"Has a sad..."
Yes indeed, the filters are off line!

yups! I has a sad...

Sometimes masks are there to protect us.

yes - thats very true!

Now if yoda was there he would understand everything he is saying. This is a panel that begs to be studied as it gives out so much. Layers of information all jumbled together to seem like gibberish but none of it is.

you sir have a excellent eye!

Lynn's subtext for page 878:
[clench, Clench, CLENCH!
as her eyes gradually turn yellow...]

We've just had a fascinating discussion about bathrooms. Also, I am the least mature adult on the face of the Earth.

Cent mentioned that a few of the "facilities" were damaged during the fighting when Livius's men stormed the place.

So now I'm picturing some random maintenance guy or technician sitting on the crapper reading the paper, taking a nice peaceful dump, and suddenly Livius kicks the stall door in and riddles him with lead in mid-movement.

Then, in the aftermath of his DYNAMIC ENTRY, while striking his badass pose, Livius and all his commandos hear this incredibly prolonged farty blooping noise. The commandos start discreetly backing out the door while Livius stands there in a desperate attempt to maintain his badass pose with the insidious stench of death-and-fiber-driven-poop creeping through the room.
"Jesus, that guy must have LIVED on bran muffins."
*paaaaarpsplut plop plop plop*
"Okay, I know your sphincters are supposed to relax when you die, but this is just *FAAAAAARTsplash* excessive."

... laughing .. so hard.. OMG.

Retroactive Revenge!
Maybe this is what vaporized everybody for 5 klicks and not Aeneas at all?
Tokyo Rose 11th Jan 2013, 1:18 AM edit delete reply

The sheer, terrible power of Janitor Phil's gastrointestinal disorder was unleashed upon the unsuspecting populace. Aeneas sterilized the area to contain the damage. :D

That puts a stylish bow on the package!

Too, too funny but, dang you, I won't be able to get any work done, today! That image will be randomly popping into my mind from time to time causing great distraction (not to mention various and sundry drinks snorted out my nose in classic spit takes.) Speaking of which, I'm glad I wasn't sipping anything when I read that, otherwise I'd be having to clean up my desk, monitor, whatever with a rather annoyed but bemused expression on my face.
Centcomm 11th Jan 2013, 3:35 PM edit delete reply

I had much the same reaction when I saw that..

I sense heavy foreshadowing in Aeneas's riddles, here. He's meant to be speaking nonsense, but we know that he's just an insane (thanks to being broken) genius.

Meaning that his words (despite seeming like complete gibberish) very likely hold deep meaning--
Such as the line about Centcomm and Deep Blue not being aware of all the wildcards.

He clearly knows more than most (heck, if I had to guess, I'd say more than all) characters, but merely can't convey it all clearly. :P
cattservant 10th Jan 2013, 10:31 PM edit delete reply

He's playing his own game too.
Centcomm 10th Jan 2013, 10:53 PM edit delete reply

@ranger - good sir .. you know your stuff as always :D :D
Rashala 10th Jan 2013, 11:41 PM edit delete reply

Like the hybrids that pilot the cylon basestars.... people think all they say is gibberish but it had a deeper meaning
EdInFresno 10th Jan 2013, 10:42 PM edit delete reply

Yep. This just keeps gettin' "betterer 'n' betterer", as Snowflake would say. :)
Centcomm 10th Jan 2013, 10:54 PM edit delete reply

heeh! thank you :D
cattservant 10th Jan 2013, 11:04 PM edit delete reply

I think I have an insight about why the 'fox' was in the hen house pilfering eggs way back when.
Centcomm 11th Jan 2013, 1:06 AM edit delete reply

go right ahead we love hearing grassy knoll storys :D
cattservant 11th Jan 2013, 1:20 AM edit delete reply

(Yeah, I'll let the sheep out for a snack.)

Decimus and Aeneas seem to have an area of synchronicity in their long term planing, even if the goals are quite opposite.
Decimus wants access to the millitary tech so he can mess with everybody.
Aeneas wants it so nobody will mess with him, thank you!

