I was wondering when someone would notice Ms. Badluck's less than optimal condition...

On a somewhat similar subject, first aid for androids must have a certain complexity. Pain for instance; do you administer an analgesic or change an equation?

Andriods feel pain - they can "damp" it somewhat - and thats what Ceci is doing . but the nerves are still screaming

So to treat the burn; a topical agent would be applied and perhaps a dressing? Is infection any kind of a potential problem?
Centcomm 27th Jul 2012, 10:21 PM edit delete reply

they are pretty resistant to infections but bugs mutate .. so anything is possible , same basic first aid /care as a human

I think 'molds' might be more troublesome than bacteria in general.

Good point. A nylon-eating bacterium was first recognized in the 1970s, and this story is set over a thousand years from now... Plenty of time for microorganisms that can metabolize all kinds of plastics and other manufactured byproducts to evolve.

The smaller, outlaying communities of Earth probably have to deal with such things far more often than the big cities. And despite having fewer resources, they might have found some ingenious solutions. When the tech that keeps you alive (filters your water / air, grows your food, etc.) starts to fall apart, you're going to try <i>anything</i> to fix it; nevermind what the manual says is or isn't possible.

@wright1: This seems to work for comments on Comic Fury.

I also wonder if Dolly is going to recognize that she needs to sit down with CeCi and thoroughly clarify communications. Not to mention a comprehensive inventory of assets and capabilities...
Centcomm 27th Jul 2012, 10:33 PM edit delete reply

Proably a good idea..
Fairportfan 28th Jul 2012, 1:12 AM edit delete reply

I'd say that the problem there might be that CeCi herself doesn't know what she's got.
cattservant 28th Jul 2012, 1:57 PM edit delete reply

'Cent-Comm Override' would probably respond if Dolly ordered her to.
cattservant 27th Jul 2012, 8:54 PM edit delete reply

And: "Quiet, Kim!"; Pay attention! There is interesting, and quite possibly valuable, information to be learned here!

Dolly has a hard time "staying" mad at someone whos not doing something on purpose..

Which is a large part of what made her a good enough nanny to stay with the Taylors for *how* long now? :D

Over 50 years, I believe velvet. Nanny, mother figure, bodyguard and all around troubleshooter. :-)

This is what happens when do you don't maintain your comely plasma welder.

I JUST figured out the "It wasn't me" was Kim, and the "Quiet Kim" was Breaker.

You are probably aware of it but it is causing a problem with us newbies and our first run throughs.

Since you renumbered the strips rather than leaving gaps the links in the comments now point to future strips (such as cattservant's link to page 716 while this is only page 651), and could be spoilers. Writing a script to find them wouldn't be too hard but knowing the correct page is beyond me.

BTW, you are still(!) destroying my work schedule! And I just figured out I am less than half way through. Why do you have to be so prolific? And so good! One or the other, but both!

*Somebody* has to set some sort of standard for CG comics...gods know that lazy twit who makes TMI won't...he'd rather spend his time bot-voting on TWC to get readers so he can get paid by the ad-banner people for hits...
