Like getting take out for the big game.
Getting your nerd on huh h.r.?
He’s going in… wow. But who’s the other tube for?
Carol? If so, it might be interesting when she finds out.
anyone else suddenly making a link to Caroline and Portal 2?
Welp. Evil time.
Doo doo doo doo
Can’t kludge this.
Been pushing my theory that D is Ardaic, and Carol is Bandit.
Oh sweet “I-told-you-so” internet victory lap, I can sense your presence.
You are kind of smelly, by the way, you should shower.
Better yet, H.R. is Iwatani, carol is Iver.
But they haven’t installed the tubes yet.
Now, assuming they’re the ones who go in, they might take over these characters….unless these characters are some of the player characters?
They can play player chars if they want… supposedly already doing that.
Remember he was talking about the Four interacting with non-immersives, so there must be a way to interact with the game without getting in a bacta tank.
Extra spicy tofu, the diet of mad scientist everywhere.
It’s my favorite.
Augh, this guy.
The spice extends life. The spice expands consciousness. The spice is vital to server transfers.
THE SPICE MUST FLOW!
Damn, I should have changed my username to “Baron Harkonnen” for that.
I must not pun.
puns are the mind-killer.
a pun is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my pun.
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 pun has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
my pun is a killing word.
Do not fear the pun. Let it out. Share. Permit everypun to enjoy it.
It is by tofu alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of nahm bplah that thoughts acquire speed, the breath acquires stink, the stink becomes a warning. It is by tofu alone I set my mind in motion.
The humor of this thread is beginning to paul. Are we dune yet?
We are now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_Is5_sD72M
That’s me on the right. I really wanted to kill Sting Feyd but Paul was all “RAWRRRR!!1″ so I let him do it.
Extra spicy? He’s fscking serious this time!
And I thought I was the only one noticing the “Shit’s going down” tone on that
Carol’s probably thinking that too.
“Extra spicy, sir? You remember the…troubles you had last time, with it?”
The toilet too… it built an inexplainable hatred towards vegan food…
This is the most appropriate use of fsck as a euphemism I have ever seen.
I realized that I’ve inadvertently started reading H.R.’s voice as Cave Johnson, and Carol’s as Caroline. Is that a bad sign?
This enhances the comic tenfold. I do it too.
I’ll admit the ending credits of Portal 2 did start playing in my mind.
Mostly as a way of getting out of my head the unused, incomplete dialog from putting Caroline in against her will.
I was saying the same thing, just a moment ago!
I’m sorry sir, but ordering your TOFU extra spicy doesn’t make you any less of a little girl.
Hey now. The man’s getting on in years. Probably has to watch his cholesterol and his sodium and his fiber and all sorts of awfulness. I don’t envy that at all.
I have to interject to smack down the idea that eating Tofu is a wussy act.
Good sir, I am no herbivore. I am no carnivore.
I am an omnivore.
The truest form of power and majesty in eating is to eat all foods indiscriminately. Fear for the bean curd shows a cowardice in the face of a disturbed comfort zone. Slaughter the seitan as one would the cow. Burn the Boca Burger in the hottest pits of fire you can summon. Follow it with rabbit and a glass of carrot juice to wash it down.
In short, the truest (and if we must cling to constructs), manliest way to consume is to eat ALL the foods. We are at the top of the food chain. Grab a fork and defend your position from all who would dethrone you, flora and fauna alike.
Better still, become a humanitarian.
I find that fear for the curd is an evolved response to having a tongue with working taste buds.
But if the beans ever rise up to dispute their position at the very bottom of the chain, rest assured I will remember this conversation. And as I destroy that rebellious plant with fork and knife, I will silently admit that you were right after all.
so i think they all have to die at the same time without chance of resurrection to get them out of the game, i think.
Best’s tube is still there, wooo! Wait, wouldnt that either mean that his theory of death-makes-them-come-back is flawed, or the has already seen/predicted Best’s ressurrection? Any idea?
On a sideline: hope that spicy food wont cause them to, uh… make bubbles on the tube.
Iirc last time we visited the topic Dedelous was pretty sure Best had just moved on to yet another reality. One that he’d probably accidentally created by killing the guy and doesn’t seem to be able to find or access. Which begs the question of why this plan’s supposed to work.
She is so Bandit!
I noticed that there are only 4 server panels opened up. Would there be three if Best was still part of the group? Do the four blades comprise the metaframe that houses the ‘server’ the group is logged into (assuming Daedalus is using multiple ‘servers’ to accommodate their user base)? Does the Pad Thai guy know that he is delivering food to possibly the most awesome MMO ever?
Questions, questions ….
*would there be five — damn I need to proof what I write first ….
Every DM has uttered that phrase at some point: “if they survive through THIS one…”
Sorry, HR, extra spicy isn’t going to help you at all.
If they come out of those tubes, he better have a really good way to talk them down. I mean, come on – they’ve been immersed in this, much more fully than HR intended, but he’s going to have to kill them to get them out…
Assuming they even survive being removed from the game, of course.
But, what kind of conversation…?
I just looked for the “Dun Dun DUNNNN” sound effect on the last panel.
So sad that it wasn’t there.
Will have to settle for Jean-luc’s awesome comment chain.
Haha, I was thinking, “Where’s Jean-luc?”
I heard his glasses shine… and a toned down string-4 playing in the background.
AUGH OPEN YOUR MOUTH.
Not going to happen. He lives with his mouth closed. One day he’ll die with his mouth closed. But right now he’s going to eat his tofu pad thai with his mouth closed. And I am so glad it’s going to be off panel when it happens.
please. pleaseplease. ohgodpleasepleasepleasedon’thaveh.r.getinanimmersiontubeaftereatingspicytofu.itissogrossto think ..of.. …and… waitaminit.
Seriously; H. R. knows how this whole thing works. The spicy tofu is only for set up. Whoever winds up in the tube is gonna hafta go through at least a “no foods past 6pm and only water until the doctor says so” not to mention an I.V. for nutrients for the duration of the immersion. Does anyone really think H.R. is gonna give up control and go in himself? Nahhh… he will send in someone he can control from where he is. He’s got agents.
Am I the only one who thought Spaceballs on this one?
“I’m going in there!”
“He’s going in there…I wouldn’t.”
Hey, so unrelated to today’s strip, but I can’t find the link to the forums (and I’m too lazy to sign up, anyways):
Has it occurred to anybody that maybe Scipio is a gold farming bot? That’s why he’s so silent.
