highlander55 9th Jul 2013, 6:31 PM edit delete reply

With everything else she has been covering a good bit of smurf language why hold back on saying Dick?
Ok maybe Bitch is more likely.
Centcomm 9th Jul 2013, 6:34 PM edit delete reply

"zero" means "stupid child"
CyberSkull 9th Jul 2013, 6:45 PM edit delete reply

Oh, I thought it meant ████ or █████ ██████.
Centcomm 9th Jul 2013, 6:49 PM edit delete reply

big yellow bars?
Don B. 9th Jul 2013, 6:54 PM edit delete reply
As this comment section doesn't shy away from curse words...I'm not sure if I want to know what those bars are covering :P
Centcomm 9th Jul 2013, 6:59 PM edit delete reply

hey I* want to know :D it might be good stuff hiding in there !
Sheela 9th Jul 2013, 9:50 PM edit delete reply

ooOooohhh ... is it chocolate ?
I bet he's hiding chocolate behind those bars !!

GIMME ! >_<
highlander55 9th Jul 2013, 6:57 PM edit delete reply

Ada- "I'm sorry Teedee's being such a stupid child about this"! Teedee- " I'll Stupid child your ass"! Ummm! It just don't do it, does it?
Centcomm 9th Jul 2013, 6:59 PM edit delete reply

hehe hey shes ticked.. so shes proably just making a retort because she can..
highlander55 9th Jul 2013, 7:02 PM edit delete reply

She is beyond ticked. She has something stuck sideways up her exhaust pipe that's for sure! LOL. If she keeps going on it could be somebody's boot also.
Centcomm 9th Jul 2013, 7:18 PM edit delete reply

yes but whos I wonder.. :D
Dragonrider 9th Jul 2013, 7:30 PM edit delete reply

Ada could probably get away with it, for about 2 seconds. TeeDee is beginning to remind me of my kids when they we about 2 years old.
Centcomm 9th Jul 2013, 7:56 PM edit delete reply

just NOW?
Sheela 9th Jul 2013, 9:47 PM edit delete reply

Well, she is getting really into a good ranting mood, and she hasn't thrown herself down on the floor screamin' "I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna" ad nauseum ... so there's a bit ways to go until she's at the terrible two stadium, just yet.
Dragonrider 10th Jul 2013, 5:42 AM edit delete reply

Yeah just now, until now I put her in the category of a petulant teen-age drama queen angsting over not being selected as Home Coming Queen.
cattservant 9th Jul 2013, 7:54 PM edit delete reply

Sailor TeeDee!

["Ahta" (?)]

Rashala 9th Jul 2013, 7:55 PM edit delete reply

*waits to watch TEdee Burn through about 8 of Cat's Nine lives for that one*
Centcomm 9th Jul 2013, 7:56 PM edit delete reply

hehe for what .. she swears all the time .. hes right!
Centcomm 9th Jul 2013, 7:55 PM edit delete reply

hehehe - Ahta is where they are headed..
cattservant 9th Jul 2013, 8:12 PM edit delete reply

That's a "Yes!" answer isn't it?

[Be kind, a hint perhaps? Is it a relic name or somewhere post-apocalyptic?]
Centcomm 9th Jul 2013, 8:38 PM edit delete reply

both... :D try saying it out loud a few times - you might make the connection :D
cattservant 9th Jul 2013, 8:50 PM edit delete reply

I have an idea but I don't think old Henry Hudson would recognize the place!
Dragonrider 10th Jul 2013, 5:43 AM edit delete reply

Atlanta? Augusta? Atlantic City?
Antonious 10th Jul 2013, 4:53 PM edit delete reply

Ah - Ta...Wa =Ottawa?
Centcomm 10th Jul 2013, 5:05 PM edit delete reply

DING DING DING! congrats you have solved the name game! yes you are totally correct.
Stormwind13 10th Jul 2013, 5:06 PM edit delete reply

Well AHTA is the American Horticultural Therapy Association, based in Denver, Colorado. That is near New Troy's location; however, I think they won't be heading there. :-)

As from the way it is pronounced though, I would think it might be near Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. :-)

And that would make some sense from where they came from and toward where they ultimately are going.

(Edit, well darn it. I was looking things up and someone beat me to it. :-p)
Centcomm 10th Jul 2013, 5:08 PM edit delete reply

Yep and Dolly was near chigago when we left her.. team two has passed her and left her behind
Stormwind13 10th Jul 2013, 5:29 PM edit delete reply

They went thru Steeltown at some point, would that have been Youngstown, Ohio? Or is it Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania? Or is it Detroit, Michigan?

I could see any of them being Steeltown; however, I think I have them in order of likelihood.

Anyone have any other thoughts on where outposts are located?
Sheela 11th Jul 2013, 5:20 AM edit delete reply


Steeltown ?
Centcomm 11th Jul 2013, 7:29 AM edit delete reply

that would be steel canyon in rhodes island
from COH .. and it could be a bit of a homage name :D
Sheela 11th Jul 2013, 9:13 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, I guessed it was a homage.

