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.
Hehehehe, hahahahahaha, hohohoho, nyahnyahnyah! I can see this turning out hilariously, I think I’m gonna go destroy a landmark, make sure I’m still circumcised and then go sacrifice a skinling to my fur god! And then maybe a light pause and tea during contemplation after which….. Back to madness nyah! =^_^=
Seriously, you’re obviously a cat-person. When I was young we had a cat that would hurtle around the house, shredding furniture and any ankles that got in her way, then sit down and calmly wash her paws before streaking off for more mayhem. Don’t think she drank tea though…
Whatya gonna do,
Whatya gonna do
When they come for you?
I’m waiting for Dr. Universe to inform Greta that she and her generous birthing hips will be carrying the mini-fuhrer to term. No test tube babies for Nazis!
I see Universe is thrilled to NOT be getting Nazi Gold.
KUGELBLITZ???? Translates to “ball lightning” Interesting code name. That’s assuming that it is a codename…..hmmmmm. Boy, but he is a wreck though, ain’t he. How old???? Assuming that he was around 20 or so in1945, that wouldmake him about 95 at a minimum, may be older. I’n surprized he can moveunder his own power [cue off camera walker/wheelchair] Mr. nasty nazi for sure! THE COLONEL
Thanks, I was wondering what his name meant. My own minimal German conjured up images of shattered baked pasta…
The famous violin teacher Suzuki was interviewed on TV at around that age (95). The interviewer asked him if he intended to go on teaching until he died. He replied “No, I’ll give it another eleven years, then I’ll retire.”
And George Bernard Shaw famously died at the age of 96, after falling out of a tree he was pruning!
Brazil! How nice; they can dredge up the wreck of the Graf Spee, refurbish it, and the new Hitler clone can use it as his private yacht.
The Graf Spee was sinked in the Rio De La Plata….in front of Uruguay’s coast.
But there isn’t anything stopping them at this point from retrieving the remains of the Graf Spee…. although they may have some issues with leaks and a missing gun turret and so on…
That was a surprise although….. Brazilian German…. Maybe Greta has Nazi Ancestors…..
But this is looking to be one awesome story Krow
Actually most of the brazilian germans immigrants were PRE-unification of Germany, in some cases from almost a CENTURY before World War II.
And some of those, like my paternal grandfather, were among the brazilian troops that fought against nazis AND fascists in the italian front.
Now that i didn’t know….. WHY DOES THE SCHOOLS NOT TEACH US THIS!!?!?!?!
I suppose so in the current circumstances… but i’m thinking a few years back, god i feel old now
Yay for a Brazilian German who actually knows Brazil!
Also, Yay for Mr Webby. Do want a spider plushie.
I had a black spider plushie once, but my mom threw it out one day when I was not around to defend my territory.
Now I deploy turrets.
YES! WE’RE ALL DIFFERENT!
Wouldn’t that make us all equals?
Indeed, whenever we have accurate information about Brazil, it’s not only time to cheer, but to like our favourite webcomics even more!
But… you’re Argentinian yourself, arent’t you, Krow? Or am I mistaken? And, don’t worry, I don’t care about soccer, so, I have nothing against Argentina. I’m dying for visiting BA, actually, one of my best friends lives there.
Nope, I’m Canadian, but I’ve traveled to Brazil, I work with Brazil quite a bit.
Is it strange that the Nazi aren’t interested in football? I thought they had good sport teams in WW2.
Also they may support Argentina since Argentina was pro-German back then.
Argentina was PRO-EVERYBODY back then…we sold whatever to whoever if the price was right
Advantages of being neutrals…ask the swiss XD
Now if I understand my Cloning, it also won’t look like Hitler did, because appearance isn’t completely dependent on DNA alone; I think it develops in the womb.
Well they’re throwing in some mystic “we’re also summoning Hitler’s SOUL” stuff, so you can handwave a lot.
And what you’re thinking of is epigenetics. Someone’s genetic code does define a great deal about them, but events in their life, their parents’ lives, or (just to make researchers’ heads spin) even their grandparents’ lives can lead to chemicals either turning on or turning off genes. A big part of why twins can end up completely different. The pure genes are hugely important, but life experiences (like how your parents raise you) can result in different patterns of gene activation. A clone could theoretically end up looking very different over time.
well as i understand. it’s completly possible to remove the cells from the curigate mothers eggs that change the DNA of the child, the child is not affected by the mother if the mothers cells are not within the egg. well.. that’s just as far as i understand, it’s the reason why it’s possible to have another woman bear your child, by fertilicing your own egg and then having it clinicly put into another woman, that makes the child have only your genes but won’t stress your body, also good for homosexuals and stuf.
It would be funny if the Hitler clone turned out to be a girl.
By definition, cloning would produce someone of the same gender. Now, if Dr. U dumped a relatively large amount of estrogen into the cloning tank, the results would probably display female, but who knows what would happen after the kid was decanted…
What does he mean… “harvesting foreskins”?
I think it’s a crack at the “Hitler’s grandfather was a Jew” conspiracy theory that has been going around since WWII. The harvesting foreskins itself comes from a scene in the Old Testament where David instructs his soldiers to harvest the foreskins of every Philistine they kill to accurately tally the number of slain, and because the cells in the foreskin are easier to revert to stem cells than other types of cell.
I am expecting a joke about the obvious place to get foreskins being a mohel to surface in the next page… and I also note that Greta Gravity needs to learn some history, as she does not seem to realize that Nazis represent the very opposite of political correctness.
It’s some muddled SCIENCE I believe. Umbilical cords can be used for true stem cells, whereas foreskins are used to generate skin for skin grafts. But Dr. U isn’t bound by our rules of science.
