Last thread wend for about three months, which means we saw around 60 pages. I don't know if Jeph plans to rush through their wedding and have them be married before he gets bored with that. They'll either get married immediately or it will take years IRL for him to get back around to it.

Don't forget Sven is a bad guy because reasons. Don't doubt yourself, man. Your intuition is correct: don't take this sham phase relationship of your fickle, volatile sister seriously.

What the fuck does May know about sexual relationships? She has to strap a sex toy to herself just to participate. She always acts so worldly wise about things she literally can't have experienced and rather than calling her out on it every character just bows down to their snarky goddess.

It's because Jeph is incapable of continuity and he made robots that basically are just human beings with weird colors and screws here and there. That's it.

>my old shitty-dude ways

What, getting regular consensual sex with willing participants and walking away happy?

Is this yet another unintentional insight to Jeph's mindset? At this point I'll bet Jeph thinks jerking off is sexist.

>you realize it's possible to bang someone without makin' a fuckin' car crash outta the situation

Hadn't he already been doing this? So May is telling him to do what he's already been doing all this time?

That's it - Jeph just couldn't stand that Sven could have non-committal sex and get away with it; he's already re-written his own memories of the comic to make Sven disappear in the night after fucking Faye and leaving a note saying, "had better. bye"

It's not really inconsistent with actual hipsters, the kind of people who reach their mid-20s without leaving once NYC or whatever metropolitan area but consider themselves worldly.

>>1060392

>epic

I'm about 66% sure that this was a "hangin' with the kids" moment from Jeph, another in a long line of grossly out of touch moments such as the Minecraft let's plays. I'm a little surprised he didn't start talking about pwning or "over 9,000". The clown talk confuses me. I think it's a coincidence and he's not making a reference to clown world. It would surprise me if he were that current given what we've seen out of him. Only if the blue checkmarks are mentioning it beyond "racist clown meme".

In Jeph's world you can't even consider making a move unless you're 100% convinced she's ready to marry you before you even walk up to say "hi" for the first time. Anything else is sexual assault.

>Hahahahahahahaha How The Fuck Are Intimacy Issues Real Hahahaha Nigga Just Ask People To Fuck Like Nigga Have Casual Sex Haha

>>1060604

Sven was casual as fuck about it. He was a manwhore and Faye threw herself at him of her own volition (another detail Jeph forgot), except she was freaking out about it right from the morning after because of what others would think and whether she was ready. Her worthless therapist then convinced her that a little casual sex could help heal her crippling emotional issues. Surprise surprise Faye couldn't handle it and demanded exclusivity, but it's all Sven's fault for not signing up for that. He felt guilty, decided to stop fucking around and also caught major feelings for Faye, but that was all after the relationship was over. The point was that they both suffered for deluding themselves that they could just be best fuckbuddies.

Either Sven's warped his own memories or Jeph's retconning him into having been an asshole to get laid. He wasn't, the whole practice-date arc with Hannelore proved it. He was handsome, charming and good at reading people, so he got a lot of attention from willing women. It wasn't wrong but it didn't make him happy and he decided to look for something deeper. Lingering feelings over Faye are all that are holding him back. Now a blue robot he just met is telling him that he should go back to casual sex, i.e. undo his entire character development. And he's thinking it over like she totally has a point… what???

>>1060604

Yes, this. They couldn't maintain any casualness to that relationship, because both eventually wanted more (but not at the same time). Most people find it difficult to just switch off their emotions even when they're making things more complicated than they wanted.

Sex isn't a handshake or a high-five. It's an intimate thing, there's a degree of trust and care involved that make even the most casual fling have emotional implications. Some people seem to think the only way to combat prudes is to completely trivialize sex. Even Faye's stupid therapist noticed that's just swinging to the other extreme.

Sleeping with one guy who doesn't care about you and who you dislike makes you emotionally unstable and likely to do the same thing repeatedly.

>[sex with anyone you're attracted to is] just swinging between extremes.

So, is casual sex a good thing or not? The narrative is unclear and the whole week felt like a waste of time.