Been fiddling with City of Heroes these last few days ... someone made a program that lets you play with the chracter editor and run around in zones.

Can't attack anything, or use any powers, or use doors, or use anything clickable (including zone border) - but it has a build in flying mode and you can (try to) load any map in the game and run around and feel nostalgic. XD

It's a tad on the unstable side, but it's still kinda fun. :)
Centcomm 11th Jul 2013, 7:28 AM edit delete reply

Steeltown is whats left of Detroit Mich.. we skipped that location in the story.. :P
Sheela 11th Jul 2013, 9:13 AM edit delete reply

Oh ?
why the skippage ?
Centcomm 11th Jul 2013, 9:37 AM edit delete reply

nothing really happens there and it would have dragged down the story. :P it took place during the Dolly and Ceci segment.
cattservant 9th Jul 2013, 8:05 PM edit delete reply

When they say "Zero", Ada means one thing and TeeDee means quite another!*

*(I believe it was stated that TeeDee was an amateur military historian.)
Centcomm 9th Jul 2013, 8:38 PM edit delete reply

a bit.. she likes guns and things that go BOOM!
Sheela 9th Jul 2013, 9:52 PM edit delete reply

I think the fun thing, is that despite TeeDee's ranting, there's no doubt that right now, Ada is calling the shots, but she's still trying to make TeeDee see reason. But she's definately in the mother role and TeeDee is in the "petulant child" role.

It's a good thing that Ada is so patient, because if she ever actually got really angry ... erhh ... TeDee watch out !! o.O
Guest 10th Jul 2013, 4:32 AM edit delete reply
I would love to see Ada spank her like the spoiled brat she is.
Centcomm 10th Jul 2013, 4:40 AM edit delete reply

Oh yes Ada DOES have a temper. she just has a HUGE industrial delay on it and it takes a LOT to blow a fuse on her..
Stormwind13 10th Jul 2013, 5:12 PM edit delete reply

I think I would pay good MONEY to see Ada spank TeeDee (and she SORELY deserves it right now).

She has a right to be upset, but she is taking it out on people that had NOTHING to do with the decision.

And her attitude could endanger everyone, which is beyond petulant and into selfishly stupid. That (in my opinion) is deserving of a good spanking!
Sheela 11th Jul 2013, 9:14 AM edit delete reply

Spankings ?
Where ?

Mayyday 9th Jul 2013, 10:51 PM edit delete reply

Some of these complaints seems somewhat familiar...
Centcomm 10th Jul 2013, 4:31 AM edit delete reply

heh - do they now.. they arent disimmilar to ones ive heard from people that find themselves in bad situations.
Draginbeard 9th Jul 2013, 11:44 PM edit delete reply

Another great page. I had a bit of an emotional response to TeeDees behavior.

Personality wise, I think Kali is more personable than TeeDee. Ada has the patience of an.... ok, lm going to say Angel, but l mean the spiritual kind.

TeeDee may have had a rough time, and I'm all for cutting her some slack, but sympathy and understanding only go so far. Even I want to shoot her in the face at this point.

I miss Dolly. I think she is my favorite character.
Centcomm 10th Jul 2013, 4:34 AM edit delete reply

Kali is used to dealing with politics and putting on a "game face" she DOES have a temper its just on a long long fuse. and people tend to DIE when she snaps. she doesnt yell and scream and throw a tantrum she just "handles" it.

TD has .. issues . shes never been good with athority figures. and she tends to be LOUD, and crass- also the situation with her is rapidly coming to a head.

on Ada - is it any wonder Teedee saw her as a "angel of mercy" in her loading dream?

and Dolly seems to be a favorite of many people - fear not we will get back to her :D
velvetsanity 10th Jul 2013, 6:16 AM edit delete reply

Ada has the loving patience of Belldandy, and Teedee the temper of Skuld (if you've seen the anime Ah! My Goddess)
Marcus Ramesy 10th Jul 2013, 9:47 AM edit delete reply

good analogy
velvetsanity 10th Jul 2013, 11:03 AM edit delete reply

Thank you. My impression of Ada has from the start been "Belldandy".
Marcus Ramesy 10th Jul 2013, 4:17 PM edit delete reply

glad to know im not the only one that likes that anime.
velvetsanity 10th Jul 2013, 6:42 PM edit delete reply

It's one of my all-time favorites ^_^
Nobody 10th Jul 2013, 1:51 AM edit delete reply
It's true that she's being stubborn, but that doesn't mean she's wrong.

Somebody modified her body without asking, in a way she doesn't like, and even in a way that goes the opposite direction of what she wants.

