More like their self-serving judgment. Pedrocelli May 1, 2019 at 1:52 am 3 weeks ago “Eleven”. “-ish”. Actually he probably knows about the other 43 but isn’t letting on. Pedrocelli May 1, 2019 at 1:53 am 3 weeks ago BTW how do you leave a comment when there are no comments on that page yet? It always fails when I try that. blackout May 1, 2019 at 2:49 am 3 weeks ago It’s an issue with clicking directly from the front page for some reason; navigating back a page and then to the current day’s page shows the comment section without an error. Pedrocelli May 2, 2019 at 2:55 am 3 weeks ago Thanks blackout. I’ll try that tomorrow – too late for today already! Rex Vivat May 1, 2019 at 2:49 am 3 weeks ago Eleven(ish) in so many years actually does qualify as “rarely”. FlySwatter May 1, 2019 at 6:51 am 3 weeks ago Nice view shift in panel 3. Random thought: I hope Devyat doesn’t need to go to the bathroom since there doesn’t seem to be one. Maybe there’s a potty-bot under the bed? Tim McCormack May 1, 2019 at 10:23 am 3 weeks ago Possibly the Extremely Complicated Machine behind Dimitri folds out as a full bathroom. 🙂 Christopher Baldwin May 1, 2019 at 10:23 am 3 weeks ago @Flyswatter, thank you. 🙂 And also, there is one! You can see it in yesterday’s strip behind Pilot in panel 2 and behind Dimitri’s leg in panel 3. I imagine there being some privacy curtains, or hologram curtains, for privacy, which pop up. Herb May 1, 2019 at 3:33 pm 3 weeks ago You imagined the rest of the story, so if you imagined curtains then they must be there. Or so I imagine. Peter Rogan May 1, 2019 at 8:58 pm 3 weeks ago Ah, the battle of authority against the free will of children. Difficult to win, not that Dmitri makes that claim. And Devyat is careful to just agree with his number, not introduce either justice or oppression in this moment. How things actually stand is probably more in Dmitri’s favor in any case, but it’s not worth arguing now. What IS worth arguing is what guidance he can offer her now, beyond the obvious. It’s entirely possible he sees a hole in security through which Devyat can escape. Justification is not a path forward or out. She’s got to find her own way… which Dmitri hopes to detect and assist as necessary. Good luck, Devyat. Whatever happens, it’s plain dear old Dad is going to be behind it, helping and grinning as he always does. >sigh< Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
