likely to do that for scientific reasons. As for the vacuum, Hanners has nothing to worry about. The sun will engulf the earth way before that happens, unless of course they're working on that technology.

Well, for someone who is germophobic and who works in an environment with potentially scalding liquids, Hannelore doesn't wear a lot of clothing. But coming into the shop naked would be several steps beyond anything we've ever seen from her.

Pintsize, on the other hand, has been in the coffee shop naked many times.

This is Emily though, isn't it? Always positive and always looking at the bright side because... well, she loves life too much not to! That said, yeah, this is one of the reasons all the letter intelligence agencies are keeping an eye on her and periodically hard formatting the hard drive on her laptop! Sometimes, she sees so much of the good side that it's quite possible that she's blind to the bad!

I wonder how Dora would react if someone were to tell her that she's pretty much got early-strip Faye and Raven back in her life?

Well, for someone who is germophobic and who works in an environment with potentially scalding liquids, Hannelore doesn't wear a lot of clothing. But coming into the shop naked would be several steps beyond anything we've ever seen from her.

If it does happen hopefully she'll be on the meds that would make her barely mortified. At least Dora has the emergency skirt.

That strip was much earlier than I thought it was.

This is Emily though, isn't it? Always positive and always looking at the bright side because... well, she loves life too much not to! That said, yeah, this is one of the reasons all the letter intelligence agencies are keeping an eye on her and periodically hard formatting the hard drive on her laptop! Sometimes, she sees so much of the good side that it's quite possible that she's blind to the bad!

You could put Emily next to a nuclear warhead, with the time ticking, and she would talk about the beauty of fission, fusion, quarks and spin.

'Reporting for duty!' Emily is definitely going to be a wallpaper.

FOR SCIENCE!

Agreed to the wallpaper.

BTW, quite the ironic username and [whatever the dealies under them are called] pairing. 'Perfectly Reasonable' 'psychopath in a hockey mask'.
Was that intentional?

I have always been Perfectly Reasonable. Why do you ask?
The white text under your username read 'psychopath in a hockey mask', so altogether it read "perfectly reasonable psychopath in a hockey mask".

I've been thinking about this strip and it suddenly realised that this is something that Faye and, surprisingly enough, even Bubbles have not thought about: Union Robotics is essentially set up as a street-corner garage. There's a work area, a stock-room and maybe a small office-ette space and that's it. There's no private examination or consulting room as you would expect at, say, a doctor's office. What neither of the proprietors seem to have thought of is: What if their 'patients' have a sense of modesty or don't want their parts exposed to the world? Millefeuille obviously doesn't!

So, I really think that UR's shop-floor is going to need to be remodelled. At the very least, the main work table is going to need them to get a privacy curtain. Yet more expenses! It also means that they're going to have to very consciously shift away from the 'garage' mindset and adopt a 'small clinic' pattern instead.

Sam, trust me: It isn't that funny!

I don't think Sam's reaction is due to finding it funny, but more "OMG gonna get to watch (and maybe even participate in) robutt surgery!"
Whether she actually will is another story.

An AI in a manufactured body thought there'd be a "machine" (non-sentient, I assume) that would do an automatic butt implant/replacement.

Is that akin to a meat human thinking there'd be a dog or a cat doing surgery? (I mean, my ol' dog was smarter and more trustworthy than most people I knew, but I figured later on that just meant I needed to find better people to know. That's been a search, let me tell you. She was a damn fine dog.)

Nice bedside manner there, Bubs!
