You know, the last time she was hit with that ray, Spinnerette mutated pretty quickly. This time she or the others don’t seem to be? Is this going to be a slow change or no change at all? Maybe Spinnerette is immune to it now?
how do we even know that that was a direct hit it could have just missed her and the shock wave nocked her back, more goat tacos anyone?
1. She could be spider DNA again which ends up having no effect on her.
2. The C.K. Reactor may have been ripped out before it fired making it just a fancy ray of light with just enough force to knock her back.
3. It could have missed her.
4. It could have been a mutation that we can’t see, hence hasn’t been noticed yet. There was no mention of the last reactor even having a C.K. Reactor, Spinnerette could very well now have the C.K. reaction herself!
Mine were jsut the reasons why it might not have worked.
5. Dr. L was working on a Infusion CHAMBER. of which the ray is only one part, though mayby the most important one. But without a clear instruction what to fuse the target’s genome with, it will fuse human DNA with itself. The result would be, well, no change at all.
It didn’t look like it hit her – it looks like it just got her to jump off the podium.
I think Wolfspider got it right… I think she yanked the critical part out so that it made the machine useless or else the beam missed.
As far as what was inside it, I would think since it was a new machine, there may not have been anything in it…
What exactly is Buzz doing with Sahira in Panel #3?
HEY BUZZ! Hands at 10 and 2 mister! Hands off the merchandise!
He appears to be wrapping his arms around her. I don’t see any touching of particular ‘merchandise’ …
yeah bucc-i i don’t see any merchendise touching either
And to be frank. I don’t know what point Sahira and Buzz might be in a relationship so…
Sahira isn’t merchandise!
…. she’s a FRANCHISE! =D
I don’t think Baka would agree with you Derrath
I’ve Got a feeling there is gonna be a big boom and a splat…..
*Spinny turns corner* Mecha maid ! i’m glad to see you!
MM: get be hind me spinny!
*Greta turns corner and see’s MM with lots of shiny rockets pointing at her* Oh schnitzels…
nein its “Oh Schnitzel.” Germans capitalize all nouns and Schnitzel is both singular and plural
Seeing as she’s actually German-Brazilian, it would be: “Ih, merda…”
I was going to say SchitBe but i thought this is to Highbrow for such slander…
Quickly, make a web to catch her! =D
… I know, she doesn’t have the time for it… =P But still, wrong.wolf wouldn’t mind seeing Greta all tied up while in the position she is flying in now XD
but letting her get spidersilk in her face works too XD
What must be nice about Greta’s power is that even if she have Titzillas, they will neer fall down!
But if she runs out of strength then she falls tit first.
seeing greta get bewb smacked doesn’t sound to bad to me
Wrong: AHH! Greta-Chan! Tell me where it hurts and I’ll kiss it all better!
*Greta Smacks him into the Exosphere*
*brings out giant universal remote & presses restart*
AHH! Greta-Chan! Tell me where it hurts—
as I sit back with popcorn and root-beer watching wrong wolf getting smacked into the Exosphere in an endless loop
*sits besides Mongoose to enjoy the popcorn as much as the show* Hey, did I miss anything?
no just your original self being punched into the Exosphere in and endless loop
Hee-hee! Look at that idiot fly!
You guys are HILARIOUS!!! [GIGGLE] (^_^)
Ever get whacked in the face from a tree branch? Looks like Greta is about to find out what it feels like. That web-line Spins left behind looks very thick at the base. Could have a lot of tension built into it.
Actually, I think Spins is doing a 1960s Bat-mobile emergency turn maneuver. She anchors the web rope to a corner, uses the rope’s tension to counter centrifugal force, and then lets go once the turn is complete.
Note: Mythbusters actually tested this, and it’s completely busted. Ropes strong enough to withstand the maneuver (with a car) while light enough to be launched as shown don’t exist. Actually attempting this will result in the rope’s breakage and the driver losing control of the vehicle.
To be fair, a car is a lot heavier than a person…Still probably wouldn’t work but she isn’t a car.
It wouldn’t wark, at the first place, because the “rope” is longer then entrance into corridor here, so If Spinny tried it she would face the wall on the right, not drift into the passage.
The physics of the maneuver is sound but as mentioned, current materials available had proven to be too weak for the maneuver. There’s a good chance that it would work with something lighter like a person, assuming the person’s body can withstand the maneuver without something breaking or being pulled out its socket.
As for the bat-mobile, Mythbusters forgot that we are talking about Batman here. Who knows what material he used for the cable.
it’s rain goats! hallelujah! its raining goats! Amen!
Not to mention spider silk is very strong. combined with Heather’s lighter weight, it could hold.
*Butchers a trio of goats* Certain forms of Spider silk is stronger then steel of the same diameter, combined with her lighter mass, reflexes and (Possible) strength, she might be able to pull off a Bat-turn
Not to mention she’s probably not going nearly as fast as the car meaning she does not have as much momentum to counteract. I dont believe the comic has stated any kind of speed boost she’s gotten from the change. keep the goats coming
no guy it sariously raing goat my second greatest lifes work worked
Man in office: *looks out the window* Great! Now I can finally try out that anti-goat umbrella I bought online.
we’re butchering goats because we’re talking of physics, right? ((i actually don’t remember why we kill them))
FOR SCIENCE! DELICIOUS DELICIOUS SCIENCE!
