Pre-teens are almost as bad and signs of things to come, not looking forward to it.
Centcomm 1st May 2014, 4:09 AM edit delete reply

yep they will drive you nuts..
Antonious 1st May 2014, 3:28 PM edit delete reply

Too late for me. I teach crazy.
Sheela 1st May 2014, 6:16 PM edit delete reply

What, only teach ?
Antonious 2nd May 2014, 3:02 PM edit delete reply

Well Sheela, as I live crazy from the moment I wake to the moment I pass out (from tiredness or darts), I figured I should add teaching it as an added dimension to the insanity. Care to be a guest speaker?
Sheela 2nd May 2014, 4:02 PM edit delete reply

So you don't preach and practice crazy ?

... I'm strangely disappointed !
Antonious 4th May 2014, 9:17 PM edit delete reply

My every waking moment is a demonstration of life as a crazy. I do not need to preach it as my whirlwind sucks you right in. And practice crazy!? Hun, I AM crazy. I perfected it. I no longer need to practice.
Sheela 5th May 2014, 9:02 AM edit delete reply

Aw ... I'm afraid I have bad news for you.

You can both manage to type on a keyboard *and* speak in coherent sentences - You're not nearly as crazy as you think!
Miyto 8th May 2014, 8:16 AM edit delete reply
Actually it's the 'sane' ones whom couldn't type nor speak coherently.
The human OS uses emotions as the floating base for all of our decision-making processes, at least until enough rational logic gets added in (during runtime) to reach a solid base of logic.
What do you call logic reached via irrational thoughts?
I call it a product of an unsound mind, which happens to the definition of insanity.

The only 'sane' human's I can think of are vegetative, and without complex thought.

Dr. Cooper is awesome :D

She is totally awesome :D

oooh look - is that a demonic duck of some kind?
Stormwind13 1st May 2014, 9:14 PM edit delete reply

Is this the Demonic Duck you were searching for, Fairport? :-D
Fairportfan 1st May 2014, 5:05 AM edit delete reply

For a different take on being the adopted mother of a teen who's beginning to Really Notice Boys, i give you today's Wapsi Square...

Yes but remember that is a Siren who has just reached puberty, drives a bit stronger there.

I had forgotten that strip - its a good one :D
mjkj 1st May 2014, 5:49 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, she is fitting her role quite well. And Jet immediately falls into the responding behavior...

...and yeah, I was wondering the same: what is the difference between mom and mum?


*hugs Galina*
highlander55 1st May 2014, 8:34 AM edit delete reply

Mum is British term for Mom. Or an older respected woman.
mjkj 1st May 2014, 8:37 AM edit delete reply

Ah, ok, thank you.
velvetsanity 1st May 2014, 12:07 PM edit delete reply

So 'mum' is a blend of 'mom' and 'ma'am'. ^_^
Centcomm 1st May 2014, 12:11 PM edit delete reply

kinda? heres what wikipidea says.. :D Mum and mummy are used in the United Kingdom, Canada, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, India, Pakistan, Hong Kong and Ireland. Charles, Prince of Wales publicly addressed his mother Queen Elizabeth II as "Mummy" on the occasion of her Diamond Jubilee.
Centcomm 1st May 2014, 12:05 PM edit delete reply

Yep - remember Dr Cooper is British from London actually. However unlike "Hollywood brits " They actually do not use a lot of whats called "Cockney" So when written it really doesnt have a accent .. just some phrases will be diffrent. Go watch recent Dr Who episodes :D you get the whole gambit :D
velvetsanity 1st May 2014, 12:24 PM edit delete reply

I've seen *plenty* of the Doctor, especially recently :D
Centcomm 1st May 2014, 12:31 PM edit delete reply

I still think Tennet is my fav .. but Matt Smith is a a BIG number two.
highlander55 3rd May 2014, 2:40 PM edit delete reply