And now somebody else is trying to do more of the same again.
Centcomm 10th Jul 2013, 4:37 AM edit delete reply

exactly .. someone has modified her in a way that is the polar opposite of her core belifes... take someone thats utterly shy and stuff them into a G-string and out on the street. and you will begin to understand her internal anger. and shame.
and TD tends to respond with words .. LOTS of them..
mjkj 10th Jul 2013, 9:51 AM edit delete reply

...better with words than with action...
Centcomm 10th Jul 2013, 11:15 AM edit delete reply

when she crosses into action .. get out the bodybags and mops...
mjkj 10th Jul 2013, 1:35 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, hopefully then one has enough bodybags...

...or (if one got too close) one might not need to worry about that anymore because one is one of the bodies...
Sheela 10th Jul 2013, 4:13 PM edit delete reply

Ah .. we may need more bodybags then, there's kittens in the line of fire!

(WARNNG : Link is Very Sad - it will hit you hard in the feels!!)
mjkj 10th Jul 2013, 4:48 PM edit delete reply

poor kittens ... wait, Teedee would never hurt (real) kittens...
Centcomm 10th Jul 2013, 5:04 PM edit delete reply

Teedee has never SEEN a real cat - let alone a kitten.. I cant even watch the vid.. it hurts too much.
Sheela 11th Jul 2013, 12:13 AM edit delete reply

Aw .. did it hit you in the feels ?

.. and, there aren't cats in the future ?
What kind of bleak society is that ?
mjkj 11th Jul 2013, 12:26 AM edit delete reply

Well, at least dogs are still present (well, watchdogs at the very least :P )
Centcomm 11th Jul 2013, 7:32 AM edit delete reply

most normal dogs and cats passed into memory along with many many other species... they have been trying to bring them back. though genetic engineering ...

and yes it hit me hard in the feels
Sheela 11th Jul 2013, 9:15 AM edit delete reply

Aw, I can't imagine a world without dogs & cats.

And sorry about hitting you in the feels, but on the upside, the kitten is alive and well .. it got adopted after the filming.
Centcomm 11th Jul 2013, 10:05 AM edit delete reply

I did see that .. But the mother kitty just made me sick.
Sheela 11th Jul 2013, 10:19 AM edit delete reply

Ah yes ... people of today are unusually sensitive to death.

Death is, after all, a natural part of life.
Centcomm 11th Jul 2013, 10:27 AM edit delete reply

isnt that really.. Its just sad ya know?
Hornet 10th Jul 2013, 6:22 AM edit delete reply
TeeDee should have been transferred into a terminator and not the pretty one from 3 or the giant gate-guarding walker.
Centcomm 10th Jul 2013, 9:06 AM edit delete reply

shes ok with looking female.. as long as she doesnt look HUMAN. or .. totally human.. she actually liked her old body.
KarToon12 10th Jul 2013, 12:03 PM edit delete reply

"She's being such a zero."

So androids have their own "curse words" too?
Centcomm 10th Jul 2013, 12:31 PM edit delete reply

yep they do - a lot of slang is driven off threre origins .. same as Lynn saying "Mag" for "awesome or cool" its actually shortened from Magnificent..
Zero meaning "dumb child"
Posi-brain meaning thinking in a flat line and not looking at options - it also can just mean dumb or silly.

there are other slang you will encounter too..
Caley Tibbittz Collopy 23rd Jul 2013, 10:30 AM edit delete reply

Ah yes, the Giveafuck Belt; so named for the great explorer Richard Von Giveafuck III.
Mark_L_A 12th Aug 2015, 8:57 PM edit delete reply

Just figured out what a ZERO is.

A new Android is put in a type "Zero" body until they learn enough and are mature enough to upgrade to a new body.

Hence being a "Zero" means TeeDee is being a baby.
Centcomm 12th Aug 2015, 9:04 PM edit delete reply

DING DING yeppers!
Mark_L_A 12th Aug 2015, 10:23 PM edit delete reply

Thankee Ma'am, do I get a Prize ;)
Centcomm 12th Aug 2015, 10:48 PM edit delete reply

*hands him a cookie* :D
Mark_L_A 12th Aug 2015, 10:58 PM edit delete reply

Yummm cookie....

NO!! Sheela MINE!
Speedy Marsh 13th Nov 2016, 9:46 AM edit delete reply
Ada must be REALLY ticked at TeeDee, to call her a Zero. TeeDee hates that she looks like a human child. Calling her an android child "zeros" out the one part of her that she feels is superior.

Ada is mixing a margarita in an open wound. (or, whatever the equivalent would be, for a wound in bioplastic)
Chris D 3rd Oct 2015, 4:17 AM edit delete reply
Wow, this bitch needs some robo ritalin, and she needs it YESTERDAY. Her combat prowess is her ONLY strength. Everything else about her would ruin the mission immediately.
Steven-Vincent 4th Oct 2015, 7:38 PM edit delete reply

I think the slang is one of the nicest touches about this comic. 'Being a Zero,' etc. It makes the world feel lived-in.
Mark_L_A 28th Oct 2015, 12:44 PM edit delete reply

Cent and Rose have built a unique world which we are allowed to visit and in some small cases actually contribute to.

You never know when something that was brought up in the comment section makes it into the actual canon of the story.