Deo, we sacrifice goats when we attempt to apply real-world science-y stuff to the comic to save the Catgirls. (Katt-o-Nine Tails especially *Drools)
xPersonally I don’t care about the catgirls one way or the other but those goats..so delicious.
To the Backyard Grill!
And I’ve been profiting of of the sacrifices
but how did she get it ‘ahead’ of herself…. but then again she probably has been practicing ‘bat turns’
And I’ve been skimming off some of the profits and betting it all on a horse named Frieda. Sshhhhh! Don’t tell Mongoose, you guys.
But its SPIDER SILK guys, its SUPER STRONG!!!
Ok, enough with the “Delicious Science” lesson for today, be sure and read pages 433 through 467 for tomorrows exam.
That’s all for today class, and please clean up that barbecue sauce on the floor before somebody slips and falls in it.
its ok because I’m prifiting from your bets
No, I think the web trail is just so Spinny could take the corner at high speed. If anything, GG’s gonna go headlong into a wall. *Ker-SPLAT*
But what about the fact that gretta’s power is to alter gravitational forces? She could possibly be able to pull of the turn without the tow line Spinny used.
Gretta already said she’s running low on spare gravitons, I wonder how well she can manage the additional strain of inertial mass…
*puts on cheerleader outfit and waves pompoms* Greta! Greta! G! R! E! T! A! Greta!!!
OH MY GOD wrong wolf put that away man I wish I could unseen that
*makes Vogue-style pose*
Yes, your a$$ does look big in that
that wasn’t what I was talking about
For Brigid’s sake! THAT’S NOT A KILT!!!
Ok for now on I’m wereing heavy duty sunglass when your around wrongwolf
wrong wolf, you’ve distracted Greta and allowed Spinny to escape — you’re a double agent!
Don’t hate me cuz I’m beautiful.
That is the hairiest arse I’ve ever seen on a human male. x_X
What has been Seen Cannot be unseen… And for that, You can say goodbye to Greta… She will never love you now XD
My love is big enough for the two of us. It will conquer all. Greta-chaaannn!!!
OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WRONG WOLF HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO SAY TO PUT THAT THING AWAY
YEAH! she’s not interested in rings! She stays Single!
especial not rings there
Hey, what the–? I don’t remember getting those rings.
okay that’s enough caffeine and alcohol for you *knocks wrong wolf out* Hey who her is going to help me get the lug back home
As much as I hate it I think it’s my turn…aww who am I kidding I love launching things out of a catapult.
*points weakly with a finger* My…house…that way…wolf…spider…
Re-aims cannon and fires*
Gretaaaaaa-chaaaaaaaaannnnnnn! *flying through the air, waves pompoms one last time before disappearing in a flash of light just about the horizon*
Love this comic keep it up
Yes!!! Keep it up! *still wearing cheerleader outfit, jumps high in air to do a split while waving pompoms* Keep it up!
readys spikes on the landing spot
@ Wrong Wolf
Please. The consultant’s have told you, your insurance carrier’s have told you (in triplicate), your nearest and dearest have told you, this passion will kill you. Does Greta know you are killing yourself for her ?
Tell me, tell us, would you prefer to live to be 100, or would you prefer your last memory be of snuggling your face between Greta’s ..um.. y’know… and breathing in the scent of her?
and I am DEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTH POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I meant, um, I’m not smiling at your a$$, er, I smile at the strangest things
I’ve never heard of @$$ making people smile before
You should get out more
I think you’ve been staring at the wrong asses Mongoose.
It all depends on the a$$ in question. I’ve seen a$$es that made me smile and a$$es that made me laugh. I’ve seen a$$es that made me googly-eyed and a$$es that made me frown. I’ve also seen a$$es that simply made me cringe with sheer horror and disgust.
no I just not much of an @$$ guy
Dr Universe says its useless, i’m hoping Spinny’s not gonna become the Man-Spider or anything
I still trying to figger out what ‘state of the art’ security measures the Doc had installed. I sure hope that they weren’t just the three stougies there with their pistols! If that’s the case Doctor U should maybe reconsider stealing the ray, It may not work as advertised or be have a hamster wheel in the CK reactor.
