WCDT strips 4216-4220 (9th to 13th March 2020)
« on: 08 Mar 2020, 11:58 »

I admit that I'm running low on poll ideas but this is a nice one.

Jeph has a large back-catalogue of characters, both ones previously seen on-screen and those whose existence has only been mentioned. Which new/returning character would you like to see make an appearance, perhaps in a specific arc driven partly by their presence?

I had to think about this one for a while but in the end, I opted for:
  • The Bianchi Parents - Dora is getting married and, for some reason, Sven keeps on loosing his hair. Will the Bianchis want to work out what is happening with their kids?
  • Arthur the moderator - I just liked how he interacted with Faye and Hannelore. Now Hanners is getting interested in helping in the community, is it possible that she might want to help out with the self-help groups? He might be a mentor or a work-place crush! The self-help groups could easily turn into a significant location in the strip!
  • Wil and Penny - I really want to see how that hopeless romantic poet and his very, very outspoken and strong-willed GF are doing.
Who do you want to see? Select up to three choices and don't forget to make a comment to specify who if you select 'Other'!

I went with Faye's mother and the Bianchis, but I'd also like another cameo by Marigold's father.

Jimbo has been MIA for a long time now. And we need to finally meet Claire and Clinton’s dad. (I will be severely disappointed if he is not named Claudius. ;) )

And maybe a glimpse of how O’Malley is doing at the PD.

My choices:

1. Claire and Clinton's father, just to see how much violence Jeph thinks Google can tolerate.

2. Ellen.  Not necessarily an encounter with Steve, but just to she how she's getting along.  In a similar vein, Raven.

3. Brun's family, if it exists.  (Both her parents are deceased, right?)  Or maybe Renee is the closest thing she has to family.

There's a story line hanging fire about how Mrs. Whitaker will react to her other daughter being in a lesbian relationship, and on top of that a cross-species one. I'm confident it will work out, but it won't be easy for her. At least she'd already given up on grandchildren.

I'd like to see her again anyway.

They will now play a drinking game whereby they binge read QC and take a drink for every panel where a character is drunk.

Luckily they will most likely fall unconscious before they catch up to the latest comic and cause a feedback loop that destroys the Internet.

(Seriously, Jeph’s characters get drunk very often)

Or is it virtual drunkness via app?

I doubt it's "perfectly good beer" after it's gone flat and been mixed with anything else that was also in the tank.

Many of them are young adults, and drinking yourself stupid(er) is a favorite pastime of that cohort.

There is so much to unpack in this comic that I'm not sure where to start. Firstly, are the pairings coincidental? They didn't really have to pair off to toast the new apartment like  that. However, they did and I can't help but wonder if that's significant.

As an aside, I can't help but think Brun's response to Clinton is cute!

So, we go onto Drinkr and two features that interest me. Firstly, that the freeware version is it impossible to get fully drunk or even to get to its' reduced limit quickly. I'm guessing from the page title that the upgrade to Drinkr Pro is $19.99 and I puzzled for a while why anyone would pay $20 to get inebriated and fast. Then I remembered that there are a lot of humans who pay a lot more to do the same thing and realised that Millifeulle is actually somewhat ahead of the curve, financially speaking.

I guess it says a lot about Millie; I suspect that she's one of those very socially nervous personalities who needs to be tipsy to not feel nervous at parties. Unfortunately, she's either a quiet wallflower or shes a wild force of nature!

Finally, Millie and Beepatrice's smiles for most of the page feed into my 'we enjoy watching humans exist' mindset held by some Synthetics.

The Freeware Version only lets you get tipsy, and the buzz wears off really fast. Also, there's no way to kill the hangover process, and is always at 75% no matter how much you simulated.
Pro version let's you get drunk faster, and in fact, the default is sped up quite a bit.

Milly seems to be the kind of person who is in maximum drunk party mode after a single shot.

I'm not convinced that Beeps'.... lack of acceleration is due to it being the free version, so much as her not hammering the "drink" button like Millie clearly is.

If you're right then Millie ending up with Faye in the self-help group is going from 'if' to 'when' in my book.

I voted for him. Not precisely for the reason you propose, but in hopes of seeing a resolution of some sort. I know life isn't that orderly or neat, but Jeph's world frequently is, and since Claire has become such an important character, that seems like something that might happen.

Random question that came to mind: if robots smell tea, why wouldn't they smell beer?

Bonus question: if the Revelation sells Robot Beers, how do they coexist with Drinkr?

Different smell profiles than human beer? There is that one strip where Marten offers Bubs to smell his IPA, and the answer was about it smelling kind of disgusting to a robot.
Also, the Drinkr App probably is the drunk simulation alone, and no outside stimulus.

Smells seem to elicit visual and auditory hallucinations. That's generally not a reaction one is seeking when consuming alcohol. Drinkr is there to simulate the mind state one typically is seeking from booze. Thus, there is no conflict.

Because most beers (especially pale ales) smell vile.

I dunno.  I've been committed/sectioned several times, and some people still don't like me throwing the word "crazy" about with reckless abandon.  I think that the main reason that I still use it is to keep it from having (more) power over me.

At some point, someone needs to tell Millifeulle that old warning to the class clown: "They're not laughing with you, they're laughing at you." I'm sure that she's only doing this because she needs something to 'break the ice' but, as we can see on everyone's faces, its also making her a negative spectacle. I'm pretty sure that the real problem is self image, based on how she keeps coming back to her recent modification. However, I don't think that how she's trying to handle the nervousness is going to work out for her.

Meanwhile, the way this spontaneous party is going has further convinced me that at least one new relationship will have begun by the end of the day! Drunk Millie and drunk Brun will likely lead to unguarded admissions.

First time, too. Altough I'm not a native english speaker... and the equivalent portuguese words for "crazy" are rarely used to describe actual clinically mad people, so I'm not sure if I get the real weight of the c-word.

So what's the name of this beer? It could be simply 'GOOD' but I suspect there's more to it than that.

I must be sheltered. This is literally the first I've heard of crazy being a bad word.

First time, too. Altough I'm not a native english speaker... and the equivalent portuguese words for "crazy" are rarely used to describe actual clinically mad people, so I'm not sure if I get the real weight of the c-word.

Not the first time I'd heard it. Nonetheless, thought I'd cast about for an article about it, and the Almighty Oracle provided:

I only use the word to describe myself. I never use it about anyone or anything else.

I have, at a minimum, depression and anxiety.  Does that give me "c-word" privileges?

It could certainly be.  After all, "BEER" brand beer has been available in Alberta for decades.

But calling people "dipshit" is okay.

And people wonder why I rarely speak.