He's got bored with regular hookups, she has enough weird sex ideas to last a lifetime. In the deranged mind of a palm-perforator this is a match made in heaven.

The politically correct left constantly says things like this but they get offended over the weirdest and most unpredictable things. Even taking political affiliation out of it, it's well-known that flings and one-night stands fare poorly once talking begins. It's not "being a jerk", it's the cognitive dissonance of having sexual compatibility but being strangers otherwise.

Fucking seriously? A USB cable that can be detached? A PROPRIETARY USB cable? I can't believe this future is simultaneously so optimistic and so shitty. These robots are designed worse than vacuum cleaners. Surely you can fit a retractable or even a winding charging cable in a human-sized chassis. What about the apartment complex the nig and the autist were looking at, it has a whole robot charging floor. What, is Sven going to have to Weekend at Bernie's her to a charging station? There's no way he can go to anyone working at the bar, say they were hanging out together and ask for her charging cable, right? That would be too easy.

NO. Really? I thought for sure that would be part of the drama. How did he get it? He just went in to her (undefined) work and asked for the one thing May needs to function and they GAVE it to him?

Not to imply Jeph's worldbuilding isn't shit, but iirc he did actually answer that one. AI's brains are supposed to store data physically, like solid state drives or something. So they don't die without power, they're just left unconscious and their brain boots up and carries on where it left off when it gets juice again. Like when the cop robot was crushed, the destruction of the chassis power supply meant she was unconscious with no sense of time passing until she got power again.

Why is he a low quality man, though? He's higher status than anyone in the comic save Hannelore, who only has status due to being effectively royalty. He's even higher up than Marten's famous porn actress mother due to his mainstream success. Furthermore, he's much more compatible with May's free spirit don't-take-everything-so-seriously personality while she lives with and hangs around a bunch of squares out of economic necessity, not willing association. It's just another example of "Sven man bad" where we're supposed to hate the character because the author says to.

>>1060888

Yet it still disappoints. Even regular computers have a subconscious duality to them. The CPU is the brain, RAM is short term memory, and disk storage is long term memory. But then you have NVRAM and battery-backed BIOS, which acts as its own little system independent of the main system, even though it still needs a small fraction of those resources to operate. It would have been nice to see this kind of thing implemented by Roko being aware of the passage of time due to her battery-backed real-time clock and disoriented due to the clock falling out of sync during her downtime, even if was only a few seconds.

Sounds like memristors, but IIRC, Handstab mentioned something about crystal matrices/optical storage, which is technically feasible, but so far off in the future it is not even funny. They can, in theory, be faster than current RAM if you use million-dollar sci-fi tech. We are talking about AI, so the sci-fi tech is already there, but what about the insanely expensive (and possibly bulky) hardware? IIRC this was supposed to be post-singularity, but considering people have jobs, this sounds far from being an actual post-singularity society.

tl;dr Mr. Stabby worldbuilding sucks, and even Assault Android Cactus, a silly indie arcade twin stick shooter, has better sci-fi, lore, and justifications as to why androids exist and are the way they are simply put, the process humans use to create superintelligent mothership-piloting überAI cores generates a lot of deficient byproducts, which are then recycled into android bodies; that explains as well why most of the androids, specially Cactus, are so fucking stupid and humane.

>mean to women

This is interesting because it originally didn't make sense to me until I realised something. Everyone's berating Sven for the way he picks up women and saying he should instead simply proposition them for casual sex. Surely he was doing that if he had a reputation for excessive casual sex right? But wait! Has Jeph ever shown Sven chatting up a woman? If I recall correctly, it's always smash cuts to them in bed. I think in Jeph's mind, during the cut Sven uses some esoteric pickup artist sorcery to trick them into fucking him and that's what "being an asshole about it" means.

TL;DR Jeph created Sven as a strawman for pickup artists but can't show it onscreen because he literally can't imagine a man convincing a woman to sleep with him intentionally.


 No.1061145

>>1061138

That actually makes a lot of sense, or at least generously applies some sort of logic to an otherwise broken situation. Jeph is definitely the kind of author to have critical information in his head that is never put down on paper, all the while him expecting the audience to follow along.