The joke here is that it basically means that cloneHitler would be created by circumcising someone, and obviously the Nazis are going to go all “ZAT IS UNACCEPTABLE, HERR DOKTOR!”
How appropriate that a Hitler clone would be made from a bunch of dicks…
harvesting foreskin equals foreskin farm?
Al, to be sure, a shorthand pronounciation of “the” for Brazilians that aren’t ALL that fluent is closer to “ze”. Plus German may well be a native tongue for her; Santa Catarina has some small cities in which people speak mostly German or Italian or what have you.
… *American* Gold? What?
I was confused by that as well. Gold is gold, it’s on the periodic table. Whether you mined it from the US or not should be irrelevant to its quality since it’s an element and all that. It’s either pure gold or it isn’t.
*shrug* I dunno.
Gold Bullion is often stamped. What he means is the gold has markings saying the bricks are from an American source. Easier to liquidate then gold stamped with a Swastika, yes?
Of course you will spark the interest of the US Treasury department if you try to liquidate gold in any large amount, until recently I would have said real estate would be your best bet. I have no experience with gold, I am merely speaking from common sense. Fun fact though, the price of a good firearm is tied to the price of one troy ounce of gold.
yes it would be quite interesting to see someone sell a gold bar with a swatstika stamped on it
I think it may have something to do with nazis stealing all that “jewish gold” durring wwII… and the good doc doesn’t want that on his hands, for what ever reason. Thats just my thought though.
Then there is the 10% admixture of lead, if you believe the James Bond novel Octopussy…
A short word about the foreskin-thing. Usually the natural foreskin rolls back easily and exposes everything necessary to be cleaned. It is actually more difficult to clean the circumcised penis. The reason is simple if you understand what happens to the glans after the procedure. The natural penis has it’s own disinfectant and method of protection. The circumcised penis is damaged, requiring special attention to the fact that the glans membrane is now filled with microscopic fissures. These fissures are caused by scarification (keloid scarring) and keratinization of the membrane. They harbour bacteria … which is why uncircumcised men are less prone to STDs. This is progressive and cumulative damage.
BTW. Many men over 50 lose almost all sensation in the glans.
To the cloning process … Dr. U just needs a DNA sample of Hitler for analyzing the code. Using one of his fantastic machines he then programmes the multipotent stem cells with this code – mission accomplished.
Anti-circumcision propaganda? Really?
Dunno about STDs in general, but surveys have shown that in Africa, areas where circumcision is common have much reduced incidences of HIV.
Correct, Chaise. There are definitely areas where it can have substantial health benefits.
Of course, circumcision also results in a loss of sensitivity in the glans, meaning that greater force/friction is needed for climax to be reached. Anyone that claims to know what that really means for long-term relationships is full of crap, because nobody’s ever performed a long-term large-scale study. Could have a negligible effect, could be beneficial, could be detrimental, we just don’t know.
My point is that there’s strong data to say it’s a good idea, especially in some areas, but it’s a bad idea to state “circumcision is bad” (or good) as an absolute, since there’s so many variables we haven’t even studied.
Plus, there are medical reasons for circumcision. Phimosis anyone? Circumcision is still a valid surgical method to deal with a phimosis under the right medical parameters.
As for cleaning… really? It’s hard to clean? I’ve never experienced any issues with cleaning it, really. I had a phimosis as kid and it didn’t go away as in most cases. So I ended up under the knife. As for the loss of sensitive in the glans, I can’t compare it, for obvious reasons, but I can say it’s not really an issue. All working as planned.
You know, now that I learned Greta is Brazilian, I’m actually rooting more for her escape to have involved as much pain to her captors as possible (on issue 6 it was shown that her arrest was done without any consideration whatsoever to basic rights, and even without any good reason).
Since it was the Us State Department that arrested her, what your “rooting for her escape to have being painful for her captors” have to do with her Brazilian nationality?
Did you always have a Brazilian somewhere.
Does she drink caipirinha?
She’s my countrywoman now.
So this one’s going to be a balls-to-the-wall clone. Fun. Will make a good evil-villan entrance though.:
Made from the pain of 10 million circumsized Jews!
Strong enough to lift 20 goldbars with one finger!
I think brazil could well be the most diverse country in the world, but i’m not entirely sure. And yea plenty of people from german descent/germans live there, sometimes in almost colonial(as in only germans) villages. being pale could be because she moved to wherever the comic takes place and it isnt that sunny there, besides even in brazil you wont get tanned sitting inside.
finally, I bet she can get an awesome tan without alot of effort. i should really work on reaching that level *pale sadface*
It is in fact very common to have people from the Brazilian states of Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina who learned first how to speak in German and that only learned Portuguese at school. They also tend to keep their traditions and many are “pure blood” germans, though that is not always the case nor does it imply any form of racism on their part. In case it matters, I’m Brazilian and live at the state of Rio Grande do Sul and know quite a few people who would in a way or another fit with the Greta Gravity character (minus the superpowers and superboobies – .
Wolfen has queried if Dr. U’s hands are prosthetic – I’ve been wondering about his eyes. His eye-protectors (?) look to have come from the same catalogue.
They aren’t. He wears cybernetic gauntlets. His hands are shown to be flesh-and-blood when he and Greta were first introduced.
Yeah, but that was before their escape from government custody.
No,no…he’s talking about the very 1st time they showed up,in that park interview.Dr U was using some regular gauntlets,showing that their hands were full fleshy ones.
Don’t see why. There could be anything under those gloves. The thing is, we’ve never seen Dr. U. with “full fleshy” hands. I find this suspicious, at least.
*ahem* i mean FOR SCIENCE!!
Girl Genius reference noted.
You sure it’s not an XKCD?
Do the 2 have to be mutually exclusive?
not at all…
IT’S A GOOD DAY FOR SCIENCE!
It always is.
