Oh, at first Jennifer called it "Wonder"?
Now, it is called "Wall".
Hm... ok.

Good catch, I thought it said "Wonder" but that was just the Wednesdays of Wonder tag wrapping down to the next line.

2nd Panel: perhaps the best art of Kaye yet.
Two "Yay"s, one "Hey!" and an essay. Still counting.

I gotta say I am blown away that none of the other grew aren't starting to get really antsy, now that things are starting to look more and more like this: http://www.pasteldefender.com/to%20save ... 20199.html http://www.pasteldefender.com/to%20save ... 20200.html

How can they just sit there and take orders having seen what might come to pass, and how it seems like that event is close to happening... what with an increasingly creepy Kay and all saying she's going to save our poor girl in the tank there then yelling she'll never let her out?

I suspect that Kay might be pulling a Dr. Godan here, after all, all red life isn't really real acording to her. :twisted:

Actually, our crew is doing vastly better in questioning things than most people ever would. I know this for a fact:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milgram_experiment

Humans tend to follow the rolls they are given, once those roles are set, even if it is not in their own interests. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_prison_experiment

Humans think they are self determining, but they very seldom are, they respond to authority, to Greyback, just like any ape does, with obeisance. Kaye, for all her faults, is a mysterious, high tech authority figure, her uniform is her strange seeming species and her status as leader, and the roles have all been carefully set by her from the moment of meeting our crew members. She knows these things too.

However, sometimes people can only be pushed so far. It takes a lot... but if there is ever perceived mistreatment of a harsh enough type, or over a long enough period....

The point that it feels like you've been trying to push for quite some time is that Kaye underestimates Pho's awareness of social manipulation. He is a trained spy, and he's been observing her with much more interest than she seems to be aware. I suppose what I'm saying is that it seems that the "humans follow roles" rule is much less true if the humans are consciously aware of who is pushing them into what roles, and Pho is trained to recognize this.

It's alive... ALIVE!!!!!!

As for Pho... Well, we know this Kaye is the exception, and this Texto is the exception, what about this Pho? As averages collect together, what percentage of normal 'sensible' crew prevents Kaye from leaving? Maybe they're all exceptional, and only because of the highly unlikely state of them ALL being so exceptional, they were the only group to leave...

HA! I love Vola's reaction to Virtue. The guy deserves a bit o' fun poked at him everyone once in a while. :mrgreen:
....
Oh, hello, "Alternate Universe" Kay-Wai! What's that, you say? You've been reading the comic too? What do you think about today's strip?

0-0 "I look fabulous! Yippee! And that Pho....Gosh! Sexy!" @,@
>.< "Now, I know things are are getting all dark and icky in the universe you all are following. Aeala told me you need some cheering up and stuff!
^v^
"I'm real good at that!"

Time for a pertinent happy happy blast from the past in the form of http://unicornjelly.com/alt102.html !!!

The next strip, http://unicornjelly.com/alt103.html, has a very interesting detail...What's that Kay's holding in her little psuedopod that she's using to find Yasui and Millian? WELL. http://pasteldefender.com/to%20save%20her%20092.html, as well as this mysterious device: http://pasteldefender.com/to%20save%20her%20279.html

Jennifer, I am frightened by your ability to imagine universes inside your head in full.

I like Chou's expression. I get this nice wafting sense of "Oh for cryin' out loud, Kay, it wasn't like I put YOU in the grinder, gluh." off her.
