    Without working in the field, I feel like people who go into the job with this expectation won't last long. I don't know how desensitizing the job is but yes, I've also heard it can be... discouraging to your libido.
    But I guess that is true for many jobs. Only few manage to keep their passion when it becomes mundane.

    Well... without putting myself too far out there, I'm currently in a field where there are often scenarios that are Relevant To My InterestsTM, but I don't find it difficult to compartmentalize my feelings and tell myself that I'm at work, and not at play, as it were.

    Granted it could just be the Asexuality going "wait that's an actual human and not an image on a screen that we can pretend is fictional for the sake of physical gratification" and just shutting off the reaponse before it gets anywhere.

    Well, this is a bakery. I don't have any specific knowledge as to how bakery baking and enthusiast baking differ, but the difference between enthusiast gourmand and restaurant cook are staggering. I can see the same being the case here (in no small part because you want the baked goods to be ready by ~6am, when you want to start selling to customers on their way to work).

    Food photography might be a closer analogy.

In this situation, this is at least actual bread being made to end up in the same format Roko is aroused by, etc.

    Cold fermentation is a common thing in artisan bakeries these days. It can cause a better gluten structure and gives the yeast more time to develop flavourful compounds - some places with let their dough cold ferment in a temperature controlled chamber for three to five days.

    Does it take longer to ferment compared to warm environment?

    Basically any chemical process takes longer at low temperatures. Fermentation taking longer in particular is why we have refrigerators.

    That was dangerously close to Melon and Emily having on-screen interactions. I'm always worried that they'll form a feedback loop that grows into some sort of weirdness singularity that consumes the universe in a Big Crunch.

    But would it be a big crunch of sanity or a big bang of insanity? Or are they equivalent?

    Also, anybody care to explain to me where the Metal Gear reference is hidden?

    I think he's forgotten how to draw her. She's looked radically different the last 3 or 4 times we've seen her, changing heights, hair length, facial features. It's only the hair color and that she works in CoD that gives away who it is. Even then it's hard to separate her from Emily.

    I thought it was Emily until Emily showed up in the last panel. Afterwards went back and noticed the gauges in her ears thought about whether Emily wears tank tops much, etc. I guess it doesn't really look like Emily, so much as it just looks like 'a black-haired woman' and you have to piece it together through outside clues. Regardless, it does not look like the Dora I mentally picture.

    The old Dora, in my mind, looked like Marten.

    I'm genuinely surprised that so many people didn't recognise Dora. Sure, her art has changed over the years, but she has consistently had the same rounded eyes and tanned skin (her... father? is Italian if I remember right) compared to Emily who has paler skin and almond-shaped eyes.

    Japanese actor Naoki Tatsuta played the voice of Solokov in Metal Gear Solid 3; he also plays a character in the Dragon Ball anime/games named Oolong. As in, the tea.

    I Google'd that for a minute or two; I didn't *know* it because I'm not a psychopath.

    As people pointed out her appearance changes drasticly between comics, and then she only shows up two or three times before vanishing again for a month or two. So by the time she shows up it's "black haired woman in CoD".

    Im guessing scrubbing her face excessively because its not right or some such thing. I forget what its called but im fairly sure there is a mental condition this parallels where you get a reaction like that. Or maybe im just thinking of those movies where the character kills someone and cant stop trying to scrub the blood off in a panic even when its all gone.

    ...that's Lady Macbeth. But there is a Polanski movie of Macbeth, and I guess that there are more.

    Under normal conditions, I would expect such a page to be just a setup. Creating tension for an emotional outbreak in the next pages. I don't think that's how QC normally works, though -- it's more about "one page, one punch", even when the pages are connected by a storyline.
