Zeebob Froomchik III, Esq. March 9, 2021 at 12:52 am 2 years ago “Never tell me the odds!” ???? Gregg Eshelman March 11, 2021 at 2:35 am 2 years ago The odds of anything are %50. It happens or it doesn’t. Coyoty March 9, 2021 at 1:48 am 2 years ago “Oh… You’re the diggers from that hollow planet. This can’t be a coincidence.” “Not really. We’ve been chasing you to get Stangor back.” “I knew there was a miner catch to this.” someone March 9, 2021 at 6:44 am 2 years ago What happened to “I don’t think I would allow it”? FlySwatter March 9, 2021 at 7:06 am 2 years ago “I mean, as long as you’re here and all, I guess it would be rude /not/ to accept your rescue offer.” shoop March 9, 2021 at 8:22 am 2 years ago Does anyone else like this depression was extreme and came out of nowhere? Suddenly he wants to die? Kaidah March 9, 2021 at 8:33 am 2 years ago That’s kind of how depression, and mental illness in general, works sometimes, especially if left untreated like his obviously has been. You go through life pretending everything is fine, making all the right faces and pleasantries and whatnot so no one knows or suspects anything is wrong, and eventually it all just sort of comes to a head and you feel like you can’t go on anymore and walking into traffic seems like a perfectly reasonable solution. This is, of course, a gross oversimplification of an extremely complicated issue that unfortunately isn’t really important to society as a whole (at least in North America). But we’re getting better. I wish I had had access to half of the resources my son has when I was his age. Steel Raven March 9, 2021 at 12:43 pm 2 years ago Keep in mind the dude didn’t seem to care his life was in danger when we first meet him. I’m guessing Chip has allot of baggage he is just now possessing. totematika March 9, 2021 at 5:01 pm 2 years ago So the miners are a few hunder meters above the ship? Or was he drifting (and slowing down, maybe due to gas clouds) for a few hours? Pete Rogan March 9, 2021 at 7:17 pm 2 years ago Life gets easier when you just go with what happens, especially if you don’t have a good reason to refuse. Chiphu seems to be living at the bare edge of existence, and I don’t mean running out of air in deep space. He’s had a lifelong need addressed, and found it complicated his life, but instead of getting bound up in it, he feels free to discard all that rather than let it bother him. I can’t say this is advantageous for all purposes, but it’s interesting to compare his attitude to that of Tesfay, which has also now been artificially addressed. No telling where either of them are going, physically, mentally, or emotionally. Setting my comfy chair right and contemplating an iced tea as I think about it. And of course continue to watch.
