    And the ship becomes ever more seaworthy.

    Clinton is having the oddest trouble with females these days. He needs to go back to his oddly hot nerdy-stud form.

    Questionable Content 11: It's Like Seeing A Unicorn

    Bubbles, don't break Clinton until after he pays for his repair work.

    Then maybe just crush his hand. If he keeps being a creepster, you might be able to make it into a self-sustaining cycle.

    And he's spineless enough that he wouldn't even rebel over it. Seriously, he apparently keeps getting extorted money by women, and doesn't even seem to mind...

    Who do you think is more spineless, Clinton or Ma3's Gary?

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    In fairness, I wouldn't call Faye's bit extortion. This is what she gets paid for now. Unless she was involved in his getting his hand attached Pintsize, she's just making sure she gets paid for her work.

    I can totally understand wanting to make sure casual acquaintances (and that's really all those two are at the moment) don't think they can hit you up for free work all the time.

    Also remember the very first job they had, was the butt for that one robot girl, and when it was done, she figured it was free and didn't want to pay. So now she's making sure ahead of time everyone is on the same page about the money issue.

    Actually, given that she is one Pintsize roommates, one would likely be less charitable about. The free work is not because her and Clinton are casual acquaintances, but because her friend and roommate is responsible for it. Either stage an intervention and get him under control, cut the little **** out of her life (at least from the "inner circle") or you kinda are going to be held partially responsible for his ****.

    Personally, if Faye demands being paid then Clinton should likely have either demanded Pintsize to pay it or simply called emergency services so they can detach them, arrest the little **** (harassment probably. Possibly assault or battery too) for it, and ruin the whole party.

    Yeah, I'd point out that given how gaga Clinton gets over some things, it's perfectly believable that he was willing to see if Pintsize could be mounted on the attachment for his hand. Pintsize is a jerk, but he usually doesn't assault people (which is what doing it against Clinton's will would entail).

    Considering how famous (infamous?) they are for staying cutting edge on their marketing (wendys twitter roasts) the idea of handing out wendy pattern skin coloring isnt that strange in this universe.

    Not sure if it's that smart to scan the other hand... shouldn't they wait and then scan the cybernetic one, just in case it's not 100% the same form? I mean yes, she says it's elastic and can compensate some, but why not do it right?

    I'm pretty sure Bubbles' comment was meant to be read as "don't worry about it, I'm the author and I say this way will work", at least for the purposes of answering that concern.

    I suspect the measurements of the scan will also be used in determining the final dimensions of the prosthesis. They gotta match, right?

    Wait, have we had any indication that that was an issue? I've been working under the assumption that they were like modern prosthetics unless otherwise indicated, like being a lot closer to a real hand than what we have so far.

    I figured it was so it would look like he had an actual hand and not some kind of Uncanny Valley effect. But the Wendy's suggestion might be an argument against that.

    Well, they're taking it apart and putting it all back together, so there's probably some flexibility in terms of final dimensions. If they wanted to readjust bits, this would be the time to do it.

    What I was intending to get at is that your left fingerprints are not mirror images of your right finger prints, so if they did copy the fingerprints they would be unrealistic because they would be exact mirror copies of the real ones on his left hand.

    Three possibilities:
    One, fingerprints on prosthetics must remain consistent for legal reasons in case of criminal investigation, in which case he should have a record of what they were on his broken prosthetic (or they could check directly, I don't think the fingers were too badly damaged).
    Two, fingerprints on prosthetics exist only for grip reasons, so who cares, they can do what they like as long as it works. Possibly the scan isn't that precise anyway.
    Three, the covering can't hold ridges that tiny, there's no prints.

    I'd say probably one of the last two.

    Honestly I don't see how pintsize could have done that by himself without cooperation, I mean he doesn't even have proper hands and is too small to reach if Clinton just lifts his arm. I guess he might have gotten Clinton in his sleep but the connection is at his back, unless it is a connection you just press in it sounds infeasible.

    That would work, if they were being reasonable. If they weren't, then hi-jinks, which may be the plan, but probably isn't.

    Come to think of it, have fingerprints ever been a plot point? I can't recall any off the top of my head, but there are a lot of comics, so...
