I don't think I've ever gotten around to stating in-comic that the Dining Hall vending machines are swapped out and restocked via an elaborate system of chutes and cranes. Thus, one actually WOULD have to look back over all the machines again every day to see if anything new had sprung up since last night.

Well, to the surprise of no one anywhere, I don't have the next Conventional Wisdom update finished yet... but many WOULD be surprised by how close I actually am at this point. That is, that I'm even remotely close at ALL. Keep an eye on things, and I should have it up some time this weekend!

In the meantime, new Voting Incentives are back! Yay! ...I need to get some sleep...

@ Blitz: Have you made the comic where you're either worried about completing the updates or overjoyed at how close you are to having it done yet?

Blitzkrieg1701, October 7th, 2016, 5:19 pm

No, but I HAVE made the comic where I'm flabbergasted by the way all of this disrupts my sleep cycle, and that's ALMOST the same thing.

So, the Spleen Jerky -- vented or unvented? (Personally? I prefer the unvented. Less bitter and more flavorful...)

Yet another vote incentive outfit becomes canonical!

http://fotincentivegallery.smackjeeves.com/chapters/92081/2014-voting-incentives-part- 1/

Not that this one was a particularly unusual or unlikely outfit, but it still counts! And as the original vote incentive title correctly pointed out - extremely cute! You know you're truly adorable if when discussing snot samples, you're still super-cute.

Yes, even in the future there are ridiculous Lawyers. Clearly somebody sued the Crunchy-Munchy-Death-Bites company at some time in the past because their confection did not contain actual Death, and so they had to put up a disclaimer. :(
Which is probably why there are items labeled "Stuff" and "Junk" - no problem with false advertisement there. 100% Lawyer-approved.

@reynard61: I would think the vented spleen would be the less bitter, as the venting removed/released the bitter emotions. The unvented still has all its unreleased bitter emotions.

@Incentive: That's it! Princess Rheiko was actually killed in the Jehytko revolution but they never found the body because she became a Zombie! It all fits! OK, maybe not.

@ Ed8: You do realize that a full quarter of the ridiculous Lawyers became Nitpickers, right? And not just any of the ridiculous Lawyers, but the more skilled ridiculous Lawyers. Hell, I wouldn't be overly surprised if a significant amount of Nitpicker Jobs related to helping lazy Lawyers until either the Nitpicker Organization or the Law decided that a Nitpicker wasn't a Lawyer, and shouldn't be hired to, essentially, do the major parts of a Lawyer's Job (analyzing the evidence for supporting evidence to prove innocence and/or guilt).

Ed8, October 10th, 2016, 8:08 pm

@Darius: A quarter has got to be an over-estimate, there's way too many ridiculous predatory Lawyers for that. They're known to travel in swarms of billions like old-timey locusts, attracted by the scent of anyone making an honest buck (or a dishonest one, they don't discriminate). Nitpicking seems like a much rarer and more prized talent. I think the critical difference is that the Nitpicker's concerns should actually be at least somewhat valid, whereas the Ridiculous Lawyer specializes in sueing over completely invalid concerns (There was no warning on the steaming fresh cup of hot coffee saying that it was hot!! SUE!!)
If anything, I would think that the Nitpicker is the natural enemy of the Ridiculous Lawyer, as they would eliminate any possible loopholes prior to the Lawyer being able to sue. This is why Nitpickers can charge so much - it's still cheaper than paying the Lawyers later.

Darius Drake (Guest), October 11th, 2016, 2:05 am

@ Ed8: Ah, but that's why only the best Quarter of Ridiculous Lawyers became Nitpickers. Not all Nitpickers are like our friend Ichabod, but they all share the ability to pick up the 1 in 100 or 1 in 1,000 detail that someone else missed and expose it. The "better" Ridiculous Lawyers do the exact same thing, but, instead of being employed/making jobs to sue about it, Nitpickers are employed to point their customer's mistakes out to them. Basically, the quarter who left are the quarter who were in it not for the money (though it was a good side benefit), but for the challenge and joy of pointing out something tiny and obscure that SENDS OTHER PEOPLE INTO A BLIND AND EXPENSIVE TO FIX RAGE. These people get their kicks more directly from being a Nitpicker than a Ridiculous Lawyer.

@ Conventional Wisdom: IT UPDATED!