What Jeph (and a lot of PUAs) don't understand is that a lot of these women aren't really being tricked. This isn't the first time some guy tried NLP, negging, making her jealous by chatting with the less attractive friend, or whatever. She just happens to think he's cute and is looking for action tonight. Simple as that.


 No.1061146

If you'll forgive the Freudposting, I believe that Sven represents the kind of man that Jeph, deep down in his unconscious, would like to be. Smart, suave, talented, successful, and popular with women. But his East Coast hipster coffeehouse programming won't let him acknowledge Sven as a superior masculine specimen, so he must constantly have the dialogue in his comic 'reveal' flaws about Sven that aren't actually extant in an effort to undermine the character without betraying the core principles his unconscious mind is deeply tied to.

>I've heard some stuff about it being highly political (muh gay rights, muh waman power) that type of shit, does it have that as well?

In one sense, not as much as it could. It's there, yeah, but mostly just as dressing. In QC's utopia, there's no need to fight for those things because as far as their world is concerned, they've already won all political battles once and for all and there remains no conflict, aside from *very* occasional mentions of things like "I heard on TV about some extremist nuts way off somewhere in the distance, they said something naughty".

He doesn't even go the David Willis route of having political villains for the heroes to fight against, every character is in 100% agreement with each other that they all have the correct political thoughts, and thus any potential conflicts or drama tend to get resolved fairly quickly.

So, on one hand, yeah it's thoroughly saturated with progressive ideology, but on the other hand, it almost never actually bothers getting preachy about it like some other webcomics do, for the sole reason that Jeph holds anyone to the right of himself in enough contempt that he won't lower himself to acknowledge them in his comic.

They started off as appliances but were suddenly retconned as human equivalents in both body and law some 7-8 years into the comic. Mentioned above, there is still consternation about this sudden switch given how abrupt and incongruent it was.

>>1062828

The working theory is that, due to Jeph's inability to handle criticism and social pressure, that he replaced humans with robots so that he could use them as proxies for social awareness issues. For example, instead of the actual tranny having body issues, one of the robots does. Instead of having a bawdy, promiscuous, black character "kept down by the man", it's a blue robot. They're just abstracted, Flanderized stereotypes that the core audience won't call out Jeph for because they're not smart enough to realize what he's doing. Instead, they're busy banning nouns from discussion because everything is offensive.

>>1062827

It's hard to believe Jeph could honestly reflect on his own work and see the guy whose life mission was to lift humanity out of eternal squalor as the villain. Given Jeph's propensity to forget his own lore, he probably thought he communicated more about the chubby Bill Gates looking guy's nefarious plans but didn't. Even then, there isn't much Bill Gates could do to top an immortal, genocidal witch who was the direct cause of humanity's suffering and kept them in that state to cover for her own failures thousands of years prior. It was actually surreal to see the revelation of Alice's irredeemable nature and have the supporting cast stand around rooted in place talking about genocide and imposing thousands of years of suffering like they were discussing the new indie music album.

Marten's mom is actually my pick for worst offender. Everyone else has the (flimsy) excuse of being a mixed-up twenty-something with no career or direction. Ms. Reed is a grown-ass adult who runs her own business and has personally been involved in numerous relationships that have gone down in spectacular flames. If anyone should be the one to pull Marten aside and say "Boy, these bitches are insane and you need to run before they realize you still have functioning legs," it should be her.

Think about it: your offspring is hopelessly head-over-heels for a girl who's such a fuck-up that she's burned down her own apartment, and has intimacy issues bad enough that she regularly assaults your child while pretending to be his friend. You have warned this girl that while you'll just watch on the sidelines for now, she better not fuck up. Then she fucks up and breaks his heart saying shit like "I'm not ready for a relationship" before fucking some man-slut. Do you A) rip this conniving bitch limb from limb, or B) tell her you understand how difficult living with the death of a parent can be and you love and support her?

Maybe one is more reasonable than the other, but it also involves throwing your own child under the bus.

