This really is a page of text, but since the text doesn't really matter, I guess it's excusable? Idunno.

Madness? THIS IS MATH!

Let us make math next to this giant pit

Technobabble...technobabble...joke funny to those who get the technobabble...Jim fixing cybernetic parts in an intimate area...

Heheh. Now we know what she thinks about and remembers when she's all alone. I bet talking dirty to her would be fun. You could do it the obvious way or talk about fixing a computer mainframe. If she was only older it probably /would/ have been her and Jim...and Mary now and then

Well, the point isn't the technobabble, any more than Mr. Scott's technobabble mattered. But that doesn't mean the scenes with technobabble in them weren't important.

Atmosphere, my dear Watson. Atmosphere!

I know. Just a lot of technobabble here uses in world technobabble so I can really get lost. But I'm able to get the gist of I believe. Most people do I'm sure.

....Is it just me or am I phrasing sentences backwards kinda like Yoda lately?

I'm sorry.

Nothing to be sorry about, but the community only has two aggressive commenters, so don't go holding your breath for other comments.

Oh I'm not. It's just like...I'm not sure a conversation ends and I can talk myself to hell and back. They need a system like radio operators use to designate when everyone is done talking or afk

I'm used to talking to the Cats, so an answer is just a pleasant bonus!

How about this ?
JasperWB 12th May 2012, 1:28 AM edit delete reply
I was hoping for a new system so I wouldn't have to end posts with "over". I don't need any more help freaking out people lol

I would comment more, if i didn't live on the other side of the world to all you lot, i'm generally asleep when the comic comes out, and then i miss the opportunity to speak with the good comments. Also congrats and thank you on doing 300 pages of brilliant comic.

Frame 8 alternate dialogue:
1.) It doesn't matter how small it is... It's how you use it!
2) Ma'am, sometimes a data jack is just a data jack...
3) Miwa, ever wonder why I put data ports here?

Well, the options are there, somewhere on her pelvis, or her spine.
Donjonkeeper 12th May 2012, 2:35 AM edit delete reply
is it just me or is he plugging that thing on the 3 ports there, why is that?

So her right arm and both legs are prosthetic. Yeesh, that was one hell of a double lightning strike.
view 12th May 2012, 3:54 AM edit delete reply
Well, prosthesis isn't so clear cut for her legs. More like... supplemented.
Meddy 12th May 2012, 6:18 AM edit delete reply
You mean they patched her legs up with robotic parts instead of replacing them altogether like they did the arm?
Donut 12th May 2012, 7:01 AM edit delete reply
That seems most likely, Meddy. If you have extensive nerve damage and you have the capability of "fixing" it with prosthetic nerves, why amputate?
JasperWB 12th May 2012, 8:46 AM edit delete reply
Yeah. Less effective, maybe, but consider her reaction to the fake arm. Besides, chugging along with the occasional tune up from Jim is far more of an upgrade!

To be honest, with the right facilities you can regrow biological limbs and damaged pieces. But this is Nowhere.
Prestidigititis 12th May 2012, 3:17 PM edit delete reply
Everyone knows....
duLapel 12th May 2012, 11:35 PM edit delete reply
--> So biological pieces and limbs can be regrown...
--> Robotic and biological limbs can be interfaced...

Two conclusions:
1) Human kind has reached practical immortality (thus life spans would average about 800 years before death by unfortunate event; of course this privilege may be attainable by only a fraction of the population)..."
2)It is possible to create a synthetic human with a cybernetic mind or even a hybrid mind...

view 13th May 2012, 12:07 AM edit delete reply
Well, as to hybrid minds, yes and no. The architecture of a human mind is pretty fragile (in this fiction). Humans are far more able to deal with unusual mental patterns (such as synaesthesia), but if you replace a lot of that with mechanical stuff, you've got to stick very closely to the archetypical human mind, because software's not so good at it.

Maybe in a while the software will catch up, but it's not there at the moment.

If there were a sign on the road at the edge of town, would it say Welcome to Nowhere or Welcome to Nowheresville?

Utter nonsense.

hmm so the politicians don't like 4D probability math?
duLapel 13th May 2012, 4:04 PM edit delete reply
@AlfaFoxtail: More like the Bankers... without high security then their very profitable leverage game cannot be played... and paper ticket money would actually have to be backed with something exchangeable, e.g., gold and silver.

Of course the politicians benefit as well...

The obvious consequence of this is that next time someone honest discovers a security flaw, they simply won't tell.
