Party like you’re 21. http://bestanimations.com/Holidays/Birthday/funnybithdaygifs/funny-how-imet-your-mother-happy-birthday-gif.gif Coyoty February 25, 2019 at 1:12 am 3 years ago Maybe Emily didn’t mean Devyat in particular, and intended for each person to think she meant them. Jude February 25, 2019 at 1:41 am 3 years ago No need for you to kill everyone in the room, Devyat. At the speed their arguing is escalating, they’ll do it themselves just fine. On the other hand, the longer you spend arguing with your mom, Gounder will look after it instead. So 46, Christopher? You look awfully young for a rooster your age (admittedly really really weird for a rooster). As a human though, looking good and sassy for 46! Daniel Björk February 25, 2019 at 4:45 am 3 years ago Happy Birthday. You made it again, keep up the good work. Nova February 25, 2019 at 5:11 am 3 years ago Hmm. Couldn’t she just get the ship within a vague line-of-sight, and then inspect+silently disable it remotely? I’m having a bit of trouble keeping track what the limits of her telekinesis actually are. andreas February 25, 2019 at 11:41 am 3 years ago Good point – perhaps Devyat could re-wire the launch button to the lunch button to further mess with bag-of-snakes gounder gone native? Ideally she could keep her intervention subtle and let some of the braggards take the credit for it… Also I heard a rumor that 46 is the new 37 😉 Efogoto February 25, 2019 at 1:39 pm 3 years ago “I’m having a bit of trouble keeping track what the limits of her telekinesis actually are.” Me too, but remember that Devyat and Pilot had to go out to Planet Haucht to disable the enemy ships, so there is a range limit. That means either a trip out to the Gownder’s (this may only be a one strip typo, but I find it handy to have a shorthand way of expressing that it is the Slinten pod version of the Gounder (short except for the long parenthetical explanation)) ship or trying to disarm the missile as it comes into range, which could be tricky, and probably veering it off-course. FlySwatter February 25, 2019 at 6:24 am 3 years ago Happy birthday Chris! Bill Barni February 25, 2019 at 11:05 am 3 years ago Happy birthday, Chris! Thanks a lot for giving all your awesome art to the world! You deserve all the best. Frith Ra February 25, 2019 at 3:13 pm 3 years ago You have the same age and birthday as my cousin in Norway. Are you sure that you’re not him? Peter Rogan February 25, 2019 at 4:11 pm 3 years ago Happy Birthday, Chris! And many happy returns of the day. With immense power comes not just immense responsibility, but tremendous scope for action. Possibilities outrun morality, and you are left to decide alone how best to reshape the world in whatever image. Knowing, or perhaps not, that in so doing you become a fugitive from the law of unintended consequences. Whose penalties fall not on you but on everything and everybody you hold near and dear. When you seek vengeance, goes the old saw, always dig two graves. So too here. But you may never know who fills the other grave until the burial, and you will be appalled. You WILL be. clacke February 25, 2019 at 9:03 pm 3 years ago I haven’t really thought about how many fingers Eebs are supposed. I probably assumed four, because now I’m slightly surprised to notice there are five fingers. 🙂 clacke February 25, 2019 at 9:04 pm 3 years ago … to have Christopher Baldwin February 26, 2019 at 12:48 am 3 years ago They are a branch off of the ol’ human’s line. Five is the number! 🙂 Randall R. Besch February 25, 2019 at 9:21 pm 3 years ago And a HAPPY BIRTH DAY to you, Chris! With many more into the unknown future. Muzhik February 25, 2019 at 9:27 pm 3 years ago 46? Well. It seems the assassins have failed once again. No matter. There’s always next year. Until then; Happy Birthday Anniversary. For now… Efogoto February 26, 2019 at 2:18 am 3 years ago Birthaversary? Nah. Sounds too birth averse, the very opposite of what happened. Happy BDay Chris! Kaidah February 26, 2019 at 8:15 am 3 years ago Happy belated birthday Chris. Kaidah February 26, 2019 at 8:28 am 3 years ago …that was just supposed to be a link. Not sure why it embedded. Sorry about that. Rene February 26, 2019 at 3:31 pm 3 years ago Happy birthday! You have joined us at 46!!! Bwa ha ha ha… Leave a Reply to Randall R.