Oh, it's so much worse than that - he's given up his entire sense of self.

For example - the prospect of his [girl]friend getting a job in another state that would require them to move house did make him nervous. Marten then apologised to absolutely everyone for having such a "selfish" thought.

I've noticed women boast about the value of their sexual services by discussing how they've cut off their men as punishment but they'll also lament how they haven't gotten laid in forever, "forever" being a period of about two weeks. Given sexual access is much more normalized for women compared to men, the average (median) man by default holds out for sex for longer. So when women claim that men will fall to pieces if they don't get sex twice per day while women can survive indefinitely, they're probably full of shit given that most of them haven't gone for more than a month since they were 16 or so. Put another way, a female "wizard" is vanishingly rare while the opposite is common enough to dominate news cycles for weeks at a time.

That's usually the case, but since Jeph has depicted chassis as robot-shaped cell phones it makes no sense here. May should be walking around like a goddamn Nokia.

She would fit just fine as another Pintsize, he's just a fucking retard. There are probably a million jobs for bots that she'd be better suited to even as a robo felon, just not in that body.

Do you think the average WalmartBot chassis has a higher repair bill than the average Batchelor food bill? Rent would most likely be similar, I'll count heat/AC as being the same cost as daily recharging, so the only point of contention would be food vs repairs. Large appliance repair will run you between $100 to $500 depending on what you are fixing. You can be extreme and compare it to vital function car repair, which can get in the thousands, but you shouldn't need that kind of repair every single month, so I think May's repairs will probably have a lower cost per month than a similar fellon's food bill.

If you count repairs as being similar to human hospital visits, it swings greatly in May's favor, since doctor fees and medical insurance costs will far outstrip the hourly rates that someone like Faye and Menstro charge, even if you account for the cost of parts.

Since the comic is fundamentally about relationshits now anyway this is your lead in for some actual drama between felonbot and inexplicably hetero ponytail guy. Are they a thing? If it was just physical he shouldn't have feelings for her now that she's not in a humanoid frame anymore, right? Or maybe there are some genuine feelings there and there's a platonic attraction beyond the mere physical. Plus you have a reversal were pinkbot is suddenly the sexy one.

Unless this shitty gas station is somehow not a chain, whoever's writing her schedule and appraising her work is probably getting shat on with long hours and low pay about as much as her. In most of my work experience, any manager who had some personal vice got dismissed not because it was revealed and hurt their reputation, but because it detracted from their laser focus on work.

You know what real (and mentally capable) people do when they're in situations like this? Reduce their expenses. Maybe you have to make some really shitty compromises until you can stabilize your finances. Weird renting arrangements, take home shitty food from work, whatever it takes to put some savings aside that you can use to patch each source of unnecessary expense.

Which sounds like it might not apply to robots until you remember that their ONLY EXPENSE IS THEIR CHASSIS. It consumes the power, it needs the repairs, it takes up rentable space. May could reduce her expenses to the ongoing cost of a single server rack instantly and still be able to communicate in real time with all her robot friends, in near real time with all her human friends and the dumb bitch could probably find some sort of below-minimum-wage online pseudo-work even if Jeph tried to handwave the possibility away by saying they don't buy processor time from felons because even he's not going to be dumb enough to pretend there are no black markets on the fucking internet.

I'm finding it difficult to root for it since it seems to prefer other robots to be kept in their place.

Plus, it didn't steal a pack of AA batteries - it's a selfish, aggressive asshole which tried to steal dangerous military equipment. If anything it should rightly have been reduced to one of those fucking iPods and be left in Dale's pocket.

You'd be surprised how far you can get with the "communal food" that tends to accumulate even at small workplaces. When people figure out what you're doing, they start bringing even more food because they'd rather see it eaten than thrown away.

>And now that I mention it, why isn't it still living with them?

It isn't? I thought it was. Did it move away off-screen? The living arrangements are what makes this situation especially non-engaging: this bot has literally no overhead. It survives on the goodwill of others yet still pulls a salary. Even if it's not much, it's in the black, which is a lot more than many can say.

