11/19/12 The Surrender Debate Previous | Next Man am I brain dead. Three days of painting trim on the new apartment, I can barely see straight.

Just throw the Bounty out the window already. You can buy more. whengreg November 18, 2012 at 10:02 pm 4 years ago Horde, not Hoard Tony November 18, 2012 at 10:47 pm 4 years ago Oooh, bounty hunters threatening to blow up the stack unless Martina surrenders? I can’t wait to see how it goes down. mrtt November 19, 2012 at 12:36 am 4 years ago awwww They are so cute together Frank November 19, 2012 at 1:41 am 4 years ago Those translator chips must be really good. Spanish has no “for crying out loud” (they never found a good alternative to “for God’s sakes”, “for the love of God”, “in the name of God”, etc) And Martina seems to remember why Lunock is in the stacks in the first place. Hint: it wasn’t because of his exceptional subtlety. @Tony: Probably like the twin towers. It’s kinda the same shape (and if they’re biological in origin*, probably held up in a similar way) *Coral, Termite mounds, bodies of deceased giants, just to name a few Frank November 19, 2012 at 1:43 am 4 years ago I just thought of something: If Lunock has such a window, why didn’t they just jump in through there instead of spending all that time banging on his redobulely-reinforced super-alloy door? Hg November 19, 2012 at 2:12 am 4 years ago whengreg is correct that Martina should say “Horde”. Unless the bounty is on display? That might qualify as a hoard. 😀 Also, in the same speech bubble, there should be an apostrophe in “It’s my fault” (contraction of it is, in this context). Hg November 19, 2012 at 2:14 am 4 years ago I’m sure I come across as very pedantic, frequently commenting about typos. That’s really not my intent! I love this comic, and just don’t want to see silly little quibbles (which are ultimately unimportant compared to the incredible writing and humour) end up marring the print collections. Captain Jack November 19, 2012 at 5:55 am 4 years ago Just toss a handful of fusion grenades out for the horde to enjoy so you and Luunock can have a few moments to discuss things in peace… RavenStromdans November 19, 2012 at 6:23 am 4 years ago I have a question: How come Martina’s hair doesn’t grow on the unburned side of her head? Does she shave it to maintain uniformity? CBob November 19, 2012 at 11:26 am 4 years ago @ Raven Stomdans: there are types of second degree burns which can kill off hair follicles, but heal well enough to produce little or no visible scarring. I had a professor once who got knocked out while playing on a frozen lake as a kid, and spent about twenty minutes face down on the ice before someone found him. His face was fine, but all the follicles on his left cheek were killed, so as an adult he had to shave fastidiously or he’d start to show stubble/beard on only one side. I’ve got a few little hairless bits here and there on my hands from misadventures with chemicals or heat (I’ve got lots of artistic hobbies). M.A. November 19, 2012 at 1:42 pm 4 years ago “You giving yourself up, or what?” Damn, I’m glad I wasn’t drinking tea when I read that. Night-Gaunt November 19, 2012 at 2:57 pm 4 years ago No good way out of this, a no win situation. But it is nice to see such love between a woman and an alien. KarlMonster November 19, 2012 at 5:33 pm 4 years ago <> Well, you know the rumor that if you shave off all of your hair, it grows back slightly differently? It turns out that living in slightly different gravity, fondling giant slugs, and enraging insane pyromaniac Eebs can also influence that outcome. And Luunock is awesome! He served Martina a pistol with her tea! Christopher November 19, 2012 at 8:32 pm 4 years ago “Its” and “Horde” got it. Will fix as soon as I can. Just spent another (and theoretically LAST) day painting the new place. Now begins the actual moving. Wheeeeee. :-/ Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
