The new donation desktop for May is up! I have some brand new Mecha Maid stickers as an incentive, these are shaped stickers, and have a 2D barcode with a URL at the bottom.
Also, Mr. Webby plushies are coming soon! Save your pennies and look for the Kickstarter.
…My money is on Brazil
Foreskins………..should i be worried?
oh wow this is odd being first…..xD slow night tonight?
Maus – German Brazilian… suddenly you’re a bit less hot to me…
Maus looks pretty disappointed right now that Greta wasn’t born in Germany.
On a side note: Possible first?
Moreover, Greta is from a VERY diverse country.
Harvesting foreskins. Lovely.
Also Greta being German Brazilian makes perfect sense.
Do you think the nazis will be okay with the circumcisions needed to get all these stem cells?
I mean it IS a pretty jewish act.
One, two, three, FORESKINS!
Heh heh heh.
It’s from a movie.
Uhho, harvesting foreskins… you know what that means right?
Dr. U’s gonna use Jewish Genes to make a Neo Hitler!
This is almost as calamitous as the Robo Pope!
It’s not done only by Jewish people anymore. Anyone who’s male and was born in the US in the last 40 years has at least a 50% chance that they got snipped when they were born.
It’d still be damned funny if the Illinois Nazis didn’t know that.
Not only the US. When I was born, circumcision of newborn boys was pretty much standard in New Zealand. I sometimes wonder what I might be missing — but, I guess I’ll never know.
Well, according to my cut friends, your missing infections if you don’t keep clean enough, pain if you one of the types who have tight skins with small openings, so keeping it clean is harder, since harder to get in there. So a nice little problematic circle there. And then there is the shmeg…. aka dick-cheese.
So yeah, far as I can tell from them, not much.
Sorry, typing to fast and didn’t realize I hadn’t hit a couple keys hard enough, I meant to say, “uncut” friends.
Actually, I know about smegma.
I didn’t have a lot cut off, so when I was little, what was left of my foreskin usually covered my glans. I liked to peel it back (phimosis not a possibility, of course) and scrape out the crud I found there. Gave me the same satisfaction as squeezing blackheads.
Thanks guys…. all this talk about dick crud was able to wipe out the image of Greta bouncing along in a sports bra playing soccer….. ugh.
Keheheh… My job is done…
Greta-chan bouncing around in a sports bra at the beach…..mmmmmmmm-mmmmmmmmmm….
How did my statement get so horribly derailed horribly!?!
trying to get back on topic, I would assume that Dr. U would rule out any removed due to infections, diseases, or the like due to potentially ruining the baby batter, so that leaves cosmetic and ritual removal.
I’m pretty sure that the ritual side holds a vast majority over the cosmetic side.
So, Greta is my countrywoman? Granted, I live in Minas Gerais, two states away, but it does work. Santa Catarina is, indeed, filled with German people.
It has somewhat fewer gravity manipulators, though.
Incidentally, given that Brazil is one of the most mixed countries in the world, Maus might not like it here, haha.
Not many Gravity Manipultors ? So you say weirdo, so you say.
Scott, gravity manipulators is more a Paraná thing…
Corrientes and Misiones is full of gravity manipulators
Guy the REAL question is,
is does Greta go FULL BRAZILIAN?
Well, that explains why Gretta’s bikini in that donation desktop has a Brazilian flag on it. I’m pretty sure I brought it up in a previous comment, but I never got around to checking if anyone responded to it.
Also, I love how Dr. U keeps subverting expectations of comic book science with real science. “He’ll be just a baby”, “…in a year or fifty”, etc.
And as a closing remark: Now we know why Gretta keeps slipping in and out of her accent.
Ah, sorry. “…in a year or so.” I mistook the ‘s’ for a ’5′. Stupid comic book typeface.
Rofl, Maus’ face in panel two cracks me up.
Brazil is pretty much the polar opposite of the Nazi version of an ideal country. Basically, the entire population has a mixed heritage and is descended from African slaves, the indigenous population, European immigrants (mostly from Portugal and Italy) and even some Asian people. It’s one of the most ethnically diverse places on Earth – hence their success in beauty contests.
No wonder the nazi guy doesn’t look happy.
I spent a few years working in a Kiwifruit orchard. As a local, I was very much in the minority. Most of the crews were made up of recent immigrants, mainly Samoans and Punjabis, or tourists on working holidays, primarily Czechs, Germans and Brazilians. For some reason we mostly got Czech couples, German girls and Brazilian boys.
One of those boys had ancestors from four continents. He was so good-looking that even staunchly straight guys commented (mostly in tones of envy.)
Then there was the German girl who acquired the nickname Linda Bum-bum…
Aaaaaand Greta with the shutdown! Maus looks truely underwhelmed. She’s such a darling.
Aww yeah! I desperately want a Mr. Webby! Especially if he’s all huggable and floppy like he is in the comic!
How they want to make Hitler from that?
Do all former Nazis have Hitler in their genes?
Or they plan to do that to all possible Hitler male descendants over the world who still are alive…
So a trip to South America to hunt?
Plus it’s kinda ironic for new Hitler to be born in Jewish way
I’m thinking Dr U just knows when someone doesn’t understand biology and he can screw with people and het money for it.
The reason he’s using foreskins is presumably because he plans upon using the fibroblasts, which multiply faster than most human cells and are easily transformed into stem cells. Stem cells, as we all know, are capable of becoming any type of cell in the body, so they’d be useful if you intend to make a human being.