I have enjoyed Doctor Who since 1972. But the first time I heard 'Mum" was on TV watching The Quite Man. I think it was around 1965.
Centcomm 4th May 2014, 9:19 PM edit delete reply

wow .. your a long time Who fan AWESOME !
Quieteyes 1st May 2014, 8:15 AM edit delete reply
No doubt about it..."mum's" the word. :-)
Centcomm 1st May 2014, 12:01 PM edit delete reply

saw that Pun coming a MILE away .. :D LOL
Sheela 1st May 2014, 6:18 PM edit delete reply

So you kept mum about it, huh ?
Guest 1st May 2014, 9:00 AM edit delete reply
Having raised a teen daughter and son through this stage I can say without reservation, Boys are much worse than girls.
Dragonrider here.
Centcomm 1st May 2014, 12:02 PM edit delete reply

I bow to your superior knowledge oh Sir :D
But i have heard as much..
Sheela 1st May 2014, 6:19 PM edit delete reply

That's only because you only see half of what the Girls are up to.

Yeah, we old people know what the teenage daughter is up to when the door is closed and loud music is playing.

wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
Centcomm 1st May 2014, 6:25 PM edit delete reply

hehe you dont want to know do you :D
Stormwind13 1st May 2014, 9:19 PM edit delete reply

Different kinds of trouble, though boys can get into some real interesting things... I should know... But let us not talk about such things... I'm reasonably sure the statue of limitations has long run out, but why tempt fate. :-D

Having said that, I've got friends with ONLY girls. All 12 of their kids (5 families) are girls... and 9 of them are teenagers... :-p You do NOT want to hear all that troubles packs of girls can get up to. If you weren't grey before you WOULD be afterward. :-D
Antonious 2nd May 2014, 3:06 PM edit delete reply

Hey Storm, did any of the trouble include model rockets with gunpowder or magnesium shavings filled nosecones?
Sheela 2nd May 2014, 4:09 PM edit delete reply

Gunpowder and magnesium ?
Is that all your kids get up to ?

Meh ... imagine having to try explaining how a piece of a broken off banana is still inside your daughter to your OB-gyn, and you get a completely different kind of awkward.

And then he'd console you with "At least it wasn't glass", after which you wouldn't be able to sleep for days.
Stormwind13 2nd May 2014, 5:40 PM edit delete reply

I'm not sure she is GOING to, but one of them probably (given the materials) is smart enough to construct a nuclear device. :-p And she would probably LIKE it, provided she was out of the blast area. Scary how smart that girl is... and she is only 13. :-)

LOL Sheela. Um, yeah... That is a little awkward for sure. :-D
highlander55 2nd May 2014, 10:29 PM edit delete reply

well it helps that Galina cant bear children.. :P
Stormwind13 5th May 2014, 10:50 PM edit delete reply

Helps WHO, CentComm? :-D I mean, that would make the Mum even MORE suspicious. Teenagers that don't have to worry about the consequences of their actions are even SCARIER. :-D

This PS3 "demo" video I rediscovered on YouTube reminded me of Luna Star and Datachasers:

Kara : a PS3 new technology

To be fair, though, in Datachasers humans would not be at all surprised at an android that's self-aware and sapient. (Though, it did also remind me of MegaTokyo in that it has an android character that's a sapient PS3 "accessory" for dating sims.)
Centcomm 4th May 2014, 9:18 PM edit delete reply

Kara is a cool vid .. but more close to Luna Star or the years before it.. that kind of self awareness was a curiosity or considered dangerous..
Sheela 5th May 2014, 9:06 AM edit delete reply

Many feels in the Kara video though. :)
Caley Tibbittz Collopy 15th Jul 2014, 7:16 PM edit delete reply

This could have so easily been rehashed saccharine drivel, but your collective grip on tone and character is intimidatingly magnificent. Seriously, this is the kind of scene most writers suck at it, but the execution here is just perfect.