Ah, a true Malkavian mind right there! Referencing a little Frank Herbert even.

Well, Roma is pretty much the most disturbing place Dr. Seuss never thought of!
Tokyo Rose 11th Jan 2013, 1:08 AM edit delete reply

Why thank you :)
Death2Bravo 11th Jan 2013, 3:48 AM edit delete reply

Any observant person who deals with the mentally ill will tell you that seeming gibberish is full of meaning. Take everything at face value and make your assessment accordingly. It just may save your life.
Centcomm 11th Jan 2013, 10:09 AM edit delete reply

yep truer words were never spoken :D

"Everyone in this room is wearing a uniform, and don't kid yourself."

Frank Zappa to a heckler.
Centcomm 11th Jan 2013, 10:09 AM edit delete reply

heh - indeed .. uniforms it is!
KarToon12 11th Jan 2013, 9:53 AM edit delete reply

He's very right. We all wear masks, even if we don't realize it. We might act a certain way around our parents, but it's not the same way we act around our friends or co-workers. We all have multiple masks we put on for different situations.
Centcomm 11th Jan 2013, 10:08 AM edit delete reply

yep .. thats exactly right.. we see it every day and dont think about it.
cattservant 11th Jan 2013, 9:58 AM edit delete reply

Panel 3:
Lynn's lower lip looks like
it's about to tremble.
Centcomm 11th Jan 2013, 10:08 AM edit delete reply

yep shes actually quite scared and worryed.. but trusts Acantha..
cattservant 11th Jan 2013, 10:14 AM edit delete reply

You're up early.
Kitty being insistent?
Mine certainly are!
Centcomm 11th Jan 2013, 11:11 AM edit delete reply

hehe its not that early its 1pm for me..
Dragonrider 11th Jan 2013, 1:20 PM edit delete reply

Uhhh are we sure this guy should be fixed? he seems to have eaten some magnet-o's for breakfast.
Centcomm 11th Jan 2013, 3:34 PM edit delete reply

hehe he does seem to have a few loose doesnt he :D
Dragonrider 11th Jan 2013, 6:56 PM edit delete reply

OK now now he is quoting the Bene Gesserit making baaaad puns, and generally being obnoxious, somewhere he has to have a core he can draw on to center his matrix.
Centcomm 11th Jan 2013, 7:01 PM edit delete reply

heheh - nice you guys are certainly getting the refernces .. and some of this "centering" you will see shortly ..
Dragonrider 12th Jan 2013, 8:17 AM edit delete reply

Let us hope it is soon, preferably well before Lynn totally goes Grape Ape on him and Acantha both. In this current "mood swing" that would not bode well for her possibilities of continuing to exist in the land of the living.
Centcomm 12th Jan 2013, 9:57 PM edit delete reply

yep Lynn really needs to be careful .. but whats her record so far?
cattservant 12th Jan 2013, 6:17 AM edit delete reply

hehe get a fur fix! :D

Furpendicular & Purrizontal! >^~~^<---
Rashala 12th Jan 2013, 4:21 PM edit delete reply

PErsonally.. I think the -damage- that was done to this guy merely effected his ability to control soem of the turrets and such -not- his intelligence but He decided the fool as one woudl say to keep people of balance and wary, and mostly discount him as a real player
Centcomm 12th Jan 2013, 11:54 PM edit delete reply

the damage "has" affected his ability to commuicate and process some things.. and his control of others.. sadly he is well aware of the entire situation..
cattservant 12th Jan 2013, 11:56 PM edit delete reply

Centcomm 13th Jan 2013, 12:00 AM edit delete reply

yep .. almost 100! *gleee* dances in the ailes :D
DeathBuhda 28th Jan 2014, 12:11 PM edit delete reply

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing......Only I will remain.
Centcomm 28th Jan 2014, 1:50 PM edit delete reply

there ya go.. perfectly said :D
DeathBuhda 28th Jan 2014, 5:53 PM edit delete reply

well, only as perfect as copy/paste allows :-P