Oh, and it gets the repairs at "friends who won't screw you" rate, not "maximize profit" rate. May actually couldn't be in a much better position, all things considered. How many ex-cons can claim to have their needs taken care of by others and to receive medical care at a wholesale rate?

Again, Jeph ironically portrays May as a realistic ex-con. In reality people are bending over backwards to accommodate while it whines, denigrates, and blames everyone around it.

So you might think, but the smaller subreddit seems even more authorotarian than the big one.

One of the first posts on the regular one (r/questionablecontent) is a post about Jeff using every character in the series as a political self-insert (making everyone a faggot, the hooker-bot quit its job because cops are evil, May getting new parts from the government is "Bernie Sanders logic", etc.). Since this is true, it's downvoted to zero (presumably it's below zero, but I don't think reddit shows negative numbers). The poster, however, thanks the subreddit for not shutting him down, saying that the other subreddit removed his post within two minutes.

They hate Sven because he's a completely functional normal person (for now) who still hasn't been absorbed by the hive mind the rest of the characters belong to.

But since there can't be actual conflict in this simulation all Sven can do is steal 40 cakes and be called evil for that but not even the reddit Jephdrones can actually find anything bad about him.

Jeph would have to actually drink the full Kool-aid tank reserve in order to antagonize Sven for something shallow like being white, cis, male and not a bottom to Tranny cock. And even if that were to happen he would disappear from the comic altogether for being too conflicting and we would come full circle with everyone being nice people apparently.

I feel Jeph should have put emphasis on "today" rather than "want". Way he's done it, it looks like Copbot's own desires are the highest priority rather than any sense of urgency. Like Copbot will frown and stamp its feet if it doesn't get what it wants.

In a business like this, there is absolutely nothing endearing about incompetence - it should get this noseless fuck fired in an instant.

The forum is very dry in general but vocal when they don't like something. Skimming the thread(s) when Sven X May was relevant, I'd say it's "dry", which is a tacit/default endorsement. I didn't check Reddit but recall it being positive.

Regarding seams, it's an industrial standard to place them in the least conspicuous places, so back, foot soles, butt crack, and similar places. Jeph probably drew inspiration from Star Trek TNG or another show where androids had removable heads.

>>1064296

In addition to doing everything in one layer, Jeph makes up the dialog on the spot and enters it directly into the image editor, rather than pasting it from a word processor that spell checks.

Problem with that is you can see all those places in the picture, and no seam. Having to deglove the entire body to fix a broken toe would be in line with luxury items and their repair costs, think repairing anything on a BMW. But I'm unwilling to give Stabs enough credit to assume that's what it is. It's more likely he was drawing another one of his identically shaped characters, decided it should be the cop, and drew in the jew nose and neckline at the last minute.

So, this technician is helping a convict, which is basically unrepentantly guilty of grand theft and the attempted theft of dangerous military hardware, to get a new body, for free, which will likely be better than its own since it will have a nose, ears, and more realistic hair, all absolutely free, just because an ex-cop wants it to happen, and sees no problem with this at all?

And this is from the cop that quit because of the corruption and bad cops which we never actually see, which is currently leveraging this repair shop (the employees of which genuinely feel threatened) into doing what it wants.

Has anyone tried pointing out to Jeph that his story is basically a bunch of entitled assholes using their tremendous privilege to get what they want and fuck everyone else?

>No offense ma'am, but this thing's a wreck.

In what way?

Jeph's talking like this body of May's is some sort of travesty but it hasn't really impacted its life at all. It's arm fell off 862 fucking strips ago and got fixed almost immediately.

In that same strip where the arm fell off, it tripped and ripped its face on something sharp - damage which would have sent a human to hospital and scarred them for life but May gets a free face replacement.

It doesn't feel pain, it doesn't struggle to get out of bed in the morning, it doesn't have a problem maintaining its grip, it doesn't have difficulty feeding itself because its hands won't stop shaking, it doesn't feel the cold, it doesn't need medication, it doesn't feel exhaustion, it doesn't have trouble catching its breath after climbing up the stairs - all of May's physical ailments have been solved very quickly, for free, with no consequences - they are little more than minor inconveniences.