That’s a valid point there Duckie…
Hmmm, Since Spinny made the turn assisted (yeah, I think spider silk, at that uprated size, would be a lot stronger than any known rope) I wonder if Greta is going to a) swing too wide and hit the wall on the far side of the hallway entrance, or b) hit the sidewall of the hallway and bounce down teh hall like a superbounce ball? Just wonderin’
Well she can control gravity which could neutralize at least a bit of the centrifugal force so not sure. it would still be an awfully sharp turn for her body to handle. Spins can handle it due to how her spider abilities upgraded her body but not sure how Greta’s body would hold up. either way she may need to worry more about Spins web. hitting her on the snap back.
why dose everyone thin that the web will spap back this is silk were talking about here, strong but not elastic more like if the one end isn’t already stuck then the wall the web will just flutter
Actually mongoose, Spider silk is fairly elastic, walk into a web and you’ll feel it stretch before it tears. *Kills another goat for Katt’s safety*
elasticity is the ability for a substance to retain its original form, shape and orientation after it has be bent or stretched. Now spider silk will stretch and bend, but a strand of spider silk with on loos end will not spring back when bent. Haven’t you ever seen a broken spider web flutter in the wind
Well the web would have to have some elasticity just to rocket her around the corner. second I’m not as worried about turning her as how it could get her tangled up.
Also a web has to be able to take relatively sizable stresses as a spider’s prey attempts to escape before it get’s cocooned.
Hurting her* how did my spell check get turning?
yet that still doesn’t change the fact that a loss spider thread dose not inherently snap back like a bent tree branch.
p.s. You know the only reason why I am continuing this argument is to promote mor goat sacrifices
*Presses a button and a bucket of goat sausage falls on Mongoose*
I had this made for just such an occasion.
Loss of elasticity or not, if it’s sticky at all gretta will become the other anchor… which will mean that gretta will give the free floating strand what it needs to throw her back against the wall.
Actually all you know-it-alls and wanna-be-experts, HERE is the DEFINITIVE AUTHORITY on spider silk…[all information cited from documented facts]…
And to address the specific question of elasticity to make it easier for the LAZY and impatient:
“It is difficult to underestimate the breadth of new applications that would be enabled if humans were to be able to produce a material with properties approaching those of spider silk. In addition to being strong spider silk is also highly elastic, a combination that is rare in one material (Benyus, 2001). Silk can actually stretch 40 percent beyond its original form and bounce back. That is 30 percent further than our stretchiest nylons (Benyus, 2002, p.132; 2001). Dupont researchers say that compared to current steel cables currently in use, dragline spider silk one fourth as thick could stop a jet in flight on an aircraft carrier (Valigra, 1999). As Richard Lipkin reports (1995) “spider silk is so strong and resilient that on the human scale, a web resembling a fishing net could catch a passenger plane in flight. If you test our strongest steel wire against comparable diameter silk they would have a similar breaking point. But if confronted with multiple pressures, such as gale-force winds, the silk can stretch as well; something steel cannot do (Benyus, 2001, 2002). For the spider this is necessary in order to catch its prey which may hurtle themselves unwittingly into the web at top speeds, and then fight for its life to get free. This trampoline effect effectively captures prey while keeping the integrity of the web intact. Therefore it is easy to imagine if that produced at the correct thicknesses spider silk would make a superior material to use on suspension bridges as well as reflecting bullets off vests.”
So after you read up on what miraculous powers mere spider silk has, STAND IN RENEWED AWE of Spinny!!! <3<3<3<3 *\(^_^)/*
she has not mutated any more because she pulled the important part out before it fired
its pretty obvious thats what happened
lots a people ahve theorys and that is probably the most unlikely, but we won’t know until Krow choose to reveale the out come
Silently and humbly waiting on the secret mysteries hidden deep within the mental vault of our esteemed Krow…
Since we’ve seen a teaser pic of Sahira with six arms, isn’t it likely she’s going to become Spinny II? (Temporarily, no doubt, there can be only one Spinny.)
And spiders can spin different grades of silk, elastic, non-, and some with a built in coil so it stretches easily for a bit and then holds. Remains to be seen if Spinny has mastered that trick yet.
In a previous chapter she was working on creating different kinds of silk.
She was also practicing her “aim” in a previous chapter. I miss those times. Fun times. Fun times…
she uses her webs like a lasso and as for the elastic thread they still need to be attached on both end like the string of a sling shot because they can retain the original length if stretched but as I’ve mention before if one end is loose then the loose that ability. just like in a sling shot if on end of the string gets loose the sling losses its elasticity. In other word with out some sort of anchor holding the thread down there is now way for and spring force to build up in the thread,
GIR: Doom-de-doom-doom-doom. Man, I’m bored. View’s nice though.
GOAT TACOS FOR EVERYONE
On platter with lots of spicy ensalada please.
Someone running away with a cube while chased by someone with high destructive potential? It’s the ending of the first Bayformers film!
Pork and beans with rice! *sounds of robot transforming*
Greta’s velocity + well-placed web strand = Wile E. Coyote moment.
[GIGGLE!] What a thought!
Run, Spinny! Run like the fate of the world depends on it!
I dont think the world is in danger… In my opinion, as evil as Dr. D is, hes all about where it counts… THE SCIENCE! Hell, one day he’ll pull a Cave Johnson and make combustible lemons
IT’S A Trap!
A Titanic Boobie Trap!
Also, i would love for greta to just be floored boobs first LOL
she would be like a beached whale with huge floatation devices x’D
wrong wolf: *sniffles* Greta-chan… (off key) ♪ Every night in my dreams, I see you, I feeeeeel you… ♫
