I could easily imagine a robo-phile getting surgary to look like a robot. Just saying.

Only if they went to some sort of hack. No responsible, ethical or sane doctor or surgeon would do the operation. They're not going to excise a healthy body for someone's fetish.

Well Castlerook, we were both wrong.

I wonder if she's got any siblings and what their names might be?

I'm not sure I'd call Iris blue.  And why are there two anime-bots chasing a duck in the background?

If I'm not mistaken, that's a wild goose they're chasing.

EDIT: Adding reference link for anyone unfamiliar with the term.

No! Really? I never would've guessed!


No, seriously though, I would imagine that cosmetic surgeons would be under the same ethics as other surgeons. For example, in many jurisdictions, removing a healthy limb is considered illegal despite informed consent from the patient. Its why many surgeons refuse to entertain the concept of cosmetic amputation.

If there is no need to remove a healthy limb, there's no ethical reason to do so.

Two things struck me about this strip but only re-reading. Firstly, in panel 1, the position of Clinton and Willow's hands makes it possible to make the interpretation that they were sort-of-unconsciously about to hold hands. Now, I don't think that's the case but it does suggest that my subconscious is a Clintillow shipper. Given that this is literally only the third strip in which the two characters have directly interacted, it might mean that I have a problem here.

Secondly, yeah, I'm guessing that the two girls and the duck apparently wearing a bandanna are a reference to either another webcomic or a really obscure art-house animé. I really don't need to know more apart from that.

I think,that, if nothing else, Clinton has met a woman who is as socially awkward as he is. Really, Willow's behaviour reflects his own behaviour when he was on a date with Emily. She's desperately trying to fill the air of her awkwardness and nervousness with words. Any words, no matter how inane it seems. I'm wondering if her anger is panel 4 is to cover over: "Ohmigod, he's seen through me! He knows I'm a phony who doesn't really know anything!"

So, they're going to Union Robotics? I wonder why? I mean Clinton is a former customer and knows Faye and Bubbles personally through the vector of all of them knowing Claire but they're hardly what I would expect to be casual social connections. If Jeph plans to have Bubbles preach to Clinton about accepting your inner truth or something, I might skip the week. I really don't like it when he has his characters deliver Author Tracts, especially characters that I like. However, optimistically, Faye will open the week by pointing at Willow and essentially yelling: "Hey, Nerd! Is that your new girlfriend?" and basically everything spirals outwards into ever greater chaos from there on.

Clinton says why he's going to Union Robotics.  He wants to talk to Sam (or, if she's not there, Faye and Bubbles) about sprays and how that fits with what he's studying at college.  Willow's going because she's tagging along with Clinton.

Hopefully Clinton will be more sensitive about "Hi I am an academic and I am here to learn about an anthropological* phenomenon" than Amanda's girlfriend (Evie?) was with Bubs.  He's come a long way from the awkward dork who showed up to talk to Marten about his relationship with Pintsize and went Creepy Fanboy on Hannelore.

*or whatever the AI version of anthropology should be called

Very sassy, Clinton.  :laugh:

For example, in many jurisdictions, removing a healthy limb is considered illegal despite informed consent from the patient. Its why many surgeons refuse to entertain the concept of cosmetic amputation.
I'm not sure whether it can be described as cosmetic, but amputation of healthy limbs has been performed in the UK, for example, without apparent legal consequences. I suspect that many surgeons might be reluctant to deal with issues of such a serious psychological nature.

"Need" is a slippery notion. The surgical procedures involved in gender reassignment (or confirmation, if you prefer) routinely involve removal of healthy body parts, for example, and I would not describe that as unethical. The poor performance, relative to natural limbs, of our present state of the art in prosthetics is another factor. The ethics of limb replacement could be regarded differently if prosthetics of superior performance were developed as in science fiction like Ghost in the Shell.

They are popular Vtubers Gawr Gura, And Oozora Subaru from the hololive company. Seems like Jeff has "fallen down the rabbit hole."

I knew I would find the answer to my confusion as to what was going on in the background in panels 1  & 2 answered here.  Thank you fellow forum user.

Hmmm, I don't know. If Jeph wanted Clinton and Elliot to be in a relationship that badly, he would've done that years ago. At the moment, every time they seem to be getting close, something happens to screw it up. I'm getting the feeling that Jeph has different plans for these two.

I sure hope not. I honestly think they would be a bad fit for each other, plus I find Elliot to be an annoying character and wouldn’t mind seeing less of him. But Jeph gonna Jeph. Who knows what’ll happen.

Why a duck? ( because i am not afraid to ask the tough questions )

Oozora Subaru is known for her Donald Duck impressions. She has been teased about embracing her inner duckness. To the point that a little white duck wearing a copy of her signature ball cap has now appeared.

- and that's enough Internet for today.

Ah, my recently acquired specialist subject.  It is very definitely a Duck they are chasing, the hat is a dead giveaway.
The second person is Gwar Gura, a shaaark and one of the english hololive members, one that had a particularly meteoric rise in popularity.
Oh and to further explain other references,
Jeph has fallen down the rabbit hole-peko.
Red Scare is referencing Usada Pekora, another japanese hololive member and a rabbit.
Highlights involve her minecraft traps, unique laugh, brutal Get Over It mindgame with Noel, and crossing two language barriers to play minecraft in english with Moona, an indonesian vtuber. Many people have fallen down the rabbit rabbithole.

Honestly, this leads to an interesting thought. If Vtubers are people operating anime style computer generated avatars...and Clinton already has a prosthetic hand...has anyone put a human mind into a robot body?

Welcome, new person!

I find myself unconvinced that Elliott and Clinton are compatible. Not that a relationship would be doomed, but it would require a lot of personal growth from both.

I suspect someone on Station is working on human hybrot technology. We've got people working on it IRL. Granted, there hasn't been much recent news on the mater since the research team started back in 2013, so that's totally nothing to worry about. [insert nervous laughter]

I'm actually increasingly optimistic, because we have seen plenty of personal growth from them both in the last 10-15 strips.