Why should I or anyone else care that this freeloading Twat-o-tron5000 doesn't have a top of the range, platinum-lined body?

But why? It's clearly a normal procedure or they'd be doing it in a clean room with a highly-trained engineer, not in a back room by the Apple store guy. May's not inconvenienced in the slightest. These units are clearly intended to disarticulate, hence the joints. This is the robot equivalent of taking off your shirt at the doctor's office. It would make sense if Roko was giving May some privacy, but what about this is making her queasy?

Jeph should make it so that the blue cunt actually raped children or something. Suddenly the story would be so much more symbolic. "She's just a poor felon who did her time :( when will people ever forgive her ?". No one ever would find this distasteful or stupid, at all, obviously :^j

Whoring it out to people who are too nervous to see genitals or any actual sexual acts, apparently.

Shit, even nipples drawn on with a sharpie are simply too much for Jeph's fans to see.

I do wonder how Jeph feels about sex - he has drawn tits before but when it comes to males he really shies away. Remember when he drew a hologram with a cock and balls? The detail was so scant it was like a toddler trying to write the letter U. But then, I have long suspected Jeph can't even get a hard-on 'cause he's afraid it may be sexist.

What is expected of "society" with regards to ex-cons? Freedom of association means freedom to not associate. Recidivism rate is something like two-thirds over a two or three year period, so it's a matter of self-preservation in many people's eyes. I think it's extremely weird to be pitched an ideology where serving time is essentially considered doing some sort of work and that something is owed upon release. That is the exact opposite of what has happened. Even expecting a blank slate is too much, but handouts? I think people could get behind redemption programs, which, let's face it, would also be exploitative, but not free stuff for convicts.

>>1064966

>I do wonder how Jeph feels about sex

It's funny: these people almost certainly consider themselves to be sex-positive feminists fighting to break down the patriarchal barriers of shame and guilt but they'll also complain about the male gaze and objectification. In reality they're probably more puritanical than actual puritans. At least they didn't have a problem with banging your wife. These people demand continual, verbal consent even with people who have been together for years.

And why is that? We have AI units occupying useless middle management positions all over, but this one is "just" an algorithm? Shouldn't even May's WalmartBot chassis have enough processing power to run an algorithm that sorts ex-con chassis distribution based on proximity and parole terms? Why isn't this algorithm tied to a robot?

The ex-criminal might hook up with the ex-cop? What a creative and unexpected twist. Nobody could have possibly seen the gerbil in Jeph's head cook that one up.

When you think about it, shouldn't the thing attempt to optimize the odds of acquiring upgrades?

I really hate sci-fi properties with more primitive technology than real life. For example, situations that would be resolved with any kind of modern communication like cellphones or email. Or assembly-line equipment that for some reason can't be repaired or replaced economically. Transportation issues that would be solved by a car, bus, or train. There's something to be said about dystopian scenarios, but I'm referring to "regular" sci-fi that is supposed to be like current society but 50+ years down the road. Even then, the dark sci-fi properties give the protogonists easy access to stuff like time travel or the mega plasma cannon but for some reason they can't morse code their allies.

With regards to technology in Jeph's stupid town, none of it makes any fucking sense:

AIs are individuals with rights, yet can be bought off the shelf as property.

No-one knows how they're made, yet they appear everywhere to the point they are a commodity, even as robot animals.

They're apparently entitled to functioning anthroforms with no maintenance required, yet can still be bought as household appliances with zero obligation to upgrade.

They are apparently, sometimes, a downtrodden underclass yey they can take the basic, low-paid jobs of humans or blunder down the sidewalks smashing the place up with absolutely no-one complaining, and rows of high street stores and repair shops specifically catering to their needs and cosmetics.

The town is allegedly post-singularity yet the AIs get depressed, can become addicts, get bored, feel sick, forget things get confused, and on average seem to have less skills overall than a high-school dropout.

What is the fucking point?!
