Except no one actually got hurt on it. Coyoty September 3, 2021 at 1:22 am 3 weeks ago ::ZAP!::SPLUBT!:: “That was Minifer chugging a Mountain Dew.” “More for us.” Meerling September 3, 2021 at 3:24 am 3 weeks ago That race is completely heartless psychopaths, not to mention homicidal. Maybe they’re sociopaths, I can never keep those two straight. I guess it’s lucky for them they have enough pack instincts to work together, more or less. tlhonmey September 3, 2021 at 1:53 pm 3 weeks ago Sociopath and Psychopath are very closely related. Psychologists argue about what the differences are all the time. Mostly they seem to agree that Psychopaths are more likely to be violent. In RPG terms, a sociopath would be chaotic neutral and a psychopath would be chaotic evil. These guys seem like sociopaths. They’ll hurt people out of carelessness or convenience or an overabundance of paranoia and not mind a bit. But we haven’t seen any clear cases of them preferring to hurt others when both paths fit their objectives equally well and they’ve actually noticed that they have a choice. Scorpinac September 3, 2021 at 5:25 am 3 weeks ago If between these idjits and Ruddock there are barely any Stribs left to fight when the others finally arrive, it’s gonna be kinda anti-climactic as far as final battles go. Al Infamous September 3, 2021 at 2:59 pm 3 weeks ago Does the ship have an AI? If so then Ruddock may be the best captain ever, again. Christopher Baldwin September 3, 2021 at 8:21 pm 2 weeks ago @Scorpinac, the final battle will still have two formidable sides. 🙂 KQY61 September 3, 2021 at 6:37 am 3 weeks ago Great. Now I have Weird Al’s ‘Trigger Happy’ running thru my head…. swarm32 September 3, 2021 at 9:24 am 3 weeks ago Oh, I still haven’t figured out the safety on my rifle yet Little Fluffy Proutiss took a round, better take him to the vet I filled that kitty cat Strib so full of lead We’ll have to use him for a pencil instead Well, I’m so trigger happy, trigger happy every day Tim McCormack September 3, 2021 at 9:26 am 3 weeks ago …is that a rocket launcher? Muzhik September 3, 2021 at 1:28 pm 3 weeks ago No, he’s just happy to see us. (Sorry. Thought that was a set-up for a joke…) Kristal September 3, 2021 at 11:27 am 3 weeks ago Thanks for making me laugh out loud! Winnie September 3, 2021 at 3:09 pm 3 weeks ago Oh, Chris. I just love how the toothbrush didn’t get splubted in panel 5. It’s the little things, you know. Pete Rogan September 3, 2021 at 6:22 pm 2 weeks ago God. I begin to see why the Stribs are so eager to turn humans into nannies. Given their homicidal proclivities, they would need a high birth rate just to keep their population from declining, SPLUBT by SPLUBT. You can’t intimidate a Galaxy if you’re at home, raising the next generation of targets. Homicidal proclivities combined with unlimited paranoia. I don’t know that that’s an RPG the third Strib is carrying, but he/she is wearing goggles, which tells me that use of this weapon results in a bright, bright flash. The Stribs do not possess the concept of ‘overkill,’ so I would expect we’ll see what it does sooner rather than later. Which makes me think of another plot dilemma I will not be posting here. Nope, nope, nope, nope. You’ll have to guess it on your own. someone September 4, 2021 at 2:30 am 2 weeks ago That officer always carry these goggles, so that’s no indication of their weapon’s effect. They’re the science officer, apparently: https://www.baldwinpage.com/spacetrawler/2020/11/26/112620-with-and-without-you/ The score so far: Ruddock 49+ vs. Command Staff 2 Yes I counted 46 different visible Stribs in the cuddle pudddle. There were presumably more of them in the bit of the basket that was cut off. Before that there was Resperazzi and then two more. On the Command Staff’s side, there’s Proutiss here, but also Goonth. minando September 4, 2021 at 3:12 am 2 weeks ago And that is why people who claim that ‘if everybody is armed, there will be peace on earth’ are absolutely right. After a while. Enjoy the silence. Julian September 4, 2021 at 9:56 am 2 weeks ago I’m just loving these cuddly little killers more and more. Pete Rogan September 5, 2021 at 8:32 pm 2 weeks ago I’m your biggest fan, I’ll follow you until you love me Blasta-blastarazzi Baby, there’s no other superstar, you know that I’ll be Your blasta-blastarazzi Promise I’ll be kind But I won’t stop until that ship is mine Baby, you’ll be famous, chase you down until you love me Blasta-blastarazzi Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
