    Default Questionable Content 4: Attack of the 60-Inch AnthroPC

    A continuation of the threads for Questionable Content, a M-F "slice of life" comic in which life is defined by coffee, robots, Butts Disease, and spontaneous metal interludes.

    You have been warned.

    Meh. I'm generally confused about the fixation on behinds in general. I mean... we all know what comes out of there, right?

    As odd as this sounds, my fixation on the female behind is on a purely mechanical level. Like, the hip sway does this thing where the left cheek goes clockwise and the right goes counterclockwise.

    I can understand if there was a good deal of discussion going on and there was concern for passing the fiffy page limit, but as it is we basically start new threads after just 49 pages now instead of 50.
    Sorta depends on our whim and caprice, really, since the new thread generally gets created between the top 4 posts of the 50th page or the top 4 posts of the 51st page.

    Not aimed at you in particular, it's just a general trend I've noticed. (plus, with you I'm 90% sure you were just trying to get back on track ).
    Confusion, I think, is mostly because most men don't really have noteworthy tail plumage. They're kind of flat and nonexistent for most from what I've been able to gather. Or they're sculpted muscle and if they've managed to sculpt their gluteals to that extent, the rest of their body is quite likely to be drawing far more attention, because, well, pecs and biceps and male gaze of threat categorization. I think.

    Also, because women's butts have something to do with fertility instincts and being judged to be a good child-bearer with less of the inherent deception of the reason why human women have breasts and chimps and such do not, but there's not really anything of that sort for why a man's would be worth noticing for mate selection or arousal.

    As for non-gluteals... I got nothing.

    Just like I'm not really sure what to make of this strip. Then again, shorts never really made sense to me for outdoors wear except in dry climates where one is going to be out in the sun and dust as opposed to going through vegetation at all, ever.

    This is because (no secret here) guys are generally focused on physical attractiveness, whereas girls generally focus on mental attributes (emotions, intelligence, tact) and a higher percentage of the populace is straight than homosexual. So females get sexualized while guys get emotionalized.

    The problem is that neither gender likes being treated solely as meat and character development is done through actions, thoughts and emotions, so the females in stories get the shorter end of the stick.

    That's my theory, anyway, and TBF, psychology doesn't have to make sense (someone in ancient greece discovered that things that go up and to the right are more aesthetically pleasing to humans than down and to the left... apparently)
    To whom it may concern:

    Due to a massive pile-up of schoolwork I should've had done a month ago, I will be taking a temporary leave of absence from the boards. I'll occasionally check in (on roleplays in particular) but for the next two to three weeks I'm not going to be posting as much as usual. I apologize if this holds anyone up in anything, and hope to return soon.

    Look, women, on the whole, fall into one of two categories... butt likers and hand likers. Sometimes arm likers.

    Yes, yes, we generally choose a bloke for his non-physical assets, but it doesn't mean we don't check out the physical ones.

    For myself, I am a hand and arm chick, but most women I know check out behinds.

    I don't think I've ever fallen for someone based on how they look. Otherwise my crushes on Alan Rickman, George Hearn when he's dressed as Sweeney Todd (but not Johnny Depp in the same story), and Havelock Vetinari would be TOTALLY nonsensical.

    Well, everyone knows that the female form is a thing of beauty. Ain't too many male nudes in the art world aside from Michelangelo's David.

    I don't get what the whole thing is about, since Marten's shorts hardly show off any more than his pants do. There isn't even any thigh exposure.

    Can someone remind me of the arc where we started caring about Padma in the slightest way? Because if Marten isn't wondering where this is leading then I'm sure not either.

    A recent poll showed that, when cheated on, a woman will ask about the emotional part 62% of the time and the physical 38%. Males ask about the physical 54% and the emotional 46%.

    I realize it's not always the case, dog. Hence 'generally'.

    Well, its generally a biological thing, isn't it? Men only need physically viable mates for children, while women are saddled with providing for themselves and the children without a means to gather resources, and so need a socially viable mate.

    But to post on subject: Does anyone find Faye's warm behavior in the last panel a bit off? I'm hoping it will be revealed as some form of cynical ploy.

    ...Unless it's revealed to be a cynical ploy of some sort I'm probably just going to file it under the heading of "Non-canon one-off because Jeph wanted some lulz that day."

    Personally i find the most appealing feature on a person to be their back when they're walking faster than me.

    Because it means they're walking away.

    Jokes aside, I have this thing for blood-red/brick-red hair... the kind of redhead that is RED. not orange. RED. Orange reminds me of one my friend's mother...

    Yeah Padma is strange to me too. I like the background. Looks like one of those jigsaw puzzles where every... single... piece looks the same. Working around the sides is the only way!!

    Gah! Too much background... Also, what I like is how Momo is not even spraying her skin. Looks like its just going on the shorts.

    And I hope those aren't Hannelore's.

    Where do you live? I can't wear long pants if the weather's any hotter than 20 degrees C (70 degrees F), and if I'm doing any sort of physical activity that goes much lower.

    Momo's skin is apparently made out of something so flesh-like that people can be standing right in front of her and not know that she's a robot, so it's not simply plastic in the sense that we think about it. I suppose it wouldn't be too much of an exaggeration to wonder if she'd fool the mosquitoes too, so the bug spray might be a good idea to prevent punctures in skin that wouldn't necessarily heal itself.

    Mosquitoes have a very developed sense of smell; they look for very specific chemicals produced by the human body, then they use visual detection and heat detection to acquire and home in on their hapless victims.

    It is therefore unlikely that just looking like human skin would be enough to fool them.

    I'm in Southern California and I refuse to not wear long pants year round. I hate shorts. Tshirts too for that matter.

    Actually, an eco-freindly fun fact from my days as an oceanography student. Apparently a simple way to avoid mosquitoes is to just wear long sleeves and pants. Mosquitoes are lazy, if it's not conveniently right there in plain sight I guess they don't bother.

    At the very least, Momo's chassis would almost certainly also be radiating heat, if for no other reason than that Marigold wasn't yelping in pain when Momo was spooning her on that first night. You're right that she probably wouldn't be excreting the scents herself (although that top-of-the-line model she was envying might...), but if she rubbed up against a human, who is to say that she wouldn't pick up something?

    And, yes, this is wildly over-thinking the situation. If nothing else, I'm sure that she's doing no harm by applying bug spray and may just be seeing what it feels like.

    Yes, but she has no reason to have veins or arteries, and I am pretty sure mosquitoes use heat detection specifically to locate those and thus determine where they should start drilling for the sweet, sweet nectar. So Momo is safe, as the poor mosquito will see an inedible uniformly warm surface, instead of a lattice of pulsating heat that spells "lunch".

    Speak for yourself. I was clothes shopping recently, and had to go from my usual 34" waist shorts up to a 36" waist because my butt is TOO big for the 34" ones. The clerk made a joke about finding me some apple bottom jeans, and my girlfriend got a good laugh. She tells me she likes my butt all the time. Keep in mind, its not wide, just...bulbous. The opposite of flat.