I don’t pretend to be a biologist, but this seems to be a rather different method of cloning than the one that I’m more accustomed to, in which Dolly the sheep was cloned. In that process, an unfertilized oocyte has its genetic material removed and replaced with the DNA from a diploid cell, then is implanted into the womb of the appropriate species, where it develops and is eventually born, being genetically identical to the original, a bit like an identical twin who happened to be born later.
I assume that Dr. Universe intends to use a stem-cell culture so that he doesn’t have to find a woman willing to carry a Hitler clone for nine months. Something tells me that a year won’t be fast enough for Kugelblitz, though. He’s probably going to suggest that they get the stem cells from some other source, perhaps embryonic. One way or another, I’m guessing that Dr. Universe is going to somehow have to step up the collection rate, for some reason or another, which will undoubtedly get the heroes involved.
So, while I may have digressed a bit, the reason for harvesting foreskins has nothing to do with the donors being in any way related to Hitler. After all, in addition to the stem cells, he said earlier that he needed a genetic sample. Naturally, that sample would be from Hitler, so there’d be no reason to try to hunt down long lost descendants of Hitler, who never fathered any children, anyway, seeing as the Fuhrer’s original genome would already be at Dr. Universe’s disposal and he’d have no need to reconstruct it in such a futile manner.
Whahaha, Maus’ face is priceless.
And more important: Yay, Mr. is coming into reach *bouncing up and down in anticipation*
185 pound briefcase… 91 bars of gold at 2 pounds per bar, give or take… Maus it a sturdy fellow
That. Is a lovely avatar. : D
Related to Elvira? ; D
probably more like 200pounds, either way, Maus is a strong boy.
Cue Spinny breaking through window!!! MM blasting the roof off with missiles and Wild Tiger Breaking the walls down!!!! Hitler will NOT BE CLONED!!!
There’s a chance that Spinny will break through the window and into the room just in time to catch Dr U et. al in the act of harvesting them foreskins. I can just imagine the horror and comedy that would ensue.
Actually circumcision isn’t only a Jewish thing, it’s global. In fact, when European colonists arrived in the Americas they made note that *some* of the Native Americans were circumsized. Though it is commonly associated with religion, as a significant portion of circumsized males are either Jewish, Christian or Muslim.
Given that nurture, social demographics and life experiences probably contributed as much (if not significantly more so) to Adolf’s ideals than nature, in 25-30 years or so when Adolf Mk. II is old enough to start a political career, he almost certainly won’t meet their expectations…
…by which time Dr. U will be long gone (having ensured he’s no longer able to be contacted by the organisation who’d probably want to collect a refund plus interest)…
Well, the Nazis intend to raise Hitler Mk. II, so that takes care of nurture and life experiences. Furthermore, Kugelblitz said something earlier about a celestial alignment that would allow Hitler’s soul to return, provided that he has a suitable vessel. I’m certain that having the original Hitler’s reincarnated soul will likely fill in whatever is left over. It seems quite likely that his behavior and outlook on life would be EXACTLY what the Nazis are hoping for.
Quantum, true. However, unless they actually manage to find a ravaged and resentful Germany…
How much does 5 million in gold weigh? Seems heavy from the looks of it. This gives you an idea how strong Maus is.
Gold is currently trading at around $1600/oz. So $5,000,000 represents a little over 3,000 ounces of gold. Divide by 16, that’s around 200lb. Pretty heavy – I couldn’t carry it – but my great-grandad probably could, so it would be a pretty sad Übermensch who’d have problems with it.
At current exchange rate, that should weigh about 188.6lbs
That’s base on a Apr-02-12 opening rate of 1656.20/oz
5,000,000/1656.20 = 3018.959062915107 oz. / 16 = 188.6849414321942 lbs
For the math geeks
and for the guys that use Metric, that is how much weight?
And to think that he’s been lugging that case around using only one hand.
@Osaru Sensei: Using Woodchuck’s figures, it’s around 86kg.
188.6lbs = 85.73kg
Gold uses “Troy weight” rather than the “Avoirdupois weight” used on most things, so to convert ounces to pounds divide by 12 rather than 16. This makes the figure about 25% higher than what has been stated. Which, of course, is another good reason to adopt the metric system like the rest of the civilized world.
Gold also weighs about 12x as much as an equivalent volume of water, which means that brick Dr U is picking up should weigh at least 30 pounds, and Maus is showing about double what the amount they say they’re paying. Of course, gold in Spinnerverse may be trading at the “rational cost” of gold, rather than the jacked-up “fear cost” it is in the real world.
Yay for civilization! My country went metric when I was 10. Best decision ever.
Unlike some, I have no problems with Furukawa’s art style in general. It’s fussier than Gomez’s, which detracts a little from the fan service, but can be a positive trait in depicting grotesques like Kugelblitz.
However, he does this thing with teeth that is both sketchy and gruesome, sort of the opposite of chibi, see panel 1, and panel 2 on the previous page.
I dunno, is that unique to him, or some convention that I haven’t encountered so far? Whatever, I don’t think I like it. What do you think?
yeah, I find it distracting as well, but I’m sure I’ll adjust.
The teeth and the occasional chibi/partial chibi features reminds me of adventure time. I kind of like it personally
Yay, Mr. Webby! And who’s the new character in the donation desktop? Mrowr! Though my heart still belongs to Cat o’ Ninetails. <3
She looks like a Confederate States cavalrywoman… interesting.
Katt. And she’s MINE! ; D
Sry Croco, but thats not Katt on the Wallpaper
I’ll bet my boots that’s the mystery girl on the cover.
I know that’s not Katt in the donation desktop, but Chimera mentioned her.
Plus, y’know, a bit of random reminders of Katt being mine never hurt… me. ; D
