Centcomm 4th Mar 2015, 1:58 AM edit delete reply

cattservant 4th Mar 2015, 12:20 AM edit delete reply

Everyone is so polite and civilized.
velvetsanity 4th Mar 2015, 12:24 AM edit delete reply

Only because drekhead hasn't opened his pie hole yet :P

Agreed, May the good doctor continue to filibuster til the dinner is over.
Centcomm 4th Mar 2015, 1:59 AM edit delete reply

I know isnt it insane :D

Cent those are awfully tall pours of wine, just saying.
Centcomm 4th Mar 2015, 1:59 AM edit delete reply

Im not actually showing the pours.. just the moments before .. :D
Thomas 4th Mar 2015, 12:14 PM edit delete reply
Ah sorry I guess I should have been clearer. I meant those glasses of wine are really, really, full in the first panel. So much so that it looks weird to me. Normally wine doesn't really get filled all the way to the top like that. At least in my experience.

If real wine can cost that much, I hate to think how much some other real drinks or food might cost. O_o
Centcomm 4th Mar 2015, 1:59 AM edit delete reply

lets just say that if its bad for you New Troy taxes it.
mjkj 4th Mar 2015, 3:06 AM edit delete reply

So, there is no mcdonalds in new troy?
Highlander55 4th Mar 2015, 8:28 AM edit delete reply
I wonder if New Rome has Little Caesars?
Thomas 4th Mar 2015, 12:17 PM edit delete reply
No, no there is but a Big Mac costs 10,000 creds, and don't even get me started on mcnuggets. A large soda costs 20,000. Therefore only the uber rich partake of mickey D's as a status symbol.

Hell, being alive is bad for you.

So it seems Setorius does legitimate work as a doctor as well as being a mad scientist. Fascinating. image
Centcomm 4th Mar 2015, 2:00 AM edit delete reply

Yep he does indeed .. hes not your typical mad scientist :D
ProfEtheric 4th Mar 2015, 12:57 AM edit delete reply

I really like Setorius, Of course, the fact that he looks a bit like Grant Morrison (who is my hero) probably helps. Also, I have a thing for mad scientists.
Centcomm 4th Mar 2015, 2:02 AM edit delete reply

Oh geez.. he does ! - That was unintended :D but it works! Actually him and Dr. Deacon might get along famously .. although Setorious works in Bio tech.. and not normally in hard tech .. He did after all make working Cat girls! He cant be ALL bad :D
ProfEtheric 4th Mar 2015, 2:39 AM edit delete reply

The fact that he works in bio would make Deacon get along with him even better (Deacon doesn't get along as well with people who share his disciplines). They could get up to ALL KINDS of mischief... er... I mean SCIENCE!
Skweeee 4th Mar 2015, 2:23 AM edit delete reply

Okay.. around my dinner table we talk about movies and stuff. I hate bringing work home!
DLKmusic 4th Mar 2015, 2:33 AM edit delete reply

Setorius is actually a surprise! I'm starting to like him. Of course, that other shoe is gonna drop any minute, and he will unleash his next abomination, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it, lol.

And as far as Petronilla goes, slave or free, she's awesome! I know waiters at 5 star restaurants that don't keep tabs of what their regulars like as well as she does! Can we keep her? please please, pretty please?

Alcohol, tobacco, and salt are heavily taxed in New Troy. But, is that so shocking? This is merely today's excise taxes and tariffs taken to an extreme.

The average person does not buy tobacco products, so they don't notice the spikes in prices. But, there is a trend among legislators, particularly since the recession, to keep piling on more excise taxes. It meets with much less opposition than raising taxes across the board.

Have sin taxes created a healthier society? Should it be used to regulate our diet and lifestyle? These days we're seeing lots of obesity, diabetes, and addictions to sweets, junk food, and pop. What's next, a tax on soda pop? Well... It sounds like they're trying to do just that.

At least in some countries they spend it wisely. In Sweden the gambling tax is to treat those with gambling problems. And there is talk of using excise to support healthcare. But today? It goes into the general fund to balance the budget. And with an economy where cities and counties can go bankrupt, who can blame them for raising excise taxes yet again?
mjkj 4th Mar 2015, 3:09 AM edit delete reply

So, do they also tax oil and grease?

(In new troy I mean...)

Here in NYC our former mayor tried to make large sodas (32oz and above)illegal. The people thought that was stupid and told him enough was enough. This was after we let him ban smoking in public parks. That's right there are places in NYC you can't smoke OUTSIDE. Don't get me wrong I'm very anti-smoking I don't think anyone should do it However banning people from smoking outside is ridiculous in my opinion.

oh boy this is gonna get Awkward FAST.....
speciallu when DEci bring out his surprise Of a certain person he plans to punish...and Max Rips his intestines out his nose.
mjkj 4th Mar 2015, 3:04 AM edit delete reply

Hmm, nice conversation...

...but I thought that only male servants were allowed in the presence of douchie...?

...and was douchie not about to bring everything downhill?

velvetsanity 4th Mar 2015, 6:40 AM edit delete reply

I think their plan is to give us a feel for how the dinner is going aside from drekhead's stupidity. Also, that's a good point regarding the servants. Is the dinner an exception due to the number of people present, or are Maxus' orders being ignored the moment he leaves the palace?
xpacetrue 4th Mar 2015, 7:43 AM edit delete reply

...Or, perhaps someone just forgot? (Perhaps not even a character?) ;)
mjkj 4th Mar 2015, 7:51 AM edit delete reply

By the way: it seems that Lynn's necklace is floating also... >_<'

They should take care that the wine isn't spiked. Or Poisoned. Or spiked and poisoned. And what sort of drunk does Deckhead make?

* "Nobody loves me... *sniff* I'd have you all brutally and publicly slain... but what's the point? *swig* Same again..."

* "<i>Amo amici!!</i> Seriously, I love you all... so much I wanna [acts that are illegal even to describe in most jurisdictions on earth redacted and expunged] aaand- gods its... past midnight... yeah.. you.. 're all such.. such good listeners, too..."

* "I'll take the lot of you on! Who's first? You, sisterbitch? You, hostage girl whatever your name is? You, baldy? You, ashyassassinface robowhore? You want some? You- ha! You nerve-strike like a f-" *thud*

I'm sure Kali is allowed to take charge and manhandle Dec or render him harmlessly unconscious in order to prevent him from coming to harm... >;=)>
velvetsanity 4th Mar 2015, 11:02 AM edit delete reply

Have you forgotten? Drekhead is the "rape his own sister" sort of drunk :/
XMinusOne 4th Mar 2015, 10:47 AM edit delete reply
This before dinner chat brings a whole new dimension to the remark "Let me tell you about my operation." New Troy's following in the footsteps of New York; they tax the bejesus out of anything fun there too.
