hmmmm.... Rose and Duct tape... that's really frightening if you think about it even a little!

In the scheme of things:
1. Gravity
2. The electro-weak force
3. The strong nuclear force
4. The 'usable force' force
5. Duct tape

Is this just the list of things that are frightening if you think about them, or is this the list of things that Rose can really frighten you with?
megados 13th Jun 2017, 8:02 PM edit delete reply

If she wants to be, Rose can be frightening with a tribble!
antrik 14th Jun 2017, 12:02 PM edit delete reply
Aren't they called puff-balls in this universe? ;-)
megados 14th Jun 2017, 7:47 PM edit delete reply

First seen in Star Trek TOS "The trouble with Tribbles", the tribbles are little furry fuzz ball animals. They also made a couple of appearances on DS9 also, I believe, and possibly others.
Centcomm 14th Jun 2017, 7:53 PM edit delete reply

yes and no.. Puffballs are furry things like tribbles .. but they have one faceted eye spot.
megados 11th Jun 2017, 9:31 PM edit delete reply

If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape . . .

Jeebas Cent, did you horde up all the bad luck? :(
*hugs Terri*

@Rose, let her chatter a while! (Re alt text: Did you even not make up the part about the duct tape?)
Tokyo Rose 12th Jun 2017, 12:15 AM edit delete reply

Nope. Mister Black really did go get it from the cabinet when I muttered about the gauze.
megados 13th Jun 2017, 8:39 PM edit delete reply

Good man. Always know where your duct tape is.

Soooooooo, how do we feel about the nickname Toothless?
HiFranc 11th Jun 2017, 11:40 PM edit delete reply

Now, I have images of a really fast black dragon.
Timotheus 11th Jun 2017, 11:07 PM edit delete reply

That's funny. I have the exact same jaw condition. I keep about six gauze wrapped frozen ice packs in my freezer for infection flare ups. Some day I'll get the remnants removed.
I do hope that was sugar free Dr Pepper (less chance of infection). But it's true that dark carbonated soda does help for some reason.

Poor Cent...

I hope you are well now...

Rashala 11th Jun 2017, 11:39 PM edit delete reply

Oh just wait the real pain still to come tooth shard out of the soregumsthen the replacements oooooooo yeah rose keep that duct tape handy!
Tokyo Rose 12th Jun 2017, 12:18 AM edit delete reply

Cent did have one small tooth sliver work its way out in the lower jaw, but that was the only real speed bump. And apparently, getting those teeth out removed an entire layer of chronic pain that Cent hadn't been fully aware of until it wasn't there any more.
Sheela 12th Jun 2017, 3:31 PM edit delete reply

Chronic pain is weird like that.
Somehow you manage to zone it out for years, and then suddenly when it's gone you're all like you just woke up, and are all like "huh ? is this what the world is like?"
Centcomm 13th Jun 2017, 10:17 AM edit delete reply

yep.. and then i got to deal with a heart attack later that year.. so FML...

Correct usage of #FML has been detected !

*hugs*
HiFranc 11th Jun 2017, 11:52 PM edit delete reply

Nothing wrong with being a chatterbox. If I know someone well, I can be one.

Ps.
From what I've heard, bondage tape is probably better for that task. ;-)
HiFranc 11th Jun 2017, 11:58 PM edit delete reply

When when you said "tablet" and Dr Pepper, I imagined you tapping a pill against a bottle like an old-fashioned wireless operator. It was on my 3rd reading that I realised that tablet had a capital "T".

I'm just glad this was done in stick figures and not digital 3D with graphical realism.
megados 12th Jun 2017, 7:33 AM edit delete reply

As an aside, in this, and the other stick figure adventures by Rose, it might just be the angle, but I can't help but notice that you (Cent and Rose) have gorgeous hair! Any secrets you'd like to share? XD
Tokyo Rose 12th Jun 2017, 7:55 AM edit delete reply

Scribbles. Lots of scribbles.

