Quantum Vibe / Re: Warming up to Lorelei
« Last post by Sean Roach on March 09, 2018, 01:47:53 pm »
1768 - "I must admit, I started warming to Lorelei at that point."

The moment where she is taking a sip of a potentially adulterated drink.  I imagine a mango-citrus punch, especially if the consumer is unfamiliar with the taste, could mask any number of chemical oddities.

Probably more importantly, right after she mentions reservations about Alyss Rhodes' behavior.
I don't like her. I don't like her. She agrees with me? I've always liked her.

Especially since Lorelei could have take a counter to the drug before hand.  ;)

Still, I'm more interested in Lorelei having a four-teen year old male servant (his age is mentioned in the text version).

The text mentions that he's looking at Diana but that could just be the natural reaction of a four-teen year old male.  ;)

. . . with today's comic we have someone who looks suspiciously like an older Dr. Diamondi . . .

Glad I wasn't the only one who noticed that . . .

She was killed off screen. The only way she would be back is if reports of her death were highly exaggerated...

Naw, Seamus was killed in that prison too technically. And now with today's comic we have someone who looks suspiciously like an older Dr. Diamondi. That said, I'm usually wrong about these things.

Antigone might have a backup and come back as an artifolk.  Maybe we'll discover that robot Antigone is not quite the old Antigone, just like robot Nicole is not quite the same Nicole.  Maybe that has something to do with Smith and Holder corruption.

Do you know how many corporations have had data breaches and decided to conceal, rather than publish, the fact? They depend on their reputation of solidity to keep and grow their customer base, and have hidden embarrassing things, not out of malice or changed ideals, but because they fear the information hitting them where it hurts: their pocketbooks. Ultimately, their ideals come second to their "responsibility" to their shareholders. For the same reason, "good" men, (and some "good" women) in some institutions which have recently been in the news, have kept silent about suspected criminal abuses and other unacceptable behavior because to speak up is to pay a cost they aren't prepared to pay.
Ask yourselves, when was the last time "Dixie Chicks" had a hit single? I think their last one was before they publicly disagreed with Bush Jr. during the height of his popularity. Now, he's since lost much of his luster with the general population, but have you heard a new song by them since? Going along to get along is so much easier. No one comes after the anonymous crowd who stood aside and let something happen.

An "Assurance company" concealing their failings to avoid embarrassment, and likely lost revenues, is just,.. normal.
Juan Gomez valuing his scruples above his job, and therefore breaking the rules to see a murderer caught, is an aberration, not the norm.

Remember. Easy isn't always right, right isn't always easy, and corporations are like sociopaths*; they choose what's best for them.

* The exception to this are corporations that are still effectively an extension of their founder or board, and whose founder or board consider the image of the corporation to be part of their own public image. Wal-Mart isn't the same since Sam Walton died. Chick-fil-a will probably lose direction should the Cathy family lose control.

If you're referring to the gay-marriage opposition activities of Chick-fil-a, they already changed direction on that. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chick-fil-A_same-sex_marriage_controversy
