I have to assume that May's chassis was lightly refurbished and immediately handed off to the next parolee as a cost saving measure by robot Jail.
I really hope that isn't true.
We all know it probably is, though...
Well, ISTR it was stated that any other chassis they had were worse (or was it nothing better?)

I know I'm two days late for this, but:

Quote from: Jeph
I'm very tickled by the idea of someone wearing a tube top under a lab coat.

When I was studying Chemistry 30 years ago, I had to take a course in a lab which had a large window front to the south and no climate control. It was a hot and sunny summer day and we all were steaming in our own juices underneath our mandatory lab coats. Then a female fellow student went to the rest room and returned with her lab coat on but her t-shirt in her hand. Over a short time three or four of our female collegues did the same.

I can tell you, knowing that your female fellow student ist just wearing her bra under her lab coat is very tickling.  :roll:

It's an old story, but comic #4547 brought it back to my mind. I thought, I'd share it with you.

Titillation can be very context specific.  There is not much objective difference between "just a bra under her t-shirt" and "just a bra under her lab coat".  Yet the situational differences help trigger all sorts of imaginings :}

Can confirm. SOWIS institutions (hospitals, prisons, universities) werenít allowed to purchase  margarine in bulk until the 21st Century, IIRC.

Hell, the teacher assistant for my micro lab wore a spaghetti strap shirt under her fully buttoned labcoat all through August.

EDIT: both to correct a typo and clarify my point.

<query> How exactly would the guys following suit and taking off their shirts in the men's bathroom result in a sexual harassment suit?

Speaking from personal experience, Clinton's plan is not going to work.

The subconscious will always translate certain real-world stimulae into certain dream effects, no matter how irrational.

You know how you get a full bladder in the middle of the night, and you have certain dreams as a result? Those dreams where you're running from toilet to toilet, trying to find one to pee in, and you can't find one? Or you find one and you can't pee? Or you pee, and yet you still have to pee? Those don't go away.

My personal, idiosyncratic one involves a dry mouth. If I'm a bit dehydrated at night, my mouth feels a certain way. My sleeping brain interprets that feeling, and I dream that my mouth is full of gum. I'll pull the gum out of my mouth, and it's still full of gum. It never ends. It's not anything like what gum is like in the real world, and I've chewed gum just to remind myself of that, but my subconscious doesn't get the message. It's still dreams about gum.

If Cosmo comes by again and starts giving Clinton more dog kisses, it's going to be dream kisses. Even if Clinton knows better.

It could have been a yellow market in black margarine. That would be weirder.

Closest I've come to this is a story my grandmother told me about the 1930's. About how it was important to get margarine that was dyed yellow, because if it was white, your neighbors would think you were so poor you were spreading lard on your toast. Actual butter was out of the question.

Look very closely at the background of panel 3 in comic 4549. Hadn't noticed anything other than white space until now, but I can't unsee it.

Oh whoa, yeah! I got two monitors, ones my old TN screen where this was up originally, and nothing ever showed up, but when I moved the window to the IPS display it pops up. Tried every kind of setting on my TN screen to get it to show.  I never really believed there was all that much difference between TN and IPS but now I have an example, thanks for pointing that out!

That is weird. :?  If I look at that panel the way I normally do (on my laptop, from slightly above) I saw nothing but white background. I stared, squinted, tilted my head - nothing.
But then I lifted my laptop so that I was seeing the screen from slightly below - bingo! - there it is!

Thank you for this, as it explains a similar recurring dream experience for me. Though often for me, the things I'm pulling out of my mouth are sharp. Like, "Hey, let me just get this endless supply of glass shards out of my mouth real quick." I have not tried to correct my brain on what that would *actually* feel like, though.

It's pretty cool that I managed to inadvertently help you with this. Honestly, I didn't think it would resonate with anyone, which is why I led with the pee dream experience, which is pretty much universal.

Unfortunately, knowing better doesn't really help. About the only thing you can do is avoid going to bed thirsty.

That might (partially) explain the dream I had where I bit a chunk out of my cell phone.

So, the standard for color nowadays is 8 bits per channel - red, green, and blue - for 24 bits total (plus another 8 for alpha channel, but that isn't relevant here).

Most TN panels are 6 bit. This essentially means that the last two bits are lost, so fine color detail is lost. Modern TN panels sometimes have "FRC", or "temporal dithering", that tries to flicker the image between two values to recover the last two bits of information (as the display has the info, it just isn't able to use it normally).

Conversely, most IPS panels are 8 bit, and some are 10 bit (note that if you don't have 10-bit content, 10-bit panels' extra capability is wasted.

Also, why looking at a TN panel from below helps with viewing this: TN panels suffer from severe color shift when looking at them not straight on. There's films that can be, and are, applied to improve viewing angles, but it typically works best to optimize for left, right, and looking at the panel from above (at least for PC monitors), with no improvement for looking at the panel from below. (Note that some panels are used in a way that you optimize looking at them from below, so looking at it from above would cause the same effect.) That severe color shift is what's revealing the background.