More like A History of Misadventures in Dentistry... Were Terri's childhood dentists called Christian Szell or Orin Scrivello, by any chance?? Far too many dental surgeons seem to take as their motto "Fuck you and your pain, I'm a dentist!" ...when they're not following the motto "Your mouth is my goldmine." *sigh* It makes you want to reach for a malpractice suit, specifically this one, *holds up ornate all-concealing black hooded cloak* and do a quick organ rendition of War March of the Priests before getting to work... >C=)> (skull-faced Doctor Phibes Goat)

Many years ago, in what was then my hometown, we had a dentist like that, and he was The Only Dentist in town. To add to your description, it was not uncommon for him to be intoxicated to some extent as well. Needless to say, many people there had a shared fear/hatred of dentists. Upon his passing, there was an unmistakable sound of celebration wafting on the passing breeze.
Rms2000 12th Jun 2017, 3:49 AM edit delete reply

Hey, so... interesting factoid. When I asked my dentist about this funny idea I had, he said that they (he wasn't real specific on who) are already working on it! It's a system whereby they take a cell, possibly of the stemcell variety, perform some black magic on it, and then implant it into the jawbone to grow into a new tooth. So, the upshot of this is that perhaps one day Soon™, we'll be able to just have regular tooth replacements instead of all this troublesome tooth maintenance. How cool does that sound?

The black magic isn't really black magic, by the way... it's just that since nobody really understands what makes a cell decide to become a certain tissue type (aside from that it has something to do with how the DNA is read between successive generations of cells during fetal development), it's a little hard to figure out how we take a cell and force it to be a tooth bud. And then there's all sorts of studies to be performed to make sure that it's safe both in the short term and in the long term and then there's even more work to make it work with reasonably affordable lab equipment, so that private practices can afford to support the procedure and so on and so forth.

So... anyway, that's something to look forward to.
Sheela 12th Jun 2017, 3:34 PM edit delete reply

That's pretty cool.
I reckon they could do the same to hair follickles too then.

... imagine the beards, women could suddenly have ?!
Rms2000 13th Jun 2017, 11:36 AM edit delete reply

Yeah. the possibilities for body modification are nearly endless... and also likely to be endlessly controversial. If you can plant a cell to grow into a new tooth, it's only a little harder to plant one to grow into a new arm, a new boob, a new stomach or any other part of human anatomy. the ability to grow new organs will be tremendously helpful, but people will likely be frightened by the concept of other people walking down the street with more limbs than they would ordinarily have. And lets not forget that Human body parts are only going to be the limit for the technology very briefly. It won't be long before we can do some gene tweaking (and/or wholesale copying) to be able to grow new tails, more accurate eyeballs and ears, denser, tougher skin (or lighter, prettier skin) and other things. Skin modifications would probably not be very popular, as the transition period would probably be slow and painful. To be fair, I suppose most large modifications would have such a transition period. Growing a new limb would be particularly awkward, as it would start small and probably wouldn't be connected to any nerves for quite a while. Even after the nerves had grown in, it would probably take months of physical therapy before the brain could talk to it, and potentially even longer before the implications of having a new limb sank in.

Of course, even if you limit people to only growing things as regular replacements, there's still a lot of good to be done, with new vital organs, new limbs for people who lost theirs or were born without, replacement eyes for people whose eyesight has waned...

On the other hand, I suppose I don't need to imagine for you the kinds of things the military could do with such techniques, so I'll leave it at that.

All I could think of for this was growing vampire fangs...
Rms2000 13th Jun 2017, 11:42 AM edit delete reply

Yeah. You could grow a whole mouth full of canines, if you wanted. On the other hand, if your doctor wasn't really careful when he was labeling his pitri dishes, you could wind up molars in the front, instead of incisors. If kids already make fun of other kids for having braces....

And now for something completely different,
.. a man with three bottocks!

Your dentist nearly choked you?? How did THAT happen?? D:
Centcomm 13th Jun 2017, 10:19 AM edit delete reply

Tokyo Rose 13th Jun 2017, 10:21 AM edit delete reply

Hey, you're mostly okay with Dr. Nia...

Cent: you are a serious badass for not giving up on this comic - or hell, even just life - despite the number and severity of painful health problems you've had to cope with.

Seriously, you are badass.
Centcomm 13th Jun 2017, 8:24 PM edit delete reply

thank you..
