1 There's Naive and Then There's Bloody Stupid on Thu Sep 06, 2012 8:47 am


I really think that Pip is beginning to stray dangerously into the Godfather's "people asking to be killed" territory. I mean, yeah, she's pretty and he wouldn't normally stand a chance but her behaviour is practically a walking, talking cliché of betrayal. How long will it take before the penny drops?

If ever? Laughing

By the way, that knock-out drug, does it have any occular effects on birds? It might explain his improved sight if he is being dosed heavily with a eye drug with secondary sedative properties.

Is it bad that in his shoes I'd still obey her merest whim as if it were a command from on high?

I still maintain she fucked him once to get him on her side and then just knocks him out with pills to make him think he's doing a good job.

This is actually quite dark for Sequential Art.

Slave trading, mental rewiring to cause phobias to make the victims more controllable, mass slaughter, genocide by death ray (narrowly averted), cattle mutilation, warfare with the deaths of unnumbered sentients...

And giving an undeserving dweeb the best week of his life is dark?

Priorities man, priorities. Razz

Not really. Date raping some guy to manipulate him to conduct a little benefits cheating is way darker by comparison.

Hrm. Panel three, flouncing out... Am I imagining things or could the apple-butt-bunny in the recent doodles blortch on DA have been a prototype for this pose?

Another interactive strip I see, because I had to look up what Rohypnol was. Here is some interesting data from Wikipedia:

Wikipedia wrote:The use of flunitrazepam in combination with alcohol synergizes the adverse effects, and can lead to toxicity and death.

She gave this to him with WINE.

Wikipedia wrote:Flunitrazepam is known to induce anterograde amnesia in sufficient doses; individuals are unable to remember certain events that they experienced while under the influence of the drug. This effect is particularly dangerous when flunitrazepam is used to aid in the commission of sexual assault; victims may be unable to clearly recall the assault, the assailant, or the events surrounding the assault.

Now this is ironic, considering she's using it to get out of sex with him.

Wikipedia wrote:Flunitrazepam impairs cognitive functions. This may appear as lack of concentration, confusion and anterograde amnesia. It can be described as a hangover-like effect, with impairment of mental arithmetic abilities.

Other adverse effects include:

Slurred speech
Gastrointestinal disturbances, lasting 12 or more hours/Vomiting
Respiratory depression in higher doses

Allow me to say it again: What a massive thundercunt.

Wikipedia wrote:In the United Kingdom, the drug is available only by private prescription. Though Rohypnol was discontinued in 1986, Flunitrazepam use is still present in modern culture; among other uses, it is used in some hospitals to sedate patients undergoing colonoscopy.

So how the hell is she getting this stuff then?

Yes.

Also, where did the funny go? Why 6 out of 7 last strips(789, 790, 792, 793 , 794, 795) have no jokes in them? Is JJ depressed or something? Why the arc that started so awesome devolved into this?

It's a stock "joke" drug reserved for controversial gags. Could be named anything but will be culturally referred to as "Rohypnol"

Well, so much for the "Simply can't hold his liquor theory" *shrugs*

Slave trading: I believe that Pip didn't really think that through & would probabily never try it again, seeing as how he obviously cares for Scarlet now ("They hurt Scarlet. They. Must. PAY").

Cattle mutilation: A common "Alien visitor" joke. Besides, unless there was something that indicated the cows were still alive when their lips were taken, it's no darker than fryng up a steak.

Everything else is standard for a action-adventure storyline & shouldn't be nitpicked

EXCEPT...

Mental rewiring: Loving the Quad as much as I do, this has always pissed me off. How much has those 3 missed out on because some douchebag scientists didn't see them as people Mad

And when you think about it, it's closer to the literal definition of "rape" than anything that's happened in this arc.

Well, somebody scoot over and give me a seat on the "Hilary is a vile bitch" Bandwagon.
-Edit-

I had a rant, and then I remembered that it's just a comic. Still, after some thought I realized that Pip is not likely to press charges or do anything that would lead to possible public humiliation. If we are going to see any justice, and that's a big if, I have to wonder how very terrible it may be. If Kat extracts revenge I'd expect a straight out fight. If it's Pip, I expect something dastardly that leaves Hilary holding the bag. And if it's Scarlet and/or the Squirl Girls...we don't know how they would react to one of their friends being hurt...that may be the most terrifying thing of all.

I believe that Inevitable Nemesis will soon be nigh. The Silver Ring believes the odds favour the most the concept of roofies ending up in the bunny's beverage, possibly as a result of the old switch game. Thus allowing the bunny to wake up in a situation that will sear her soul. Or what there is of it.

View user profile
You're right. Having her wake up in the middle of some very public place without a stitch of clothing, no ID, and miles from her apartment sounds satisfactory.
Now just where would be best?

Oh, JJ, way to take my theory of Pip not holding his liquor and flat out disprove it.

That said, what happens if she gets the glasses of drink mixed up? And all of a sudden it's her lying unconscious when the doorbell rings?

View user profile
notice she did not drink last time. I think she spiked the whole bottle so that it was a bit more diluted so as not to kill.

OK, so Hillary is slipping Pip roofers. The Date Rape drug, or in this case, the no-sex drug. Pip's adventure reminds me of the tale of the scorpion and the crocodile... although my favorite ending to that story is "Because it's Africa," the more commonly-heard one is, "You knew what I was before you let me climb upon your back." Pip's going to be pretty shaken when he comes to his senses, but he should, in retrospect, have no illusions about what Hillary is. The leopard can't change his spots.
